    I quite liked the episode, especially Queen Mab, who was very interesting character, what with riddles and rhymes.

    Sorry for Elyan, though the character wasn't that interesting to me, nor fleshed out properly.

    I still wonder if Guinevere's turning to Morgana is purely psychological (the mentioned Stockholm syndrome), or some black magic is involved. I believe magic is involved. Merlin might need to do what Gandalf did to Theoden in LotR, namely to extract the evil influence from her. It will not be easy.

    No Dreams in this episode, but I'll need to rewatch for the Smirks of Doom. Morgana is psychotic lately...
