With Merlin absent, Arthur turns Camelot into an episode of Law & Order. After coming across the near execution of a village man, Arthur sets out to have a proper hearing in hopes of establishing Camelot as a fair and just kingdom. Unfortunately, the story they chose was more predictable than enjoyable. It was obvious from the outset that there was a seedy underside to the village that no one wanted to talk about.
