Long epic picspam for an epic episode:)
Man, I LOVED this episode. It had cracky fun AND the good kind of Merlin/Arthur AND The Start of The Tragic Legend AND an almost decent plot AND HEARTBREAK and omg THINGS HAPPENED. The only thing I didn't like was Gaius making moral judgements again. SHUT UP, GAIUS, you are not blameless in this!
Morgana/Morgause, part 1
Aww, ~secret lovenotes~ that make Gwen jealous!
Morgause: Whose side are you on, Morgana? Are you with Uther, or are you with me? Are you prepared to bring about his downfall?
Morgana: I am.
Morgause: I cannot tell you how much it means to hear you say that.
It's been done a million times on tv/in films, but I always find this kind of thing creepy. Bodies lying around everywhere, no sounds,...
On another note: I know Morgana's going to the dark side, but such an amount of eyeliner is just unnecessary!
Sadly we didn't get any OT4 this year, but at least Gwen had a plot-related reason not to be there this time. It was nice to see the three of them just interacting with each other and working together.
Aaaa-haha. I think Uther was in almost every scene, just lying on the ground somewhere. And Arthur/Merlin/Morgana constantly used him as a prop: they dragged him all over the castle, they sweeped the floor with his head, they dropped him everywhere, and they dressed him up. Ha!
Merlin: See? He's all right!
Arthur: HE. IS. NOT. ALL RIGHT!
Arthur: IT IS NOT FUNNY, MERLIN.
Arthur: We can't leave him here! We have to lift him unto the bed!
Merlin: Why? He's asleep, he's not gonna know!
Merlin: Well...I'll get him a pillow!
Arthur: He is THE KING!
Merlin: ALL RIGHT! Two pillows!
Arthur: We must keep my father hidden.
Merlin: Why don't we disguise him?
Arthur: That might just work.
Merlin: We can dress him as a woman!
Arthur: ...That, on the other hand.
Merlin: We could dress him as a servant.
Arthur: That's better.
Arthur: You look after my father, keep him safe, yeah? Here, protect him with your life.
Aww, Arthur trusts Morgana's sword-skills enough to let her be the sole protection of The King. You bet that means something to him.
Arthur: Are you all right, Morgana? You seem quiet.
Morgana: I'm fine.
Arthur: You sure? I can always tell when you're lying.
Merlin YELLS a spell right in Arthur's ear, who doesn't notice anything of course. *sigh*
Arthur: Your first battlewound! *proud*
Merlin: Oh- no. No! You ruined it.
Merlin: Don't worry, you can mend it!
LOOOL Merlin being concerned about Arthur's clothes.
Merlin: How are you feeling?
Arthur: Not bad. you?
Merlin: Never better.
Arthur: Give me a pillow, could you?
Merlin: Don't mess around. Arthur, you..Arthur?
Merlin: You need to stay awake.
Merlin: That's better!
Arthur: If you ever do that again...
Merlin: WELL DON'T FALL ASLEEP THEN.
Arthur: If I need a servant in the next life...
Merlin: Don't ask me!!!
Merlin: You have magic.
Morgana: You haven't told anyone that!
Merlin: No, and I won't tell Arthur, but...there must be something keeping you safe, and I think that must be it.
The Dragon: You must kill her.
Morgana: I was worried about you.
Morgana: Thank you for not saying anything to him.
Merlin: That's all right.
Morgana: You're a good friend.
HE LEFT HER TO DIE HOLY SHIT
Merlin: Why didn't that knight kill you?
Morgana: Because I'm a woman?
haha. OK THEN MORGANA. TIGHT EXCUSE.
Morgana: He's not gonna survive out there.We've got to do something!
Merlin: I know.
HE DOES NOT MEAN WHAT YOU THINK HE MEANS, MORGANA.
Merlin: Here, have some water.
Morgana: I'm not thirsty.
Merlin: You have some before I finish it.
Morgana: Thank you.
Oh man :(:(:(:( Just tragic. And perfect.
Morgana/Morgause, part 2
Morgause: You poisoned her?!
Morgause: Tell me the poison or you'll die!
Merlin: But she'll die with me.
AND THEN MORGAUSE CRIED AND CHOSE MORGANA OVER KILLING UTHER. It's love!
At last, the Dragon is free!
Merlin: Before I do this, you promise me, you will not harm Camelot.
Dragon: I think there have been enough bargains, don't you?

Next week: The Dragon is free! It doesn't seem like there will be any Morgana in the finale, but that means Morgause lives until S3! YAY! We can imagine Morgause & Morgana ~on their honeymoon~ all summer!
