Storyline

While hunting, Arthur and Merlin see a unicorn. Despite Merlin's protests, Arthur kills the beautiful creature to bring the crass Uther its horn as an ornament. The foolish father and son ignore Gaius's warning that it is bad luck to kill a unicorn, but soon the crops wither and the well water turns to sand. The mystic Anhora, guardian of the unicorns, arrives in Camelot to tell Arthur that his stupidity has cursed the land and he alone can lift that curse. This involves his learning much-needed humility before riding to the Labyrinth of Gedref, where he will be tested. Merlin follows him but, by doing so, places both boys in danger. Unusually, it is Arthur who saves the day with a demonstration of selflessness, ultimately restoring the welfare of Camelot and the unicorn itself. Written by don @ minifie-1

Finally
29 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been told about Merlin by a few friends, so I watched season 1 on Netflix. It was pretty good, but it got boring for a few episodes, but I kept at it. The episodes were mediocre, and kind of repetitive, but this episode is great!

"The Labyrinth of Gedref" is a breath of fresh air in a middling series. It's original, and finally ups the stakes. This episode is the best episode of the whole season and it gets the rating that it deserves. It was finally what my friends were saying about how good this show is. "The Labyrinth of Gedref" is finally the great episode that I was looking for, and I hope the rest of the show is just like this.

8.3/10, its worth a watch!
