To The Death


Mary Must Decide if She Should save Elizabeth
Mary, in order to protect Elizabeth, unknowingly puts Gideon’s life in danger. To save him, Mary turns to another Englishman for help – Robert Dudley. Meanwhile, Bash is determined to track down the men behind the threats to Catherine.


Queen Elizabeth: No Joseph Tudor will be blamed for this. The traitor has been brought home to England where I have ordered him to be drawn and quartered. That will serve as an example to anyone who dare threaten my reign.

Queen Elizabeth: As for Mary Stuat. I am resending my offer. I shall never name an heir unless it is my own child. To name a successor is to place a target on ones self. And so long as I live I shall be the queen of England. And when I am dead whoever has the most right shall successed me.

Queen Catherine: If you think you are not going to talk, you are mistaken

Lady Greer: I was willing to give up so much for you. But now I want you out of my life. Forever.

Robert Dudley: I thought he was a free man?
Queen Elizabeth: He somehow infuriated the pope. I guess he can’t charm everyone.
Robert Dudley: He’s your ambassador Elizabeth. You’re just going to let him die?
Queen Elizabeth: I sent him to France to woo Mary. He’s more male prostitute than a master of diplomacy

Queen Catherine: From Where I sit- which is on the French throne as it’s regent I see the Vatican pushing around it’s female monarchs and i don’t appreciate it one bit! U can go now

Queen Catherine: We are no longer lovers Christopher, just two ppl who keep each other’s secrets
