Storyline

The dark sorceress Nimueh casts a spell on a dragon egg she throws into the castle's water. The next day a plague causes people to die, their skin turning white with dark blue veins. When King Uther orders Prince Arthur to search all Camelot for the sorcerer he believes to have caused the epidemic, only a magic trick saves Merlin from having his book found. When Gwen's father exhibits symptoms, Merlin waves Gaius's warning by curing him. Arthur reports the recovery, and Uther orders her execution at the stake. Merlin tells Gwen's caring mistress, Morgana, only Arthur can help him fight the monster (an afanc), which they search for in the dragon's cave. Written by KGF Vissers

Another So-So Episode
22 July 2019 | by nike_mikey_7See all my reviews

2 OK episodes after a good pilot. Basically just introduces the character of Nimueh and reinforces the other characters' main traits/beliefs: Uther's hatred of magic, Gaius' vehemence that Merlin keep his magic hidden, Merlin's need to help, Arthur's desire to do the right thing, Morgana's affection for Guen and not seeing eye to eye with Uther, and Guen's... awkardness (?) lol. Maybe more like her initial uncertainty of her place in the world and how the lower class are not always treated fairly.
