Tempting Fate
"Francis will find a way, of killing you for this. You will be running for your life."
King Antoine


Francis Makes A Bold Proposition
When King Antoine threatens to tell Francis of Mary and Condé’s evolving relationship, Francis makes a shocking move. Bash and Kenna’s marriage is beyond repair after he learns of her scheming, while Leith discovers Greer’s unsavory new career path.


Lord Narcisse: What a king won’t stoop to grasp, his subject must offer.

King Antoine: Fetch me something. I don’t care what it is, but fetch me something far away.

Queen Mary: Oh. Those plans aren't ready for us to review just yet. And in any case i will be spending the night at the Abby of St. Seraphina. So your night is free. Completely free as I am sure you are aware.
King Francis: Are you certain Mary?
Queen Mary: ...I am.

Sebastian: Lets go to Paris.
Lady Kenna: Paris, why?
Sebastian: Because you love Paris.
Lady Kenna: But you hate it.
Sebastian: I will love it for you.

Louis Condé: You look happy.
Queen Mary: I am.

Greer: It’s a hard enough life without the look or your disapproval.

King Antoine: Francis will find a way, of killing you for this. You will be running for your life.

King Antoine: End it now, or I will end both of you.
