Episode Summary

EDIT
The Hinge of Fate
AIRED:
The battle with Mordred's forces is fast approaching and things do not look good for our heroes. Aleta and her army could offer Camelot the support it currently lacks from its people, but only if Lord Maldon does not act on his suspicions of the Queen of the Misty Isles. Meanwhile, Allen returns to the Chapel of the Sword and the Stone and uncovers far more than he was sent to find. Could his discovery save the New Order from oblivion, or are Valiant, Arn, Rowanne, and their army doomed to be crushed by Mordred's superior numbers?moreless

  • Disappointing final episode to an overall great series.

    6.1
    For a final episode, this one is very weak. It seems like the writers tried to make too much happen in a short period of time, in order to bring things to a swift conclusion. As a result, the ending is largely unsatisfying, just like season 2 is as a whole.



    There were various loose ends that were not covered in the end, and the overall feeling is that this episode was rushed out.



    The revelation that King Arthur was in fact not dead made the finale even worse, as the viewers thoughts about the downfall of Camelot are betrayed in the last 5 minutes of the show. Everything turns on it's head and the ending is a 'perfect' happy one for all of Camelot with Arthur back on the throne and all the knights ready to partake in the next quest, (for the holy grail perhaps). The whole storyline ends up being reset if you like, with all the characters futures left hanging. I expected something more conclusive. What a shame.moreless

    • Story 76 depicts Queen Guinevere as being temporarily jealous of and aloof towards Queen Aleta due to her great beauty and popularity in the royal court. Our Queen Guinevere would never be jealous for no reason. Her scenes with Aleta in this episode reveal that there is nothing but respect and friendship between the two monarchs.

    • Merlin exits the comic strip long before Prince Valiant's story is over. On Page 1141 in Story 77, Merlin Ambrosius gives his pupil Valiant one last piece of cryptic advice before being led into limbo by Nimue the water nymph. Of course, by that point Valiant is already a knight, husband, and father known far and wide for his heroic deeds. Our version of the hero is years younger than his comic counterpart is in that story.

    • Although they never get married in the series, in Story 30 of the comic strip Valiant and Aleta are finally wed by an old hermit (but only after a series of misunderstandings, kidnappings, and battles). They eventually have 5 children: Arn (heir to Thule), twins Valeta and Karen, Galan (heir to the Misty Isles), and Nathan.
