Summary: With Arthur dead, Camelot’s destiny has soured–if it was ever any good to begin with. Gwen is fed up with grief and mediocrity and takes matters into her own hands, returning to the start to make a better Camelot or break history trying. Knighthood, rekindling her first love, and Merlin’s silly almanac are all just byproducts.
Recommendation: This was so WONDERFUL! Gwen and Merlin being bros and getting things FIXED! Uh, this was so good I got far less sleep than I should have but it was totally worth it. I love all of the relationships, I love all of the changes, I want to show to go back and do THIS. Gwen being badass, and so loveable, Merlin being honest, Morgana getting actual love and support, all the good things. And the final showdown, perfection.
