During The EventEdit
Mary enters the room and goes to talk with Simon who's chained to a chair awaiting his execution. Mary asks him why his seal is so similar to the royal English seal, he tells her its because the queen is his cousin by marriage. When Mary is about to leave, Tomás orders her to join him. He graps her tight and when she complains he threatens to send for her wipping boy. Francis and Sebastian come to help Mary get out of his grip. Francis threatens to expose Tomás as the spy who tipped off the English if he doesn't let go of Mary, Tomás then leaves. Mary, Francis and Bash plot to find proof of Tomás' guilt and Simon's innocence.
Later Lola meets Bash and Francis outside letting them know that Miguel wasn't in his chambers but that a footman saw him leaving with Tomás heading for the Game Trails. They come to the realisation that he isn't gone hunting but that he is going to kill Miguel. Bash and Francis leave to go after Tomás.
Still inside Greer meets Leith dressed in the costume she snuck to him so they could meet. He tells her about the reason behind Michaelmas before they share a kiss. Mary left the party and met with the prostitute to persuade her to state that Tomás is guilty. Bash and Francis arrive at the game trails and Francis kills Tomás when Bash and Tomás were fighting.
Soon after at the party, Kenna persuades the King to wait until Francis, Bash and Mary's return before he has Simon executed so that they may prove his innocence. When Henry asks Kenna to stay at court, Francis, Bash, and Mary arrive with Judith and Miguel as witnesses to Simon's innocence.
