Our Undoing
" You see Mary, we’ve broken the Prince of Spain, the wrath of his father will reign down upon us."
Queen Catherine


Mary Must Decide Who She Can Trust
When Prince Don Carlos of Spain visits France, Mary uncovers a dark secret he is hiding and enlists in Catherine to advise her on how to handle. When Gideon, the new ambassador from English court arrives, suspicions arise about what his true intentions are, while Bash’s pursuit of the mysterious killer comes to a head at Greer’s tavern.


Queen Mary: Is that it? Our courtship is over. Was I wrong in thinking it was going well?

Queen Mary: No matter what you might think, I can’t just force men to fall in love with me.

Gideon Blackburn: (After carrying Mary, before putting her down) Your light as a feather, I swear!

Leith Bayard: My men will be stationed throughout the tavern, posing as customers.
Whore: (Points at Leith) That customer's mine.

Queen Catherine: If I cannot disprove these charges I will swing from a rope.

Queen Mary: Are you wearing mink-lined boots?
Queen Catherine: Well if I have to run I want to look good doing it.

Greer: Love is never simple. Not that I'm any expert.

Queen Catherine: It’s his skull , it cracked. He impaired it on the back of that thing.
Queen Mary: We have to get help.
Queen Catherine: Uhh it’s too late- He’s dead. You see Mary, we’ve broken the Prince of Spain, the wrath of his father will reign down upon us.
