Episode 12: The Sword in the Stone: Part One

Summary

In the first of a two-part season finale, Morgana and her massive army close in around Camelot, and when she strikes, the ferocity of her attack forces everyone to run for their lives - even Arthur. But the sorceress will not let him escape that easily - and so begins a chilling hunt for the king. Can Merlin save his master's life yet again? Sword-and-sorcery adventure, starring Colin Morgan, Bradley James and Katie McGrath, with guest appearances by Ben Daniels and Miranda Raison.

Review

Until now, power-mad Morgana hasn’t done awfully well at infiltrating Camelot — and staying there. That looks set to change in the first of a two-part series finale. Clad in goth-chic and flouncing around like a French perfume ad, the velveteen witch and her new ally Helios bear down on the citadel with their vast army. Their merciless siege forces everyone to flee for their lives, including Arthur — but Morgana is like a fox after a chain-mailed rabbit…

Expect impressive action, another medieval legend updated (Tristan and Isolde) and some long overdue turning of the tables between Arthur and Merlin.
