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?
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
She's drawing you in, Merlin. It's a trap. She knew your real name. There's only one explanation for that. Alator told Morgana who you really are and she has sent this woman to lure you to her.
But I looked into her eyes. She meant no harm.
You think a sorceress of her power couldn't feign any look she wished?
