Does Merlin even remember that Arthur hugged him??
I quite noticed this the first time I’ve seen 4x06 but I just rewatched it to refresh my memories..
The thing is Arthur hugged Merlin while he was already under influence of the serpent and later when Gaius asked Normal!Merlin if he remembers anything, the last thing he knows is Morgana conjuring a snake, but nothing else.
In my logic that means Merlin can’t remember Arthur genuinely hugged him.. but I want to be wrong, somebody tell me that my conclusion is totally absurd and all kinds of wrong, pleeaase
