Reign Season 4: Episode 14, a new tragic death, our critic
Check out our review of Episode 14 of Season 4 of Reign, which aired last night on the American channel The CW.
It is still a dirty episode for our favorite queens … As we get closer to the final series of Reign , nothing makes life easier for Mary or Elizabeth and it is with surprise that we Discovers that it is Narcissus who causes them all this pain. In Scotland, episode 14 begins while Mary takes back her castle with the help of her allies and has executed one of the people responsible for the rebellion and death of Rizzio. Unfortunately for her, the two most important traitors are also those who are untouchable: John Knox and Darnley . The latter poses difficulties to Mary since the beginning and the queen of Scotland no longer knows whether he is an enemy or an ally. She keeps changing her mind about him, much to Bothwell’s displeasure. Finally, After discovering the horrors made by Narcisse during the episode – a big thank you to the director for not showing us what was in the box … – Mary decides that she must present a unified front if She wants the wave of vengeance to calm down. Unfortunately for her, it is discovered that Darnley is still plotting against her, but also that the king of Scotland is most certainly crazy.
Moreover, what Elizabeth saw in England during this episode of Reign is much more tragic. The Queen of England still faces the same dilemma: she loves a man she can not publicly marry. She believes she can make the best of her situation by marrying the Archduke and keeping Gideon near her at the court. However, when Gideon discovers that she has already slept with the Archduke and agreed to banish him, he realizes that he refuses to share the one he loves with another. Listening to her heart, Elizabeth then breaks off her engagement with the archduke and unites with Gideon in an abandoned chapel. While the two lovebirds enjoy this moment of happiness, Gideon collapses. Narcissus not only castrated John Knox to avenge Lola’s death.
The French plot always remains to our eyes the least interesting, especially since at the moment we do not see at all how it will be linked to the other two intrigues . However, there is still quite a lot of stuff in this episode 14 of Reign’s season 4 , started with a little deepening of the character of Henri. Since his arrival, he is only seen as an arrogant young man, and there it is discovered that he likes to dress as a woman, that he feels himself more powerful. It helps us to have a lot more empathy for him. For his part, Luke asks Charles to grant to him and Claude a cancellation of their marriage because, in spite of the feelings that it has for her, the heart of Claude still belongs to Leith. This little conversation gives Charles some ideas, Who is supposed to choose the future queen of France among Spanish contenders. As we know, the children of Catherine De Medicis like to make only their head and Charles announces before all the court that Nicole will be the future queen, which rages the Spanish ambassador. This decision should have heavy repercussions on Charles and France and it could lose the support of the Kingdom of Spain. What did you think of this episode?
