- Talk to him.
 Detailed Walkthrough
If you inquire around Morthal about the wizard in town, you are told that he seems to be up to something; specifically, that he goes out into the marsh in the middle of the night to cast spells. If you wait near his house until 1 am, you can follow him to the marshes to what appears to be a summoning circle (presumably related to Falion's specialty, Conjuration). Upon confronting him, he will demand that you leave him to his "work" and never speak to anyone about what you observed that night, although he won't reveal precisely what his work is. However, in a conversation with Agni, she will say that she had a "bad dream" in which Falion went away and made "monsters" while she slept, which he dismisses as only a dream. You can agree to keep quiet, or blackmail him for 200 gold. Regardless of your choice, you may then report him to the jarl if you so desire.
If you choose to report him to the current jarl - Sorli the Builder or Idgrod Ravencrone - the jarl will permanently follow Falion, without interacting with him. She will also follow him, without comment, to the summoning circle when he returns there at night, and if replaced during the civil war or Season Unending, the replacement will continue to follow him in a similar manner.
- If you follow the jarl after reporting Falion, she will walk to Falion's location, but they won't interact at all.
