The Crown Season 1 Episode 7 “Scientia Potentia Est” :- Watch The Crown Season 1 Episode 7 “Scientia Potentia Est” on Youtube on Fire, Knowledge is power. That’s this episode’s title when translated from Latin to English and it certainly serves as the overwhelming theme. We open with little Elizabeth taking private queen lessons at Eton. She learns about the balancing act between the government and the monarchy, a.k.a. “the efficient and dignified.” When Elizabeth asks why she isn’t learning what the other students spend their time on, her tutor tells her it would be, “undignified.” Jumping to the present, Elizabeth still feels she lacks the necessary education to be Queen and gets into an argument with her mother. “I know almost nothing,” she says. The Queen Mother claims she thought she gave Elizabeth the education she needed. We see Elizabeth’s lack of knowledge in her session with Churchill when she asks the P.M. to refresh her memory about atomic bombs, Soviet Russia, and U.S. President Eisenhower as Anthony Eden flies to America to speak about what they should do about Russia. Sidenote: We get a corgi sighting! Can we please have more corgi sightings? In private secretary drama, Tommy is retiring and Elizabeth wants her old secretary Martin to take over. Martin always seemed more warm and friendly when he was Elizabeth’s secretary before her ascension to the throne. It all sounds like a great idea and Martin accepts the post, despite being the Junior Private Secretary at Elizabeth’s urging. During their conversation, she asks Martin to find her a tutor. That’s something I doubt she would have ever asked Tommy for.
