When news arrives that English soldiers are amassing near the Scottish border, Mary asks Henry for military aid but is refused. Mary tries to negotiate a deal for troops with the visiting Prince Tomas of Portugal. Tomas proposes to Mary, promising military aid and an immediate wedding, which Francis cannot give her. Mary tells Francis of Tomas' proposal, which prompts Francis to blackmail Henry, threatening to tell Catherine and Diane of his new affair with Kenna. Henry is pleased by Francis' initiative and agrees to send six companies of troops to Scotland. Bash rides out to deliver the orders to the troops, but he returns gravely wounded, as they were ambushed by the English before they could set sail. Henry and Catherine realize this means the English were warned by a spy at court. A distraught Francis kisses Mary for the first time and tells her to marry Tomas for the sake of Scotland. Mary accepts Tomas' proposal, and Tomas sends a ship of his men immediately to Scotland.
