Merlin Lancelot du Lac teasers

CultFix have posted 15 teasers for tomorrow's episode of Merlin:

“We all have our secrets and, unfortunately for Guinevere, I know hers… I know exactly how to destroy her!”

A gift from Morgause proves incredibly useful for Morgana

“My name is Lancelot and I am ***** to *******”

“You are her ***** ****… and you will be her last”

Lancelot should really know about that little detail!

Gwen should not have accepted that present…

Since returning from the veil, Lancelot is a shadow of his former self

“Chicken is good; nice broth; what do you know about necromancy?”

Lancelot knocks out a close friend and it’s not Arthur

“Adultery in noble families was punishable by death”

“I couldn’t stop myself. I don’t know why!”

“It’s Gwen who must pay the price”

Lancelot and Arthur come to serious blows more than once

Someone meets their maker

Remember to bring tissues because there’s no happy ending and events will have lasting consequences. And you’ll really hate Morgana and Agravaine!

Merlin Episodes 12&13 synopsises

The synopsises for the final two episode of Merlin (The finale airing Chirstmas eve!) have been released by CultBox:

Episode 12:

With Morgana at the head of a vast Southron army, a deadly net is closing in around Camelot. When the sorceress strikes, the ferocity of her attack forces everyone to run for their lives - even Arthur. But Morgana won't let him escape that easily. And so begins a chilling hunt.

Can Merlin save the King from Morgana's clutches? Or has Arthur's luck finally run out?

Episode 13:

Morgana and Helios have successfully captured Camelot, and Merlin and Arthur are outlaws on the run. Trapped in Ealdor with a ruthless army closing in, their situation becomes desperate.

Arthur must take control before Camelot is lost forever. But faced with Agravaine's betrayal and the strength of Morgana's force, the young King has lost his conviction.

Only Merlin can restore his faith, and only an extraordinary act can prove to the King that he was born to rule. Will the young warlock convince Arthur before his dreams of Albion fall to pieces?

CultFix have posted 15 teasers for tomorrow's Merlin, Lamia

There’s no evil scheming from Morgana this week, but Agravaine is doing his best to make up for it

Merlin is appointed ‘Acting Physician’

“Merlin is right. This is no ordinary illness, there is sorcery at work here”

Gwen gets a big adventure outside the castle

“You are not a knight! You are not even a physician. You’re nothing but a servant!”

Sir Leon and Gwaine get into a sword fight, with one left wounded

“The Knights are like brothers, yet they fight and quarrel like foes”

Elyan will never kiss a girl again…but he’s not the only one

“They took the blood from a **** and mingled it with that of a *******”

Gwen’s tunic comes in very handy

“If he doesn’t get some help soon, he’s not going to make it”

Gwen doesn’t realise how close she is to learning Merlin’s secret

“You won’t find me such easy prey!”

Someone falls on a sword, literally

Who knew Gwen was so tough! Well, Arthur won’t let them hear the end of it
