Hearts and Minds
- "I shouldn't have done that."
- —Queen Mary
Francis Reunites With An Ex, Causing Mary To Turn To Bash.
When Olivia (Yael Grobglas), who is an ex-lover of Francis', arrives at the castle, she brings the dangers of the woods with her. Mary seeks comfort in Bash. Bash is threatened by heretics for interfering with a sacred blood rite. Meanwhile, Aylee is forced to spy on Mary when Queen Catherine blackmails her.
Mary enjoys her romantic time with Francis until he ends up reuniting with Olivia D'Amencourt, his former lover who was attacked in the woods by pagans. Mary feels unthreatened by her arrival until she revealed her attempts to win Francis back, using all means necessary which included being his mistress.
Queen Mary: I always knew Francis had a past. Men are allowed to have them, whereas we have our reputation ruined. Hardly seems fair.
Queen Mary: That kiss, I shouldn’t have done that.
Sebastian: You're right. I should have. (kisses Mary back)
