Reign "Strange Bedfellows" Review - AVClub

AVClub: For all the time spent on romance in this show, Reign’s heart has always belonged to its women, and their hearts have always been most in love with power.

Some of that romance was formative; Francis and Bash in particular were two facets of the sort of intense infatuation royal tragedies are made of. And the show has wisely used Francis’ death as a way to mark the shift from young love to adulthood, and all the courtship chess these characters play feels more weighty since his death. The show’s incremental steps into alternate history definitely took on a new energy after the death of the king, and have cleared the way for a show decidedly about three queens who are tied to one another whether they like it or not.

The story is too old to be commented.
