ARTHUR COULD NOT PHYSICALLY GET HIMSELF TO SEND HIS FATHER BACK TO THE SPIRIT WORLD UNTIL HE SAW MERLIN AT THE OTHER END OF UTHER’S SWORD I AM CRY
THANK YOU FOR REMINDING ME
#seriously fck all the feels about this scene: #till that moment arthur wanted to talk to him#wanted his father to understand #still wanted to make uther proud #and then its like seeing him trying kill merlin is what finally makes him understand #that while he’ll always love uther as his father #he will no longer try to live up to uther’s ‘precious’ legacy #seeing uther trying to kill his merlin is the ultimate prove that his father is wrong about so many things #and saving merlin this time - choosing him over his own father #is arthur cutting the last strings to the past for a future with merlin #now its their turn #i cant anymore (brolinskeep)
Merlin 5.03 - The Death Song of Uther Pendragon
The One Where Merlin and Arthur Tried to Find the Perfect Place to Poetry But Kept Getting Cockblocked
Leon to the Knights: So, guys, the new code word is “poetry.”
Leon on the follwong day: … and “horseplay”.
Arthur and Merlin are still providing the only convincing romantic chemistry in the show. “Is there anything you’re capable of doing?” chides the young king. “Putting up with you” his servant replies sarkily. So absorbed are the pair in this flirtatious interaction that it takes a polite cough from Gwen to break the spell. Merlin is still employing a questionable judgement on when to use his secret powers; magically juggling eggs to provide after-dinner entertainment early on, but then happily spending a night tightly trapped in a net with Arthur instead of breaking free.
