‘Reign’ (Season 1): The Aftermath

When last we saw Mary Stuart – aka Mary, Queen of Scots (series lead Adelaide Kane) – on the new CW period drama Reign, she was racing off on horseback, running away from her newly minted fiancé Francis (series regular Toby Regbo) alongside Francis’s bastard brother Bash (series regular Torrance Coombs).

Despite good intentions, Bash was merely acting as her guardian while running for his life – out of fear of what would happen to him given the fact that his mother, Diana (recurring guest star Anna Walton), was attempting to legitimize his birth and Mary was fleeing the castle in order to save Francis from Nostradamus’s (recurring guest star Rossif Sutherland) visions of his impending death should he and Mary actually wed. But their running away, of course, was deemed as lovers running away with each other, and given the time period, their actions are seen as nothing short of scandalous.
