Does it really feel like we are already three episodes into the new season of “The Musketeers“? In some ways definitely, given that the pacing of the stories so far has been rather quick. However, at the same time there are some out there still who probably don’t even know that the series is back yet. The way that the BBC promotes shows, especially when it comes to how the announce premiere dates, leaves something to be desired.
What we are intrigued about by next week’s new episode is that at the center of it, we have a woman convinced that she is hearing some sort of visions from an outside source.
“The Musketeers investigate Emilie of Duras, a woman claiming to have visions from God which instruct her to lead her thousands of followers into war with Spain. As word of Emilie’s visions triggers violent anti-Spanish riots, Aramis is sent to discredit her before she pushes France into an ill-timed war with Spain.
“Meanwhile Rochefort continues to clash with Spanish Ambassador Perales. He resorts to blackmail and murder to resolve the problem.”
Well, resorting to blackmail and murder probably is not going to help anything in the long run, is it? That’s one of the fun things about almost any show these days: Watching something knowing full well that it could end up causing some major story consequences later. We’ll just have to see what happens this time when the show returns to the BBC on Friday.
