Just Mary’s development as queen this episode:

BUT FRANCIS BASICALLY THE WHOLE EPISODE:

Anyone getting that feeling that...

Francis is thinking more clearly in this marriage than Mary? I really want to say he is way more invested just because of the fact that we have heard him profess his loyalty to her and saying that he will be by her side/they can figure it out together, but we have never really heard Mary profess the same. 

I loved the episode up until the last scene where we learn that Mary was actually ready to betray France (and Francis along with it) for her country. Ya know, I get it, but I mean, she could have made a plan with Francis or made a bluff or something… 

I love Francis, so I always have to think “am I just defending him for no reason at all or am I making sense?” And I just hope that we get to see him do something with his power (even though he is only a prince…for now) that shows his loyalty to his country and his marriage while also showing him as a great ruler.

That is all…for now. 

Okay, so you may not like Francis and Mary together but come on, when they were plotting together it was just THE CUTEST! And when he was fanboying over her speech to the Scotsmen!

EPISODE 17 OF REIGN - LIEGE LORD

OMGOSH MARY IN THIS EPISODE WAS AWESOME, THE SCENE WHERE SHE SAID “I AM THE QUEEN OF SCOTLAND AND NOT THE QUEEN OF MARY DE GUISE” AND HER WHOLE SPEECH WITH THE SCOTS

AND FRANCIS JUST LOOKING AT HIS WIFE PROUDLY AND ADORINGLY

AND I EVEN ADORED THE SCENE WHERE BASH CAME TO TAKE KENNA AWAY FROM THE KING BECAUSE HE WAS GENUINELY WORRIED FOR HER AND KENNA JUST LIGHTLY PUTS HER HEAD ON BASH’S SHOULDER AS THEY WALK AWAY TOGETHER

ALTHOUGH I’M A BIT WORRIED WITH FRANCIS' REACTION TO MARY TELLING HIM THAT SHE WASN’T BLUFFING WITH THE QUEEN

PLEASE REIGN WRITERS,

  • Lord Mackenzie:You'd defy Marie de Guise?
  • Queen Mary:I would defy the devil himself if he'd try to buy and sell my country. I will not risk Scotland's freedom. So like my father I ask you to give up your comfort and do what is right. You will lose your business deal, you will earn the anger of my mother, and I have nothing to give you in exchange except my gratitude
  • (Men pull out their weapons and bow)
  • Lord Mackenzie:Your Majesty. We have waited a long time for you to rise.

1988. Master Control

is the third album by band Liege Lord.

Liege Lord’s music is fast, energetic, heavy, and catchy as hell - all the qualities of a top-notch power metal band. Their previous two albums are both very good 80s USPM, but they lacked the sheer perfection found in Master Control. If you’ve heard the first two albums, the first thing that you will immediately notice from the opening chord of Fear Itself is the production, The previous two albums suffered from very lacking production, which always detracted from the enjoyment of the music, but fortunately this is not the case on Master Control. The guitars are crunchy and heavy, the drums are hard-hitting, and the vocals are clearly audible but not overpowering. The bass perhaps could have been slightly louder, but that’s nitpicking - the production is damn near flawless.

this album is a shining example of the best the genre has to offer. From start to finish, Master Control never once disappoints. This is an absolutely essential album for any fan of ( “‘speed/power metal”“). In fact, even if you’re not a power metal fan, give this a listen - if you enjoy good music, you won’t be disappointed.
