Recap

-Olivia-- a young noblewoman who used to live in French court--is returning, when her carriage is set upon by pagans in the woods.

-Her driver and lady-in-waiting are slaughtered, but she makes it to her destination--and to Francis.

-Olivia was Francis's first love, and first lover. Gossip about their coupling led to her being considered unmarriageable by others.

-Francis resists Olivia's advances, but Mary is heartbroken to hear that Olivia tried to seduce him.

-Francis agrees that Olivia may stay in French court for the time being.

-Mary and Francis argue about Olivia's role in the court, and about the future of their relationship.

-Angered, Mary gets drunk with Bash, and kisses him. He kisses her back. Francis watches from afar.

-Mary is ashamed, Francis is angered--and it turns out that Olivia has been working under orders from Queen Catherine this whole time.

-Catherine aims for Olivia to break Francis and Mary up-- after which, she will replace Mary as the future queen of France.

-Catherine catches Aylee stealing a ring from Mary, and blackmails her into bringing her the letters that Mary posts to her mother back in Scotland.

-But Aylee has revealed the blackmail to Mary, who devises a scheme.

-Bash is confronted by a pagan from the forest, who tells him that he has run afoul of the forest people by interfering with their rituals, and thus must select a person to be sacrificed to make amends.
