The Borgias 3×01 The Face of Death

Historical drama The Borgias is centered around the House of Borgia and their rise to power at the turn of the 16th century, centering on Rodrigo Borgia (Jeremy Irons), the later Pope Alexander VI, and his family: his illegitimate sons Giovanni (David Oakes), Cesare (François Arnaud) and daughter Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger).

The third season picks up where the second season stopped: the Pope is fighting for his life after being poisened with cantarella while his Cardinals continue plotting at his deathbed. However, not only the Pope’s life is in danger, his enemies are also after his family.

One of the assassins (Andrew Gower) blackmails Lucrezia’s nurse Concetta (Mackenzie Munro) to gain access to the Borgia household and kill all family members. Lucrezia, Cesare and his servant Micheletto (Sean Harris) need to work fast if they want to save everyone…
