Full Plot

In his determination to rule magic out of Camelot forever, Uther hires the services of Aredian, a terrifying witch hunter who is most feared due to the fact that he stops at nothing in the quest to uncover all and every kind of sorcery. Even though no one is under direct suspicion, several people in Camelot are afraid that the witch hunter could see straight through them: Morgana is worried that Uther might have her executed and Gaius is concerned for the fate of Merlin and his own, since caring for the young warlock is considered crime and treason. Will all three be able to escape a dreadful fate? Anonymous When an hysterical woman reports seeing a magic trick of Merlin's, Pendragon sends for Aredian, a corrupt witch-finder, who is paid to expose witches, be they guilty or innocent. He produces three witnesses who have allegedly seen evidence of sorcery before arresting Gaius, who has taken the blame for possessing a 'magic' amulet that Aredian has planted in Merlin's belongings. Merlin enlists Guinevere's help in proving that the so-called witnesses were drugged to make them hallucinate and imagine that they saw witchcraft before literally giving Aredian a taste of his own medicine. A freed Gaius rounds on Pendragon for his paranoia in indiscriminately pronouncing magic to be only bad. don @ minifie-1 Plot not found
