Simon Westbrook is fingered as the spy who revealed Francis's plans. He is imprisoned, and his beheading is scheduled.
As Bash recovers from his wounds, he makes a connection with Lola.
Mary's new fiance, Tomas, is not the man he appears to be. He's violent, demanding, and rumors say that he murdered his first wife.
Francis and Mary kiss passionately. Tomas is not pleased.
Francis has a hunch that the true spy was not Simon, but Tomas.
Francis is half-right: Tomas's relationship with Mary was all a trick, a scheme to find a wife so that he could be considered a legitimate heir to the Portuguese throne.
But Francis's mother, Queen Catherine, also played a role in revealing Francis's plans--all so that Mary would be forced to marry Tomas, and thus leave Francis and the French court behind. But Catherine's involvement is never revealed to Francis--only Mary appears to know.
Tomas takes his "whipping boy," Manuel--a witness to his crime--to the woods to murder him, but Francis and Bash arrive just in time, saving Manuel. Francis kills Tomas.
Westbrook is pardoned, Mary's engagement to Francis is back on, and Mary makes a strong stand for her own negotiating power in French court.
Kenna finally gives in and sleeps with King Henry.
