Thank you so much for reading! What do you think about this episode?



  1. I didn't really like this episode. It was okay, but not my favourite. The man and Marian, Robin Hood and Allan fighting above a boiling pot, Robin dressing as one of the Black Knights and trying to kill everyone. The letter he wrote to Marian was sad, though. And the face Will made when the guard discovered the sword in the harp, but though he just broke it. And those silly clothes they're wearing. :) It was a nice episode, but again, not my favourite.

    1. Yes, same here. I didn't like the man, he was a traitor. And Robin with Allan fighting, Robin almost lost when he saw Marian chained up, it distracted him. That letter was very sad!
      "Who's is this?"
      "It's mine."
      "Oh, this came off."
      They all thought they were going to get in trouble!!

      Thanks for your comment!!!

  2. Ooohh, this episode. DON'T like this one.

    That man who handcuffed Marian and who commanded that she stays with him. She refused, but I didn't worked. Even Guy didn't do the trouble to save her from that awful man. Not so brave of you Guy.
    Robin Hood dressing himself as one of the black knights, I'd say it is very risky. Of course the sheriff is prepared for you Robin, you can't defeat the sheriff, how hard you try, you won't succeed.

    That letter Robin wrote for Marian, that was sad and lovely at the same time. I hope they eventually get together, no worries for both of them and that they can live happily. :)

    Those silly clothes, hahaha, made me laugh. And the face Will makes when the guard almost discovers their wapens, that's funny too.

    It is a lovely and funny episode, but not my favorite.

    1. Yes, it is not my favorite.

      Winchester was not nice at all! Guy did try to save her at first, but then the Sheriff talked him out of it. Come on, Guy! What was the deal there? But then the Sheriff did have a plan.
      That wasn't a good idea, Robin. Nottingham would be destroyed if it had worked!

      Very much so! It was very rude of the gang to read it. I hope they do to, that would just be so good!!!

      Which one of the gang came up with those clothes? They are so crazy!!!

      Yes, same here.

      Thanks for your comment, Rachel!!
