Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the March 6 episode of Reign, stop reading now!
Mary is married! Clarissa is alive! Bash is gone! Was this just the best hour Reign has ever had? I’m thinking so! So unless someone has a royal trumpet to announce my entrance — which would be amazing — let’s dig in!
The episode started with Queen Catherine’s head literally on the chopping block. But don’t worry, she was only rehearsing her execution, as one does. In order for the Queen to go out in style, she had to plan the event as if it were as big as a royal wedding (foreshadowing, I know). She wanted 50 musicians and ships made of silver and gold in order to symbolize her journey to heaven, even though Henry informed her that was not where she was headed. But that’s not important right now, because those royal trumpets are blowing. Everyone say hello (or perhaps curtsy) to Marie de Guise, Mary’s mother!
Mommy dearest was quick to inform Mary of her disappointment in the fact that she sent her daughter to marry a King and found her engaged to a bastard. Let’s just say she wasn’t one to believe in Nostradamus’ prophecy. She told Mary that Scotland was in danger of falling to Protestantism, and that they needed Catholic France. In a panic, Mary took that as a sign that she and Bash had to elope now, before her mother could ruin things. Bash was off to find a priest and she would meet him at the church. I’m not sure how I feel about his line, “Don’t plan on sleeping this night, wife.” It was cute, right? Or kind of uncomfortable? Maybe it’s just me, but their relationship has slowly been growing on me, and I like them, but the idea of them sleeping together feels weird. But that’s neither here nor there. (How royal and British do I sound?)
