The Winter's Tale - Episode 2 - I'll Spay 'Em All
Camillo assures Leontes he’ll carry out his orders but secretly informs Polixenes of the plot against his life. Together, they flee to Polixenes’ kingdom of Bohemia. An enraged Leontes claims their flight is proof of their guilt in conspiring against his life and his crown. He orders his son, Mamillius, to be taken from Hermione’s chambers and has her imprisoned on charges of adultery and conspiracy. Hermione insists on her innocence and vows that Leontes will regret what he’s done. The King’s Lords, including the elderly Antigonus, beg Leontes to bring the Queen back. Antigonus goes so far as to stake his own daughters’ honor on Hermione’s innocence. Meanwhile, Antigonus’s wife, Paulina, goes to visit Hermione in prison, where she has just given birth to a baby girl. Paulina asks Hermione’s Lady in Waiting, Emilia, to get permission from the Queen for her to bring the newborn baby to Leontes in the hope that seeing the child will soften his heart.
