There’s a few lies flying around the French court in this week, not just little fibs but great tales of subterfuge too, ones that could change the course of European history for ever. Some are pretty easy to spot or come to light by the end of the episode, another is worked out by one character, whom when met with disapproval of their own act, challenges one of the deceivers. But the biggest deception of all is something only we the audience become privy to for now, and I can’t see the holder of this dark secret wanting to share it with many people any time soon.
Catherine de Medici is being run ragged preparing for her beheading, there’s so much to do on the tight budget that Henry is allowing her that she’s already finding it hard to know where to focus her energy, and then the worst thing that can happen at a party happens, a gate crasher invites herself to the castle. Anyone who is aware of guest star Amy Brenneman screen presence will I am sure be eager to see her face off against Megan Follows, and I'm happy to report that they do not disappoint as the Scots’ Queen Regent and Queen of France battle it out at court, each trying to achieve their own personal goal.
So on to the wedding, what can I say, probably not as much as you’d like me to I'm afraid. The ceremony itself is fairly brief considering how long it’s taken to get to it, but still beautiful with has a fairytale like quality to it, and most importantly, as the title of the episode suggests, it is consummated and therefore legal and binding. As to which brother gets married and why, well a Nostradamus vision may have something to say about it, or Catherine might, Henry almost certainly will, and I’m sure Marie de Guise will be full of helpful advice too. But in the end will Mary, for once, choose her own fate?
