Thank you so much for reading!! Please tell me what you think of this episode!



  1. This is one of my favorite episodes. It's funny, lovely and sad at the same time.

    Robin and his gang are attacked by by some men. We meet Legrand, who has such a funny deep laugh. Legrand gives Robin a message, which lead him, the gang and Legrand to the treasure of nation. Which is Queen Eleanor, who is the mother of prince John and king Richard. Queen Eleanor is very fond of John and calls him Big Bear.

    This also the episode where Guy finds out that Marian is the Nightwatchman! Oh no, problems ahead! Guy is shocked and hurt at the same time. He gets very angry on Marian and makes a bad decision. She has to die. EEEKKKK! HOW AWFUL OF YOU GUY!
    Happily, Guy and Allan trick the sheriff, who finally is happy to have the capture the Nightwatchman. Allan plays the Nightwatchman and Marian goes free. And then Marian wants to escape, but Guy begs her not to go.''Stay and make this place bearable''. And you know what, she stays.

    Robin, the queen, Legrand and the gang get attacked by soldiers of the sheriff. Legrand dies, so sad. Even John cried, because he found someone who looks a lot like him.

    1. Yes, same here! We really think alike!!

      Legrand is such a funny character, I do wish we would have seen more of him. Robin and the gang are beginning to think that they have gone on a wild goose chase, when they find Queen Eleanor! "Big Bear" The gang isn't going to stop teasing John! ;)

      I had seen this episode before, but thankfully I had forgotten this part! I was so worried, I really thought Marian was going to be hanged, and that Robin would never know. I don't think he ever did know that Guy knew Marian was the night-watchman, maybe Allan told him? I do love Allan, he risked his life for her. I was glad that Guy wasn't ngry at her after that, but how could she stay!!!!?????

      I will miss Legrand, he was nice even though we didn't get to see him much. Poor John.

      Thanks for the great comment!!!

  2. Aha, Legrand! I liked Legrand, even though this episode is not that fun. His laugh makes you laugh. I did not like the queen. She was...I don't know how you explain this. A bit overbaring, is that the word? Anyhow, I found her a tinsy bit annoying. It was sad though, that Legrand died. But the thing I liked, was that Guy finally showed his ''nice'' side. And Allan pretending as the Nightwatchman, risking his own life. Guy was rude to Allan though. I don't see why.

    1. Legrand was very likable! Yes, I did like Legrand and I was sad to see that we don't get to see him again. That sentence doesn't make and sense.
      Anyway, that is the perfect word to discribe Queen Eleanor! They were trying to make the actress be queenly, but she definitely is overbaring. Tinsy bit annoying. ;)
      In some episodes I really do not like Guy, but this is one of the good episodes!! Allan is great, even when Guy is rude to him.

      Thanks for the awesome comment!!
