The Borgias S02E02 Paolo



The Borgias is a historical-fiction drama television series created by Neil Jordan; it debuted in 2011 and was canceled in 2013.

The series is set around the turn of the 16th century and follows the Borgia family. It stars Jeremy Irons as Pope Alexander VI with François Arnaud as Cesare, Holliday Grainger as Lucrezia and David Oakes as Juan. Colm Feore also stars as Cardinal della Rovere.

The series follows the rise of the Borgia family to the pinnacle of the Roman Catholic Church and their struggles to maintain their grip on power. The beginning of the first season depicts the election of Rodrigo Borgia to the papacy through simony and bribery, with the help of his sons, Cesare and Juan. Upon winning the election, Rodrigo Borgia becomes Pope Alexander VI, which then thrusts him and his family deep into the murky heart of politics in fifteenth-century Europe: from shifting loyalties within the College of Cardinals to the ambitions of the kings of Europe to the venomous rivalries between the noble families of Italy at the time.

The Pope decides to see for himself the conditions in the streets of Rome and after realising the extreme poverty enlists Giulia to try and tackle the issue. Paolo, the father of Lucrezia's child, arrives in Rome seeking her. With the help of a prostitute he manages to meet Lucrezia again but they are seen by Juan who is angry that his sister would love a commoner. Cesare and his mother organise one night for Paolo and Lucrezia to be together again so that he can meet his child, on the condition he leaves Rome immediately after. This he does only to be caught and killed by Juan.

An abject lesson in the dangers of travel in the old days. You were victim to highwaymen. At this point in the show you see the quick response from a potential victim. It is a universal thing the law of the jungle is the only law. The small concealable revolver probably made the most of keeping the peace. The warning shot with spark and flame and noise inspires respect to be sure. We are not as vulnerable today with our police and telephones. In a societal collapse expect the unexpected. 

Feel no remorse. The potential robbers, rapists and murderers would have been content to leave you at the side of the road. They chose to open a portal to the karma they were manifesting. That was their free will choice. Your response to their choice comes without burdens. Don't make any. As you go in a failed state security and stamina will be paramount.
