The new queen of Camelot proves to be far crueler than Uther, who is made to watch from his dungeon as she slaughters innocents. Guinevere helps Sir Leon escape from prison and joins her brother Elyan, Gaius, Merlin, Arthur and Gwaine, who are hiding in the woods. Soldiers follow but they are saved by Lancelot and a youth of immense strength, Percival. Merlin looks into the waters of Avalon in the phial given him by the Fisher King, which directs him to Excalibur, the sword which will defeat the enemy. The fugitives find a round table, around which they movingly declare allegiance to each other, and Arthur knights all the young men - except, of course, Merlin, though Lancelot, aware of his powers, tells Merlin he is the bravest of them all. The group launches its invasion of Camelot, which gives Gaius his finest hour as the sisters are routed, largely due to Merlin's use of Excalibur. However, he places the sword in a rock until it can be used again. Written by don @ minifie-1

Best Merlin episode ever.
5 December 2010 | by sharon-d16See all my reviews

This episode is the show at its best, bringing together elements and characters from the other series and even introducing classic elements from that the legend that make this final stand out. Series Three's story arc comes together for this episode, the pace never slows and it in general the episode has an epic feel to it. I don't want to spoil anything but I will say this episode revolves around Athur coming closer to the person he is destined to be. This is character development at its most epic. This is what Merlin should always be and its really left me anticipating Series Four. Also I enjoyed this more than Doctor Who's Big Bang final. now THATS saying something.
