Congratulations, Armand and Treville! I’m so pleased you’ve successfully solved EVERY SINGLE PROBLEM facing France which obviously you have if you’ve got nothing more pressing to attend to than this contest that is essentially you two boys saying MY daddy personal private army can totally beat up YOUR daddy personal private army.
(And here I’d beren thinking Treville was the calm reasonable one.)
Well, okay, it could be argued the contest is really Louis’s idea (which is how you automatically know it’s stupid), but since Armand and Treville have by this time managed to pretty effectively wind each other up,
it sounds like a SUPERAWESOME idea to them, even though they of all people should know better.
At least in the end d’Artagnan does FINALLY become an official Musketeer* which seriously about time, but I just wish the third to last episode with Armand had contained a lot more substance and a lot less Vinnie Jones.
*We’ll overlook the part where d’Artagnan had no business even being part of the contest since he WASN’T one of Treville’s Musketeers when he did the fighting which was kind of the whole point of the thing in the first place, but whatever.
The Musketeers started 3 years ago, on january 19th, 2014. With Santiago Cabrera, Howard Charles, Luke Pasqualino, Tom Burke, Maimie McCoy, Alexandra Dowling, Tamla Kari,
Ryan Gage, Hugo Speer & Peter Capaldi.
Wherever we draw breath, make a stand, save a life, that is the garrison, we are the garrison. ALL FOR ONE & ONE FOR ALL!
I think it’s time to recapitulate what The Musketeers cast is doing now that the show is over. Thanks to @hottiemcgreeneyes for doing most of the job.

You know, Armand, being all Monsieur SuperCool!Guy with your I-guess-we’ll-just-have-to-wait-and-see response to the king’s query would be slightly more believable if we hadn’t literally seconds before seen you being all Monsieur SuperPANICKING!Guy with your semi-buddy Treville* and asking a different version of the same question only with a lot more Dramatic!Glaring! plus a little hat.
*(Treville who is in this instance really IS Monsieur SuperCool!Guy)
I’m just saying perhaps NOT Armand’s finest moment in terms of his reputation as the all-knowing all-powerful Oz First Minister, especially since he has his tiny total freakout right in front of the Duke and Gontard – who both hate his guts – except that luckily for Armand they have to be the least observant suspicious people EVER even when there might as well be a neon sign over Armand’s head saying CARDINAL OBVIOUSLY UP TO SOMETHING:
Everyone should watch BBC’s The Musketeers because it is absolutely amazing. I just finished catching up on its latest season this past weekend and OMG. SO AWESOME!!
There’s sword fights and love stories and politics and its just got everything.
And OH YEAH, one more tiny little bit of information that I think you all should know….
THERE ARE SO MANY ATTRACTIVE MEN IN LEATHER ON THIS SHOW. LIKE…SO MANY.
Here’s some incentive to start watching.
AND DON’T WORRY, I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST. HERE ARE MY 3 PERSONAL FAVORITES BUT I LOVE THEM ALL!
AND IF MEN AREN’T YOUR CUP OF TEA, CHECK OUT THE WOMEN ON THIS SHOW!!
AND MANY MORE!!! (it would just take forever to put a pic of ever cast member to ever be on the show) lol
THE COSTUMES ON THIS SHOW ARE SO BEAUTIFUL…THEY MAKE THE ALREADY INSANELY ATTRACTIVE CAST EVEN MORE ATTRACTIVE!!!
Ok, but in all seriousness, all these actors are incredibly talented and this show is really worth watching. The fights are awesome and it really transports you to another time. I love it! Can’t wait to see what Season 3 brings!!!
