Storyline

Juan Borgia returns from the siege the Catherina Sforza's Forli castle with a tale of his bravery and of standing by his men. Cesare learns the truth from Hernando de Caballos and also that Sforza's son is being kept in the dungeons. Rumors however begin to circulate about what really happened but Juan denies it all. The Pope's doubts are proven correct when Benito Sforza is released from his prison cell and tells the Pope what truly happened. The Pope orders Cesare to return the boy to his mother. Cardinal della Rovere's plan to poison the Pope is moving forward with his young assassin now ready to strike. They must eliminate the Pope food tester first. The Pope is growing ever more impatient with Lucrezia's delay in choosing her next husband. Her mother tells her that she doesn't have to chose between the Duke of Genoa and his brother: she should marry one and take the other as her lover. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

If you were to pause right after the scene where Pope Alexander IV and his Cardinals are seated for their meal (at around 15 mins), John Maybury (the director) has them seated reflecting Leonardo da Vinci's 'The Last Supper'. See more »

Goofs

At Lucrezia's proposal scene, the scale model on the table is far too modern: her three cannon decks, rig and lines show she is either a the late 1700's ship of the line or a heavily armed East Indiaman from the same period. The action takes place around 1500. See more »

Quotes

Rodrigo Borgia: [Rodrigo has been staying up waiting for Juan to come home] I'm a sleepwalker. This wound will not let me rest.
Rodrigo Borgia: Is it your body or your soul that needs healing?
