Detailed Synopsis

Morgan is practicing her transformation into Queen Igraine while in the tub and as she is bathing, Harwel is standing outside the door peeping at her and masturbating. Morgan catches him and he tells her that he loves her and he'll do anything for her. She brings him to the dining area and has him tell Sybil his name and that he will do anything for her. Morgan then tells Vivian to get him prepared. Morgan asks Sybil if everything is prepared and tells her that King Arthur will come for the feast. As Arthur, Kay, Igraine, Merlin, Guinevere, Leontes, Gawain, Brastias, Ulfius, and Bridget are riding to Morgan's castle, Kay reminds Arthur that Morgan was aligned with King Lot, who killed Ector and Arthur's Foster Mother. Arthur tells him that Morgan warned them of Lot's impending attack and they must mend wounds. When they arrive, Morgan greets Arthur and Igraine, who she apologizes to. During the feast Arthur's men get drunk and Morgan offers her love and devotion to Arthur. Igraine doesn't believe Morgan's words and tells Merlin that Morgan covets Arthur's throne.

Dancers start dancing in front of the group and at the end of the dance stick swords in front of the diners. The Dancers leave with most of Arthur's men except, Arthur himself, and Leontes. After dinner, Morgan tells Sybil to give the signal. Merlin questions Morgan about Sybil, and Morgan tells him that she has changed her ways. Gawain goes back to watch over Arthur and the castle suddenly is attacked by flaming arrows. A Girl is surrounded by flames and Arthur goes to save her. Merlin grabs Morgan's Captain and tells him to ready the defenses. Everyone gathers for a meeting and Morgan wonders who is attacking her and Merlin thinks Aldwulf, a warrior king from the east might be behind the attack. Kay sends a group of Morgan's soldiers as scouts to look for Ardwulf's forces. Igraine tells Guinevere and Bridget to be calm. Gawain gets Morgan's forces ready and Guinevere asks Leontes if her and Bridget can help. Morgan and Guinevere debate about love and Morgan asks her how she feels about Arthur. Merlin questions Sybil about why she is at the castle. Harwel, who was part of the scouting group, returns wounded and says that Aldwulf is preparing to attack.

Morgan sends some of her soldiers out of the castle, leaving even fewer people to defend the castle. Guinevere offers to fight and Brastias and the other warriors help her, Bridget and the Dancers how to fight. Sybil tells Morgan that Merlin was asking her questions. Gawain is about to leave when Leontes orders him to stay, they start fighting, but are stopped by Arthur. Merlin tells Igraine that Morgan killed King Uther. Leontes tells Gawain that during a battle he killed a boy and later asked God for forgiveness. Morgan overhears Arthur tell Guinevere that he loves her. As they sit in a circle, Sybil tells Morgan that Leontes loves Guinevere more than life itself and Morgan says that Camelot rests on Arthur's honor. Vivian tells them that they all confide in Igraine. In the morning, Morgan's Captain returns and says that they defeated Aldwulf's men. Sybil tells Harwel to recruit some men to attack the outpost at Bardon Pass. Arthur and the others ride back to Camelot and Sybil brings food to a chained up Igraine, revealing the one riding with Arthur is really Morgan.
