Camelot was attacked by a sorcerer just before the mid winter feast. To Arthur's horror, Merlin absorbed most of the attack and then simply fell over. After convincing his father that Merlin had just been in the wrong place at the wrong time, he had Merlin rushed to Gaius.
"I know," was all he said when Gaius asked him leave, "just save him."
The fact Merlin was a sorcerer did not scare him, losing Merlin did; it was supposed to be the season of giving not taking. Three days later Arthur received the best gift possible; Merlin opened his eyes.
