'Reign' 1x13 'The Consummation' Recap: The tricky thing about fate

“The Consummation” is tonight’s episode of “Reign.” To refresh your memory on what happened last time, click here. “Reign” airs Thursday nights at 8 on the CW. Here’s the latest gossip at the castle:

Everything has Changed

He has a new vision (after purposely hanging himself and almost dying) that Mary and Francis will live long and happy lives. What caused the change? Clarissa, Catherine’s true first born, is dead. He runs off to tell Catherine this immediately, and she begins to attempt to save herself and Francis. It does seem like she truly wants Francis to be happy, and promises to not harm Mary anymore.

Mother in Court

Mary’s mom Marie comes to visit, and she is not happy about how things are progressing. She wanted Mary to wed a king and be secure, not marry a bastard that could easily be dethroned. If you thought Catherine was devious, Marie quickly makes a fight for the title of sneakiest son of a gun. First, she bribes servants to clue her in on the fact that Mary and Bash are eloping, so she can tell Francis. Then Marie deceives everyone by having a messenger come in and say that England’s queen is dead, and this forces Henry to force Mary to marry one of his sons tonight. Thankfully Mary is not impressed by this, and tells her mother to leave court at once.

Torn Between Two Lovers

Mary and Bash are set to elope at a church. When she arrives, she sees Francis and Bash fighting. It is there that she learns of the change in fate. What’s a girl to do when there are two devastatingly handsome men who want to marry her? To make matters worse, she loves them both. Surprisingly, Catherine helps Mary to discover that she loves Francis more than Bash. There was not any evil plotting involved to help Mary come to this conclusion. For once, Catherine does the right thing.

Clarissa Lives

Be honest, we all saw this coming. There was no way the big “bad” of the show could be killed that easily. After learning this, Nostradamus’ vision changes. This time, instead of seeing Mary and Francis years into their marriage, he sees them a year later. Mary is urging Francis to fight it, and then Francis starts bleeding from the ear and dies. You know, things like this happen. Nostradamus should probably learn that he should keep his visions to himself, especially since they change so easily.

Favorite Quotations

Catherine: “Has Scotland noticed that its king has rather overexposed breasts?”

Mary: “It’s odd isn’t it, that your mother was the one to show me what was in my heart?”

Marie: “Everyone needs a little push on occasion, even queens even France. All happiness comes with a price. You paid yours with another’s broken heart.”

Leave me your thoughts in a comment below. I’m trying to block out the awkwardness that is having a bunch of people (including your ex-fiancé) watch you have sex. Also, I began to like Kenna again when she told off Lola. Make sure you hit subscribe.
