I wish Evil!Anne would've succeeded.

Maybe next time, Evil!Anne.
I'm rooting for you.


Okay, I'm not delusional enough to think that Mary & Bash would end up together. *history major here* I knew after Mary killed Clarissa, thereby fulfilling Nostradamus' prophecy of Mary causing the death of Evil!Anne's firsborn, that Francis would come rushing back just in time to switch grooms for the wedding. I just hate that Mary went from being a headstrong young woman to a silly, wishy-washy stereotypical teenage girl in just a couple episodes. "OH I LOVE YOU BASH I WANT TO MARRY YOU"…"OH IT'S ALWAYS BEEN YOU FRANCIS"…"I LOVE YOU BASH BUT I LOVE FRANCIS MORE". Yeah, cause Francis has always been so wonderful to you:

I hope your ~*~GREAT LOVE~*~ for Francis keeps you warm when Francis is out banging Natalia or Olivia or Susan Pevensie or a chamber maid or the village midwife.

So Reign has made its full transition into 90210 Goes to the 16th Century, just like I feared when the show was first announced. I'm kicking myself for getting my hopes up and thinking they would succeed not to PISS ME OFF by doing that.

Can we just wrap this up in an AU way and have Elizabeth I pay a visit to France and lop Mary's head off a few decades early? Girl obviously ain't using it!

At least her dress was gorgeous…?

I'm pretty sure Kenna is wearing the same dress my mom wore to prom in 1970.

At least Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is back (for now, I have no illusions that it'll get renewed for next season). It can be my #1 show now.

(I will keep watching Reign, I'm just Team Evil!Anne from now on. She's been the best part of the show for the last 2-3 eps anyway.)

I've never watched Reign and have no idea what is going on outside of a general history context...but WTF did she just throw in that water?

The dress is pretty but I'm pretty sure that's not period.... ;)

Now I'm uber confused.

She threw a poisoned tonic or something to that effect, the fumes made Mary (the chick in the tub) pass out. The show is going hard for that whole Renaissance-Italians-always-use-poison angle.

Yeah, none of the clothes on the show are period. The women wear lots of sleeveless dresses, one dresses in flowing hippie dresses, the jewelry is more Gatsby than Renaissance. There's been maybe one or 2 dresses that were historically accurate. And they play modern music in the background.

That wedding dress is so fucking gorgeous.

Right? I normally don't give a crap about wedding dresses but I gasped when I opened the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly and saw a full page photo of it. (It was designed by Hollywood Red Carpet designer Monique Lhullier fwiw.)

I'm still behind on this show. Can't believe she married rodent faced Francis. And it's such a shame that they made Mary so flippy-floppy and indecisive because I loved early Mary.

I'm starting to think the girl that plays Kenna is picking her dresses up from the wrong wardrobe department because her clothes always look so off. Mary's dress looks stunning though, probably the prettiest TV wedding dress I've seen.

Still can't believe anyone would pick Francis over Bash though. It does not compute. At least we still have OUaTiW and pretty Cyrus for now....

This show was so flawless until last night's ep! I figured she'd marry Francis (history & all) but was hoping maybe it'd just be a marriage for country and she'd carry on with Bash while Francis and his scrawny pre-pubescent body kept on banging all his mistresses.

...oh, and don't even get me started on how MARY tried to propose to BASH last episode and he was all "no I'm doing this right" and got down on one knee. He's saved her life 589 times while Francis has saved it once and spent the rest of the time stomping around throwing emo snit-fits and banging 3 different girls (we won't even mention how THEY FOUND HIM LIVING IN PARIS IN A BROTHEL). And she went from declaring her love for Bash one week and then all "it's always been you" to Francis this week. I am SO ENRAGED lol

That dress is so stunning, it made me gasp the first time I saw a photo of it. Kenna always looks like she should be selling daisies on Haight Ashbury and dancing to Jefferson Airplane tunes she hears in her head. Her wardrobe is worse than anyone else's on the show...including the servants.

I've seen the pretty Cyrus/Alice/firework gifs from OUaTiW and they are so adorable. (What's happening to me? I usually hate TV pairings???) Cyrus is so distractingly pretty that he makes me all gushy and ~emotional~.

(Oh, and your icon is booooootiful!♥)

You know plumping for the less attractive (and more rat-faced) brother wouldn't be so bad if he had a sparkling personality or actually treated her like a Queen but the guy SUCKS. Hopefully we'll find out that Evil!Anne had hypnotized Mary or something which resulted in her flip-flopiness and she'll finally regain her common sense again.

Kenna always looks like she should be selling daisies on Haight Ashbury and dancing to Jefferson Airplane tunes she hears in her head.
Haha! I love this whole comment so much. Maybe next season we'll fid out that she's actually a time traveler sent from the year 1968....

I was SO MAD last night. I know history says she marries Francis, and I was resigned to that. But it didn't have to be at Bash's expense the way it was. And forcing him to watch the consummation (which, ew) was so cruel.

I hope Mary finds out, like, the next morning, that Francis had just gotten back from banging her homegirl. He's just so worthy of her love, right? Ugh.

At this point I want Clarissa to kill everyone.

LOL me too! I was in such a rage after I watched it this morning. In fact, I've been in a bad mood all day because of it lol. A small (delusional) part of me was hoping she'd marry Francis ~for country and they'd agree on a marriage in name only (oh, and do the deed once or twice to get an heir) but that she'd carry on with Bash & Francis could keep all his mistresses. But no, let's make Mary into a silly little doormat who totally forgets how Francis treated her like crap.

Clarissa needs to steal some of Evil!Anne's poison and pour it into the castle's wine supply.

I was SO mad at the end of the episode and my whole family was asking me why I kept throwing things at the tv. :[

But from a calmer standpoint this morning I noticed a few really hopeful things...first of all Francis is going to supposedly die a year into their marriage. That means he'll be gone by the end of next season at the latest. *throws confetti* I liked Francis at first, tolerated him for a while, but now after what he said to Bash at the end and what I'm pretty sure he did (I don't really think Catherine would want Bash dead now and unless Henry did it it's gotta be Francis) I absolutely loathe him. I also see a lot of troubles ahead regarding him being faithful to Mary and judging from next week's promo their marriage is going to be anything but happy.

I hate what they've done with Mary, too. She was such an interesting, strong character and they've made her weak and pathetic. The dress was really gorgeous, though, and as always, I adore her tiara.

Kenna needs to croak. Soon. I keep hoping Henry will behead her or something. Ugh, I hate her.

I'm sooo happy Clarissa isn't dead, though.

Clarissa & that dress were the only positives I took from that episode lol.

I didn't get to watch it Thursday when it aired, but I watched most of it on Friday morning (enough to get a gist of what was going on). I sat down this morning to make myself watch it all the way thru and ended up deleting it about 10 minutes in. Before anything actually happened to piss me off. My brain just kept looping Mary & Francis' stupid faces during their ~~consummation (especially when they made eye contact with Bash) and was like "NOPE I'M DONE HERE". I can't wait til Henry takes that lance to his eye and Francis gets his rotting ear. Then I'll have something to cheer about.

Well, for Mary at least, I didn't think she looked terribly happy. Certainly not like a woman who was completely confident that she'd made the right choice.

Haha, same here. As long as Kenna gets killed off, too.

That dress is so pretty! xD

I haven't watched the show myself, but I know that my sister was all about it. I'll have to ask her if she's frustrated too lol.

I don't watch the show and I know very little about the romantic (or hell, even political) exploits of these people in history...but does the show retain any historical linkage? Like, did Mary actually marry Francis in RL?

That dress is stunning though.
Mar. 9th, 2014 03:24 am (UTC)
Yep, she did marry Francis in real life and he died about a year and a half later. They were 14 when they married & it's believed the marriage was never consummated (on the show, he's 17, she's 15 and they had a public consummation that the show tried to pass off as ~~sexy). Basically, the only parts of the show that resemble history are that some of the names are correct & that it takes place in France ;) #historynerd

LOL at Adelaide acting 15. No 15 year old is that stunning! Thanks for the info.
