How do we know we're actually getting rid of Mordred? What if...
that's why we're killing them all
SCENE II: Camelot
I'm on my way to Camelot! Since my family back home didn't want me maybe my real Father will finally acknowledge me.
SCENE III: A Loss
OH NO GULLL!!! SHE'S DEAD!!
Prophesied as the boy who will ultimately kill King Arthur, his father, everyone despises him from the moment he’s born. King Arthur abandons him by the sea when he’s only a baby, in the hope that the tide will wash him away. However, a fisherman’s wife finds him and raises him as her own.
SCENE IV: Souls
Wait Merlin that wasn't a part of the plan! What are you doing ??
He decides he needs to get closer to the king. When he’s fifteen and old enough to serve, he goes to Camelot to serve as a Knight of the Round Table. His hopes die immediately when he learns that he can’t tell the king who he is. He must pretend to be someone else. While staying in Camelot, Mordred realizes that his father is a good man who only wants to protect his kingdom.
SCENE V: Father & Son At War
The death of Gull really hit Mordred hard because she has basically been companion since he was sent to live with his Mother. Gull and Nyneve are linked so when he saw that Gull was dying, he knew in his heart that Nyneve was too.
SCENE VI: Acknowledgement
Merlin told Mordred that he must give his soul to someone that he trusts and he chose his father, King Arthur. Merlin wasn't being honest though, because when it was time for the transfer, Merlin kept the soul and left. Keeping it for a later purpose.
The problem is, avoiding the dilemma only makes matters worse. When he meets Merlin, Merlin shows him a vision of the future that is to come. It is so violent and despairing that Mordred knows there’s nothing he can do to change it. At this point, Mordred accepts the role of murderer, setting out to kill his father. When he kills the king (so he thought), it brings him no sense of peace—only shame.
After that fateful battle that left Mordred dead and King Arthur injured, the King found out that Mordred's soul went into that raven that was looking after him in his room. After realizing that he loved his only son, Mordred finally got what he wanted as King Arthur finally acknowledged him as his son.
