When to Watch: Thursday, Oct. 2 at 9 p.m.
What to Expect: The Plague is here will have a major impact on all of the ladies in season two. Kenna is “going to be much more ambitious after the plague,” with her ambition “testing” her relationship with husband Bash, showrunner Laurie McCarthy previewed, adding that Greer’s love triangle will take a “tragic” turn in the premiere. As for Lola, the French Court will learn she’s the mother of Francis’ child, which will “elevate her status” and bring “surprising new love interests.” And how’s this for a juicy tease? “We’ll see an open marriage during the course of the season and I don’t want to say who,” McCarthy previews. Fingers crossed it’s not Francis and Mary!

TV Line: Frary’s ‘Awkward’ Future, Lola’s Baby, Plague-Related Deaths and More on Season Two

Kane said Mary and Francis’ marriage is “going well so far,” though McCarthy warned Frary fans that they should be “a little nervous” about the couple’s future in Season 2. Francis and Mary will face countless obstacles, both “political” and sometimes “horrific.”
