Watch Da Vinci's Demons Season 1 Episode 2 ‘The Serpent’ Online

Watch Da Vinci's Demons Season 1 Episode 2 ‘The Serpent’ Online. The last week the historical drama series that features the life of young Leonardo Da Vinci premiered on Starz. After the very successful pilot episode, Starz renewed the series for season 2. The Da Vinci's Demons depicts the "untold" (i.e. "fake") antics of Leonardo Da Vinci as the young artist and inventor gallivants around Renaissance-era Florence on various adventures. Reviews have been mixed, with some citing historical inaccuracy as a problem and others enjoying the all-out zaniness.

In the previous episode, we have seen Leonardo Da Vinci, who has swordfights and makes flying machines, builds amazing weapons for Florence and is driven by the pursuit of a much-mythologized book of ancient knowledge. In one scene, Da Vinci watches birds fly from a cage and sketches their movements. We see the birds’ freeze, as they do in his mind, and his sketches appear in place of the birds. It's a brilliant way to show us how Da Vinci's mind works. It was pretty awesome. But, the show also has some scenes not suitable for young audiences as there’s a graphic disembowelment or f-bomb or a scene of the Pope bathing with a young boy and holding a knife to his throat.

We get to see more of young Leonardo’s life as the Da Vinci's Demons Season 1 Episode 2 ‘The Serpent’ airs on Friday, April 19, 2013 on Starz at 10/9c. On this episode, Leonardo continues his quest for the Book of Leaves. The Pope’s nephew arrives and meets his spy. Leonardo’s war designs fail, causing a rift with the Medicis. The Pope learns of Leonardo’s prowess.
