Sword in the Stone, Part II~  
Well, I liked it. :D

- This makes me so happy, I think it tries to get past my emotionally stunted boundaries of emotions!
- ... Yeah. He died, ding dong the slimy traitor is dead~ ♥
- Did I mention he died?! :D
- Basically, I was smiling throughout this whole episode. Even during those Arthur/Gwen moments.
- This episode was so fucking pretty. *_* Like. God. So pretty...
- Isoldeeeee. :(
- Oh, and sexy Dragonspeak! Fuck yes! With running. jelazakazone is happy with that, yes?
- Excalibur! That was so fucking epic! ♥
- The end.
- Aithusa, why would you do that?! :( I love you, Aithusa, but whyyy?

And, because of the prettiness of this episode...

... Well. Fuck. Now to wait impatiently for S5... D:

Note: I did find some things wrong with this episode. Quite a lot, actually, but this is celebrating another season~ :D Plus, I'm more of a 'look at the positives' sort, anyway...

I was so afraid he wasn't going to die. Like, he'd find out, we'd think he died and then we'd find out he's alive. I was so glad it's official XD


I could not stop staring at everyone in this episode *__*

Arthur holding that sword like that does things to me. I DON'T KNOW WHY.

I'm so happy he died!! :D *twirls you*

NO ONE. He was such a BAMF this episode. More than usual, that is. *_*


Criminally Inclined®: BAMFprincealia on December 24th, 2011 08:27 pm (UTC)
I find it kind of hilarious Morgana didn't care. She was just like "...eh, get the men ready" XDD

I was kind of scared of him a little when he was just standing there over his corpse. I mean, really, no one fucks with Merlin. There's that dark!Merlin I had been hearing about. He had no times for bitches.

ugggggh merry christmas to me (and to you! XD)
Lenre Li: Arthur - neck and lipsuniversaldogma on December 24th, 2011 08:29 pm (UTC)
Who'd care about him anyway? Fuck Agravaine.

... I found it hot. But then again, I love it when Merlin actually shows his power... I love dark!Merlin, though. Considering this show is morally ambiguous anyway...

Oh yes! ♥
Criminally Inclined®: No really - you're a whoreprincealia on December 24th, 2011 08:37 pm (UTC)
I love how he tried to stab Merlin - lmfao you JUST SAID he has magic. You really think you can shank him after he just killed a room full of people?

I think that was a really defining moment. He's not that nerdy derp from series 1 anymore. He will kill you, without a second thought. And get a good night's rest, too XD

Eh. Again, fuck Agravaine. Aside from being a waste of space, we never really found out his motivations or anything besides being creepy and traitory...

Mmmm, yes. *_* Powerful!BAMF!Merlin ftw!

Criminally Inclined®: Protectprincealia on December 24th, 2011 08:49 pm (UTC)
Him calling Merlin a traitor, too, was harsh XD

I want more of that plz
Lenre Li: Merlin - just as planneduniversaldogma on December 24th, 2011 08:51 pm (UTC)
Merlin's been nothing but loyal, and Agravaine knew jack shit about loyalty. *nods*

All the time! ♥_♥
Criminally Inclined®: Ponderprincealia on December 25th, 2011 12:30 am (UTC)
Arthur's birth caused his sister's death, so I guess he makes a little sense. Just not why he's loyal to Morgana. It's not like she's paying him.

All season next year \o/

I doubt it was worth the breath, since he died anyway~ :D

It's okay...
Criminally Inclined®: Dragonprincealia on December 25th, 2011 12:28 am (UTC)
Right? Him calling Merlin a traitor for having magic was just begging to be set straight, especially since Agravaine was implying they're both traitors of the same variety.

I've been skeptical about that dragon since day 1. There's no way this show needed two, so I knew he was too good to be true. I just know if Morgana finds a way to control it, I'm going to fall over and die. She does NOT need a dragon. No dragon for you.

There's a lot of questions that last scene raises, my biggest being HOW is that going to work? I thought Dragonlording abilities were, you know, abilities. They were passed down from father to son. You can talk to a dragon, but you can't control it without that. Morgana is not a kindred spirit of the dragons. Kilgharrah has been rallying for her death for a while, so HOW is she going to use that dragon and over-ride anything Merlin can do? She can't use magic because their magic is useless on them as we learned that in series 2. What is going on with that bloody dragon?! There is an Arthurian legend about a red dragon (represented Britains/Camelot) versus a white one (represented the Saxons), but I don't know if that's what they're getting at. I like your "it was hidden for a reason" theory. That would be so typical of this show and Merlin making bad things happen inadvertently.

Merlin's magic has been up and down this season, especially his healing spells. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. The inconsistencies there make him look dense because he can remember to freeze a cup mid-air to not wake up Arthur or stop water from tipping over, but not when the fate of Camelot is about to fall into Morgause and Morgana's hands. I'm guessing the affects wore off and she was able to escape at the last second, but then why she couldn't heal herself when she was mortally wounded confuses me.

I also don't get why Aithusa is hanging out in a forest and isn't with Kilgharrah who I thought was raising him, but I guess we'll find all that out next year. I was hoping for a different cliffhanger because this one is frustrating me more than making me go "OMG!!"

I wouldn't be surprised if they're high, if only because of people wanting to see Arthur pull the sword out the stone to get Excalibur or thinking there was going to be a magic reveal. There was one...it just wasn't to Arthur.

I...don't think so? There was a lot of weird stuff going on with her in the beginning, but I don't think she did that one. I know she can hear Mordred's thoughts in the same way Merlin can, and I think her and Morgause had some kind of weird telepathic distress call, but nothing with her and Kilgharrah is coming to mind that isn't him telling Merlin not to do this and that with her. She had bad feelings about people from nightmares, too.

It's like I was saying to someone in another post, that's been a problem since series 3. They keep skipping years, which would be fine if they addressed all the problems in that years we physically see. When they don't, it just gets worse later on down the road.

YES, I said that, too. They were in there for a week and no one found that thing? Either it's not there because it was moved, that's not the exact same dungeon chamber, or that's a bit of a plot hole. I'm guessing option three knowing this show.

I thought they were going to bring in Mordred for this series towards the end, to be honest, and tell Morgana who Emrys is, but I guess they're saving that for next year. Asa was probably busy working on Hugo and never had the time.

They always do!

In an ideal world, we could get books or magazines telling us what happened. I don't see why they make novelizations of the episode when they can use that outlet to fill in gaps.

Oh, they do. They so do. That scene where Merlin basically says a man is going to reveal himself at the right time and unite Albion was totally them trying to get us thinking there was going to be a magic reveal right then. You could hear the producers laughing in their houses when Merlin said it was Arthur.

I shuffle between two theories in my head of "they aren't sure how to make him tell him" or "they're waiting until Arthur treats Merlin with complete respect and accepts magic on his own". I wouldn't mind that last one if they haven't reset his feelings on magic twice and in huge, huge ways. They're expecting Arthur to change his mind on magic despite the numerous examples of bad magic? Isn't his life hard enough without having to completely undo his own thoughts with no help? They've made everything else about him dependent upon others to guide him through it, why not this?

I don't think that Aithusa even knew that Morgana was bad. I think he just noticed she was dying and so did something about it. I don't think he, being still a hatchling, knew anything about right or wrong, or that Morgana was evil. He probably just acted on instinct. :)
Criminally Inclined®: Hostileprincealia on December 28th, 2011 04:47 pm (UTC)
Which is kind of odd considering Kilgharrah is suppose to be looking after him. What he was doing alone, let alone healing "THE WITCH, LET HER DIE AHH" is strange. I gotta wonder what exactly he's taught him so far and if that lack of learning will come in to play next season because he doesn't know who's who.

I just really don't like that dragon. I didn't from the get go XD
isisanubis on December 25th, 2011 02:25 am (UTC)
All the epic that happened this episode.

I totally thought of you when Agravaine died. The knights were all badass. I could look past the A/G moments, there was so much else to focus on. Everyone was gorgeous.
Lenre Li: Colin - OPL stage dooruniversaldogma on December 25th, 2011 02:32 am (UTC)
Yesss~ :D

... My hate of Agravaine was that notable? XD Awwww~

Yeah, I just ignore the A/G moments, which is easy enough...
