The plot thickens...

Quick impressions of Merlin's

Indeed, that had a more epic feel to it. Budget rise, maybe? They never slaughtered this much Camelon-ians in the first two Season put together than we saw dead on the battlefield in the beginning.

I was very happy to not see Arthur and Merlin be reset like last Season but continue on with their friendship and their mean little pranks on each other. Arthur "washing" Merlin. Hee.

Also, more and more allusions to the once and future king (okay, minus the once part, for now it's just future).

Cendred looks like a cool new character.

And yes, we all saw Sir Leon barbequed at the end of last Season - and we all don't care for he is baaaaack. *pumps fist*

Slash dragon to the rescue.

One thing I was disappointed about: Morgana now being all muhahaha-evil. I like that her storyline thickens (she was hardly on last Season) and we knew from the legends where it would go but I would have liked to see her more conflicted. It is easy to believe with Uther and Merlin. her relationship with one was already tumultous and the other tried to kill her when she expected help. But what about people like Arthur and Gwen? They never did anything to her and Morgana clearly loved them once. Yet now, she looks like she would still smirk evilly if she ripped their still beating hearts from their bodies.

Oh well, can't win them all.

Nevertheless, I'm heartened by the start of the new Season. Guess with Merlin it is the opposite of SPN, odd-numbered Seasons rock.

so far so good! i think the episode was among the best so far, really like it. i wish though that morgana hadnt gone totally evil like that. i mean, merlin and uther i could understand but as far as i know, apart from being annoyed with arthur a few times, she actually liked the guy! but then again, part 2 hasnt aired yet and i am not so sure how it will continue.

i for one cant quite see totally evil morgana living in camelot with merlin knowing...i dont know... :)

excellent start though :)

wish arthur had taken camelot over temporarily and then since no one was expecting a compentent leader, would kick invading king's ass...now that's what i would like to see! :)

Exactly, she used to be a very caring person, fighting for the innocent, helping the downtrodden and she definitely cared about Arthur and Gwen as well as the people of Camelot.

Yet one year later and she is ready to offer them all up for slaughter with an evil grin? Aside from Uther, Merlin and Gaius noone in Camelot has given her reason for personal revenge.
