Last week’s Reign ended with Francis locking Mary in a tower at French court for her own protection. Of course, Mary was not pleased by what she perceived as Francis’ ultimate betrayal against her and her country, Scotland.
This week, it seems that Mary has been freed from the tower and has now bigger issues to worry about, including the arrival of her Uncle from Scotland and the King Henry’s sudden announcement that he plans to take the English throne for himself.
Watch the full preview here:
The synopsis for the “Toy Soldiers” promises intense decisions that Mary and Francis will need to make:
“When Mary’s uncle, the Duke of Guise (guest star Gil Darnell), arrives in France with devastating news about her mother, Mary (Adelaide Kane) and Francis (Toby Regbo) realize they are torn between putting their own countries first or saving their marriage. With the English throne in jeopardy, King Henry (Alan Van Sprang) hatches an elaborate plan that will end in disaster. Meanwhile, Bash (Torrance Coombs) and Kenna (Caitlin Stasey) solidify their marriage and begin to trust one another.”
