Thanks for reading this post! What do you think of this episode?



  1. Oh, this one was great! With Robin proposing, Lardner fooling the sherrif and Guy, Allan helping out Will and Lardner when Lardner took the keys. Definitely a good one! The domper on it though, was that Marian went back to the castle. Not what I was hoping for the first time we watched this.

    1. This one was really great! Robin proposed! *happies*
      Lardner did get away, but the Sheriff and Guy don't know that! It wassad that Marian had to go back, but she will be more helpful in the castle!

      Thanks for commenting, Ruth!

  2. Oooohh this episode is great! Love this one!

    Yeah, who in the world is Ladner?! It appears to be a dove, who has a special message for Robin. I felt sorry for the man who brought the message to Robin, he died. :(

    Awww, the proposal!! Cute! Definitely something for Robin, proposing by a fresh grave. But Marian said YES!!!!!!! Hurray, finally they are getting married. But trouble comes forward, faster then you think.

    Allan helps Will, which is good, because he wins back the trust of the gang. Ladner fooling the sheriff, he has now idea who Ladner is.:)

    Oh no, this is the episode where Marian goes back to the castle, NOOO! Marian, why do you keep coming back to Guy, the sheriff and his castle. All right, she had no choice, Robin was in danger, and getting back to the castle was actually the only way out. She promised to marry Robin and watch out for information of the sheriff for him.

    1. Yes it is! It is fun to watch!!

      I like the part when both the fool and Djaq are explaining it, I had not understood before that. It was even sadder that Robin had knew him. :(

      I was just so happy! Well, except that it was over a fresh grave. Nice going Robin. ;) But his speech was so wonderful! I love it to itsy bitsy pieces!! Trouble does come quickly! :O

      The Sheriff got the wrong bird and Robin waas able to send the king the right one!

      I was sad because Robin and Marian were just getting to where they could work together in the camp!!! She could have gone with Robin when the gang got Robin out but, I can see why she had to.

      Thanks for your comment, Rachel!!

  3. Da proposal, though. <3 <3 <3

    Sorry I haven't been over here to comment on the watchalong, by the way! I still think it's SO cool that you're doing it. :D

    And that quote from Marian, "This isn't what I want to do; it's what I have to do." :'(

    Keep it up! Thanks for the fun posts! :D

    1. <3 <3 <3!!! It made me so happy!!!

      That is totally fine!! Thank you, it is so nice of you to say that!! :D It has been very fun so far!!

      As soon as she said that I knew I would have to put it in this review, even though it made me sad.

      Thank you! I will! :D
