A Grain Of Deception
"Tell your son to come to court. Or I will have him dragged here. On his knees."
Queen Elizabeth


Mary Vows to Avenge Lola’s Death
Queen Mary, unsure who to trust, tests her brother James to ensure his loyalty after hearing of his meeting with John Knox. Queen Elizabeth agrees to help Lord Darnley, in an attempt to sabotage the powerful suitor’s relationship with Mary.


Queen Elizabeth: Tell your son to come to court. Or I will have him dragged here. On his knees.

Queen Catherine: Well surely you don’t blame me.
Queen Leeza: All I know is the Prince of Spain come to France whole. And when he left he had an enormous piece of wood sticking out of his skull.
Queen Catherine: That is not true! We had our finest surgeon remove.

Princess Claude: You don’t want me to marry Martel either?
Queen Catherine: I had his father killed, do you think I want him rising in station?!

Queen Catherine: It’s fine. A daughter joining her mother for an evening stroll is hardly a crime.
Princess Claude: No, but murder is!

Queen Catherine: The tears might be a bit much.
Princess Claude: The tears are real!
