In the episode 'Gates of Avalon', Gaius talks to Morgana about her being a seer, but this is never addressed by them again. When faced with the choice of either him or Merlin drinking poison to stop the curse, Arthur took the responsibility upon himself, refusing to let Merlin or Camelot die because of him. Although he died years ago, he appeared to Merlin- it was unspecified whether Taliesin had left a magical 'recording' of himself to pass on his message, had come forward in time from the past, or if this was merely his ghost- when Arthur was badly injured by an arrow, healing Arthur's wound and subsequently taking Merlinâwhom he referred to as 'Emrys'--to the Crystal Cave, where he showed Merlin the crystals, explaining that only a few rare individuals are able to use the crystals to see the future. Under the command of Morgana she is made to betray Arthur in the next episode. Morgana makes a full recovery and furiously reveals to Morgause that Uther is her father; whilst Morgana is repulsed, Morgause is pleased as it means Morgana has a legitimate claim to Camelot's throne. On a later occasion, Gaius was briefly reunited with his old fiancÃ©e, Alice, who had been forced to flee the kingdom due to Uther's prosecution of magic, but Merlin's discovery that she was under the influence of a manticore forced her to leave once again even after he and Gaius destroyed the manticore, although Gaius chose to stay behind in order to continue guiding Merlin. Arthur killed his son in single combat; he did not have a quarrel with the boy, but the other prince would not back down from the challenge.

Frais de notaire : pouvez-vous les négocier ? Over time, sadly, her growing fear that she has magic, as well as her increasing anger towards Uther's callousness, a distance from Arthur (possibly due to his growing close to her maid), the hostility of the Great Dragon toward her (that she is unaware of) and most importantly, the unwillingness of Merlin and Gaius to tell her the truth or give her any real help in understanding or controlling what's happening to her - all of which serves to leave her feeling increasingly isolated and alone- which enables Morgause and others to corrupt and use her - eventually; following a long period of isolation with Morgause (indicated to be about a year) sees her previous compassionate views warped and Morgana become fully committed to evil. Arthur disarms Olaf, but does not kill him, as that is not the way to make peace. When they got to the place where Merlin thought Agravaine had been going, they decided to split up.

Annis also saw Morgana for what she was far more astutely than most, proclaiming that she was far more like her father than she would care to admit.

Though Morgause was gone, her actions had far-reaching consequences. During the subsequent raid on Camelot, Gwaine and his other allies are knighted by Arthur around the Round Table in recognition of their service to Camelot, Gwaine commenting before the battle that, even if they have no chance of victory, he wouldn't miss this fight for anything. Morgause's immortal army, created using the Cup of Life, support Morganaâs tyrannical reign. Though she flirted with a plan to try and to kill Uther, in anger for his execution of her maid and friend Gwen's father, the blacksmith Tom (implicated in a plot of a group of rogue sorcerers, who want Uther dead)- she later abandoned them when Uther indicated to her that he was 'wrong' in his decision regarding Tom (though this seems to be more about Morgana and the late Gorlois, than his attitude regarding anything related to magic cases)- and she then killed Tauren, who led the attempt on the king. The dying sorcerer gives Arthur a coin from the Disir, interpreted as a judgement against Arthur. Gwaine was also part of the battle which never took place where Arthur defeated Caerleon's champion, creating peace between Arthur and Annis.
