Episode Synopsis: As the great battle rages on Camlann’s mighty plain, Merlin faces his moment of destiny. Can he find the strength to save the man he made a king, the Camelot they fought to build, and the brotherhood they shared? Show Summmary: For a young wizard like Merlin, survival in a kingdom where magic is banned is no mean feat. Not when you are Prince Arthur’s servant and have to protect the city of Camelot from terrifying enemies.

Don’t see the relevance of the old Merlin walking by as a truck passes in the end. I aslo cannot see how the series could have continued to season six after this ending. It was sad though as fans expected more from Merlin and Arthur before it ended. It would have been great if Merlin had revealed his true identity to Arthur several episodes earlier and not in the last episode. There is mention of a spin off of three movies from this Merlin series. Hope the plot and the ending can be better. Tess ditto i as saddened by the ending I am assuming the truck passing by means Old Merlin is still waiting for arthur to rise as the dragon said http://www.facebook.com/criticalmyth John Keegan Once and Future King. Merlin is eternal, thus waiting for the return of the King in the hour of Britain’s greatest need. They pretty much laid it out right there in the ep… wendy the final episode realy suck!! i hate it!! if they want to cancel please dont make a sucky ending!! just when i got excited that finally Arthur know Merlin has magic and finally realized that hes been helping/saved his life lotss of times and then as i hope i can now finally see a real story about merlin the great sorcere as everybody knew, and the it just ended with Arthur dead and merlin walk in the future?? WTF are they thinking?? this suckk so bad!! I REALLY dont mind if they want to End Merlin but come On!! the ending just really pissed me off!!, btw the should’ve started to made the story about Merlin reveal his true identity at least at season 4 and then for the resr of season 4 and 5 we would at least be satisfied that we know that Arthur had great true frienship with Merlin without any secrets… ARGHH this ending pisses me off!! rose I agree 100%! jade Can’t believe I finally found a fantasy show I absolutely LOVED, only to NEVER SEE IT AGAIN!! WHAT’S UP WITH THAT BBC?? PLEASE BRING THE SHOW BACK!! I was waiting on their daughter to be born!! I just knew this show would be around for MANY, MANY YEARS TO COME, it was just THAT GOOD! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE BRING IT BACK!! Nic They altered the story line enough so that there was no affair between Lancelot and Guinivere. Why could they not have altered it for a better ending? This sucked so hard that the sides of my TV imploded. Leave Guin as queen? Merlin could have called the dragon from the beginning. It made no sense. Merlin suddenly becomes the living embodiment of magic to its full potential and lives centuries after Arthur’s death beyond any natural man’s life span, but he couldn’t get a fragment of a blade out of Arthur’s chest? BOO BOO BOO! Heck the dragon could have taken the blade fragment out. There were so many different possibilities left open. The ending was forced because Arthur had to die. He was king for a year. The final battle was rushed. This was forced perhaps worse than the love scenes between Anakin Skywalker and Padme. BLAH! Rose Buuuhuuu ending, I agree 100%!
