Storyline

Learning from Agravaine that Arthur plans to wed Guinevere, Morgana uses necromancy to revive Lancelot, though he has no proper recollection of his past life and, grateful to Morgana, returns to Camelot to seduce the future queen. Guinevere resists, until she is presented with an enchanted bracelet supplied by Morgana for Lancelot to give her. The two meet in secret and are observed by Arthur. Merlin, suspicious of events, convinces Gaius of how the knight was resurrected, but can they stop Arthur from banishing Guinevere and putting Lancelot to death? Written by don @ minifie-1

An unexpected sour note...
31 January 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

There is no shame in using a formula ... if it works.

As my earlier reviews show, I am a major fan of the series. I especially like the producers manage to "re-imagine" the legend from week to week within the tight confines of a one hour episode.

The formula, which has served the series well for four seasons at this point, is to to create the conflict, let the conflict develop, and, usually by the finale, Merlin steps in.

As they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

This episode breaks the mould and frankly I can't quite figure out why.

The conflict was beautifully set up. The writing was sharp. Merlin was allowed to figure out the story along the lines of the best of detective fiction.

Yet as the finale approached, the writers just let the negative forces (Morgana and Co.) have their way.

Why break the formula? My disappoint the fans? Why throw a favorite character under the bus? The reason for the lower rating is simply that I, a fan, still can't provide a proper explanation. The larger issue is that I am not sure the writers can, either.
