The King, obese and old, realizes what can defeat any man alive and bids his farewell to his successors.
Four years and six wives after, "The Tudors" will draw the curtain down with the final years of King Henry VIII of England. In the series finale, Henry defeats one final political foe but faces mortality and the ghosts of his former queens, who appear for a final confrontation.
Two clips from the series finale recount the time the aging King had a conversation with Charles Brandonas as well as him giving final goodbyes to his closest ones. The talk between Brandon and the King discusses about man's greatest enemy which is time. The teary farewell goes to Henry's daughters Mary and Elizabeth, and last wife Catherine Parr.
With "The Tudors" coming to an end, Showtime is left to depend on "The Borgias" as the new historical drama. Instead of following a kingdom, the new series is about a family's patriarch Rodrigo who becomes Pope, propelling him, his two sons Cesare and Juan, and daughter, Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance. It will premiere 2011.
