  1. I don't really like this episode.

    There is one guy who pretends to be the nightwatchman and give the poor food, with some stuff in it that makes them ill. So, they must go in isolated camp where no one can go out. Marian finds out that there is someone who is pretending to be the Nightwatchman. She is worried. Robin finds out that the the people are ill and helps them with the gang.

    There is that cute moment between Marian and Robin. Marian sneaks through the roofs to see Robin and help him, and then, after finding Robin, she falls in his arms. :) Cute, isn't it?

    The man, who plays the Nightwatchman, tries to kill Robin, but it never works. It almost worked by his other members of the gang, but Robin stops it just in time. The man flight and seeks protection of the sheriff.
    Djaq finds a plant that can help the people getting better.

    I don't like this episode. However the moment between Marian and Robin was cute. And some other things were fun, can't remember what. :)

    1. Same here.

      He claims that he is doing "science" but he is just killing people, and that is not nice at all.

      That is I think, my favorite part of this episode, it is just a really sweet part! My inner romantic is coming out. :) It is very cute!! :)

      Marian figures it out just in time! Then Robin could save the other members of the gang! Little John's idea worked really well! Then in the castle Will tries to kill the Sheriff by the poison, but Robin pretends to drink the poison so they must get the antidote.

      Yes, it was a bit of a scary episode, besides that. :)

      Thank you for commenting!!!

  2. I actually liked this episode. I mean, there were some things that were not fun at all(like Will's father died, and Will is being very very angry and wants to kill the sherrif),but also things I did like(Marian and Robin-moments :), Djaq talking to Will and stopping him from run to the guards, that sort of things) Oh, and then when everyone is dressed up in forest colors and scaring Dan and Luke Scarlett. And then Djaq like: ''You know these people?'' Well, I liked this episode, it had a lot of fun things.

    1. I didn't like that Will's father died, but I did like those other things!! I really liked everyone forest costumes, they were really cool! I really liked Allan's arm paint that looked like a tree branch! I had forgotten that Djaq haddn't met them before, it was a nice reunion!!

      Thanks for your comment, Ruth!!!
