I thought this episode was a great way to start the second season. I loved how the interactions between Anne and Henry have stopped being full sex and is now mostly focusing on the hypnotizing spell she has him under. This episode brings in a lot of new characters to focus on this season. A big one being Thomas Wyatt, who had appeared last season but seems to be involved in this season much more. Mr. Cromwell is now set up to be some sort of villain who is on the King's side, much like Cardinal Wolsey was the last season.
Peter O'Toole as the Pope is genius! His acting is fantastic and he brings a whole new life to this Pope we have heard so much about.
Overall, it was a great episode and I'm excited to see more of this season.
