    This day has finally come.

    Okay, my first comment: the title is very interesting. We've seen Uther cry in the past, to break enchantment. Maybe he cries because of enchantment as well?

    If TPTB decide to get creative and not repeat stuff they might be tears in a figurative sense.

    Or both

    Anyways, I think there are many people in Camelot who would love to see Uther cry!

    I would too. An emotional Uther is something we don't see much of so it'd be good

    Is it just me that feels strange that it's finally here after 9 months of waiting. Looking back it seems to have flown in. All I can think as much as i want to see the whole series today, when it finishes it will be xmas.

    I don't think there'll be resets this time, they did it in S2 opener, I don't see a reason to repeat that.

    I'm possibly asking a completely silly question but what is the main purpose of this thread? Just to discuss the ep after it has been aired. A spoiler is only a spoiler until the episode has aired in the uk right? Any other brits on here counting the hours. I've watched about 3/4 movies today already waiting on the time passing.

    The purpose of this thread is to discuss, analize and comment on all and every aspects of the episode indeed. Once it's aired in the UK, it's not a spoiler anymore so it can be freely dissected in here. Those who don't want to be spoiled should rather avoid this thread until they've watched the episode.

    This is a thread for us to comment on the episode once it has aired in the UK. So once it's aired the spoilers for this episode aren't spoilers.


    I'm getting through the day by watching old episodes of Merlin!

    hehe I've been doing that for the last few months. Watching an ep of Merlin every couple of days. I absolutely love 2x02. Just how it show's a much better side to Arthur. I'm really looking forward to the changes in him this season. I'll be here as soon as the ep is over. Hope fellow brit's will join me and everyone else asap. Hopefully we will have lots and lots to talk about.



    Ok I feel silly counting the hours until it starts. I'm a grown woman with a full time career. I have more important things I should be doing like house work. Why do I love this show so much.
