Episode List



The Waif
While running an errand, Valiant witnesses a young boy being beaten by his master for returning a poor man's money the master stole, and intervenes but doesn't have the chance to subdue the man who flees from passerby. The boy, Denys, hides in Valiant's wagon and begs to allow him to stay with him rather than return, and offers to work for Valiant. He proves himself hardworking and intelligent, and has a great deal in common with Valiant since he too has had the dream of Camelot. But when his master arrives attempting to reclaim him and Valiant stands up to him, King ...
The Lost
The first chance Valiant gets to command a force as a knight proves a formidable assignment: Mordred's men are causing trouble in outlying lands, still holding a personal grudge against Valiant for revealing he went against Camelot's ideals. His reasons for being concerned with whether he will be a strong commander increase when an attack in a searched tavern sees an injured Denys captured by Mordred's men, led by Owen.
The Deception
Cynan hires Glyndyn, a former student of Merlin's, to drug Dylan so he will be comatose and mistaken for dead even by Merlin, and has a henchman approach Camelot claiming to witness Valiant, whom Dylan has captured, kill him. Denys is invited to see Cynan and, with Merlin, goes only to return Dylan's body. Cynan plans to have Dylan actually kill him when he receives the antidote for the potion he took. And he not only succeeds in causing Denys doubt in his friend's innocence, but causing Valiant doubt over whether Denys has now chosen to stand with his family.

Merlin, Valiant, and Denys go to warn King Arthur and give Excalibur to him for the coming battle. Along the way, Merlin tells them how Arthur became king.
The Flute
Valiant and Denys visit Cassington, which harbors an unknown flutist who enchants everyone with a soulful song, and whose king, Donnovan, is famous for his ability to prevent war with neighboring countries. But while there, they learn a dark secret.

But during a mission led by Gawain, the troops suffer and Gawain writes that Lorn's instruction was to blame. When Valiant arrives, Gawain explains the situation tactlessly, causing Valiant to defend his friend even after he can tell by the next battle that Lorn's errors are real and costly. He must decide whether to allow Lorn to remain in Camelot and how their relationship will continue peacefully.
