Need to catch up? Check out the previous The White Princess recap here.
When an outbreak of plague* is the best thing that happens to you, you are experiencing some rough times, indeed.
Yet in an episode of The White Princess in which Elizabeth and her mother are put under house arrest, Henry is stabbed and Teddy is thrown in the Tower of London, a little sweating sickness seems like manna from heaven.

Last month, production on Avengers: Infinity War had shifted to Edinburgh, Scotland, with new set photos revealing Paul Bettany's Vision. He was seen walking down a Scottish street late at night. Another video surfaced just a day later, which showed Vision using his special powers to fly away after a number of attackers from The Black Order had knocked him to the ground. No further details were given. Today, we have even more set photos, and they uncover a few rather huge Spoilers for Vision and another popular character from the Avengers movies. If you're trying to avoid huge spoilers for Infinity War, then you'll want to stop reading right now.
Shortly after the Vision set photos emerged, we learned that Elizabeth Olsen had arrived in Scotland to film scenes in the Old Town area of Edinburgh, along with a number Marvel stars such as Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, »
Those who read Phillippa Gregory’s novel The White Princess and watched the premiere of Starz’s adaptation of the book on Sunday likely noticed something quite different about Henry and Lizzie’s charged first coupling.
In Gregory’s work, “Henry very actively rapes Lizzie,” executive producer Emma Frost tells TVLine. “That was something that I felt wasn’t the only possible route and wasn’t something that I feel is right for a TV drama, and isn’t something a 21st century female audience is going to be okay with on any level.”

Starz’s American Gods takes on a daunting — let’s call it Goliath-sized — task in adapting Neil Gaiman’s sweeping fantasy novel for the small screen. After all, the cult-favorite book is a road-trip tale, an examination of the nature of belief, one man’s journey toward enlightenment and a primer in world religions.
That’s a lot to fit into an hour each week. Does the freshman drama, which premieres April 30, make it work? Let the congregation say: Amen.

Whether you’re a Tudor scholar or someone who’s better versed in Westeros’ royalty than that of England, The White Princess‘ Emma Frost promises you’ll be able to follow along with Starz’s new drama about England at the start of King Henry VII’s reign.
And part of that is thanks to one ballsy, young king.
The eight-episode series, a sequel to the network’s The White Princess, gets underway as Henry Tudor both ascends to the throne and chooses a wife: the politically expedient Princess Elizabeth of York; their union also unites a divided England.
Let’s take a few minutes to reflect on what could have been.
After two years of speculation, it seems like the question of who will be the seventh actor to take on the iconic role in the long-running film series will have to go on the back burner. Last Monday, the New York Post gossip section published an article citing multiple sources that reported that current Bond actor Daniel Craig is in the final stages of negotiating a return to his most iconic role. If true, it would mark a pretty serious change of tune for Craig, who, in an oft quoted Time Out interview from October 2015, responded to the question of his returning to do another Bond movie thusly: “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All »
