The Musketeers Episode 8: ‘The Challenge’ – Info, pictures & clip

The Musketeers are tasked with bringing the fearsome Labarge, a regional Intendant, under arrest for the murder of two Musketeers, to Paris. The Red Guards, resentful of the Musketeers’ handling of him, initiate a vicious fight between the two regiments.

Fed up with the disruptive rivalry between the Musketeers and the Red Guards, the king calls a contest between them to settle which one is stronger once and for all. D’Artagnan is determined to be chosen to fight so that he can prove himself worthy to be a Musketeer. But first he has to learn to control his impetuous nature and to fight with his head, not his heart.

Vinnie Jones guest stars as Labarge and Zoe Tapper is Alice Clerbeaux.
