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-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.
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.
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.
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
When the assassin goes to cross the Earl of
Brompton off his list it's already been crossed off.
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
I don't think Marion would be caught dead
wearing a dress like that to bed. Then again I think that may have been
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
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?
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.
When the assassin throws the dead messenger
to his buddies in bondage gear doesn't the messenger look a LOT like Robin?
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.
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.
Marion is worried about Robin? Lemme ask ye
somethin, when isn't she worried about Robin?
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
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!
When Percy comes back from beyond he's missing
his black floral scarf from around his neck.
If you listen carefully when Robin is whispering
to Lord Hazelmere you'll hear Tuck repeat himself talking about a "mystical
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.
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
When Percy is talking to Robin, Marion and
Jillian he is once again wearing the black floral scarf he was missing
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.
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.
