The Tudors: The Horse is Symbolic! Get it?

The series ends on a typically subtle note, with Henry being hounded by his dead wives and chased around by Death on a horse. Sadly, Death only manages to catch up with Charles Brandon.

The Tudors: Love For Sale

Henry plays the courtly lover with Jane Seymour, and then has a nasty fall during a jousting tournament, sending everyone into a panic and possibly causing Anne’s miscarriage. Henry decides his marriage is over and wants to move on to wife #3.

The Tudors: Golden World

Katherine finally shuffles off the mortal coil, which pleases Anne almost as much as being pregnant again. Cromwell’s ruthlessly suppressing religious houses, resulting in a whole new underclass, and Henry meets Jane Seymour.

The Tudors: Reap What You Sow

Cromwell starts spreading the word of the Reformation, while Anne gets increasingly crazier, more paranoid, and more isolated. Henry’s starting to get more than a little bored with her.

The Tudors: Mr. Softie

As Henry moves closer to becoming a true sociopath, all the men around him prove they’ve got feelings. Brandon has some cute father-son time with his mysterious kid, Cromwell and Chapuys show their soft spots, and George Boleyn hooks up with Mark Smeaton. In other news, More gets his ass thrown in jail, and Anne, who’s pregnant again, puts her cousin in Henry’s bed.

The Tudors: First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage…

…then comes a very sparsely attended coronation. Henry kicks Catholicism to the curb and married Anne, who’s all kinds of knocked up. Our hapless assassin, Brereton, fails yet again to kill her before she can give birth to her daughter, Elizabeth.

The Tudors: Paris, Je T’Aime

The church submits to Henry, which forces More to resign his office and contemplate martyrdom. Henry and Anne take a vacation to France to make friends with Francis again and have sex.
