"Surrender now, and Mary will live."
Louis Condé


Mary's Loyalties are Tested When She Makes a Heart-Wrenching Discovery
As troops are about to descend on the castle, Mary and Francis must put aside their differences to determine the extent of Condé’s betrayal. Mary also learns of a bittersweet revelation that tears her apart and makes her question everything. Meanwhile, Catherine decides to teach Narcisse a lesson to prove he can never cross her again and Bash decides to bring Delphine to the castle.


Queen Mary: What would Condé gain?
King Francis: My throne!

King Francis: Save your apologies. Your words have no meaning to me.

Louis Condé: Deliver a message to King Francis, tell him Prince Condé is coming.

Lady Kenna: Bash! If you could excuse your woodsman, we have business to discuss. -Oh good Lord, you're a grown woman! Oh... You must be Bash’s mysterious friend who lives in the forest.

Lady Kenna: -Former, mercenary. He could be becoming Francis's right-hand man. -No offence.
Sebastian: None taken.

Sebastian: I’ll talk to Francis. Good luck to you.
Lady Kenna: You too.

Queen Catherine: Well I may be cooped up in a castle, never forget. My reach is far.

Queen Catherine: I knew it was only a matter of time before Condé showed his true colours. I should have poisoned him when I had the chance!

Queen Catherine: I won’t be needing a teary farewell, as I’m staying in the castle. Your younger sister and brothers are safely abroad.

King Francis: A fight is upon us, and a King must stand his ground.

Queen Catherine: I ease my fears because they are mine! Because they matter. I’m a woman. I won’t accept what that means anymore! I won’t bow to a lover. I was forced to do that once for a king. but you, are most certainly not a King.

King Francis: War is nearly upon us, I will pray for your safety.

Queen Mary: I wish there was a way to end this without bloodshed.
Queen Catherine: Who’s blood concerns you more. Your husband's, or your lovers.

Louis Condé: Surrender France... Or we’ll attack at dawn.

Sister Delphine: Don’t worry, I think you’ll be pleased.
Servant: Is this because we’re all gonna die?
