Mary Aligns Herself With Catherine
Mary realizes she must help Catherine in her quest to become regent, even at the risk of hurting the alliance with Scotland. Claude is determined to help Leith marry while Elizabeth struggles with the prospect of losing Dudley.


Lady Greer: Mary, you are not fine. You just lost the man you love, and now they are moving you to a lesser room, treating the Queen of Scotland like she’s-
Queen Mary: An outside? That’s because I am.

Queen Mary: I may still a Queen. But I am no longer the Queen of France.

Queen Catherine: How can I pray to God, when I am certain he doesn’t not hear me.
