Just finished watching Merlin season 2 finale - The Last Dragonlord. Downloaded it from Youtube coz it's not yet been aired here in Malaysia. But you can watch the episodes here every Sunday night at 9:00pm on TV3, just started few weeks ago. Have to wait quite long for the season finale though.
Previously in episode 12 - The Fires of Idirsholas, Merlin had to free the Great Dragon, Kilgara, due to his oath. And now, driven by its rage, Kilgara attacks Camelot. Arthur and his men are loosing the battle and even Merlin can't defeat him. The only man who can defeat him is the Dragonlord but Uther had them all slaughtered many years ago. Gaius reveals the truth that there might be one of them still alive and hiding. Arthur wants to seek for the Dragonlord and ask for his help, but Uther refuses. Arthur disobeys him.
Right before Merlin and Arthur head out for the quest, Gaius reveals another secret to Merlin. The Dragonlord, Balinor is not only Camelot's last hope, but is his father. Can't bear to watch Merlin's reaction when he finds out that his father is still alive, not dead like what he's been told for years.
When they finally found Balinor, Merlin had a chance to tell him that he is his son. But poor Merlin... he could only spent a night with his father when finally his father dies protecting him. It's so dramatic! Colin plays his character very well. Almost had me in tears. And with his father dies, that leaves Merlin to be the last Dragonlord. And now, only he can defeat Kilgara.
It's so excruciating to finally found his father but only to loose him forever. Poor Merlin.... :(
but on second thought, if his father lives, then he won't be needing Gaius anymore... and that couldn't happen coz this show needs Gaius...
This episode is the best ever! You can see the true Merlin. He finally takes control. So good to see him like that. Most of time, Arthur would treat him like an idiot. Can't wait to watch season 3. It's said that season 3 would be aired Sept 2010. Wow! Can't wait that long! Hope it will be sooner ;)
