Paolo, the young stable lad from Pesaro, has made his way to Rome, determined to rejoin his one-time lover Lucrezia and the child that she bore him but he has never seen. Meanwhile Giulia, finding her feet in her new role (as part of a threesome) turns her attention to charitable works: with the Pope's new lover Vittoria as their guide, she takes Alexander out into the city in disguise to show him first-hand the plight of the poor. With the aid of good-hearted prostitute Beatrice, Paolo eventually manages to speak to Lucrezia and she begs for Cesare's help to arrange a tryst. Embittered Juan, however, jealous of Cesare and full of misguided notions of family honor, gets wind of his sister's secret rendezvous and in a drunken rage kills Paolo as he leaves the Borgia Villa the following morning and leaves a fake suicide note in the corpse's hand so he'll be mistaken for a common suicide.
