Reign: Bash [ISTP]

OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / The Mod.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Bash is able to make decisions devoid of emotion, for a greater cause. He has a natural instinct for taking a problem and finding a creative solution to it, such as out-maneuvering the pagans in the woods and sacrificing one of them in Mary’s place. But most of his intellect is not focused on externally shaping the world (becoming king, governing, creating laws) so much as it is toward internal consistency of thought, and in pointing out and noticing logical failings in others (including, at times, Francis).

Extroverted Sensing (Se): He is opportunistic, aware of his environment, and inclined to act within it, for immediate benefit. When Mary shows an interest in him, Bash reciprocates without much thought for the consequences of these actions; he easily fits into the position of a potential future ruler and enjoys the comforts it offers him. But he can also turn around, abandon his former life, and become a nomad when it suits. Bash seems practical and unsentimental about the throne, what it represents, and his own childhood.

Introverted Intuition (Ni): His ability to sense others’ intentions and predict their behavior helps him in out-thinking the pagans, as well as in discerning what to do about threats to the realm. Bash often works toward the “greater good” of his kingdom, an abstract concept that sometimes means he must step aside and allow others to rule.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Though amiable and warm-hearted, Bash’s morals are dependent on the situation at hand; he can be argued into an immoral action for a greater cause. He confesses his feelings about Mary freely and is disappointed when she doesn’t reciprocate; he wants his marriage to work out enough to make a real attempt to give Kenneth a chance, even though they were forced into it.

Mary, Season 2

Whether you are a Frary or Monde fan, I think everyone should be pissed at how ignorant the writers made Mary out to be towards the end of season 2. The scene where Francis basically had to give her a play by play of why Conde would want to go after him is just pathetic, honestly. Why are you making Mary out to be a complete idiot? How can you have Mary making all these speeches about how powerful she is as a woman and queen saying how no one can take her crown, but then have her be completely unaware of why someone like Conde would want to go after Francis’ throne? How could she possibly know how to protect her own crown and countries if she is completely oblivious to why and how someone would go after the Kings crown and countries? The writers need to realize that just because Mary went through serious trauma doesn’t mean her brain has to stop functioning properly.
