|Arthur: "Alright, I don't normally say things like this, but you did a good job out there... Did you hear what I just said?... Alright, maybe I should give you some kind of reward, what do you want ?" |
Merlin: "Some peace and quiet".
Ok, I see how in the "fighting like Merlin" scene Arthur looks for Merlin's approval and recognition, which is indeed big since he truly wants Merlin to admire him despite he can have it for granted. But, how exactly in that bit you quoted Arthur is showing his insecurities and searching for Merlin admiration? I don't see it, care slapping me enlightened?
