Lady Lola


Season Final
Mary makes a bold move to defend her reign in Scotland, which results in a battle royale with her cousin, Elizabeth. Lola is accused of a heinous crime and suffers the drastic consequences. Meanwhile, back in France, Catherine finds that Charles has returned a changed man after paying a price for his mother’s relentless quest for power.


Sebastian: Where are you going?
Mary Stuart: To show John Knox that Queens do not bow to their subjects. It is in-fact, quite the other way around.

Mary Stuart: And may God, and your Queen. Have mercy of your soul.

Lady Lola: Please go. While I still have the courage to say goodbye.

Queen Catherine: Leith protect my daughter. May you cling to each other. May you have a long and happy life. I give you my blessing to wed.

Princess Claude: If you go on this mision. I’ll stop loving you!
Leith Bayard: You can do that. Just like that?
Princess Claude: Yes. Ask anyone. I’m as fickle as they come.
Leith Bayard: I suppose that does change things. Before, I had reason to return home quickly and all in one piece.

Sebastian: You murdered the man who took Francis from you.

Lady Lola: Protect my son! Tell John I love him. Tell him everyday!

Lady Lola: Stéphane. Let me go.

John Knox: If you care about your sister, don’t give her reason to misstep.
James Stuart: And if I care about my sister, what do I do about you!

Queen Catherine: My dearest son, you can’t hug your big brother whenever you like. He’s king. At the moment.

John Knox: Scotland could be the first true democracy since the Greeks!

Historical NotesEdit

  • Robert Dudley did marry Lettice Knollys but not for another 17 years, on 21 September 1578.
  • Executioners sometimes ask for forgiveness from whoever they were about to behead. As was the case for Anne Boleyn, right before her beheading.
