Recap

In modern-day London, an older man emerges from his apartment and goes to his car. Three punks approach him and ask if he’s going on a trip. When he admits he is, they insist he goes with them instead. The man subdues one of them and the second draws a knife. His friend Tom tries to stop him but the punk continues and the older man takes the knife-wielding hood down as easily. The older man grabs Tom who explains they were under orders to bring him to a woman. The older man insists on going to see the woman...

Episode Notes
No opening voiceover



Episode Quotes
Lance: Merlin always said you had no morals.
Morgan Le Fay: Merlin said a lot of things. Between him and Mallory, I got horrible press.

Morgan Le Fay: Why do you suppose you were in such a hurry to get to Cornwall?
Lance: Call it an old man's whim.
Morgan Le Fay: Yes. The old man was Merlin.

Tom: Where...?
Lance: Cornwall.
Tom: Cornwall, you're daft! Strong, mind you, but daft.

Merlin: I have no doubt that you'll be at my side when I set my new Arthur on the throne of England.
Lance: Kings are mere ornaments in this time, Merlin. People prefer to choose their own leaders now.
Merlin: What a foolish notion. How can they understand what's best for them?

(Closing Voiceover)
Narrator: Once upon a time there was a realm of myth and magic, a high bright dream that shimmered briefly and then was gone, leaving only memories and one ageless, weary, slightly tarnished hero, who proved at last that wisdom and valor go hand in hand - on Earth, in Camelot, and in the Twilight Zone.
