That extra is kissing a horse on the face, and it is beautiful. 

Merlin is thinking: “Gosh, it’s good to live in a pseudo-medieval land where humans and horses may openly express their love for each other!”
Arthur is thinking: “HELL’S TEETH, I AM SURROUNDED BY PEASANTS.”

Ten Sure-Fire Ideas For Merlin Spin-Off Shows

(Now that Merlin is ending, the world needs SOME source of gratuitous shirtlessness on a Saturday night, doesn’t it?)

1. The Queen’s Men
Gwen opens a male strip club full of pole-dancing knights. And in the season finale, they go for the Full Mordred…              

2. Stake Me Out
Light-hearted gameshow in which lucky peasants can win a date (the fruit, that is) and unlucky ones get unceremoniously burnt alive for witchcraft.

3. The Only Way Is Emrys
The everyday lives of hip young druids. Given that potatoes and tomatoes exist in Albion, the sudden invention of vajazzling comes as a surprise to nobody.

4. Great Dragon’s Den
Your chance to approach the Great Dragon Kilgharrah with an interesting business proposition! Although, most of the time, the Dragon growls something incomprehensible about your endeavours being cursed by destiny and then sets fire to your accountant.

5. Physician Who?
Gaius travels the realm in a magical blue hut, helping people wherever he goes. Well, as long as their problems can be solved by leeches, a herb poultice or a lie-down, that is.

6. Don’t Trust The Witch In Hovel 23
Sitcom in which Morgana spends her life coming up with ever more ridiculous plots to murder her annoyingly perky new roommate, while Aithusa tries to persuade her to get some therapy.

7. The X-Calibur Factor
Talent competition in which contestants must sing popular power ballads while pulling a sword out of a big rock. Please note: The outcome is based entirely on viewers’ votes and has not been predetermined by fate, fraud or Simon Cowell.

8. Gleeon
Musical comedy drama about Camelot’s most dependable knight. Features the international hit single Don’t Stop Walking Purposefully Into A Room And Shouting “Sire!”.

9. Percival Of Interest
The burly adventures of a man who is able to predict crimes using only his biceps. But occasionally he is obliged to use other muscles.

10. How To Look At Gwaine Naked
Possibly the world’s least challenging makeover show. But the results are always eye-catching…
