The trials and tribulations of a Prince of Camelot must be difficult. Arthur (Bradley James) is constantly forced to balance his own wishes against his duties as Prince and the wishes of his father King Uther Pendragon (Anthony Head). And in matters of the heart, where Gwen (Angel Coulby) is a servant in the castle and Arthur is nobility, the pair struggle with their feelings for each other more and more this season.
To be honest, I like that they’re testing the relationships this season. In Season 2, we started to see Gwen fall in love with Arthur and vice versa, with both knowing full well a union would never be accepted by the King. And when Lancelot (Santiago Cabrera) gets into the mix, Gwen’s heart is torn in two.
But this time it seems they’re testing Arthur’s resolve. More and more he’s been either going behind his father’s back or openly disagreeing with the King, which even as a Prince is bad news.
Here’s a clip from the episode airing Friday, February 18th at 10/9c on Syfy:
Here’s the synopsis:
In the next all-new episode of Merlin, Arthur is approached about his arranged engagement to a princess, Elena. It’s against his own wishes and he’s caught in deciding whether he should honor the royal tradition or if he should make the choice to not go through with it. Watch the clip and tune in on Friday at 10/9c on Syfy to see if Arthur will choose the right destiny of marrying his eventual Queen, or if the true feelings of his heart will prevail.
We’ve been enjoying the series and I’ll be curious to see how long it goes. Hopefully they can take it all the way to the death of Uther and the rise of Arthur as King of Camelot – but only the future will tell!
