The Winter's Tale - Episode 1 - Fishy, Fishy
King Polixenes of Bohemia bids adieu to his childhood friend, King Leontes of Sicilia, after a visit of nine months. Leontes implores him not to leave and prevails on his pregnant wife, Hermione, to persuade him to stay. When Polixenes gives in to Hermione, Leontes goes mad with jealousy and paranoia, convinced that his wife is carrying his best friend’s child, not his own. He orders his top advisor, Camillo, to poison Polixenes.
