30 Days of Merlin
Day 03 - Your favourite episode
Okay this one was quite hard. I pick Merlin Season 1 Episode 11 - The Labyrinth of Gedref. Why? Well this when we truly see that both are willing to die for each other. It also show my favorite line by Arthur - “I’m glad you’re here, Merlin.” This shows that even if it really is his last day, he was glad to have spent his last minutes with Merlin. Merlin on the other hand followed Arthur because he was worried. Overall, the episode was really good.
Other episodes I would have picked:
1 x 4 - The Poisoned Chalice: Arthur was willing to disobey the King to save his servant. It also shows that they’re connected, that neither would’ve lived if the other had not. Merlin was dying from the poison and needed Arthur but Arthur was about to die from getting the flower that Gaius needs. As Merlin is dying he saves Arthur with the light. Merlin saves Arthur and Arthur saves Merlin. Also it features my favourite Merlin outfit (the red hat and cape) and we get to see Merlin writhing in his bed, all sweaty, moaning Arthur’s name… o.o
2 x 9 - The Lady of the Lake: OH MY FAWKING GAWD. Never have I shed so much tears for a show. I felt what Merlin felt, but tenfolds! That’s how good Colin’s acting is. It was truly depressing. What’s even sadder is that it’s Merlin who was the only one affected. It’s always Merlin who had to feel such sadness. His best friend, his first love, his father…. He’s so strong.
2 x 13 - The Last Dragonlord: Sad episode. Merlin’s father dies. First time we see Merlin as a Dragonlord. And damn, his sexiness was augmented from Dragonspeak. I just can’t- aaaaah. Also features my second favourite Merlin line - “WILLITBEHOTWILLITBECOLDWILLITBEWETWILLITBEDRY?”
3 x 08 - The Eye of the Phoenix: Courage(Arthur), Magic(Merlin) and Strength(Gwaine) all working together. We get to see Merlin use his Dragonlord powers. It was simply a really really good episode.
3 x 13 - The Coming of Arthur Part 2: No need for an explanation. Badass episode. Merthur bond getting stronger. Round table. They were able to take the kingdom back from Queen Morgana - difficult task. We get to see Gaius use magic!
4 x 03 - The Wicked Day: DRAGOON THE GREAT. <3 Features my favourite Merlin line - “I didn’t want you to feel the you were alone.” Merthur friendship gets stronger. Arthur becomes King. Merlin actualyl says Long Live King Arthur. If this is not one of your favourite episodes then I don’t know what to say.
