‘The Royals’ Season 4 Episode 4 Preview: “Black as His Purpose Did the Night Resemble” Clip and Plot

The anger Prince Liam harbors toward his brother, King Robert, exploded into a wild confrontation between the siblings in season four episode three of The Royals. Liam wound up pulling a gun on Robert and might have done something unforgiveable if it hadn’t been for Princess Eleanor hitting him on the head and knocking him out.

The episode also found Princess Eleanor committed to helping a sick girl who didn’t want to miss out on a school dance or on her chance to be with the boy she had a crush on. Jasper continued recuperating from his gunshot wound and the relationship between he and Eleanor heated up. Meanwhile, Robert continued to audition potential Queens.

Season four episode three ended with Jasper in an ambulance heading back to the palace. King Robert (obviously with some outside assistance) managed to make the electricity go out all over London just as Jasper’s journey to the palace began.
