Inspired by the discovery of a cache of long-lost ancient Roman artifacts, Pope Alexander VI throws a grandiose pagan-themed feast for the people of Rome. Meanwhile, Lucrezia tends to her new baby while her brothers Cesare and Juan find their mutual animosity spilling over into outright conflict, culminating in a heart-stopping bareback horse race. Alexander's mistress, Giulia Farnese, learns that the Pope has taken a new lover and turns to Vanozza for advice. . . who counsels that there is room for three. Elsewhere, Della Rovere, returned to the simple life of a pastoral priest and narrowly escapes an assassination attempt by Cesare. In the south, the former prince of plague-ridden Naples, Alfonso, is hunted down on the slopes of Vesuvius and tortured to death by the occupying forces of a furious - and gravely sick -- French King Charles VIII.
