Find the stream or download options for this episode below the cut. It’s a long one again, which is why this was cut into two parts – again. 🙂

We’re posting part 1 (a look at canon!Arwen) today, and part 2 (fanon!Arwen) next Sunday. Nevertheless, this episode runs at roughly 1h 45min. We apologise for that length but we really didn’t want to split it into three parts :/.

  1. That’s wrong Arthur deserves it especially with the way he treats Merlin every episode of every season Arthur is such a douche but Merlin doesn’t do it in a mean way it’s just used for comedy where Arthur does it in such a bad place and uses his power against Merlin.

    1. Hi! Could you jog our memory and tell us, what part of the podcast this is in response to? We don’t remember everything we said in every episode, so it would be cool if you could tell us what we said that this is in response to.


  2. I think that the writers wanted Gwen to be blameless in the “cheating” while creating the conflict that would make her banished. It is not nice thing to do to the characters, but when you take into account that it’s still marketed as kids show, they might have wanted the audience to know that Gwen and Arthur were faithful to each other at all times even when the characters themselves didn’t know it.

    But I would definitely love it if somehow the bracelet would have been discovered, even if it happened a bit later to give Arthur some time to angst over her betrayal. Because they could have just made Merlin stumble over it during one of his numerous trips around dungeons. xD

    As for their first kiss, the shot was gorgeous and romantic and I thought the inner romantic in me would give at least a little “awww” even when I don’t ship it, but no “awww” happened. It just didn’t work for me at all. And Arthur’s expression right after that kiss… I can clearly imagine him thinking something like, “well, that was very anticlimactic”. 😀
