Micheletto discovers that his new lover is spying on him. Caterina Sforza grieves over the loss of her dead son and plots her revenge. She puts the Shroud of Constantinople on display and arranges for a fake miracle to draw the crowds. When she learns from her spy that Cesare will be checking into this new holy site, she plans to kill him. The Pope has decided to officiate at the investiture of King Alfonso of Naples. In return the King asks that he name an ambassador from the Vatican and specifically requests that he name Lucrezia. He agrees and she is quite pleased but they have been duped. Once back in Naples, Alfonso makes it quite clear that she is his prisoner. Meanwhile, the Pope has come to an agreement with the Jews of Rome. Written by garykmcd
