Plot Overview

In Camelot, Merlin spearheads a mission to reunite the dagger with Excalibur so he can use the weapon to save Emma from the darkness threatening her soul, but in order to do so, Merlin must confront an ancient nemesis to retrieve the sacred spark he’ll need to reforge Excalibur. With Zelena in tow, Hook, Mary Margaret, David, Regina and Robin break into Arthur’s castle to steal the broken sword from the maniacal king. In a flashback to a time long before the Age of Arthur, a young Merlin finds purpose after he is blessed with magic and immortality, but when he falls in love with a young refugee named Nimue, everything changes for Merlin, as their romance starts a chain of events that will affect every one of our present day heroes.
