Merlin spies on the troll and steals the potion she uses to resemble Catrina, replacing it with a fake one made by Gaius. Consequently she turns back into a troll, in view of everybody, but Uther, still bewitched by her, fails to see this. Merlin learns that the only way to break the spell on him is to make him weep real tears. Thus Gaius prepares another potion, which Arthur drinks, and makes him appear to be dead. This does the trick and the king finally comes to his senses. Arthur kills the troll and Jonas and thanks Merlin for his efforts. Written by

The poison that could cause such lethal effects as depicted in this episode is similar to tethrodotoxine, found in several tropical fishes which indeed match the symptoms that Gaius and Merlin have mentioned to Arthur, namely the state of clinical death. See more
