If you thought the premiere episode of The Royals was insane, then clearly you haven't watched the second episode. Or maybe you have...

From devious socialite ex-girlfriends to bodyguards with questionable motives, the episode was packed with drama. Creator Mark Schwahn sat down to give us his personal take on the second episode along with an inside scoop on what to expect in the upcoming season.

Princess Eleanor (Alexandra Park) may be the victim of blackmail by her bodyguard Jasper (Tom Austen), but this is one princess who refuses to back down when she decides to make a play for Jasper's hero, an Olympic swimmer.

"Eleanor is not someone to be manipulated," Mark said. "Because she has become accustomed to getting her way and she's not getting her way, but we have a feeling she's not going to stand for that."

We were also introduced to a new character—socialite Gemma (Sophie Colquhoun), the ex-girlfriend of Prince Liam (William Moseley) who decides to pay him a surprise visit...in her lingerie.

"I think that you have this really compelling character," Mark pointed out. "Who becomes a very worthy adversary to Ophelia (Merritt Patterson) and a very worthy contender for Liam."
