Tonight’s Reign will be a turning point for all of our favorite royals (and royal adjacents). The photos make France seem like a winter wonderland, but decisions are made that will solidify some couples and potentially tear others apart.
FOR LOVE OR COUNTRY – When Mary’s uncle, the Duke of Guise (guest star Gil Darnell), arrives in France with devastating news about her mother, Mary (Adelaide Kane) and Francis (Toby Regbo) realize they are torn between putting their own countries first or saving their marriage. With the English throne in jeopardy, King Henry (Alan Van Sprang) hatches an elaborate plan that will end in disaster. Meanwhile, Bash (Torrance Coombs) and Kenna (Caitlin Stasey) solidify their marriage and begin to trust one another. Megan Follows, Anna Popplewell and Celina Sinden also star. The episode was directed by Chris Grismer and written by Mike Herro and David Strauss (#119).
With the English Queen Mary on her death bed and our beloved Mary Queen of Scots unlikely to reach for the throne since she is on the outs with Francis, Henry will attempt to grab it himself. But with his mind in shambles, fans are promised a disastrous result – I wonder if (Continue Reading…)
Oh freaking out here… anyone else?! This promo is delightfully pun-ny and brilliant and everything I like about the writing on Hannibal. Obviously Will Graham and Jack Crawford have reached an unspoken agreement. It’s all about the hair, fishing and dinner though… I say hair because it is probably not a good sign that Will is now slicking his hair back much like Hannibal does. Hmmm…
Really so much for let bygones be bygones. These three have such a wonderfully friendly vibe of menace going on with their adorable promises not to kill each other as long as they remain interesting to each other. I have this shirt that says: I’ll try to be nicer, if you try to be smarter. Same concept — except I will not eat you if you don’t manage.
Hey… yay for doggies being reunited with their Will!
But really what can I say about Yakimono without leaking spoilers all over the internet? Oh hey, uhm… Will is out of prison, absolved of all crimes he has been accused of. And they’ve found someone, a person who we met in the first season but assumed wrongly that she was dead. She could totally id Hannibal, except he has been keeping her alive and who knows what but Will how well Hannibal can manipulate his subjects’ minds. (And I use subject loosely.) Seriously though, Hannibal keeps people like livestock… LIKE LIVESTOCK. I don’t even know how to begin expressing my horrofic fascination at how well they’ve developed his warped mental perspective. Just WOW!
Well, it’s Friday and I’ve come to expect some basic tenets for this day. For one is anyone sick of always eating pizza on this night?! Right… just me then. And it’s movie night here… which okay, I am so down with that because we are watching The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and I did not get to see it in the theater! Dangit!
Believe me though, I will not be missing this one — The Maze Runner — though! And yeah, that’s another Friday night given. Here’s your promo photo:
Yeah… there’s a reason you’re both there, talking to each other like you’ve known each other for years. Sucks doesn’t it though… having your memory wiped. What?! Okay maybe that’s a bit spoilerish for anyone who hasn’t read the books, but seriously, believe me you’ll pick up on that from the trailers that will come as we get closer to September 19th, the official release date for the film.
We are so excited for what’s to come on Reign! And with every new nugget of information that is released, our excitement grows!
On the April 10th episode, titled “Liege Lord”, fans can look forward to Mary taking control of her life and going against those that are causing her trouble. If only she would do that with Francis, but one step at a time.
MARY MAKES A FATEFUL DECISION — When Mary (Adelaide Kane) learns of a secret clause in her marriage contract that her mother, Marie de Guise (guest star Amy Brenneman) and Queen Catherine (Megan Follows) orchestrated, Mary and Francis (Toby Regbo) embark on a dangerous plan to turn Scotland against her mother – and Mary gets her first taste of power as the Queen of Scots. Alan Van Sprang, Torrance Coombs, Celina Sinden, Anna Popplewell and Caitlin Stasey also star. The episode was directed by Allan Kroeker and written by Doris Egan (#117).
And from the promotional photos (below), it looks like Lola might become one less problem Mary has to deal with. Maybe there will be a quicky wedding in Lola’s future, since the wardrobe department seems to be making her pregnancy a bit more visible.
Are you as excited as we are about the future of Reign?
Tonight, Fannibals we get the hive murder scene. Hmmm… uhmmmm… gross! However, I’ll say it for this show, Bryan Fuller has gone all out on the freak show characters. Where he gets his inspiration, I do not want to know. If people exist out there, who have done these sort of violent acts… I… no. I would like this show to stay in the realm of disbelief please.
Even as I speak of not trusting this show to be real, part of me is enthralled with the psychological make-up of Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter. So yeah… my love of psychological thrillers is a conundrum, I know. Remember I’ll post the promo for Mukozuke (episode 5) tomorrow in the morning and the recap for Takiawase will follow shortly thereafter.
