Storyline

Margaret Beaufort is pleased to learn that Warwick,whose daughter Isabel is George's reluctant bride,is holding a parliament in York to have George declared the rightful monarch. However the parliament opposes Warwick's idea and Edward,Elizabeth and Jacquetta are all released. Edward,to his wife's annoyance,suggests alliances with Warwick to prevent further factions and even Elizabeth's surviving brother Anthony appears to acquiesce. However Edward has another revolt on his hands,supposedly led by Henry's wife Margaret of Anjou but in reality staged by Warwick and George. Margaret Beaufort's husband wants no part in it but the obsessive matriarch prevails upon her nervous brother Richard to lead her cause. He is killed by Edward after telling him that the rebels are actually Warwick and George,who are forced to flee abroad. Whilst on board ship Isabel miscarries George's baby but Elizabeth is pregnant again and swears that this shall be a son. Written by don @ minifie-1

Character Devlopment Abandoned for Hocus-Pocus
20 June 2014 | by (Portland, OR, USA) – See all my reviews

This would have been an excellent episode if it weren't for all the witchcrap. Unfortunately, the writers would have us believe that the major plot development that climaxes the episode occurs through witchy-poo. I'm sorry; that is just not something I'm prepared to accept in a drama set anywhere outside of Middle-Earth or Westeros. I'm not familiar with Philippa Gregory's work so maybe I was simply unprepared for something her readers would have seen coming. I came into this expecting an historical drama NOT a fantasy. Although the fact that the characters, Elizabeth Woodville and her mother, believed in occultism had been brought up in both of the previous episodes, viewers had not up till now been clubbed over the head with it. You could watch the show, interpreting their behavior as just medieval folk culture, without being expected to believe that some of the characters had magical powers.
