One thought on “Episode 64: Review 2×12: The Fires of Idirsholas

  1. There’s not much I can say. I’m not a fan at all of this episode, mainly because Merlin never really tries to find another way to stop the spell and I felt the writers were just pushing us in one direction, I was incredibly frustrated and kept yelling at the screen. The acting was amazing, though.
