THANK YOU SO MUCH! <33
As I said in earlier posts this blog started just as a personal blog, I just wanted a place to left my ‘favorites quotes’ from the show and now this!
Thanks for all the support through this almost 2 years and don’t forget the ask box is always open for your suggestions.
Now, the reveal scene itself is everything you could want. Merlin’s tearful confession and Arthur’s reaction - ranging from incredulity, to shock, to disbelief at his own ignorance, to anger at his friend - are perfectly judged.
Our one niggle is this - why does Merlin confess now? He’s had ample chance to do it many times throughout the course of this show’s run - there have been times when revealing the truth would’ve saved his own life or the lives of others, and yet he picks this particular moment to tell Arthur all.
Yes, they’re in a tight spot and all seems lost, but isn’t that always the case on this show? You’re left with the feeling that the reveal happens simply because this is the final episode.
(Laughs) That was a lot of fun. I mean, I’d played old Merlin before – as an old guy - so when I read in the script that I was going to be playing an old woman, it was definitely a bit of a challenge. But it was very exciting getting to get the chance to play essentially three different characters in one episode. It was a lot of fun.
