  • The king learns some things about his cardinal and the court finds out about his love for Anne Boleyn.

    An exciting episode because the king learns that Wolsey does not always have the king's interests at heart and that an annullment of his marriage to Catherine is unlikely, impossible even. Even thought we know, more or less, what will happen in the next few episodes regarding his conflcit with the pope, it's still exciting to see history in the making.

    I loved the return of Charles Brandon at court and hope he will feature more often, together with his wife, princess Margaret. I like that pair of fortune hunters.

    The confrontation between Queen Catherine and Anne was fun to watch too, and the king's public acknowledgement of Anne, over the queen, was shown to great effect.

    The scheming of Norfolk and Thomas Boleyn has paid off, Wolsey is now officially in trouble.
  • True Love

    True Love was a perfect episode of The Tudors. I enjoyed watching this episode because there was lots of intriguing character and plot development. The King continues to pressure Wolsey, who fails him, while Lord Rotchford and Lord Norfolk begin their assult on Wolsey along with Charles Brandon. It was funny when he apologized to the King and they arm wrestled. Queen Katherine also had some good scenes as she confronted Lady Anne Boelyn. Mr. Wyatt was writing a lovely poem, and it was cool the Thomas Tallus was helping to put it to music. This episode had many entertaining characteristics. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!
  • The story of Henry VIII.

    Personal and political allegiances continue to change in Henry's court. The King grows ever more confident in his role as monarch and more enamored of the young Anne Boleyn. Despite Cardinal Wolsey's influence and efforts - and much to the frustration of the King - the Catholic Church seems unable to make progress in Henry's petition for a divorce. This adds to the growing discomfort of the increasingly vulnerable Wolsey. Meanwhile, Charles Brandon begs for the King's pardon and is accepted back in court, with his wife, Princess Margaret, the King's older sister, as he joins Boleyn and Norfolk's quest to reduce Wolsey's power over the King.
