The Musketeers: Season 3 (Blu-ray)

  • Heroes on the battlefield, the Musketeers return from the Spanish front to a Paris seething with resentment, a city on the brink of starvation. The corrupt Governor Feron has been running the capital for his own ends, aided by the brutal Red Guard. But behind Feron hides an even greater menace. Lucien Grimaud is a vicious gangster with a powerful hold over the governor. While Feron might be reasoned with, Grimaud deals only in chaos and rage. Ordered to the heart of this simmering crisis, the Musketeers must face their most treacherous test yet. It’s a task that will challenge their allegiances to the crown, throw their personal lives into turmoil and compromise their loyalty to those they love – and to each other.


    Spoils of War
    In war-torn France, three Musketeers launch a daring attack on the Spanish while Aramis battles his conscience at the nearby monastery. When brutal mercenary Lucien Grimaud brings the war to Aramis’ new home, the former friends reunite to foil a stolen arms deal and rescue a group of orphans. Four years after vowing never to fight again, is Aramis still a Musketeer at heart?

    The Hunger
    With Paris on the brink of starvation, Grimaud and Feron join forces with the Duke of Beaufort to win the King’s business by framing the city’s refugees for grain theft. D’Artagnan’s hot temper makes him a Red Guard target and lands him in the Châtelet with the victims, whose execution date looms. One man down, the Musketeers race to discover the truth. With a spy in their midst, can the Musketeers break the conspirators’ grip on Paris before the refugees hang?

    Brothers in Arms
    Under orders, the Musketeers defend Louis’ traitorous brother Gaston after he slaughters a band of veteran soldiers in a Paris tavern. The heartbroken owner, Christophe, demands justice – but the preoccupied King welcomes his formerly exiled brother home with open arms. As tensions ignite and secrets spill, Treville crosses a dangerous line and the Musketeers are forced to choose between their royal duty and fellow soldiers. Meanwhile, Feron and Grimaud spy a kindred spirit in Gaston.

    The Queen’s Diamonds
    The future of the English monarchy rests on the Musketeers’ shoulders after Louis orders them to recover his sister the Queen of England’s missing crown jewels. It’s a daunting mission, made more complicated when they unmask the thief – the irrepressible Emile Bonnaire. Fighting every instinct, the Musketeers must place their faith in their old adversary to hunt down the diamonds. The ensuing mayhem tests each Musketeer’s loyalties to the limit, and a surprise reunion results in heartbreak for Aramis.

    To Play The King
    The Musketeers battle to restore order in Paris after Grimaud and Feron stage an ambitious Châtelet breakout, setting free a lunatic with murderous designs on the Louvre. Using one prisoner’s unlikely talents to rob the royal vault, the plotters prepare to make their first move against the King. But ailing Feron is distracted, and his ruthless silencing of an unwelcome visitor could be Grimaud’s undoing.

    Death of a Hero
    It’s the day of reckoning, as Grimaud vows to kill the Musketeers in a series of savage co-ordinated attacks and puts Feron to the ultimate test in his bid for power. With Athos distracted and Aramis on an unlikely pilgrimage with the King, the Musketeers are divided when they need each other most. The furious battle for survival sparks a series of revelations that threaten to destroy Paris.

    Fool’s Gold
    In pursuit of Grimaud, the Musketeers stumble across a battle-scarred village where the women thrive without men. Quick-witted leader Juliet is quick to warn the Musketeers off. Is she simply protecting her community, or is she hiding something? When a gang of hardened war deserters attack, the Musketeers must earn the women’s trust to help them defend their independence – unearthing a secret history far darker than anything they’ve encountered before.

    Prisoners of War
    Aramis and the Queen’s attempts to broker peace with the Spanish go disastrously wrong after Grimaud kidnaps Aramis in a bid to seal an alliance with the influential Duke of Lorraine. Grimaud’s demands threaten to ruin the Queen, placing the Musketeers in an impossible situation as they battle to salvage her reputation and rescue Aramis – all while d’Artagnan’s family ties threaten to derail the mission. As the King’s health goes into spectacular decline and a troublemaker returns to lay claim to Athos, Sylvie becomes a casualty of the ruthless power struggle enveloping Paris.

    The Prize
    When death strikes the Louvre, Treville takes controversial steps to protect the Dauphin from the unholy alliance of Grimaud, Gaston and the Duke of Lorraine. His secretive tactics isolate the Queen and threaten to drive even his loyal Musketeers apart. With the disbanded Red Guard at Grimaud’s disposal, Constance and Sylvie must hide the Dauphin in a city crawling with spies while Treville turns politician to divide the opposition. Will diplomacy work in the battle to save France, or has Treville underestimated his enemies? The explosive outcome will shatter the Musketeers’ world.

    We Are The Garrison
