* Edmund, as the Archebishop of Canterbury, tricks a dying nobleman into signing over his lands to the crown instead of the church, by telling him that Hell is for people who like depravities like the nobleman had indulged in in life (incest, adultery, murder etc...) and he would be incredibly bored in heaven. This is one of the few times Edmund appears as scheming and intelligent as his descendants. This is also one of the few times Richard IV shows Edmund genuine respect.
* Edmund almost succeeding in making himself the Prince Regent by proving that his brother Harry is illegitimate, its only ruined because he accidently read the date on the letters and realized that HE was the bastard, not Harry. Harry had already agreed to give up his claim to the throne and go into exile, if Edmund hadnt kept reading the show would have been two episodes long.
** In that same episode, Edmund tricks his violent Scottish cousin into getting himself killed with a cannon, thereby getting back the lands he promised him.

* Edmund Blackadder, Esq. ends up alive, and fully set up to take over the prince's identity. And unlike the one of ''Back & Forth'' mentioned below, he doesn't have the help of a time machine; he's just that good. [[(EpilepticTrees Unless that actually was how his decedent influenced history.)]]

** Similarly, him punching out [[RichIdiotWithNoDayJob Prince]][[TooDumbToLive George]] in the same episode. It might have been to keep up appearances, but surely Blackadder enjoyed punching out the idiot who made his life such a hell.

*** He also gives him a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech The Reason You Suck Speech]] when he wants to back out and George tries to make him keep his word. George has to promise him [[Foreshadowing ''everything'']] just to get Blackadder to continue.
