Four years and six wives after, "The Tudors" will draw the curtain down with the final years of King Henry VIII of England. In the series finale, Henry defeats one final political foe but faces mortality and the ghosts of his former queens, who appear for a final confrontation. Two clips from the series finale recount the time the aging King had a conversation with Charles Brandonas as well as him giving final goodbyes to his closest ones. The talk between Brandon and the King discusses about man's greatest enemy which is time. The teary farewell goes to Henry's daughters Mary and Elizabeth, and last wife Catherine Parr. With "The Tudors" coming to an end, Showtime is left to depend on "The Borgias" as the new historical drama. Instead of following a kingdom, the new series is about a family's patriarch Rodrigo who becomes Pope, propelling him, his two sons Cesare and Juan, and daughter, Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance. It will premiere 2011. Source & Preview

His ulcerous leg is constantly in pain and he now requires glasses to read. One clip from the episode reveals Queen Catherine showing Henry a book she wrote and dedicated to him. The other clip sees the King in the court room, criticizing his clergy and noblemen for discord, malice and envy. Political events continue to be tumultuous and exhausting. The profligate Earl of Surrey, a noble not known for his sense of judgment, loses 600 men in an unprovoked battle in France, endangering Henry's recent success in Boulogne. News arrives that the King of France is preparing for war and worse, the Emperor Charles - England's recent ally - has seized English ships and properties. Other things to be found in the episode are the rising influence of Bishop Gardiner who is determined to trap Queen Catherine, and Earl of Surrey who is sentenced to death on charges of treason in a one-sided trial.
