Morgana captures Alator - her former ally who later sided against her - in order to find out the identity of the legendary warlock known to the Druids as Emrys (still unaware this is Merlin). Merlin is approached by a mysterious woman, Finna, who warns him of danger and asks him to meet her at the temple of Erui. Though she is sent by Alator, Gaius suspects a trap and alerts Arthur to send his knights to find her, though she escapes with Merlin. She gives him a box and warns him against Mordred before willingly sacrificing herself to divert the pursuing Morgana. Back at Camelot, Merlin and Gaius open the box, which contains a prophecy of an imminent great battle. Shortly afterwards, a declaration of war by Morgana arrives. Written by

Did You Know?
Emrys is a sacred druid name for Merlin or Myrddin in Welsh. Merlin has various definitions: he is known as a sorcerer, warlock, wizard or a magician, depending on a story, but he has always remained a Celtic druid above all in all the existing legends. See more
At the picnic, Merlin stands up and walks past Gwen empty-handed. In the next shot he is still walking past Gwen but has a leather waterskin in his hand. See more
Why are you doing this for me?
Without you, Emrys, Arthur can not build a new world we all long for.
I don't understand.
For hundreds of years the Catha have guarded their ancient knowledge, but now the time has come to pass it on to you, Emrys, for only you can carry their hopes into the Great Battle itself.
