I’m sorry this is not any kind of smile this is not the face you would make when you see your best friend die, this is the truest, strongest expression of love I have ever seen, the kind of smile you give to your lover when they tell you they love you back, or when they finally come home after after a fight, or the smile you give them when you can’t realise how you can have such a wonderful person by your side - and this is what this scene and this mutherfucking scene is about. Arthur comes back to life when Merlin calls him, and for a moment, there is just Arthur in his arms responding to his call, telling him that indeed he loves him back, that he is back home in his arms, and yeah, Merlin can’t realise how Arthur is such a wonderful person, how much he loves him, and how happy he is that Arthur loves him enough to brave death one last time - just for him. Forget the “thank you” and the “just hold me please”, just keep in mind the “I know now” and this moment when Arthur comes back to life to glance one last time at his manservant and that Merlin welcomes him back with this pure, heart breaking expression of love.
I fucking hate this show.
are you kidding me…

"Where television is fantastic, and is way ahead of film, is it doesn’t feel the need to polarize women so much. Male writers often wanna make a woman either the angel or the whore. Make her the witch or put her on a pedestal. They’re not mutually exclusive. You don’t have to be practical, politically savvy, and not be a good person. You can be a good human being and be shrewd. They’re not two separate things. We are as complex and contradictory as the men." - Natalie Dormer
