I've never really done proper reaction post before BUT MY FACE WAS GOING MENTAL THROUGHOUT THAT ENTIRE EPISODE OKAY. I can barely remember what happened at the start now (I watched the first half yesterday) but then Colin was in a dress and nothing even mattered anymore. I'm am SO looking forward to the bloopers (because come on now--no way is there not going to be bloopers).

I was kinda upset that they didn't keep up the Mordred/Leon thing that I was sorta hoping was gonna happen, because how adorable would it be for the knight who's been there the longest to be looking after the new kid? IDK, I just thought that would be unbearably cute. Not that I wasn't happy with the copious amounts of angsty Merlin/Mordred, camp!Merlin, bitchy!Merlin AND annoyed!Merlin. It was so perf.

I just saw this on Tumblr as well, and it kind of made my life: 



So yeah. This episode basically thrilled me, even though I'm sure if I looked closely I'd find rather a lot not to like about it (actually maybe not SO close, seeing as I was sad to see Morgana/Gwen end *sigh*). My girlfriend told me decidedly that it's her favourite episode ever, and I can totes see why, although I really don't think I'll love any episodes from the later series as much as everything from S1 and 2. God they were just such babies then. 

The best thing though, after Dolma (NOTHING beats Dolma, ever) has gotta be how BAMF Mordred was when facing Morgana. I was sort of just sitting here squealing/clapping. I just, ugh, we've already got the 'when will he bloody well reveal' angst, and now we've got the 'is Mordred evil, ugh idec, when will Merlin give him a chance' angst and THERE'S ONLY 4 EPISODES LEFT AND I WANT CLOSURE.

'Specially as I read an interview thing yesterday where they asked Colin 'do you think they'll be making a film' and he was straightaway 'no nope god no no'. Well, at lease he seems pretty certain that the old cast won't be involved. I can't decide whether I'm glad or not. 

On the one hand, thank bejebus because Colin, Bradley, Angel and Katie all need to move onto bigger and *cough* better things. They just DESERVE it, especially Colin imo. On the other, Merlin is just my favourite thing ever, despite the character arc issues and the plot issues and the reveal issues and all the issue issues. I still love it, and I think it's brilliant, and the last episode is totally going to ruin my Christmas Eve, thank you very much BBC. 

I wonder if I'll be able to find any fanfic with Dolma in it...oh oh oh, also, you should look at this because I did and I just can't.

So many feels from one ep, right? It was over the top and I just loved it. So much Mordred. So much camp!Merlin. God, Colin is a genius. I love that they give him such a range.

I am ready for the actors to move on to bigger/better/new projects too. TPTB don't realize that we watch because the actors are AWESOME and we've been in love with Colin since forever (and now Alex:)).

Yeah. This show has really showcased Colin. Alex was talking about it was much more interesting to be a villain than a hero somewhere. I'm just sad they waited until the very last season to bring him on because I adore him, but you knew that.

More camp is never a bad thing, in my opinion:)

I think Angel got the worst deal. She's fantastic, but you wouldn't know it by the show.

It's been delightful bouncing around with you today! I can't wait to see what Colin goes on to do. I expect it will be quite different. I'm also totally interested in what the rest of the cast does too. Bradley, Angel, Katie, Alex.

Good luck on the exam! Sleep well.

I was enjoying Morgana/Gwen while it lasted too! They were so precious in season 1, and there just isn't enough female/female screentime on the show these days.

BAMF Mordred

Yesssss!

I know Colin deserves bigger, better things... BUT I JUST WANT MERLIN FOREVER. *cries*
