BBC (ended 2012)
|Morgause's schemes in The Fires of Idirsholas and The Sins of the Father, those make for two of my top most favourite episodes.|
Honestly I think Myror is good at his trade: mini bow and arrow,athleticskills, He climbs an upright tower's wall in no time, He's good at making small talk and obtaining info. I don't think he needed to joust to kill Arthur. If the guards had not passed by Gwen's at theprecisetime they did, he would have killed the prince easily. I think taking part in the jousting was a clever way do delay detection and thediscoverythat the death is no accident.
Best scheme is definitely Morgause's in Sins of the Father. It's a cunning plan, she makes Arthur trust her then sets him up to do her dirty work and kill Uther, which would in turn tear the kingdom apart. It's all very clever.
Uther's scheme to lock people up in his dungeons is a pretty poor one, i mean despite Merlin's belief that they are so secure, who stays in there?

|I think that the fact that Morgana is conflicted and easily manipulated makes her unpredictable and dangerous, which is good for the character and the plotlines in general, but I don't think it makes her a great villain because she wasn't able to achieve nothing on her own. However, from the moment she stopped being that much conflicted and became driven by hatred and vengeance (to the point of not minding to get her half brother and innocent people killed) she became a better villain. She plotted on her own in 3x11 and did fairly well despite not succeeding.|
|When she was manipulated she hardly did any plotting but following someone else's plans. Dangerous, yes. Great villain, nope.|
|But the best has got to be Coming of Arthur Part 1 for me... I nearly died watching the pre-credit bits...|
Best opening for me is S2 ep 8...(no surprise there, huh?) Sins of the Father
Morgause: Arthur Pendragon, a great destiny awaits you. The battle for your soul is about to begin...
Not sure if Morgause fighting her way into the castle is considered an "opening" or not but it is fabulous all the way...love it!
