Merlin: A Servant of Two Masters  
Thoughts! I has them.

- I am soooo sick of Morgana and Aggravaine. Seriously, either get competent, or give up.
- I know that within the structure of a television show, you have to subscribe to some conceits, but why the hell does Morgana not just waltz into Camelot and kill Arthur herself? Why doesn't Aggravaine stab him in his sleep? Anyone, and I do mean anyone, can walk into Camelot without any effort. I don't know why they even bother posting guards. I don't want Arthur to die, obviously. I just want some better villains.
- Having said that, I actually did enjoy Merlin being out of it for this episode. Mostly because he got to say all the things to everyone that I've always wanted him to say. Colin's comedic timing really is wonderful and I enjoy it when the writers put it to good use.
- I also like seeing Sir Leon having more to do lately.
- I think this is one of the first times we get to see Gwen in on the comedic action, too. Angel Coulby did a great job.
- I did not know go'uld symbiotes were available in medieval England. You learn something new everyday.

*giggles madly over the go'uld idea*

I liked this episode a LOT even if it made little sense, plotwise.

Merlin's wound made NO SENSE. He took a mace to the chest, surely there would be blood and broken/bruised collar bone and things like that?

HOWEVER- wound resulted in super wonderful scenes between him and Arthur where Arthur showed just how much he cared for Merlin and what he was willing to do for Merlin and the broken look on his face when the rock slide happened separating him from Merlin? O.o poor boy (which also led to a great look on Gwaine's face when the knights come across Arthur sans Merlin and then again the interaction between Gaius and Arthur when they return to Camelot)

I loved the Leon and Merlin scene in the armory and then with Gwen and Gauis in the hall. You're right- it was nice to see him doing so much.

Colin looked like he was having a BALL doing all those 'under possession' scenes and getting to act different. And also as Dragoon, although the makeup required for that must be a pain.

The whole Aggravine issue is just annoying- how he is able to constantly leave and return like that without anyone noticing or thinking it odd is just ridiculous. *sigh*
