The High Priestess swears to avenge Mordred's death. He did not discover her true allegiances, or the fact that she was actually his half-sister, until the penultimate episode, "The Coming of Arthur, Part One". The depth of Morgana's attachment to Morgause was shown when the latter was seriously injured by Merlin and Gaius since Morgana was visibly distraught, and her screams of anguish proved to be powerful enough to destroy the throne room walls. The dying king tells Merlin that he is thankful for everything he has done — something which Arthur had never said before. She sheltered him while guards searched the castle and tended to his wounds, sympathising with him as Uther's men hunted him. Soon, Elyan was put in the same cell with Gwaine and Gaius. Percival was one of Uther's target's when Uther was a spirit, taking vengeance on Arthur's 'bad choices'. Arthur asks Gwen, 'Would you do the honour of becoming my wife? Merlin hid it also to protect Arthur from himself: Merlin feared what Arthur would really think and do. You're not alone. Morgana annihilates enemy forces with a non-verbal lightning spell. She then sees Emrys, or rather Merlin disguised as Dragoon the Great, running past her, much to her horror. He was about to shoot Arthur but was interrupted when an armed guard passed by, looking for the assassin who had been sent after Arthur. Arthur sees this as an act of war and is forced to prevent Morgana from reaching anywhere near Camelot by choosing to meet her forces at Camlann, the battlefield where Arthur is destined to die. On the way to Ealdor, they encounter the smugglers Tristan and Isolde, and were eventually attacked by the pursuing Agravaine and his forces. After Uther is mortally wounded, Merlin decides to use magic as Dragoon to save him and prove to Arthur that it is not a force of evil, but his plan backfires when Morgana interferes. She is terrified of discovery when Uther hires a witchfinder to expose the last traces of magic and is desperate to keep her secret hidden. When Alvarr intended to ambush and kill the knights, Morgana was horrified and said he could not kill them all, commenting that he need only fight to escape, clearly worried about Arthur and the knights she knew to be good men. Uther is fatally stabbed, and in the ensuing days, a desperate Arthur even resorts to seeking magical intervention to heal his father. Then, that night, she has a dream in which she is surrounded by dead soldiers and is begging Emrys to help her. She also actively caused her father's death when she was informed that Arthur planned to use magic to save Uther by enchanting a necklace to reverse any healing spell and worsen the ailment tenfold. Although they easily overwhelm the Camelot soldiers at first, Merlin's return greatly shocks Morgana as she screams at him, and he attacks her and knocks her unconscious. Morgana and Mordred officially declare war at Camelot after they make sure Merlin cannot be a threat to their plans. When she visits Arthur to thank him for his kindness, she finds him doubting his father's love for him. When Morgana awakes in Camelot, she thinks the meeting with Morgause was only a dream, but as the day progresses and everyone around her begins to fall asleep, she hides in her chambers until Arthur and Merlin return. Morgana breathes her last breath there, and very soon her brother dies as well (The Diamond of the Day). Mordred's trademarks are his icy blue glare and green cloak. Arthur's Bane is real. After helping Merlin recover, the Dragon consoled him about Morgana's defection. After Morgana recovers, she and Agravaine arrange to have Gaius kidnapped in order to learn the identity of Emrys. Lancelot's life after leaving Camelot was not an easy one, and he was forced to sell his sword skills for the entertainment of others. All our secrets. At the end of Series 3, he is imprisoned by Morgana and tortured, but is eventually rescued by Arthur and his knights with Merlin. Gwen is sentenced to death and, seeing Morgana's cold smile on hearing her sentence, finally realises that she is behind it all. Caerleon was also very stubborn and proud as he refused to sign a peace treaty and appear weak, even when his life was threatened. When the mysterious hunter Julius Borden returned to Camelot to search for a dragon's egg, the Dragon warns Merlin to save it before Borden does any harm. She then stares at Merlin, threatening to expose him if he reveals her true colours (The Tears of Uther Pendragon). However, Merlin quickly discovers she is now in league with Morgause to have Uther and Arthur killed, only returning to Camelot as a spy. He and Sefa escape but Ruadan dies a few miles out of Camelot and Sefa runs off, her current whereabouts are unknown. Merlin himself admitted that the day Morgana would be as strong as him was not far. Manipulated by Agravaine, Arthur eventually discovered Lancelot and Gwen in a passionate embrace. As part of a quest to prove his worthiness to be King, Arthur chose to undertake a quest to enter the realm of the Fisher King and recover his trident, unaware that Morgana had given him an 'Eye of the Phoenix', a gem that drained the wearer's life-energy. When Arthur wins the tournament, he lets the farmer posing as 'Sir William' take the glory, as Arthur feels it is a time for humility. Later, it became clear to Merlin that they needed to get Arthur to safety. You're wrong. Knight Valiant (portrayed by Will Mellor) was a knight from the Western Isles, who came to Camelot to battle in the annual sword-fighting tournament. Arthur decides to beg for Mordred's life, and the Disir give him an ultimatum, saying that he must embrace the Old Ways. After this, the foretold alliance happens: Morgana forges a sword equivalent to Excalibur and hands it to Mordred, calling him her proudest warrior. Morgause attacks Merlin but Gaius intervenes and Merlin attacks her with magic, causing her to slam into a stone column and allowing Merlin to empty the cup to destroy the army. You're Arthur's servant, nothing more. Bodleian Libraries. They were separated again when Morgana had to return to Camelot, but Kilgharrah warned Merlin that Morgana and Mordred shared a destiny and would one day form a dark alliance against Camelot (The Witch's Quickening). Morgana, desperate to remove the last obstacle to the throne, leads a troop of her men in hot pursuit. King Alined used magic to make Arthur and Vivian fall in love. Myror took the place of Arthur's opponent in the joust, and Merlin had to use his magic to loosen the strap on his horse's saddle in order to save Arthur. Arthur chose to let the fake "knight," who had secured Arthur's place in the final, take the glory. Despite the warning, Merlin eventually helps Morgana in a plan for Arthur to escape with the boy. Some time later, he took Morgana, the supposedly orphaned daughter of his close friends Gorlois and Vivianne to raise as his ward alongside Arthur. Morgana has been shown to have formed a bond with Mordred, whom Kilgharrah has foreseen would kill Arthur before Mordred betrayed her to Arthur, and she also formed a close bond with the young dragon, Aithusa, who saved her life. Soon, Morgana learns that Emrys means to free Gwen from her magical control and she attempts to stop Arthur and Merlin from cleansing Gwen's spirit of Morgana's evil. Morgana thanks Merlin for what he did for her, saying her experience has taught her not to fear her powers, though she still realises the danger in exposing them. In exchange for teaching Merlin a powerful spell, the Dragon forces Merlin to promise that he will one day be freed. Then, while Uther was incapacitated, Morgause invaded Camelot with the army of her ally, Cenred, a king of a neighboring kingdom. Through Gaius, Merlin gives up the location of the camp and Uther sends Arthur and his men to retrieve the crystal and kill Alvarr's men, forcing Morgana to ride to the camp ahead of them and give Alvarr warning. Before the three travelers could reach Camelot, however, they were attacked by soldiers of Cenred, and Balinor sacrificed his life to save Merlin, dying in his son's arms. During the fight, Morgana enchants Arthur's sword, multiplying its weight and making it nearly unbearable. She assuaged the youth’s fears and made him keep it a secret on promises to restrain her treachery. However, Gaius finds Gwen and saves her before the Dorocha can kill her. Gwen is at first smitten by him, but their friendship soon becomes platonic. He was only stopped when Merlin intervened, who tearfully claimed that Morgause had been lying and faked the story. Merlin eventually saves the egg and hatches it, naming the new dragon Aithusa. She trusts Merlin to keep her secret safe, which he does- however, later on, all three resident magic-users are scared to the bone when Uther hires Aredian, the most feared Witchfinder to detect any and all sorcerers in Camelot, when someone reports that they witnessed magic (performed by Merlin). Following Morgana's attempted coup of Camelot, Leon continues to defy her 'request' for him to recognise her authority until Gwen is able to help him escape, the two meeting Arthur in the cave he was using as his hiding-place. Morgana is one or two years younger than Arthur, as Uther says that she wasn't there 20 years ago, referring to the death of his wife Ygraine after Arthur's birth. Isolde fights with a bandit behind her and it results in a slash in her arm. Anhora later stated that when Arthur showed true remorse for killing the unicorn, proving himself pure of heart, the unicorn that had been killed at the start of the episode was given the chance to live again. Morgana suspected that the trial was a formality and Uther planned to have Tom executed anyway just to make an example of him. She causes Uther to lose his mind and when Merlin discovers her and Morgause's alliance they attempt to kill him. As they make camp, Arthur reveals his plan to sneak into the castle through tunnels known only to Uther and a few others of the royal court. To Merlin, Kilgharrah says that "in Albion's (United Kingdom) greatest need Arthur will rise again to fulfill his destiny", then Kilgharrah flies off and is not seen again. When Merlin was injured protecting Arthur, he volunteered to take the wounded man back to Camelot while Arthur and the others continued with the quest. Continuing with his story that he had left Camelot before the tournament, he pretended to have killed Myror during an ambush on the way back. However, Merlin only loves her platonically, and Series 2 sees them as good friends with Merlin seen to be a strong advocator in her blossoming relationship with Arthur. She described it as seeing "nothing but darkness" (Arthur's Bane:Part One). When Uther's soldiers killed Gwen's father, Tom, Morgana was enraged on her behalf to the extent where she participated in a plot to kill the King, but later changed her mind. It is revealed in the episode "Excalibur", and through interviews with Michelle Ryan, that Nimueh was once the personal witch of the Pendragon family, and was called upon to help Uther's queen conceive. He returns in "The Witch's Quickening" when he, allied with a group of renegades, seeks an ancient crystal with the ability to show the future, but he is forced to flee when the bandits are discovered. However, in the process, he was shot dead by one of Arthur's men. When Helios reported that Kilgharrah had killed all of Agravaine's men, Morgana asked about his well being and when she learnt of his death, she was clearly shaken, whether because she was mourning his death, or because she was simply afraid for herself (The Sword in the Stone). She later discovered she was the result of Uther's betrayal of Gorlois in having an affair with Vivienne, which was revealed when she overheard Uther's confession of her true parentage. She also quickly defeated Guinevere in a sword fight despite being wounded at the time (The Sword in the Stone). She uses Aithusa's breath to forge a sword for her proudest warrior, Mordred, so he can kill Arthur with it. Uther suspects nothing (The Crystal Cave). During the time in which Arthur is to be forced into marrying a princess, Morgana notices that he and Gwen have fallen in love (The Changeling). Merlin put her body on a boat and gave her a Viking-like funeral, clearly mourning his inability to save her. They then return with Morgana to Camelot, and Gaius orders Uther to allow her to rest. Gwaine regularly fought against Morgana's soldiers to obtain food for Gaius, whilst Elyan cared for him. Arthur killed his son in single combat; he did not have a quarrel with the boy, but the other prince would not back down from the challenge. He and Merlin fought fiercely together, and Lancelot was eventually wounded in the chamber that housed the Cup. The next few episodes after "Lancelot du Lac" saw Arthur visibly saddened by the loss of Gwen, but also firmer and sometimes even cruel. In the episode "The Castle of Fyrien", when she was faced with the decision of having to trade Arthur for her brother, Elyan, who had been kidnapped by Morgause and Cenred, Arthur set out to help her rescue him along with Merlin and Morgana, the latter of whom was actually in on the plan. Arthur's stance on the subject of magic was also explored in the second season. Although she is ruthless towards her past friends, her affection for Mordred has not faded away, as she shows genuine affection and relief when she finds out he is alive. When his family was killed by bandits, he swore to become a skilled swordsman to fight against tyranny and save other families from suffering the same fate as his own. The third series begins one year later; Morgana is finally found. Morgana's initial agreement was solely for Mordred's sake, as she wanted Alvarr to get the boy out of Camelot before they were caught, and when she delivered the crystal to their camp Mordred ran to embrace her. His wife, Ygraine, was unable to conceive, so Uther made a magical deal so she could bear him a son; however, the enchantment cost Ygraine her life. When he summons Kilgharrah in the tenth episode, the dragon appears visibly injured as he helps Merlin evade Morgana. She instructs Agravaine to help her find and destroy Emrys. Enemies: Though upset by his rejection, Mithian accepted Arthur's compromise of Camelot giving up their claims over the disputed lands between their two kingdoms. Thereafter, Ewain thwarted Morgan’s attempt to murder her husband King Uriens.

There's a bond between us. Mordred allies himself with Morgana by revealing to her the true identity of Emrys: Merlin. When Merlin survives Morgana forces his silence about their plans by threatening to tell Uther that he poisoned the king's beloved ward. Ironically, while Morgana eliminates one persecutor of magic from the throne, she therefore also helps to bring about a second by cementing Arthur's distrust of it. This nature has arguably not disappeared due to the melancholy she sometimes showed and she does at times reveal a vulnerable side of herself, such as her shock and hurt on hearing of Agravaine's death, her deep conflict at seeing Arthur again, her fear at being rendered powerless and her elation at being healed by Aithusa. However, Morgana proves to be both beautiful and capable; she is also fiery and independent and will not hesitate to stand up to Uther, despite his being her guardian. Balinor is killed as they return home, but Merlin inherits his abilities and tames the Great Dragon, forcing it to end its rampage. The "Queen of Hearts" episode is purely about Arthur's love for Gwen. In the next-to-last episode, "The Coming of Arthur, Part One", Arthur was sent on a mission to retrieve the Cup of Life from the Druids, unaware that Morgana and Morgause also sought it to use against Camelot. From this point, Morgana makes it her mission to kill Arthur to make her the sole heir to Uther's throne. As a matter of fact, she felt great pleasure in tormenting Uther with a mandrake root, a magical tool that brings the most tormenting thoughts and emotions of the victim to the surface. And just because I'm the King's ward, that doesn't mean I have to accompany him to the feast, does it? Presumably in the years that followed, Lancelot traveled throughout Albion. He is killed in the process. Morgana did not heed Morgause's advice and tried to murder Uther in his bed, and was barely prevented from doing so by Merlin. Morgana's dreams (which she's said to have had since she was very young) are, in fact, visions- her nightmares presaged several events, that Merlin and Gaius were able to use in order to prevent the things seen by Morgana (like Arthur's death) from coming to pass. Morgana later begins to have dreams about Gwen becoming Queen of Camelot. Morgana enchants Lancelot's "present" for Guinevere. Despite being motivated by her disagreement with Uther's tyrannical regime, Morgana herself lapses into a reign of cruelty during the times she rules Camelot to gain the allegiance of the people, such as executing innocent people in her first reign, and threatening to burn peasants' crops in her second reign. Morgana resisted attending this celebration, expressing to Uther her sympathy for Mary Collins and her abhorrence for the Great Purge because of the lives taken to accomplish Uther's endeavour to eliminate magic from Camelot. The mysterious creature becomes Merlin's mentor in magic, telling he is destined to be Arthur's protector as he unites the land of Albion.
