(Merlin has been put in the stocks for standing up to Arthur)
Gwen: I saw what you did. It was so brave.
Merlin: It was stupid.
Gwen: Well, I'm glad you walked away. You weren't going to beat him.
Merlin: Oh, I could beat him.
Gwen: You think? Because you don't look like one of these big muscley kind of fellows.
Gwen: No, no. I'm sure you're stronger than you look. It's just... Arthur's one of these real rough, tough save-the-world kind of men and well...
Gwen: You don't look like that.
Merlin: (Beckoning her closer) I'm in disguise.
Gwen: (Laughing) Well, it's great you stood up to him.
Merlin: You think so?
Gwen: Arthur's a bully and everyone thought you were a real hero.
