Merlin – Series 3 Return – The Tears of Uther Pendragon (parts 1&2)

The Tears of Uther Pendragon Parts 1 and 2.

Excuse me while I look ruggedly handsome while pondering some point in the distance.

Merlin’s ears stick out. Merlin uses magic. Arthur thinks he saves the day and thinks he rocks. Merlin uses magic. Uther says magic is bad. Merlin uses magic. Morgana.

Nice to see Morgana back.
Nice to see Morgana being Morgana.

Merlin’s new haircut.
Arthur has reverted back to early Arthur – lost all that character development.
Little to no Gwen.
Someone still needs to give Merlin a sandwich.

Solid eps if not for the way Arthur is currently being portrayed. Some nice moments – especially the bit when X comes and Xs X. Can see this series being one of twisted alliances and manipulation.
