As the second episode of The White Queen kicks off, it appears things are going well for the newly-wed King Edward IV (Max Irons) and the beautiful Elizabeth Woodville (Rebecca Ferguson).

However, the honeymoon period will soon come to an end. Pregnant with her first royal child, Elizabeth will have her coronation. While the people of the land are flushed with excitement at the royal proceedings, the royals themselves fret about the sex of their unborn child. Will it be a boy fir to rule in his father's place, or will the family be saddled with a "useless" girl?

While Elizabeth and Edward work to marry her siblings off in advantageous position, the cunning Lord Warwick (James Frain), also known as the Kingmaker, will be looking to increase his own power. With two daughters, the adviser will look to get his young girls married to Edward's brothers, George (David Oakes) and Richard (Aneurin Barnard).

As the war progresses, an important captive will make it appear that Edward will soon have the upper hand. However, over in King Henry's camp, the staunch and severe Lady Margaret Beaufort (Amanda Hale) is still plotting and hoping that her son, Henry, will eventual regain the throne.

Fast forward a few years and things are not going so well for Edward and Elizabeth. Two men close to the King, including a blood relation, will betray him. In the meantime, Elizabeth's family will suffer the consequences.

The White Queen airs Saturday at 8 p.m. on Starz.
