In A Clearing
"What’s the cost of a king’s life?"


Amy Brenneman Returns
After Mary receives an urgent message from her ailing mother (Amy Brenneman) about the dire situation in Scotland, she finds herself looking to Francis for aid. Catherine finds herself up against Narcisse as she fights to become the regent to Charles. Meanwhile, Elizabeth faces continued pressure to wed.


Lady Lola: Catherine you started me.
Queen Catherine: Why would my presence startle you? Oh because you married my lover?

Don Carlos: Your Highness, you are a vision.
Queen Elizabeth: And you are a charmer I see.

Queen Elizabeth: What can Spain offer my country?
Don Carlos: How about all the gold and silver of the new world?

Don Carlos: Many Queens might meet my needs. But only you, meet my desires.

Queen Elizabeth: I love you, Robert. This thing between us. It must end.

Queen Mary: I hope your wings are strong you vulture! You will be circling for quite some times.

Queen Catherine: You requested a five-course meal, I offer you seven!

Queen Elizabeth: Tell Don Carlos, I’m ready to accept his proposal.

King Francis: Remember. Being king’s a performance.

King Francis: Mary come to me. There may not be much time. Lay beside me.

King Francis: All that’s left now, is for me to enjoy my final hours.

King Francis: I love you, and I thank God for the time we’ve had.

Queen Elizabeth: It is a fact of our time. A man rules his wife. Even if his wife is a Queen.

Queen Elizabeth: And it will be the challenge of my life, not to kill her.

Sebastian: What’s the cost of a king’s life Charles? Your life? Yours?
Queen Mary: If the price is my life, I will give it! Bring him back!
Delphine: Are you certain?
Queen Mary: Yes I am. Go do it now, do it! Please hurry.


When Narcisse and Lola walk away from Catherine, she is no longer behind them in the next shot.
