» 'There’s still so much I want to say.'

CultBox did a Preemptive FIVE STAR review of S4E3 "The Wicked Day":

"Easily the best episode of the series so far, The Wicked Day sees an elaborate feast being held in honour of Prince Arthur’s birthday by the people of Camelot. However, some of the performers harbour a special gift for Arthur that probably wasn’t at the top of his wish list; assassination." -CultBox

"The Wicked Day is Merlin at its best, synthesising comedy and tragedy incredibly effectively. This is most evident in the ever-reliable performances given by the two male leads [Bradley James as Arthur & Colin Morgan as Merlin], who simultaneously produce their funniest and most emotionally truthful performances in the show’s entire four year run. The other principal cast member involved in the main story delivers an absolutely exquisite performance that’s sure to move a sizable proportion of the audience to tears." -CultBox  !!!!! This is the most exciting prospect in my mind; the whole point of Merlin is watching Arthur & Merlin transform into the characters from Arthurian Legend. I'm sure this will occur in a vastly different way than we expect & their relationship will end up as something very different from legend, but progress on this front is exciting, both for what we expect & how we'll be surprised! 

"The episode’s greatest success is the surprisingly simple emotional story at its core, which feels earned and genuine.  .  .  Morgana, a woman who was poisoned by the only person she trusted enough to confide in. More than any TV villain in recent memory, Morgana has a genuine, credible motive for hating the central characters.  .  .  The Wicked Day really is a phenomenal achievement. This is an episode you can’t miss." -CultBox
