The pagans mark Mary as their next sacrifice, planting a necklace and a stag's head in her room. One of Catherine's guards and one of Mary's servants are revealed as the culprits, and they are captured and burned to death. Diane, who secretly practiced the pagan religion in her past, advises Bash to sacrifice someone else in Mary's stead. Bash prepares to sacrifice a thief, but when a pagan priest arrives Bash reveals it as a trap and kills the pagan instead. Bash almost lets the thief free, but when the thief identifies him as the King's son, Bash pushes him off a cliff. Henry publicly declares that Kenna is his mistress, but unknown to Kenna, Henry is still in a relationship with Diane. Francis tells Mary that in order to prevent other people from using their feelings against them, they should be free to be with other people; the only exception is that Mary cannot be with Bash. Francis sleeps with Olivia, who is hoping to get pregnant and in that course become his wife.
