It’s time for crazy theories! Other people have probably already speculated this
but I was bored and needed to write something. I haven’t been to Tumblr in a while.
So Liam Garrigan was cast as King Arthur. It cannot be a coincidence that he and Colin O’Donoghue look so much alike. Now, I’m not sure how Arthur and Killian could be related (father and son? Siblings? Cousins? Aliens???). But I’m starting to believe that Killian actually has royal blood. My guess is that he’s a
runaway prince. And he comes from Camelot. Why?
1. His reaction to Merlin indicates that he knows something the others don’t.
2. He didn’t seem to have any problems acting as a prince in season 3 finale. He knew how to court dance for example. (Of course this could be explained in many other ways too but let me have my dreams!)
3. When King Midas asked for Killian’s name in the same episode, perhaps Killian was so baffled because it reminded him of old times. Maybe he was about to say his real name? Maybe he was afraid that he would reveal his true identity (even though already 200 years have passed at that point)?
Well yes, I know I’m probably wrong. Maybe I should start writing fanfiction…
