'Reign' Recap: Long Kill The King

Reign benefits and suffers from a selective memory. It chooses what it likes about history and what it doesn't. It takes creative liberties to a new threshold, creating an unpredictable atmosphere. Who would have guessed Bash would have been named 'king-to-be' for a short while? Of course, the problem with its selective memory is that selective memory includes storylines.
