Merlin: Series 5 “Arthur’s Bane: Part 2” Synopsis
Story details for the second episode of Merlin Series 5 have been revealed. It continues with the conclusion of the opening two-parter, Arthur’s Bane.
Ancient prophecies of Mordred weigh heavy on Merlin, for not even he can sway Arthur from his chosen path.
As dawn breaks across the icy tundra, Merlin and Arthur are close to exhaustion. With each tortured step, the fortress of Ismere looms ever nearer and Merlin’s fear intensifies. What game is Mordred playing? And what powerful secrets are Morgana and the druid Ruadan (Liam Cunningham) searching for amongst its twisted catacombs? It seems like this time, not even Merlin can stop Arthur from walking right into the lion’s den… For in this bleak and transient wilderness, only one thing is certain: the great trial for Albion has finally begun.
