One of the things that we love about Reign is how completely unpredictable each episode is. The show is constantly surprising us and we love that because we never quite know what to expect each week and that makes the show even more enjoyable.
Last week, we watched Francis push Mary away and turn to Olivia after he warned Bash and his fiancée to keep their distance. Next week, we know the castle will come under siege, which puts Francis in harm’s way and we can’t wait to see the episode unfold and find out who is behind the attack and if Mary and Catherine will really team up to save the prince.
The CW recently released the official description for the eighth episode of the season, “Fated.” It sounds pretty cut and dry: Mary will learn of the prophecy and it will change her relationship with Francis. But if this show has taught us anything over the past six episodes, it’s that nothing is ever as simple as it sounds. We’re guessing there’s going to be a twist and we can’t wait to find out what it is.
Check out the full episode description from the network as well as the photos below and then hit the comments and share your thoughts with us. Are you looking forward to the episode?
“MARY LEARNS THAT SOMEONE CLOSE TO HER WILL DIE — Nostradamus (Rossif Sutherland) tells Mary (Adelaide Kane) of his prophecy that one among them will die soon, which causes Mary to make a decision that will forever change her relationship with Francis (Toby Regbo). Clarissa (guest star Katie Boland) becomes bolder with her endeavors, while Kenna (Caitlin Stasey) informs Catherine (Megan Follows) of Diane’s (guest star Anna Walton) plan for Bash (Torrance Coombs), which ends up backfiring. Alan Van Sprang, Jenessa Grant, Anna Popplewell and Celina Sinden also star. Fred Gerber directed the episode written by Laurie McCarthy.”
Reign returns Thursday, Dec. 5 at 9/8c on The CW. “Fated” will air on Dec. 12.
