Aithusa was a great episode of Merlin and though it was a little slow and very plain and simple it was still entertaining. I enjoyed watching Merlin learn of a new hope for Dragons in that there is an egg left locked away in a tomb. The quest to retrieve the egg has its share of adventure, humor, and predictability along with a little character and plot development. I thought what happened in the end was pretty cool and I look forward to seeing Aithusa again. I can't wait to watch the next episode!!!!!!!
