Cromwell convinces Henry the religious houses' immorality justifies spoliation, which even finances plays to show the people the papist 'debauchery'. Henry wants the French king's junior son to marry Anne's daughter Elisabeth. The French envoy, an admiral entertained by duke Charles Brandon, proposes, rather then legitimize the royal son, the dauphin to wed Katherine's daughter Mary- or the emperor's. Charles tells Chapuys he believes Anne is a witch. After More's ghost haunts Henry, Anne further looses openly unfaithful Henry's favor.

In this episode and several subsequent ones, Master Mark Smeaton is shown playing a modern violin. The equivalent stringed instrument in Tudor times was the viol, played differently from a violin, and shaped differently. The bow with which is was played was also shaped differently to the one shown here (clearly a modern bow). See more
