"Da Vinci's Demons" Episode 4 "The Magician" starz TV series review

Who would have made the link between a pomegranate and a cluster bomb? Lots going on in this episode. Grandpa Medici - "the magician", Lucrezia's machinations (stitching up Becchi and now Leonardo), Riario's funky spectacles, a nasty public execution scene called "The Wheel" (this was the Renaissance answer to reality TV), the Medici's wealth from alum (fascinating historical detail) and realising that younger bro Medici has integrity and a bit of nous.
Enjoyed the flashback about 14 year old Leo. Don't trust fellow artista Bottocelli. Leo arrested as a sodomite! Where does he find the time?
