I can't believe I've never made a picspam before...  
Time to remedy that me thinks with a small celebration of possibly my favourite scene in all of the second series of Merlin.

I love how, at last, someone is really looking out for Morgana. She'd spent the season so isolated and so at risk. When Morgause feels her distress and furiously blasts her way through the door to come to the rescue, I could have cheered. I love the way Emilia plays this scene, that she mixes anger and outrage (how dare Merlin hurt Morgana and speak to her in that way), with genuine upset and fear.

It's very telling that she gives up all her dreams and plans to save Morgana. She has Camelot on its knees and Uther at her mercy, she easily just go over and kill him. But Morgana means much more to her, way beyond a tool to be used in her war. It's very warming to know Morgana has that now, and I'd love to see how their relationship developed over the year she spent with Morgause. Is it any wonder Morgana wants to support and aid her cause?

I kind of liked that Morgause dismissed Merlin as just a servant and she's got that slight noble blood snobbery. It'll be interesting if and when she finds out what he truly is.

gorgeous picspam! I felt the same way when I watched this scene. Really, it's no surprise that Morgana went over to the dark side after being virtually ignored by everyone in series 2... I really want to see how her relationship with Morgause has changed...

They really did give her no reason to stay in Camelot and, unlike everyone else on both sides, Morgause isn't just using her. I hope they stay a team of epic for a long time.

YES. A THOUSAND TIMES, YES. Lovely picspam - this might just have been my favourite moment from season two ♥

It was definitely my favourite moment. After all the Morgana related disappointment and sadness, I could have cheered to see that someone truly cared for her.

Emilia is incredible in this scene. Running the gamit of emotions in 0.2 seconds. BRILLIANT! Go from enraged to OMG NOOOOOOES after 'But she'll die with me.'

I cannot wait to see season 3 and see more Morgana and Morgause awesomeness. I just hope we get a good bit of Morgause and that it was all shot before Emilia's bump started to show.

Emilia is brilliant as Morgause in general. She'd better be around for a long time to come or I will go epic with rage.

Wow nicely put! It was definitely one of the most powerful scenes of the show!

I have a feeling I'm going to be spend a lot of this series going 'stuff this Morgana, go back to Morgause!'

Gorgeous picspam. Those last scenes are always extremely heartbreaking for me, whenever I watch them. But I agree with what you wrote. I think it all started in season 1 but season 2 fully showed how isolated Morgana was - afraid of her life and with everyone to whom she turned ignoring her. I'm curious how the writers will develop her relationship with Morgause, who visibly cares for her - I mean, she could easily go for her aim and conquer Camelot leaving Morgana to die but she didn't. I just hope they won't screw it up.
