Episode Summary

EDIT
Dogtanian Meets The King
AIRED:
Dogtanian sets out for the Musketeers' headquarters, where he is given a hero's welcome. However, Treville tells him he cannot become a Musketeer immediately. As a reward he is taken to the Palace gardens, where he slips away looking for Juliette and gets in a tangle with the royal underwear. Treville, meanwhile, has an audience with the King, but Cardinal Richelieu is there too. He wants his Guards to take over from the Musketeers as the guardians of the Palace, and suggests a test: if the Musketeers cannot go one day without drawing their swords, they will lose their traditional job. As Monsieur Treville announces this to his men, Dogtanian spots his horse Sandy in the street and runs to him. The stable-hand from Meune, Planchet, has brought him, and Dogtanian goes in search of his friends so he can borrow money to pay him. He finds Athos, Porthos and Aramis being humiliated at the hands of three of the Cardinal's Guards, after rescuing a comrade from their clutches, and cannot understand why they don't fight back. The Guards push Dogtanian too far and he ends up attacking Widimer. He is taken to the Palace, where the King is highly amused that this young lad has roughed up Richelieu's best men. He tells the Cardinal he cannot possibly let such weak soldiers guard his Palace, and orders Treville to punish Dogtanian with a beating. But the Captain has barely begun when Louis issues a royal pardon and gives Dogtanian some money, which he uses to pay Planchet. He then offers the bear a job as his servant.moreless
