Well written reply, almost to the point that it reads like pre-production synopsis. Are you hiding something? Lol, just kidding! I personally along with a few other viewers, are just kinda sick of the humiliation and blaming of Francis. Mary seems to have suddenly abandoned all feelings for Francis. Without any concerns about how it appears to any of the people that they govern ,she has very publicly removed Francis from their marital home, and is now openly almost flaunting her relationship with Conde. Similar to last season, as you referenced when she exiled Francis, just because of some vision and for love of Bash. .Neither of these choices did anything to help her country . Both of them were more just about her feelings. We also tend to forget that not only are Conde and his brother a big part of what has been creating such angst for the royal court, and Mary, but had Mary not ordered the death of one of Narcisse family, he would probably had not sought so much vengeance and blackmailing towards Francis.
Carissa, you have always reminded me over the past year, that I am easily swayed by previews and spoilers, so while I see next week's previews with disgust ,I have come up with an optimistic out come. It appears that Mary is being threaten by some political uprising, possibly due to rumors about her and Conde, so what if the union she's referring to has nothing to do with her romantic relationship with Conde, but some kind of political union between his family and country and France? Clever word play? Hard to get past Mary telling Francis she can't be his wife. It is clear that Catherine, Bash and Francis are doubtful of Conde and his family motives, as they should be but I am worried for the amount of damage they will cause for Mary before she realizes their dark side. Similar to what Narcisse did to Francis.
Great review Carissa, and I couldn't agree with you more. I believe the writers have started this stupid triangle SL and now don't know what to do with it. If it was solely about the intimacy issue between Mary and Francis, I would understand the rape issue but the constant hovering around Conde and the sense of entitlement that Mary shows is growing old. The promo for next week, looks even worse. Mary mournfully telling Conde that Francis has forbidden their union? What is that? They have totally wasted and nearly destroyed a great partnership that was one of the best parts of this series. I am almost to the point that I wish they would start pushing the death of Francis just so I don't have to suffer through the weekly blaming of Francis for everything wrong and his constant humiliation. Was nice to see Greer, although I don't think she's a prostitute, but more of a pimp. Also excited by the return of the Catherine we grew to love. Don't think Lola and Francis will be anything more than great friends and co-parents.
