Detailed Synopsis

Morgan disguised as Queen Igraine is taking a bath, while the real Igraine is getting forcibly cleaned by Sybil. Sybil chains Igraine up and then locks the door. Morgan practices saying good morning and Merlin knocks on her door and brings her food. Sybil asks Vivian how absolute her loyalty is to Morgan and then tells her that Morgan asked that she follow Sybil's requests without question. She tells her that Morgan is at Camelot and then shows her Igraine chained up. Igraine asks Vivian to help her, but Vivian walks away. As she is walking through Camelot, Leontes says hello to Morgan and a Servant asks Morgan where she wants her to put some blankets. Bridget tells her that she put her shawl back. Morgan walks up to King Arthur and he thanks her for her support during the supposed attack at Morgan's Castle. She then watches as Arthur and Guinevere talk and Arthur tells Guinevere that he meant what he said at Castle Pendragon. Redwald calls out to Morgan and tells her that he has been waiting for her and takes her to play toys with him. He tells her that when he gets older they will get married. Sybil tells Igraine that her own decisions have brought her to her current state. She calls Igraine a whore who sired a bastard and Igraine grabs Sybil with the chains and starts to choke her. Sybil calls for help and Donal threatens to kill Igraine if she doesn't release Sybil. Sybil is released and she tells Donal not to talk to Igraine.

While Arthur, Kay, Gawain, Leontes, Brastias and Ulfius are riding, Brastias tells them one of the Dancers told him that she would visit him. They separate into two groups to go hunting and decide to have a competition on what group catches more food. Morgan goes to Merlin's room and asks him what his plans are for Morgan. She asks him if he is attracted to Morgan and she tells him that King Uther beat Morgan when she returned from the monastery. He says that Igraine is twice the woman Morgan is and then asks her if she brought the food. Arthur and Leontes shoot come pheasants, while Gawain, Brastias and Ulfius catch a stag. Morgan brings Redwald to Merlin's room and Merlin tells him that since no one knows when Redwald's birthday is, they will celebrate it that day. Merlin gives Redwald a leather armor set that fits him and little toy soldiers. Arthur and his group discuss having a representative from each villager that can represent their village's cause to Camelot. While standing outside a balcony, Morgan asks Merlin what he thinks of Igraine. She tells him that she wants him, but Merlin pulls away from her.

During the night, Leontes is woken up by a large snarling wolf. He pulls out his sword and the wolf disappears. As Morgan is walking through the castle, her face starts to change, Redwald sees her and asks her why her face changed. He starts to leave to get help from Merlin when Morgan grabs him and Redwald falls to his death from the balcony. In the morning, Leontes tells the others about the wolf and tells them that the wolf spared him, because it has a purpose for him. Morgan shows Merlin the body of Redwald and Merllin notices Redwald's sleeve is torn. He tells Morgan that there is no redemption for someone who kills a child. Igraine asks Donal for help and he offers to help her if she has sex with him. While Morgan and Guinevere are preparing Redwald's body, Morgan asks her what happened between her and Arthur. Guinevere admits to her that she did cheat with Arthur on her wedding day. As Donal is having sex with Igraine, she takes his knife and stabs him in the back and kills him. As Leontes is praying, Morgan reveals to him that Guinevere and Arthur had an affair. While Igraine is escaping, Vivian sees her, but lets her escape. When Morgan returns to Igraine's room, Merlin is waiting and they have sex. Morgan sets Redwald's toy castle on fire and as Igraine runs through Camelot, she sees Morgan who tells her good morning.
