==Synopsis==
 
 
[[Merlin]] must continue in his destiny to protect [[Camelot]] and the young Prince [[Arthur]] using his special gift: magic. But [[King Uther]] has banned the practice of sorcery and [[Merlin]] must keep his talents secret on pain of death.
 
 
As many dangers threaten the mythic city, [[Arthur]] must show great courage and skill in order to defend the kingdom, with [[Merlin]] at his side.
 
 
[[File:Merlin_pic_2.jpg|thumb|left]]
 
 
[[Gaius]], the court physician, continues to provide [[Merlin]] with help and guidance. [[Gwen]] is as ever a stalwart friend to [[Merlin]], helping where she can in his adventures with [[Arthur]].
 
 
Meanwhile [[Morgana]], the king's ward, is increasingly troubled by her dreams. And the [[Great Dragon]] remains beneath the castle paying close attention to the adventures of our young wizard. [[Lancelot]] also returns in this series.<ref>[http://www.shine.tv/#/Programmes/1129/ Merlin Series 2]</ref>
 
 
==Major events==
 
*[[Cornelius Sigan]], the most powerful sorcerer to ever have lived, capable of even changing the state of day, possesses a thief who threatens Merlin's job as Arthur's manservant.
 
*Merlin makes his first promise to [[Kilgharrah]] (The Great Dragon) that he will one day free him, and does so in the finale, in which Kilgharrah attacks Camelot.
 
*Merlin is revealed to be the last remaining [[Dragonlord]]. He inherits the ability from his father, [[Balinor]], who dies not long after Merlin meets him for the first time ever.
 
*[[King Odin]] appears for the first time, who later causes the death of Uther in [[Series 4]] and organises several other attacks through [[Series 3]] and [[Series 4]] on Camelot.
 
*[[Mordred]] returns in two episodes. A new enemy in league with Mordred, [[Alvarr]], capable of immense charm and shocking violence, makes an appearance and is later captured by Uther, but freed by Morgana, who is then threatened with death by Uther.
 
*Morgana discovers she is not alone and her powers are not for evil when she stays at a [[druid]] camp which is later raided by a squad from Camelot. Mordred escapes and swears to Merlin he will not forget what happens, suggesting a [[Series 5|future]] enemy.
 
*The first and only two-parter in the series: [[Beauty and the Beast]] in which Uther is enchanted by a [[troll]] makes its debut.
 
*[[Gaius]] is imprisoned for the first time and faces execution after being framed by revered Witchfinder [[Aredian]]. He is later killed by Merlin's magic after being framed by Merlin and Gwen and threatening Morgana with her life.
 
*Arthur learns the true circumstances of his birth but is later convinced it is a lie by Merlin. He almost kills his father when the sorceress [[Morgause]], half-sister of Morgana, who later goes in league with her, casts an illusion of his mother, [[Igraine]], whom he sees for the first time.
 
*Merlin meets his first love, a cursed [[druid]] girl called [[Freya]]. She dies and becomes [[The Lady of the Lake]].
 
*Peace talks between The [[Five Kingdoms|Five Kingdoms&nbsp;take]] place. In this episode more royals than before are introduced.
 
*Morgana disappears, which begins Uther's one year search which costs the lives of many men.
