    1. The comment above should be somewhere else, that's why I deleted it.

      This is one of my favorite episodes from season 1. It didn't liked it that Guy forced Marian to marry him, but it was acutally good, because now Robin and Marian are talking about their seriously problems between both of them.

      The scene where Marian ALMOST died, was quite scary when I watched it the first time. I really thought she was dying. On the other side, she couldn't died, because otherwise the show wouldn't end so well. Because, Marian is one of the best female characters in the show, without her, it's so...empty. Anyway, I was really relieved that she wasn't dead.
      Aww, Allan. He always notice the little things in life. The gang may be lucky to have him, he discovered that Marian is actually alive.

      This was a lovely episode. Lovely review MovieCritic!

    2. Even though this is a scary episode, it and the next one might be my favorites! Oh yes! My inner romantic comes out in this episode, and I get so happy!

      When I first watched it I was so confused and sad, I was thinking, "Can this be happening? But, what about the other seasons? What is Robin Hood without Marian?" I, too, was so relieved!
      Allan is one of my favorite characters! I am so happy that he saw that she was breathing! And Djaq, too, she saved Marian!

      Thank you so much!

  2. Oh, this one was quite a favourite of mine, because Robin and Marian are finally really talking about their own problems between themselves. I really thought(the first time we watched the series) that she was dead. But she wasn't! Allan was observant enough to see that she was breathing.
    ''I'm not being funny, but...she's breathing.''
    But also, one of the less nice facts, is that Will and Allan wanted to go away with all the money. It makes up again when they still came back to help the gang.
    'What is going on! Robin Hood doesn't kill!' Robin was so furious about Marians death, that he just shot with his bow to any person he saw.
    'She is...she is...'
    'She's dead. Marian is dead.' That was a sad part. And Allan and Will were just like ''what?!''
    Then they all stood in the cave, saying nice things about Marian, until Allan noticed she was alive.
    All in all, I really liked the episode.

    1. This is quite a good episode! I, too, was so sad the first time I saw it! This sounds weird, but I have actually watched this episode more times than any of the other episodes because this is one of my favorite episode and whenever I am in the mood for Robin Hood BBC, I watch this episode!
      I was mad at Will and Allan, but they made up for it!
      I was sad that Robin was killing people, he should have taken his sadness and anger out in a different way.
      I really like this episode too!!!
