Both Pope Alexander and Cesare realize that Lucrezia is now being held hostage in Naple and that the King has allied himself with Caterina Sforza. As such, any attack on Caterina's Forli castle will result in Lucretia's death. Cesare leaves to rescue her. He does so without Micheletto who has eliminated his lover but has now disappeared. In Naples meanwhile, the court celebrates the festival of Bacchus and Lucrezia has made plans for her escape by spiking the wine with a sleeping potion. Once safely in Rome, Alfonso begins to suspect that Lucrezia and Cesare's feelings extend beyond simple sibling relations. The Pope conspires with Mattai the Hebrew to control the supply of sulfur, used to make gunpowder.

The original Latin spelling was 'sulpur,' but this was Hellenized to 'sulphur.' Although both spellings, sulphur and sulfur, are correct in modern English, depending on country, sulfur is more widely accepted currently.

The title of this episode has nothing to do with the infamous Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when Guy Fawkes attempted to kill King James by blowing up the English Parliament.
