You know I wasn't feeling particularly excited about the new ep of Merlin this week. The last one was okay but I didn't see the necessity for it to be a two-parter. But after seeing this? My spirits, they are raised. *g*

Spoilers for the new ep so click at your own risk.

Ooooh that looks good. Thanks.

I have to admit I've been pretty meh on this season so far. Not sure why since I'm not really even slashing Arthur/Merlin. But I do think the show needs to keep the focus on the bromance more than it has so far this year.

I do slash them but of course I knew they were going Gwen/Arthur this Season, have been prepared for it. What I didn't like was how they pulled back the Merlin/Arthur friendship because of it. Why jettison an important relationship like that to get out the romance? It's not like they can't co-exist.

Thanks! Now i'm looking forward to the second part. Finally 2 main character at play and not someone else.

Yup, yup, I have been waiting for interaction like this between them since the Season started.

*smiles stupidly* Thanks for that. Screw this Sam/Dean fic I've just started: I need Arthur/Merlin tonight.

PS: I didn't see the necessity for it to be a two-parter.

This? Is so right. I liked the episode (good old classic MOTW episode. Oh, wait, wrong show), but I really didn't get why they needed it to be so long.

Yes, it was like "okay, why could they not resolve this here? I didn't care that much about the new troll wife". But if they milk some good, old Merlin/Arthur out of it, I retract the previous statement.

Ben Vanstone? Yay. I should have known. \o/ And thank God, because I really needed a scene like this. So far we haven't had Merlin/Arthur of that kind in the Season. Thank you, Vanstone, I bow at your feet.

Also, two of my favourite writers on different shows are now named Ben. I think I have to check for the name more. :D
