Synopsis for "War With Wotan"Edit

In Britain, Merlin watches the war unfolding, and he grieves over the horror of it all. What can he do to show mankind a better way? Enfolding himself in his charmed cloak, Merlin travels back through aeons of time, and visits a Druid monument. He climbs a steep cliff and enters a jagged old temple, where he interrupts a human sacrifice ritual, rescuing a youth and a maiden (Aran & his girlfriend), and with a gesture moves them into the twentieth century. He shows them a modern city, and they’re amazed by it, but why are they there? Merlin sermonizes about advancements in science and culture and art, and how now that’s all at an end, as mankind slides back into the barbarism of Wotan, the War God. So these two are here, now, to help Merlin destroy Wotan. They agree to help. Merlin kapoofs their stone-age clothing into military aviator uniforms, with jodphurs, and conjures up a seaplane. Guided by Merlin’s powers to a destination across the sea, they fly to a distant country, and bail out, as instructed. They are spotted from the ground, and shot, by a young man and a young woman, in blue uniforms, commanded by an ill-tempered older man. When they see that the dead parachutists are a pair of youngsters like themselves, they are horrified at their own actions. The commander is completely disgusted by their caterwauling, so much so that he pulls out a side-arm and prepares to gun them both down. That’s when Merlin steps in and turns his pistol into a squealing live rat, and the cowardly officer flees. The weeping young soldiers grieve for their dead young counterparts, but Merlin brings those two back to life with a single magic word. That’s when the thunder and lightning start up, and Wotan himself strides forth, sword in hand, to destroy Merlin and all the others. Merlin conjures up a sword, fences with Wotan, and strikes him down with one deadly swing. The four young people vow to help Merlin to destroy the evil of war.
