Reign - Season 2



The second season of Reign, an American historical fantasy, consisted of 22 episodes which aired between October 2, 2014, and May 14, 2015. The series, created by Stephanie SenGupta and Laurie McCarthy, aired on The CW.




Reign - Season 2



The season opens after the death of King Henry II, and follows the rise of Francis and Mary as King and Queen of France and Scotland. Together they have to balance their marriage with their roles as monarchs, and deal with the rising religious conflict between Catholics and Protestants, as well as the ambitions of the rival House of Bourbon for the throne of France.


We knew things wouldn't be easy for Mary when Francis returned with Lola and their son in tow, but she surprised me. A lot of people saw the way Mary dealt with Edward Narcisse in Reign Season 2 Episode 1 as an indication she is following in Catherine's footsteps. While she may have been cunning with her machinations of the situation, she chose not to follow the path set by a nobleman because she wants things to be different under her reign with Francis.


1. The royals have more than just the plague to worry about.While season 1 left off on a cliffhanger with a resurgence of the Black Plague spreading rapidly towards French Court, Mary and Francis will have bigger problems as the season progresses.


Season Two of Reign premiered on October 2 of 2014, it was announced on May 15th that it would stay in its Thursday night timeslot following The Vampire Diaries. The renewal of Reign for a second season was announced by the CW on February 13th, 2014 [1].


This season very much deals with how Francis learns how to be king. How is he like his father [the late King Henry]? How is he different than his father? How does life harden him? Kings have to make very tough decisions, so he comes in with a very strong moral compass. He says he is going to do things differently than his dad, but then quickly realizes all the various push and pulls of running a kingdom.


There was an episode last season where Henry shagged a woman out a window and Katherine spent the episode hiding the body and covering it up. There is a nice sense of humor to that. We shot an episode this season that is reminiscent of that humor.


So Reign is two for two when it comes to astonishingly riveting finales. Like, "Burn" was so good I'm almost angry? It was very hard for me to watch so many storylines take these intriguing turns and then go straight into summer withdrawal, but that is what a finale is for: to get you excited for the next season. Reign answered the biggest question of this series: Did Mary still love Francis and therefore would she would marry, eff, or kill Conde? But the finale also presented us with about a dozen other questions that urgently needed answering. Where is Conde now? What will Elizabeth do next? Kenna is pregnant? Francis is dying?!


The Show: Prince Louis of Conde appears in the earliest episodes of the season, arriving at court to show his support for his cousin, Francis. He immediately ingratiates himself with Mary and supports Francis despite his zeal for Protestantism which puts him in opposition to the faith of the land.


Reign is historical trash fic at its finest. I spent the first season in outrage, and then just settled in for the proverbial drinking games, because I had totally given up on them being remotely historically accurate at that point. My head-cannon is, this is set in a fantasy France in a different time period and has nothing to do with actual history. Alternate dimension timeline, clearly.


Produced by Warner Brothers Television and CBS Television Studios, Reign ran on The CW between October 2013 and June 2017. It racked up a total of 4 seasons across 78 episodes. The series is still well-regarded after all these years after its finale aired on June 16th, 2017.


While the first season focused significant time on world building, Season 2 fleshes out the characters further and builds on the already strong foundations of the story, exploring memory and perception as underlying themes for the season. The third and fourth episodes, written respectively by Bryan Cogman and Vanessa Taylor, display this with heartbreaking clarity, depicting the beauty of the landscape at odds with its harshness. The civilization that is encountered here is a far crueler and darker place than one might have imagined: morality is a mercurial concept here and honor makes a poor shield.


Season two of The CW's royal series will premiere Thursday, Oct. 2and we're eager to reunite with our favorite fictionalized historical figures. Not only will the drama pick up right where we left off, but star Adelaide Kane promised ETonline that fans are in for an action-packed season, complete with even more of the boundary-pushing scenes that made Reign the talk of the TV kingdom.


However, a new bundle of problems will arise now that Lola (Anna Popplewell), aka one of Mary's very best friends, has given birth to Francis' child. (You'll have to tune in Thursday night to find out if it's a boy or a girl!) This strained love triangle relationship will play a heavy role in season two.


But Mary is not going to let personal complications affect her regal duties. In fact, Kane spilled that Mary will be "getting her manipulation cap on" as the season progresses. "Mary starts taking on more of those manipulative, Catherine-esque elements," the brunette beauty said. "Even without realizing it, she's becoming more and more like Catherine."


We can confirm that Mary does make a particularly ruthless decision at the end of the end of the season two premiere, and although we're not spilling any details, just know that your jaw will be on the floor. However, despite this slightly-out-of-character move, Mary and Francis will try to hold on to their humanity during their rule.


"They are going to be seen as weak because they're compassionate," Kane revealed. That's hard to imagine because after watching Thursday night's premiere, "weak" is going to be the last word you would associate with Mary. Long may she reign...


The opportunity arrived quicker than expected as Beltran, who has the highest batting average and slugging percentage in postseason history, strained his left knee running out a double-play grounder in the first inning. He's listed as day-to-day.


Carpenter cashed in on his first at-bat of the NLCS by driving a Cain slider over the right-center field fence in the third inning with Jon Jay on base, putting St. Louis ahead 2-1. Carpenter had six homers in 296 at-bats during the regular season.


For the fourth time in six seasons, the dramatically outplayed 0-2 Heat are facing premature first-round playoff elimination. Not exactly the kind of results you expect from such a richly talented and excessively compensated team directed and produced by the ordained minister himself.


The Ontario Reign will hit the road and travel up north to take on the Calgary Wranglers. For those that need a refresher, the Calgary Wranglers relocated from Stockton after the 2021-2022 season concluded. The Stockton Heat and the Ontario Reign had some great battles with seven of the eight games being decided by two goals or less. This week the Reign and Wranglers will meet up for the first time this season. Both teams have won eight of their last ten games with Calgary being only two points ahead of Ontario in the standings. It should be a fun, exciting two games.


Return of Little Orphan Black: The other major debut on Amazon Prime this week was Season 4 of Orphan Black. While fans of the show are starting to countdown to the fifth and final season of the series, the penultimate season, unfortunately, was only the 5th most popular TV show viewed on Amazon Prime this week, drawing a 4% share.


Ivan Cruz Uceda came off the bench to add 18 points, as Miami (20-11, 10-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) hit 15 3-pointers in reaching the 20-win mark for the third time in four seasons. The Hurricanes closed the regular season by winning three of their final four and six of their final nine games. 041b061a72
