Showtime's Emmy®-winning series covers a short but turbulent period in the life of Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), the most notorious sovereign in British history. In Season 3, Henry weds a third time, to demure noblewoman Jane Seymour, in the futile hope she will provide a male heir. Meanwhile, his once-loyal subjects form a rebellion known as the "Pilgrimage of Grace," to fight Henry's crusade against Catholicism. Another marriage follows, to Anne of Cleves (British pop star Joss Stone), whom the king soon finds frigid and, curiously, unattractive.
Episode 1 -In episode 301, the third season premiere, Henry VIII weds a third time, to shy, demure noblewoman Jane Seymour - a union that he and his advisors pray will result in a male heir; once-loyal subjects rebel against Henry's crusade against Catholicism.
Episode 2 -In episode 302, the rebellion now known as the "Pilgrimage of Grace" begins in earnest, with Henry dispatching Brandon to deal with the uprising; bedridden due to the recurrence of his jousting injury, Henry takes a new mistress: Lady Ursula Misseldon.
Episode 3 -In episode 303, Henry reconciles with his estranged daughters Mary and Elizabeth in time for the Christmas holidays, but betrays and brutally suppresses the rebellion against him after making conciliatory promises to the uprising's leaders.
Episode 4 -In episode 304, the leaders of the Pilgrimage of Grace uprising are put to death, but Brandon is disturbed by the cruelty and mercilessness of the suppression; Henry celebrates the birth of a son but his joy is short-lived as Queen Jane dies within days.
Episode 5 -In episode 305, Henry remains in seclusion while mourning the queen's death, an opportunity that enemies of the crown seize to murder several friends of the court; Cromwell is disturbed when Henry doesn't resist his new church's similarities to Catholicism.
Episode 6 -In episode 306, matchmaking begins in earnest as Cromwell schemes to secure the Reformation by marrying Henry to a Protestant wife - but the king's marital reputation precedes him; the condition of Henry's wounded leg turns life-threatening.
Episode 7 -In episode 307, war looms with France and Spain aligning against England with backing from Rome, so Henry agrees to a politically fortuitous marriage with Anne of Cleves (Joss Stone), a plain and unsophisticated German aristocrat he has never met.
Episode 8 -In episode 308, Henry moves swiftly to annul his loveless marriage to Anne of Cleves, and beds a new mistress, 17-year-old Katherine Howard; Princess Mary falls in love with Duke Philip of Bavaria; Cromwell's fall from favor is sudden and dramatic.
