Gwaine is lying bruised and battered on the floor of the mines, when something with long glowing hands approaches him and begins to chant. It appears to be a [[Film/{{Coneheads}} shiny miniature Conehead]]. Or possibly a [[TheLordOfTheRings naked alien Gollum]]. Either way, Gwaine's wounds begin to heal.

* ShoutOut: Morgana in her winter furs and sleigh is highly reminiscent of the White Witch in ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'', whilst the scene in which Merlin and Arthur hide from Morgana beneath the roots of a tree is staged almost identically to the scene in ''TheLordOfTheRings'' when the hobbits hide from the Ringwraiths.

Arthur announces to those seated at the Round Table that he's just had news from the north. Gwaine and a patrol of Camelot knights have gone missing on their way to Ismere, a dark tower in the midst of a snowy wasteland. Despite search parties being sent out, there is no sign of them. However, a FlashBack clues us in on what really happened: a BigBadassWolf chased him down and (somehow) knocked him unconscious. It howls to the sky and a dark figure approaches. It's Morgana.

* BigBadassWolf: Three of them guard the fortress of Ismere.



* ImpliedLoveInterest: Sefa to Merlin. It's a bit of a RedHerring to disguise her true loyalties.

* MauveShirt: Sir Leon, as usual. Admit it, when you saw Ruadan injure him in battle you thought TheWorfEffect had kicked in and that Leon would be [[KilledOffForReal killed off]] for ''real'' this time. [[spoiler:He wasn't]].

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Played with in regards to Guinevere, who appears as Queen for the first time and took some viewers by surprise by her rather cold sentencing of Sefa. [[spoiler:Turns out it was just a bluff]].
