Ugh. Leaving the magic reveal for the finale would be such a bad decision. The reveal itself isn't the important part at this point. It's how it affects Arthur & Merlin's friendship, and Camelot & Arthur's attitude towards magic that people are interested in, and it'll take more than an episode to explore that in a satisfying way. =\

If they leave it like that, or god forbid, don't do the reveal at all, it'll feel like the entire series is just unfinished. Whatever epic destiny or friendship Arthur & Merlin have together is always going to be undermined by the fact that it's built on lies & deception.
