Diplomacy
2 May 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Louis has recovered and asserts to take control of events away from the plotters. He has had many of the aristocrats arrested and gets conflicting advice as to whether to let them rot in prison, execute them or set them free on the promise of future obedience.

Philippe's wife Henriette suffers a miscarriage and is very ill. However she is also King Charles of England's sister and Louis wants her to visit her brother in England to form an alliance against the Dutch. This plan is not without danger to Henriette as their is security guard in the court who works for the plotters. Luckily Montcourt helps foil the assassination attempt so he can be reinstated at the King's court.

The recent episodes are more focussed as we are reaching an end game. Louis is certainly more assured, Philippe is rather at a loss and at a loose end. In danger of losing his lover, his wife and his brother's trust.
