't let Farad'n know
about our plans until they're done.
He doesn't have the stomach for it.
How dare you?
These robes are gifts from
Prince Farad'n. A gesture of goodwill.
An opportunity to ease
tension between the houses.
Javid arranged for this himself.
With the regent's approval, of course.
I had to satisfy myself.
Satisfy yourself?
That there was
no subterfuge, no danger.
You insinuated yourself
into a diplomatic matter...
that's none of your business.
The safety of the twins
is every bit my business.
You bloodless bitch.
How is it that I'm blessed with such an
extraordinary counselor as you, Irulan?
What devious finger of fate
turned you from a Corrino toad...
into a simpering Atreides
sycophant?
That's enough!
No, it's not nearly enough.
From now on, my niece and nephew
are no longer under your care.
- You can't do that.
- I am the regent of the empire.
I'm their guardian.
I rule in their name.
That's right.
And don't let them forget it.
Perhaps you should rest.
How can I rest, Mother, when I'm
surrounded by such incompetent fools?
Do you see what's become
of my world, Mother?
Do you see the chaos I must endure?
Yes, I see it.
I'm afraid I see it all too clearly.
- Get rid of them.
- Get out.
All of you, out.
Come.
Still the same arrogant
Bene Gesserit cow.
You must forgive my daughter, Irulan.
She let temper get in the way
of judgment this afternoon.
She let her words run away with her.
Do not concern yourself with me.
I know what it's like to be in her place.
I know how lonely it can be sometimes.
I understand.
At the same time, you're never alone.
There are always people who need you.
Life in a court can be suffocating.
Easy to lose your perspective.
I'm glad we can be honest.
I feel that I can trust you.
My only concern is for their safety.
Take care of your own well-being.
Thank you for your concern.
You're very important to me.
I will letAlia know that I bear no ill
feelings because of her harsh words.
You're very understanding.
There they are. Those two.
Can you see them?
We have a shuttle waiting.
Leto, come.
Hurry.
Anybody who had a hand in helping
the twins get out of the city...
must be arrested and brought to me.
I will make an example
of all who defy me.
Get out!
This is my mother's doing.
I want her dead.
- Now.
- No, my dear. Not just yet.
Patience, my dear.
Patience and calm.
That is the palliative
for fury and despair.
Everyone is turning against me.
Oh, don't worry, child.
There are many clever ways to rid
oneself of a troublesome witch.
Your efforts to the contrary, I suppose.
Well, unfortunately, my efforts
were, shall we say, interrupted...
by a wonderfully devious
and cruel little girl.
You took great pleasure
in the act, as I recall.
I had to admire your ruthlessness.
Had you only been a few years older--
Why am I even listening to you,
you perverted old fool?
Because I am here to help you.
Because I'm the only one you can trust.
What you must do
is take care of your mother in public.
Why don't you call in that lovely boy?
The priest.
Javid, eh?
Mix business with pleasure perhaps?
You were right, Muriz.
Her paranoia deepens
with each passing hour.
- She's ordered immediate retaliation.
- Good.
The more the repression,
the greater the rebellion.
The greater the rebellion...
the sooner our enemies
slaughter each other.
Get word to that Corrino witch.
Tell her we continue
to work our mischief.
Even though she's not
of council any longer...
I have asked Lady Jessica...
adored mother of Muad'Dib...
to join us for the ritual
of supplication.
We bring before the holy family
a Kedeshian troubadour...
a miserable wanderer...
who has lost everything
but the clothes on his back...
and now must beg the court for--
Mercy, Holy Mother.
I am Gadian Al-Fali...
naib of Sietch Gara Kulan.
My ladies, do not listen to this man.
His appeal is not approved.
I am here concerning
