Episode 5, in which Leila discovers:

- That if you've brought a Gatling gun to a knife fight, then you just might be a redcoat

- That Tetris is Russian, the Light Brigade charged, Florence Nightengale'd, and the Crimean War happened

- That the Hundred Years' War, while still awful, was too good to be true

And in which Tristan realizes too late:

- That there are other adjectives in the English language besides "massive" - sorry about that

- That nobody really calls it the Crimea. It's either just Crimea, or the Crimean Peninsula

- That there absolutely was a Nine Years' War, it's just that I normally think of it as the War of the Grand Alliance, so it didn't come to mind. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it
