There’s a scene when Arthur asks him what he would do and all these issues are fermenting in Merlin’s face; it is breathless stuff and you believe it because Colin Morgan believes it. You do begin to ponder why Arthur, who is clearly far more intelligent than the season one version, doesn’t put two and two together but this simmering situation is underpinning the season in a rewarding way. The Disir are based on mythical icons and command that sort of authority though the actresses don’t get their faces seen. If you want to sum up the season so far, it comes when Gaius basically asks Merlin what became of the clumsy would be wizard we were introduced to in season one. Merlin looks at him and says, plainly, “He grew up.”
