The Spanish Princess Season 2 Episode 5 Recap
In the 5th episode, the plague hits London and the court takes shelter in Wolsey’s abode at Hampton Court. Here, it is revealed that Bessie Blount is pregnant with Henry’s bastard. Maggie and Thomas More stay back at the palace, which is totally empty. The pair notices that their longing for each other has increased. At Hamptons, Wolsey is accused of having a hidden mistress and two bastards.
On the other hand, Wolsey warns Bessie that she will be sent away in disgrace if the child she is carrying is not a boy. Catherine is forced to keep Bessie as one of her ladies. After a few months, Bessie delivers and it is a boy — much to Henry’s happiness. Meanwhile, Edward informs Catherine that the French are paying Wolsey to influence King Henry. The queen then speaks with Henry and tells him about how Wolsey has been gathering so much wealth.
She also explains how the French is paying him to coerce Henry. Henry informs her that he already knows about this arrangement. He had himself brokered the deal and had given Wolsey his blessing to accept bribes. Henry adds that he knows Catherine, Edward Stafford, and Charlie Brandon do not like Wolsey. But for him, Wolsey is the only one who understands him and does his every bidding.
