My recordy box did not record Merlin while I was out yesterday. This made me sad but is now fixed through, um, totally legit ways.

I'm just going to focus on the things I liked, which actually were many in this episode. 

I didn't do an ep review last week but one thing I liked was how Merlin was speaking up, offering information and advice and Arthur was actually listening to him. This ep it just got better with Arthur genuinely asking Merlin for advice. I loved that most of all. I can start to see the relationship of legend growing and it makes me so happy. That and I love Arthur becoming the king while still being able to act like an idiot when he tries to ask someone out for breakfast (sadly not Merlin).

Gwen being nice to the captive guy. Can we just give her a yay. She survived under Morgana when she knew she was working against Uther and Arthur so I expected no less from her but I still liked this. Gwen had a steel in her that we don't get to see that often I think. She knows when to speak up and when to play along. I kind of want her "relationship" with captive guy to come in handy later. 

I loved Mithian. And yes, I know she was so perfect because she had to be to make Arthur realize that even the most perfect princess would never be Gwen but I really liked her. I want her to come back too. In fact I have a plot bunny that on the way back to 
her land she finds Gwen and tries to help her (not knowing who she is) and somehow this is how Gwen finds out that Arthur still loves her. And maybe then they both ride into battle to defend Camelot in the finale. 

I like that they didn't resolve the Gwen story in any way. That needs time but I loved how Arthur, Gwen and Merlin played their parts.

The look Arthur threw at Merlin after the second time he burped... it made me think Arthur knew Merlin was doing it. 

"How can I love someone who has betrayed me?" MERLIN'S FACE!

Bradley, you continue to surprise me. Well done on the whole acting thing.

Arthur, stop threatening to exile Merlin people. It's only going to bite you in the ass later. 

Agravaine, I kinda hate you but you played the finding of the body really well. I don't think even Gauis suspected you... and he kinda hates you too. That said, Gauis, how could you miss the stab wound?

Oh this is longer than I expected. But lastly thoughts on the trailer bit for next week so look away now if you dont' want to see.

So Morgana was actually sitting on the throne right... this cannot be good. I have a feeling things may be quite fucked up after the finale But my great hope is that Agravaine will be killed or at least exposed as the creepy double crosser he is.
