Assigned to escort privateer Emile Bonnaire from Le Havre to Paris the musketeers have to thwart an escape attempt by his wife Maria and an ambush by his aggrieved ex-business partner Meunier and his men, during which Porthos is wounded, necessitating a sojourn at a deserted château. Athos explains it belongs to his family and was where he married Milady. Bonnaire is revealed to be a slave owner and, on arrival in Paris, bribes Richelieu into forming a partnership operating tobacco plantations in the New World, using slaves as a work force. However there is another faction out to capture Bonnaire and the musketeers are braking no rules in handing him over to them. Written by

The National flag of France is prominently displayed as they prepare for a state dinner. The flag used is the current Tricolour flag of France. This flag was not adopted until the French Revolution of 1794. The series is set in the early to mid 17th century (1600's). The flag used should have been one of the Royal Fleur de lis ensigns in use at the time. See more
