As Catesby (Kit Harington) and his men load 6,000 pounds of gunpowder into a secret cellar underneath Parliament, Father Garnet (Peter Mullan) is visited by the Constable of Castile (Pedro Casablanc), who pressures him to reveal details of Catesby’s plot.
An unwitting revelation allows the King (Derek Riddell) to catch wind of the plan, with Lord Cecil (Mark Gatiss) tasked to root out the conspirators. Anne (Liv Tyler) implores Catesby to flee the country for the sake of his young son (Tom Sweet), as Cecil and his henchmen close in.
