The Borgias Recap: “The Purge”
Later, Lucrezia invited Cesare to her bedroom to see her wedding gown. When he entered, he was shocked to see her lying naked on top of it. She acted as if all was totally normal, to his extreme discomfort. She was looking for love and compliments, and nearly succeeded in seducing him. Cesare was lying beside her in bed, and they were just about to kiss, when the dressmaker knocked. The interruption spooked Cesare, and he promptly left.
Things really started heating up between Cesare and Lucrezia this week! FYI, it was awesome. Despite the wrongness because of the incest, I’ve shipped this couple pretty hard ever since the first episode.
Also, I think viewers were supposed to. Incest amongst the Borgias has been rumored since their actual lifetimes. Although, it very well could have just been slander by their enemies, it’s often been romanticized. No one’s been more guilty of this most recently, than this show.
