Doxie’s laziness causes the crew to split and return in time to the old Camelot, in which King Arthur leads a war against the trolls and the wondrous creatures. Morgana, for her part, protests and defends the marvelous fantasy creatures. We get indirectly the story of Morgana becoming the number one public enemy and the story of Excalibur.
