Ahhh I can't believe it's taken me so long to find this thread!! Love love love Merlin
Last episode was so good! I love how Gwaine just keeps popping back ^^ Can't wait till this saturday to see what happens...
The way that Morgana manages to change her skin-tone / eye make-up / lip colour / cheek bone emphasis between betraying Uthur, pissing off merlin and keeping in touch with her sister is truly remarkable. Apart from that Merlin is the ultimate guilty pleasure!

I read an interview on digital spy with the producer saying that it was due to budget cuts rather unpopularity. More upsetting is the fact that he said that it would be shown until early 2012
I think greenpeas meant it wouldn't be shown until early 2012 as Dr Who is being split into the two parts next year. One in Spring and the other in Autmn. Therefore there won't be the space to put Merlin in next year during Late Summer/ Early Autumn into December.
What a fantastic end to the series, some really powerful stuff on our screens tonight. I loved the Morgana/Uther scene in the cells; you can completely tell that Uther's never going to be the same again after this. Losing Morgana shook him to the core, now the world as he knew it has collapsed around him. ASH was totally on the money tonight.
Absolutely loved the bromance moments, Bradley and Colin are just too adorable for their own good. I wish we'd had a few more scenes like the ones we saw tonight spread across the series- it's clearly in these times of need Arthur realises how truly important Merlin is to him. I have to say though, my favourite scene was probably the one with Lancelot and Merlin, "You're the one who should be knighted"- this whole episode seemed like a gateway to a "new beginning" and that scene (and the final scene of Arthur/Merlin on the steps) seemed to encapsulate that completely- it feels like it's been acknowledged that things have changed and will be changing, and one day the secrecy will burn away.
Mind's a bit of a blur, I'm sure I'll have more to comment on once I've let it settle a bit/watched again.
