The Big Question

"Dearest, if you could try again, change one thing, what would that be?" Hunith asked gently.

Grateful for his old mother's understanding and compassion, Merlin looked into the hearth-flames. His weary mind took him back in time.

Should he have revealed his magic to Arthur sooner? Been honest with Morgana, never poisoned her, or never had Kilgharrah revive her? Treated Mordred differently, or let Uther die by Edwin's hand? Which single change would have secured them a happy ending, and prevented Arthur's death?

"My intentions were always good, so I cannot say," he admitted dejectedly. "I did my best."
