The End of Mourning
"Because I love you. And one of us should be happy."
Queen Mary


Francis and Mary Reunite as they learn of England's plan for retribution.
As the castle prepares for The Winter’s Ease Feast, King Antoine of Navarre reveals England's plan for revenge against France to Francis and Mary. Bash learns that an “undead” man has been seen in the village and his efforts to track the man down lead him to a mysterious woman in white. Meanwhile, Catherine finds out the cause of her hallucinations.


Queen Catherine: French refugees, please! More like he’s run through his wife’s money & she’s cut him off. Refuse him, & send him home!

Queen Catherine: Oh, that is so like him. A last gift so I never forget him or his whores.

Queen Catherine: Say that I died of consumptions while helping orphans!

Lady Kenna: I know I can be my own worst enemy, but I don’t want to be your worst enemy.

Lord Narcisse: Though Navarre may be a tiny nation, his foes don’t tend to survive.
King Francis: Another thing that makes you the man for the job.

Lady Kenna: You are terrible.
King Antoine: Tell me about your husband then.

Lady Lola: I can’t believe you're making these suggestions. The king discredited you, you don’t even have a house now.

(Lola finds Narcisse making out with Princess Claude)
Lady Lola: I just saw Narcisse with Claude.
Lady Kenna: In there!? Really...Oh I’m so sorry!

Lady Lola: I’m being courted by a handsome prince. Literally!

King Francis: How could you send me to another? How!?
Queen Mary: Because I love you. And one of us should be happy.

Historical Notes

  • King Antoine and Louis Condé had 11 other brothers and sisters. None of whom were named Marcus
  • The Italian Wars ended in 1559. Reign has just entered the year, 1559.
  • King Antoine does have a wife in 1559, Jeanne III, Queen of Navarre, and already have one child.
  • Historically many people were barred alive by mistake. That's where the phrase Save by the Bell came from. When people were not sure if someone was dead, they tied a bell to their finger. If the bell began ringing then the person would be dug up.
  • Seeing an open grave in this time period would not be uncommon. Grave robbery was a popular thing in the 16th century. Thieves would dig up anyone they thought might have been laid to rest with anything of worth. It declined in popularity but was around up until the early 1900s.
  • The Winter’s Ease Feast is not a real celebration. But they did look towards spring as new comings
