'Reign': The highs and lows of season 1

Oh Reign, how I love thee. I mean, how could I not when it has been a season full of ridiculous sexcapades, a crazy (and often pantsless) king, a conniving queen, and a beautifully complicated teenage love story? I simply cannot get enough.

But now that the season has come to an end with a life-threatening birth, and an even more life-threatening plague, it’s time we look back on what worked for the show’s freshman season and what could use a bit of tweaking moving forward.

First things first, bring Julien back! And furthermore … READ FULL STORY

'Reign' recap: Long may he rest

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season finale of Reign, stop reading now!

I already miss Henry. Mary and Francis are so complicated my head hurts. Plagues suck. And I still miss Julien. Shall we? READ FULL STORY

'Reign' recap: In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Racquetball Ghost

So King Henry pulled a tooth from his fist. He pulled an actual human tooth out of his fist like it was no big deal. Don’t get me wrong, I love these moments when Henry surprises me, but I think I’m going to have to choose the time he humped out of a window over watching him pull a tooth from his fist. Also, how does a tooth get lodged in your fist? Spoiler: I haven’t been in many fist fights guys, but let’s just say my desire to punch people just went way down. Let’s get into this before I start google tooths in fists or something weird.

This episode picked up months after Francis left for battle. Upon his return with Mary’s uncle, the Duke of Guise, Francis ran straight to his beloved bride, and the two had a ridiculously adorable welcome home moment. Too bad it was interrupted by crazy King Henry’s announcement that the Queen of England had fallen, and now it was up to Mary to stake her claim.


'Reign' recap: Bromance on the battlefield, romance at the castle

Can we talk about Julien for a moment? He’s like this show’s little Henry Cavill, and I’m so in love with him. Yes, he’s super hot — hence the Cavill comparison — but he’s also so sweet and sincere. Now that Henry’s gone crazy, I think Julien would have to be the Reign man I’d want to marry, followed closely by Leith, obviously. But enough about me, let’s talk about royal stuff! READ FULL STORY

'Reign' recap: Brrr, it's cold in here

Another week of Reign, another week that I’m incredibly grateful that I’m a twenty-something who lives in 2014 and doesn’t have to worry about an entire country when picking out a male suitor. And notice I said “suitor” and not “husband,” because like I said, it’s 2014 people, and I love it! You know what else I love? Watching a television show about 15 year olds who have to marry each other and balance falling in love with having children, civic duty, protecting a nation and so much more. So before I go on another rant of sorts, let’s talk about what just happened! READ FULL STORY

'Reign' recap: For king or country

All I can say is that I’m very happy that I live in the 21st Century, and that my future husband will likely not own a castle with some sort of lock tower. And let’s be honest: Even if he did, he’d never have the power to lock me away in it (because, you know, equality and stuff).

That being said, I’m not totally mad at Francis right now. Is he looking out for France? Of course. Is he looking out for Mary? Yes. Is he still a teenager with a ridiculous amount of responsibility? Always. Let’s dig in!


'Reign' react: For the love of Scotland

Dearest Reign devotees, your usual recapper Samantha Highfill is on a plane right now so I’m filling in to fill you in on how cute Lord Julien looks tonight (very cute) and what kind of sass Queen Catherine has to give us (a lot). So let’s get started! READ FULL STORY

'Reign' react: Oh, Henry

So Henry is absolutely batshit crazy, and I love it. Let me give you some perspective: Humping a woman out of a window was something a sane person would do compared to the things he’s pulling now. Declaring a servant his new queen? Threatening his own sons? And, most importantly, wielding a sword while attending a wedding completely barefoot? Yep, he’s done them all. At this point, I think Henry’s a bigger monster than The Darkness, but he’s also a much more attractive one, and quite frankly, watching him lose his marbles is nothing if not incredibly entertaining. Let’s do this, shall we?


'Reign' react: How much is that candle in the window?

Welcome back to France, where being a royal is as difficult as it is sexy, and there are two ways to die: Either The Darkness gets you, or Henry kills you after (or during) sex. I don’t know about you all, but if I had to go, I would choose option B every time (and maybe twice). Then again, The Darkness only kills those who see it, so perhaps I would just shut my eyes and go hang out with Leith. But enough about me, let’s get down to business! READ FULL STORY

'Reign' react: Thrust into darkness

You guys, the King just humped a woman out of a window! He literally humped someone to their death. That just happened, and I don’t know how to feel about it. Honestly, that was the second greatest hump I’ve ever seen, behind this one. Now, let me attempt to write this react through my tears of laughter. READ FULL STORY
