“Regardless of the cause, there is fun potential in Evil Gwen for future weeks. But this particular episode didn’t really work for me at all, I’m afraid. Hollow death scene, nonsensical twist at the end, not even many fun character moments along the way to distract me. We’ll try again next week.” Is the harsh but true verdict of Dork Adore about the 6th episode of Merlin season 5.
Although the episode was quite unique in it’s own way, it felt rushed and made no sense at all. Leaving the fans with questioning why? What is the use of killing of Sir Elyan in this way? Leaving his character to a pointless and little rewarded scene where he saves the now evil queen. Taking eventually ALL credit of the poor knight who wanted to save his sister.
