Borgia Season 3 Recap
Following the loss of the French army, Carafa petitions the Pope to install Federigo d’Aragona as the new King of Naples. Many people disagree with the Pope’s choice of Juan as the future monarch. Sister Lucia and her miraculous wounds are witnessed by Lucrezia. When General Cordova and Guidabaldo meet with the Pope, Cordova requests that the Pope rid Rome of Jews, as the Pope has agreed. Rodrigo encounters Pedro Caldes and requests that he talk with Lucrezia and return her to him.
Lucrezia dismisses Pedro, who approaches her and informs her that Maria died giving birth to twins. Pedro eventually wins her over and the two make love, after which Pedro brings her to Rodrigo. Juan approaches Giovanni de Medici for assistance in converting Jews to Rome. Cesare learns that Juan assassinated Pedro Luis. Pantisiliea arrives in Vannozza and informs her that she had been spying on Lucrezia for Guilia. Juan gives Miguel de Corella the command to assassinate Cesare. Corella does not kill Cesare but instead chooses to serve him instead of Juan, and Cesare requests that he explain how Juan killed Pedro Luis, which he does.
Rodrigo assigns Cordova, Guidabaldo, and Juan the task of apprehending Orsini and Colonna. They succeed in apprehending Marcantonio Colonna but fall short of apprehending Virginio Orsini. Cesare is informed by Alessandro that Silvia is expecting a child. Marcantonio is assassinated by Corella. Cesare discovers that his son is still alive, thanks to Alessandro’s intervention.
Rodrigo is compelled to comply since the leaders of Italy’s city-states and King Ferdinand approve Federigo as the King of Naples rather than Juan. Cesare beats up Alessandro after telling him the truth about his son.
