HBO’s “The New Pope” is down to two more episodes and it’s going to be an explosive moment for viewers.
Debut date: MONDAY, MARCH 2 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)
Sofia (Cécile de France) sets out to bring an ashamed Brannox (John Malkovich) back to the Vatican from the Dolomites. Warned by Bauer of the Church’s demise unless immediate action is taken, Voiello (Silvio Orlando) is called upon to make things right and, later, mourns a tragic loss. The nuns appeal to an unaccommodating Assente.
Episode 9 (Season finale)
Debut date: MONDAY, MARCH 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)
John Paul III (John Malkovich) addresses his followers with a message of love that resonates. A historic meeting of the minds occurs after six children and their teacher are taken hostage on the island of Ventotene. As the Church prepares for battle, Voiello (Silvio Orlando) receives a visit from a man close to the caliph and a rescue mission has an unexpected conclusion.
