"Merlin" stars Katie McGrath and Angel Coulby haven't had a lot of screen time together since Season 2 of the international hit, but that changes in the next episode. "The Dark Tower," premiering at 9 p.m. CT Feb. 8 on Syfy, gave the actresses a chance to act opposite each other again. In the episode, Morgana (McGrath) kidnaps her one-time servant, now Queen Guinivere (Coulby), in order to draw King Arthur (Bradley James) into a reckless rescue attempt. Morgana covets the throne of Camelot, and will do whatever it takes to get it. "We've always said we wanted to work more together, and...

King Arthur's father would be turning over in his grave--if he were still in it. Arthur can't resist using magic to summon his father, Uther, back to Camelot in "The Death Song of Uther Pendragon," airing at 9 p.m. CT Jan. 18 on Syfy. When he was alive and king of Camelot, Uther banned magic from the kingdom. That's the reason Merlin hides his powers from Arthur to this day. Uther feared magic and believed that know good could come from its use. Maybe he was right. After Arthur seizes the chance to speak to the person he misses most he learns that the spirit world is indeed a dark and dangerous...

"Merlin" has ended its five-year run, but that doesn't mean a knight can't dream of more adventures in Camelot. "I'm waiting for my big moment, you know?" Rupert Young said, laughing, during a recent phone call. "I am waiting for the spinoff. I think it will be more 'Games of Thrones,' a little bit darker. So kind of [a] nine o'clock [show]. Maybe Starz can pick it up, make it a little bit more [adult] - more nudity. " Young played Sir Leon, one of the few Knights of the Roundtable still standing after the terrible battle at Camlann in the series finale that aired May 31 on...
