Merlin would have been killed by a giant griffin (half eagle, half lion) if not for valiant Lancelot, who bravely attacked it and got them safely away. Learning Lancelot's life dream is to become a knight, grateful Merlin brings him to court, but when told only noblemen may apply, magically forges proof of nobility. Lancelot passes hazing and close combat tests against Prince Arthur but is found out as commoner and jailed. When the griffin attacks Camelot - even inside the royal castle - the knights' arms prove unable to penetrate it . Arthur frees Lancelot, who in return (with Merlin's magical help) triumphs where all knighthood fails miserably, but will Uther finally hear Arthur's plea to allow the best sword to serve in chivalry despite existing social restrictions?

Did You Know?
First appearance of Lancelot. See more
In the beginning, after the first "fight", Arthur puts his sword on the shield Merlin is carrying with the blade sticking out to the right (of Merlin).When the angle changes, the sword is in the middle with the blade to Merlin's left. See more
So, come on, just for the sake of argument. If you had to: Arthur or Lancelot?
But I don't have to and I never will.
You're no fun, Gwen.
