"Speak! While there is still mercy in my heart!"
Queen Elizabeth


Mary's Life Hangs in the Balance
Childbirth threatens to take Mary's life, which leaves her and her unborn child's safety in jeopardy. Elizabeth discovers that someone in her inner circle was the cause of the death of someone close to her.


Queen Catherine: Leeza, my child, oh, it's been so long.
Queen Leeza: Spare me the pleasantries, Mother. I'm not here to see you.

Queen Leeza: I suppose there's nothing to be done... Except, stay for the King’s wedding.
Pince Henri: You can’t be serious Leeza!
Princess Claude: I was almost sent to a nunnery for following my heart!

Pince Henri: Admit it, you don't love Charles, - You love me!
Nicole Touchet: It doesn't matter. He can make me queen of France. Which means I cannot love you, Henri.
Pince Henri: Well, it seems we're agreed then. We shouldn't love each other, and yet we do.

Luc Narcisse: You should go to Leith.
Princess Claude: What? I-I can't. You and I are married. Until death do us part.
Luc Narcisse: If you stay, it's your heart that will die. So will mine. As much as I've wanted this marriage to work, it can't. You love another.

Queen Elizabeth: His family's business depends on the gold it carries.
Jane: You're going to sink it?
Queen Elizabeth: No, I'm going to steal it.

Queen Mary: Greer. Bring Bothwell to me!
Lady Greer: I don’t want to leave you!
Queen Mary: Please! In case I need to say goodbye.

Queen Leeza: I am married to the most powerful man in the world, and I will not be threatened by my damaged brother who is unfit to rule.

Queen Mary: Greer. Greer, I love you.
Lady Greer: I love you too.

Queen Leeza: Stop starting at me witch!

Queen Elizabeth: Speak! While there is still mercy in my heart!
