The White Queen Season 1 Episode 8 Review

You can tell we’re approaching the end of The White Queen’s long and epic tale of throne-hopping, since this eighth episode takes the biggest time jump we’ve seen thus far. We even get a helpful summary that catches us up on where everyone is and who they’re supporting but, of course, none of this is the same by the episode’s end.

We lose a big player, for one, with Edward’s lifestyle finally catching up with him in more ways than one. It’s jarring to lose one of our main characters two and a half hours before the end of the series, but that’s history I suppose, and we’ve always known its Elizabeth we’re really supposed to be watching. As her husband lies dying and her now-adolescent children surround his deathbed, she’s in no position to argue with his appointment of Richard as their young son’s Lord Protector, even if her gut tells her that it’s a monumentally bad idea.
