Now we know that this is the final series, we should savour all the little things that make
such fun to watch: King Arthur summoning his servant to help him with life’s challenges such as pulling on a sock, Morgana flouncing for Britain, and Gaius shooting one of those looks that would wither an oak.
It also gives the writers something to work towards — Merlin’s vision of the king’s murder by Mordred begins to look even more ominous. And it’s Mordred we should watch tonight, as he finds himself in a terrible dilemma.
It’s a huge tribute to Merlin that the show has held its nerve in a later slot, repelling the X Factor with a slash of Excalibur here and a blast of dragon-fire there.
Mordred becomes torn between loyalty and love, little realising the path he chooses will shape Camelot's destiny - and as the drums of war beat louder, Merlin feels trapped by the cruel circle of fate. Can he really do nothing to stop his dreams of Albion crumbling to dust? Fantasy drama, starring Colin Morgan and Alexander Vlahos.
