Bonus: Merlin looking like an adorable kitten.
I know this is the end, and I know this is in a way goodbye, and in a way, from us, it’s a massive thank you for being there on the journey with us and coming along, and enjoying the ride. Because it’s been a lot of fun. - Colin Morgan (x)
#ugh this was so sad #just like #how he said ‘don’t have one’ #all resigned #and tired #he seems so lonely #because like in season 4 when arthur became king#everything falls into place #except for him #arthur is king #gwen is queen #the knights of the round table are a thing #and merlin’s still just merlin #hiding who he is every day because the only thing he has left really #besides gaius as a father-figure #is arthur #that’s literally all he has #and he just seems so tired because#he’s consistently torn between wanting to tell arthur but that little part of him that’s way deep inside his mind #is whispering to him #don’t tell him he might hate you#you’d just be another betrayal of his trust on the long list #you can’t do that to him#so he just keeps on going #i’m just waiting for the day when he’s had enough and we see all these years of being unappreciated come to a close #because it’s going to be devastating
