Ruadan rescues his daughter but is fatally wounded in the process. Merlin and Arthur are route-marched to Morgana's wintry hide-out. Mordred shows them some kindness but Merlin mistrusts him. However Merlin and Arthur escape and arrive in the mines below the castle, where they free all the slaves, helped by a spirit called the Euchdag, who is herself the Diamar, the key which Morgana is seeking. Mordred saves Arthur from Morgana's attempt to kill him and is rewarded with a knighthood on the return to Camelot, the Euchdag having told Merlin that Arthur's bane is Arthur himself and not Mordred.
