Laydee Laura's Misguided Tour
Percy's Ghost
(or, Ain't Payback a Pain?)


Percy performs his act, purporting to communicate with the dead and ends up having to communicate from beyond his own grave. Robin scoffs at Percy's claim to speak with the dead and when Percy dies has to play the same part himself. Shows how everyone -- even Robin Hood -- has to be careful how we play the game of life, because you never know when or how it's going to come back and bite you.
 KNIFE TRICK:
The assassin ought to be worried that using his distinctive weapon would make him an easy target to find. Lucky for him forensic medicine hasn't been invented yet.

PARA-WHATSIS?:
para-normal - beyond that which is considered normal. Back in Robin's day "paranormal" was considered witchcraft and you would be burned at the stake or hung for it.

SPICE GIRL:
Cardamom comes from India and even today is rather expensive. No wonder Robin's request raised an eyebrow: in Medieval times only Kings and Emperors could have afforded it.

MELON-CHOLY:
No Rob, she doesn't have the best melons in town. If that melon could survive a blow like that it means the melon is rock hard and unripe.

HAIR-EM SCARE-EM:
How can Robin see to fight with his hair flinging in his eyes like that? Good thing he's got a choreographer to tell him what to do.

THAT'LL TEACH HER:
After Robin and Marion bounce the soldier around Marion spins her sword hilt in her hand like we've seen Robin do in the past! So Marion, what else has Robin been teaching you?

STICK 'EM UP:
The assassin has his beard tied on with cord, but his 'stache is glued on. Why didn't he just glue both the beard and the 'stache?

STRIKE THAT:
When the assassin goes to cross the Earl of Brompton off his list it's already been crossed off.

PARIS MATCH:
Tuck concludes the chef must have studied in Paris after she kisses him. How can he really be sure when she didn't even French kiss him? LOL

NIGHTIE KNIGHT:
I don't think Marion would be caught dead wearing a dress like that to bed. Then again I think that may have been Valenteen's intention.

INVISIBLE MAN:
Robin tells Tuck and Little John that he's going to go outside and make himself visible..... FINALLY after all these years of our pestering!

LONG LOST BROTHER:
Does anyone else recognize Lord Hazelmere's messenger? It's Sean, one of Robin's friends from the first season! He's not easy to spot, because in a season of longer hair he's decided to cut his.

INTERCEPTED:
Did the assassin know the messenger was going to be in the square and interrupting Percy's show, or was it just a case of being in the right place at the right time?

CRY WOLF:
The assassin tells everyone that Prince John's guards killed the messenger. We all know from previous episodes that had Prince John's guards killed the messenger they would have ridden up to the stage and killed him in front of everyone, not caring who saw. 

DEAD RINGER:
When the assassin throws the dead messenger to his buddies in bondage gear doesn't the messenger look a LOT like Robin?

OLD GUARD:
The two visiting earls fight pretty good for a couple of old guys, especially the earl whose granddaughter told him he was ill and couldn't go.

HEAD CASE:
I wish I had an insurance policy on Robin's noggin. He keeps getting hit in the head. What is this the sixth or seventh time since the first episode?

HE WENT WITH HIS BOOTS ON:
Why did they put Robin to bed with his boots on? I can understand if they figured he'd wake up in an hour or so... but he's been unconscious for almost a day. 

YOU ASKED FOR IT!:
One of the Outlaws favorite Robin Hood scenes.... The Headslap! Why do we like it so much? Is it because women find men who have a sense of humor attractive? Is it because we've never really seen Robin participate in the more slapstick elements of the show? Whatever the reason, this "Matthew Moment" is the reason why this episode is one of our very favorites.

WORRY WORT:
Marion is worried about Robin? Lemme ask ye somethin, when isn't she worried about Robin? 

BOW TIED:
The assassin just questioned his men and made sure they tied her up. So why does he go and cut her loose so he can question her?

NICE LOCATION:
The bad guys didn't pick a very good place for their camp. How can they hide when you can see in the background two very obvious wheel tracks where wagons and carts (and offroad vehicles) must travel with some frequency?

I WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR LOVE:
Percy can't believe Robin is going to submit to Karin Stanovich's exorcism. He oughta know sometimes men do strange things for the women they love.

HEY, WHERE'D HE GO?:
We know Robin can see what's happening to Percy as he begins to glow and disappear. Tuck and Karin Stanovich don't seem to see what's happening, but Marion does!

TIE REQUIRED:
When Percy comes back from beyond he's missing his black floral scarf from around his neck.

WINE COUNTRY:
If you listen carefully when Robin is whispering to Lord Hazelmere you'll hear Tuck repeat himself talking about a "mystical wine."

HALF RIGHT:
Valenteen: "For years you've mistaken me for a philanderer and a fool." Considering his behavior towards Marion throughout the show I'd say at least the philanderer part is dead on right.

FUNNY FACE:
Everyone is fighting for their lives and their freedom, and all Percy can do to help Jillian is make silly faces!

FLIP TO MY LOU:
The assassin disarms Robin and Robin responds with a breathtaking backflip off the windowsill. It's Wall Walk #2 and the only drawback is that the whole wall wavers as he does it.

RING AROUND THE ROSES:
Why in the middle of a big fight where people are trying to kill him does Lord Hazelmere stop to inspect the trampled roses?

TIE DIE:
When Percy is talking to Robin, Marion and Jillian he is once again wearing the black floral scarf he was missing earlier.

MARK MY WORDS:
Percy appears to everyone,.. Robin and Marion exit stage left and go to their marks to await the end of the scene.



FINAL SCORE:
This episode has a little of everything: romance, action, mystery, ghosts, comedy. What's not to like? It's got to be one of the best episodes.
