merlin 3.12; the coming of arthur, part one

in which things get epic, sir leon makes me happy, and the title makes me think of inappropriate things. (no, really. the coming of arthur? i don't suppose merlin's got anything to do with that, has he?)



+ OMG. THE KNIGHTS OF CAMELOT ARE ALL DEAD! HOW CAN THIS BE! THEY WERE SO GOOD AT FIGHTING! /sarcasm

+ SIR LEON! NO! LOLS, I LOVE HOW EVERYONE'S TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH LEON. BUT YAY, THE DRUIDS SAVE HIM! \o/ WHICH MAKES ME SO FUCKING HAPPY, BECAUSE FOR A MINUTE THERE, I WAS AFRAID HE WAS DEAD ALREADY.

+ THE HOLY GRAIL! \o/ SO FUCKING EXCITED, OMG OMG OMG.

+ HEE, AND THEN EVERYONE BACK IN CAMELOT'S RIDICULOUSLY HAPPY ABOUT LEON BEING ALIVE AND WELL! EVEN UTHER! AND LOLS, THEN HE GOES ALL "OMG, DRUIDS! SAUCERY!" YAY! :D :D :D :D

AND I HONESTLY HAVE NO IDEA WHY GAIUS CAN'T JUST LIE TO UTHER ABOUT ALL THINGS MAGIC. LIKE, HE DOESN'T ALWAYS HAVE TO TELL HIM THAT THIS OR THAT'S A MAGICAL THING, YOU KNOW. I GET UTHER'S REASONING THIS TIME, WHY THEY'VE GOT TO GET THE CUP, BUT LOLS, IF GAIUS REALLY THOUGHT IT'D BE SAFER WITH THE DRUIDS, WOULDN'T THAT BE INCENTIVE ENOUGH TO LIE? :D :D

+ ... WHAT. SO, ER. THE CUP NIMUEH HAD ON THE ISLE OF THE BLESSED, THE ONE USED TO SAVE ARTHUR, THAT WAS THE HOLY GRAIL ALL ALONG? ... I ER, KNEW IT! ALL ALONG, I TOTALLY KNEW IT! /shifty look

(BUT SERIOUSLY? SO FUCKING AWESOME, OMG. THIS MAKES ME WANT TO REWATCH THE FIRST SEASON EVEN MORE NOW.)

+ SO UTHER SENDS ARTHUR ON A QUEST, AND ARTHUR WANTS TO TAKE HIS MOST TRUSTED MEN. WHO, PRAY TELL, WOULD THAT BE? ALL HIS KNIGHTS ARE DEAD, OKAY, EXCEPT FOR SIR LEON. HE HAS NO TRUSTED MEN LEFT! :D :D :D :D OH ILU, SHOW.

ALSO, HEE, I LOVE HOW "GOING ALONE" NATURALLY EQUALS "GOING ALONE WITH MERLIN". :D :D :D :D AND THAT SCENE AFTERWARDS, IN ARTHUR'S CHAMBERS? THEY'RE SO BICKERING LIKE A MARRIED COUPLE, IT'S RIDICULOUS. I LOVE IT. :D

+ HI, MORGAUSE! \o/ AND HI, STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL KATIE! BUT NOT HI, MORGANA, BECAUSE OH MY GOD STOP SMIRKING. I JUST WANT TO HEADDESK WHENEVER SHE'S ON SCREEN IN THIS EPISODE, ARGH.

+ KING CENRED OF THE LEATHERPANTS! HOW I'VE WAITED FOR YOUR LEATHERY VILLAIN-NESS! :D :D :D

+ OMG LOL, AND THEN SOMEONE KNOCKS ARTHUR AND MERLIN OUT JUST LIKE THAT. :D :D

+ GWAINE! HEE, SO AWESOMESAUCE! AND HEE, LOOK AT MERLIN'S LITTLE FACE, HE'S JUST SO HAPPY TO SEE GWAINE AGAIN! EEE, SO ADORABLE!

+ OASLHJFL;ALKFJDLKJAF;LAKJFLDFJKLDJLFAKLFD AND WHEN THAT SLAVE TRADER CHOOSES MERLIN (OF COURSE) TO FIGHT THE CHAMPION, ARTHUR'S FACE! HE'S LIKE "OH GOD, NOT AGAIN", AND IMMEDIATELY STEPS IN TO TAKE MERLIN'S PLACE, BECAUSE HE OBVS HAS TO PROTECT HIS BF, AND EVEN WHEN MERLIN TELLS HIM NOT TO DO IT, HE DOES! HEE! AND AND AND THEN THE BAD GUY THREATENS MERLIN SOME MORE, AND ARTHUR LOOKS SO WORRIED! :D :D :D

... AND THEN WE FIND OUT THE CHAMPION'S GWAINE, WHICH, LOLOLOL. :D :D :D

+ AND THEN THEIR FIGHT! LOLOL, THEY'RE NOT ACTUALLY TRYING TO KILL EACH OTHER, BUT THEY'RE STILL TAKING IT FAR TOO SERIOUSLY AND TRYING TO WIN BECAUSE IDK, THEY ANNOY ONE ANOTHER? BUT IT'S LIKE THEY'RE FIGHTING OVER MERLIN, OH GOD. ESPECIALLY WITH MERLIN LOOKING ON ALL WORRIED IN THE BACKGROUND. :D :D :D :D :D

+ HEE, AND WHEN THEY ESCAPE, ARTHUR LITERALLY DRAGS MERLIN WITH HIM! HEE, HE JUST CAN'T TRUST ANYONE ELSE TO TAKE CARE OF MERLIN, NOT EVEN MERLIN HIMSELF! :D

+ OASLHFLK;ALKJFLD AND THEN MERLIN GOES AND TELLS GWAINE THAT THEY'RE SEARCHING FOR THE HOLY GRAIL, AND ARTHUR WANTS HIM TO SHUT UP, BUT MERLIN JUST GOES "IT'S GWAINE!" LIKE THAT'S ALL THEY REALLY NEED, OF COURSE THEY CAN TRUST GWAINE. :D :D :D

+ !!! OASLJHFL;ALFKJDLJALKFJDL;ALFKJLDJLAKJFLDKJFLD

THE NEXT SCENE WITH THE BOYS IS THE BEST SCENE EVER, OMG. ARTHUR AND GWAINE BICKERING ABOUT WHO WOULD'VE WON, AND MERLIN GOING ALL, "ONE MORE MINUTE AND YOU BOTH WOULD'VE BEEN DEAD! NEITHER OF YOU WON. YOUR PLAN WAS A HALF-BAKED DISASTER!" AND JUST, YAY, FINALLY! IT WOULD'VE BEEN EVEN BETTER IF THEY KNEW IT WAS MERLIN WHO SAVED THEIR ASSES, BUT EVEN WHEN THEY DON'T, I'M SO FUCKING GLAD TO SEE MERLIN GET ALL IRRITATED WITH BOTH OF THEM. :D :D :D :D

HEE, AND THEN ARTHUR AND GWAINE LOOK AT EACH OTHER, ALL "WHAT'S UP WITH HIM?" :D :D :D

+ DRUIDS TALKING IN MERLIN'S HEAD! :D

+ ... UM. "THEY CAN'T BE TRUSTED, MERLIN. NO ONE CAN. THE ONLY SAFE PLACE FOR THE CUP IS THE VAULTS OF CAMELOT." OH, THE IRONY. AND MERLIN DOESN'T THINK THAT MORGANA COULD JUST, IDK, STEAL IT? :D

+ AND ARTHUR GETS SHOT AGAIN, ONLY THIS TIME IN THE LEG. (AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS HIS BOTTOM. UM.) ... AND THEN THEY LOSE THE CUP, LOLS. MERLIN COULD'VE JUST USED HIS MAGIC (BECAUSE ARTHUR WAS ONCE AGAIN CONVENIENTLY OUT OF IT!) TO KILL THE BAD GUYS OR KNOCK THEM UNCONSCIOUS, BUT THEN WE'D HAVE NO PLOT. :D

+ OHNOES, ARTHUR'S BEEN POISONED! MERLIN'S SO WORRIED! I LOVE IT! :D

+ HELLO AGAIN, SIR LEON OF THE SWISHY HAIR! YES, DO GO OUT AND SEARCH FOR ARTHUR! SAVE THE DAY! :D

+ HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, MERLIN'S NOT BEING SO SUBTLE ABOUT WANTING GWAINE TO GO OUT AND LEAVE MERLIN AND ARTHUR ALONE FOR A MINUTE, IS HE? DIFFERENCE IS, GWAINE PROBABLY THINKS MERLIN JUST WANTS TO CUDDLE ARTHUR OR MAYBE HAVE A BIT OF A CRY OVER HIM, AND MERLIN JUST WANTS TO TRY AND HEAL HIM (AND AFTER THAT, CRY FOR A BIT).

+ OOH, HELLO, COLIN MORGAN'S HAND! DON'T YOU LOOK LOVELY THIS EVENING! BUT AW, MERLIN'S SPELLS AREN'T WORKING. D: HE LOOKS SO WORRIED! AND OH GOD, HE JUST SOUNDS ABSOLUTELY WRECKED. D: D: D: AND AW, MERLIN PUTTING HIS OWN JACKET ON ARTHUR TO KEEP HIM WARM! ♥

+ OMG! LE GASP! MORGAUSE TURNS ON KING CENRED OF THE LEATHERPANTS! NO! B-BUT HE CAN'T DIE, CAN HE? WHERE WILL WE GET OUR WEEKLY DOSE OF LEATHER? D: ALSO, IS IT JUST ME OR DOES IT LOOK LIKE CENRED'S STABBED IN THE GROIN? :D :D

+ YES! GO, LEON AND THE LEONETTES! \o/ ... AND THEN NOT GO, BECAUSE ER. THEY ALL DIE? LOLS WHAT IS THIS. FIRST OF ALL, WHERE'D THEY EVEN FIND MORE KNIGHTS? AND THEY ALL DIE JUST LIKE THAT, OH MY GOD. IT'S LIKE THEY'RE NOT EVEN TRAINED TO FIGHT AT ALL. HAHA, THIS SHOW KILLS ME WITH THE LULZ. :D :D :D

WELL, AT LEAST SIR LEON'S SWISHY HAIR SURVIVES! :D

+ HEE, MERLIN SUPPORTING ARTHUR! \o/

+ "GATHER THE KNIGHTS!" ... WHAT SODDING KNIGHTS THEY'RE ALL FUCKING DEAD, OKAY. JESUS CHRIST. WHERE DO THEY EVEN GET THEM ALL? HONESTLY. LOL, IT'S LIKE THEY JUST PRODUCE KNIGHTS IN CAMELOT JUST LIKE THAT. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

+ OOH, AND WHEN GAIUS SAYS "WE HAVE A TRAITOR IN OUR MIDST", NO ONE NOTICES MORGANA SMIRKING HER EVIL SMIRK OF EBILZ? ESPECIALLY WHEN GAIUS LOOKS AT HER? OH DEAR, WHAT SILLY PEOPLE THEY'VE GOT IN CAMELOT.

+ OHNOES, LEON OF THE SWISHY HAIR LOOKS WORRIED! D:

+ OMG! WE GET TO SEE GWEN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE WHOLE EPISODE! BUT YAY, HER SCENE WAS AWESOME. \o/ JUST, THAT WHOLE THING WITH MORGANA, OMG. (AND LOLS, AND MORGANA SMIRKING WHEN SHE SAYS THERE'S NO WORD ON ARTHUR, OH GOD, COULD SHE BE MORE OBVIOUS?) AND AND AND OH MY GOD WHAT, SO MORGANA STILL CARES FOR GWEN? SHE SEEMS SO PLEASED WHEN GWEN SAYS SHE'LL ALWAYS BE LOYAL TO MORGANA. LIKE, SHE'S GENUINELY HAPPY THAT SHE'S GOT A REASON TO KEEP GWEN SAFE. WHICH I REALLY, REALLY FUCKING LOVE, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I NEVER UNDERSTOOD, HER WILLINGNESS TO SACRIFICE GWEN.

BUT OMG, AND GWEN'S LOOK! SHE'S SO ONTO MORGANA! HEE, I LOVE IT! \o/

+ OH LOOK, ALL THE KNIGHTS ARE DEAD! AGAIN! WHAT A SURPRISE! :D :D

+ ELYAN! \o/

+ HEE! MERLIN BEING ALL SCREW YOUR ORDERS, ARTHUR, I'M TAKING CARE OF YOU NOW! :D :D :D :D :D

+ YAY, GAIUS! HIDING IN A CLOSET! \o/ ... AND NO ONE HEARS THEM SCREAMING IN DELIGHT? LOLS, OH GOD, THIS SHOW. :D BUT AW, HUGGING! MERLIN LOOKING INCREDIBLY HAPPY! :D ALSO MERLIN TAKING THE VIAL OF WATER FROM THE LAKE OF AVALON, OMG! LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE OF THAT!

+ OASLHLF;ALKFJDLJFLAKJFLDKJFLAKJFDLKJFLDKJFLDAKJFLKDHL THE SCENE AFTER THAT OH MY GOD OH MY GOD SO WONDERFULLY GAY.

ARTHUR TRYING TO PROTECT MERLIN AGAIN BY TELLING HIM HE SHOULD GO TO THE WOODS WITH GAIUS, GWAINE AND ELYAN BUT IT'S JUST, HEE, IT'S SO OBVIOUS THAT ARTHUR KNOWS (AND SORT OF HOPES) THAT MERLIN'LL STICK WITH HIM, AND AND AND MERLIN'S "NAH, I'VE SEEN THE WOODS ALREADY" AND THE LOOK ON ARTHUR'S FACE! JUST, OH GOD, SO AWESOMESAUCE. SOMEHOW HE JUST LOOKS SO HAPPY THAT MERLIN'S STAYING WITH HIM, HEE! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

+ MORGAUSE & UTHER CONFRONTATION! \o/ AND THE REVEAL, THAT MORGANA'S BEEN WORKING AGAINST CAMELOT ALL ALONG! AND AW, THE LOOK ON ARTHUR'S FACE WHEN HE HEARS THAT MORGANA'S HIS SISTER, JUST. POOR THING. D:

BUT I REALLY HOPE ARTHUR NOTICED HOW NOT SURPRISED MERLIN WAS ABOUT MORGANA BEING EVIL. BECAUSE OMG, IDK, I JUST FEEL LIKE MERLIN SHOULD GET A "TOLD YOU SO!" MOMENT, EVEN WHEN HE NEVER DID TELL ARTHUR SO. :D

+ MORGANA AS QUEEN! I HAVE TO SAY, SHE DOES MAKE QUITE A FABULOUS EVIL QUEEN. \o/

+ OH MY GOD NEXT WEEK I CANNOT FUCKING WAIT OH MY GOD JUST OAFLJD;ALFJDL IS IT HERE ALREADY? MERLIN AND ARTHUR! THE SLASH DRAGON! UTHER! LEON! LANCELOT OH MY GOD I'VE MISSED HIM! THE ROUND TABLE! EXCALIBUR! OH MY GOD OASLHFLD THE ROUND TABLE AND EXCALIBUR, I'M SO IMPATIENT I JUST OALSJKLF;ALKFJDL CAN'T WAIT.
