All of Isabella's hopes have been placed in her grandson, Miguel de la Paz. However, his sudden death sounds the alarm amongst the Catholic Monarchs: in reality, there is as much ambition in the heart of Archduke Philip as there is pain and desperation in Isabella's heart. The only feasible option open to the King and Queen is to bring Juana and her husband to Spain so that Parliament can swear them in as the legitimate heirs, in spite of all the problems this may cause. The situation is very different in Flanders, where Philip has fulfilled his dream of having a male heir and now imagines himself occupying the thrones of Castile and Aragon. In Granada, the Moors' rebellion is so violent that even Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba himself is incapable of quashing it within the time period required.

In order to celebrate the Queen's birthday, an archery tournament is going to be held that only nobles can enter. However, Gonzalo decides to do everything in his power to obtain the prize, so that he can pay for the studies that Sátur's son would like to undertake. The Court of the Inquisition sentences the Marchioness of Santillana with the penalty of death. The Commissioner tries to persuade Lucrecia to flee from the town, but his plans are thwarted.
Current Affairs Commando
This week, "Comando Actualidad" will focus on a number of individuals whose pain is invisible or difficult to diagnose, but whose lives have become impossible or almost impossible.
They have phobias, a terrible fear of leaving the house or an obsession with cleanliness or with safety.
In other cases the problem is purely physical: they cannot breathe in dust or certain smells, they are allergic to electricity or telephone waves or they simply fall asleep in any place and at any time.
Day-to-day life is a struggle and, quite frankly they lead "miserable lives".
The big city. The perfect environment for go-getters, swindlers, thieves, thugs, mafia members and corrupt policemen. Abel is a loner whose job is to collect payment from debtors using expeditious methods. Kay is a young girl who steals cars and does small-time robberies. Sebas, her father receives stolen goods and is always mixed-up in trouble. Garro, an inspector from the Crime Squad of rather dubious honesty, some Kosovar robbers, some Mexican thugs, a Turkish hired assassin... All of them hoping to do the last job, the big job... A bag full of jewels could be just what's needed.
This week, "Un país para comérselo" presents the best of Andorran cuisine and its most spectacular landscapes. The actress, Ana Duato, will tour the mountainous regions of this small country, where truffles are cultivated, a key ingredient of the high-mountain recipe known as "trintxat con boletus". We will also discover how the Andorrans have managed to make honey and wine at a very high altitude, whilst also adapting the tobacco plant to their harsh climate. Ana will sample "escudella", "jamón a la miel" (ham with honey), "arroz de montaña" (mountain-style rice), "canelones" (cannelloni) and trout. She will also meet Albert Llovera, a paraplegic sportsman and the very first rally pilot with a disability.
Factory of Ideas
"Fábrica de Ideas", TVE's program for promoting entrepreneurship and innovation, begins its sixth season. The first episode will feature Ricardo Albiñana, the founder of one of the most successful advertising production companies in Spain. The experts will interview Anxo Pérez, creator of a revolutionary online system to study Chinese in eight months, as well as Laura Martín, an entrepreneur who has founded a chain of centers specializing in the elimination of lice.
In this fourth show, the debate will be adorned with sweets of all sizes, shapes and colors. Patricia Pérez, José María Íñigo, Elena Martín and Laura Santolaya will accompany Forges in this debate about gluttony. Each guest will talk about the dishes that give them the greatest amount of pleasure. They will recall their childhood and confess whether they had a sweet tooth or not when they were small. The guests will also be given a series of recipes in which a number of words have been erased, and they will have to guess what the dishes are in each case. As is customary, one of the four guests will be subjected to the "gluttonymeter", a machine that is capable of detecting just how glutton they really are.
