2 Works in Episode: s02e02 The Once and Future Queen
Merlin is Arthur's lover, his manservant, his knight, the grain of sand that will make Camelot into a shining pearl. But the one thing he cannot be is a sorcerer. After Merlin confesses, Arthur is determined to find a way to remove Merlin's magic, to remove the corruption without killing him, and before it can destroy his soul. But magic can only be fought with magic. Without Merlin's powers, Camelot will be defenseless against the next magical attack. And that's not all Arthur has to worry about, because there are visitors to the court, alliances and enemies, and a princess he may have no choice but to marry. To set things right, Arthur will have to confront his father’s lies and embrace the magic he was raised to fear.
Gwen has kept her faith in secret even as she listened to Morgana's muttered nightmares and watched Merlin from afar. But when Morgana sees terrifying visions of Camelot’s destruction, the truth comes out for them both, bringing them together even as it tears them apart.
Through heartache and hard choices, all four of them must join forces to save Albion and its magic from the terrifying Sidhe and an equally terrifying Uther.
- Part 4 of Falconry
Gwen's quite aware of the insanity of it all: a pig-keeper is playing the noble, being taught a courtly dance by a maidservant, while a prince sits in a humble smith's cottage and watches them.
