The castle is bustling as King Henry makes his way home from Paris on tonight's episode of 'Reign.'
“I don’t understand why he changed so quickly…” says Lola of the formerly Perfect Portuguese Prince Tomás, and I’m with her. I’m not going to sit here and pretend that I didn’t suspect Mary’s new fiancé and Scotland’s savoir of having a dark side, but jeez Louise 'Reign', he got pretty evil pretty fast.
France is a little unclear that the purpose of an alliance is to strengthen the countries involved and not just to have a bunch of pretty Scottish teens around sass up royal parties. At least it seems that way for the top half of tonight’s episode of 'Reign.' Queen Mary’s uncle arrives with the news that the English are amassing on the Scottish border, clearly up to no good. So of course a very determined Mary is all “Hey France! Can you help a country out?” but King Henry is all like, “Huh? What? I gotta go over here now.” (Not direct quotes)
There are two ghosts in Reign’s second episode, titled 'Snakes in the Garden.' One is the mysterious masked woman who lurks in the walls. The other is Colin, presumed beheaded. He’s alive because the red X that should have marked his dungeon was painted on the wrong door. And with the lady ghost’s help, ghost Colin has escaped! (Note: Neither of these characters are actually ghosts.)
There are good historical dramas, bad historical dramas, and then there is ‘Reign,' a CW-tastic historical drama packed with pretty people, Forever 21 meets ren-faire clothing, and glorious, glorious, teen angst.
