My favorite scene was when Lancelot looked back at Merlin, a gentle wind blowing and with a wistful smile; arms outstretched, slowly walks into the tear between the worlds... I can't even deal with it. What I just saw was incredible, supernatural, fantastical, terrible, & wonderful all at the same time. When Merlin doused the embers with his high-alcohol content Medieval moonshine, creating repelling flames & ran from the Daraka with Lancelot, while yelling a spell to call upon the Dragon as they sprinted through the woods.. then halting upon the magnificent sight of Kilgara himself in a field (the 1st meeting of Dragon & Lancelot), I just couldn't believe it. Lancelot was scared and was prepared to defend himself against the beast until Merlin said it was Okay and the Dragon asked who his friend was.
The role of Guinevere in this episode was the most surprising to me, up until this episode, she has not had such an effecting role in the course of things; t was astonishing to say the least. I wasn't expecting the performance we got from her. She is really an amazing talent which I am surprised has not been shown off until this part of the story. Wow!
The beautiful scene with Lancelot and the ethereal beings in the pond was also a plus & Merlin's jaunty recovery afterward was amusing. The Wilddeoren scene was also hilarious & Gwaine's antics were another plus. Can't say enough about this episode & can't wait for the next one. I know that director Alice Troughton will direct also direct episodes 5, 12, & 13 in this series which I am most looking forward to.
P.S. fav bit of acting = Adetomiwa Edun aka. Sir Elyan's short monologue to Arthur. "Look around Arthur, we would fight a thousand armies with our bare hands for you. You are never alone; we stand together."
