Storyline

Whilst out riding, Guinevere and Morgana are captured by the brigand Hengist's men, their escort slain. Morgana escapes but Guinevere is caught and a ransom demanded. Morgana is appalled when the heartless Uther refuses ransom. Arthur and Merlin set out to rescue her; however, Lancelot, now a travelling swordsman for money, is already at Hengist's castle, where he and Guinevere declare their love for each other. He attempts to save her but it is Arthur and Merlin - and Merlin's magic - who get them both out. Lancelot, realising that Arthur also loves Guinevere, slips away having told Merlin that Guinevere has changed him forever. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Gwen is short for Guinevere yet she was never called that in the original legend. Her real, full name in Welsh was Gwyneth, Gwynifred or Gwendolyn, varied from story to story, which also explains her nickname Gwen in the TV series. See more »

Goofs

During the scene where Lancelot and Guinevere are tied up in the cage and the captors are feasting, several twelve-ounce aluminum cans with printed graphics can be seen on the table. See more »
