A Chill in the Air
"You've never learned to take, like a bastard can.
Take a crown. Take a woman. Take a life.
Tomås of Portugal


Mary And Francis Grow Closer Amidst The Chaos
Mary has to decide if she is willing to lie and sentence a man to death in order to have King Henry let her out of her engagement to Prince Francis. Meanwhile, Francis and Bash are suspicious of Tomas' true intentions which will ultimately lead to a confrontation with disastrous results.


"If we do leave tomorrow, I don't mind you knowing, I'll think of you."
Lady Kenna

Tomás of Portugal turns out to be not quite the gentleman he wanted Mary to believe. Prince Francis, Sebastian and Mary try to uncover the truth about an English ambassador, whose life and the peace between whole countries lie in the balance, all while attending a The Michaelmas Banquette


Sebastian: I'm going to make us both feel better, and leave.

Kenna: (to King Henry II) If we do leave tomorrow, I don't mind you knowing, I'll think of you.

Leith Bayard: Saint Michael. He slew Lucifer, who's sold vanity, pride and shame. Which, is why we wear these masks. So on this one day, No one is better than anyone else. We're all the same.

Tomás of Portugal: You've never learned to take, like a bastard can. Take a crown. Take a woman. Take a life.

Sebastian: Killing isn't supposed to be easy. If your hands weren't shaking, you'd be him.
