Storyline

Morgana realizes she has magic powers when she sets her room on fire from her bed. Against the advice of Gaius and the dragon, Merlin sends her to seek advice from the Druids. Uther, believing she has been abducted, orders the deaths of all suspected sorcerers and their sympathizers unless she is returned, so Merlin goes after her. Locating her in the Druid village where chieftain Aglain tells her the truth (giving her confidence that magic can be used for good), Merlin must get her back to Camelot before Arthur and a vengeful search party catches up with them and kills all.

What kind of Merlin Ep is this?!!
9 October 2009 | by (America) – See all my reviews

Ughh! This episode was a huge disappointment. I really like the Merlin BBC Series overall -- Season 1 was AWESOME, but this episode was just plain bad. What kind of writer wrote this!? It was sloppily written, had no plot, and no had funny parts.

There was no point to the episode -- it was some wild-goose chase with Morgana running around in a forest looking for druids and a bunch of good people getting killed because her selfishness and Merlin's stupidity.

I mean why couldn't Merlin just tell her he was magical instead of sending her to a scorpion-ridden forest in search of druids which were obviously outlawed by Luther? Morgana used to be one of my favorite characters in the first season, but this totally made her a spoiled, incredibly useless bimbo. She let hundreds of innocent people in Camelot just die to save her own skin? -- It seems really uncharacteristic if judging by her actions in Season 1. She stood up for the guy who was being executed by Luther in the episode of the first season, and protected Gwen when she was accused of sorcery.

It changed the whole story line from the first season. It really bugs me how the characters have different personalities now. Arthur likes Gwen and Merlin likes Morgana? o__O (What is that?? It's complete opposite from season 1 and makes no sense.) This episode was the worst! :(
