REVIEW - The Borgias - SERIES FINALE - S03E10

Labels: , , ,

In Micheletto’s continued absence Cesare relies on the sneaky Machiavelli as he plans his next move to carve out a Kingdom of his own and become a ‘Prince’. Forli will be taken by force and under Cesare's own terms. The problem is the Pope is not quite ready yet to hand over the reigns and has his own designs for his surviving son.

Catarina Sforza's busy little spies inform her that Rome’s army is descending on Forli. This, she thinks, gives her 10 days to bunker down and protect her domain. However, she has no idea that Cesare had already dispatched his French Army and she is surrounded. Will she surrender or go down in legend as a women who never backed down, even in the face of death and destruction.

The finale we have all been waiting for is here. Cesare is well and truly out of his father's shadow, the Pope managed to survive multiple poisonings and assassination attempts and Lucrezia leaves another fated marriage. As you would expect, loose ends are tied up but not all. There needs to be a thread or two to the next season, if there is to be one.

Season 3 did not disappoint and is another classic series to add to the Borgia box set.
