    Hmm... didn't look at it that way. I thought of the older Mordred as a new character when it's actually a new actor.

    I hope the Alvarr spoiler stands because I'd like that

    Arthur will be 30 in S5 O.O.


    I hope Arthur and Gwen haven't had kids during the gap.



    Yeah! Alvarr!

    The 'held captive' thing is pretty cool, I just hope its Aithusa and not Mordred. Its a nice spin on her character and hopefully it means we will see different sides to her character I just hope she doesn't go back to being the needy weakling she was back in s3.


    Her need for revenge against 'everyone' sounds pretty cool though.

    Thank you so much for uploading the video... awesome. My impression of the interview was that it was a character we haven't met yet but it could still be Mordred. It was also cool to hear Katie refer to Aithiusa as " my dragon ". So the earlier spoilers saying that Morgana will have control of the white dragon are true. Just curious as to how that will happen? Is Morgana a dragonlord as well?

    I guess that she has control of Aithusa simply because they form a "friendship" (so to speak) bond. A dragon is free to submit to anyone's will (while doing their own will at the same time) until they are commanded the contrary by a dragonlord. So I guess that Morgana's link with Aithusa is not a magical one, otherwise the whole dragonlord storyline would be awfully mistreated. I refuse to believe that Morgana is suddenly powerful enough to overpass a dragonlord's magic.

    Tony Head to guest star this season! Yippee! (I'm following the twitter streams from Comic Con.)



    Hoping the new trailer will be on the Official YT site later. There's a S1-S4 trailer that may be the one they just showed at Comic Con.

    Source?

    If you mean the MTV interview I think that Katie was thinking globally about the show and not just season 5. Anyone?

    Thanks

    Co-creator and exec prod Johnny Capps just revealed Anthony Head returns in Season 5 in a guest role as Uther!" Source.

    Gwen has "been forgiven," knows that she has Arthur's trust & their relationship has survived & grown Source.

    Great S5 trailer, lots of snow, clash btwn Gwen & Morgana and Arthur & Merlin pledging to die for one another! Source.

    No love interest for Merlin Source.

    Evil Morgana was so isolated in Season 4 that Katie says she loves working this year w/Colin, Angel & Bradley Source.

    Spectacular Merlin trailer! Includes beautiful new locations (SNOW!), Arthur's bane, and get this - Gwen vs Morgana action! Source.

    "[Merlin and Arthur] love each other really." I don't think we interpret that the same way, Julian" Source.

    They may be planning 3 movies as well as a Season 6: "One idea we've been playing around with is to reboot the whole series [for the films]," says Capps. "We would go back in time and start the story again and show different parts that you didn't see in the series. The other idea is to do a continuation, but we haven't decided yet." Source.

    Morgana is hunting something called Arthur's Bane Source.

    Trailer! Round table. Shirtless tom. Snow. Merlin and arthur in a net Source.

    Katie working more with people this year. They make angel cry a lot apparently Source.

    Lots of Merlin and Arthur centric scenes in the trailer Source.

    -Uther returns in a very unexpected way and returns in Arthur's life where he's missing his father and he needs some advice and in a moment of weakness, and he is able to contact Uther.
    -What's great about this season, it relies more on the four of us [ARthur, Merlin, Gwen and Morgana] to carry the story, it's not so much a villain of the week Source.

    Lots of epic Morgana/Gwen scenes in trailer. Shirtless Percy&Gwaine. Bradders in the red tunic looking fine! Hair shiny ‪Source.

    More bloopers. Eoin falling over in the snow. ALOT! Bradley holding his sword out to Merlin then ramming it in his stomach! ‪Source.

    3/4 nice Bradley/Colin bloopers! The best one was Arthur pulling on leather glove then clenching fist saying "Shall I show you!" ‪Source.

    The bloopers were incredible. Bradley obviously messing up a lot! Ade & Eoin leaning in to say the line he fluffed 3 times! ‪Source.

    The enchanted bracelet is gone ‪Source.

    Angel talks about how Gwen & Arthur's relationship has grown stronger since last season ‪Source.

    I really haven't been that excited about s5..UNTIL NOW. All these spoilers sound amazing. The cynic in me appreciates that, as with most things Merlin, the ideas will be fantastic with a shoddy execution, but right at this moment I don't care and I'm just fan boy-ing over a more integrated Morgana.

    I'm gonna post this here, as the poster is spoiler, I guess. But I'm surprised Gaius features so prominently in the season poster. I wonder whether this has any bearing on the overall season plot and how his role might expand (or, am I totaly mistaken and is it not Gaius?)
