The new queen of Camelot proves to be far crueler than Uther, who is made to watch from his dungeon as she slaughters innocents. Guinevere helps Sir Leon escape from prison and joins her brother Elyan, Gaius, Merlin, Arthur and Gwaine, who are hiding in the woods. Soldiers follow but they are saved by Lancelot and a youth of immense strength, Percival. Merlin looks into the waters of Avalon in the phial given him by the Fisher King, which directs him to Excalibur, the sword which will defeat the enemy. The fugitives find a round table, around which they movingly declare allegiance to each other, and Arthur knights all the young men - except, of course, Merlin, though Lancelot, aware of his powers, tells Merlin he is the bravest of them all. The group launches its invasion of Camelot, which gives Gaius his finest hour as the sisters are routed, largely due to Merlin's use of Excalibur. However, he places the sword in a rock until it can be used again. Written by don @ minifie-1

Arthur: Here! Come and join me.
[Merlin, Gwen, Gaius, Lancelot, Gwaine, Elyan, Leon, and Percival take seats around the round table along with him]
Arthur: This table belonged to the ancient kings of Camelot. A round table afforded no man more importance than any other. They believed in equality in all things. So, it seems fitting that we revive this tradition now. Without each of you, we would not be here. My father has languished in prison for too long. Tomorrow, I make my bid to rescue him.

Can this get any better? I had tears in my eyes, they cleverly laid the ground work for moving the story forward, Sword in its right place, the Evil which is exposed, and Arthur is ready to take up the ropes, what next? This story makes Merlin truly believable, the down to earth behavior between Arthur and Merlin is true friendship developing over time, as we know they are together for a log time, so they must be friends, the acting makes this truly believable, and I can see a Movie coming from this serious, possibly like the doctor who where they produce a Xmas Movie with a good nail biting plot with our friendly but parent like Dragon, who on one hand shows fierce emotion behavior, layered with caring wise statements of guidance. On one hand he Says, Merlin you are responsible for all the bad things for not letting the witch live, but on the other hand, in allegiance with merlin against the Dark witch. A Truly enjoyable Series that is Child Safe, and Adult interesting, Comical moments that surprise, with the serious stuff making you sit on the edge of your Chair.
