Reign's Adelaide Kane Dishes on Mary and Francis (Did They?), Painful Prophecy Fallout

We know we should be very concerned that, in this week’s fall finale of Reign, Mary finally learns about Nostradamus’ chilling prophecy.

And we are.

But there’s just a little bit of bump-’n'-grind business left over from last episode, and happens to be overshadowing even the mystic’s ominous forecast of death in the palace: Did Mary and Francis actually have sex?

As fans of the CW period drama know, there’s no such thing as a causal roll in the hay for the teen queen. While her betrothed is able to do as he pleases, her much touted “virtue” is the key to their countries’ alliance and a measure of her worth as a suitable wife. Could Francis’ gallantry in ending the castle’s siege have trumped it all?

Read on for star Adelaide Kane‘s thoughts on the matter, as well as for a preview of how Thursday’s hour (9/8c) will unfold.

TVLINE | In the last episode, at the very end, Mary climbed into bed with Francis?! I was shocked.
[Laughs] I think a lot of people were. On Tumblr, on Twitter, all of the sites, fans had really mixed reactions… With something like that, that’s so important… you want to share that with somebody special and you want to be with someone who loves just you .You want it to be meaningful. [After the end of the siege,] in the heat of the moment, she went to him and thought, “If I can have this one thing, I would want to give it to you out of anybody else.” But it still remains debatable if they… They were mackin’, but you never know./>

TVLINE | Will we find out in this next episode, what happened?
Yes, you will. Remember, they’ve been intimate before without crossing that final boundary./>

TVLINE | In this episode, Mary finds out about Nostradamus’ prediction of death in the castle. How does she react?
It slowly dawns on her that perhaps Nostradamus’ predictions are correct. And then it’s a question of: Does she take what she wants and marry the man that she loves? Or does she continue to seek desperately for another option to spare him his life? It’s an incredibly hard decision./>

TVLINE | Mary is always put in these positions with impossible outcomes.
Rock and a hard place. [Laughs] She’s just treading water all the time. Just when she thinks she’s in the clear, something else comes out of the blue, and she’s just managing the best that she can. She’s not a political creature, so she’s definitely learning as she goes./>

TVLINE | Last week, Mary learned a bit about what Catherine went through as a young woman. It seems like there’s a bit more respect between them now.
Mary has a better understanding of Queen Catherine and what made her the woman she is today, the calculating woman that she is, what motivates her. Catherine’s life is about her children. Her children are her love, her life. She has learned not to trust anything else other than her own power. And she has invested all of her power, all of her love in protecting her children./>

[When the prophecy is revealed,] I think she also starts to understand Catherine’s motivation. She might not like it – she’s almost had her killed half a dozen times – but she gets it, almost against her will. I think it would be easy for Mary to write Queen Catherine off as a villain, but she isn’t; she’s so much more than that. And if Mary is anything, she is fair. She will see all sides of the story and make a judgment.

TVLINE | Elsewhere in the episode, it seems like Kenna has set up an interesting position for herself.
She has./>

TVLINE | She and Catherine are colluding against Diane.
[Kenna is] dabbling in politics as well, albeit somewhat clumsily. She’s decided to stick her nose in other people’s business and has discovered Diane’s plotting, and sells Diane out to Catherine./>

TVLINE | It’s interesting that you say she’s somewhat clumsy about what she’s doing – Mary doesn’t have much practice in politics, but it seems to me that Kenna knows even less.
I would say Kenna knows more than Mary does in that she’s grown up in court, but I see Kenna that she was maybe a little spoiled as a child. She’s a beautiful lady that grew up in the Scottish court and she knows the rules of that court, but the French court is quite different./>

TVLINE | We haven’t mentioned Bash yet in this conversation, but I can’t imagine he’s far from Francis and Mary’s drama in this episode.
Of course. Bash is always there on the sidelines. That ties in a lot with Diane’s plotting. Sebastian is fiercely loyal to his family, his father and his brother. He comes to a crossroads where he has to make a decision about what’s more important to him… We’ll see it play out over the next episode or two./>

TVLINE | Finally, Clarissa…
Dude, everybody loves Clarissa./>

TVLINE | She’s your friend in the walls!
Fans freaking love her… She’s super cool. You will get to know more about her backstory as the season progresses… The good thing about Clarissa, the interesting thing is that her motivation is completely her own. She’s not driven by politics, she’s not driven by love. She has her own moral code and her own set of reasons for doing what she does. And those will unfold throughout the season. She’s one of those characters who’s beholden to no one and has a lot of freedom, and as a result is incredibly dangerous./>
