WNAB-TV CW58 Shows - Reign
Arriving in France with four close friends as her ladies-in-waiting, Mary has been sent to secure Scotlands strategic alliance by formalizing her arranged engagement to the French kings dashing son, Prince Francis.
But the match isn't signed and sealed, it depends more on politics, religion and secret agendas than affairs of the heart. Prince Francis is intrigued by the fiery Scot, but like most young men, he resists the idea of settling down into marriage, especially when he has a history with a lady of the court and his own point of view on the wisdom of an alliance with Scotland. Still, an attraction between Mary and Francis is ignited.
Further complicating things is Bash, Francis handsome, roguish half-brother, who has a history of his own " despite his illegitimate birth, Bash is his fathers favorite. Though he is all too aware that Francis is the heir to the throne and Marys intended, Bash soon develops his own feelings for Mary. None of the intrigue at Court is lost on Francis mother, Queen Catherine. The strong-willed Queen is aware of Marys inflammatory effect on her son and his half-brother, just as she is aware of the dalliances of her husband, King Henry, not only with his mistress, but with other ladies of the Court, as well.
For guidance, Queen Catherine turns to her trusted advisor, the seer Nostradamus, who terrifies the Queen with his prophecy that marriage to Mary will cost Francis his life. Catherine is determined to save her son, no matter how many others have to pay with their lives.
