Episode 9: Lancelot du Lac

Summary

Lancelot's return from the dead reignites old feelings for Gwen, forcing her into temptation - a contest that, if she loses, could lead her to commit an unspeakable act of betrayal that would destroy the legacy of Camelot for ever. But Merlin is suspicious about the knight's reappearance and believes something more sinister is at play. Magical adventure series, starring Colin Morgan, Santiago Cabrera, Angel Coulby and Bradley James.

Review

Lancelot’s apparent demise earlier in the season was a shock, especially as it seemed a bit of an own-goal by the makers of Merlin. Dissolving his ready-made love triangle with Gwen and Arthur took something away from the show’s dramatic weaponry.

Well. Tonight, the dashingly handsome knight (Santiago Cabrera) returns from the dead, and old feelings are rekindled. Can Gwen (Angel Coulby) resist temptation, or will the very foundations of Camelot quake from a new court scandal. Perhaps Arthur will have to bare his chest. For the 50th time this series.

But Merlin, who knows Lancelot better than anyone, is curious…
