I know lots of people are always on about Aramis and Porthos together and it is kinda obvious why. But I’m intrigued by Athos and Aramis and their relationship. Just remembered there are two scenes where they also have almost the same lines and are in similar - quite dire - situations.
Season 1, episode 1, Friends and Enemies: Athos: Come on, shoot, damn you!
Season 3, episode 8, Prisoners of War: Aramis: Do it. Shoot! Now!
Is it really only that Aramis would gladly give his life in duty to make sure that Grimaud gets killed, too? Or is there more to it? I wouldn’t go as far as to call it a death wish which Athos in the very first episode surely had.
I really do miss some
kind of talk between Athos and Aramis after this happened.
I mean, season 3 is basically full of missing scenes but this really sticks out to me.
Anyone else got any thoughts on this or on Athos and Aramis in general?
Not being a person who feels much shame, Aramis has few
humiliating memories. In fact, I’d go so far to say that he’s only felt this on
someone else’s behalf, never his own. So, the memory of watching other boys get
yelled at while in school will still make him cringe. Same with fellow soldiers
getting chewed when the commanding officer aired a soldier’s secrets publicly
as punishment. (These memories are also tinged with a lot of anger.) He’s had
far fewer of these bad memories since coming under the command of Treville, and
that makes him very happy.
