1536:- Now seeing Jane Seymour as his hope for a son Henry instructs Thomas to get rid of Anne and a group of Catholic courtiers also want her out of the way. Arrogant and convinced that she still wields power Anne makes the mistake of slapping Jane Rochford, who informs Thomas of the men with whom Anne has cuckolded her husband. Young musician Mark Smeaton, devoted to the flirtatious Anne, quickly crumbles under Thomas's questioning, naming the nobles who have had sex with Anne and Thomas is quietly ruthless in his interrogation of them. As a result Anne and her alleged lovers are put on trial with Thomas as prosecutor. Consequently there are executions - the highest profile being that of Anne herself, watched by Thomas Cromwell.
