I loved the first two episodes of this season's Merlin. So much heartbreak and banter and awesomness and love in one place. ♥

Unhingend!Uther; tired!overworked!selfsacrificing!crying!Arthur; brave!lovely!snarky!Merlin; Arthur&Merlin!banter; everything!awesomecake!Gwaine!, heartbroken!Gwen; whydoyoulooklikeBellatrix!Morgana; loyal!selfless!hopelesslyinlove!Lancelot; creepy!Uncle who's name I've forgotten ... oh my gosh. There's so much that I enjoyed about the season premiere that I can even forgive silly bouts of there'snologichere!writing and wejustinventedpushups!Gwen and scenes which screamed of wehavenoideawhatwe'redoing!cgi, and then there's the dragon ... I don't like the dragon if he's not making fun of Merlin. Which he didn't. It's a shame, really. The dragon having a laugh at Merlin's expense makes everything better by a thousand. But okay, they made up for that by buying new cameras and having ridiculously beautiful cinematography for a BBC kids!show. And to further squelch my complaints they gave me slightlyshirtless!Arthur and a heartbreaking Arthur!Uther!scene ... and then I promptly forgot about it and screamed at my screen when they killed Lancelot.


Is he coming back? Does anybody know?

In conclusion: I liked these two episodes very much, and because I loved the cinematography I felt inspired to do some fanart. Enjoy!

LANCELOT!!! I've literally just finished watching this episode and I'm hoping beyond belief that he comes back, he must do right? I'm mean, he's kind of a big deal.

I was told he's coming back on the basis that a scene of his from the S4 promo hasn't aired yet. I hope that is true because I LIKE HIM, okay, and all the amazing Arthur!Uther!stuff doesn't compensate for killing Lancelot. So.

(And I have to ask although I get the impression I already did that before, but how do I know you? o_O? [Also, this is in no way meant to be rude, but as my rl friends will agree, I have no memory for names whatsoever -- so I'm sorry if I should recognize your name.])

You have asked before, but that's ok, I don't think we solved it last time! I assume it was through Sherlock fandom or something, but I'm not sure. If it helps, my old username was vands88...? If it makes you uncomfortable, I can de-friend you, I totally understand.

No, no! I didn't mean to imply you should defriend me O_O I like making new friends. It's just that I wasn't even aware you HAD friended me (although I probably should have, with you already commenting on another post, but ... yeah, that's my memory for you), otherwise I'd have friended you back sooner. But it's done now.

So. Hello! Nice to meet you!

well, Merlin's all grown up now, he's giving Kilgharrah (or the Dragon as you call him) less opportunities to make fun of him.

Da steht EPISODE REACTION auf dem lj cut. Was hast du erwartet was ich da schreibe?

Naja, die Reaktionen, nicht was passiert..da steht ja nicht Episodenzusammenfassung. Oder Episodenschluß. Und ganz besonders steht da nicht das "Vorsicht Spoiler", auf das wir uns alle mal so ein bißchen geeinigt hatten.

Ich glaub es hackt. Wie stellt's du dir ne Episodenreaktion denn vor? Natürlich reagier ich da auf Dinge die passiert sind und wenn Lancelot nun mal stirbt dann schreib ich auch WTF?!? Lancelot ist tot?!?!? da hin.

Und wenn du so spoilerphob bist, dann wär's natürlich cleverer von dir überhaupt nicht erst auf den lj cut zu klicken um auch ja sicher zu gehen dass du vorher nix weißt. Deswegen HAB ich ja den cut gemacht um niemanden zu spoilern.

Und von so einer Vereinbarung weiß ich nix. So.

Merlin has beautiful cinematography? Whatever has the world come to? :P

Also, any female character looking like Bellatrix is a sure sign of said character being insane. Now that I think about it, the TARDIS/Idris looked suspiciously like Bellatrix. Well... that explains everything.

Wait, what? They killed Lancelot? Huh... Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought he was kind of a little bit important to the whole story.

Maybe the world is really ending in 2o12 when Merlin's got beautiful cinematography? I don't know ... just that I loved the images. So much surprise prettiness. *___*

And I'm a tad bit confused by the whole Lancelot situation because there really are as yet unaired scenes with him in one S4 promo. So I think he's coming back somehow ... apparently, the veil of death isn't so deathly anymore.
