* MagicMap: Er, kind of. Morgana uses magic to ''copy'' a map.

* {{Expy}}: The writers may have meant Mithian to be a nod to the Guinevere of the legends, what with her white complexion, noble birth and ArrangedMarriage to Arthur (as opposed to AngelCoulby's Guinevere being a servant girl who [[MarryForLove Marries For Love]]). Which means that the fact Arthur ultimately rejects Mithian could well be a TakeThat from the writers to the purists.

Added DiffLines:

* ImprobableAimingSkills: Subverted on a meta-level. If you watch the trajectory of the arrow that Mithian fires at Guinevere, it's clear that it lands only about a foot in front of her -- yet she manages to hit Guinevere from several metres away.

Added DiffLines:

** Even when Mithian returns to the show in series 5, it's unclear whether Guinevere knows that she was temporarily engaged to Arthur.

Added DiffLines:

* WithThisRing: Guinevere has been wearing her engagement ring around her neck; after Morgana tears it from her and leaves it in the forest, Arthur finds it.

Added DiffLines:

* ArrangedMarriage: Arthur and Mithian. Something of a variation considering it is ''Arthur'' (and presumably Mithian) who arrange the marriage themselves, rather than have it imposed upon them by their parents.


Added DiffLines:

* DieForOurShip: InUniverse. Merlin takes an instant dislike to Mithian because he's a ShipperOnDeck for Arthur/Guinevere. It's so overt that Mithian herself notices it.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellHero: Gaius calls Merlin "arrogant" for thinking that he can interfere in Arthur's love life to such an extent.

* CannotTalkToWomen: After clumsily asking Mithian out to a picnic, Arthur mutters to himself: "I've never been much good at this."

* PlotParallel: Arthur and Guinevere each have a new paramour in this episode, both of which could be described as an exaggerated version of the other (Mithian is a lovely, feminine, understanding princess; Helios is a manly, aggressive, [[Hidden Depths yet surprisingly genteel]] warrior). Though their stories never intersect (save when Arthur finds Gwen's ring) they each reject this new LoveInterest in favour of the other.
