Remembering the Wonder of it All
The Moment of Truth … gives us insight into several relationships. Merlin’s devoted and loving relationship with his mother, Hunith. There is the high regard in which he is held by Gwen and Morgana. And at last, we see Arthur’s unspoken but strong, protective feelings for his servant. There are several important moments between them, including one in which Merlin is overcome by feelings to confide his secret to Arthur. We are also introduced to Arthur’s oratorical skills, a portent of his ability to move and inspire people to act … a glimpse into a future king. And, Merlin’s first devastating loss … the death of his childhood friend, William.
Thus ends Season I. We are enchanted.
