I think he'll get past that hang-up now - Part 2 of the season finale sews up a whole load of loose ends...
It's the same with any serial though fantasy or otherwise - there's only so many situations to explore - like the last Robin Hood *spits at memory
* always having to find an excuse to go into Nottingham
or the A Team always getting locked up with power tools at their disposal
Actually what I did
like about this series was how they managed to weave a lot the major canon for the Arthurian legends (aside from the obvious palsy walsy same age Merlin & Arthur) back into loose sync without
involving christianity in any way
Also Emilia Fox as Morgause - she even managed to make Katie McGrath look good and do something more than the eye candy thing
