  1. Hmm, I didn't like this one so much, but it was okay. Matilda was funny sometimes: ''Grow a real beard, or shave it off.'' Well, I didn't like this one that much. It was...The sheriff trying to drown someone...it was funny though that they pumped air for her, and the sheriff was all angry. And Will and Allan when they pumped, so suspicious for eachother. Robin only really trusted Will, because he used him to find the traitor. He should have given Allan a second chance though. Even if he was a traitor, he said he didn't want to do it anymore, no more money for information.

    1. I didn't like this one as much either. Matilda was really funny, but she did have some not so nice comments. "Make up your mind!" ;) Drowning is not a fun thing and I am so glad that Robin and his gang saved her!! Will and Allan were very suspisious and at one point Much had to say, "Keep pumping!" because Will forgot!
      Robin did save Will's life so he was pretty sure that he wouldn't be it, but then again, he also saved Allan twice. I do think he would have changed!

      Thanks for talking about this episode with me!

  2. Didn't liked this episode so much.

    The scenes with Matilda are funny, and the scenes of Henry Lowes are funny too. Matilda must make Henry better, after she has been taken from her daughter, who is expecting a baby. Instead of making Henry better, she lets him drink something that confused his brain. So, he rambles all things. Robin helps Matilda en convince her to give Henry that drink.

    The sheriff finds out that Matilda helped her and wants to prove if she is a witch of not. So, she must dive in a chair, and with the help of Robin, she escapes.

    While her mother is away, Matilda's daughter finds help of the other members of the gang and gets her baby, with the help of John. Don't know what she called the baby, but I think it was Alice.

    Oh Allan, why did you needed to spy for Guy of Gisbourne, it does take a long time for you to be joining the gang again. Why of why!

    1. Same here.

      Henry was really funny when Matilda gave him the drink that made him goofy! Rosa was nice, it would have been nice to see more of her.

      That is the not so nice part! It is bad that the Sheriff was trying to drown her! Why does he kill so many people?

      Yes, it was Alice because she was taking to Little John and learned that his wife had been named Alice.

      Allan! You were such a good character! Why, oh why, did you ever have to do it!

      Thanks for your comment!!
