Merlin: The Eye of the Phoenix
Here is the official Merlin synopsis for the eighth episode of Series 3 entitled The Eye of the Phoenix. Gwaine is back and Morgana is still being evil.
Arthur embarks on a solitary quest to retrieve the Golden Trident from the Fisher King and prove himself worthy of the Camelot throne, as the fantasy drama continues.
With the Prince beyond the protection of the citadel, Morgana sees an opportunity to use her dark magic and gives him a precious bracelet containing a Phoenix Eye. She insists he wears it at all times for protection but it saps him of his life force and he is left defenceless in the Fisher King’s perilous realm.
With the help of Gwaine, can Merlin reach him in time and fulfil his own quest to protect the future king of Camelot?
Bradley James plays Arthur, Donald Sumpter plays The Fisher King, Katie McGrath plays Morgana, Eoin Macken plays Gwaine and Colin Morgan plays Merlin.
