Jack meets with Uncle Will on the street. Will wants an answer to his offer from the previous episode, to join forces against Silas. Jack won't give one yet, and expresses glee that his uncle is buying Unity News Network (UNN), the largest news station in the country. Jack wants to be involved with it, because Silas needs the media today, so if Jack is controlling the media, his father will kiss his ass. Will gives him the hard sell about joining forces, and Jack says letting him control the station would help him make his decision. I feel like this whole storyline is going to get a lot more interesting when Will's son shows up next week. Um, spoiler alert.
Silas is raging against a valet who spilled coffee on his shirt. The queen placates him until Thomasina comes in and reminds him that he has a meeting. Silas is all annoyed and wants to reschedule, but Thomasina reminds him that he's already rescheduled this meeting twice. Rose finds out the meeting is with Katrina Ghent, and her feathers seem a bit ruffled. Silas insists on rescheduling yet again and kind of glances at his wife to see if she's buying his insistence that he doesn't want to have the meeting. Nice touch by Ian McShane, there. I mean, that's one moment among many awesome moments that he brings to the show.
In the castle foyer, the security guards (can I just go ahead and call them Rosencrantz and Guildenstern yet?) gossip about how hot Katrina Ghent (played by Leslie Bibb) is and how she's a former centerfold, as Ms. Ghent herself paces around nearby. Thomasina shows up and says the king needs to reschedule. Katrina tries to bribe her (so we know she's got money to spare) to get an audience with the king. Katrina also reveals that she knows Thomasina has an institutionalized sister and pays for her care. So she's hot, beautiful and she does her homework. Thomasina is impressed, but she's still not taking the bribe.
At the rally, some flunky is trying to convince the angry crowd that they'll all be given new homes and new jobs in the resettlement. Ethan yells out that it's all crap, and points out that even his brother the hero is there to protest. Some rando expresses pride in David's actions, and then asks what he thinks about the situation. David gives a big speech about how his father and brother died fighting for their land, but he thinks that peace (and the resulting end of soldiers' deaths) is more important than a piece of land. There is grumbling in the crowd, and then Ethan asks what the king will do if the people refuse to comply. David says that they can stay, but they'll be citizens of Gath. Ethan starts yelling about standing against the king as David begs him to stop, but the crowd has caught fire and it's too late. They start chanting, "Our Blood, Our Land!" and tearing down the Gilboan flag. You say you want a revolution...
