Mordred finds himself torn between loyalty and love, but little does he realise that the path he chooses will shape Camelot's destiny.

As the drums of war beat ever louder, a desperate Merlin feels trapped by the cruel circle of fate - is he powerless to stop his dreams of Albion from crumbling to dust?

Colin Morgan is Merlin, Bradley James is Arthur, Angel Coulby is Gwen, Katie McGrath is Morgana, Richard Wilson is Gaius and John Hurt is the voice of the Great Dragon. Alexander Vlahos is Mordred, Tom Hopper, Rupert Young, and Eoin Macken return as The Knights of the Round Table.

Well. I guess this is the Mordred turns to Morgana episode. We all knew it was coming based upon the leaked audition video/script for episode 12/13. Since the synopsis says Mordred is torn between loyalty and love, i am going to surmise that his lady love has done something against Arthur/the crown which warrants torn loyalties. This is heck of a lot better than the rumor which was floating around of Arthur arbitrarily having the brunette female hung for having magic. If she has done something against Camelot/the crown, then her sentence is warranted given the time period they are living in.

I must say that I am disappointed that it appears that we are indeed going to go right to the fall of Camelot without ever having seen the creation of Albion. :-(

By the way, am I the only one who thinks this Mordred presumably turning against Arthur over the death of a loved one anticlimactic?

I'm hoping that's the case too. Having Arthur willy nilly execute someone just for having magic would be extremely regressive for his character. I hope that the show runners don't go there.

Drums of war - I knew it. Arthur is declaring all out war on Morgana for what she did to Gwen and Camelot, just like Uther did when he lost Ygraine. Innocent magical people are going to go down. Arthur's Bane is himself.

Hm... it sounds really interesting, but if Arthur just randomly executes the girl because she has magic without a real reason, it will go against everything prior in the build-up of his character. In 5x03, he did save the old sorceress because she was being burned for no reason, so I'm betting this girl did something directly against the crown. That would make Mordred's struggle much more interesting to watch.

No idea. And if they're going to do movies, they SERIOUSLY need to get their shit together. In the meantime, several of us are going to be lobbying HARD to get Bradley cast as the next James Bond. Because how awesome would that be?

You know it, KIM. I want him to be the next BOND after Daniel Craig. Time for all my babies to move on from this mess of a fandom and enter real life with normal people.

If that is the same girl from the Arthur's Bane episode she was supposed to die for treason before her father helped her to escape. Arthur would be carrying through with the punishment. Having magic would be in addition but not the root cause of the execution.

Though no matter the reason Mordred is a time bomb waiting to happen. When he woke up when he was supposed to die his destiny began. He is like an assassin after Arthur in the end. We can only hope he does not accomplish the goal.

I think Bradley is cute enough to be a James Bond but I would have to get my mind around him being that way. Though I do not think it is hard to do.
