Episode Guide
The Lamb and the Slaughter


Three Queens
"I worry because as a King and as a man I want heirs. Is that what you want to hear? Does it bring us closer for you to know that your failure disappoints me beyond words? Have I answered you fully? Are we done with this relentless interrogation?"
King Francis


Church VS. State
Tensions between Protestants and Catholics escalates when bloodshed at a Protestant service causes an already concerned Mary and Francis to intervene on the eve of Greer's wedding. Bash and Leith lead a search for the guilty that revels a surprising secret about Castleroy (Michael Therriault) that could destroy his union with Greer. Meanwhile, Francis receives an unwelcome gift from his dead father. Kenna discovers a sex journal, with clues leading to the best lover at court, who might be a match for Lola.


Louis Condé: If you release them, you'll be smiling on murder.

Queen Catherine: You may go, Marie. And please...Your hair.

Queen Catherine: Henry died. I live.

Lady Kenna: Talk to him, see if there's more to him than..
Lady Lola: Everything we already know.

Lord Narcisse: Perhaps you are not your father after all.
King Francis: As long as you never give me a reason to be.

King Francis: You're not going anywhere. You're thinking that if I were my father, you'd be dead by now.
Lord Narcisse: But apparently you're not your father. You went one better by killing him.
King Francis: Against my word, all you have are the rantings of a deranged woman.
Lord Narcisse: Who you are locking up so no one may hear what she has to say. As well you should, because in truth, no rumor could be as dangerous as fratricide. It's a crime against France, against God; anyone who commits it or even knows of it could be summarily put to death -- man, woman, King or Queen. Which is why I imagine your Queen knows nothing of this.

Queen Catherine: Honestly, is Greer dragging out the suspense to make a grander entrance? Will she be arriving on flying swans?

Queen Mary: Do you worry that I can't bear you a child?
King Francis: Yes! I worry because as a King and as a man I want heirs. Is that what you want to hear? Does it bring us closer for you to know that your failure disappoints me beyond words? Have I answered you fully? Are we done with this relentless interrogation?
Queen Mary: When you told me you hadn't lost hope...
King Francis: I lied. Mary, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have. I wish...
Queen Mary: For something I can't give you. Well, I asked you for the truth and you certainly gave it to me. I don't need to hear anymore.
