‘The Musketeers’ season 3, episode 5 video: Handling a prison crisis

The Musketeers -

We know that it has been a little while since there has been anything even remotely resembling scheduling consistency when it comes to “The Musketeers.” Therefore, we are now at the point where we will celebrate even the simple things, and that includes something as simple as a new episode airing on BBC One on Sunday instead of Saturday. (Yep, there is still some sort of scheduling switcheroo, but we’ve seen worse.)

In the sneak peek below, you get what is almost this show’s own version of a prison break, complete with an insanely passionate speech (which may or may not be accurate) and some sword-fighting galore. It’s typical Musketeers fare, but there is certainly not anything wrong with that when it comes to entertainment and we will gladly take that and run with it while we further await the remainder of the story this weekend.

If you haven’t caught the episode’s synopsis yet, it gives you a little bit more of a sense as to how this prison-break situation comes to pass in the first place:

“The musketeers battle to restore order in Paris after Grimaud and Feron stage an ambitious Chatelet breakout, setting free a lunatic with murderous designs on the Louvre. Using one prisoner’s unlikely talents to rob the royal vault, the plotters prepare to make their first move against the king. But ailing Feron is distracted, and his ruthless silencing of an unwelcome visitor could be Grimaud’s undoing. Ambitions collide during the Dauphin’s birthday party, where a kind act by d’Artagnan pushes lovers together and ends in catastrophe.”
