Young and charming, newly elected Pius XIII, aka Lenny Belardo, is the first American Pope in history.

Alvy not only reviews the many ups and many downs of their relationship, but also reviews the many facets of his makeup that led to him starting to date Annie.

They do become friends with the potential of becoming more than just friends as she knows that being the "other woman" in Yale's life is not a long term role that she wants.
