“It was never about Arthur finding out [about Merlin’s magic]. And I think that if you watch it as a fan you’re always going: ‘Why don’t they do it? Why don’t they do it?’ because that’s the obvious thing you want to see. It’s like a ‘Will-they? Won’t-they?’ relationship in a TV show. Fans want to see a couple getting together, but sometimes that can damage a show.”—
Well, come on. They’ve got to have some aspect of “will-they/won’t-they”, since it’s kind of a foregone conclusion Arthur and Merlin dig each other. I mean, that’s not a will-they-won’t-they, that’s a oh-look-they’re-eyefucking-again.
