Storyline

Jane Seymour's brother, Edward, is appointed a Gentleman of the Privy Chamber. Anne believes she can still marry off Elizabeth to France and repel the Seymours, but Cromwell is only following Royal orders to get rid of the Boleyns and switch to the imperial side, as her father Thomas senses. They believe to have triumphed when Henry refuses Chapuys's discrete alliance offer, but Cromwell tortures musician Mark Smeaton into a false confession of adultery with Anne. Brereton confesses to ensure the Queen's death, Sir Henry Norris and her own brother George Boleyn are equally found guilty and precede her beheading, only Thomas Wyatt is -wrongly- acquitted.

Trivia

Just before the credits there are several flashes of images. They include two different period portraits of Henry VIII, one of Anne Boleyn shown twice, and a half-second of modern film of the Campanile of San Marco filmed in the Piazza of Venice, Italy (always shown right after Anne's portrait). The significance of a tower in Venice is never explained in the episode, although it may be an analogy to the Tower of London where Anne was eventually sent to. See more »

Goofs

Mark Smeaton is the last man brought before the executioner. Oddly, even though the executioner has chopped off several heads, his axe is completely bloodless when Smeaton is placed on the block. When the executioner raises his axe to swing, the blood has magically stained it again. See more »
