A new promotional teaser has been released for Reign season 2, episode 3 “Coronation” has been released and show’s Mary and Francis officially taking the throne of France.
After a few episodes of uncertainty, it would seem that Mary and Francis have finally come to a resolution to stand by one another, no matter what. This new clip teases just that, plus some conflict with the nobles:
The teaser also includes flashbacks to when Mary and Francis were children and would run around the castle playing and jumping on beds. What a simpler time to be a royal, am I right? Now that the two are King and Queen of France, things are about to get a little bit harder.
However, the official synopsis paints a very different picture, and highlights the struggles that Mary and Francis face as the rulers of a country that has been devastated by the plague:
“MARY OVERSTEPS HER BOUNDS – With France in a state of famine, as well as religious and political unrest, Mary (Adelaide Kane) looks for a way to feed the people, risking the wrath of a vengeful Lord Narcisse (guest star Craig Parker). Francis (Toby Regbo) is preoccupied by the harrowing suspicion that his dead father’s spirit can possess the living and is haunting Francis as revenge for his murder. As Catherine (Megan Follows) makes excessive and lavish preparations for a coronation ceremony to give the impression of stability to the realm, Bash (Torrance Coombs) confronts the reality of a country plagued by fear, bankruptcy, and murder.”
Reign season 2, episode 3 “Coronation” airs Thursday, October 16 at 8PM on The CW.
Do you think Francis and Mary will be able to manage as the new Queen and King of France?
