They say not to put all your eggs in one basket, but Arthur only has one basket (that is, Merlin). He must convince Camelot that Merlin and, by extension, magic deserve to be free. (In which Merlin must consent to be put on trial for everything he has ever done, and he can only hope that his good outweighs his evil.) It has all come down to this. Ft. BAMF!Merlin
