What does Kenna take as his widow?

Re: Reign - The CW

Henri historically died in a joust that went wrong, and the promo pics from the finale show him all dressed up in armor at what looks like a Tournament.

Odds are they'll kill him off in the finale and have the rest of the series be about Francis' juggling his new Kingship of France with his marriage to Mary.

Francis himself isn't long for the world, but M.A.S.H. managed to get seasons and seasons out of a war that didn't last very long either.

I agree; though Francis only ruled a year and a half, they could get two, possibly three, season out of that. The political machinations between Catherine and the Duc de Guise, the coup attempt by a group of Protestants, the English siege of Edinburgh, and the establishment of Protestantism as Scotland's official religion -- there's story fodder there.

I have a hard time seeing the series shift gears entirely when Mary returns to Scotland after Francis' death. It would be interesting, the Catholic Mary having to deal with John Knox and a Protestant Scotland, yes, but very different. (Though, a reformatted series set in Scotland would have the "Who is Mary going to love?" dynamic of a CW series.)

Next season is going to be about Henri's children with Mary coming back in time to save their father from an early death so that they will be born at all.

Susan Pevensie's husband isn't a real prince! And now he's gone, too.

Re: Reign - The CW

Interesting finale ... Henry is dead, killed in a joust by an incognito Francis. Lola goes into labor, and Mary tells Francis he's the daddy. The Darkness was a deranged man, not a beast.

It was funny watching the ending. Mary goes, "Francis, you must go to Lola. She's giving birth to your child!" Then a couple minutes later, "Francis, don't go. There's going to be a plague!"

I never thought I'd get hooked on this show.

I went into last night's episode thinking that Bash would die in his search for the Darkness. So when he survived -- and then he and Kenna said that they loved each other -- I didn't know quite what to think. Especially considering that Bash and Kenna didn't like each other two months ago and now they're besotted with each other.

Mary has become one of the least sympathetic characters on the series, and that scene was her unsympathetic self in a nutshell.

I'm curious if Anna Poppelwell was on the fence about returning for a second season, because the way the episode ends Lola's fate could go either way.

Me, neither. I liked the series a lot more in the Back Nine, once they nuked the Mary/Francis/Bash love triangle from orbit and went more for the political machinations. It was like a PG-13 Tudors.

Re: Reign - The CW

Is Frances going to be undone by Nostradamus' prophecies of this exact thing happening published years earlier?
