About the disintegrator setting on the aser blades, you may recall this cartoon:

Like yesterday's, this is a condensation of three scripts, these composed years ago. Before space Agravaine's final scene, there was to be a space arc cartoon in which Agravaine and Mordred with a party of knights surprised Lancelot in Guenevere's bed in the palace at Camelot, just as in the baseline legends. Then Arthur was going to casually walk naked out of the bathroom in Guenevere's suite. Once the accusations of treason were thus dealt with and Agravaine and his party sent packing, Arthur would confess to Guenevere and Lancelot that he'd beamed into the bathroom from the Excalibur by means of Gawaine's reverse-engineered teleporter, foreshadowed all these years. (For those who don't read the text section, this will be recapped in the beginning of Sunday's cartoon.)

The original scripts for the final space Agravaine scene:

ARTHUR Dame Agravaine and I are not to be disturbed.
GUARD Yes, sire. Dame Agravaine?
GUARD Your aser. 
AGRAVAINE Who are you to -
GUARD You'll be alone in the king's presence. You know the rules.
ARTHUR Weren't you in trouble over this just last night?
AGRAVAINE All right, all right!!

ARTHUR This must stop, Agravaine.
AGRAVAINE Yes, uncle. It's time to expose the rot at the heart of Camelot!
ARTHUR The rot in the Round Table order is not those who love. It's those who 
AGRAVAINE Ha! Lancelot is a sham, and you're a wimp. You can't make the hard 
ARTHUR Agravaine. This is your last chance. Leave this persecution and truly 
     be a knight of the Round Table.
SFX psssh
ARTHUR *sigh* That's what I thought you'd say.

GUARD2 Relieving you.
GUARD The king and Agravaine are in there. Seem to be getting along for once. 
     It's been quiet for hours.
GUARD2 Sire! ...Isn't Dame Agravaine with you?
ARTHUR Agravaine? Left hours ago. See?
GUARD2 Sorry, sire. I was told - What's that smell?
ARTHUR I don't smell anything.
