The Borgias: The Purge

Pope Alexander tasks Cardinal Sforza with initiating an inquisition among the Cardinals who were politicking against him.

Meanwhile, Catherina Sforza orders Rufio to seek support from the mercenary warlords of the Romagna families. Lucrezia is annoyed with her in-laws to be and her situation is complicated further as she realizes her feelings for Cesare are becoming something more than sisterly.
