    Just finished watching. Uther - Morgana's father - YES- we are so getting better at guessing these plot lines. Fantastic episode! Next weeks ep looks really good. Giaus discussing Morgana's path to the throne at the end of the episode really goes make you think.

    What a great episode. Gauis facial expressions have me in stitches. Poor merlin he never seems to do the right thing. Loved the brief arthur and gwen scene. Next weeks episode looks great.

    AT if you don't want to know what happens in this episode until you've watched it, I wouldn't come back in this thread. What happened in the episode is no longer a spoiler. You know what we are like in these threads at dissecting the episodes.


    I did love Merlin's insults towards Arthur at the beginning of this episode.

    Dollop head, clotpole, pompous, bone idled toad... we have some adjective to add to the list. Lol How adorable is Merlin crying for Arthur because he can't save him? And he tells Taliesin that he is 'his friend' and not 'his master'
    Whoa at Merlin's visions in the cave, we know they are gonna eventually happen later in the series.
    Lol, the celebration music is back!
    Very ingenious way of communications through the mirror, I liked that a lot.
    Merlin makes Morgana fall when she goes to meet Morgause, we guessed that.
    Aww at Arthur carrying Morgana, caring for her, saying he'd sacrifice his place in the throne so she sees another sunrise.
    Aww at Gaius comforting Merlin too.
    Merlin has a desk, now? Uther would use sorcery to save Morgana, we guessed that.
    Morgana is Uther's daughter, also guessed by some. Why is Uther keeping it secret for Arthur's sake? I never though a female despite older would take preference when it comes to secession issues back then.
    Aww at the Uther and Merlin scene.
    Arthur beating the dummy belonged to this episode, Lol
    Morgause wants to play the heiress card. Morgana wants to kill Uther. We guessed the reason of their discrepancy too.
    Yay at Morgana doing magic!
    I feel for Merlin so badly. Doing the right thing was never that complicated.

    So much for my thoughts, UFO was right then.


    What an episode though!!!


    I'll wait to comment properly until my brain is capable of coherent thought.


    BM, with the start of this episode you're going to have a field day with the 'what Merlin calls Arthur' list in the other thread

    That was such a great episode. Even though the 'big reveal' wasn't all that shocking its implications for the rest of the episode and this series will be huuuuge. I actually adore Morgana. I love the fact that she's close to death and the minute she wakes up she's scheming already lol. It was nice seeing her magic again as well, even if it did look like she did it by accident lol. Colin was really great in the last half of the episode I thought and it was nice to see some Gwen/Morgana stuff again.

    -
    Is that even possible! :p

    Back to episode - I did love Arthur questioning Merlin as to how he is healed after he told him that he had an arrow in his back. Looking at Arthur's face upon Merlin's explanation I don't think he totally buys it.
