It's queen vs. queen on Reign!
The two most important ladies in Prince Francis' (Toby Regbo) life have quite the complicated dynamic on the new CW hit series as Queen Catherine (Megan Follows) is dead-set on getting Mary Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane) away from her son (and the crown) as she's convinced she will cause his death. (Prophecies, so hot right now.)
In an exclusive sneak peek from tonight's episode, the two queens finally face-off (and team up?!) as Mary attempts to get King Henry to end her engagement to Francis so she can marry Tomas, the son of the King of Portugal. Prepare for epic b--ch-faces and snarktastic dialogue!
In the exclusive clip, the two women face-off as Mary waits to plead her case to the king. "I'm glad my unhappiness brings you such pleasure," Mary snarks to Catherine, who is quick to clarify that only Mary's "absence" from French Court would definitely make her happy.
But it's revealed that Catherine actually favored Mary when she was a young girl, but of course that all changed with Nostradamus' prediction that Mary will cause Francis' death. "When I look at you, I see death," Catherine admits. But that doesn't mean she won't try and help Mary change the king's mind...
While Catherine may seem purely evil, Follows defends her character, saying she's doing whatever it takes to survive in a world that sets women up to fail. "We're talking about a very precarious position because as a woman my survival is really predicated on whether my husband being king or my son," she told us. "And even my husband has made It very known that he has someone else. It's a really dangerous position. It's about surviving."
Reign airs tonight at 9 p.m. on the CW.
