With all the scheming, backstabbing and betrayal packed into an average episode of Reign, we probably should have seen this coming. During the February 27 episode of the CW historical drama, two important characters will be kidnapped.
But just who is in danger? And at whose hand? E! Online reports that Clarissa, the “castle ghost” responsible for Aylee’s death, will kidnap Queen Catherine’s two youngest children, Charles and Henry. (Yes, that would Francis’s little brothers, and the next two males in line to the throne of France. Well, provided Bash’s legitimization scheme doesn’t go through.)
In Reign’s most recent episode, we learned that Clarissa is actually the firstborn daughter of Queen Catherine; born out of wedlock and long presumed dead. The cunning (but, let’s face it, mentally unstable) Clarissa is furious after her mother called her “freak” to her face. We get that. We do. But kidnapping Catherine’s children. Clearly, the castle ghost is not one to be messed with!
So are the boys’ lives at risk? "I know she feels very close to those two little boys, so there's some genuine love and affection here," actress Katie Boland says. That said, this is Clarissa we’re talking about. Even Katie willingly admits, "she's a little bit of a loose cannon."
With Francis still MIA, it will be up to Mary and Bash to head out into the woods and rescue the boys. Best of luck, you two!
