Henry's trip north to mend fences with his northern provinces appears to be going well, but Francis Derehan, Catherine's first lover, appears and coerces her into reluctantly appointing him to her chamber as a price for silence. The brash and immature young man soon becomes overly familiar with her and puts the Queen, who is still passionately involved with Culpepper, in jeopardy. The young Prince Edward catches a dangerous fever but the Seymour doesn't want to alarm the king on his diplomatic mission. Unfortunately this becomes a moot point, when King James refuses to meet him and the Scottish army begins to attack their southern neighbors along the border. A distraught Henry returns home to his ill Prince of Wales. Written by Anonymous
