The Borgias, Bravo – Season 2 premiere “The Borgia Bull”
Inspired by the discovery of a caché of long-lost ancient Roman artifacts, Pope Alexander VI throws a grandiose pagan-themed feast for the people of Rome. Meanwhile, Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger) tends to her new baby while her brothers Cesare (François Arnaud) and Juan (David Oakes) find their mutual animosity spilling over into outright conflict, culminating in a heart-stopping bareback horse race. Alexander’s mistress, Giulia Farnese (Lotte Verbeek), learns that the Pope has taken a new lover and turns to Vanozza (Joanne Whalley) for advice…who counsels that there is room for three. Elsewhere, Della Rovere (Colm Feore) returns to the simple life of a pastoral priest and narrowly escapes an assassination attempt by Cesare. Following their television premieres, episodes will be made available online at borgias.bravo.ca.
