Ever since poor Colin's death was blamed on pagans in Reign's second episode, we've all be waiting with bated breath for the show to explain what the heck that was all about. Happily, next episode throats are cut, people are strung upside down in the woods, and Bash learns that these pagans are all around.

In Mary news, Francis's old girlfriend is back in town. And she wants to stay, if not as his wife as his mistress! Maybe this will finally activate the Bash-Mary-Francis love triangle action 'Reign' promised us.

And as always, Nostradamus is a whispering downer.
