May 1536, Henry hopes Anne Boleyn's beheading and marriage annulment will allow an anti-French alliance with the emperor. Eager for a 'renaissance', Henry can't even await the arrival of the reputed executioner from Calais to 'ask' Jane's father John Seymour for her hand. She asks him to reinstate princess Mary as heir. Charles Brandon enjoys fatherhood and tells Thomas Boleyn he may leave court, stripped of everything. Anne confesses haughtily but dies graciously.

There is symbolism regarding the swan at the end of the episode. Earlier, Henry sees two swans together. Swans mate for life. Later, Henry is seen monstrously devouring one of the swans, just as he monstrously had his own wife put to death. See more
