As he seeks the annulment of his marriage to Katherine of Aragon, King Henry VIII appoints himself the head of the Church of England. Anne Boleyn insists that Henry remove Queen Katherine from the picture -- and Court. The new Pope Paul III, not wanting to displease either the king or the queen, practically suggests that Anne Boleyn be assassinated instead. Thomas Cranmer receives a promotion as the king's chaplain. The Boleyns bribe a cook to poison the food of the dissident Bishop of Rochester, John Fisher. The bishop survives and the cook is boiled alive. King Henry banishes the Queen from court. At the end of this episode the Spanish ambassador is seen discussing the assassination of Anne with an unknown, hooded man.
