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...

Wishlist

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.

You might just get a darker series and maybe a Dark Merlin. I found this : http://cultfix.co.uk...hints-16792.htm

I'd like to know whether or not Season 5 will be the last.

Capps and Murphy revamped Season 4 with a Season 6 in mind:seriable.com/merlin-producers-plan-merllin­-se­rie­s-6 http://www.digitalsp...twitter-qa.html http://cultfix.co.uk...sible-15091.htm and http://scifiandtvtal...hnny-capps.html .

But, the actors want to move on:

Still, I'm a Bart Simpson fan who said: "If I ever had a hit show, I'd run it into the ground." (Simpsons S02E21)

I was thinking about this, if Season 5 is the last then the writers can either 1) come around full circle, that is tie everything up or 2) leave a lot dangling. I was wondering what others thought because to do the full circle bit, that would mean a Morgana redemptive arc, an Uther redemptive arc, and a Gwen redemptive arc.

And, things I'd like explained:

1) the Morgana-Morgause Paradox: Gorlois is not the biological father of either Morgana or Morgause according to events in S01-S03. She starts as the daughter of Gorlois and Vivienne. In S02, Morgause is introduced as the step sister meaning she shares one common parent with Morgana (either Gorlois or Vivienne). But, in S03, Morgana's found to be the daughter of Uther but still the step sister of Morgause. So, Morgana and Morgause have the same mother but different fathers. Uther cannot be Morgause's father since only Morgana has legitimate claim to the throne of Camelot. That means that Morgause and Morgana still have the same mother but Gorlois is not the father of Morgause.

2) Merlin trying to convince Arthur that magic can be a force for good especially if the magic bracelet making Gwen fall in love with Lancelot is revealed because Arthur could see that magic nearly ruined his life with Gwen and be convinced that magic is pure evil.

I'm adding a Ben Browder appearance to the wish list. Bcs he was in the UK filming Doctor Who, so what the heck, give him a trip to France!

The producers have been backing of that "five year" thing a bit lately. When you originally pitch a show. you have to give an idea of how long you think the show could go. They had originally said five years because they thought they'd be lucky to get five years. Most shows don't go that long. But with season 4 being such a success and the show seeming to hit a new stride. So if destiny and the BBC allows, they're willing to go past Season 5

The Eoin Macken interview is interesting, too. So, he does social media the fans like he said he did and it was probably him on Twitter about that fanfic stuff. That means he, Katie and Angel probably did send those messages to those boards, then. Good to know but it would be interesting to see if the BBC funds the show for another year or more if they'll change their minds particularly Angel who said she's prepped that Season 5 was the end. But, some of the other boards where people from the show drop in ... It makes me wonder if the Merlin people are also reading this board, too.

So based on this thread we hope to see in Season 5:

I thought after the first episode we could check some things off the Season 5 wish list. And, there is an interview with Julian Jones at Den of Geek, and listening to that file, he makes it clear that he gets feedback about the story from some unknown forums.
