    I’m getting ridiculously frustrated with this. If Merlin tries turning Arthur away from magic AGAIN…. seriously, this show needs to hurry up and give us the reveal.

    I am really interested in Mordred, though… he’s certainly a more interesting character than Morgana at this point, since we haven’t gotten to see her change/grow at all in the past few seasons.

  • I too get the feeling that Merlin is going to do something irriparibly stupid. I get the feeling that Mordred might never do anything against Camelot unless they (and by they I mean Merlin) give him a reason to. At this point I’d say that the best thing Merlin can do is stop listening to that damn dragon, strop trying to kill Mordred and just act in the best interest of Camelot like he’d never heard that damn prophecy. At this point the Merlin of season 1 would be a far better man for the job than the one we have now if I look at the spoilers…

  • Hmmm, could it be;
    “Arthur, you can’t let sorcery stay”
    “Merlin, I have to save Mordred”
    “He’s one man against everything you fought against”
    “You’re right”
    “I know”
    (Mordred dies)
    “Oh no,Mordred died”
    (Mordred sits up)
    “I’m alive!”
    “How? I’m sorry, I made the wrong decision Mordred”
    “Don’t worry Arthur, I would have done the same”
    (All three laugh heartily. Arthur looks oblivious, Merlin looks worried, and Mordred LOOKS evily into the camera)
    “Yes, all is forgiven…”
    PLOT TWIST!!!! Dun dun dun!

    I have got to say that all of this seems very interesting, i too feel that Merlin is pushing this the wrong way and that Magic should not be outlawed, (i thought that it is what Merlin wanted though?), plus i do think that Mordred will kill Arthur at some point but the producers will probably twist it like they always do, and to be honest with you the decisions that are made in this episode will either taunt Merlin or give him the hope of a better future for Camelot, lets hope they give us good acting in this episode, can’t wait x

    This was episode was really good and went into great moral depth and the twist at the end was done really well! However Merlin really needs to just let Arthur know all ready! |

  • I really liked it. The scene around the fire with Arthur and Merlin was touching. Colin played the part really well.

    Colin is absolutely brilliant. Surely he will collect an award for THAT scene!!
    I can still feel Merlin’s pain now. But where on earth are the writers going from here?. By denying himself and giving Arthur advice against any better judgement Merlin seems to have become – albeit unintentionally – the catalyst for Arthur’s downfall. It is tragic and heart breaking. To go with Gaius line from the last episode: I do not think my heart can take it.
