While you had a chance last week to bear witness to the season 3 premiere of “The Musketeers,” BBC One is changing things around today in reflection of some recent events.
Following the stunning news of Muhammad Ali’s death this weekend, the network is now airing a tribute in the form of the documentary “The Greatest” this weekend. “The Musketeers” is going to be off the air until next Saturday, when episode 2 will air. We certainly do not blame the network for this decision, given that Ali was one of the most influential athletes in the history of the world. Boxing was never more relevant than when he was at his prime, and we’re not sure it will ever be more relevant again.
For “The Musketeers,” there are still many more stories to come within this final season, and as a result of that, we presume many more surprises. The show remains wall-to-wall fun, so of course we’re excited to see what happens next. If somehow you missed the teaser for episode 2 we dropped last week, here it is again for your reading pleasure:
“With Paris on the brink of starvation, Grimaud and Feron join forces with the Duke of Beaufort to win the king’s business by framing the city’s refugees for grain theft. D’Artagnan’s hot temper makes him a Red Guard target and lands him in the chatelet with the victims, whose execution date looms. One man down, the musketeers race to discover the truth. Spirited refugee Sylvie catches Athos’ attention and he vows to prove her friends’ innocence – but is he wise to trust her? With a spy in their midst, can the musketeers break the conspirators’ grip on Paris before the refugees hang?”
