* HilariousInHindsight: Creator/NatalieDormer's character, Anne Boleyn, has a gay brother and is falsely accused for adultery. [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire Maergery Tyrell]], which Dormer [[Series/AGameOfThrones played]] later on, is an {{Expy}} of Anne Boleyn who also has a gay brother and is also charged with adultery, though the latter is only in the [[Literature/AFeastForCrows books]].

** Probably the point: Anne of Cleves was considered quite attractive by most people who weren't Henry, and if you look at the portraits by Hans Holbein the Younger, she even looks a bit like Joss Stone. Hence it being about how irrationally temperamental Henry was rather than about her actual attractiveness. In real life, it's quite likely that Henry was more interested by then in pursuing the 16 year old Catherine Howard, and so needed an out from the marriage.

In real life, it's quite likely that Henry was more interested by then in pursuing the 16 year old Catherine Howard, and so needed an out from the marriage. As well as a reaction to her lack of attraction to him - understandable given the state of Henry in real life by this point, but obviously a thing he would take umbrage with.

** Also, Thomas Cranmer's wife in the dinner scene with Cranmer and Cromwell, telling off the top reformers in England for not moving fast enough, and adding a verbal slapdown to the jokes about her being illegal as well as outspoken, "two reasons to hide her." Her lecture finishes with "Now you can put me back in my box!" aka the box she was mailed to England in, that Cranmer still uses to hide her when traveling around the city.

** When William Brereton is arrested, the King's men find him stark naked, kneeling before an altar and praying. The guardsmen take it completely in stride, which makes the scene funnier.

** Remind us: why was the woman three queens back executed? ''That's'' right, for adultery. And what ''happened'' to the men who were accused of being her lovers? ''They'' were executed too, right again! So, explain to us...''how'' is it a good idea to have mad passionate sex with your lord and master's new trophy wife, and vice versa with the staff?

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Thomas Culpepper is shown to attack a random villager's home, raping her and murdering her husband. While this scene certainly happened in real life, it is completely unrelated to the rest of the show, and is never referred to in any way again.

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency?: An initial reaction to hearing Joss Stone would be playing Anne of Cleves, casting a singer with no previous acting experience in a difficult part that also involves speaking with a foreign accent sounds like a recipe for disaster. As it turned out, she was very good. Although one still wonders why she was cast as the wife Henry deemed [[HollywoodHomely too ugly for him to be able to procreate with]]. She was initially supposed to play Jane Seymour but had to drop out due to scheduling conflict. (Although, courtiers writing after Henry's death apparently said that Anne of Cleaves was the most beautiful of Henry's wives and some people think that Henry became impotent at this point due to weight gain and blamed Anne.)
