Sins of the Past


"And no one hurts my family and lives to tell the tail. Whoever they are. They will pay the price, and thier family will weep tears stained with blood!"
Queen Catherine


Mary Must Resolve her Feelings for Condé
As Mary and Francis investigate who was behind the poisoning of King Henry, they unearth secrets of the past which force Mary to confront her feelings for Condé as she attempts to move forward. Catherine finds herself in the middle of a romantic triangle when the Duke of Guise (Gil Darnell) returns, which forces Narcisse to commit a hideous act out of desperation. Meanwhile, Greer finds herself in a situation she never fathomed in order to survive.


Lady Lola: Isn't this what husbands are for?
Lady Kenna: ...Servants.

Lady Kenna: So stange isn’t it. Both of us married and more alone than ever.

Queen Mary: You sound like Catherine.
Duke of Guise: Why she hasn’t assassinated them while here at court is a mystery to me!

Queen Catherine: So much for your investigatory skills!

Princess Claude: You're just angry with him because Diane was here.

Queen Catherine: No one hurts my family and lives to tell the tale. Whoever they are. They will pay the price, and thier family will weep tears stained with blood!

Queen Catherine: Look who survived the plague.

Queen Catherine: I heard you were back to reclaim your old post. Good luck with that.

Queen Catherine: I do as I please in my own home.

Duke of Guise: And I’m here to court you.
Queen Catherine: You say that like I’ve won a prize!

Queen Catherine: The fact that you heard about this from your still active network of spies, does not mean it’s open for discussion.

Louis Condé: Or are we chess peices that no longer need to be moved?!

Lady Lola: Greer, have you thought of returning to Scotland?
Greer Castleroy: No!

Greer Castleroy: Would you excude me, I have to speak with the whore next door.

King Antoine: We must not be stained by the crimes of the dead, not when life and peace are so fragile. I forgive you, for the sake of your soul and peace between our two nations and my brother will do the same.
King Francis: Let it be so. May our feuds die with our fathers.

(to Louis Condé)
Queen Mary: You will be the death of me. And I of you.
