Catherine de Medici is a terrible enemy to have and she has Queen Mary in her sights. Is there a chance she's playing double agent and she's come to Elizabeth to help Mary and Francis behind their backs in order to get back into the court's good graces?
Queen Elizabeth will feature prominently in the plot of Reign Season 3 as Mary and Francis prepare for war with England. With Catherine de Medici on her side, she might just best the reigning king and queen of France.
If there's one thing Reign Season 3 needs, it's more Bash. Preferably shirtless and NOT feeling the flames of a burning heretic witch. Let's keep Bash a little closer to home this season, okay writers?
A mysterious new man, Martin de Lambert, comes to court on Reign Season 3 Episode 1. He's a pirate capable of going toe-to-toe with the monarchs AND he's good at getting women into bed. (Who isn't on this show?)
Francis: I don't know what role he'll have at court, but I want to be a part of my son's life. Of this child's life. But we will have others. Mary, my father's indiscretions were blatant, but out of respect for his wife he gave Bash no title or standing. It hurt him and it hurt me to see it. Mary: The eyes of the world are watching to see if we will, if I can bear an heir, not just for France, for Scotland and England as well. I know this has nothing to do with the role you decide to have in your son's life. Francis: Well perhaps it should. Mary: Those who are close to us, even here at court, will know the truth. Mother has guessed it already. Spend time with your son, absolutely... Francis: But don't claim him. Officially you mean. Mary: Yes.
