So, what’s a new Pope to do once he has emptied his coffers to buy the highest position in the Christian world? He has to start raising funds. And that’s exactly what Pope Alexander VI sets out to do in the next episode of “The Borgias” on Sunday (April 10) at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime.
The newly crowned Pope (played by Jeremy Irons) makes a few income-related decisions, but he has no idea how they may affect each other. First, he decides to offer a safe haven in the Holy City for Jewish people displaced by the Spanish Inquisition – if they pay a fee.
In Zap2it’s exclusive clip above, he decides to double up his efforts to marry off his 14-year-old daughter, Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger), in a deal that will be both profitable financially and increase his influence.
At the same time, he decides to host a charming Turkish prince – again for a fee – but could Lucrezia find the new boarder too charming?
