Merlin Scoop: Aithusa Is a [SPOILER]

Merlin  scoop straight from  Comic-Con. During the press room  for the series , I was talking with co-creator and executive producer  Julian Murphy who revealed that Aithusa (the adorable white dragon that Merlin summoned who saved Morgana at the end of last season) is in fact female! Even more exciting, co-creators and executive producer Johnny Capps expended by saying that Aithusa will become "Morgana’s confidant and protects her" in season 5, he continued to say that they have a "complex and meaningful relationship."

Video: Excalibur Revealed in the Merlin Season Finale

The battle to reclaim Camelot highlights Friday's season finale of Merlin (10/9c, Syfy). The episode features daring rescues, a rekindled romance and at least one valiant death. But perhaps the most significant moment is the introduction of an iconic element of the Camelot mythos — the legendary sword Excalibur. Following last week's loss of the castle to Morgana ( Katie McGrath ), Arthur ( Bradley James ) doubts his worthiness as the king of Camelot. To help get him back on track, Merlin ( Colin Morgan ) introduces him to the legend of Excalibur, explaining that only the true king of Camelot will have the strength to pull the fabled sword out of the stone where it was embedded years ago by Bruta, the first king. Check out this exclusive clip from Friday's season finale, "The Sword in the Stone, Part 2." //

Interview: 'Merlin' star Colin Morgan, Arthurian legend nerd

The Season 3 DVD of "Merlin" is in stores today. To celebrate, we broke out the good mead and our fanciest velvet doublet…just kidding. We actually had a chitchat with the BBC/_television/genres/syfy fantasy series’ extremely well-read star, Colin Morgan (the titular Merlin). He put his vacation on pause to talk Arthurian legend, "Merlin" fans and the two shirts that make up the wizard’s daily wardrobe. Merlin, modeling his go-to red shirt/blue scarf combo The Post: Is there a difference between a red shirt day and a blue shirt day for Merlin? Colin Morgan: [Laughs] You know what, I don’t think there is. But I applaud you for noticing the difference because even people on set sometimes don’t notice the difference when I change shirts. I think it’s literally dictated by the whim of the costume department, so maybe they have a reason. I’m going to ask them when we start the fifth season, I’d love to know. Maybe I’ll get darker shirts for the fifth season, [since the series] just gets darker and darker. The Post: After four seasons, are you an Arthurian legend expert yet or what? Morgan: I’ve certainly educated myself a lot more. When I initially read the scripts, I didn’t know a lot about the Arthurian legends or about the details or the in depth stories, but since doing the shows I’ve read a lot of the traditional stories – "Idylls of the King" by Tennyson, "Le Morte d’Arthur" by Malory, even "The Once and Future King" [by TH White]. I read a lot of independent researches into Merlin as a [real] man or a myth, too. Read More... //

This is the darkest it's become." The show has had dark episodes before, but they've always been balanced out with silly ones to break the tension. That's not really happening this year. The show has grown up, just like the characters.Morgan explained, "There's no, what I'd describe as funny episodes. There's definitely some stuff that's presented in a funny way, but there's actually quite a darkness to them. Particularly one... //
