Synopsis released for two-part Merlin finale
Merlin is to face his moment of destiny in the last ever episode of the BBC fantasy show, due to air on the 29th of December...
Merlin's final outing on the BBC is set to straddle the Christmas period, with the first of its two-part finale broadcast on Saturday the 22nd of December, and the second the following weekend on Saturday the 29th. Though the episode titles have yet to be confirmed, the BBC has issued a couple of synopses hinting at what to expect from the end of the Arthurian family fantasy.
Episode 5.12 High in the mountains, a great horde gathers; Morgana prepares for war with a vengeful Mordred at her side. Merlin feels the weight of his destiny like never before as the ancient prophecies play out with terrifying accuracy. But before he can save his beloved Camelot, he must save himself. For it is not just the kingdom Morgana wishes to destroy – it is also Emrys.
Episode 5.13 And so it seems the Prophets did not lie. As the great battle rages on Camlann's mighty plain, Merlin faces his moment of destiny. Can he find the strength to save the man he made a King; the Camelot they fought to build; and the brotherhood they shared?
