Episode Summary

Masters of Phantoms

Historical drama chronicling Thomas Cromwell's rise to power in the court of Henry VIII. Anne's power is dissolving rapidly and her enemies are gathering. She argues with Jane Rochford but in her anger Anne divulges that the musician Mark Smeaton and the nobles Francis Weston and Harry Norris have all declared their love to her, a treasonable offence. Jane Rochford takes great pleasure in reporting these events to Cromwell, and further insinuates that her husband George Boleyn's unhealthy sexual appetite extends to his sister. Cromwell questions Mark Smeaton, who foolishly boasts of his exploits with the Queen and starts to spill other names including Norris, Weston and William Brereton. Cromwell now has enough information to act and these men together with Anne and George Boleyn are brought to the Tower of London. All are found guilty and are sentenced to death. But with so many heads removed, who now stands between Cromwell and the King?
