Are you ready for some separation anxiety?
You'll likely feel a little bit of it when Reign Season 2 premieres, as new King Francis II is reunited with Lola, who he fled the castle to save in Reign Season 1 Episode 22. They'll "find themselves on the wrong side of the quarantined gates," according to the official CW synopsis.
We also meet Louis Conde, a new confidant to the King. Can he be trusted? A real fellow named Price Louis of Conde tried to kidnap King Francis II in real life to topple the throne. It's a good guess this Conde won't be much better for Francis!
Mary will be left to deal with the onslaught of Black Plague inside the castle walls with Queen Catherine. Pressuring them both will be "new and murderous foes" in the form of noblemen who want to make a grab at the power the women hold.
With the Plague threatening everyone inside the castle, don't expect a lack of emotional intrigue as Kenna will be in danger protecting the ward she shares with Bash, from whom she's been separated and Greer has to watch Leith move on with his life with a new love.
Flip through the photos and be back here on Thursday, October 2 after Reign Season 2 Episode 1 airs for a full review!
