Following the second poisoning and disappearance of Jacques Louis gets Fabien to increase security whilst planning the war with the Dutch and continuing his affair with the newly-delivered Montespan - to the queen's fury and general disapproval. He also demands that Fabien's spy Sophie de Clermont marry the much older Cassel in order to report back to him. Gaston de Foix is arrested as the poisoner and tortured and his mother banished from court. Meanwhile Philippe must be seen to bed Liselotte but his love for the scheming Chevalier and disregard for his brother's power politics turn the event into a disaster.
