What an Idiot: Marian's attempts to hide the fact that she is trying to warn the King are ... less than convincing. She writes a letter to King Richard, telling him of the assassination plot and then hears a knock on her bedroom door. Despite the fact that there is a) a lady's maid next to her who successfully hides and b) a fire burning on the hearth right behind her, she neither gives the letter to the maid nor throws it in the fire, nor does she seek a delay with the obvious "I'm getting dressed!" or somesuch. Instead she puts it in a conspicious box on a table that she claps shut and still has her hands on when Sir Guy bursts through the door, and that she stares at while he toys with it.
