Merlin 2x07

I have some squee, but also am quite hacked off.

The Good:

Gwen was amazing! Oh my goodness, I am so glad she got to be part of Merlin's investigation and actually be the one to come up with some parts of the solution and her speech to Arthur was wonderful and I am so glad that her role in the story was non-romantic. Also, SHE MENTIONED TOM AND PARTLY BLAMED ARTHUR FOR IT, which maybe is not the kind of thing I should be capslocky happy about BUT I AM.

The Bad:

I can't believe Morgana was so criminally underused AGAIN. What the hell. Will she ever, ever get to do anything other than looked scared ever again? WHY did we not get a single scene with her and Gwen aside from that snippet at the beginning - oh look, they're gazing soulfully out of a window again, how daring; WHY did we not get a single scene of her interrogation; WHY do the writers seemingly not care about her character really at all week to week? *rends hair*

Also, potentially unpopular opinion time, I do not really have the vocabulary to express how much I HATE the staggering amounts of extra screentime Uther and Gaius are getting this season. Partly because I don't actually like either character that much owing to their incredibly questionable actions - in different ways - that the show handwaves all the time, and partly because, yes, show, what we really need is more focus on the white guys.

*sigh* I miss Morgana being kickass/her POV being given any weight at all and I miss Gwen and Morgana getting to have scenes together/be in the same episodes. Stop being fail, show! :(
