“Reign” has SO much drama going on. Between an unexpected pregnancy, an accidental killing and a dangerous creature roaming the woods, fans of the CW series are desperate to find out what happens next. And fortunately we have the synopsis of episode 15 to hold viewers over.
The French court will be throwing another extravagant party in “The Darkness.” But this time the party isn’t to celebrate a marriage. Instead the occasion, called “First Light,” is an event where the women of the castle “mingle with potential suitors.”
Since Mary’s ladies in waiting aren’t betrothed to anyone, this would seem like the ideal situation for them. But as “Reign” fans know, that’s not the case. Greer is in the middle of a secret romance with Leith, one of the kitchen help; Kenna is bent on continuing to hook up with King Henry; and Lola … well, Lola is carrying Francis’ illegitimate child.
As we learned in episode 14, Mary was devastated by the news of her friend’s betrayal. And even though Lola had excuses for her hookup with Francis, Mary argued that she should have known better.
“You were my friend, not to mention my Lady,” Mary scolded Lola. “And you knew that I loved him still.”
Mary agreed to keep Lola’s pregnancy a secret from Francis, but the thought of Lola potentially becoming Francis’ mistress is still front and center for the newlywed. And that storyline won’t fade. According to the synopsis, Lola is “reluctant to participate” in the First Light, and Mary is definitely distressed over the situation.
Meanwhile, Kenna will begin to doubt her relationship with King Henry when he becomes “increasingly erratic” and involved in another “violent incident.” Despite Henry promising a weekly suitor for Kenna, Mary’s lady in waiting will begin to fear for her safety. And that fear spikes so high that she even turns to Queen Catherine to confide.
As for Bash? Although he had plans to leave for Spain, the promo video for “The Darkness” shows that his plans will change when Rowan’s family gets “chosen.” Never one to shy away from danger, Bash will go into the woods to experience the terror, and “vows to uncover the truth behind the Darkness.”
Episode 15 of "Reign" will air on The CW next Thursday at 9 p.m. EDT. What do you think will happen? Check out the photos below and tweet your thoughts to @AmandaTVScoop.
