If not, he shall henceforth be known as Edward the Pushover, or more charitably, Edward the Forgiver. On the receiving end of his mercy this week were Anne Neville, the daughter of the man who turned coat more often than a Savile Row tailor, and Lady Margaret Beaufort, a Lancastrian in York's clothing.
FullHD1x6: Summer Nude Episode 6 Watch Online Free -seeking Edward's clemency towards the two women was more likely avarice and pragmatism disguised, making him, what? Edward the Cunning? Little brother George the Smirker was the real villain of course, planning to milk the cash cow of his imprisoned sister-in-law until Richard the looks-so-much-like-Frodo-Baggins-it's-disorienting did the honourable thing and married her.
It was two weddings and three funerals on The White Queen this week, which was looking handsomer than ever. It's as if somebody turned down the brightness settings on the fifteenth century over these past couple of episodes, giving us eerie, moody, and regal, rather than the sixty degree wash hygiene of the first half of the series. The tableau that Anne stumbled into of Isabella and her ladies-in-waiting at their embroidery was like something out of a van Eyck, while Lady Margaret's deathbed meeting with her mother was pure Gothic nastiness. Why the drama waited this long to show us the darkness and depth of the period setting I couldn't say, but I'm delighted the atmosphere has finally tipped up.
Also late to the party, but no less welcome is a sense of humour. There was a wonderful moment or two of Julia Davis-ish comedy in Lady Margaret and Sir Reginald's marriage brokering double-act this week. "You may tell him, I have had saints knees since childhood" Margaret told her envoy, who was in search of something besides her enormous fortune to recommend his Lady to future husbands. Between that and her Dr Seuss moment decrying Richard as "as loyal as a hog, as loyal as a dog", and I was reaching for my petition making-materials to demand a Maggie and Reggie spin-off.
FullHD1x6: Summer Nude Episode 6 Watch Online Free White Queen is by far at its best on the theme of women being royally gypped by the establishment, and this week's focus on Anne and Elizabeth's woes gave it plenty of scope to stage that. "No horse today, Anne", "Go to your room, Anne" the dowager Princess of Wales was told time and again, coming up against guards and brick walls whenever she attempted to assert any agency. Elizabeth too, had to contend with an unfaithful husband (Edward the Fertile-as-a-bull?), a still-birth, and the removal of her infant son to Wales as another bargaining chip in her husband's political campaign. Perhaps it says more about me than The White Queen, but I'm much more of a fan of its cynicism than its honeyed romances and clandestine Yew Garden snogging.
