Gwen faces an impossible dilemma when she is forced to choose between saving the life of her estranged brother (Elyan) or Arthur. With one of them certain to die at the hands of Cenred, who will Gwen choose: the love of her life or her only sibling? Loyalty and friendships are tested to the limit as Arthur, Merlin and Gwen work together to try to find a way out; but, with Morgana and Morgause doing all they can to scupper their plans, will good conquer evil or will Gwen lose someone she loves again?

(at around 7 mins) After Arthur takes a deep smell of the cloth and awakens he asks "what is that!". Merlin tells him "a combination of hogwort and valerian". Hogwort contains Croton oil which is caustic, causing irritation and pain even to the point of blisters in high enough concentrations and would keep someone awake due to the resulting discomfort if inhaled. St John's Wort however is used to induce sleep, as is valerian, and could in high enough concentrations (and with a bit of magick) be used to knock someone out in order to kidnap them; something that any warlock like Merlin would know.

I'm the one you want, Cenred. Let them go.
You are right. That would only be fair. But fair's for fools. Take them away!
