"If you had, you know, the choice, what would you do? If you had the power over life and death over Uther? Would you kill him for what he did?"

"No."

"No?"

"What would that solve? That would make me a murderer. That would make me as bad as him."

Indeed, Gwen. Indeed.

This is lovely. I've watched it twice & I'm still working my way through the layers, but I love the progression from the playful dynamics between Merlin & Arthur at the start to the darker themes in the series, and Gwen watching Morgana leave. You've chosen great clips for the song, which really draws out the tensions in Arthur and Merlin's powers - the ability to command loyalty in the cause of justice and yet the constant threat they exercise.
