  • Quotes

    • Arthur: You knew Agravaine was betraying me.
      Merlin: I couldn't be sure... but I did have my suspicions.
      Arthur: I feel like such a fool. I put such trust in him. All this time, I was blind to his treachery as I was to Morgana's.
      Merlin: You were deceived. It could happen to anyone.
      Arthur: Yet it keeps happening to me. I cared about these people. I don't understand. What have I done wrong? Why do they hate me?
      Merlin: No, they don't hate you, they just... crave your power for themselves.
      Arthur: Perhaps. But would they still want that power if I was the King my people deserve? Maybe Tristan was right.
      Merlin: Tristan was angry and... afraid. He needed to blame someone but it's not you that's to blame.
      Arthur: You seem very sure about all this.
      Merlin: All I know is that for all your many faults, you are honest and brave and true-hearted. And one day you will be the greatest King this land has ever known.
      Arthur: Well... good to know I have the support of my servant, at least.
      Merlin: I'm not alone. Believe me.
