THE BORGIAS - SEASON TWO FINALE
The season two finale of The Borgias on Showtime was one of the truly great hours of television drama.
I will not summarize this episode here. I suggest you just watch it. It will be re-run on Showtime over and over. It is not really necessary to know much about (or even probably not any of) the story even if you have never watched this series.
This episode is 2.10 - The Confession. The links below should provide you with all the background you might ever want.
