It’s like you’re screaming and no one can hear. You almost feel ashamed that someone could be that important that without them you feel like nothing. You feel hopeless, like nothing can save you. And when it’s over and it’s gone you almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back so that you could have the good.
It kind of annoys me that, despite the entire concept of the series being to add a twist to the original legends, the justification for Arthur’s death is that it, “Happens in the legend.” Yes, well, in one telling of the legend Merlin was Arthur’s father and later died after being trapped inside a tree. But they left that out.
A lot of you guys have been asking if series 5 is the last series of YD and I haven’t answered because I didn’t know. I couldn’t find any hard evidence from those working on the show until now. Gerran Howell (Vlad) tweeted this, confirming that series 5 is the LAST ever series of YD.
The final episode in my opinion was the right way to end the show. It was emotional and heartbreaking and also gave a lot of us hope for another series in the distant future (however harassing them about making another series is wrong.) Despite this I can’t help wonder about how Gaius lived out his last days and how Gwen’s ruling as queen and the freedom to use magic affected him. Also how Merlin reacted when he died. Am I the only one?
