The new queen of Camelot proves to be far crueller than Pendragon,who is made to watch from his dungeon as she slaughters innocents. Guinevere helps Sir Leon escape from prison to join her brother Elyan,Gaius,Merlin,Arthur and Gwaine who are hiding in the woods. Soldiers follow but they are saved by Lancelot and a youth of immense strength,Percival. Merlin looks into the waters of Avalon in the phial given him by the Fisher King,which directs him to Excalibur,the sword which will defeat the enemy. The fugitives find a round table,around which they movingly declare allegiance to each other and Arthur knights all the young men - except,of course Merlin,though Lancelot,aware of his powers,tells Merlin he is the bravest of them all. The group launch their invasion of Camelot,which gives Gaius his finest hour as the sisters are routed,largely due to Merlin's use of Excalibur. However,he replaces the sword in a rock until it can be used again. Written by

Here! Come and join me.
[Merlin, Gwen, Gaius, Lancelot, Gwaine, Elyan, Leon, and Percival take seats around the round table along with him
This table belonged to the ancient kings of Camelot. A round table afforded no man more importance than any other. They believed in equality in all things. So, it seems fitting that we revive this tradition now. Without each of you, we would not be here. My father has languished in prison too long. Tomorrow, I make my bid to rescue him. Are there any around ...
