WOOOO SPOILERS FROM PPL WHO WATCHED NEXT WEEKS EPISODE 12 DONT READ IF U DONT WANT IT SPOILER 4x12 spoilers from the Caerphilly advanced screening today: -There was a lot of action straight off the bat, with some really funny Merlin and Arthur scenes. -There was some nice Arthur and Merlin stuff. Definitely a few funny moments, although nothing outrageously shippy in my opinion. -I can comment on
Merlin and Arthur having nice scenes because it's obvious that they would be together for at least some parts of the episode. -There isn't any mention of the tension between Arthur and Merlin in 4x11. The plot isn't light but the general Merlin/Arthur interaction is more of what we're used to, with a bit of a twist. -Tthere was a lot of Bradley's body on display for pretty much the whole thing. -It was a good episode for the Arthur/Merlin relationship. In general, Merlin took a very central part to the plot and direction of the story, so it was good to see him leading the finale like that. -Perhaps some of the humour was a little over-used but all in all I found it a perfectly acceptable first part to the finale. -One of the things I was hoping for feels a lot less likely now that I've seen part one, but nothing's for certain. -No mention of Merlin getting new clothes was made. Arthur, on the other hand… -A lot happened. -Gwen's dress was pretty. -Geoffrey of Monmouth isn't featured in the episode.
