Recap / Voyagers S 1 E 10 An Arrow Pointing East

Go To

Bogg and Jeffrey land in the middle of a legend when the omni drops them near an injured Robin Hood, who needs help and encouragement to return to the life his legend described. After being forced to time jump away from the Sheriff's men, they find themselves helping a second legend, Charles Lindbergh, as he attempts to fly the Atlantic.

This episode includes examples of the following tropes:

  • Angry Guard Dog: Bogg encounters a loudly barking German Shepherd while trying to get the gas for Lindbergh's flight.

  • Defeat Means Friendship: After knocking Bogg off the bridge during a fight with quarterstaffs, Little John offers him a hand up out of the water. This could be intended as a Genius Bonus, given that according to legend this was also what happened during his first meeting with Robin Hood.
  • Dying Alone: Robin Hood attempts to invoke this after being wounded during a fight with Prince John's men. He decided to crawl off by himself to die so his men wouldn't see their leader weakened.
  • Identity Impersonator: Bogg pretends to be Robin Hood so that he can rescue Maid Marian and bring the Merry Men back together.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Despite limited experience with a bow, Bogg manages to shoot an arrow in half.
  • Trap Is the Only Option: Despite earlier saying that three men didn't have a chance against the Sheriff and his forces, Robin decides to go through with an attack to keep Maid Marian from being married to the Sheriff.

  • Two out of Three Ain't Bad: When Bogg leaves to get the gasoline so Lindbergh can fly the Atlantic, he's warned there's a guard dog on the premises. When Jeff tries to tell him to be careful, Bogg declares that he has a way with women, children, and animals. Jeff concedes to two out of the three.
  • Would Rather Suffer: When the Sheriff asks Maid Marian how she's enjoying their excursion through the woods, she compares it to eating live lizards.

How well does it match the trope?
