We’re just dipping our toes in the waters with Reign, but already things are starting to heat up in the love life of Mary, Queen of Scots. Prince Tomas of Portugal (Manolo Cardona) is arriving at the castle, and he’ll stop at nothing to steal Mary’s (Adelaide Kane) favor away from Prince Francis (Toby Regbo).
In the promo for Episode 4 (“Hearts and Minds”), we see a rivalry escalate between Tomas and Francis — and it’s in the form of an archery match, obvi.
But don’t think Francis is going to let Tomas step in and take what he believes to be his. The French prince tells Sebastian (Torrance Coombs) that there are rumors that the Portuguese prince murdered his first wife (uh-oh, look out Mary!). And in a seemingly desperate attempt to keep Mary all to himself, we see Francis swooning the Scottish queen in the woods under a tree.
Tomas isn’t going to let that get to him, though. “She’s my property now, no matter how many touches you steal,” he says ominously. Whoa there. We know this is set in the past, but Tomas seriously needs to read up on his feminist theory.
We’ll have to wait and see which suitor is going to win over Mary’s heart, but in the meantime, check out the full promo below!
