The Musketeers episode 8 The Challenge (1)
The Musketeers episode 8 “The Challenge” premieres Sunday, August 10th at 9PM ET/PT on BBC America.

Episode Synopsis: The Musketeers episode 8 “The Challenge”- 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.

Show Summary: BBC AMERICA’s new co-production drama series, The Musketeers, is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris, where law and order is more of an idea than a reality. In addition to being King Louis XIII’s personal bodyguards, Athos, Aramis and Porthos stand resolutely for social justice, honor, valor, love – and for the thrill of it. The 10-part season (10 x 75mins), created by Adrian Hodges (My Week With Marilyn, Primeval), premieres on BBC AMERICA Sunday, June 22, 9:00pm ET and a second season will air in 2015.
