The Young Pope 1x3
Lenny plans to lead a resurgence of conservative Christianity as his former mentor, Cardinal Spencer, struggles with Cardinal Voiello over their inability to control Lenny. Lenny forces Voiello to reveal that liberal forces in the College of Cardinals blocked Spencer’s election as Pope, resulting in an agreement between the two men to use Lenny as a puppet. When Lenny threatens to excommunicate Voiello, the liberal cardinal is forced to swear loyalty to him. Later, a chance encounter with Esther, the wife of a member of the Swiss Guard, results in Lenny having a seizure in her presence.
