Episode #4

~Fight-or-Flight~

Lady Isabella, being asked by Merlin to be a companion to Gaius on a trip to a wounded community, with Percival escorts Gaius through the not-so-spooky, spooky forest. The group stumbles upon a dangerous predicament, soon finding the trouble comes from nothing else: sorcery. Panic hits Lady Isabella as she flees for her life, nearly revealing too much in the process to her unsuspecting allies.

The Real Sir Elyan:

Did you know?

In Arthurian legend, Elyan was the son of Sir Bors, a knight of the Round Table. Two varying names he had was Helyan le Blanc, or Elyan the White. To be called “white” was like a nickname to describe a pale skinned or white haired person. Obviously, the Sir Elyan from BBC Merlin is a new and hearty twist on legend, played by the excellent Adetomiwa (aka Tomiwa) Edun, which was AWESOME.

Sir Bors, Elyan’s father in legend, was the cousin of Lancelot, and Sir Elyan might have even grown up to become the Emperor of Constantinople.

In other news, some legends say Mordred, Gwaine, and Agravaine were all sons of Morgause… Imagine how strange that would be for the TV show!

Long Live the King!

In that moment, we witnessed the making of a king, one who would stand the test of time…

Geoffrey of Monmouth: Will you solemnly promise and swear to govern the peoples of Camelot according to their respective laws and customs?

Arthur: I solemnly swear so to do.

Geoffrey: Will you to your power, for as law and justice in mercy, be executed in all your judgments?

Arthur: I will.

Geoffrey: Then by the sacred law vested in me, I crown you Arthur, King of Camelot.

Geoffrey: Long live the King!

Audience: Long live the King! Long live the King! (continues to repeat)

I will never forget that moment, at least not as long as I choose to keep remembering, because to me it’s the moment fiction created a crowned king, and I, too, was a citizen of Camelot, feeling all the love, the joy, the angst, and the dread of what he might face as ruler.
