Welcome to a blog for confessions about the BBC show Merlin. We are aware that there already is a confessions blog for Merlin, but we decided that we wanted to have a go at making one of our own.

THIS BLOG IS ON HIATUS.
I find it strange that people condemn Gwen for sentencing Sefa to death when she (Gwen) admits that she gave that sentence merely to attract Ruadan to Camelot. Did everyone miss that part of Arthur’s Bane Part Two?
I can’t wait for there to be Gwen/Mithian scenes this series. If they make them competitors or ‘frenemies’ then I will be very disappointed, as this seems to be the media’s default for female relationships - fighting over a man. We all know that just isn’t the case in real life and that Gwen and Mithian would make wonderful allies.
There is a massive difference between saying that Gwen saying ‘respect cannot be earned with blood’ was highly hypocritical or else ignorant to the extreme, and saying that her sentencing Sefa to death (which she didn’t carry out) was the wrong decision. People like me are upset at Gwen for that line, not for what she did. It also certainly doesn’t mean that we hate Gwen. Though for me it does mean that I am disappointed in her.
I think both Gwen and Morgana are amazing women who stand up for what they believe. However, I sympathize with Morgana more since she’s been betrayed by everyone she loves and she doesn’t deserve that.
I will always love Gwen, but after she sentenced Sefa to death, I couldn’t help but think about the times when Uther had sentenced Gwen to death for her father and Arthur. I know her maid had to be punished, but death?
