so I watched it yesterday and I'm in shock. I knew it was gonna happen but I'm still in shock. My rambling review under the cut.



Arthur/Merlin: I loved the Arthur/Merlin scenes! We got to see Arthur actually admit that Merlin is his friend and that was so great and moving. I loved all of their scenes. Though I wished that Gwen was in it more with Arthur and Merlin because they gonna be ruling together and they get along so well. Or maybe I just wished there was more Gwen in it.

I also loved the little A/G one too. I think Gwen knew that he didn't want a hug in that moment. (I have more thoughts on this scene down further...)

I felt really bad for Merlin at the end because he so wanted to change Arthur's view on magic but Morgana got in the way. I do so hope that Merlin finds a way to help change Arthur's mind in regards with magic. We need that to happen.

I must say that I found Morgana's way of killing Uther anticlimactic. After last year and her attempts to kill him I would have loved for her to have actually been there to do it. I mean she really hated him and while she enchanted the necklace charm it was Agraivaine that got to give it to him. I think Morgana's reaction was weird too, she was conflicted which was great to see. But why? Because Uther was her father or because she thought it would make her happy and it hasn't.

Bradley was superb in this episode. His scenes made me cry and the end when he was crowned (I hate that crown!) and Gwen and Merlin were so proud. Their faces! I loved it!

I just wished that that Gauis could have told Arthur that it was Morgana that actually killed him (or just made it go quicker because he was fatally wounded!) because now Arthur hates magic just when it looked like he was going to come around to it.

I know some people think that being sad over Uther's death isn't right considering what he has done. However, I do think that Uther was blinded by his grief over his wife's death and while what he did for the 20 or so years after it is totally wrong, I did love seeing the loving side of Uther. He said he was proud of his son and it meant a lot for Arthur for Uther to say that because let's face it the Pendragons are not so good with dealing with the emotional stuff a lot of the time.

Now is it just me or is everyone not excited by A/G anymore? I mean I know that A/M had some great moments in 4x03 but I do think that the Gwen look at the end when Arthur is crowned king was very moving....

I wasn’t happy that there wasn’t another A/G scene. Like I loved the little A/G scene but everyone else is complaining about it, that Gwen should have given Arthur some comfort. But I think that Gwen knew that Arthur didn’t want that. Also it did look like Gwen was going to when she said “oh Arthur” but then didn’t so maybe she was going to but realised that he didn’t need it in that moment. I just think he needed someone to listen to him, if you know what I mean. Also I have a feeling that Gwen knew (and Arthur too) that Uther wasn’t going to make it.

People also seem to be upset that Gwen said that she is doing it for Arthur, but honestly we know that Gwen is doing for that reason. After all Uther nearly killed her twice and murdered her father. The point is that Gwen loves and cares for Arthur so much that she was only taking care of Uther because that is what you do when you love someone.

God this is so rambling but my point is I just hope we get some more A/G scenes because I know that A/M will always be more important, but A/G are gonna get married at some point and Lancelot is gonna cause problems and before that happens I want some A/G ness being cute and adorable and kissing.

Comments are ♥ and appreciated!

Came here from tumblr and I just have to say that I almost had to pause the show while I was watching when Merlin was trying to heal Uther...I just knew it was going to turn bad and oh, Merlin's face!!! Really, Colin can do things with his eyes and actions that just make me feel so many emotions. Bradley was also amazing in this episode and when he kissed his father on the forehead....I was crying.

As far as not being excited about A/G...I'm still excited about them, but I also feel like there has been so much other drama in the past few episodes they haven't had time to have their "moments." (This is probably why I've written my own A/G scenes into the episodes...lol.) But I'm hoping that we get some time in the next few episodes where Arthur and Gwen can have the talks they used to have. So far, they've been very short and while a lot of emotion has been shown, I want them to talk about them and the future and Arthur's feelings and Gwen's feelings. But I do feel that theres just been so much other stuff going on we're not getting this moments between them.

I do think eventually Agravaine is going to try to hurt Gwen and I will be eager to see how Arthur responds to it. There have been hits that he's going to use her to get to Arthur and I'm hoping that will also drive their story forward. I want to see Arthur talk to Gwen about becoming Queen and what exactly is she going to be doing now, btw? She was taking care of Uther...so now...what?

Okay, I'll stop rambling now. Haha. But yeah, could talk about these two for a long time.

I think it's really both. She probably did think she'd have this awesome moment of triumph when Uther finally dies, but all she feels is his suffering. Also, he was her last living blood relative, and now she really is all alone in the world, so she's lamenting the loss of her father (and really the one person in the world who loved her better than almost anything).

I know some people think that being sad over Uther's death isn't right considering what he has done.

Eh. I disagree. Yes, he's been tyrannical towards magic and quite a hypocrite, but he's also put Camelot before anything else in his life, he's never been afraid to fight for his kingdom, and he's kept his people in relative peace and quiet. I mean, the people obviously liked him, or why even bother with that candlelight vigil business?

What about Arthur though? Arthur cares for her or he did till he found out that she was evil and betrayed him. But I do think that Morgana did feel his death and while she hates him, he was still her father and she knew that he loved her despite the fact that she thought he would kill her if he knew that she had magic.

I'm glad that you agree with me on that point. Uther has done evil things but it doesn't mean that he didn't care for his children and Camelot.
