Sforza- "Where am I?"
Cesare- "Where all roads lead to...Rome."
As the saying goes, with death upon death upon death comes new life. Well, at least that seems to be the saying on The Borgias. "Nobody" ended the season with King Charles finding his new kingdom of Naples filled with a drove of dead plague victims, while the Borgias welcomed a new generation to the family.To read the rest of my review of Sunday's The Borgias, head over to TV Fanatic.
Yes, King Charles of France made it to Naples, and it was great seeing the disappointment on Della Rovere's face when he found out Charles wasn't going to do anything about the situation in Rome. Who would have known that this murderous villain was such a softy when in the presence of His Holiness? It certainly was a nice twist, though, as it allowed for the Borgias to remain in power, and kept Della Rovere on the hunt.
I'm glad to see that my previous prediction that Della Rovere wouldn't make it out of this season was incorrect. In this case, one of the historically educated commenters informed me that the Cardinal would be around for a while after last week's episode, but I really do prefer to not know the background of the series.
For the first time, I knew what was not going to happen, and it made things a little less interesting. Wondering who is going to make it out of the story alive creates a lot of excitement.
