Cesare is forced to come to terms with both the spiritual and political consequences of murdering Giovanni Sforza after confessing his crimes to Rodrigo. Determined to swap his holy vestments for the Gonfaloniere's armour, the headstrong cardinal joins forces with Machiavelli in a scheme to rob the Medici banks. Meanwhile, Florence remains in the thrall of Girolamo Savonarola, who plots to purge the Tuscan capital with fire, and Giuliano della Rovere's apprentice assassin begins a horrific training regime. Expect lots of poorly-looking extras overacting up a storm.
