No Way Out
To The Death
- "As for Mary Stuat. I am resending my offer. I shall never name an heir unless it is my own child. To name a successor is to place a target on ones self. And so long as I live I shall be the Queen of England. And when I am dead, whoever has the most right shall successed me. "
- —Queen Elizabeth
Mary Must Decide if She Should save Elizabeth
Mary, in order to protect Elizabeth, unknowingly puts Gideon’s life in danger. To save him, Mary turns to another Englishman for help – Robert Dudley. Meanwhile, Bash is determined to track down the men behind the threats to Catherine.
Robert Dudley: Impressive. Where did you learn to shoot like that?
Queen Mary: My late husband. He thought it was a skill that would serve me well.
Robert Dudley: Well King Francis was right. Now that I've seen your abilities with a bow, I certainly won't be crossing you.
Robert Dudley: It's funny isn't in. Both of us here, we already know we've had our one true love.
Queen Elizabeth: No, Joseph Tudor will be blamed for this. The traitor has been brought home to England where I have ordered him to be drawn and quartered. That will serve as an example to anyone who dare threaten my reign.

Queen Catherine: If you think you are not going to talk, you are mistaken.
Lady Greer: I was willing to give up so much for you. But now I want you out of my life. Forever.
Robert Dudley: I thought he was a free man?
Queen Elizabeth: He somehow infuriated The Pope. I guess he can’t charm everyone.

Queen Catherine: From where I sit- Which is on the French Throne as it’s Regent- I see The Vatican pushing around it’s female monarchs and I don’t appreciate it one bit! You can go now.
