Merlin 2x02

Liveblog reactions as last week.

+ Hi Adrian Lester hi! Normally I would be crossing my fingers and hoping you'll live, but I am aware that the chances of that are really very slim. Alas!

+ ... wait a minute. They're exploring the idea Arthur's a murderer, really? Omg, show, please actually go there. I am dubious, however.

+ ! It's called The Once and Future Queen? I did not know that! AWESOME. :D *waits eagerly for Gwen*

+ Merlin's little sporfle! HOW IS HE SO CUTE. HOW. *hearts*

+ HI GWEN YOU LOOK PRETTY. (They're not going to explain the dress thing, are they? Clearly it is therefore canon that it's from Morgana. :D)

+ Arthur/Gwen/Merlin = OT3, ahahahah. Clearly I am not going to stop shipping everyone with everyone any time soon.

+ GWEN'S FAAAACE OMG, she is so dubious of Arthur and I love her.

+ Also, while I appreciate what they're doing here with Arthur's assumptions and privilege and Gwen being gracious enough to just go with it, why has she conveniently moved house to somewhere with only one bed? Eh, *handwave*

+ I may have a little thing for hardcore assassin types, um. MYROR IS AWESOME.

+ WHY SO ADORABLE, GWEN? eeeee!

+ Oh, Merlin, ILU. He's so sad Arthur doesn't know him for who he truly is!

+ GWEN HAS FLOWERS IN HER HAIR.

+ Why yes, approximately 50% of this post is turning out to be I HEART GWEN YAY.

+ ARTHUR YOU PRIVILEGED PRAT. I love you, but, you know. I am glad they are making it nice and canon that Gwen >>> you at the moment.

+ OH MY GOD MERLIN I LOVE YOU SO MUCH COME HERE AND LET ME HUG YOU. That outburst at Gaius was just -- OH SWEETHEART. :(((

+ Okay, it is twenty minutes in and Morgana hasn't even had a line yet.

+ THIS is how you do Arthur/Gwen, I love it.

+ I TAKE IT BACK. Gwen > THE UNIVERSE.

+ Arthur is officially the KING OF PRATS, god. Way to be.

+ No, really. EMPEROR OF PRATS, OH MY GOD. *cringe*

+ OMG KISS WHAT I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT.

+ Plot plot plot.

+ Okay, so did Myror just RANDOMLY DIE FROM FALLING OVER? I mean, what. Excuse me while I retcon that. He was way too awesome to die! Also, that was totally unnecessary, STOP KILLING ALL THE BAD GUYS AND THE BLACK DUDES, SHOW.

+ Also, WTF. How is it NOT Arthur's fault that he killed that boy? The hell? He couldn't have just knocked him out or something? Jeez, show, I really thought you were going to deal with this, but you didn't. I'm aware I'm hypersensitive on the issue now post-vidding but seriously. >:(

+ Ooh, Arthur/Gwen is so epic, I am really sold on the way they did it in this episode. It was complicated and messy and adorkable and Arthur is an idiot but it's also powered by all the mythology. THE ONCE AND FUTURE QUEEN, INDEED. <3333333333 forever.

+ AGH GOD I HATE LEECHES SO FUCKING MUCH, THAT'S NOT FUNNY. D: (I had a traumatic experience hiking through the jungles of Vietnam.)

+ So, wow. Not a SINGLE line for Morgana. See, okay, this is exactly why I am ever so slightly annoyed at the minority of Arthur/Merlin monoshippers (because I do love most of you very much) who are fretting about Arthur/Gwen. I mean, Arthur & Merlin's relationship is so safe, so central to the show, and I totally heart it and would love it if the show went that way and everything, but we know it won't. Whereas, Gwen/Morgana? Could really easily just vanish the way it did here. Why didn't we get scenes where Gwen was trying and kind of failing to not tell Morgana 'OMG ARTHUR IS SLEEPING IN MY HOUSE HE IS UNBEARABLE YET STRANGELY ATTRACTIVE', or whatever? I am so afraid we'll get separate Gwen & Morgana episodes and they'll just drop their relationship at some point down the line because it's not seen as important to the series. And, well, :(.

+ But on the whole I really loved this - I LOVED Gwen, you may have noticed, and yeah, *this* is more or less how I'd like to see Arthur/Gwen handled. Also, Arthur/Gwen/Merlin could not have *been* more OT3 here - all their little smiles at each other! ♥

eta: ALSO HOLY SHIT THE PREVIEW A;DSLKAJDS;LKJASD;LK WANT. WANT NOW. OMG.
