I love the fact that Merlin was allowed to cry. He didn’t just get the typical single little man tear rolling slowly off a melancholy face. This character was SO good because he cried and wept and sobbed. He was ugly when he cried. His face was all scrunched up in sorrow when he cried. This character was REAL when he cried. We need more boys that cry.
Since you mostly just mentioned Bellarke (there was a bit of raven which was nice i guess) i wondered if you only watch the show for bellarke or if you care for other characters as well.
