after reading “the fault in our stars”

Hypable’s resident Merlin writers shed some light as to why we’re still not over BBC’s Merlin almost six months after the series finale.
A lengthy article summarising all the reasons the end of Merlin is so much harder to forget than other tragic endings.
Merlin, our protagonist, never got his reward for all those years of hardship. While he never wanted reward or recognition for what he did, that didn’t mean he didn’t deserve it - that the audience wasn’t expecting that payoff after having to watch him carry his secret for all these years.
And after Arthur died, Merlin didn’t even get to walk away. He didn’t get to move on. Because the dragon’s final words, while meant to bring him hope, basically thwarted any hope of closure for Merlin.
He knew that one day Arthur would return, which meant that whatever else he did, he always had to keep on waiting - seemingly forever, as the flash forward indicated. The writers practically left their main character in a state of suspense, in a torturous purgatory, where he could never find true peace because his watch had not yet ended.
And if our main character - our window into the universe of the series - never got to move on, then how can we be expected to?
