By the way, who saw the eclipse? It was so amazing!!

Thanks for reading! Please tell me what you think of this episode!



  1. This wasn't a favourite of mine either! Guy finally became nice, that was good, and in the inn where they were throwing with food and screaming, that was funny! I really don't like Archer, he betrayed his own brothers(well half-brothers). He did truly care for the old man in the prison, and he gave food to the prisoners. But I still dislike him.

    1. Not a good one. Guy is nice, and that scene was hilarious because they both think the other will do the plan. We meet Archer and he is, well, let's just say not the best character. He is nice in some ways, but he is always trying to get money, so he betrayed Guy and Robin.

  2. This isn't one of my favorites!

    The good thing was that Guy became really nice, and the food throwing in the inn was quite funny.

    Allright, let me say I don't like Archer. He is too cheeky and I didn't liked the scenes with the wife of the sherrif of York. Ugh! And, Archer betrayed his own half-brothers, not good. He gave food to all the prisoners and took care of an old man, that was good. But that doesn't make me to like him. I still don't like him.

    1. Agreed!

      That was one of the best things in this series! Guy can be so nice when he wants to be! :) They are a good team.

      I don't like Archer either. He is way too cheeky and those scenes were so bad. Bleh! Come on, Archer, then helped to get you out, okay not really, but it's the thought that counts! It was nice of him to give food to the other prisoners. I, too, still don't like him.
