    Fingers crossed that Arthur sees Merlin do some magic and the secret is out (even if Merlin doesn't realise he knows)

    Oooh what a great idea, because then we'd have a sort of cliffhanger and series 3 could start with Arthur trying to work out how to tell Merlin he knows and how to protect him from his dad. And Merlin still trying to keep his secret, secret unaware Arthur knows. It could provide some great laughs!



    Do you mean Arthur trying to protect Merlin from HIS dad ie Uther or from Merlin's dad ie (I think) Balinor? Either would be good. I have a feeling though, as I said above, that Balinor might be a goner. Hope not. It would be good for Merlin to have someone other than Gaius to guide him.

    In fact a thought occurs. Maybe the person 'very, very close to Merlin' that he loses is Gaius. Merlin would still need a guide to help him understand his powers, but that could become his father. Oh dear. I don't like that thought!

    It would be good if Lancelot came back in Episode 12 or 13, instead of us having to wait til Series 3.

    Wow, that is so intense if Balinor is Merlin's dad and he hates Uther to death! Merlin can get stuck in the middle of some really difficulst situations there. It would make sense that Gaius would have spared Balinor, seeing as he is/was related to his sister. Also it always sounds to me like Gaius is a sorcerer at heart, so made sure back then to leave a door open for magic.

    Also, did you guys watch the last Secrets and Magic? Johnny Capps said that Freya will be back and not only to provice Merlin with Excalibur. So I'm guessing she is gonna be back before the end of the season. I believe it's Excalibur the sword used to free the Great Dragon.

    What else was I going to say? Oh yea, I've seen some pics of Morgana wearing Morgause's bracelet in episodes to come, so the idea that it protects her from the enchantment that affects all the rest sounds even more good now.

    New promo pics for 2x10 and 2x12 here, tons of Morgause / Morgana!

    Hmm. I am not particularly optimistic about this ep and the new trailer hasn't really whetted my appetite much. But I will watch with an open mind and hope for some good A/M or A/G moments.

    Guess it's meant as something to balance out for the drama of the previous episodes and of the ones to come. I hope we get a couple of good meaningful scenes in between the fun.

    Preview for 2x11 here

    If Merlin's Dad is the last remaining Dragon Lord, it's a fair bet that he helped Uther imprison the dragon. But if that's the case why is the Dragon helping Merlin? The Dragon isn't one to forgive yet he may have forgiven the son of the man who imprisoned him. Hmm why is the 19th so long away!!

    We don't know that merlin's dad is the one that imprisoned the dragon. Also even if he was why would the dragon know that he was merlin's dad. I cannot wait for the next 3 eps. They look fantastic.

    I don't think that the Dragon cares about who Merlin's father is. Even if his father inprisoned him, the Dragon knows that only Merlin can return magic to the kingdom and that by offering his help (which has been much needed in several occasions), he would achieve freedom. And well, it's kind of an ironic pay-off to be freed by the son of the man who put him in chains. Once he is free, he will seek revenge as he finds more fit, and on whoever he wants, even Merlin's dad.


    Promo pics for 2x13 here and here Looks really epic!

    Hmmm. Not keen on this clip. Arthur is being horrible to merlin. The point about his chamber being locked at all times was rich. Noone locks their doors. If they did most of the plots we have seen wouldn't work

    still looking forward to it although I am more keen on the sound of the last 2 to this one.

    Yeah, Merlin has no way to know every time Arthur goes in and out of his room. He is busy enough doing chores all around for Arthur, for Gaius and enjoying the free time he gets. And in the past, Morgana and Cedric stole Arthur's keys as well and he didn't blame Merlin or anyone else.

    It's odd that he should blame him as i think over the course of the 2 series Arthur's room has never been locked and doesn't Arthur only take his keys off when he sleeps? In which case he's in the room and surely wouldn't want to be locked in!! On the other hand maybe Arthur knows Urthur will probably blame him for the stones dissapearence and therefor is annoyed so blames everyone but himself!!

    Also i've found this http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressreleases/stories/2009/12_december/03/merlin.shtml I know we've all known for some time that we were getting a third series but here is the offical, shiney, proper proof!

    Cedric mentioned about being in the anteroom and Gwen is often around when Morgana has her nightmares, so that puzzles. Do servants never get to sleep in their own bed or just when it fits the plotline?

    I agree that Arthur is blaming Merlin in his frustration, Uther is probably disappointed and blaming him in turn and he can't stand that.

    *jumps up and down for a season 3 official confirmation*
