In the previous season we saw that after returning to the kingdom, Merlin’s mom arranges his stay with court physician Gaius. He is a young at heart warlock. Treasure trove that the King of Camelot, Uther Pendragon, banned magic two years ago. And, imprisoned the Last Dragon below his fort to serve as a caution for the felons.
Very soon Merlin got to know about his inner voice. It then guides him about his fortune. Destiny proclaimed Merlin’s tasks to save Arthur. Later on, when Arthur faces the truth of his secrets, he turns into a mighty king.
Arthur is an innocent personality. Merlin is just a servant who saves his life. After their meet-up, they face adventures together. And thus, save the kingdom from the wicked souls.
