Plot Summary

  • When a druid boy's father is caught by the king's guards, the boy sends out a telepathic call for help, to which Merlin responds and offers sanctuary; but, under penalty of death to anyone harboring the boy, will Merlin be willing to put himself and his friends in mortal danger? And when Uther's dungeon dragon hints of dark prophecies linked to the boy, will Merlin then turn a blind eye?

  • A druid buying provisions in Camelot is captured but uses magic to help his son escape. Merlin hears the sword-wounded boy telepathically and hides him in the palace, where Morgana takes pity on the kid, growing attached to him deeply enough to risk everything. King Uther has the druid decapitated and promises death to everyone helping the boy; Morgana is even more determined then Merlin to save him, insisting Merlin gets Gaius to heal the wound. Given the lad's tender age, Prince Arthur pleads Uther for leniency but, as a good soldier, obeys his father's royal orders to search everywhere and finally ends up arresting Morgana and the fugitive. The royal ward convinces Arthur to help arrange an escape from the dungeon. Merlin, ordered to help, hesitates over whether to obey Arthur (and his heart) or heed Gaius's warning (and the dragon's explicit counsel that the druid boy means fatal danger for Arthur), but he can't resist another telepathic call.
