This Friday Merlin is captured by the deliciously evil Morgana. She mercilessly tortures Merlin and reprograms him to become an assassin. His assignment — kill Arthur.
The creators of the show say this episode will be dark, but funny. Is that possible? Well … if it is you better believe these guys are capable of doing it! They always come up with great twists and surprises that keep every episode fun and engaging.
“The darker we go, the funnier we go, too,” says co-creator and executive producer Johnny Capps. “That’s always been an important focus for us. No matter how dark the series gets, you never lose the emotional heart of it.”
In this week’s episode, “A Servant of Two Masters”, intensely dramatic scenes of Morgana torturing and abusing Merlin are balanced with images of a bumbling Merlin attempting to kill Arthur – by poison, crossbow and sword – that find their laughs in an honest, genuine way.
I don’t know about you — but I can’t wait to see this one!
