If you're like us, you have about a gazillion questions swimming around in your head after last night's mind-boggling episode of The Royals, but the biggest one is: Did Queen Helena really commit murder to take the throne?
Luckily, James Lafferty, who directed the episode, feels our pain and can commiserate with our poor, conflicted emotions after that juicy twist. "It's very much sort of a push and pull with what we're finding out about her," he exclusively tells E! News. "We learn to care for her a bit and then we learn to sort of be scared of her a bit."
Watch the clip for more of James' thoughts on the dramatic revelation!
Don't miss an all-new episode of The Royals Sunday at 10 p.m., only on E!
