* TooDumbToLive: Dagr and Ebor. As two of the very few people lucky enough to survive a fight with Prince Arthur, do they ride off in search of easier pickings? No. Do they go on exploiting the same tavern, knowing that they can get safely away in the day it will take Prince Arthur's soldiers to get there? No. Do they threaten the villagers that anyone taking so much as a step in the direction of Camelot to send word for help will be disemboweled? No. Two guys whose whole resume consists of beating up defenseless villagers decide to assassinate the greatest warrior in the land. What could go wrong? And if they succeed, it will gain them precisely ''nothing'' - not even the revocation of the order to help the tavern keeper.

Elsewhere, Dagr from the tavern and one of his cohorts are buying artifacts known as the Stulorne blades from a nervous looking old man. Though they appear blunt, they're actually razor sharp. After recieving his money, the old man fetches two crystal necklaces and mutters a spell over them. They glow with power and he hands them over, stating that the wearer of the crystals will be able to take on the form of whoever's blood they touch. As soon as his back is turned, Dagr stabs him ([[{{Recap/MerlinS01E02Valiant}} Hmm, that seems familiar...]]) and tells Ebor that they're going to take their revenge on Prince Arthur of Camelot.

Arthur manages to talk Uther into settling for banishment instead of exeuction, and he's given until dawn to leave the city. Once they're on their own, Ethan worries that Merlin knows of their plan - but Oswald points out that a commoner can't accuse a knight.

Arthur manages to talk Uther into settling for banishment instead of exeuction, execution, and he's given until dawn to leave the city. Once they're on their own, Ethan worries that Merlin knows of their plan - but Oswald points out that a commoner can't accuse a knight.



Knowing that Arthur won't back out of the tournament, Merlin decides to keep a careful watch on the fighting and use his magic if necessary. As the day breaks on the day of the melee, Merlin gets Arthur's weapons organised. Uther brings Arthur the sword that he used to win ''his'' first melee, and reminds him that all of Camelot is eager for a victory. Elsewhere, Guinevere looks out over the people heading towards the tornament grounds with a worried look on her face.

The crowd stands and cheers as Uther joins Morgana in the royal box. Everyone takes a seat, including Gwen up in the stands. Two lines of knights get ready down either end of the field. Uther makes the signal, and the two sides gallop toward one another. The melee ensures, with knights getting thrown off their horses, dragged through the sand, and sword-fighting on foot. Merlin tries to keep track of what's happening, and watches as Arthur is pulled off his horse. Oswald nearly kills him as other kngihts are taken off the field in stretchers. Another rider enters the field and Merlin uses his magic to force him off his horse. Arthur and Oswald continue to battle and soon Arthur finds himself facing Ethan as well. At that moment, another competitor enters the field and backs up Arthur. No prizes for guessing who it is. Merlin notices Gwaine's trademark move (catching his opponent's sword) as he dispatches Oswald and Ethan. Finally Gwaine and Arthur come face to face.

Arthur takes off his helmet and concedes the field of battle to Gwaine. He removes his helmet and reveals his face to the crowd. Uther ain't happy, and orders Gwaine to be siezed.

* GenreSavvy: From Merlin at the beginning.
--> '''Merlin''': This is the part where I tell you something isn't a good idea and you ignore me, isn't it?

* IAmNotLeftHanded: Played with during the practice fight between Arthur and "Oswald". Arthur becomes suspicious at the fact that Oswald is using his right hand when he should be left handed, and Oswald claims to have been doing this trope. He then switches to his left hand, and is noticeably weaker and easily defeated by Arthur.

* OneSceneWonder: Mary, on account of her finding Merlin more attractive than Arthur.

** Dagr looks Merlin's way, who quickly turns his head, then whistles and [[ItGotWorse a crapload of Dagr's minions appear]]. Merlin's face says it all.
