Bah! I could swear that was the exact same scene I saw last week. What was different about the video?!

As for tonight's episode, well played, Catherine, bravo! She was quite brilliant and resourceful, covering up the death of the lady ambassador whom Henry accidentally pushed.

Poor Lola. She was ready to get an abortion, but Mary stopped her just in time. How pregnant is she anyway? It almost seems like it's only been a few days since she slept with Francis.

In the beginning, the royal couple said that they were returning from a 2 month long honeymoon, which may or may not have included transit.

Re: Reign - The CW

Last night was so schizophrenic. We had a surprisingly amusing black comedy with Henri and Catherine, interspersed with a 16th-century afterschool special about back alley abortions.

Lola's pregnancy wasn't a surprise from the moment she came out and said the dress was too small. Mary's naive reaction to the pregnancy was amusing -- and surprisingly in historical character (Mary was bright but not especially sharp) -- and I'm curious to see how far Reign pushes that.

Bash, oh Bash. The most sympathetic character on the series, frankly, and he's left to flail against the unfairness of life. Dude, you're a royal bastard. Life isn't fair for royal bastards -- and when Henri dies before too long you're going to find out that life really isn't fair. The best thing for him, frankly, would be to go to Scotland. He'd be out of Francis' reach there, and he could make himself useful to Mary de Guise. Of course, now he has Hot Hunter Woman to keep him company, so long as Jealous/Overprotective Brother doesn't do anything stupid. Rowan/Hot Hunter Woman is apparently a recurring character, so maybe Bash will stick around.

I completely forgot who Olivia was; she's Francis' ex-girlfriend.

And the utter lunacy of Henri and Catherine pinning the "suicide" of the Archduke's sister on the dead priest... Oh, I should have rolled my eyes at it, but it was too silly!

Also, since when did Bohemia have a fleet? It's a landlocked region and always was.

In the first clip, you see more of Francis between Mary's legs. In the second, you see the woman straddling Nostradamus and climaxing. These weren't in the episode.

I saw the clips before I saw the episode and thought the one with Mary was a dream sequence. Then I read that it was customary for people to watch the consummation.

Re: Reign - The CW

Francis' admitting to Mary his affair with Lola was rather anticlimactic, and so was Mary's reaction.

Oh, by the way, I had a one-night stand with your best friend Lola.

Really? Okay, I forgive you.


Mary was more concerned with hiding the fact from her husband that she already knew.

On a side note, I'm curious about the beast that Bash would like to go after next week.

I am still making the assumption that it's a human being.

I think Bash's strategy was right, and Rowan's decision to drug him was the wrong move. Not just because it ended up with her getting taken by the "creature," but because Bash's strategy, if successful, could have ended the threat of the "creature" altogether.

Given his recent behaviors, I suspect that it's Henri who attempted to kill Bash a few weeks ago, and not Francis or Catherine.

I completely forgot that Greer was still on the show.

I love this series' completely ahistorical and unrealistic expectations about love in the 16th-century. Greer's arranged marriage rings true. Lola's decision to wait for love does not.

So, what are the odds that next week Bash and Francis will rescue Rowan from her sacrifice in just the nick of time?

Re: Reign - The CW

Has Henry gone completely mad?! It appeared as if he was ready to strike Bash, his own son, with a sword (and he did pour hot candle wax into the ear of one of his noblemen). And that peasant girl Penelope, who was supposed to be queen for a day, was quite devious for betraying Catherine.

Alas, brotherly love was not lost after all when Bash saved Henry after the latter had fallen into an icy lake, searching for this monster that was believed to be nothing more than an ordinary human being. Yet this monster remains to us a mystery.

Greer lost her chance of marrying a handsome nobleman when she was caught lip locked with her boyfriend, but the Lord Castleroy, who's always fancied her, proposed and saved her from certain disgrace. And for their sake, I how Mary finds Lola a husband.

Re: Reign - The CW

Okay, because it's the 15th century and we are not completely sure that magic doesn't exist because Nostradamus seems to be a fully fucking functional wizard, I'm going to say something silly that doesn't exist... WITCHCRAFT!!!!

Penny slept with the baker to get the bean, so if she's playing a long game, this toxic little ginger might have hexed king Henry weeks ago in preperation for her arrival as the bean queen.



If you're trying to place the actress, she was one of the stroppy twins in the English version of Skins.

Re: Reign - The CW

Ah, the madness of King Henri.

It's clear, from the way Catherine keeps bringing up headaches, that Henri has some sort of brain tumor. (Which isn't what kills him, by the way. He takes a lance in the face during a joust.) Either that, or a Ceti Eel crawling around.

I feel bad for Bash and, surprisingly, Kenna. I agreed with Bash's assessment of Kenna -- not someone I much like -- and that's not a "solution" that anyone wanted. The best thing for them is to not consummate the marriage, because then, probably once Henri comes down out of his madness, they could get an annulment for non-consummation.

Henri's new "queen" is cute. And Olivia's interest in Nostradamus had me going, "Wha?"

Re: Reign - The CW

Wait? That's one of the more accurate predictions of Nostradamus that almost got him killed, isn't it?

I wonder what sort of lead in we'll get to that?

Noz foresees the death of the king.

Writes it down.

Gets it published and...

This version of Nostradamus that we are experiencing here, doesn't really seem like he already has a book deal.

Wouldn't that be very interesting to see take birth?

A sleazy 15th century agent/publicist trying to pull Nostradamus as a client, and then take him on booktour and...

It is indeed.

Re: Reign - The CW

It looks like Lola has found herself a husband who will marry her although he knows her secret.

Francis and Mary discover the secret clause in their marriage contract that could affect Scotland's future. Catherine finds out Mary's plan and has Lord MacKenzie and his men murdered before they can carry out their mission. But nice counter move when Mary threatens to expose Henry's rather unstable state of mind, which could spell trouble for France.

Re: Reign - The CW

Mary's brother James came to France to persuade Mary to go back to Scotland, but Francis learned there would be an attempt on Mary's life. So why didn't he just tell her?

Finally, Catherine succeeded in ousting Penelope out of Henry's bedroom. Who's haunting the King of France?
