Merlin realizes that Morgana has magic and that he needs to help her before anyone else realizes it, too. He agrees to give her illegal magic lessons on top of all the work he does for Arthur and chores he handles for Gaius.
Arthur hears rumors of something going on between Merlin and Morgana and isn't pleased.
To Merlin, it just seems like the prince is determined to monopolize his thoughts- as if he didn't already. With even more secrets to keep, Merlin is glad he knows how to juggle.
After a sudden encounter with Morgana, Merlin is severely injured, only managing to survive by calling the Great Dragon. However, he must return to Camelot still affected and somehow hide this from Arthur. But what's another secret on top of so many others?
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin, and the whole idea of how Merlin's blindness works is from TA Barron's Merlin series (which is amazing and everyone should read)
Pre-season 4 .When Morgause and Morgana got ahold of a spell that would make the most powerful being in Camelot the ruler and everyone would be forced to obey him/her -- well, let's just say their expectations plummeted down to the ground.
In the middle of some quest or another, Merlin, Arthur and the knights find themselves stuck in the middle of a shrine being told that, if they wish to proceed unharmed, they need only speak their true names and titles. Straight-forward enough, right?
Wrong. Merlin really hates the Old Religion sometimes.
"The king sent me to get you," Merlin said, with a tone that implied strongly that he wasn't rolling his eyes where Arthur could see, but just wait until his back was turned. "He said you're to get changed into formal clothes and meet him in the Great Hall, there's a delegation coming from the Summer Court."
