Merlin: Series 5 Episode 8 Synopsis

Story details for the eighth episode of Merlin Series 5 have been revealed.

When Merlin agrees to help a young Druid boy, he has no choice but to leave Camelot on a dangerous mission.

And with the citadel distracted by the visit of the fearsome Sarrum of Amata, it seems that no one will notice his absence.

But as the sky darkens, so do Merlin’s suspicions – is there more to Daegal than meets the eye? And can a man as ruthless as the Sarrum ever really be trusted? Too late, the young warlock realises he’s made a terrible mistake.

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. Tom Hopper, Rupert Young, Eoin Macken and Adetomiwa Edun return as The Knights of the Round Table. Special guest stars include John Shrapnel as Sarrum, Matthew Clancy as Albin and Mitch Benn as Gerrin.

Episode 8 airs Saturday 24 November 2012 on BBC1.

      I agree. Every week!!

    Is it just me who feels the story lines are getting very, very repetitive?

    • Pdurston

      No it’s not just you, I feel the same. Nearly everything feels like it’s been recycled and many elements are starting feel repetitive:

      – Gauis still doesn’t trust Merlin’s instincts (which always prove to be right)
      – Arthur continually treats Merlin like a fool
      – Camelot’s always under siege
      – Slow-mo action sequences are used everytime
      – Merlin saves the day with some deux ex machina magic
      – Morgana’s become a stale, boring and one-dimensional villain through her overuse

      Etc, etc…

      I’ve been kind of underwhelmed with this series if I’m honest, with The Dark Tower being the only compelling episode so far. Nothing really seems to be developing, and the story arc is all over the place. The show doesn’t feel fun anymore and this series has done little to impress me. I wish the writers would finally dispose of Morgana and concentrate on the Mordred arc, which is the only factor that’s keeping me in invested in this series.

    I’m looking forward to this Merlin centric episode. I certainly hope it’ll be an episode in which Merlin will be given a real story about himself and about his development toward the powerful sorcerer of the Merlinian legends.

    Wait… ‘and Adetomiwa Edun return…’
    Elyan’s in this? Didn’t he die last week?
