Fabien's loyalty to the king earns him scant reward from the king in the light of recent events whilst Gaston is returned to court and offers to help Sophie escape her dismal marriage to the vile Cassel. The devious Montespan attempts to convince the paranoid king that that Marie-Therese is having an affair with the honest Father Pascal but Gaston takes deadly action to save the queen whilst Louis decides he will personally lead his army against the Dutch, giving the queen the regency in his absence. Meanwhile Claudine, gaining respect for her unpaid work with the poor, attempts to probe how the toxin entered Versailles as Louis appears to be its latest victim.
