This episode was not nearly as engaging as the previous week's. In a nutshell, King Henry is fooling around, looking for a viable mate with which to have a boy child. Anne Boelyn is well aware of this and is in a bind. Like a previous reviwer mentioned, the plot line this week was scattered. One moment on King Henry, the next on Oliver Cromwell, the next on Anne Boelyn, the next on the Pope. Yikes, give me a scorecard.
One pattern we see is how people marry for the wrong reasons. We see political marriages to keep the peace between potentially warring nations. We also see those marrying just to get into the right family. Marrying up, let's say. ANd we're shown how none of them are happy.
This show is so much better than the HBO show "Rome". This was just a less than perfect week.
