So, because of that scene where Antonio (I think? Micheletto's lover) first shows up at MamaMicheletto's house, I thought that he was Micheletto's brother. So when they started stripping at the graveyard, I honestly thought for a moment that the show was going into actual incest, gay incest too boot. Between this show and recently rereading A Game of Thrones (and watching that show), I see incest as if I were an eight-year-old moppet and incest was dead people.
I think his name was Augustino, but I thought he was Micheletto's brother too when he came into the house. When he showed up at the graveyard, I thought that his "brother" had helped kill Micheletto's father and that's why they were there, so when they started stripping I was like whoa, did they kill their dad because he found out they were having gay incestuous sex?! Like you, I watch Game of Thrones so apparently I am now seeing incest everywhere too.
I actually said "YES!" out loud when Cesare stabbed Sforza in the hand. That alone was enough to make me happy but once he stabbed him in the throat and then started gutting him, I started clapping my hands. Then I started wondering if my gleeful reaction to murder meant I'd end up like Micheletto. I only wish that they had modern technology so that Cesare could have recorded stabbing Giovanni and shown it to Lucrezia later. I guess a bloody knife will have to suffice. I don't know if I've been so happy to see a smarmy jackass die this season (please tell me there's no way that olde tyme-y healers could keep Sforza alive after all those wounds). Maybe Tyler on Revenge, but even that didn't make me cheer the way this attack did.
They really really do. Rodrigo should get out of town more often. Then again, I wonder what his reaction to the holy trinity of Lucrezia, Vanozza, and Giulia working together to make the brothels nicer in exchange for getting dirt on all of his cardinals will be. He might approve in theory and then take it back when the cardinals get pissed about being blackmailed.
People really get shit done when Rodrigo is away, don't they?
I fully support this new (if probably temporary) trend! I don't want to sound ageist, but I do not need to see Jeremy Irons naked every week. I've seen enough of his movies that I could live the rest of my life without seeing him naked ever again. Francois Arnaud, on the other hand, is welcome to be naked much more often. It was also nice to see Micheletto with his lover (heh, I feel like that creepy couple on SNL for using the word "lover"). I just wish it hadn't ended so badly.
This weeks gratuitous sex scenes didn't involve Rodrigo for once.
On a shallow note, Augustino's hair reminded me so much of Paolo on Friends. I checked the credits though, and Augustino was played by Darwin Shaw, not Cosimo Fusco.
