The latest episode of “Reign” Season 2, Episode 17 “Tempting Fate” brought in a few fate twists that might just doom the lives of our favorite royals. Read below for the full recap.

The episode kicked off with Ridley, Mary’s agent, getting killed off by an anonymous man. That being said, this man now had Mary’s letters, which contains information on her plans to move back to Scotland with Conde. Completely unaware of what has happened to her agent, Mary was focusing on other things particularly meeting with her lover, Conde at the Chapel.

Meanwhile, Bash left Kenna to do his duty to the king. Their marriage is certainly on the rocks. However, there is still a glimmer of hope for these two because Bash controlled the urge to have their marriage annulled because he’s still looking out for Kenna.

Catherine, on the other hand, has figured out that Mary is having an affair and confronted Francis about it. Francis incessantly lies about it to protect Mary and even warned Mary that regarding Catherine’s vengeance.

Claude was still tailing Narcisse, but Narcisse doesn’t want to have sex with her. Narcisse told Catherine about this but Catherine acted nonchalant in front of him. It was after she asked Leith to be Claude’s new bodyguard and keep her daughter spiritual and passionate. We are confident that Leith isn’t going to try anything with Claude because he’s in love with Greer.

Conde is determined to pursue his plans with Mary even though England is waiting for him. Mary found out that her hired detective was killed. Now someone has her letters, she freaked out while Conde devised a plan using his English contact. Lola, on the other hand, reassured Mary that she can still trust her. Mary set off to arrest Conde’s English contact and they went for Elizabeth’s contact next to get information. After everything that has happened, Mary told Conde that she still sees her future with him and she asked Conde to choose between her and Elizabeth. Of course, Conde chose Mary and they had sex.

Bash was caught and got beaten up but he was healed by the Woman in White. And as for the mysterious murdered of Ridley during the first scene, it turns out that it was actually Narcisse’s contact and he handed Mary’s letters to Catherine. It turns out that the reason Catherine wants this is not to ruin Mary’s reputation but to inform her son about this. When she did, she didn’t get to finish because her son suddenly collapsed and now she thinks Nostradamus’ vision is coming true.
