Tonight’s new episode of “The Musketeers” is a story that played on a variety of different themes, whether it be espionage, thievery, honor, or survival. Basically, it provided you with almost everything that you could possibly want in an hour.
What we do know is that after this episode, we could see quite a few upset over the “punishment” (or lack thereof) that Gaston received over the course of the hour. For one, he was not even sent back into exile; you also have to remember precisely what some of the crimes were that he committed to begin with. Still, we feel like Louis will eventually start to understand reason and figure out the right thing. He did at least get imprisoned, and did his part to issue a few threats there in the process … though we don’t quite think that is going to matter much in the end.
Romance-wise, is it time for Athos to be happy? Maybe; we at least think that his scenes fulfilled the romance quota for the hour, while Constance and Sylvie brought it when it comes to heroism. We’re not willing to say that anything was necessarily resolved over the course of the hour, but it was fun entertainment and a stepping stone to what’s next.
In the end, this final season continues to press on in a way that you would want: With action, intensity, violence, and above all, excitement. This is a classic show about good versus evil, and while the former does not always win (after all, not everyone got out of this episode in good shape — poor Josephine), we do want to believe it can.
