I don't know how amusing this episode was meant to be, but I found a lot of it funny: old Merlin, Merlin's incompetent attempts at assassinating Arthur, Gwen and Gaius' efforts to thwart Merlin, and George. 

The knights had a few more lines, particularly Sir Leon, who's looking good. I can't believe that Arthur would suspect any of his knights, nor Gaius, which happens in the next episode by the looks of it. Arthur is made to look obtuse and stupid when he believes Agravaine so easily.

I'd have liked the magic confrontation between Emrys and Morgana to be more spectacular, like that between Merlin and Nimueh.

Colin Morgan is good as the stroppy Merlin. Colin and Bradley James display their talents for comedy. And of course there's Bradley's obligatory bare chest, taken a bit further this time.

Best surprise: Arthur hugged Merlin!

I loved this episode and was laughing quite a bit throughout it.

Incompetent assassin Merlin was hilarious, particularly when everyone around him was being so sensible/normal. Stroppy/jealous Merlin was also very funny. I'd like to see more of him.

I'd also like to see more of George. What a scene stealer!

Hopefully the seeds of doubt regarding Agravainne have been planted in Arthur's mind so he'll be a bit more cautious in trusting him in the future.

Muddy Merlin reminded me of a chimney sweep with all that stuff on his face and clothes. It was nice to finally see a hug between A/M. I hope there's more!

All in all, a very enjoyable episode.
