I love how mouthy Merlin is to Arthur. Even though Arthur is the prince and could have merlin punished for his witty quips, Arthur just takes it because he knows that merlin is really his closest friend.
I love this because you think that Arthur is saying something very deep and Merlin too, but really it just ends up funny. But, considering the end of Merlin, it really isn't that funny at all. same as other qoute about merlin taking his place
January, the day that Merthur officially became canon but it’s always been canon! Well I think you need both sides of it. And to be fair, we did, very genuinely, think of the episode as a love story between two men.
