Oh, come on you love it, or you wouldn’t be reading this. This press release was sent out today to all the tv film news affiliates.  It’s spells out a nice episode.



Ancient prophecies of Mordred weigh heavy on Merlin, for not even he can sway Arthur from his chosen path.

As dawn breaks across the icy tundra, Merlin and Arthur are close to exhaustion. With each tortured step, the fortress of Ismere looms ever nearer and Merlin‘s fear intensifies. What game is Mordred playing? And what powerful secrets are Morgana and the druid Ruadan (Liam Cunningham) searching for amongst its twisted catacombs? It seems like this time, not even Merlin can stop Arthur from walking right into the lion’s den… For in this bleak and transient wilderness, only one thing is certain: the great trial for Albion has finally begun.
