Queen of Scotland Mary Stuart travels to France with four ladies-in-waiting to secure her politically strategic engagement to the king's son, Prince Francis. Mary and Francis share a mutual attraction, even though he has reservations about the wisdom of an alliance with Scotland. Complicating issues is Bash, Francis' illegitimate half-brother whom Mary finds herself drawn to in spite of herself. The French Court is also full of less romantic challenges for Mary, who finds her engagement -- and life -- threatened until she finds an ally in a mysterious shrouded guide. With all that she faces, Mary rallies, readying herself to rule and trying to find a balance between the demands of her country and those of her heart.
This show has always been unpredictable. It leaps blithely into and out of the historical timeline; it carries incisive commentary on the perils of trying to wield power as a woman in a system designed for men...One of the major challenges that’s always faced Reign was how closely it would follow Mary’s historical downfall, and so far, at least, there’s no sense of that here. Mary and Elizabeth are living in parallel loneliness, but they’re determined to pursue power, and being lonely has never stopped either of them before. I can’t imagine where the show goes from here; bring on next season.--Genevive Valentine, A.V. Club, June 20, 2016
