It's time for another Merlin preview, and enjoy them while they last, there won't be many more. If we get a preview for every remaining episode, two more after this, but we can't guarantee there won't be a BBC security lockdown around that all-important wizarding series finale.
So, make the most of this oncoming list, as conflicted knight-druid Mordred finally takes front and centre. No plot spoilers will feature, just vague hinting.
- Yes, last week's Next Time trailer gave away a lot about this episode, but there are still big surprises.
- Not much Gwen or Morgana this week - it's all about the duelling sausages of Merlin, Arthur and Mordred.
- For a change, muscly Sir Percival gets easily the best Knight moment of the episode. Go Percy go!
- The war dramatically declared at the end of the previous episode is mentioned, but looks like we'll have to wait another week for major skirmishes.
- A good episode, though. Fans should have a stuff drink in preperation. You'll want the final two parter badly after this.
- Fans of Colin Morgan looking concerned should keep a box of tissues particularly handy.
Merlin: The Drawing Of The Dark airs Saturday at 8:15PM on BBC One. More info and previous episodes on iPlayer at the BBC Official site.
