After last weeks some-what anticlimactic death of King Uther i was hoping for a strong comeback episode. Don't get me wrong i am an avid Merlin fan and i don't think i could really be disapointed with any episode--(it is after all about magic and dragons...) but when i started to watch this episode i was a little underwhelmed.
Then i saw the baby dragon.
All of a sudden i was jumping for joy at my t.v. screen. I know what you're thinking...but not only was it so darn cute, i think it paves the way for some blooming good tv. Therefore i have given this episode a very respectable 8.
