Every episode of Versailles: 2x1 “The Labyrinth”.

“The story you are about to see takes place many hundreds of years ago but, despite what you might have read, the past is not a prologue.
History offers us not a context, but a lens, a lesson for our present and a vision of our future.
(…)And although this is a story of the men of yesterday, doubt not that, in this moment, in this very space, they live again, reborn, reaching out over the centuries to show us all that, as the sands of our lives dwindle and vanish, we are all of us making history, here and now.” 

Mary and Francis died and literally met each other in the afterlife, like nothing changed. “I’ve been waiting for you.” Their love never died. It was just put on hold until Mary could go and join Francis. And I am an emotional mess. Like CW finally gave me my death endgame. Like they really did that and I am so grateful. SO emotional. Because it’s you, its always been you.

↳ ❝my dearest mary, if you are reading this, then you are leaving france to reclaim your scottish throne. i always knew this day would come and i wish i could be at your side as you set sail to take back what is yours. in the darkest of times, you were my conscience. your heart was a light, mary, and it burned so very bright for france. no matter how far you go, that light will burn forever. i have left you a gift, something i made for you to fight for what is yours and for what you know in your heart is right. i love you, mary stuart. forever.
