As Arthur celebrates his engagement to Princess Mithian to unite their countries, the banished Guinevere witnesses a raid on her village by warlord Helios and afterwards overhears him plotting with Morgana to invade Camelot. They will enter the stronghold through the siege tunnels, plans of which have been given them by Agravaine. She escapes to inform Merlin but refuses to see Arthur, who inevitably disbelieves his uncle's treachery when told of the plot. However he still has feelings for Guinevere and calls off his engagement to Mithian. Written by don @ minifie-1

back in the groove
11 February 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

The prior episode (reviewed also by the writer) was one of the worst of the series but here the team is back in the groove.

First of all, any episode with Janet Montgomery is automatically going to be a cut above.

More importantly, and I have spent dozens and dozens of reviews on this point, the writers found how to "connect" with the audience via the plight of the Gwen character.

That is all it takes to make a difference.

And the "enchantment" scene where Merlin alone sees the reality of what is before him ... brilliant.
