I loved this episode. Particularly the story about the Queen mother. That was totally unexpected and really added depth to the story, especially as she was a perfectly ordinary woman and yet had a brilliantly regal air, I thought she was portrayed very well. The fact that she took a fancy to Little John simply added humour, which is what makes this series of Robin Hood so good. I thought that Le Grande and Little John's rivalry, which then turned to a grudging friendship, was done very well, and suited both of their characters. It was nice to have a focus on some of the other chracters.
The Night Watchman being found out was done at exactly the right time, and I thought that Gisbourne's reaction was very well acted. Marian's life was saved by Gisbourne and Allan, which could lead to interesting consequences.
Next week also looks to be very good, as they finally get somewhere in their fight to save England, all the hinting towards Djaq having a relationship with one of the outlaws is eventually focused on, and the King at last makes an entrance!
