This is the finale of the miniseries. Jack had worked on several structures in France while he is trying to look for his father’s family. Aliena with her baby followed Jack in France by following the trail of his carvings. In the evening Jack with Aliena decided to leave the place and return to Shiring. He also brought a stone that was discovered there releasing droplets of water by the evening and a book. On their way home, a woman distinguished the face of Jack that resembles to his father. Good thing that Aliena speak French and they are so lucky to have met Jack’s grandmother and his relatives. Sooner they returned to Kingsbridge. Waleran who is now the bishop offers new position to Philip but that would mean that he should obey all the things the Waleran wanted.
Jack and Aliena received a warmth welcome when they arrived at Kingsbridge. Jack has learned how to fullfill Tom (builder) dream’s of a cathedral filled with light. He brought a stone that believe to be miraculous that he used in the holy statue carvings. Kingsbridge became prosperous again as Jack tries to rebuild the cathedral and Philip has regain his priory in Kingsbridge. Bishop Waleran trick Alfred to get rid of Jack resulting to Alfred’s death. Jack has been accused by Alfred’s death and was captured by William Hamleigh who became the Sheriff appointed by Waleran. He was judge in front of the people with Waleran to hang him to death. But to Waleran’s surprise a dark secret was revealed from his past and now it pay backs time. He climb high to the cathedral to run from people but he fell down and died.
Richard finally became the Earl of Shiring without a problem. Aliena and Jack has been solemnized formally in church wedding by Prior Philip. After that event everything went good and no war were declared.
I just did some shortcuts in the story. I so love “The Pillars of the Earth”! I hope there will be movies and miniseries like this.
