When we last left off with our favorite royals, Mary had taken Nostradamus’ prediction to heart after she’d witnessed the death of one of her best friends on Reign. Knowing that Francis would never understand, Mary chose to flee the castle and rode off with Bash while the prince shouted for her not to go.
The freshman series will return on Jan. 23 with a new episode, “For King and Country.” The CW recently released the official episode description as well as the first photos from the episode that will pick up with Mary and Bash’s time away from the castle. But it won’t be long until they are forced to return and we expect they will not be welcomed with open arms by anyone.
Check out the full description from the network below as well as the photos and then hit the comments and share your thoughts and theories with us. Are you looking forward to the episode?
“CATHERINE CONSPIRES TO HAVE MARY ELIMINATED — When Mary (Adelaide Kane) and Bash (Torrance Coombs) are captured and forced to return to the castle, they discover Catherine (Megan Follows) waiting and even more determined to keep Mary and Francis apart. Francis learns of the prophecy, but his determination to wed Mary changes everything: in love in politics, tearing the bond of brothers apart, and hardening Catherine’s resolve to destroy Mary at any cost. Caitlin Stasey, Anna Popplewell and Celina Sinden also star. Helen Shaver directed the episode with the story by Alan McCullough and teleplay by Alan McCullough and Edgar Lyall.”
Reign returns Thursday, Jan. 23 at 9/8c on The CW.
