Pierrefonds Day 4  
I'm posting this early in case I don't get pics up in time - just a little report on the day. Today was one big fight scene outside the castle on the grass, which is always used for sparring and training fights, but there was also a set up shot for... the travelling acrobats arriving in their very pretty wagon.

The one big scene had all the knights, plus Merlin and Arthur, and is very sweet - Merlin is basically goading Arthur into fighting knight after knight, just to prove he can do it. "I'm the whole package!" Arthur declares. "Mmm," says Merlin, "Gawaine. Now he's the whole package." "Gawaine! Pah. Gawaine has the attention span of a new born lamb!" Arthur then proceeds to fight Gawaine to prove it to Merlin, and so it goes on :) It was a scene full of fan service, including Gawaine fighting shirtless for no apparent reason (except to distract Arthur perhaps!)

Finally Arthur fights Elyan with axes, the head of the axe flies off and Elyan keeps going, declaring, "Merlin can't save you now!" while Arthur's shouting "Merlin! A spare weapon! MERLIN!" and Merlin ignores him :)

The big spoiler now... Arthur is called the King in this scene. This is episode 6. Oooh.

*brb gosebumping forever*

Thank you for your report from the filming today, that sounds like a great scene with Merlin, the Knights AND THEIR KING! OMG, KIIIIIIING! *__*

And I only just realised: 'Merlin can't save you now' - DOES THAT MEAN THEY KNOW ABOUT MERLIN?????? :O

Well, it appears to be happening at the end of the second episode, as they're leading in with two huge eps again.

Oh, thanks goodness, thanks so much valderys. I didn't think I could keep that secret a moment longer. King Arthur. I'd promised not to say anything when I found out when I was at Raglan but now that it's out, it's a relief.

I'm sorry you were spoiled, hon, but I did spoiler warn and spoiler cut, and made it clear it was a biggie - I'm not sure what more I could have done?

I don't think so - because Tony was in on Monday for filming too, so that implies he's still alive when the acrobats are around. But it's not certain - he may have been doing pick up shots elsewhere that we couldn't see...

I know! It really was a slasher's dream - so much fanservice in this scene :)
gatepromise on May 6th, 2011 02:57 am (UTC)
Oh thank you so much for this. And frankly...I'm missing Anthony already.

I'm betting that Arthur is going to have to fight Uncle Agravaine for the "King" title, that it won't be so easy.

Ah...the knight fans--you're going to just love it. Sounds like Merlin's goading the knights and Arthur's rivalry.
Valderys: Merlin - Arthur's guardian angelvalderys on May 9th, 2011 10:25 am (UTC)
I think he is, but only in a friendly way - I think this is Merlin taking Arthur down a peg or two, while simultaneously reaffirming Arthur's martial superiority! Rather clever really, good old Merlin :) And yes, I bet he is going to have to fight Uncle Agravaine for the Kingship - I'm looking forward to it!
