This started out as some capslocking and ended with some less capslocked commentary.
SO IN LOVE. SO IN LOVE.
TEARS, TEARS. ALL THE AWARDS FOR COLIN.
ARTHUR IS A TOOL, BUT I DO LOVE HIM. AND THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR GIVING US THIS.
IT'S SO GREAT HAVING A GWEN WITH AGENCY AND PERSONALITY AGAIN.
SQUEAK, SQUEAK, EEEE, OH MY GOSH, OH, OH MY HEART, OOOOOOHHHHH.
AT THIS POINT, IT'S KIND OF A DISSERVICE THEY DON'T KISS. I MEAN, SERIOUSLY. SERIOUSLY.
OKAY, SO, THIS SPRAWLING IS ABSOLUTELY SHAMELESS.
JUST. HOLD. ME.
Arthur at this point is like "I'm trying to fucking die, what is with the weird shouting? Jesus fuck, Merlin, give it a bloody rest."
Poor Bradley, having to be a ragdoll.
Oh. I thought they might do this. Give me hope and then CRUELLY TEAR IT AWAY. I'm inclined to disregard the Dragon. I guess --- I guess I got all of this first. <33333
Colin's crying really is amazing. It makes me cry too. I think I'd be crying anyway. Ow, my heart.
My heart is actually breaking right now. Fucking breaking.
Modern-day hahahahahahhahahaha. Only made better with a shot of Arthur, tbh.
There's been a metric fuck tonne wrong with this show, and this series in particular, but this episode was an example of when it gets things (mostly) right. (I am still of the opinion that they've changed so much of the legend why not just have Arthur live?) And since Merlin/Arthur's one of my OTPs (of which I have exactly three across my many fandoms), I loved it for all of the Merlin/Arthuriness, I really fucking did.
