The Musketeers Series 2 Episode 6

7890575-high-‘Through a Glass Darkly’

The royal party are gathered to watch the eclipse but a dramatic turn of events puts everyone at risk.

Marmion is a royal astronomer with a grudge against the royal family. This episode deals with the fragility of fate, chance and the flip of a coin.

Ryan Gage as the King certainly shows a King in turmoil when the fate of others is truly put in his hands. Marimon comes across as a bit of a cardboard cut out villain but clearly with a reason for his pain – having to see his family die of starvation following the plague.

However, it is inevitable that key characters get out alive. This detracts from the tension and danger in the episodes but a major death would certainly be an interesting novelty. The development of the Constance-D’Artagnan romance was like a romantic cliche (how I hate 360* pans…) but I hope they get their romantic happy ending.

MY RATING: **.5 / *****
