Well this time I saw the second man right away, his hair seems to be blonde and he's lying face down across Arthur. Before I thought it was Arthur's body that was twisted around in an awkward way.

Well, yes, that does look a bit like a dog, and I had seen that before. But the size, crude shape and position of this dog-thing is very odd, its larger than the recognizable dog, and floating above it somehow, yet it seems that it might be further away! It does add to the overall chaos and insanity of the scene though.

Hmm, I don't think Bedivere's doing a good job of protection if that's the case, and Bedivere's hair in the Knight of Spears is brown, not blonde. However, if you look at the King of Swords, Mordred, you will see that he is blonde and that he has the same eagle crest on his throne as the fallen man has on the back of his tunic! So I think Leo's original theory was correct, and Mordred is piled on top of Arthur.

Yes, you are right of course about Arthur, he really can't be dead quite yet. And of course Arthur's journey across the lake in The Judgement implies that death itself is yet another illusion.

The fear that becomes fury, lashing out in destructive ways.
Yes, I can identify with this line of thought - well put, WalesWoman!
