Uther and Igraine marry, as Igraine is convinced this will be best for the kingdom, and she gives birth to a boy: Arthur. Sir Tristram and Queen Iseult indulge in an adulterous relationship for years under the protection of Lancelot. As Tristram rises in greatness as one of the Knights of the Round Table, King Mark becomes worried and more jealous of Tristram. When Arthur woke, he was wondrously angry to find his scabbard gone.

I wish there was something I could do. Imagine if Nimueh wasn't capable of choosing who would die to save Arthur, that her role in this episode was solely to give Merlin the Cup of Life and warn him that the price for saving a life was that a life would be taken, but Merlin was able to do this, and had made the choice to murder Nimueh because he didn't like the price he would have to pay to save Arthur when it was his time to die. Structurally Mallory's work is repetitive and contains a questionable moral structure. Even after he finds out Arthur is still alive, he refuses to give up his position.

He did seconds later however when Arthur crushed their lips together in a desperate, demanding kiss. The Bishop of Canterbury blessed these knights and they gladly vowed to serve Arthur. The parley fails, war begins, and with the help of his magical sword Excalibur, gleaming in his enemies' eyes like twenty torches, Arthur routs his enemies. Gawaine and Gaheris fought the knights, but became overwhelmed after Gawaine was shot in the arm with an arrow.
Oh, and it aches me to say that. He swore vengeance on the women who tricked him, and prayed to God to save Arthur and Uriens. After the quests of Sir Gawaine, Sir Tor, and King Pellinore, it so happened that Merlin fell in love with Nimue, the damosel that Pellinore had rescued. Their individual devotions to their boons match only their devotion to each other which makes the resulting catastrophe nearly unbearable to witness. Everyone present agrees that Arthur is the proper king of England, and he is soon crowned king.
First he survives a mortl blast from a high priestess of old religion and then he summons magic to kill her. He asked him to heal Morgana with magic later. Before the series finale, the confirmed that the series was renewed for a further 13 episode second series. Some examples of foreshadowing include: Arthur was meant to bring peace to a fractured country; Mordred was meant to destroy his father's kingdom; and Galahad was destined to find the Sangreal.

Done — Merlin just disguises him as the other lad and sends him to her bedchamber.
To this tournament a knight of low station, Sir Ector, comes with his son Kay and the child Merlin placed in his care, Arthur. Arthur pushes Merlin out of the way and takes on the beast.
