↳ ‘The Secret Sharer’ 46/65
I love this scene, especially when you watch it in context. This is just after Merlin confronted Arthur about Agravaine lying. The scene where Merlin was clearly upset and angry right in front of Arthur due to the disappearance of Gauis. Arthur actually said that he had already lost one friend today and not to make him lose another.
As far as Arthur was concerned Merlin was upset and angry with him that night and then in the morning he wasn’t there. Look at how panicked Arthur is above and think about how panicked he would of been earlier in the morning when he realised Merlin was gone. I mean he hasn’t even bothered to put shoes on or get dressed. He has straight away gone everywhere, including outside, looking for Merlin.
I don’t think this is Arthur being annoyed with Merlin. I think this is him covering up his panicking due to the fact he thinks the only friend he has left and the one that he relied on to always be there has left him.
