KILGHARRAH
In a land of myth and a time of magic, the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young boy. His name: Merlin.

--

[INT. KING’S PALACE, MORGANA’S CHAMBERS – DAY]
[A thunderstorm rages. Morgana stirs restlessly in her sleep and magically lights candle by her bed.]

GWEN
I brought you some extra blankets, I thought you might be cold...

[Morgana is asleep so Gwen stops talking and blows out the candle and puts it by the window. Morgana magically relights candle in her sleep again. She wakes, stares at the candle and makes the flame rise higher, burning her curtains. She screams and blows out her windows.]

OPENING CREDITS

--

[INT. KING’S PALACE, MORGANA’S CHAMBERS – DAY]
[Merlin cleans up the burnt fragments and glass.]

GWEN
I came back in with some extra blankets. There was a candle, but I put it out.

UTHER
Are you sure?

GWEN
I blew it out, I swear.

ARTHUR
Gwen's been Morgana's servant for years. If she said she blew it out, I believe her.

UTHER
She could've been burnt alive.

ARTHUR
Lightning struck the castle roof last night, that could've started the fire.

UTHER
Perhaps.

ARTHUR
What other explanation is there?

UTHER
Someone started the fire deliberately.

--
[EXT. KING’S PALACE, COURTYARD CORRIDOR – DAY]
[Uther and Arthur walk down the corridor.]

UTHER
How did they reach Morgana's chambers unchallenged?

ARTHUR
I don't know. There are too many guards. It shouldn't be possible.

UTHER
And yet they managed to do so.

ARTHUR
I can't explain it.

UTHER
Well I can. They used magic. Arrest all those we have under suspicion.

ARTHUR
That's gonna take time.

[Uther puts his face in Arthur's]

UTHER
My ward has been attacked. Time is something we do not have.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, PHYSICIAN’S CHAMBERS – DAY]
[Merlin approaches the room and overhears Gaius and Morgana.]

GAIUS
What I don't understand, Morgana is how the fire started in the first place.

MORGANA
It happened so quickly. It was terrifying.

GAIUS
It's alright. You're safe now.

MORGANA
You're the only person I've told about my dreams. I know I can trust you, Gaius.

GAIUS
Yes, of course you can.

MORGANA
It was me. I set the room alight. I started the fire.

GAIUS
I don't understand. Did you knock a candle over?

MORGANA
No that's not what happened. I did it just by looking at it, the flames suddenly leapt higher.

GAIUS
I could've been a gust of wind.

MORGANA
It wasn't. It was me. It was magic.

GAIUS
My child...

MORGANA
I'm not a child!

GAIUS
Last night was an accident. It had nothing to do with you. How could it have? I am going to draw you up a fresh remedy that will make you feel better, I promise.

MORGANA
No...

GAIUS
You must trust me.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, PHYSICIAN’S CHAMBERS – DAY]
[Merlin sits while Gaius makes a potion.]

MERLIN
I was helping clear up Morgana's chambers earlier.

GAIUS
Hmm?

MERLIN
The window was blown out into the courtyard below.

GAIUS
Hmm.

MERLIN
It's odd isn't it? If lightning struck the window like Arthur said, you'd think the glass would've fallen inside of the window. It was magic. You know it was. More importantly, so does she.

GAIUS
Morgana knows nothing for certain.

MERLIN
Which makes it even worse. She isn't sure what's happening to her and it's tearing her apart.

GAIUS
What would you have me do?

MERLIN
Talk to her. Tell her she'll be ok. Tell her that her powers aren't something to be afraid of.

GAIUS
I can't.

MERLIN
Maybe I could speak to her.

GAIUS
No, Merlin, you can't.

MERLIN
What not? I understand what she's going through.

GAIUS
You must never reveal your secret. Not to anyone.

MERLIN
If not me, then someone else.

GAIUS
Who? This is a kingdom where magic is outlawed, or have you forgotten that?

MERLIN
There are those who still practice it. What about the druids? You said that they help people like this.

GAIUS
Uther's vowed to destroy them. The druids cannot help her. It would be suicide.

MERLIN
Then who can?

GAIUS
I will. Like I've always done.

MERLIN
Then you need to be honest with her.

GAIUS
What makes you so certain that you know better than me?

MERLIN
Because I went through the same thing. I know exactly how she's feeling right now.

GAIUS
You cannot get involved in this. No good can come of it. I mean it, Merlin. Stay out of it!

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, GRIFFIN STAIRCASE – DAY]
[Arthur passes Merlin just as Merlin is about to visit Morgana's Chambers. Merlin hides flowers behind his back.]

ARTHUR
Ah, Merlin. I need you to... What are you hiding behind your back?

MERLIN
Nothing. See?

ARTHUR
What are you up to?

MERLIN
What, nothing, honestly. Arthur, I would never lie to you. I respect you far too much for that. You wanted me to do something.

ARTHUR
My chainmail needs cleaning.

MERLIN
Oh, well...I'll see to it right away.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, MORGANA’S CHAMBERS – DAY]
[Gwen opens the door to Morgana's Chambers.]

MERLIN
How is she?

GWEN
I've never seen her like this before. I'm scared to leave her on her own.

MERLIN
Is there anything I can do to help?

[Morgana stirs restlessly in bed.]

GWEN
I'd better get back to her.

[Merlin hands Gwen the flowers.]

GWEN
I'll make sure she knows who they're from.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, MORGANA’S CHAMBERS – NIGHT]
[Gwen sits on the edge of Morgana's bed with her.]

GWEN
I can stay if that would make you feel better.

MORGANA
You've done so much already.

GWEN
I don't mind.

MORGANA
I'll be fine. Really.

[Gwen squeezes her hand and gets up to leave.]

MORGANA
Gwen. Take the candle.

[Gwen takes the candle and leaves. Morgana tries to sleep, but wakes up her eyes glow and she magically shatters the vase with Merlin's flowers in it.]

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, PHYSICIAN'S CHAMBERS – NIGHT]
[Morgana rushes in wearing her nightgown, almost hysterical.]

MORGANA
Is Gaius here?

MERLIN
Er, no he's not here at the moment. He should be back soon though.

MORGANA
I need to speak to him. Where is he?

MERLIN
He's gone to see the King. What's wrong? You can trust me, Morgana. You know you can.

MORGANA
I'm scared, Merlin. I don't understand anything anymore. I need to know what's happening. Please.

MERLIN
Gaius will be back soon. He'll be able to help you.

MORGANA
He won't. I don't any more remedies. They won't do any good. It's magic, Merlin.

MERLIN
What?

MORGANA
I'm your friend, you know I wouldn't make this up.

MERLIN
Of course.

MORGANA
Then you believe me? You think it's magic too. Please, Merlin, I just need to hear someone say it so I don't have to keep feeling like I'm imagining it.

MERLIN
I really wish there was something I could say.

[Morgana backs away and walks out.]

MERLIN
Morgana. Morgana. Wait.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, DRAGON’S CAVE – NIGHT]

MERLIN
I need your help. Do you know where the druids are?

KILGHARRAH
First you must tell me why you seek them.

MERLIN
That doesn't matter.

KILGHARRAH
It does to me.

MERLIN
I need to ask them something.

KILGHARRAH
I've lived more than a thousand years, seen civilisations rise and fall. Do not believe that you can lie to me.

MERLIN
I need their help. (sigh) Someone I care about needs their help.

KILGHARRAH
You speak of the witch, the Lady Morgana.

MERLIN
She's not a witch. She's my friend.

KILGHARRAH
She cannot be trusted.

MERLIN
What makes you say that?

KILGHARRAH
It would be better if The Witch...

MERLIN
Stop calling her that!

KILGHARRAH
It would be better if The Witch never knew the true extent of her powers.

MERLIN
You're wrong. I know her. She has a good heart.

KILGHARRAH
You failed to heed my advice in the past and it brought grave consequences.

MERLIN
I won't abandon her.

KILGHARRAH
I will not give you the help you seek. If you pursue this course of action, you do so alone.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, ARTHUR’S CHAMBERS – DAY]
[Merlin absentmindedly cleans Arthur's chainmail. Arthur enters with Leon, holding a scroll of parchment.]

ARTHUR
You sure this is all of them?

SIR LEON
Names and last known dwelling places.

ARTHUR
My father suspects the fire was started by sorcery.

SIR LEON
Indeed, Sire. I've included the details of everyone we suspect of consorting with sorcerers, witches, or druids.

ARTHUR
Gather the men. We'll arrest them immediately. I thought I told you to do that yesterday.

MERLIN
I didn't have time. I was cleaning the stables.

ARTHUR
That's strange. Because a little bird told me you were somewhere else.

MERLIN
Mucking out the stables is strange and a talking bird isn't?

ARTHUR
Merlin, what've we said about you trying to be funny?

MERLIN
I shouldn't.

ARTHUR
So where are my flowers?

MERLIN
Your flowers?

ARTHUR
I heard Morgana got some. I assumed you'd be putting them in all the rooms. Or is she the only one to receive a token of your affections?

MERLIN
Yes. Er, No. Er...what? It's not a token of anything, affection or otherwise.

ARTHUR
I see. So why were you trying to hide them from me yesterday?

MERLIN
I wasn't. I mean, I was. Just, erm, I didn't want you to get the wrong impression.

ARTHUR
And what's the right impression?

MERLIN
That I was trying to cheer her up after the fire.

ARTHUR
Pick them yourself?

MERLIN
Maybe. I was only trying to be nice.

ARTHUR
Sword.

[Merlin hands him the sword.]

ARTHUR
That'll be all.

[Merlin leaves and Arthur shakes his head.]

--
[EXT/INT. LOWER TOWN, FORRIDEL’S HOUSE – DAY]
[Merlin sees people being rounded into the Square as he heads for the Lower Town. Merlin tries to enter a house. It's locked.]

MERLIN Ic I Tóspringæ.

[The door unlocks. Merlin enters. A woman puts a sword to his back.]

FORRIDEL
Move and I kill you.

MERLIN
Forridel?

FORRIDEL
Who are you?

MERLIN
There is no time to explain, we have to get out of here. The King's men are coming for you.

[Pounding on the door.]

GUARD
Open in the name of the King!

[Merlin and Forridel sneak out the back way and watch the house from around the corner.]

FORRIDEL
How did you know they were coming for me?

MERLIN
I'm Prince Arthur's servant.

FORRIDEL
You took a great risk, thank you.

MERLIN
I'm just sorry I couldn't help them all.

FORRIDEL
We better go.

MERLIN
No, wait. I need your help. I'm looking for a way to contact the druids.

FORRIDEL
I wouldn't know anything about them.

MERLIN
You don't need to lie to me.

FORRIDEL
I'm not lying.

MERLIN
Please, if it wasn't for me, you'd be under arrest. You know I'm not a spy for Uther. I'm a friend of the druids. I need their help.

FORRIDEL
What do you want to know?

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, MORGANA’S CHAMBERS – NIGHT]
[Morgana holds the door open for Merlin to enter. Merlin holds a bottle.]

MERLIN
Gaius asked me to deliver this.

MORGANA
I don't need any potion, thank you. Merlin? Ignore what I said last night. I had a nightmare, I was upset.

MERLIN
I know. I haven't said anything to anyone.

MORGANA
I'm sorry. It's usually Gwen that has to deal with me when I'm like this.

MERLIN
I don't mind. Maybe I could help.

MORGANA
I doubt that.

MERLIN
You'd be surprised.

[Merlin closes the door.]

MERLIN
I understand. I realise how frightening all this must be for you. Especially for you.

MORGANA
Why especially for me?

MERLIN
You're the King's ward. You know his hatred of magic better than anyone.

MORGANA
That's what you think has been happening to me? The dreams. The fire. You think it was magic?!

MERLIN
I'm not saying that.

MORGANA
But it could be, couldn't it?

MERLIN
I really wouldn't know, but there are people who do.

MORGANA
Who?

MERLIN
What about the druids? They help people like you.

MORGANA
None of their kind would dare show their face in Camelot.

MERLIN
No. But I know where you can find them.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, MORGANA’S CHAMBERS – DAY]
[Warning bells ring in Camelot.]

ARTHUR
The guards have completed of the castle. There's no trace of her.

UTHER
Encircle the city. No one gets in or out.

GAIUS
You sent for me, Sire?

UTHER
Yes. What time did you deliver the sleeping draught to Morgana?

GAIUS
Well, I...

ARTHUR
The guards said that Merlin delivered it after she retired to her chambers.

UTHER
So she was safe them?

GAIUS
Yes. Well, I suppose she must've been.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, PHYSICIAN'S CHAMBERS – DAY]
[Gaius grabs Merlin' shoulder and holds up the potion bottle.]

GAIUS
I didn't ask you to take this to Morgana last night.

MERLIN
I used some initiative, I thought you'd be pleased.

GAIUS
Those warning bells are ringing because Uther thinks that Morgana's been kidnapped. And you don't seem overly concerned.

MERLIN
She can look after herself.

GAIUS
Merlin, what have you done?

MERLIN
What you refused to. I helped her.

GAIUS
This ends now. People's lives are at risk, Morgana's included. Where is she?

MERLIN
She's gone to the Forest of Essetir to find the druids.

GAIUS
I told you not to get involved.

MERLIN
I had to because you wouldn't even acknowledge she had magic.

GAIUS
For good reason.

MERLIN
No. You don't understand. You don't understand what it's like. The years before I came here were the loneliest of my life.

GAIUS
Morgana is the King's ward. Her situation is completely different to yours.

MERLIN
I know. I've got you, she hasn't.

GAIUS
I've always taken good care of Morgana.

MERLIN
It is not the same. Everything that's good and right about magic I've learnt from you. I'd be lost without you, Gaius. Like she is now. Do you understand why I did it?

GAIUS
Yes, I do. But that doesn't mean I don't fear the consequences.

--
[EXT. FOREST]
[Morgana walks through the woods in a bright red cloak. She can hear menacing critter noises.]

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, COUNCIL CHAMBER]

UTHER
Have all the suspects been arrested?

ARTHUR
Nearly. A few have gone to ground.

UTHER
Issue a proclamation. "All the prisoners will be executed unless the Lady Morgana is returned to Camelot."

ARTHUR
I'll see to it, Sire.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, PHYSICIAN'S CHAMBERS – NIGHT]
[Merlin sneaks out. He bumps a table.]

MERLIN (whisper Gestillan! Gestillan! Gestillan!

[The spell stops several objects from crashing. Merlin approaches some guards.]

MERLIN Forbearnan firgenholt.

[The spell enhances a torch fire to scare off some guards. Merlin comes to the grate at the end of the tunnel outside the castle ramparts.]

MERLIN Tospringe.

[The spell blows open the tunnel grate with magic.]

--
[EXT. FOREST – NIGHT]
[Morgana is attacked by serkets. A red cloaked man comes to her rescue as she passes out.]

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, PHYSICIAN'S CHAMBERS – DAY]

GAIUS
Come on, Merlin! Out of your bed! You'll be late for work. Merlin?

[Merlin walks across country.]

--
[INT. DRUID CAMP, MORGANA’S TENT – DAY]
[Morgana wakes as someone strokes her forehead with a cloth.]

AGLAIN
I'm not going to hurt you.

MORGANA
Ah...!

AGLAIN
You've hurt your leg. Try not to move it.

MORGANA
What happened?

AGLAIN
You were stung by a serket. I came to help. My name's Aglain. Relax, Morgana. You're safe now.

MORGANA
Who told you my name?

MORDRED (telepathy)
I did.

MORGANA
You.

AGLAIN
When the serket attacked last night, Mordred was able to sense your distress in his mind.

MORDRED (telepathy)
Hello Morgana.

MORGANA
Did you hear that? How did you do that?

AGLAIN
We don't always need words to speak to one another.

MORDRED
Now I can take care of you like you did me.

--
[EXT. TUNNEL EXIT – DAY]
[Arthur, Uther, Gaius and the guards inspect the tunnel grate that Merlin blew off its hinges.]

ARTHUR
There's some confusion as to how that was broken. By the looks of these scorch marks...

UTHER
There is no confusion. It was magic. The same magic that was used to start the fire in Morgana's chambers. Where does the trail lead?

ARTHUR
To the forest of Essetir.

UTHER
We've long suspected that the druids have hidden there.

ARTHUR
The trail will lead us straight to them.

UTHER
Take no prisoners. It's time we rid ourselves of these druids once and for all.

[Uther leaves. Arthur turns to Gaius.]

ARTHUR
Where's Merlin?

GAIUS
Erm...He's, er, he's not well.

ARTHUR
He's still upset about Morgana, isn't he?

GAIUS
We all are.

ARTHUR
Tell him to stop pining, pull himself together, and get back to work.

--
[EXT. KING’S PALACE, DRAWBRIDGE – DAY]
[Arthur and Camelot guards depart with dogs.]

--
[EXT. FOREST – DAY]
[Merlin lights a campfire with magic.]

MERLIN Forbearnan.

[Merlin hears distant telepathy...or at least a mishmash of dialogue from this episode.]

MERLIN
Hello?

AGLAIN’S VOICE
What would you like to know?

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, COUNCIL CHAMBER – DAY]
[Gaius enters. Uther is waiting.]

UTHER
Is there any word from Arthur?

GAIUS
No, Sire, not yet. But they haven't been gone long.

UTHER
Yes, of course.

GAIUS
Why are you so certain that she's been kidnapped?

UTHER
What other possibility is there?

GAIUS
She was very upset after the fire. She could've gone of her own accord.

UTHER
That's not Morgana. In all her years, I've never known her to run from anything. Takes after her father too much for that.

GAIUS
You haven't let Gorlois down. You've looked after that girl as if she were your own.

UTHER
That is what she's become. If she were to die, a huge part of me would die with her.

--
[INT. DRUID CAMP, MORGANA’S TENT – DAY]
[Aglain enters.]

AGLAIN
I trust you slept well?

MORGANA
Better than I've done in days.

AGLAIN
Here, this might make you feel more at home.

[Aglain hands here a druid cloak.]

--
[EXT. FOREST/DRUID CAMP – DAY]
[Arthur continues to pursue Merlin's trail with dogs. Merlin approaches druid camp. Aglain walks with Morgana.]

AGLAIN
They are surprised to see you here, if not a little afraid. Your king would have us killed.

MORGANA
They have nothing to fear from me. I do not share Uther's hatred of magic.

AGLAIN
No. I imagine you wouldn't. These forests are dangerous. What brings you so far from Camelot?

MORGANA
Searching for answers. I hope the druids might be able to give them to me.

AGLAIN
Come.

--
[EXT. FOREST – DAY]
[Arthur finds Merlin's campfire.]

ARTHUR
Keep moving! This way.

--
[EXT/INT. DRUID CAMP, MORGANA’S TENT – DAY]
[Merlin sneaks into the druid camp and listens in on Aglain's conversation with Morgana.]

AGLAIN
What would you like to know?

MORGANA
Why I can see the future in my dreams. Why I'm able to start fires with my mind.

AGLAIN
People who are able to do this are few and far between. You have a gift.

MORGANA
Is it magic?

AGLAIN
Of a kind, yes. But it will be many years before you're able to understand it fully, let alone use it. This isn't something to be afraid of.

MORGANA
It is if you have Uther as your guardian. If he found out, he'd have me killed.

AGLAIN
He won't.

MORGANA
But if he did...

AGLAIN
We won't let that happen. You're safe here. You shouldn't be scared of Uther. You should pity him.

MORGANA
Pity? Why?

AGLAIN
Because he's a broken man, consumed by fear. His hatred of magic has driven goodness from his heart.

MORGANA
I've always been taught that magic is evil, that it corrupts your soul.

AGLAIN
Uther told you this. Just because he decrees it, doesn't make it so. In time you will learn that magic isn't a dark art that must be shrouded in secrecy. It can be a force for good.

[Aglain leaves the tent.]

--
[EXT. FOREST – DAY]
[Arthur and the guards reach the woods near the druid camp and see the smoke from their fires.]

ARTHUR
Remember the King's orders! No prisoners!

--
[INT. DRUID CAMP, MORGANA’S TENT – DAY]
[Merlin enters.]

MORGANA
Merlin! What are you doing here?

MERLIN
I've come to take you back to Camelot.

MORGANA
Then I'm afraid you've had a wasted journey. I'm never going back.

MERLIN
You have to.

MORGANA
Why? You're the one who said I should seek out the druids.

MERLIN
I never realised what the repercussions would be.

MORGANA
What repercussions?

MERLIN
The King thinks you've been kidnapped.

--
[EXT. DRUID CAMP – DAY]
[Arthur and guards approach.]

--
[INT. DRUID CAMP, MORGANA'S TENT – DAY]

MERLIN
He won't stop until you're found. He's arrested dozens of people. He's gonna execute them all.

MORGANA
If I return, the same fate awaits me.

MERLIN
Uther doesn't need to know about this. I won't tell a soul.

[Arthur and guards.]

[Morgana's tent.]

MORGANA
I'm sorry. I'm never going back. These are my people. They're like me. I don't feel so alone here. Do you understand?

MERLIN
Better than anyone.

AGLAIN
Morgana, we must go. Who are you?

MORGANA
I--it's alright, he's a friend. What's wrong?

AGLAIN
Arthur and his men are coming. Your friend has led him straight to us.

[The druids run, trying to escape Arthur and the guards. Merlin sees Mordred.]

MORDRED (telepathy)
Hello Emrys.

[Arthur sees Mordred and Aglain helping the limping Morgana run off.]

ARTHUR
This way!

[Merlin runs with Mordred, Morgana, and Aglain.]

AGLAIN
We've got to keep moving!

MORGANA
My leg, it's too painful!

MERLIN
I'll try to create a diversion.

MORGANA
No, Merlin, you can't!

MERLIN
You carry on! It's my fault they're here! Go! Go!

MORGANA
I'll never forget this.

MERLIN Bene læg gesweorc.

[Merlin creates fog and sends it Arthur's way. Arthur pauses in the fog. Merlin runs above.]

ARTHUR
There!

[Arthur pursues Merlin. Merlin jumps and hides under protruding rock. Arthur and his men jump right over him. Merlin runs back. Guards spot Morgana's party anyway.]

GUARD
Over there!

[Morgana slumps to the ground.]

MORGANA
I can't go on.

AGLAIN
We're not leaving you behind.

MORGANA
Please.

[Morgana faints.]

MORDRED
They're coming!

[Aglain is shot with a crossbow. Mordred runs.]

GUARD
Prince Arthur! We have the Lady Morgana!

[Mordred runs, but is surrounded by guards. Merlin stops running and watches him kill throw 3 guards and run off.]

--
[EXT. KING’S PALACE, MAIN SQUARE – DAY]
[Arthur rides into the square with Morgana. Uther helps her down and Gwen comes to meet them while Uther embraces Morgana.]

UTHER
I was so, so worried about you.

ARTHUR
You were right. It was the druids. They kidnapped her.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, MORGANA’S CHAMBERS – NIGHT]
[Morgana lies on her bed fully clothed. Merlin knocks and Morgana goes to open the door.]

MORGANA
Merlin.

MERLIN
My Lady.

[Morgana lets him in and closes the door.]

MERLIN
I wanted to check you were ok.

MORGANA
I'm fine. What was said at the woods...

MERLIN
You can trust me, Morgana. I won't tell anyone.

MORGANA
Thank you, Merlin. I know now who I really am. And it isn't something to be scared of. Maybe one day people will come to see magic as a force for good.

MERLIN
Erm....It's good to have you back.

MORGANA
Thank you, Merlin.

[Morgana opens the door to let him out.]

MORGANA
Sleep well.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, GRIFFIN STAIRCASE – NIGHT]
[Arthur leans against the underside of the stairs as Merlin walks down from Morgana's Chambers.]

ARTHUR
This has to stop.

[Merlin turns around.]

ARTHUR
The King would have your head if he found out, and there's no point denying it.

MERLIN
Denying what?

ARTHUR
Your affections for the Lady Morgana.

MERLIN (chuckles)
Right.

ARTHUR
Take a bit of advice from someone who knows about women.

MERLIN
Well, if such a person existed, I would.

ARTHUR
Stick to girls who are more...how can I put it? On your level.

MERLIN
Thanks.

ARTHUR
She can't be her friend. Let alone anything else.

MERLIN
Yeah, I know.

ARTHUR
You can't hide anything from me, Merlin.

MERLIN (chuckles)
I wouldn't dream of it.

--
[INT. KING’S PALACE, PHYSICIAN'S CHAMBERS – NIGHT]
[Merlin enters.]

MERLIN
I'm sorry, Gaius.

[Gaius walks slowly to Merlin, then hugs him.]

MERLIN
I thought you'd be angry with me.

GAIUS
I was. Right up to the moment you walked in. Then I was just grateful that you're back safe and sound.

MERLIN
Morgana knows the truth. The druids told her she has magic, sorry.

GAIUS
It's not your fault, you were only doing what you thought was right.

MERLIN
We both were, what happens now?

GAIUS
You must take care of her. And hope that Uther never discovers the truth about her powers.
