The Dark Tower - Review





So sill scratching my head and wondering what the hell happened during that episode. It started so well and looked promising but as soon as the boys reached the tower of doom it all went to hell. Can't help thinking it was rushed and too much was crammed into the last 10 mins or cut altogether, for instance, our heros escaping the tower and a reaction to the death of a comrade/friend/brother!

There is no other way of saying that Elyan's death fell flat. Considering we were told and shown that nothing in tower was real and played on your worst fears, I assumed Elyan hadn't really died or that Gwen wasn't real and he died for nothing. And then to have bare minimum reaction from the rest of the gang we have to assume that Morgana just let them leave - just like that?!

I did like the twist that Gwen is now on Morgana's side although I guess that must be temporary. Hopefully this means more Merthur for us! And on that note - what the hell was the juicy bit of Merthur we were promised all week? The handshake in the bedroom? Fail in the slash department guys!

This. Digital Spy are usually really on with their slash-goggles but apart from the usual UST giving the feeling that they were about the make out, that was probably the most tame thing I've seen from them in a long time. The slash was pretty disappointing all round in this ep actually.

Completely agree that Elyan's death was way too rushed. He was by no means my favourite knight but the characters didn't seem too bothered. I would have liked to have seen more reaction from the knights, especially Percival. I have to admit I will miss their bromance.

Yeah I might have liked the scene if it hadn't been built up as far more. Especially considering Arthur was mooning over Gwen while they were doing it, I was left thinking "was that it?"

There was definitely a lack of reaction to poor old Elyan. Sad when he was one of those closest to Arthur.
