I had read somewhere that there might be a Dark Merlin in S5. Has anyone else heard of this and know this as fact?
If so, that would be very interesting...
1. Dark Merlin - so we get to see Colin channel his darker side (you just know he wants to)!
2. Like ShelterWolf mentioned - we need some medieval minstrels around (Brave Sir Robin comes to mind)!
3. Gwaine to shave his beard and cut his hair short.
4. Defensive spells - Merlin has to quest to find a book of defensive spells that form a protective shield around the body so that when he gets thrown backwards by Morgana/Mordred, Merlin can stop midair or bounce harmlessly off the wall! Ice spells vs fire spells! etc.
If there is a Dark Merlin that would be nice. On one of the Brit Boards, that subject was brought up. If that does happen then maybe the Merlin people really DO read the suggestions the viewers send in.
BTW, I dug this up. Sometimes these guys ask your questions during another interview: http://www.scifinow....n-5-and-beyond/ or they'll send you a message when there's a interview, sort of what happened here on cult box with this fan http://fy-katiemcgra...morgana-has-any and Katie McGrath: http://www.cultbox.c...ies-5-interview
The show does whatever the producers and writers want and it seems these guys are using the fans to gauge what the show should be about.
