Hi. I’m Merlin.
Cara. You’re Arthur’s servant. That must be such an honour.
Oh, yeah. It is. Well, you know, someone’s got to keep the place running.
Because he’s your uncle, you will not see who he really is.
Merlin! I’ve had my heart broken enough already today. I don’t want to lose another friend.
i dont know. it just kinda happened. series 1 was like “aw shit look at him” and series 2 it was kinda like “aw shit why”. its more infatuation than anything else though.
Friendly reminder that it was Merlin who gave Arthur the blue cloak, and that even though it was only a temporary disguise Arthur kept it, anyway.

(I’m sorry, I might have not understood this request right, so I made it as Merlin defending Arthur to Arthur, to make him believe in himself)
Arthur: What the hell are you playing at?
Merlin: I’m proving that you’re their leader and their king.
Arthur: That sword is stuck fast in solid stone.
Merlin: And you’re going to pull it out.
Arthur: Merlin, it’s impossible.
Merlin: Arthur, you’re the true king of Camelot.
Arthur: Do you want me to look like a fool?
Merlin: No, I’m going to make you see that Tristan’s wrong. You aren’t just anyone. You are special. You and you alone can draw out that sword.
Arthur: You better be right about this.
Merlin: You have to believe, Arthur. You’re destined to be Albion’s greatest King. Nothing, not even this stone, can stand in your way. Have faith.
Tempest - Globe Theatre
Director: Jeremy Herrin Starring: TBA 180 mins
Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda and served by his spirit Ariel and his deformed slave Caliban. When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this perfidious brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach.
Imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s late great masterpiece of forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment.
Jeremy Herrin’s previous work for Shakespeare’s Globe includes 2011’s much loved Much Ado About Nothing.
