Brigid: He speaks the truth! I think we’ve all seen that Darken Rahl will do anything to bring peace to the midlands. What was Lord Rahl to do? Face the seeker as a grown man who could defend himself and carry out the prophecy? No. He had to kill our children! The seeker stood up to the patrols this morning. He saved that girl’s life! No one else has had the courage to do that! If we betray the seeker because we are afraid, then the children of Brennidon died for nothing! I’m the one you’re looking for! I am the seeker’s mother! But I will never help you find him.

-Legend of the Seeker: Brennidon

Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander: Richard Cypher, though the road will be long and the outcome unknown, will you undertake this journey?

Richard Cypher: I will.

Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander: Will you leave behind your friends and all that you have known?

Richard Cypher: I will.

Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander: Though, the forces of evil are sworn to bring about your death, still, will you go on?

Richard Cypher: I will.

Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander: And will you accept the name of the Seeker?

Richard Cypher: I will.

Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander: Then I, First Wizard Zeddicus Z’ul Zorander so name you.

[Zedd points his fingers down at the ground blasting fire. A circle of fire forms around Richard’s feet. Richard raises the Sword of Truth and thunder crashes]

-Legend of the Seeker: Prophecy

The Great Dragon: Merlin… there is nothing you can do.
Merlin: I’ve failed.
The Great Dragon: No, young warlock, for all that you have dreamt of building has come to pass.
Merlin: I can’t lose him! He’s my friend!
The Great Dragon: Though no man, no matter how great, can know his destiny, some lives have been foretold, Merlin… Arthur is not just a king, he is the Once and Future King. Take heart, for when Albion’s need is greatest, Arthur will rise again. It has been a privilege to have known you, young warlock. The story we have been a part of will live long in the minds of men.

BALINOR: Merlin. [Merlin opens his eyes]

MERLIN: Father. [He turns his head the other way and sees his father’s ghost/spirit.]

BALINOR: My son.

MERLIN: Are you here? Are you real?

BALINOR: Dead or alive? Real or imagined? Past or present? These things are of no consequence. All that matters is that you heed the words of your father who loves you. Do not let go, Merlin, do not give in.

MERLIN: I have no reason to go on. The battle is already over. Morgana has won.

BALINOR: Only if you accept defeat. But if you fight, if you let hope into your heart, Morgana cannot be victorious.

MERLIN: What hope is there without my magic? [Balinor kneels down next to Merlin.]

BALINOR: Merlin, you are more than a son of you father. You are son of the earth, the sea, the sky, magic is the fabric of this world, and you were born of that magic. You are magic itself. You cannot lose what you are.

MERLIN: But how do I find myself…again?

BALINOR: Believe, Merlin. Believe what your heart knows to be true. That you have always been, and always will be.

MERLIN: Always will be.

BALINOR: Rest now. Rest my son. And soon you shall awaken into the light. [Merlin sleeps.]
