In episode 2 of this 3 part historical drama, Catesby (Kit Harington) and his close friend Thomas Wintour (Edward Holcroft) travel to mainland Europe to seek the assistance of the Catholic King of Spain, but the brutal actions of the King’s representative, the Constable of Castile (Pedro Casablanc), force Catesby to find allegiances in his own country.
In England, Lord Cecil (Mark Gatiss) enlists a spy, and puts pressure on Catesby’s cousin, Anne Vaux (Liv Tyler), in hopes of determining his whereabouts. In Flanders, Catesby and Wintour are introduced to Guy Fawkes (Tom Cullen), whose expertise in logistics and explosives could prove helpful. Returning to England, Catesby and his supporters work out the logistics for a bold plan to overthrow King James (Derek Riddell).
