Merlin: Morgana, Dragons Series 5 Hints
Merlin co-creator Julian Murphy has talked about where Morgana and the dragons might be headed next in Series 5.
“I don’t see Morgana getting any less powerful, she’s growing into a stronger and more committed enemy than ever before,” Murphy revealed in an interview with SciFiNow.
“The stakes are becoming higher now that Arthur is king and the future of Albion is being created, there’s more for Merlin to fight for and more for him to protect so as he gets older, he’s tested as a character because everything in the world becomes more serious.”
And they offered an intriguing tease on the future of the dragons. It sounds like a battle between Kilgharrah and Aithusa could be on the cards:
Fans were left bemused when the finale showed the white dragon Aithusa saving an injured Morgana. Some are debating whether the creators are drawing on the legend of the red dragon (representing Camelot) kills the white dragon (symbolising the Saxons) and the writers are clearly satisfied with the reaction, “We hoped it was a nice tease…” says Murphy.
