    I am glad Mary's ladies had something to do in this EP. LOL. I want to see the Pagan stuff explored more.

    Sure. :)

    All I saw was shadows and then blood on the tent. I think Bash knows more than he is letting on and Mary wants to understand it more.

    Remember Hern the Hunter form Robin of Sherwood?

    That, but with more bestiality.

    If the pagans were nice, why spend all the time hunting them to extinction?

    It hardly makes sense?

    I know this show is trying to me historically accurate...that is a lie but if they can mix in Robin Hood & Joan Of Arc I would be happy. LOL!!!

    Very interesting turn of events. Catherine threatened to expose Bash when she discovered the baby with the pagan mark, but Bash and Mary found out about Catherine's sordid past affair with Richard, Henry's old friend, who fathered a child with Catherine, the union of which resulted in Clarissa, the outcast and castle "ghost" whom Nostradamus looked after. And when Catherine thought she had one more ace up her sleeve by attempting to expose Bash's pagan background, Henry himself took matters into his own hands by killing her guard and witness.

    Vengeful, Catherine tried to simultaneously commit suicide and murder Mary in the bathtub by poisoning her, but even that failed when Clarissa intervened to save both women from certain deaths.

    A week ago I was going to give up on this show.

    And this week it found its inner Tudors -- and positively reveled in it. Without the sex, though.

    The whole "pagans" thing makes absolutely no sense to me, though. I'm not sure who they're supposed to be. We're two centuries too late for the Cathars, and if it's religious conflict Reign wanted, the French Protestants are more than sufficient.

    Personally I really enjoy this show for the political scheming and manuvering in it.

    Very good and interesting EP. Nice knowing more about Clarissa. I loved how Kenna was talking about how Catherine tried to kill her and Henry was like, No one cares! :rommie: Poor Kenna.

    that was a really great end to Thursday's episode. i figured it would be awhile before Cathrine herself decided to kill Mary.

    The only thing that could have made that attempted murder any more exciting is if Catherine had said something like "I would have killed you weeks ago if I'd known you had perfect breasts" as she poured in the poison to Mary's bath.

    This is the only historical drama/period piece that I ever watch on television, and maybe the show is meant to be historically inaccurate.

    Hmm, what would be an interesting concept for a historical soap opera is to feature characters like Napoleon, Woodrow Wilson, Margaret Thatcher, and Nikita Khrushchev quarreling amongst themselves.

    I don't remember. Wasn't there a Nicodemus Legend series back in the '90s?

    So is Clarissa really dead? I certainly hope so. She was no good anyway, that hideous bitch that lurked in the shadows. And to think she would have murdered little Charlie.

    Funniest line: "Marry me, Mary of Scotland, and make me the luckiest bastard in the world." :lol:

    It was sad how they cut the super cool monologue from the beginning.

    Was this an oddity or the new normal?

    "No, Susan Pevensie! No!" I shouted at the television screen last night.

    Other than that, I thought it was a pretty good hour of television.
