Merlin: It was here that I last saw my father. Arthur: You never talked about it. Merlin: There’s not much that I can say. I didn’t really know him that well, but… I was proud of him. I want him to be proud of me.
Remember that deleted scene where Arthur is gonna propose to Gwen, and he’s like “I’m feeling sick” and Merlin goes “Well that’s marriage for you” and then Arthur goes “I’ve made a bad decision” and Merlin goes “It’s natural to be nervous. I always get nervous when I make a decision. I start worrying about all the other options I DISCOUNTED”
Like, listen I know half the time I don’t understand why they deleted a scene, but I know why they deleted this one jfc
I am not only really mad that they scrapped the “This time you don’t have to wait until the next movie to know you beloved character is indeed still alive” scenes because of the audience. I also feel robbed. He was supposed to come in while Eggsy and Harry were crying about his death. And I feel robbed for not seeing my emotionally stinted fave asshole Harry ‘I FELT NOTHING BUT EMPTINESS AND REGRET BECAUSE I NEVER LOVED AND AM ALONE’ Hart sobbing and weeping about the loss of an important person in his life. We all know how well Colin Firth can act and I’d give anything to see these scenes.
