Episode Synopsis: The Borgias Season 3 Episode 3 “Siblings” – As the purged Cardinals are dismissed and stripped of their titles and wealth, one of them – Cardinal Versucci (Vernon Dobtcheff) – angrily sets the Vatican Treasury ablaze after stealing a large sum. Incensed by the new King Ferdinand’s (Matias Varela) arrogant refusal to accept Giovanni as Lucrezia’s (Holliday Grainger) child, Cesare (Francois Arnaud) travels to Naples to fix the problem. Later, Cesare begins to consider an alliance with the old enemy France while Alexander doggedly sticks to his plan of allying with Naples, and therefore, Spain. After Lucrezia & Alfonso’s wedding, Alfonso (Sebastian De Souza) realizes that the political sands are shifting – and not in his favour. Upset, he leaves Lucrezia alone on her wedding night, driving her into the arms of her own brother at last.
Show Summary: Oscar® winner Jeremy Irons stars in THE BORGIAS, the saga of history’s most infamous crime family. Conspiring with his ruthless sons Cesare and Juan and poisonously seductive daughter Lucrezia, the charismatic Rodrigo Borgia will let nothing and no one stand in the way of his relentless quest for wealth and power. Mercilessly cruel and defiantly decadent, intimidation and murder are his weapons of choice in his scandalous ascension to the papacy in Renaissance-era Italy.
