The Borgias Season Finale Sneak Peeks: Lucrezia and Rodrigo Face Off

the borgiasThe Borgia family has managed to survive a pretty tremendous amount of conflict in the first two seasons of The Borgias. Enemies have been dispatched, alliances have been formed, and every inter-family squabble has been swept under Rodrigo’s papal robe in favor of presenting a united front and preserving the family. But that inability to face their problems and worry about their image vs. their reality has made the second season of The Borgias quite a tense affair, culminating in the shocking murder of Juan at the end of the last episode. Can The Borgia family manage to get through their hardest time yet and emerge mostly in tact?

Judging by the sneak peeks of next week’s season finale, titled “The Confession”, they may not be able to bounce back quite as quickly as they have in the past. Lucrezia’s last confrontation with Juan only solidified her burning hatred for her brother, which had been ignited for good upon Paolo’s death, and she can’t quite bring herself to mourn for him. Rodrigo isn’t having any of that, of course, as Juan was his favorite child and his death dashed any dreams he had of one son in armor and another in the cloth. Lucrezia has been growing away from her father during the second season of The Borgias, defying him regarding the recent marriage proposals, and this is further proof that the two may not be able to see eye to eye ever again.

Elsewhere on The Borgias, della Rovere isn’t giving up on his attempt on the Pope’s life. Antonello may not have gotten the job done in the last episode, putting the poison in the water before Rodrigo decided on wine, but that doesn’t mean that the ultimate goal isn’t still obtainable. The fact that Antonello is so close in vicinity to Rodrigo means that it will only take a minor slight of hand and intuitive skills in order to take out the pontiff; Rome is so close to chaos that della Rovere can smell it in the air and there’s no turning back. It’s time.

The second season finale of The Borgias airs Sunday, June 17th at 10:00 on Showtime. The show has already been renewed for a third season of 10 episodes.
