Morgana has gone with Morgause, and the dragon, freed by Merlin, repeatedly attacks Camelot, causing huge fire damage. Only a dragon-lord is capable of containing the beast, men whom Uther persecuted years earlier, from which only one still survives (Balinor), who lives like a hermit in a cave. Gaius, who helped him escape Camelot, tells Merlin this is his father, and when Merlin and Arthur trace him, Merlin reveals himself to Balinor (though they keep it from Arthur). Balinor agrees to come to Camelot to assist, but there is further drama before Merlin proves himself to be his father's son and defeats the dragon. Written by

Why did you never return?
I thought her life would be better without me.
Uther wanted me dead. If he'd found me, he'd have killed me... and your mother. I wanted her to be safe.
We could've come with you.
And what kind of life would you have had here?
We'd have been... happy. When we have finished in Camelot, I'm going to take you to Ealdor.
She won't recognize me. I see her in you.
You have her kindness.

Admittedly, I came into the Merlin series late, having only just finished the 3rd and 4th season on iTunes after having watched seasons 1 and 2 on Hulu. After finishing all the past seasons, I find myself going back to "The Last Dragonlord" and watching it over and over again, noticing new nuances every time I see it. In my opinion, it is the best show for character usage and development, storyline, and emotional impact. The range of emotions that Merlin shows in this episode run the entire gamut from sadness to happiness. The other characters support the storyline well and it's one of the best written episodes. I recommend it highly
