While King Arthur and Queen Guinevere are away, Morgana slips a potion into Merlin's drink that causes him to fall asleep...but will eventually cause death after he lingers for a short time dreaming of the life he always wanted to live with his lover, Lynette. Valiant, Arn, and Rowanne look through Merlin's study for an antidote and find the name of one of his friends, "The Mighty Om", whom they approach for help. The short but clever if odd scholar concocts a potion that he says may either restore or exterminate Merlin. Rowanne tests it, but Valiant and Arn soon learn they may end up losing the woman they both love. Written by

If you could try to provide us your attention, Merlin, we will try to be as interesting as a view from the window.
The windows, unlike your maps, Lord Kellar, looks out upon a world of borderless wonders.
