Morgana and Helios have managed to take control of Camelot and Merlin and Arthur are now outlaws on the run. After becoming trapped in Ealdor with the army closing in, their situation ends up looking dire. Merlin attempts to restore Arthur's faith before it is too late.
Merlin is a young warlock who arrives in the kingdom of Camelot after his mother arranges for him to stay with the court physician, Gaius. He discovers that the king, Uther Pendragon, has outlawed magic and imprisoned the last great dragon deep under the kingdom.
The dragon tells Merlin that he plays an important role: to protect Uther's son, Arthur, who will bring forth a great kingdom. When Merlin meets Arthur, he believes that he is arrogant and Arthur, likewise, views Merlin as subservient. Merlin must keep his magic secret or face being executed by Uther.
