9. World of Wonders It's Easter, but Alexander continues to fast. A new taster is recruited, and Antonello gets the job - Della Rovere's assassin is ready to strike. In Florence, Cesare challenges Savonarola to a trial by fire. Raffaello meanwhile, formally asks for Lucrezia's hand but Alexander sends the brothers packing. Giulia persuades Alexander that his Papacy has been a good thing, so he ends his fast and orders a celebration for the baptism of Lucrezia's baby.

Cesare, determined to destroy his legacy as well as his body, fakes a confession and Savonarola is burned as a heretic.

She announces she will marry him.

To be honest it would not be something I would normally watch due to the graphic sex they have to through in each episode, but the actor(s) are terrific and so believable it keeps me coming back for more.
I have no clue how historically accurate is this series. In this, Lucretzia is almost a saint, so I'm eager to read a historian's account of this family. Read morePublished 13 days ago by fiberartist
I liked this second season but would have liked to see what happened to the youngest brother. Other than that I loved seeing what happened in the series.Published 23 days ago by southernlass
