Shownotes:
- We catch you up on all the latest Merlin news you may have missed! From soundtrack release dates to upcoming episode synopses– we’ve got it all!

- We recap one of the scariest Merlin episodes to date– “The Dark Tower”!
- The hosts discuss their favorite moments in the episode and give their reactions to the appearance of the illusive Queen Mab
- Pam reveals her new Merlin OTP
- Why was the illusion of Merlin in the Dark Tower the only one who looked like he was legitimately going to attack Gwen while the illusions of Arthur and Elyan simply laughed at her?
- It’s easy to assume the enchanted sword was meant to kill Arthur but could the enchanted sword always have been meant for Elyan?
- Now that we know Gwen is Morgana’s ‘puppet queen’, the hosts theorize on how Morgana’s control over Gwen could be working– do we think it’s a spell or has the Queen of Camelot been brainwashed?

    Love this podcast! It’s awesome to have people who like the show and talk about Merlin! :) First of all, this episode was so intense, creepy and sad! Everything about this episode had me questioning “What’s gonna happen next?” But anyway, my question is do you guys think that Merlin should have a love interest by the end of the show or would it distract Merlin from protecting Arthur and becoming a real advisor to him? And just a thought, maybe Gwendolyn, who was in the original stories, Merlin’s wife, could be introduced somehow?
