Episode 3

Robert Aske, the leader of the northern rebellion, unexpectedly receives a personal letter from King Henry inviting him to court. After meeting with Aske, Henry magnanimously offers a pardon to all of the rebels as a demonstration of his understanding, on one condition: that they each take an oath confessing to treason and swearing allegiance to the crown and the work of the Reformation.

Surprises are in store for Henry as well: his daughter Mary reunites him with his estranged five-year-old daughter Elizabeth (by Anne Boleyn). Though this is unexpected, Henry is delighted to be surrounded by his family for Christmas—especially when Queen Jane informs the king that she is finally pregnant.
