“It seems only a Borgia can love Borgia.”
The sinfully good season three trailer for Showtime’s The Borgias hints that there could be a very literal interpretation of that line awaiting us this year. After two seasons of establishing the close bond (and insane chemistry) between Borgia siblings Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger) and Cesare (Francois Arnaud), the promo strongly hints that the duo’s relationship might finally take on a carnal nature. “It is a game of want and wanting,” Lucrezia tells her brother. The question is will they give in?
The trailer also highlights the rest of the family’s sinful tendencies as we see the head of “the original crime family,” Pope Alexander VI (Jeremy Irons), committing quite a few dark deeds himself. Check it out below.
Season three of The Borgias premieres Sunday, April 14th at 10PM ET/PT.
