As Morgana's forces capture Camelot, Arthur at last comes to see his uncle's treachery. He is reluctant to flee, but Merlin bewitches him into escaping with him, temporarily blocking his memory and dressing him as a peasant. Elyan, Gaius, and Gwaine are taken prisoner, though Morgana is impressed by Gwaine's performance in trials by combat. Separated from Leon and Percival, Merlin and Arthur fall in with smugglers Tristan and Isolde, during which Merlin's spell wears off and the young king can reveal his identity to them. The quartet escapes to Ealdor, Merlin's village, where a wounded Arthur is nursed by Guinevere as Agravaine and his army close in. Written by

I've lost everything I've worked for for some good-for-nothing king?
That's quite something, coming from a smuggler.
Well, I wouldn't have to be a smuggler if it wasn't for your damn taxes, would I?
Those taxes help protect the people of this land.
My people are dead. You call that protection?
