Leonardo Discovers an Enemy Hidden in His Midst
After spending eight episodes traipsing around with the Inca, Leonardo and the gang head back to Florence on this week’s Da Vinci’s Demons. Lucrezia’s time with the Turkish witch leads her to reveal there are two Popes, one of which seeks to bring a holy war. Lorenzo and the boys arrive to discover Duke Frederico has sacked Florence and taken hostages. Meanwhile, Lorenzo is caught in Alfonso and the Evil Pope’s grasp after Lo took a huge gamble and lost. Episode 209 brought most of the characters’ stories together while the series hurtles towards the end of the season. “The Enemies of Men” was gripping, exciting, and full of surprises.

Lucrezia spends her time in Istanbul being tortured and questioned by the Sultan’s witch, and ends up revealing the truth about the papacy.

This seems to be according to Lucrezia’s plan and hopefully we’ll discover just what that is in next week’s season finale. (Cont…)
