King Henry (Alan Van Sprang) is willing to pay any price for England. Even his own son's life!

Will Francis (Toby Regbo) really die at the hand of his own father on Reign? Hey, crazier things have happened on the series...including Henry screwing a girl out of window. Literally. (Have we mentioned how much we love this show?!)

In an exclusive sneak peek from the CW hit's season one finale, titled "Slaughter of the Innocence," King Henry oh-so-casually plots his son's death. And you thought your relationship with your father was messed up!

And not only is King Henry planning on hosting a funeral for his heir soon, he's also planning another royal wedding—his own, to Francis' wife, Mary (Adelaide Kane)!

Yep, Henry is officially redefining the term "Mad King." (Sorry, Game of Thrones!)

Fortunately, it seems like Francis and Mary will be one step ahead of murderous Henry, as the episode description hints that the young couple will be forced to make some difficult decisions that could change the course of history when the King's cruelty and insanity reaches a new fevered pitch. 

Reign's season one finale airs Thursday at 9 p.m. on the CW.
