Whilst out riding, Guinevere and Morgana are captured by the brigand Hengist's men, their escort slain. Morgana escapes but Guinevere is caught and a ransom demanded. Morgana is appalled when the heartless Uther refuses ransom. Arthur and Merlin set out to rescue her; however, Lancelot, now a travelling swordsman for money, is already at Hengist's castle, where he and Guinevere declare their love for each other. He attempts to save her but it is Arthur and Merlin - and Merlin's magic - who get them both out. Lancelot, realising that Arthur also loves Guinevere, slips away having told Merlin that Guinevere has changed him forever.

Did You Know?
Gwen is actually short for Guinevere yet she was never called by that name in the original legend ever.Her real full name in Welsh was Gwyneth, Gwynifred or Gwendolyn, varied from story to story, which also explains her nickname: Gwen on the TV series. See more
During the scene where Lancelot and Guinevere are tied up in the cage and the captors are feasting, several twelve-ounce aluminum cans are on the table. See more
What are you doing Merlin?
I must have fallen asleep. Uh, I'm exhausted. I can barely keep my eyes open.

Thank you. I feel so much better.
