New servant Cedric muscles in on Merlin’s position as Arthur’s right-hand-man and turns the prince against his loyal friend. Merlin is convinced the slippery newcomer is up to something and he’s right – Cedric is a conman and a thief who’s after a magnificent jewel recently unearthed in a tomb far beneath Camelot. Little does Cedric know, his precious prize is more dangerous than he could possibly imagine.
Camelot has never been more vulnerable but how can Merlin make things right when, thanks to Cedric, he might have lost Arthur’s friendship for good? Merlin faces the prospect of turning to the creature he swore he’d never trust again - The Great Dragon.
Arthur is determined to win Camelot’s jousting tournament on his own merit, so with Merlin and Gwen’s help he goes undercover as an ordinary man. But Arthur’s in for a shock when Gwen challenges him to give up his spoilt, lofty ways. Will Arthur be able to shake the habits of a lifetime as easily as he did his princely robes? And why does he care so much what Gwen thinks anyway?
While Arthur’s distracted, the bounty hunter Myror (Adrian Lester) arrives in Camelot, intent on killing him. Can Merlin save the prince from the most deadly assassin in the land?
When Morgana’s nightmares spill into waking hours she becomes terrified that she has magic. Gaius is determined to keep her in the dark for her own good but Merlin won’t stand by and watch his friend suffer. He knows exactly what she’s going through and he knows she needs the truth. Is Merlin about to reveal his secret at last?
Willfully disobeying Gaius, Merlin risks everything to help Morgana, little guessing what the far reaching consequences might be. Lives are put in danger, loyalties are tested, and Morgana is reunited with the strange young druid boy Mordred (Asa Butterfield), who the Dragon predicted would one day kill Arthur...
Gwen is mistaken for Morgana and kidnapped by the savage outlaw Hengist (James Cosmo). Uther refuses to pay her ransom so Arthur defies his father, heading out into dangerous enemy territory to fight for Gwen’s freedom. Merlin suspects Arthur’s devotion to Gwen is more than just that of a prince to one of his subjects. But how will Arthur react when he finds Gwen is not alone in Hengist’s castle? She and Lancelot (Santiago Cabrera) have found each other again, and powerful feelings have been rekindled...
The first episode of this exciting two parter sees Uther captivated by his latest guest, the beautiful Lady Catrina (Sarah Parish). Arthur is appalled by his father’s flirting but Merlin’s wary for a different reason – he suspects she is really a troll! Catrina and her strange servant Jonas (Adam Godley) are welcomed into the heart of Camelot and it is up to Merlin to prove she’s a monster and save Uther from ruin. Unfortunately, Catrina has her sights set on a far greater prize than the King’s heart. Can Merlin overcome her powerful troll magic before it’s too late?
Newly crowned Queen Catrina (Sarah Parish) settles in as Camelot's first lady. As her true troll nature surfaces her influence over Uther increases and the repercussions are felt throughout the kingdom. When Catrina accuses Merlin of stealing, he is driven into hiding. Forced to sneak around the castle, Merlin must find a way to expose Catrina's true form without getting caught – and beheaded. But even if he succeeds, will this be enough to break her powerful magic?
Fresh take on legendary wizard is fun, if not truly magical.
