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