    Out of respect for Spoiler free people and in an effort to support their decision and make their navigation around the forum safe, this is the one and only thread where spoilers are allowed to be posted and commented on.

    Just in case, once an episode has aired in the UK it is no longer considered a spoiler. It is generally a good idea to avoid the forums until it airs in your country if you are spoiler free.

    I have reserved the next two posts to keep track of all the spoilers that are posted. I will arrange them by episode so it's easier for everyone to find all the information available without having to skim through all the posts. Bring them on!

    -Santiago Cabrera is gonna appear in one episode of season 3. Source

    -Gaius may become less present in Series 3, depending on the producers' decisions so Richard Wilson gets time out to do other things. Source

    -The Great Dragon is gonna stay out of Camelot for series 3.

    -Filming Extra report on filming location [Forest of Dean], roles portrayed [bandit, bloodguard] and plot [there's a sword fight]. Source

    -"You're going to see huge changes in the relationship between Arthur and Merlin. Arthur's going down the path of being more king-like, but he's going to be a more understanding king that Uther would be. And Merlin wouldn't want to reveal that he has magic if he thought [Arthur] was going to have the same attitude as his father. I think it'd be the wrong time, but as the series progresses, you see times when Merlin is kind of assessing the situation. He's becoming more like the "adviser" of the legends that we know." Source

    -They are considering to introduce a Dragon egg at some point! Source: Julian Murphy in the Radio 4 show Here Be Dragons.

    -Uther is slowly losing his grip and that is explored a bit more in the third series. Source

    -"In the way the writers and producers moved everything on quite briskly from series 1 to series 2 – none of us expected Arthur and Gwen in the second episode – they are moving us all on in series 3. You'll see a lot of our relationships moving on quite far in series 3."
    -"Some things that were going to happen with Morgana have been pushed on into series 3."
    Source: Angel Coulby in SFX magazine July 2010.

    -There's a storyline regarding a member of Gwen's family Source

    -Arthur and Gwen's relationship will be tested.
    -Arthur's relationship with his father is really put into test as he learns the truth about his mother, which is disturbing information for him.
    Source

    -A year has passed, a lot of stuff has happened and Camelot is in the middle of a war.
    -Arthur and Merlin get involved in a bar brawl.
    Source

    -Uther is heavily involved in the first three episodes of series 3.
    -Then there are two episodes in which Arthur and Merlin go out on a road trip.
    Source

    -The first two episodes are like a movie. Two parter? Source

    -Series 3 is being written to appeal to both adults and kids, adjusting plotlines to a fanbase that is growing older.
    -Both Merlin and Arthur have matured. Merlin is more the wise adviser from legend.
    -Merlin, being a dragonlord now and more mature has acquired new magical skills, something that is apparently different to all we've seen so far. It is not known if this new magic use will be revealed to anyone.
    -At this point in their filming (block 2), Merlin has not yet been exposed.
    -We'll learn more about Gwen's past, everything she does reconciles her with what she will become: a noble person and very forgiving when a member of her family appears in Camelot.
    -Morgana's relationship with Merlin will continue to deteriorate to the point that there's no coming back from where things were left in series 2.
    Source: MCM Merlin Panel May 29th 2010 (link will be available soon).

    -S3 starts a year later with Uther going mad over the loss of Morgana. The series opens with Arthur, Merlin and Uther on the hunt for her.
    -Arthur and Merlin will ride out to search for Morgana.
    -Morgana is found and brought back to Camelot. She feels alienated since she can't trust Merlin and is very aware of her magical condition.
    -Morgana's relationship with Morgause has changed.
    -Lancelot, the Lady of the Lake and Excalibur return.
    -More Knights of the Round Table and the Crystal Cave are introduced.
    -Morgana will be more isolated in Camelot now that she cannot trust Merlin.
    -Confirmed Guest Stars: Georgia King, Miriam Margolyes and Mark Williams (who plays a goblin in episode 3).
    -According to Johnny Capps the reveal about Merlin's secret might not happen as the odd couple/dysfunctional relationship between Merlin and Arthur is something intrinsic to the show.
    -Merlin has acquired new powers and the release of the dragon has had a big impact on him. He is developing into a wise advisor in an active way to Arthur, who will actually start listening to him.
    -There are glimpses of Arthur being the future king and what his attitude to magic might be.
    -Unexpected twists will happen at the end of series 3 and the beginning of series 4, and clear storylines have been stablished for series 4 & 5 (although there's no confirmation yet those will be filmed).
    -It is not clear at what point Arthur will become king and if Uther will be killed or just put aside for it to happen.
    -Arthur and Gwen's feelings for each other develop, but not in an openly romantic way.
    Source and Source

    -The dragon is going to be back in series 3 Source

    -A bit more kind of joust between Gwen and Arthur is to be expected as the challenges they have to face keep testing their feelings for each other.
    -Gwen is still working in the castle despite Morgana is not around.
    Source

    -Alice Troughton has been chosen to direct 3 episodes Source

    -The crystal cave is gonna be part of series 3 plotlines Source

    Synopsis for Episodes 3x01 and 3x02: A year has passed since Morgana disappeared, and Uther's desperate attempts to find his ward have almost destroyed his army. Following an ambush in an eerie forest, a bruised and bloody Morgana emerges, claiming to have been held prisoner by bandits all this time. When Uther begins to have terrifying visions, Gaius and Merlin realise that Morgana is a traitor and has the king gripped by a dark enchantment. Merlin releases Uther but there is worse to come: Cenred has joined forces with Morgause and a huge army is swarming towards Camelot. As Uther struggles to recover, Arthur must take charge. In the midst of the battle, Morgana quietly slips down to the vaults and unleashes a gruesome army of skeletons; she wants vengeance for the deaths Uther has caused in his quest to destroy all magical beings. Merlin confronts her, and as they fight he almost reveals his own gift. While her back is turned he uses magic to collapse the ceiling, knocking Morgana unconscious. As her spell breaks, the skeleton army crumbles and Camelot fights on to victory. To Merlin's horror, Uther mistakenly hails Morgana as Camelot's saviour and the king is more determined than ever to keep the forces of magic from his gates. Source

    -There's a scene with Arthur and Merlin riding by a river bank. This scene and the one in the blooper reel about 'a pint of mead' belong to 3x04.

    -There's a fighting scene going on in the woods. Arthur can be seen holding a crossbow. Some other men carrying crossbows too ride out of the woods. It belongs to episode 3x07.


    Source

    Warwick Davis and Santiago Cabrera confirmed as series 3 block 3 guest stars Source

    -Series 3 is very much about the core relationship between Merlin, Arthur, Morgana and Guinevere. Our four younger character come right to the forefront of the series and there's a lot about their friendships and their allegiances.
    -We are starting off with a big two parter and picking up with the Morgana stories that we left series 2 with. Within the first five minutes you catch up as to where our characters have been.
    -We'll be introduced to more of the men who'll later come to take a seat at Arthur's round table. Sir Gawain will definitely be among them.
    -At the end of series 2 we introduced the Crystal of Neahtid (a gem that gives its wielder the power to see the future) which we learned was a fragment of the Crystal Cave, and later on in series 3 Merlin discovers the Crystal Cave. We play around with the mythology of that and the dilemma of what you do if you can see into the future - do you try and prevent it happening?
    -The Great Dragon reappears but everything's changed. We set up that Merlin is a Dragon Lord at the end of last series so his relationship with the dragon is very, very different. He calls on him in very different ways now because it's no longer chained up in the cave so Merlin can't quickly rush down and ask the dragon a question. Their relationship is much more complex and interesting now.
    -What's fun about the Arthur/Guinevere relationship is that while Uther remains king and Gwen is of lowly class there is a huge barrier between them. Very early on in the series we see scenes of Gwen giving Arthur great emotional support through difficult decisions he has to make, and you glimpse what they'll ultimately be like as king and queen.
    Source: SFX magazine August 2010

    -There is a lot more banter between Merlin and Arthur and more magic.
    -Gwen realizes that Morgana is not the same type of person and that there is no real relationship to be formed there.
    Source

    -Uther will be back in season 4.
    -Once Arthur becomes king that's pretty much the end of the show.
    Source

    -Colin Morgan and Eoin Macken (who plays Sir Gawain Source) filmed a big action scene at Caerphilly castle in June 30th, the episode was directed by Alice Troughton. Both Merlin and the character played by Eoin seem to be chased by some men armed with swords. Eoin's character pushes Merlin (actually Colin's stunt) from a wall to a stack of hay. Source

    -Asa Butterfield won't appear in season 3 Source

    -Calling on the power of the dragonlord helps Merlin stay connected with his father.

    -Merlin and Gwen's friendship won't return, it fizzled out. They're toying around with Gwen's character at the moment.
    Source

    -When secrets are exposed and old friends choose new sides it is clear that the kingdom will never be the same again. Morgana is finally found after months of absence and none in Camelot rejoice more than the king himself. But Merlin remains suspicious of his old friend and with good reason, for, despite what she may have others believe, Morgana wants one only thing: to take over Camelot and she is prepared to do whatever it takes to achieve it. Life changing decisions must be made as the boundaries of love, duty and friendship are pushed to their outmost limit, and the mettle of each character is tested in unimaginable ways. But in an uncertain future, only the strongest will survive. Source

    -There will be war, mysterious magical mountains, and menacing pixies.Source

    -There may be a romance ahead for Merlin.
    -Uther's love for Arthur and Morgana will be tested as his blind hatred of magic will continue to push those that he loves farther away. Uther's past will also come back to haunt him in a big way.
    Source

    -It doesn't sound like the reveal is gonna happen anytime soon.
    -Gawain is not a knight when he first comes in the show but that he'll eventually become one.
    -Uther is finding out not everything he did was the brightest move.
    Source

    -Season 3 will be darker and older.
    -There'll be struggle for Camelot and for succession.

    -Gwen teaches Arthur how to be a greater ruler to the people and how that becomes more and more true as the series progresses.
    -Season 3 will be more serialized than episodic.
    -Staging scenes for the dragon to fit in gets really hard since they made him really big.
    Source

    Source

    -Uther has secrets that will gradually surface.
    Source

    -Merlin will be less naive and trusting, more adult.
    -Merlin will think in a different way and Arthur will listen in a different way.

    -Morgana has been in a dark place where she's learnt interesting things.
    -Uther is more paranoid and painful.
    -Arthur's shaping up but Uther doesn't know that his son has a mind of his own and doesn't like how things are being done. They have a good relationship in series 3.

    -Morgause and Cenred team up against Camelot.

    - Uther is so desperate to find Morgana he tells Gaius he would allow magic to be practiced if it would suddenly bring her back to him.
    -Morgana will try to turn Uther against Arthur and also Arthur against Merlin and Gwen. She pretends to be nice to Uther and Arthur but she despises both and knows the truth about Ygraine and Arthur's birth.
    -Morgana was going to mess up with Gaus's head but she ends up killing him and starts going after his loved ones.
    -Morgana's relationship with Gwen is not friendly anymore, just master-servant.
    -There some nice Arthur and Gwen scenes in the first episode. Sir Leon knows of Arthur's feelings and during Cenred's attack he promises Arthur he won't let Gwen be hurt.
    -Uther only gets involved in the battle during the second episode, when Merlin breaks Morgana's enchantment over him. There's some nice father and son fighting back to back moments.
    -Merlin tells Gaius he's worried about his mother's safety should Ealdor get attacked.
    -There is suggestive dialogue between Morgause and Cenred.
    -Morgana seduces a knight before killing him.

    -Georgia King plays Elaine.
    -The episode with Georgia King, Simon Williams and Miriam Margolyes is a two parter.
    -Morgana will slap Gwen across the face after she witnesses something she shouldn't see.

    Details about the second Merlin tie-in novel, covering episodes 3x8 and 3x10:
    -Episode 8 features a visit to the crystal cave and the first appearance of one of Arthur's future knights of the round table. The crystal cave shows possible future events. Amongst things, we get glimpses of what would happen if Cenred wins his war against Camelot, and a main character's death. Arthur's future knight appears in one of the glimpses, along with Freya and Morgause. Some of the glimpses might be scenes from the last three episodes but one glimpse is certainly episode 10. This is a very heartbreaking and emotional episode for Merlin.
    -Episode 10 has the one glimpse from the crystal cave becoming real and Gwen in the stocks but not in a comic relief way and there is no food throwing. At the start of the episode, Morgana sees Gwen encourage Sara, a servant with bruises, to not take the abuse of her master, Sir Edward. Sara wishes she wasn't a servant and Gwen says she wishes the same. Morgana confronts Gwen about what she said and tells her she'll never be anything more than the maid who scrubs her floors. In the morning, Sara is missing and Morgana orders the guards to put Gwen in the stocks as punishment for aiding in her escape even though Gwen didn't. Morgana goes to Uther and ends up accusing Gwen of far worse which is obviously setting up Gwen for taking the fall for something Morgana will do. Arthur confronts Morgana about what she's accused Gwen of. Morgana is surprised Arthur cares so much for Gwen since he's never cared much for any of the servants. She asks Arthur what changed him and Arthur tells her it was.....you will have to wait and see! The Dragon tells Merlin that Gwen must be protected "no matter what" to ensure the future of Camelot. This sounds like the whole episode but it's actually just details from the first 15 pages. The end of Series 3 may actually put anything before it to shame.

    Basic information and plotlines gathered from the Reports, Pictures, Videos:



    April 8th

    -Morgana can be seen walking along the courtyard in a light blue dress and a new purple cloak. She is wearing some gloves that she'll wear later in scenes that involve horseriding.

    -Uther, looking enchanted or drugged, staggers into the courtyard and over to the well. As he looks in, he jerks back as if terrified. Is there a hand reaching out from inside the well? Uther can be seen later on curled up lying on the ground

    -Arthur and Sir Leon walk along the corridor with a serious look exchanging some words with Merlin following them right behind

    -Merlin rushes towards Gwen and asks her if she's seen Arthur. She, looking sad or upset, replies that he is in the Council Chamber

    -Morgana can be seen wearing Ygraine's dress, all torn up. Katie said that it wasn't Morgana's dress



    April 9th

    -Gaius is in the market, and old woman is pleading, holding his hands, begging him for something but he angrily fobbs her off shouting "Off, off!" and then walks away. Arthur enters the village with some knights, ordering them to search some houses, and he witnesses the exchange

    -Gaius, Sir Leon and Merlin check out a dead knight in the castle grounds. Sir Leon has a big knife in his hand that apparently was in the knight.

    -Arthur and Merlin have a exchange in the battlements

    -Merlin and Morgana in her white and gold dress, have a scene in the market


    April 12th

    -Nightshoot: Camelot seems to be under attack, with evident signs of battle and struggle covering the courtyard: servants putting fires out, others are helping injured people.

    -Merlin runs across the courtyard.

    Uther, dressed in his chainmail and armour, walks down the steps and, sword in hand, runs across the courtyard to join the battle.

    -Arthur is in the battlements with his knights defending Camelot.



    April 13th

    -The courtyard, knights and peasants show the same signs of struggle as the day before. There is fire and a lot of smoke.

    -Camelot is under attack, apparently having been infiltrated by skeletons.

    -Arthur walks into the courtyard helping an injured Camelot knight, he sends him to Gaius and calls on Merlin, who comes down the main steps, looks around distressed and joins Arthur. They have this exchange:


    Arthur: (angry) Merlin! Where the hell have you been?
    Merlin: Nowhere!
    Arthur: Merlin, you're starting to make a habit out of this. What's the excuse this time?
    Merlin: (quiet)
    Arthur: Come on, Merlin, you can do better than that. Merlin: (points at approaching skeleton)
    (Arthur turns around and fights the skeleton)


    -Sir Leon and Uther have a scene on the drawbridge.



    April 14th

    -Arthur is in the battlements with his knights.

    -Arthur has a scene in the market where he is up a barricade leading Camelot people and his knights. It involves quite a lot of encouraging yelling.

    -Andreas Petrides can be seen teaching swordfighting routines to Sarracen looking warriors and also to Camelot knights.

    -Peasants can be seen carrying their belongings either leaving Camelot or arriving and seeking protection.

    -Morgana has a scene on the battlements in a red silk dress and a red velvet cloak. She also has a scene on the drawbridge.

    -Andreas does a stunt and falls off the battlements.

    -Merlin has a scene in the drawbridge.



    April 15th

    -Uther can be seen practicing sword fighting routines with Andreas

    -There's filming inside in the crypt and in the Griffin hall. Every once in a while the Camelot knights are called in to join. There's a lot of 'For the love of Camelot!'

    -Morgana is wearing a costume that has been described as 'designer chainmail'.



    April 16th

    -Merlin, Arthur and some Camelot knights enter Camelot on horseback.

    -A Camelot Knight is carrying Morgana in his arms, wrapped in his cloak. She is wearing a dark purple dress that looks burnt. She is barefoot. Her feet, legs and face have dark stains and her hair messy, wearing traces of leaves on it.

    -After seeing Morgana being taken away, Arthur has an exchange with Merlin in the courtyard. He snaps his fingers in Merlin's face, very frustrated and trying to get Merlin's attention, but Merlin seems lost in his own thoughts. Arthur says something like "Ok, now Morgana is back. Don't mention.....anymore."

    -Arthur and Merlin (in a different set of clothing) walk along the gallery in the courtyard talking.

    -Sir Leon and some Camelot knights arrive on horseback and look concerned towards Camelot.

    ¬-Merlin stunt is around.



    April 19th

    -Morgana is wearing her white and silver dress.



    April 20th

    -Arthur is training his knights in the castle grounds and arrogantly praising his own sword fighting skills. He makes a comment about his knights being able to defeat a blind man, so he challenges them by fighting blindfolded.

    -Gaius and Merlin are watching the fighting practice for some reason. Merlin has his eyes glued on Arthur the entire time during the fighting, occasionally taking a break to talk to Gaius. Merlin seems to think the blindfold thing is ridiculous, because he laughs at Arthur when he approaches him and Arthur says something like "what, you still think you could take me apart?" in a teasing and light-hearted way.



    Change Sheets for episode 3x02:

    -Battlements: Arthur rescues one of his knights (France)

    -Courtyard: 3 skeletons attack Merlin and Arthur (France)

    Basic information and plotlines gathered from the Reports, Pictures, Videos:



    June 7th


    -There's a big celebration in the great hall.

    -Geoffrey of Monmouth is present, so is the character played by Georgia King

    -Gwen has a new dress and so does Morgana.



    June 8th


    -Arthur is challenged into a training fight for money by a man, Sir Oswald (played by John Hopkins), who ends up losing and will turn out to be an enemy. Merlin doesn't seem to trust him from the very beginning.

    -Morgana and Morgause have a scene at the corridors inside the castle.

    -A banquet scene was filmed after the castle closed for visitors

    -A scene was also being filmed in the lower town and another one in the forest

    -Georgia King (in a different dress han yesterday) was around but just practising some horseriding. Her horse apparently has to follow Bradley's

    -Also, some footage was filmed for a French writing challenge for kids. (Colin, did you know that a dolphin sleeps with one eye open?").



    June 9th


    -Uther has a scene in the Great Hall

    -Uther leads a walk into the hall where a banquet is going on. After him, Arthur (who is wearing a new crown) escorts Morgana followed by Georgia King's character, Simon Williams (who seems to be a king and father of G. King's character) and then Miriam Margolyes' character. Both Arthur and Uther are wearing their cloaks and crowns. For some reason, Gwen leaves the hall before the rest do.

    -A scene in which Georgia's character followed Arthur on horseback through the village was filmed when the castle closed to visitors.

    -A second unit was fiming in the forest towards the end of the day involving Arthur and Georgia's character on horseback.

    -Anthony comes down the stairs with the king played by Simon Williams. Arthur shakes the king's hand.

    -Georgia's character comes down the stairs and walks towards Arthur who kisses her hand. Merlin is standing at Arthur's side.

    -Arthur greets the king and then climbs up the stairs into the castle with Merlin. Both look over their shoulder as the kings (Uther and the new one) depart.

    -Georgia's character runs away from the castle on her horse. Arthur jumps on his horse and runs after her, leaving an astonished Merlin behind. Eventually, they return together and chat as their horses are taken away and they walk towards the stairs. Georgia's character stumbles and Arthur reaches out to help her. Merlin starts walking towards them.

    -Last day of filming for Georgia King Source



    June 10th


    -Richard was filming with Colin in the lower town. Gaius picks up something from one of the vendors and puts it in his bag. Then he tells Merlin off.

    -There's some kind of tournament going on involving horsemen fighting with swords filmed at the football field by the castle grounds and then sword fighting at the same arena. The fights seem to be to the death.



    June 11th


    -Last day of filming in France for Richard.

    -Katie, Angel and Emilia filmed a scene in the lower town. Emilia had aged aging make up that made her look like an 80-year-old woman. An apple was part of the plot.

    -Morgana is wearing the same new purple dress from April 8th but without the hood. She is also in the same new red dress from April 14th.

    -Gwen is both in her purple and pink dress.

    -Colin and Richard were filming on the tournament ground, watching the tourney with the crowd. The horses were galloping and charging down the arena and they were filming the crowd's reactions to the race.

    -There was a scene in the courtyard where Arthur and Merlin come down the steps to greet Sir Oswald (the same man he was fighting on June 8th and apparently and old friend of Arthur's) and his sidekick. Arthur welcomes Sir Oswald with a hand clasp and a manly hug as a greeting. "Sir Oswald, I didn't think you'd be brave enough to show up". The he greets Sir Oswald's sidekick and introduces Merlin to them, saying he is his servant and that he does all the hard work so they should ask him anything they need. Sir Oswald says something and throws his gloves to Merlin. Arthur turns around and leaves. Sir Oswald seems to have a plan up his sleeve.

    -Arthur and Merlin are watching something from the castle battlements (supposedly watching someone leave Camelot, probably Sir Oswald, the baddie of the episode). Arthur noogies Merlin.



    June 14th


    -A scene was filmed in the courtyard where Morgana and Uther stand on the castle steps watching Arthur leave Camelot on horseback. He is wearing a bracelet over his glove. He exchanges some words with Merlin who is tending to his horse but leaves on his own. He is carrying a blanket and stuff that hints at the trip being for longer than the day. There were a bunch of court people standing behind Uther and Morgana, also watching Arthur's departure. The mood was very sombre and Morgana looks crossed while sweet talking Uther.

    -Bradley was seen wearing light coloured sleep pants, flips flops and a dressing gown so he most likely filmed a topless pjs scene.

    -Gwen was around but left early.



    June 15th


    -Arthur seems to be in a very bad mood, pushing Merlin along the castle grounds and using him a target practice. Arthur charges against him with a mace as he yells: "You're supposed to be a battle-hardened warrior, not a daffodil" to which Merlin replies: "Sorry Sire, I'm tired." Arthur then charges against Merlin using a sledgehammer. All the while, Merlin is covering behind a shield. Next practice consists of Merlin running around as he carries the target in his back and Merlin throwing a lance at it. Merlin falls to the ground and Arthur steps on the target keeping him pinned to the ground. Then he helps Merlin up and punches him in the arm twice.

    -Arthur can also be seen charging against a practice dummy fiercely with his sword under the rain as Merlin watches him sheltered under an arch. Both are soaking wet.

    -Katie is being taught how to handle a beautiful white horse. The horse is able to 'walk' graciously, bow, rear up and jump in the air.



    June 16th


    -Close ups of Arthur's part in the tournament were filmed. He is doing some jousting although he is not in full armour. Some more sword fights were filmed as well.

    -Arthur and Merlin, who carries a couple of pheasants, arrive on horseback to a town. They dismount, look up and around them and and go in the local bar. [The bar brawl we saw a sneaky peek of takes place here]. Then they come out and ride away.

    -After the bar brawl, Arthur carries an unconscious man (Gawain, who was involved in the fight) with a wounded leg face down on his horse. Now Merlin is carrying a big leather bag together with the pheasants.

    -A man is being pelted with fruit in the stocks. Arthur and Merlin watch from their horses. Arthur says something to the people who are throwing the fruit but when Arthur and Merlin leave, they carry on pelting the man.

    -Gwen and Morgana can be seen dressed in pants and shirts.



    June 17th


    -Short scenes involving Bradley and Colin and Bradley and Angel were filmed. In his scene with Gwen, Arthur was yelling for some reason.

    -Arthur, Merlin, Morgana and Gwen leave Camelot on horseback. The women are dressed with comfortable travelling clothes (the same ones they were spotted on the day before): trousers, shirts and boots. They all carry blankets so it looks like a long trip. Merlin is apparently surprised that Morgana joins them.

    -A lot of Camelot knights some of which carry lances march and form in the courtyard. Arthur joins them and leads them. Julian Murphy is directing this episode.

    -A Cenred man as well as man from another foreign kindgdom can be seen in the courtyard.

    -Sir Leon was around.

    -A lot of extras and stunt doubles were used for the ridings scenes.



    June 18th


    -Sir Leon and Morgana were around for filming. Morgana was in her red dress and red cloak, doing a night scene in which she can be seen walking along the gallery in the courtyard.

    -A pyre is built up at the castle main square. Uther and Morgana stand watching on a balcony. Arthur escorts an old version of Merlin (he drank a potion and aged up) into the square. Uther condemns him to be burnt at the stake for using magic and enchantments. Merlin apparently manages to escape.
    -Merlin is the only one to be inconsistently aged up.
    -Some gallows are also built up.
    -These scenes apparently belong to 3x09.
    -Sir Leon and some knights filmed a scene in the forest surrounding the castle where they fight some sarracen looking men.

    -There was a huge fight inside the castle involving Arthur and his knights.



    September 14th


    -Gwen, in her pants and furry top, arrives to Camelot on horseback together with Sir Leon, Sir Lancelot, Sir Elyan (Gwen's brother) and Sir Percival. Arthur, who is not on his knight clothes, helps her dismount and they kiss in the castle courtyard. The knights look happy, all but Lancelot.
    -Morgana, wearing a crown, stands on a balcony together with Morgause, both looking over the castle main square. They seem to have taken over Camelot.
    -Sir Leon and other Camelot knights stand on the castle square, their cloaks dirty, while Morgause's bloodguards stand by with lances. Sir Leon shouts angrily at someone.
    -Uther, in full armour, takes part in a tournament.
    -Harry Melling's character is fighting in the tournament too but without proper armour.
    -Merlin, Arthur and Gawain filmed a scene in the forest.



    September 15th


    -A lot of fighting scenes were filmed in the car park. Arthur and Uther take part in a tournament.
    -Arthur, Gwen, Merlin, Gaius' stunt, Sir Leon, Lancelot, Gawain, Percival and Elyan flimed a scene in the woods. They walk sword in hand and seem tired.
    -Merlin and the knights filmed inside.
    -Apparently they filmed a scene involving Gwen too.



    September 16th


    -Arthur, Merlin and Gawain filmed a scene in the woods.
    -Morgana seems to be presiding at a tournament. A knight from Mercia can be seen among the audience.

    September 17th


    -Gwen filmed a scene in armour wear.
    -Arthur and Merlin filmed a short scene in the main square.
    -Arthur filmed a short but intense scene on his own.
    -More tournament scenes for Arthur, who is wearing a blue ribbon wrapped around his left arm, while Morgana watches from the throne seat. A trunk filled with gold coins is sitting beside her.
    -Colin filmed a scene to film with one of the guest actors-
    -Uther filmed a scene too.



    -Uther and Arthur both stand in the arena in full fighting gear for the tourney Morgana is presiding over.
    -Men carrying weapons stand in line to take part in a tournament.
    -Excalibur in the stone.
    -Arthur (in his chain mail) stands in the throne room in front of two equal thrones. Gwen, in a new blue dress (that matches the ribbon Arthur was fighting with) kneels down in front of him. Merlin is standing up by Gwen's side. A crown seems to be brought in. There is an gathering of knights and court people in the room as an audience.

    The Youtube link doesn't work for me, but I have added a link in the first post to a preview and 30 pictures of episode 4 that should work for everyone

    In one of BBC's season 2 trailers Arthur could be seen saying that nothing could happen between then and Merlin replying that he can change that when he is king and in the preview Arthur admits that he thinks about her all the time Lancelot looks hotter than he did in season 1, it's gonna be a great episode indeed

    Meh, too bad that we don't get a new episode this Saturday I'm on stitches about Uther marrying a troll

    I haven't heard anything yet about it. I guess not but that's just what my gut tells me, it's not based on any canon fact.

    I added a link to the trailer and some pics of 2x05 in the second post

    I guess this is the best place to post this. I live in the US & of course we don't have season 2 yet. But I have seen the 1st 4 episodes of season 2 thanks to my friend who found them on the internet for me. I thought maybe the other people in the US might want to watch them also so I'll go ahead & post the links to them & in order to make it easier. I'm in Oregon & I was able to watch them so I'm sure anyone can.

    http://fastpasstv.com/watch/2/4835/1 That 1 is episode 4 season 2. I was unable to find episode 3 again. It took my friend forever to find it the 1st time.

    Man I wish that link worked! It says Internet Explorer was unable to display page. Thankyou for the link though! I'll work on finding episode 3 season 2 in my free time. Sorry this is 1 of the shows where I have not yet memorized the episode tittles. I'm working on it though.

    I'm sorry, I tried it when I posted and it worked, but now it's not working to me either. I'll pm you with the proper address Anyone else interested to get the link, please me pm.

    P.S. I can't access typing the address either, the site is down for whatever reason. The link should work as soon as the site is up again, but I'll try to remember to pm you all the same

    Now, anyone has any idea of why Arthur threatens Uther with his sword? It must be something really big so he turns against his father like that, calling him a hypocrite and a liar. I wonder if it'll have anything to do with the fact that Arthur shares a scene with his mother, for which I guess some kind of magic is involved. Maybe he learns that magic was used so he could be conceived and that it took his mother away? But then why does Merlin seem to know something about it?

    What have I missed? How do you know that Arthur threatens Uther with a sword? I am clearly out of the loop ;-)

    Check out the second post in this thread. I update it regularly with new spoilers. I'm afraid people haven't noticed about it (even though it's explained in the first post) because there's hardly any spoiler discussion going on here, which is a pity.


    Anyway, there are also links to 3 trailers that BBC released for season 2. In the 2nd and 3rd you can see that scene, which is longer in the 3rd one. Check it out and tell me what you think


    And also, while we are at that LOL, any thoughts on who does Merlin kiss and why is he crying while he kisses her?


    Those two scenes are driving me crazy.


    Oh, and the link works now

    This clip from the trailor fasinates me too. I think it has something to do with Arthur's mother, because i swear i heard somewhere that the truth about Arthur's birth will come out. So maybe Arthur is annoyed by Uthur's anti magic stance, when he used magic (sort of) himself. this could explain the hypocrite comment. But i want to know how Arthur finds out? Because only Gaius and Uthur know. Maybe Gauis tells Merlin who in turn tells Arthur but why? because surely telling Arthur that magic killed his mum is going to make him anti magic! So maybe a third person is going to do it, but who?!

    As for who Merlin kisses? I ain't got a clue!!!
