Arthur and his knights come to a village where the head man has been killed and his alleged murderer Colfur is about to be lynched. Arthur insists he is tried at Camelot as a precedent for a justice system to establish fairness. By getting Guinevere to talk to Colfur's little daughter he finds that the case is not as simple as it first appeared and he is grateful for her help. Sybil suggests Morgan adopt a charm offensive to win hearts and minds away from Arthur but it fails so she employs desperate measures to persuade locals they need Morgan's patronage. Merlin, still shocked by Excalibur's death, shuts himself away designing diagrams, which puzzle Uther's widow Ygrain.
Despite Camelot's ruinous state, people keep flocking to it, so Arthur gives Guinever permission to start organizing its domestic functioning. Merlin, for days presumed missing, is found hiding in the attic, in pain, mourning Excalibur's death and worrying about some great scheme even Arthur and Igraine can't get him to comment on. Without consulting him, Arthur accepts to preside a bench of his knights in judgment over outskirt villager Colfur, who refuses to defend himself against the accusation to have murdered his headman's brother. His daughter proves key to a larger problem. In Uther's castle, ambitious nun Sybil starts coaching Morgan to win popular support for her claim to the throne. Sybil hires a mercenary to stage a mugging on herself, to demonstrate Arthur's reign's 'utterly incompetent insecurity', then turn on their accomplice.
