There’s a few lies flying around the French court in this week, not just little fibs but great tales of subterfuge too, ones that could change the course of European history for ever. Some are pretty easy to spot or come to light by the end of the episode, another is worked out by one character, whom when met with disapproval of their own act, challenges one of the deceivers. But the biggest deception of all is something only we the audience become privy to for now, and I can’t see the holder of this dark secret wanting to share it with many people any time soon.
The Consummation airs at 9pm ET on Thursday 6th March, below are a few dialogue teasers to see you through until then. Don't forget to come back to vote in our poll after the episode and let us know what you thought.

“Make the blow sure and quick, remember I've paid you extra, don’t want my children to see you hacking at me”
