Merlin gets a non-arthur related storyline. A great love that lasts all of one episode. Merlin meets the girl of his dreams, who happens to be a cursed druid, finds out she murders people after midnight(hey everyone has their quirks), watches as she is mortally wounded by Arthur, somehow takes her to that one lake with excalibur, holds her as she dies, and then gives her a pretty funeral pyre. The next scene he is back to joking with Arthur. Awww young love.
Seriously, other than the little gags: half naked prince water fight, Merlin's flirtation with cross dressing, and a sensual noogie between friends, this episode seemed a little boring and pointless. I liked seeing all that emotion from Merlin, but it was bit hard to believe. He seemed as if he fell in love over night and then got over her tragic death just as quickly. I hope the next love interest gets more than one episode.
