Merlin 4x06 - "A Servant of Two Masters"

I thought the opening two-parter was good, very promising despite some big plot holes. "The Wicked Day," while very well done and containing three amazing scenes, will never be my favorite for obvious reasons. Sorry to say, but I thought "Aithusa" was a bore - no knights, no women at all (???), and it's not like we're ever going to see Aithusa again. "His Father's Son" likewise pretty boring, not telling us anything we didn't already know, and completely squandering Gwaine (a crime which should be punishable by flogging).

...But this one?



OH HAI my favorite episode of the season! Good to see you!


A Servant of Two Masters

I love cheerful-sociopath-Merlin. LOVE HIM. I almost want him to come back, if that weren't basically impossible. Maybe he could get in a transporter accident and split into two halves? Every single scene where Merlin was trying to kill Arthur was comedy gold. So pretty much the whole episode.

Gwen, I missed you! You seem to have forgotten that you have a brother, but not that you are a very funny lady when you try!



And of course, AGRAVAINE. First, how hilarious was Agravaine's first scene with Morgana, where he acted like a dopey teenager around his crush? Second, just look at this face!

That is the face of real actual devastation! I have a theory. It could be bunnies. Maybe Agravaine was in love with Vivienne, Gorlois's wife. Which doubles as a bonus reason to hate Uther and a creepy reason to love Morgana.

Hmm, fic potential!

    Mm, the feelings, they are mixed. Also, this is the second episode this season with no women at all. I'm starting to think there's a queen…
