So, Merlin

Not as much Merlin/Arthur which makes me sad but nevertheless some cute bits for them. Having a habit there of hanging out in Arthur's bedroom at night, guys?

"Stop PACING" God, they're already a married couple.

Also, did Uther and Gaius used to have a thing? It's quite obvious Gaius abhorred of the purge and what was done - and he did feel compassion for the young boy Edwin was and what happened to him - yet he went along with Uther. He was also quite protective here.

Edwin - cool character because in a way I could see his point. But he had crossed over the line into evil long ago.

Morgana and Arthur's reaction to the sacking of Gaius. Bet they remember how he treated them as wee things and gave them little treats with it. Interesting also that Morgana referenced something like that yet once she said she helped her father with his armour. When did she become Uther's ward? Maybe her dad was one of Uther's knights and she grew up in the palace and with Arthur.

Trailer for next episode? Mmmm. Arthur bewitched. Merlin to the rescue. Well, hopefully. It would be gravvy if the bewitch-kiss can only be broken by true love's kiss. *cough cough*


Also, I read about the Expo panel - deep jealousy here - and how Bradley James nodded to The question, yes? Go Arthur.

As for anybody not watching this show? Repent. :-p

I will...not...read....Too late. I'm cool with spoilers when it comes to Merlin though. I'm waiting to find it on the internet. Tomorrow I guess. I started to watch because of you anyway! With all your commentaries about how slashy the show was...

Well, I guess I'll have more interesting things to say tomorrow.

Awww, I'm a pimp. But then I actually was drawn into the fold the exact same way. Early on I saw some pictures and it looked like a kiddie show so I wasn't interested but then the slash commentaries cropped up and boy, did they not lie. Episode 4 is still my happy dream.

Looking forward to your response. Meanwhile, I'm working on two more Merlin ficlets. Stop me. *g*

As much as I like Gaius, I did miss the boys in this episode. But then, Merlin pulled a Matrix with the whole "let's avoid the bullet axe in slow motion" move and it sent me to my happy place! *g*

It's very disturbing how Uther is so demonstrative when it comes to Morgana when he's always putting his son down. I guess it has to do with the fact that he wants Arthur to be tough to be a good king and yaddi yadda, but at some point I did think: "He should just marry her". Which was ten kinds of disturbing.

Trailer for next episode? Mmmm. Arthur bewitched. Merlin to the rescue. Well, hopefully. It would be gravvy if the bewitch-kiss can only be broken by true love's kiss. *cough cough*

OMG, how amazing would that be? I hope there's gonna be tension between those two. I love it when they're tensed. *g*

Awesome! I can't wait to read those! *cheers*

That's true, he is so tough on Arthur, and while he tends to fight with Morgana a lot too, he showed serious concern for her in this one. And what does Arthur get when he returns from a possibly deadly quest? Thrown into jail. Not even a "thank god, you're alright" before that. *twaps Uther*

Hehe, I bet Merlin will be all jealous. This one scene in the trailer when the sorcerer or whatever he is throws Merlin into the wall with magic, Arthur stands right there, unmoving, so my guess is he is already bewitched and Merlin came to talk sense into him. Awww.

Also, if Arthur is close to drowning and Merlin pulls him out, well, they did cite Smallville for inspiration and no matter how much SV sucked later, they did have Clark kiss Lex in the first ep when he gave him CPR. God, I hope they go there. *must not set myself up for possible disappointment*
