Thank you so much for reading!!!! Please be sure to tell what you think about this episode!



  1. Loved this episode! Except the fact we meet Kate.

    When I first met her, I thought she would be so different, not so annoying. Actually, they wanted to replace Marian, but they didn't succeed.
    NO ONE CAN REPLACE MARIAN!! NOOO ONE!! Sorry for the shoutout, I couldn't help it.

    Robin gets captured and is locked in a dark cell and later someone called Finn, isn't that his name, is joining him too. Don't know why he is going in prison, but never mind.

    Kate her brother is killed by Guy of Gisborne and she blames Robin. She is very angry of him, but later she suddenly changes, she likes him. Ugh, Kate, be normal!

    Lovely review MovieCritic! I love chatting with you about the three seasons.

    1. Everything was pretty good, except that.

      Yes! I thought that she would be nice! I did think that she was just a character for that episode, but I didn't think that she would continue or be so annoying. SHOUT ALL YOU LIKE!!! That is why this post is here, to talk, shout, and debate Robin Hood BBC!! Marian is the best character in the whole series, no one can replace her!!!

      Yes, Finn is his name, and he tries to break Robin out, but his brother tells on him, so he gets put in there too. But, they escape, and what an escape!!!!

      Her brother was killed only because Guy was threatening to kill Kate unless Robin came out, and Robin did come out, but Matthew got worried and tried to save her. "Kate, be normal!" I like that!!

      Thank you! I have loved chatting with you!!!

  2. I didn't like this episode that much. This is were we meet Kate and it's just, all in all, not my favourite(Kate is so annoying). It was funny though when Robin escaped and the sherrif was so mad!

    1. There were likable bits, and unlikable bits. I didn't like it the first time I saw it, but I didn't mind it this time. Everything Robin does is in style, and escaping prison is no exception! :)
