Things get weird on Lancelot's journey to become a knight of the Round Table...if Merlin trying to pick up a twelve-year-old last week wasn't strange enough. This week has ancient prophecies, a dangerous quest, a father and son stalker duo, kind of too much hair-smelling, and a sleazy innkeeper. Arthur has a particularly bad month, where his two closest friends turn in their resignations.
The creature this week will protect your kids...by kidnapping them?

I’ve really enjoyed this variation of the King Arthurian legend. I understand that you’re going for the original version of the stories, but I find Howard Pyle’s interpretation of Merlin & Vivienne’s relationship more sensible. You might know it, but just in case, in this version, Vivienne is an apprentice to Morgana le Fay. Morgana, having a grudge against Arthur and Merlin, wants to kill Merlin because his power is what’s keeping Arthur alive (mostly) but doesn’t know how or else she’d have done it herself long ago. She can’t approach Merlin without raising suspicion, so tasks Vivenne (not any sort of Lake Lady, just a power-hungry girl) because he doesn’t know her. Vivienne goes to King Arthur’s court one day to present a ring that will only fit one worthy for it. King Arthur and the knights try the ring but it won’t fit. Merlin tries it on and it fits perfectly, but now it can’t come off. He also finds himself strangely and suddenly attracted to Vivienne, unaware that the ring was enchanted with a love spell for Merlin specifically. He teaches her advanced magic that Morgana didn’t know, and soon Vivienne learns the way to rid Merlin, since he feels compelled (by the ring’s love spell) to teach her. That method includes locking Merlin in a tree and sealing with a spell only Merlin knew. Merlin’s prophetic visions only work some of the time which is why he did not foresee the trickery but saw his death in a tree.
