  1. Great episode! I found this podcast a few months ago and have been really enjoying it, I’m also rewatching some of the show (emphasis on some of) and it’s perfect escapism for these bleak times ?

    I absolutely love the Merthur tavern scene in this episode ? And here’s a fun fact: while I was watching that exact scene back when I first got into this show, my dad, who knew nothing about Merlin, walked into the room, looked at the screen for about five seconds and then turned to me and said with some suspicion, “Is this a gay show?” Yes, Dad. Yes it is.

    Thanks guys for all your hard work!

  2. My husband and I randomly started watching BBC Merlin last month, and I love it! We just started season five this week and I’m so sad it’s ending soon, so I went in search of a good podcast! So happy to be here. The last Dragonlord is one of my very favorite episodes so far, and I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about it.

  3. Also, let me know if you ever want the perspective of someone who is actually watching this show for the first time with zero knowledge of how it ends (aside from the Arthurian legends)

  4. This is one of my absolute favorite episodes. Probably this and Eye of the Phoenix are my go-to episodes when I watch Merlin.
    I do remember being upset that I thought they killed off Leon and I asked the showrunners on a radio program about it before season 3 and they said that Leon lived. Mainly because he was very popular, I think.
    Anyway, lovely to hear your thoughts on this episode. 🙂
