It comes back on the 16th of January (THIS WEEK!) when it will return to its usual slot with episode 6 ‘Chosen’. In the mean time let’s talk about the events of the last episode that aired on Prime, episode 5: ‘A Chill in the Air’. I do apologise that this is late, but at least I’m here with good news and hopefully some interesting banter for you!
So basically Olivia is Regina George and she’s about to take Aaron back. And so Mary has to resort to fighting things the way girls do in girl world. It’s a bit hard when Francis’ mum (as informed by some prophecy) is totally backing Regina.
‘A Chill in the Air’ is that episode, the one written to appeal to the non-canon shippers waiting in the wings for Francis to slip up and for Bash to swoop in and- what? Father a bastard? Ruin the already tentative alliance between Scotland and France? Or just make her feel better when Francis is being a bit of a douche. Let’s go with that last one.
Now plot-wise we’ve got a bit going on, mostly scheming on Catherine’s part to get Mary usurped by Francis’ former lover- a french blonde- in Francis’ affections and hopefully knocked up. Granted this is starting to get formulaic, at this point you can bet that in each episode we’ll have Catherine scheming to get Mary away from Francis, Francis feeling conflicted feelings and Mary left wondering why she loves someone so weak. Only this time Mary sees through it. She figures out the Queen’s scheme and decides to play the b at her own game. But not before pointing out how hard it is out there for a female- double standards and whatnot.
