Storyline

Arthur is pressured into an arranged marriage with a visiting princess, Elena. Arthur's reservations are vindicated when Merlin discovers Elena may not be exactly all she seems. He learns, quite by accident, that Elena's nanny is a Pixie. But who is she working for, and what is to be gained from a marriage to Arthur, heir to the throne of Camelot? Can Merlin get to the bottom of this mystery before Arthur is forced into the biggest mistake of his life? Written by BBC
