That episode.

Still disappointed we never saw them go to Efrafa though...

And why did Hazel so casually dismiss them going there?  They could have told Woundwort where Watership Down is.

I thought that was strange as well.  Maybe he was counting on Woundwort not even letting them speak?

"Should we tell them?" "Nah, let'em die."

And why did Hazel so casually dismiss them going there?  They could have told Woundwort where Watership Down is.
That's another good point.

Maybe he was counting on Woundwort not even letting them speak?
I mean, they were tellers of tall tales anyhow.  And look what happened to Vervain when he told tales.

Eh, it's not too bad.  Vervain probably impersonated someone else while he was "imprisoned".  And therefore continued to enjoy all owsla privileges!

He is impersonating Campion.  "Where's Campion?" "I am Campion."

That takes "hating yourself" to a whole new level.

I want to respond but my brain is having a hard time wrapping itself around this one.

It's a tangled web we've weaved with Vervain's acting skills.

It's funny because in the movie I think all of the Efrafans looks the same instead in the miniseries where the main charaters got unique looks. And yeah I think too Chervil was the one who guarding the deep burrows and Bigwig beat him.



I don't really mind they swaped a few characters like Sainfoin got Vervain's personalities. I liked it. Making Vervain really badass and Orchis got real motivation,..

I suppose miniseries Chervil could be that random rabbit guarding the singing does.  If so, I wouldn't be surprised if Bigwig had actually killed him.  He...doesn't look very strong, after Bigwig is done with him...

I agree with Inlé-roo about Orchis though.  He's probably the best Efrafan officer in the miniseries.  Sainfoin is also pretty interesting, although I don't remember him doing much besides deciding to train Bigwig.
