Re: Reign - The CW

This week's episode drove me around the bend. I didn't start screaming at my television, but it was close run thing.

It started out with potential, with England invading Scotland. But when the episode got down into the character bits of who's kissing whom and who wants to marry whom, I kept going, "No! No! NO!" And Tomas...

If it weren't twenty years too early, I'd say that Tomas is part of a Walsingham plot to bust up the Hiberno-French alliance. (The whole legitimation story sounds fishy to me.)

One historical note: Calais will be lost by England forever within the year. It will be Mary's uncle, Francis, the Duke of Guise, who will take the fortified town.
