Season 2 Episode 9 of "The Musketeers" will air not be aired by BBC on 13 March, Friday, as per the show's usual schedule. Instead, the episode wherein the treason of Queen Anne and Aramis will be exposed, titled "The Accused" will be aired next Friday, 20 March at 9.00 pm (GMT).
The historical-action drama series, which centres around the characters from Alexandre Dumas' novel "The Three Musketeers" ended the last episode "The Prodigal Father", which aired on 6 March, with Comte de Rochefort (Marc Warren) warning Queen Anne (Alexandra Dowling) that he would expose her treachery.
Rochefort is madly and obsessively in love with the Queen and is ready to forgive her for her affair with Aramis (Santiago Cabrera), as long as she admits that she loves him. The Queen however, refused to do so and stabs him in the eye with a hair pin out of fear. A furious Rochefort screams that he would expose her secret affair, which also resulted in her giving birth to Aramis' child.
In "The Accused", the Musketeers put their lives on the line, when the Queen is accused of treason, and hide her a safe distance away from the palace, as they look for evidence to prove that Rochefort is a Spanish spy. However, Rocefort has already deceived his way to the top, and now even holds the fate of the King (Ryan Gage) in his hands.
D'Artagnan (Luke Pasqualino) and Constance (Tamla Kari), who just found happiness and the confidence to be together, will also have to keep their life together on hold as the Queen's fate remains unknown. Meanwhile, Porthos (Howard Charles) who was heartbroken to find out the unforgivable truth about his biological father could use the distraction, so could Athos (Tom Burke), who hasn't had an eventful storyline in the last couple of episodes.
The synopsis for "The Accused", season 2 episode 9 of "The Musketeers" reads:
"The Musketeers must put their lives on the line when the Queen is accused of treason. They have no choice but to steal her away from the Palace to safety, while they search for evidence to prove that Rochefort is a Spanish spy. However it soon transpires that nobody is safe from Rochefort's grasp, not even the King, with devastating consequences."
