Anne and Henry Take A Sexy Vacation In France!, 3 February 2014
Author: Dan1863Sickles from Troy, NY

As TUDORS episodes go, this one is relatively light-hearted. Anne is still very much in Henry's favor, and enjoying all the jewels and rewards that come along with being a king's favorite. Of course it's a two way street, as Anne thanks the king warmly and also gives him a bit of hands-on attention in a charmingly naughty private scene!

Later in the episode, the two of them go to France to meet Henry's friend and "Brother," King Francis. It's very romantic to see how thrilled Henry is to show off his future bride, but also interesting how Francis tries to warn Anne of the dangers ahead once she becomes a queen.

The one weakness in this episode is the ridiculously overheated subplot about evil Vatican agents stalking sexy Anne Boleyn. The dark, gloomy, horror-movie shadows create a mood of comedy, not suspense, especially when Anne and Henry are locked in the throes of passion and a monk with a gun is lurking nearby. You almost expect cheeky Anne to look over at him and say, "is that a huge pistol poking out of your robes, Brother? Or are you just happy to see me?"
