I don't know if this is the right forum to post in but is it's not please move it!

Anyways...I was re-watching episode 45 and I noticed that Merlin paused before saying 'someone else'. Could this mean Merlin knows who this other person that must be stopped is? And if so, why didn't he tell Mario?

Merlin probably does know, and he doesnt tell Mario to build suspense.

I like being a topic killer.

Well, Merlin could know more than just who the other person is but I think it would be easier to type about why he didn't say. Ancient and slightly omnipotent beings tend to have typically been through this kind of thing before and know what can happen if the reveal to much or too little. Now if he doesn't know if could just be that he was pausing to either be dramatic or was thinking about proper description.

Merlin was keeping the secret from Mario, because he couldn't allow things to be revealed just yet. He was sent to "watch over this world" so I feel the likelyhood of him not knowing, ver minnimal.

He seemed to be aware that the Darkness was trying to revive Nox Decious, so it's a fair bet that he knew they were planning to make Luigi the vessel and that eventually Mario would have to fight him. As he said in Part 3, though, he can never reveal too much -If Mario knew what risk his brother was at, he probably would have tried to stop it by confronting the Darkness head on, and that was exactly the opposite of what Merlin wanted him to do.

Merlin can only tell him so much before the knowledge starts influencing his decisions.

Merlin doesn't know what he's talking about. Am I the only person who noticed the skript behind the camera. jk.

Seriously, Merlin probably has a limited foresight. He can see most things, but others elude his intuition.

Oh, how I've wished for Merlin to say,

"Sorry Mario, I'm only here to fill in plot holes and foreshadow. If I told you all I knew now, I'd ruin all the cliff-hangers from now until the end of the Movie. You're just going to have to suck-it-up, go on with the story, and I'll tell you what I know when you've already figured it out on your own.

Oh, by the way, say "Hi" to Nox Decious for me, o.k.?
Wonderful. B-Bye."


Until Merlin fights...something/anything...I stand by that idea.
But is he a necessary character in the end? Yes. Without him, the plot would go no where in a hurry.

I think Merlin knows exactly what he's talking about and can forsee enough to keep the information to himself. If he told Mario that Link died to give the artifact to Mario in the Afterlife and that it was his destiny to be killed in an hour then Mario's knowledge of that may have altered the future.
