“Left Behind” is tonight’s episode of “Reign.” To refresh your memory on what happened last time, click here. The midseason finale of “Reign” airs next Thursday night at 8 on the CW. Here’s the latest gossip at the castle:
Count Vincent stops by the castle for a friendly visit, and by friendly visit he means take over the castle as revenge for the French holding his son hostage and contributing to his death. The count is not a very happy man, and he demands satisfaction. Honestly, it doesn’t seem like he has any idea what he wants when he takes over the castle. Sure, revenge is the goal, but he doesn’t know how to get it. Also, Count Vincent is plain creepy.
Ah, young love
Greer and her chef boyfriend (does he have a name) spend time being adorable together. He attempts to teach her how to cook. What Greer learns is that she is better at hitting a guy on the head with a frying better than at actually cooking. Mary and Francis, on the other hand, are heating back up. Even though Francis slept with Olivia, he called out Mary’s name during sex. Ouch. In the end, Mary and Francis end up kissing and most likely having sex. He asks when he should stop, and Mary says never. The obvious answer is sex, isn’t it?
Another Reason to Hate Olivia
This episode shows another way Olivia can earn our hatred. She has a very crucial part in the escape plan. All she has to do is stand in a creepy, dark hallway and open the door with Francis and Mary knock. Of course, she leaves before Mary knocks, thus leaving Mary and her ladies stranded in the castle. The upside? Olivia doesn’t understand the tunnels, and so she gets lost and runs into Clarissa. Karma’s a bitch.
A Mother’s Love
This is a great episode for the moms. Queen Catherine shows how far she will go for Francis, and she even tells a story about how she became who she is. It is a great character moment for her. Bash’s mom, Diane, fills Bash in on her plans for him. She wants him to become legitimized, and therefore become the heir to the throne. Diane goes so far as to orchestrate Count Vincent’s attack. Bash, being the smart guy that he is, wants no part of this.
Lola: “Please, when has the French court not been full of evil men and women? Since we got here we have been lied to by people who smile and say pretty things as they stab us in the back.”
Greer: “All I’ve been raised to do is dress nicely and smile at men.”
Queen Catherine: “The first lesson I learned is to never wait for a man’s rescue. History is written by the survivors, and I am surely that.”
