Question: What will Mary and Francis’ reunion be like on Reign after the way he left? — Bree
Ausiello: As you can imagine, Bree, “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe Francis and Mary’s relationship in Season 2. “There is a connection between Francis and Lola, and he has to have a civil relationship with her, but he’s determined to show Mary that he cares about their relationship more than anything — and he does that through sex,” Toby Regbo says. “He just throws sex at his problems until they go away.”
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!
