Une jeune femme est enchaînée aux murs d'une grotte dans les bois. La jeune femme est terrifiée alors qu'une créature arrive dans la grotte. Olivia se réveille dans la chambre de Nostradamus qui entre avec de la nourriture et lui demande si elle a de nouveau des cauchemars. Elle répond qu'elle n'arrivera jamais à se débarrasser de ses rêves de" l'obscurité".

Nostradamus dit que quand le corps subit un traumatisme il est difficile pour l'esprit de le laisser partir et il la supplie de ne pas laisser son esprit faire n'importe quoi, elle est prête à réintégrer la société. Il remarque que l'une des plaies d'Olivia est infectée et il trouve ce qui ressemble à une dent à l'intérieur.

Pendant ce temps, le roi Henri est assis à son bureau avec le marquis de Voe en face de lui. Ils discutent d'une affaire impliquant le marquis qui ne plie pas à son autorité. Le roi est très distrait, et soudain, accuse le marquis de ne pas écouter. Henri dit que l'une des principales sources de sa fureur c'est des gens qui refusent d'écouter leur roi. Le roi ordonne alors à ses gardes de tenir le marquis. Il prend une bougie et verse la cire brûlante dans les oreilles du marquis. Catherine arrive et demande à son mari ce qu'il fait au marquis. Quand Henri dit qu'il lui donne une leçon, elle le supplie de ne pas le faire de cette façon parce que le marquis est un noble.

Henri se dirige vers sa reine en disant qu'il a entendu qu’elle a annulé la célébration "reine d'un jour". Elle lui dit que c'est seulement une fête. Mais lui il sait qu'elle essaie de le cacher à la cour et l'accuse de tenter de l'empoisonner. La Reine assure à son mari qu'elle ne le fait pas mais qu'elle est profondément préoccupée par lui. Elle pense qu'il est vraiment malade et que ça pourrait nuire à lui-même ou à la France. Henri dit qu'il a simplement des maux de tête qui vont et viennent et que son esprit est plus fort qu'auparavant. Cependant la "reine d'un jour" est sa fête favorite de l'année et il a l’intention de la célébrer comme d'habitude.

Les serviteurs du château se bousculent dans la salle du trône pour le concours. Marie ne se souvient pas de cette tradition d'un serviteur qui devient reine d'un jour. D’après François c’est parce qu'ils étaient enfants sa mère leur a caché cette tradition. Son père a tendance à accueillir la reine d'un jour dans son lit. La reine d'un jour porte la couronne de sa mère et de beaux vêtements durant cette journée. Mais à l'aube, elle doit redevenir une servante. C'est une tradition que François préfère éviter surtout quand Diane de Poitiers est à la cour, à regarder son père jongler entre sa mère, une maîtresse, et la reine d'un jour. Sébastien et lui partent toujours conduit à la chasse ce jour-là. Pour Marie ce concours est une distraction bienvenue car c'est la première fois depuis des semaines que personne ne va la harceler à propos d'un héritier, François dit qu'il va peut-être la harceler et l'embrasse. Puis Lady Kenna se lève et dit à Marie que Lord Julian, le un prétendant potentiel de Greer, est arrivé.

Dans la salle du trône il y a un gâteau géant et des tranches sont distribuées parmi les serviteurs excités qui se sont rassemblés pour le concours. Greer est avec son nouveau fiancé Lord Julian et discutent du concours tandis que Marie, Lola, et Kenna l'admirent à travers la pièce. Greer le présente, et ils parlent de la famille de Lord Julian. Marie donne ensuite joyeusement sa bénédiction sur leur engagement. Leith qui distribuait le gâteau surprend la conversation et parle avec Lord Castleroy qui semble heureux de l'avoir comme nouvel apprenti dans le commerce des épices. Marie emmène une Lola enceinte de côté et lui dit qu'elle doit trouver un prétendant. Lola désespère car on verra bientôt son ventre rond mais Marie lui assure qu'elle va lui trouver un mari.

Nostradamus, en voyant le roi à la fête, commente à Catherine que son plan pour garder son mari hors de vue a échoué. Elle dit que personne ne sait à propos de la folie du roi sauf Kenna et Guyan, et elle leur a donné la motivation de garder le silence. Cependant il est impossible de dire ce que Henri va faire. La reine demande à Nostradamus s’il a trouvé une explication à son comportement. Mais il a testé la nourriture et la boisson d'Henri depuis 3 jours et n'a détecté aucun poison de toute nature. Catherine est horrifiée quand elle se rend compte que son mari est en effet fou et un roi fou donne des idées de chaos et de rébellion. Si leurs ennemis le découvrent alors ça pourrait causer des problèmes à la France. Nostradamus donne à la Reine un sédatif qui aidera Henri. Mais Henry a 7 dégustateurs et elle ne sait pas comment lui administrer. Ils sont interrompus par des cris d'une servante qui a trouvé la fève dans son gâteau. Henri se rapproche de la belle jeune fille qui se présente comme étant Pénélope. La reine Catherine se dirige vers eux, prend sa couronne et la met sur Pénélope, tout le monde applaudit.

Pendant ce temps Sébastien est revenu. Il demande à voir son père. Mais Henri ne semble pas trop heureux que son fils soit revenu d'exil cherchant sa faveur après avoir tué les gardes de François. Sébastien prétend qu'il était en légitime défense et tente de lui dire que le danger dans les bois est la vraie raison de son retour. Henri ordonne à ce qu'on le mette au donjon. François et Marie voient Sébastien être traîné et sont choqués de son retour. François dit que Sébastien avait une chance d'être libre et il ne l'a pas prise, il est un menteur et un meurtrier, et il sait la vraie raison du retour de son frère. Il avertit sa femme de ne pas l'approcher.

Plus tard dans les donjons Marie va voir Sébastien, enchaîné aux murs. Elle lui dit qu'elle a soudoyé son geôlier et un marchand pour l'emmener à la frontière espagnole. Elle lui demande de ne jamais revenir. Sébastien refuse et Marie demande ce qui ne va pas avec lui car il y a beaucoup de personnes qui veulent sa mort. Sébastien dit que François est une de ces personnes. Marie rétorque que son mari n'a pas essayé de le tuer. Sébastien dit que Marie serait plus heureuse sans lui si elle l'avait épousé et non François mais elle lui indique qu'il n'y a rien entre eux. Sébastien admet alors qu'il est de retour parce qu'il a rencontré une fille qu'il dans les bois et veut que Marie l'écoute.

Plus tard ce jour-là la reine Catherine apporte une Pénélope habillée dans ses chambres et explique les détails d'être une Reine. Catherine met un collier sur Pénélope. Elle indique qu'elle aimerait qu'elle soit la première reine à long terme. Et si elle se révèle digne de confiance alors elles peuvent être des amies. Catherine dit que si Pénélope a maintenu sa vertu alors elle aura une rencontre spéciale avec le roi. Catherine semble parler d'une expérience personnelle, elle dit que le roi a un appétit sexuel. Elle dit qu'elle peut l'aider et elle lui donne le sédatif qu'elle a reçu de Nostradamus en lui disant que c'est un "aphrodisiaque" qui l'aidera à faire plaisir à Henri.

En bas, dans les cachots François arrive et voit Marie et Sébastien sortant de la cellule et il n'est pas content. Marie défend Sébastien et dit qu'il n'est pas venu pour elle. Mais François ne croit pas ce que dit son frère. François l'interroge sur la menace dans les bois et Sébastien parle des sacrifices ainsi que des païens qui sont dangereux et qui ont menacé Marie. Ils sont au service d'une créature qu'ils appellent l'obscurité. Bien que Sébastien l'ait vu de ses propres yeux, François ne le croit toujours pas lui, disant qu'il est aussi ignorant que les païens, et demande à Marie de les laisser. Toutefois Sébastien pense que si François ne le croit pas alors peut-être qu'il croira Olivia.

Dans la chambre de Greer, Leith va la voir pour lui dire adieu. Greer arrête Leith qui est train de lui dire qu'il l'aime et il demande si elle est fiancée à un homme qu'elle connaît à peine parce qu'il est riche et avec un titre ou parce qu'elle l'aime. Greer souligne qu'il est bon pour elle aussi et semble être tout ce qu'elle a toujours voulu, sauf qu'il n'est pas Leith. Elle l'embrasse et tout à coup la porte s'ouvre. Lord Julian demande immédiatement ce qui se passe. Leith dit alors à Lord Julian que Greer n'a commis aucune faute et qu'il lui a volé un baiser. Greer tente de le faire taire, mais les gardes de Lord Julian l'emmènent. Greer pleure. Lord Julian rompt leurs fiançailles en disant qu'il ne peut pas avoir des ragots comme ceci entourant sa famille. Greer plaide qu'elle va être ruinée s’il ne l'épouse pas. Julian part laissant Greer en larmes.

Marie, François, et Sébastien vont voir Olivia dans les chambres de Nostradamus pour savoir ce qui lui est arrivé dans les bois. Olivia raconte qu'elle s'est échappée à travers les tunnels pendant le siège du château. Elle a été trouvée par les hérétiques. Sébastien demande si maintenant François le croit. Marie et François demandent à Olivia si elle peut revenir sur ses pas à la grotte. Mais elle ne peut pas. Tout ce qu'elle se souvient c'est une prairie bordée de sapins. François dit qu'il va rassembler ses hommes et partir avec Sébastien dans les bois. Cependant ce dernier est réticent. En effet la dernière fois qu'il était avec les hommes de François ils ont essayé de le tuer. Pour la dernière fois François insiste pour dire qu'il n'a pas donné cet ordre. Olivia parle ensuite en disant qu'ils ne peuvent pas juste tuer cette "créature", c'est une créature de l'enfer pas un humain. Mais alors Nostradamus entre dans la pièce et déclare que cette créature n'est en effet un homme par la dent qu'il a trouvé dans la blessure d'Olivia.

Lola et Kenna consolent Greer, dévastée et honteuse de ses actions. Greer semble toutefois plus bouleversée sur la peine possible de Leith et avoue qu'elle l'aime. Kenna lui dit qu'elle ne peut pas aimer un serviteur. Greer pleure alors plus elle est préoccupée par les ragots qui pourraient ruiner sa famille. Marie entre dans la pièce et entend Greer dire qu'elle n'a pas d'avenir et a honte, mais Marie lui dit de ne pas l'être.

Dans la chambre d'Henri, il demande à Marie pourquoi la reine d'Ecosse est si préoccupée par le sort d'un garçon de cuisine. Marie dit que Leith a sauvé de nombreuses vies lors du siège et que pour ça, sa peine devrait être réduite. Henri dit que ce garçon de cuisine semble avoir des amis très haut placés parce qu'elle n'est pas la première à plaider en son nom. Le Seigneur Castleroy l'a fait et Leith va partir pour le service militaire. Pénélope les interrompt. Henri la salue joyeusement, enlève alors sa ceinture et le jette de côté. Marie croit que c'est son signal pour partir, mais Henry l'arrête et l'invite à rester. Il lui demande de donner des conseils à Pénélope maintenant qu'elle est mariée à François et a consommé sa relation. Marie est choquée, elle demande s’il est vraiment sérieux. Marie remarque que ce comportement est anormal pour le roi et demande sa grâce, Henri répond qu'il est oint par Dieu et Marie et tous les autres membres de la royauté sont sous son autorité. Marie dit à Henri qu'elle sait de quoi il parle et demande à emprunter Pénélope pour l’habiller. Toutefois Pénélope refuse et décide de rester avec Henri.

Marie va dans les chambres de Lola, demandant pourquoi elle n'est pas prête pour la fête. Lola dit qu’elle ne peut pas rentrer dans sa robe. Marie a une solution pour Lola : épouser Lord Julian, et elle lui dit que c’était l'idée de Greer. Lola dit qu'il n'est pas juste que Greer soit puni alors qu'elle est récompensée. Mais Marie lui dit qu'elle a besoin de cet arrangement car son mariage avec François est menacé de tous les côtés : le retour de Sébastien a soulevé la jalousie et la méfiance et maintenant Lola enceinte de l'enfant de son mari. Lola la calme en lui disant qu'elle comprend et ne veut pas être une menace pour son bonheur avec François. Elle fera de son mieux pour épouser Lord Julian rapidement.

Dans les bois François et Sébastien marchent dans la neige quand ils repèrent des empreintes qui conduisent à une plaque de neige. Mais quand François va enquêter il voit quelque chose dans la neige. Il se rend à un endroit où la glace est trop mince et tombe. Sébastien appelle son frère mais le trou de glace se referme. Il essaie de briser la glace. Il brise enfin la glace avec son épée sort François de l’eau. Malheureusement il est bleu et ne respire pas.

Retour à la cour française, Henri se trouve sur son trône avec sa femme, mais sans Pénélope. Kenna et Greer entrent. Henri se dirige vers elles et félicite Greer sur sa rencontre avec Leith car c'est la chose la plus intéressante qu'il a entendu sur elle. Kenna prend sa défense lui reprochant d'avoir dit une chose terrible. Mais Henri dit qu'elle devrait être reconnaissante que les gens arrêtent de parler d'elle. Kenna rejoint Marie et appelle Henri " un monstre qui est impitoyable et cruel,". Marie remercie Greer pour ce qu'elle a fait pour Lola. Greer pense qu'elle a laissé passer sa chance, mais Mary n'est pas sûre en voyant Lord Castleroy arriver.

Greer et Castleroy ont une conversation. Elle le remercie d'avoir fait en sorte que Leith soit dans l'armée. Ill remarque qu'il ne l'a pas fait pour Leith mais pour elle. Greer est plus confuse quant à la raison pour laquelle cet homme cherche sa faveur, malgré les rumeurs qui l'entourent. Lord Castleroy lui dit qu'elle a un bon cœur et il est trop riche pour s'occuper de ce que les gens disent. Ce dont il se soucie c'est Greer. Il sait qu'il n'est pas l'homme de ses rêves et qu'un mariage ferait taire toutes les rumeurs. Greer répond qu'elle voit sa gentillesse. Nostradamus entre et Olivia vient vers lui et elle dit qu'il était temps pour elle de rejoindre la société. Olivia lui demande de danser avec elle mais il refuse.

François est vivant et assis près de la cheminée en essayant de se réchauffer. Sébastien vient pour vérifier qu'il va bien. François dit qu'il se sent chanceux d'être vivant. Si Sébastien ne lui avait pas sauvé la vie il aurait pu mourir sous la glace. François demande si cela était raisonnable car Sébastien croit qu'il a tenté de le faire tuer alors il se demande pourquoi il a risqué sa vie pour lui. Sébastien répond simplement : "Tu es mon frère". François est heureux d'entendre cela et demande si Marie sait qu'ils sont de retour. Sébastien l’affirme. Les gardes ont trouvé la grotte dans les bois couverts de sang mais aucun signe de cette créature. Cependant François jure de le trouver pour Rowan et toutes ses victimes. Il dit à Sébastien qu'il mérite une vie loin de la cour. Sébastien aimerait bien. François lui assure qu'ils seront toujours frères.

Henri arrive soudainement dans la salle un peu en colère que Sébastien ne soit plus dans le donjon et lui demande pourquoi il a été libéré. François répond qu'il avait besoin de son aide. Henri dit cependant que cette question doit être réglée une fois pour toutes. François demande à son père s’il a ordonné aux gardes de tuer Sébastien. Henri réplique que des sacrifices doivent être faits. François demande à son père s'il a perdu la tête. Henri dit que Sébastien est une menace pour tout ce qu'il veut : l'Angleterre, l'Ecosse, et une France paisible. Soudain il tire son épée comme s’il allait tuer son propre fils. Mais François l'arrête en disant que Sébastien part mais Henri ne le croit pas. Henry veut toujours tuer Sébastien. Alors François se met entre l'épée et son frère et dit à son père que Sébastien est un ami pour le royaume, et son fils, et celui qui a sauvé la vie de son héritier. Leur père baisse son épée, dit qu'il est heureux de voir que ses fils s'entendent à nouveau.

Plus tard cette nuit-là, Olivia rejoint Nostradamus sur un balcon et les deux ont un moment de tendresse où Nostradamus raconte que la dernière personne avec qui il a dansé était sa femme. Il n'a pas pu sauver sa famille de la peste. Olivia offre sa sympathie et elle se rend compte que la tragédie de sa famille est la raison pour laquelle il se consacre à son travail. Ils partagent un baiser. Ailleurs sur un autre balcon Lola, et Greer regardent Leith partir pour l'armée.

Catherine entre dans les chambres de son mari pour trouver Pénélope. Elle demande où Henri est et si la tâche qu'elle lui a donnée a été faite. Pénélope lui montre la bouteille vide et la reine lui dit qu'elle est impressionnée quand Henri entre dans la salle en criant : "Ah, ma belle reine !" Catherine pensant qu'il parle d'elle, va vers lui, mais il la pousse et embrasse Pénélope. Henri dit alors que Pénélope l'a informé de l'ordre de Catherine de verser le flacon dans son vin et que la reine l'a menacée. Catherine dit qu'elle n'a pas fait une telle chose. Henri lui demande si elle appelle sa "reine" de menteuse ? Catherine pense que cela est absurde car Pénélope est une servante et elle croit qu'elle profite de son mari. Henri rétorque qu'il ne s'est jamais senti aussi bien et qu'il est amoureux de sa "Reine Pénélope". Catherine crie que Pénélope n’est pas reine et qu’elle n'a pas gagné le concours mais a couché avec le chef pâtissier afin d'obtenir la fève.

La Reine exige alors que Pénélope lui rendre sa couronne. Cependant, avant de Catherine puisse poser un doigt dessus Henri saisit son poignet et la menace de la jeter aux lions. La Reine horrifiée trébuche un peu et sa vision devient floue. Henri voulait lui donner une leçon et part avec Pénélope. Catherine trébuche et voit Marie qui lui demande si elle va bien. Catherine peut à peine tenir debout. À l'horreur de Marie, sa belle-mère s'effondre inconsciente dans ses bras. Marie ente de la réveiller, mais ne peut pas et elle hurle.

Dans les appartements de François, Marie arrive et il demande comment va sa mère. Marie lui dit que Nostradamus la traite elle est dans un sommeil. François veut aller parler à son père. Mais Marie l'arrête en disant que son père ne va pas bien et François est conscient de ça. Sébastien entre alors et François demande si leur père lui a pardonné ... Sébastien lui dit pas exactement, mais Henri a une solution. Ils sont tous deux invités à venir immédiatement sous peine de mort.

Dans la salle du trône un prêtre est debout devant un couple préparation les vœux de mariage. Le couple est Kenna et Sébastien. François, Marie, Greer, Lola et Nostradamus avec Catherine regardent ce mariage. Henri les oblige à se marier et Kenna lui rappelle qu'il lui a promis un mari avec un titre. Kenna pleure, mais Henri leur dit de se taire et de dire les mots. Quand elle proteste Henri prend son épée et ordonne qu'ils disent les mots. Sébastien dit alors ses vœux de mariage à Kenna.

Sébastien jeune marié, se dirige vers un groupe de gardes les commandants de rechercher dans les bois toute personne païenne trouvée. Un gardien lui répond qu'il ne prend pas les ordres des bâtards, mais Sébastien utilise son nouveau titre. Marie vient le voir et demande s’il va bien. Sébastien dit qu'il est marié à quelqu'un qu'il n'aime pas et il doit être à la cour et regarder son amour être avec quelqu'un d'autre pour le reste de sa vie. Marie pensait que les sentiments de Sébastien avaient disparu, mais il admet qu'il a menti et que Marie était bien la raison de son retour à la cour.

Olivia subconsiously recalls her time in captivity and her escape from the creature in the woods. She jolts awake after this disturbing dream.

NOSTRADAMUS: The nightmares again?

OLIVIA: What I was endured when I was captive in that cave will always be a part of me. The darkness..

NOSTRADAMUS: Can't reach you anymore. When the body endures a trauma, it's hard for the mind to let go. Don't let your mind sabotage you. You're ready to rejoin society.

Nostradamus tries to comfort her, but she pulls away when he touches her lightly on her back.

NOSTRADAMUS: I'm sorry

OLIVIA: No. It's not you. It hurts -- my back.

NOSTRADAMUS: May I?

Nostradamus takes a look at her back, seeing a gaping wound.

OLIVIA: What is it?

NOSTRADAMUS: I thought all your wounds were healing, but this one's become infected. I need to drain it.Olivia lays flat on her stomach whle Nostradamus takes a scapel to the wound.)

NOSTRADAMUS: There. The wound should heal. Wait..

Suddenly, Nostradamus notes something is amiss.

NOSTRADAMUS: There's something inside.

Nostradamus picks up a pair of plyers.

NOSTRADAMUS: Brace yourself, Olivia

A few moments later, he pulls a claw out of Olivia's wound.

 


IN THE THRONE ROOM

MAN: I ask that you send horses to Diane to demonstrate your power and my authority.

Henry says nothing as he contemplates the proposition.

MAN: Your Majesty?

KING HENRY: When you last presented me with your greviences, what did I say?

MAN: But Your Majesty, the baron*?* disrespected...

KING HENRY: Clearly you do not listen. Because I ordered you to return home and bend the baron to your authority on your own power! This has been the source of my fury. People, who refuse to listen to their King. Or, are your ears full of wax?

KING HENRY: Hold him down.

The King's guards hold him down as Henry takes a lit candle and blows it out.

MAN: Please your majesty! I beg you!

Henry then pours hot wax jfrom the candle into his ear. The Queen hears his screams and runs in to find out what's going on.

QUEEN CATHERINE: Henry! What are you doing?

KING HENRY: Teaching Malarky a lesson.

QUEEN CATHERINE: Not like this. He's a nobel man!

KING HENRY (to the guards): Release him.

KING HENRY (to the Queen): I uderstand you cancelled the Queen of the bean celebration?

QUEEN CATHERINE: We're talking about a party?

KING HENRY: I know what you're trying to do. You're trying to hide me from my own court. Perhaps you're trying to poison me as well.

QUEEN CATHERINE: I'm not trying to poison you, Henry. I'm concerned. What's wrong with you? It wasn't any posion I delivered, I swear to you. But, I fear you could do harm to yourself; to France

KING HENRY: I have headaches. They come and go, but my mind is sharper than its ever been before. ANd the Queen of he bean is nearly my facorite event of the year. It will proceed as usual.

 

ELSEWHERE IN THE CASTLE

MARY: So any servant can become the Queen for the day? I don' remember this tradition.

FRANCIS: That was because we were children. I think my mother hid it from us for a while. My father welcomes the temporary Queen in his own way.

MARY: In his bed?

FRANCIS: If the girl that finds the bean in a slice of cake happens to be pretty, she wears my mother's crown; the finest clothes and spends the day ordering servants around. By dawn, she has a hundred buckets of gifts, but she's a servant girl once more.

MARY: A true fairy tale ending.

FRANCIS: It's a traditional I always hope to avoid. Especially when Diane de was here. To watch my father jugging a mistress, my mother and the bean Queen.. Bash and I always fled for a hunt.

MARY: It's all right to miss him even though he angered you. Well, at least the bean gives them something new to gossip about. It's the first time in weeks no one's pestered me about giving you heirs.

FRANCIS: Perhaps I should pester you then?

While they kiss, Kenna comes up and chats with them.

KENNA: Mary, Greer's ready to present him to you now.

FRANCIS: Who?

MARY: Lord Julian; Greer's fiance.


IN THE THRONE ROOM

GREER: Such a gorgeous cake and they're not even going to eat it.

JULIAN: We should send the loser a consolaton prize. What do you think?

KENNA: He arrived two days ago. Isn't he adorable?

LOLA: They've had some talks and Greer said he's quite nice.

KENNA: and quite rich. Why can't the King find me a husband like that?

LOLA: We've been here a year, yet we're rotting on a vine.

GREER: Lord Julian, may I introduce you to Her Majesty, Mary; Queen of Scots. And her ladies, Lola and Kenna.

Lord Julian bows to Mary.

JULIAN: Your Majesty, it is an honor.

MARY: Lord Julian, it's such a pleasure to finally meet you. I hear that your family's from Hungary.

JULIAN: Yes. My parent's know Greers father through distant a distant cousin. We corresponded and the rest is history.I hope you'll find it in your heart to bless this engagement.

MARY: If this is what your father wishes, and you, of course

GREER: It is.Very much.

MARY: Well then, you're engaged. Enjoy your lives together

LOLA: I'm so happy for you Greer.

KENNA: He's certainly a step up from Castleroy.

 

ELSEWHERE

LEITH: Lord Castleroy, can I get you anything?

LORD CASTLEROY: No need. You're busy. Just think, tomorrow, you'll be my apprentence in the spice trade, leaving all this behind.

Castleroy sees that Leith is eyeing Greer from another part of the room.

LORD CASTLEROY: Will you miss it?

LEITH: Ug. Uh. I'm very grateful, Sir.

Mary pulls Lola aside.

MARY: Lola, I have some bad news. The suitor from *?* has been delayed for five weeks.

LOLA: I'm going to start to show any day now.

MARY: Lola, I promised you I'd find you a husband and I will. Just give me another week, maybe two.

 

ELSEWHERE

NOSTRADAMUS: I see your plan to keep the king out of sight has failed. Who else knows of his madness?

QUEEN CATHERINE: Only Kenna.. and a nobelman and I've gievn them both motivation to keep quiet. There's no telling what Henry will do next. Have you found any explanation for this?

NOSTRADAMUS: I've checked his food and wine for poision for three days straight. There's no trace of any poison. -- at least none that I recognize.

QUEEN CATHERINE: Then he is mad. And a mad King incites chaos and rebellion. If our enemies find outl..

NOSTRADAMUS: Your Majesty.

He pulls out a vial of some substance.

QUEEN CATHERINE: What's this?

NOSTRADAMUS: A sedative that induces a coma. A deep sleep I can interrupt with my own design.

QUEEN CATHERINE: It wll be difficult. He has seven tasters inspecting ever manner of delievery. We have to find a way to get it past them -- a Trojan horse.

Suddenly, someone screams, the girl who has found the bean.

KING HENRY: And what is your name?

PENELOPE: Uh. Penelope, from the kitchen.

KING HENRY: Well, you're very prety.

QUEEN CATHERINE: Penelope, I crown you Queen of the Beam.

Penelope is hoisted onto a charriot and is carried out of the room.

QUEEN CATHERINE: Ask and ye shall receive


ELSEWHERE

BASH: I need to speak with the king.

The King's men draw their swords and point them at Bash.

GUARD: It's the bastard!

BASH: I surrender to the King's mercy

KING HENRY: Bash

BASH: Father, I need to speak with you

KING HENRY: You return from exile, seeking favor. Aftery ou killed your brothers guards?

BASH: It was self defense.

KING HENRY: Take him to the dungeon

BASH: There's a threat in the woods. That's why I've returned. Father, father, you must listen to me. I mean you no harm, but there are people who are really beng harmed.

MARY: I can't believe he came back. What was he thinking?

FRANCIS: I've given him every chance to be free and here he is. I'm done helping him.

MARY: Francis, he's your brother.

FRANCIS: He's a liar and a murderer. We both know why he came back. Don't give him another chance to get close to you.

 

After Bash's arrest, Mary goes to confront him about his return to the castle and court. The Kng's men had him chained up in the dungeon.

MARY: We don't have much time, so listen carefully. I've bribed your jailor. a merchant's wagon will take you to the Spanish border. If you value your life, you will do as I say and will never return.

BASH: I'm not ready to go to Spain.

MARY: Bash, what is wrong with you?! You never should have returned here. You have to leave. There are too many in the castle who want you dead.

BASH: You mean Francis?

MARY: He did not try to have you killed. Although he could. You stir up a jealousy and bitterness in him that scare me. He has this look in his eyes.. It's like I don't know him. It's almost as if he knows...

BASH: That you would've been happy without him if you married me instead?

MARY: There is nothing between you and I except for my concern for you.

BASH: Then we've arrived at the same spot. I'm here on behalf of another; a girl I met in the woods.

Mary becomes clearly jealous over this comment.

MARY: Well, goody for you for your speedy recovery.

Bash notes this and he too becomes angry.

BASH: DON'T. Not until you hear what happened to her.


IN THE QUEEN'S CHAMBERS

The Queen has pulled Penelope - the Queen of the Bean - inside her bed chambers, hoping that she will help take part in the Queen's plan to incapacitate the King.

QUEEN CATHERINE: Queen Penelope; each year, a girl is chosen..

The Queen escorts Penelope to a chair.

QUEEN CATHERINE: And for a brief moment, she glimpses the heavens of royalty. Ah. It's the greatest night of her life.

Around Penelope's neck, the Queen places a glorious diamond necklace.

QUEEN CATHERINE: But when the dawn comes, she must fall back to Earth. That must be a brutal fall.

Instead of putting the necklace on her, she pulls it off and puts it back among her own posessions.

PENELOPE: Oh. It's okay. This is so much more than I ever dreamed of.

QUEEN CATHERINE: But it's only one day and I would like you to be the first Queen of the Bean in history to think long-term

The Queen picks out another necklace and places it on her.

QUEEN CATHERINE: So, if you prove yourself trustworthy, we can be friends. And unlike Henry, I look after my friends every day of the year. Not just this one.

Penelope looks very excited about the possibility.

QUEEN CATHERINE: So, tell me Queen Penelope. Have you maintained your virtue?

PENELOPE: Of course I have.

QUEEN CATHERINE: Because, as you may know, when pretty girls win 'Queen of the Bean,' they sometimes.. get.. special experience with the King.

PENELOPE: Oh?

QUEEN CATHERINE: I must warn you that the King's appretite in his bed chambers can be quite... rough. He has the appetite of a lion and the stanima of a horse; a horse that proceeds at a steady, punishing, trot. It can be... a lengthy.. experience.

PENELOPE: Wow. How lengthy?

QUEEN CATHERINE: It can feel like hours. Sometimes it is, but if we are to be friends, I can help you.

The Queen goes to her box of horrors and fishes something out of it; a vial.

QUEEN CATHERINE: This is an aphrodisiac. It'll help the King... gallop... more quickly to the finish. Pour the contents of this in his wine.

The Queen hands Penelope the small bottle.

QUEEN CATHERINE: Get him to drink it. It'll thrill him; and satisy him; and you'll be onto more gowns and jewels and feasts.


DOWN IN THE DUNGEON

Francis storms into the dungeons to find Mary and confront Bash. He finds them walking together, with Bash having been removed of his chains.

FRANCIS: I came down here because I was worried about you, but here I find you with my wife. Again! Shall I feign surprise?

MARY: It's not what it looks like. He didn't come for me.

FRANCIS: Even you can't believe that.

BASH: I'm back for the castle's resources... it's armed men and horses. To seek out and destroy a threat in the woods. And then I will leave, I promise.

FRANCIS: What threat?

BASH: You've seen the sacrafices in the blood wood. These pagan's endanger every man, woman and child in the realm. They threatened your own wife! And they do it all in service of a monster they csll "The Darkness."

MARY: I know how it sounds.

FRANCIS: You sound as ignorant as those Pagans. A monster in the woods?

BASH: I saw it in the shadows myself. It took a girl - a girl I cared for. Her name was Rowan and now she's certainly dead. However badly you want me gone, I promise, I want it a thousand times more, but I'm not leaving until the woods are safe.

Francis clearly doesn't believe him.

FRANCIS: Mary, leave us please.

BASH: I know you don't believe me, but there's someone you will believe.

FRANCIS: And who is that?

BASH: The darkness has claimed countless victims. Only one survived. Your old flame, Olivia D'Amencourt. She's here in this castle right now.

Francis turns back at looks at Mary, who is equally shocked.


IN GREER'S CHAMBERS

Greer sits in her chambers and looks incredibly gloomy, until Leith busts in to see her.

GREER: Leith, what are you doing here? We said our goodbyes.

LEITH: I had to see you just once more. Look, I wanted to tell you.

Greer interrupts him.

GREER: No. Don't.

LEITH: Why? Because you're engaged to another man, who you barely know?

GREER: That's not at all unusual for someone like me.

LEITH: Because you're highborn? And he's rich and titled? And very kind to the servants?

GREER: And to me. He seems.. everything I ever wanted. Except he's not you.

Greer and Leith embrace and kiss each other passionately. Suddenly, a servant and several people bust in through the door.

SERVANT: Excuse me, my lady.

Greer and Leith immediately stop kissing and recoil from the other. Lord Julian, who has a present in hand, then makes his presence known.

LORD JULIAN: Greer.

GREER: Lord Julian, I...

LORD JULIAN: Who are you?

LEITH: I-I I'm no one. I'm a servant. I-I fancied her and, and, she was kind, so I stole a kiss.

GREER: Leith, NO!

LEITH: No! This is not her fault! She asked me not to, but I was overcome. She's free of blame in this. My, my *?* were unwanted.

Lord Julian's guards grab ahold of Leith roughly.

LORD JULIAN: I don't want him harmed, but his household will have to know of this.

The guards lead Leith away and leave Greer and Julian alone.

LORD JULIAN: I was going to leave this in your room.

GREER: It wasn't his fault.

LORD JULIAN: Is that supposed to make it better?

GREER: I'm so sorry.

LORD JULIAN: I know these things happen, but they can't with my wife. I can't have this kind of gossip surrounding my family. I can't have this.

GREER: I'll be ruined if you don't marry me.

LORD JULIAN: I wish I could. I-I wish I were a better man, but I am not. I'm sorry.

Greer breaks down in tears as Julian leaves her chambers.

 

MARY: Olivia, we are so sorry.

FRANCIS: Everything you endured.. we thought, I thought, you escaped through the tunnels that night.

OLIVIA: I did, but I was found by those heretics -- fed to that monster.

Bash has been listening to Olivia recount her experience in the doorway. He comes in when she finshes talking.

BASH: Do you believe me now? This creature is the cause of all the horrors in those woods. If you are to protect your realm from these devils, you must kill the monster they serve.

FRANCIS: I don't believe in monsters. I never have, but I do believe in fear and whoever this darkness is, the Pagans fear him enough to terrorize and slaughter my people.

MARY: Olivia, do you think you could retrace your steps to lead us back to the cave?

OLIVIA: No. All I remember is a meadow lined with fern trees, hugged by a curving field of snow.

BASH: I remember a meadow with some ferns near where we found her.

FRANCIS: I'll gather my guards.

BASH: You'll forgive me, but the last time I went with your men, they tried to kill me.

FRANCIS: I gave no such order. And we could confirm that if you hadn't slaughtered them.

MARY: Francis..

FRANCIS: This time, I'm going with you. We'll find that cave and kill whatever lies within. And then I am personally putting you on the next boat to Spain.

Bash looks to Mary and nods at her. She returns the sentiment.

BASH: Then we're agreed?

OLIVIA: You can't just kill it. This isn't just some outlaw hiding in the trees. The darkness is a creature from hell. It's not human!

NOSTRADAMUS: He is human. I assure you. I found this...

Nostradamus holds up the claw-like tooth he dug from Olivia's back.

NOSTRADAMUS: ... embedded in Olivia's wound. It looked like the fang of some wild beast, but the root of this tooth is like yours and mine. This fang is a human tooth filed down into a sharp point.

MARY: Human? But why would a man go to such lengths?

NOSTRADAMUS: Motivation (*?*), perhaps, to better feed on humans? But I assure you, this darkness is only a man.

MARY: Then go and kill him. but remember who the real enemy is.


IN GREER'S CHAMBERS

After being caught kissing Leith, Greer cries hysterically while the rest of her ladies try to comfort her, a task that is futile.

GREER: Do you know what happens to servants like Leith? They say he'll get the lash until his back is split open and he can no longer stand. He'll spend years in that cell. I love him.

KENNA: You can't love a servant, you can't! Not that what I did was much better.

But it is. Mistresses of the King aren't often reverred, but, but this... My family will fall into ruin for what I've done. I'll never be able to face them again.

LOLA: Oh. It's not that dire yet.

GREER: The gossip is already spreading. These rumors will follow me everywhere

From the doorway, Mary overhears their conversation and comes in.

GREER: I have no future.

MARY: Greer, don't say that. Never say that!

GREER: Mary.. so you've heard. I'm so ashamed.

MARY: Please don't be.

GREER: Look at us.. Look where our hearts have led us. We've brought you shame. Well, all but Lola,

Lola and Mary both look over at each other, knowing the truth about Lola's pregnancy.

LOLA: In truth, there's something you should know.


IN THE KING'S CHAMBERS

Mary goes to speak with Henry in hopes that Leith will be spared a brutal beating.

KING HENRY: Why is the Queen of Scotland so concerned with the fate of a kitchen boy?

MARY: Leith saved many lives at the seige. In light of his bravery, I feel that his sentence should be reduced.

KING HENRY: This kitchen boy seems to have friends in high places. You're not the first to plead on his behalf. Lord Castleroy has arranged that. In lieu of prison, he's been conscripted for miltary service. He departs for training tomorrow.

Henry is distracted by the clanking of shoes coming from the hallway. He turns around and Penelope emerges.

KING HENRY: Ah. My Queen. What a vision.

He hands her a glass of wine.

KING HENRY: Isn't she lovely, Mary? yes, it takes a very special kind of woman to attract my eye and ignite my passion.

Henry starts taking off his belt.

MARY: I should go.

Mary turns to leave.

KING HENRY: No. No. No. Stay.

Henry grabs her by the arm to prevent her from leaving.

KING HENRY: Now that you've given your virtue to my son, perhaps you can show Penelope a thing or two about how to please a ruler. Go on. Pretend she's Francis. I'll watch.

The King sits down to enjoy the show, but Mary just looks bewildered.

MARY: You aren't serious?!

KING HENRY: Mhmm.

MARY: This isn't like you.. Are you feeling unwell, Your Grace?

KING HENRY: I'm annointed by God. You are as well. We are royals. What could ever be unwell with us?

Mary chooses her words very carefully.

MARY: I know exactly what you're talking about. May I borrow Penelope for a minute? I have some royal customs and clothes to share with her. Penelope, if you would?

Henry holds out his hand to Penelope, ushering her to stand beside him.

PENELOPE: I suppose the Queen will stay. I'm fine. Run along.

Mary walks to the door. Before she exits, she looks back one last time.

PENELOPE: Dear Henry. When we last talked, you spoke to me about bondage.

KING HENRY: You seem familiar with the practice.

PENELOPE: Servants talk. I hear you like it.

The King laughs in agreeance.

PENELOPE: It's to be expected. The King must have power and control. It's part of his job, but even the biggest of jobs can become so dull. Here.

Penelope grabs the King's hands and binds them with cloth.

PENELOPE: It's just you and me. I'll take control. I can give you the pleasure you (*?*).

KING HENRY: I have always been on the giving end.

PENELOPE: How tiring for you.

Penelope takes his bound hands and places them around her neck.

PENELOPE: Poor King Henry.

He starts kissing her.

PENELOPE: Get on the bed!

KING HENRY: What?

PENELOPE: Now.

KING HENRY: Oh. I like this.

He sits down at the foot of the bed, while Penelope gets down on her knees.

PENELOPE: Bad King. You won't speak again unless spoken to. Do you understand?

Penelope grabs a whip and hits it across her hand.


IN THE WOODS

Francis, Bash and the King's men ride off into the woods on horseback. They come to a clearing and Francis gets off his horse, demanding the men look for the creature.

FRANCIS: Split up and search the area. The cave must be closeby.

GUARD 1: Yes, My Lord.

GUARD 2: This way..

FRANCIS: Bash, you, come with me.

Bash walks over to him and Francis pulls out his sword.

FRANCIS: We're going from here.

GUARD 3: You didn't give me your weapon.

BASH: You're planning on having them kill me, brother?

FRANCIS (to Guard 3): you there, go with the others.

The guard leaves them be, causing Bash to simmer down.

FRANCIS: You have made so many enemies, why fixate on me? You reach for the throne and fail, nobels everywhere despise you. Maybe it's easier to make me the vllian? So you have a reason to hate me and an excuse to go after my wife.

BASH: Listen to you, you have Mary! And the crown; and all of France puckering its lips to kiss your ass and still you're threatened by a bastard in exile.

FRANCIS: I use to look up to you. You were the one person I could rely on, but I was wrong. You are a traitor and a (*?*).

Francis has his blade pointed at Bash's head.

BASH: Go ahead. Do it then. Kill me.

Francis sees a trail of footprints behind Bash.

BASH: Fresh tracks. We're not alone.

Francis hands his sword to Bash and they follow the trail/

 

IN THE THRONE ROOM

In the throne room, Queen Catherine overlooks a crowd, as she sits perched on her throne. Penelope, the Queen of the Bean, approaches her.

QUEEN CATHERINE: I didn't see Henry. Did you manage to fufill my request?

Penelope looks at her as if she doesn't know what Catherine is talking about.

QUEEN CATHERINE (lowering her voice to a mere whisper): The aphrodisiac?

PENELOPE: You needn't worry about that. He, uhh, doesn't need an aphrodisiac. The King goes a little bit mad sometimes, doesn't he? And uh, was it medicine?

QUEEN CATHERINE: You are a clever girl, aren't you?

PENELOPE: I'll see that it's done. I know how to handle him.

QUEEN CATHERINE: Oh? Do you..

Penelope sees a crowd of people entering the room.

PENELOPE: Oh. Guests.. Uh (pointing at the throne), would you mind?

QUEEN CATHERINE: Come again?

PENELOPE: My throne.

QUEEN CATHERINE: Of course. Enjoy it, my dear.

Catherine gets up and allows Penelope to sit down on it.

QUEEN CATHERINE (under her breath): You stupid kitchen whore.


IN MARY'S CHAMBERS

Lola sits in her room and waits for her to return.

MARY: Lola... The party is starting. Why aren't you ready? What's wrong?

LOLA: I can't fit in my dress. Mary, we'er out of time.

MARY: Lola, we said we would help each other and we already have.

LOLA: What do you mean?

MARY: Marry Lord Julian.

LOLA: What?

MARY: He came to France looking to make a good marriage. You offer him everything he is looking for.

LOLA: Looking for? What about Greer?

MARY: It was Greer's idea. She wants to help you move forward. Julian spurned her, althought she says he did it kindly.

LOLA: It's not fair. Greer's punished and scorned, while i'm rewarded.

MARY: Lola, I don't mean to sound blunt, or selfish, but I need this to work. My marriage is threatened from all sides. Bash's return has Francis posioned by jealousy and mistrust. We can never be happy while he's here and hee you're pregnant with my husband's child. And if Francis finds out...

LOLA: I understand and I never want to be a threat to your happiness. If you can help sway Lord Julian in my direction, I will do my very best to marry him. And quickly.

Relieved, Mary embraces Lola.


IN THE WOODS

Francis and Bash continue to follow the tracks that could have been left by the darkness. Suddenly, one of the horses with them goes completely insane.

BASH: It spooked him.

Bash takes off to check on the horse. Once he's over there, a high pitched noise blares, causing a flock of birds to flee the artea.

FRANCIS: What was that.?

BASH: I've head that noise before. It's the darkness! GUARDS

GUARD: My Lord!

One of the guards emerge.

BASH: Do you see anyone?

GUARD: Not for miles, my Lord.

BASH: Where are the rest of the guards?

GUARD: Searching for the cave.

FRANCIS: The footprints just stop.

BASH: What do you mean? How is that possible?

Francis notes somethng black laying in the snow.

FRANCIS: Wait. there's something here.

BASH: What is it?

When Francis gets close enough, he sees a human hand in the snow. Suddenly, the ground starts to shake beneath him.

FRANCIS: Stop! Don't come any closer.

In a moment's time, the ice gives way to his weight, plunging him into the chilly pond below.

BASH: Francis!

Each time he says his name, he becomes more frantic.

BASH: Francis! Francis

When Bash gets there, he sticks his hands into the water, trying to pull Francis to safety.

GUARD: My lord!

BASH: Stay back! The ice is too thin.

BASH: Where are you? Where are you?

Bash starts clearing the snow off the ice, allowing him to search for Francis more efficiently. Finally, he sees Francis behind the ice. He then pounds on the ice as hard as he can. Afte another second, Francis floats to another part of the lake. Bash digs another clearing and jams his sword into the thick ice, until it finally gives in,allowing Bash to free Francis.

BASH: Francis..

Bash cradles Francis' body with his own.

BASH: Please, wake up.

 

IN THE THRONE ROOM

King Henry and Penelope sit on adjacent thrones. Henry gets up and kisses her on the cheek.

KING HENRY: You are a beautiful ruler.

Afterwards, he heads over to speak with Mary's ladies.

KING HENRY: Lady Greer; well done with that kitchen boy. That nasty gossip is the first interesting thing I ever heard about you.

KENNA: What an awful thing to say.

KING HENRY: You should be grateful . Now people might finally stop wagging their tongues about you.

After Henry leaves, the girls go to Mary, who overheard the whole thing.

MARY: Are you alright? What happened?

KENNA: Henry can be such a monster; heartless and cruel.

GREER: At least he had the courage to be cruel to my face. The rest of court snickers behind my back, as if I can't hear them.

MARY: I'm so sorry. But thank you for what you've done for Lola. I know it can't be easy.

GREER: I had my chance and I threw it away.

Greer looks over and sees Lola and Lord Julian in deep conversation.

MARY: What?

Suddenly, Lord Castleroy appears in the throne room.

MARY: I wouldn't be so sure.

Mary leaves to give the two an opportunity to talk.

GREER: Lord Castleroy.. I heard what you did for Leith. Getting him out of jail, in the army.. I want to offer my sincerest gratitude.

LORD CASTLEROY: I didn't do it for him. I did it for you.

GREER: Gossip surrounds me and still you seek my favor. Why??

LORD CASTLEROY: You have a good heart. And I'm too rich to care what people say. What I care about is you. I know I"m not the man of your dreams, but a marriage would put all the rumors to rest.

GREER: It's not that simple.

LORD CASTLEROY: But it is.The world is cruel. And it will be cruel to the next sweet girl who has the misfortune of opening your heart to someone others don'teven see.

GREER: I see you now. And you are so kind.

LORD CASTLEROY: Then would you accept my humble proposal?

GREER: Yes.. yes, I accept.

Lord Castleroy hugs Greer awkwardly.

LORD CASTLEROY: Thank you.

GREER: Likewise


ELSEWHERE

Nostradamus joins the festivities when he spots Olivia socializing with others. she too sees him and comes to greet him.

NOSTRADAMUS: You look very pretty. I wasn't expecting to see you here tonight.

OLIVIA: I'm feeling better. Perhaps it is time to rejoin society as you said. Come

Olivia tries to lead him to the dancing floor.

OLIVIA: Dance with me.

NOSTRADAMUS: I'm sorry, but I can't.


LATER

After Francis' near death experience, he and Bash try to sort their issues out.

BASH:How are you feeling? Are the chills still with you?

FRANCIS: I feel lucky to be alive.I would have died under that ice. You saved my life. Was that wise since you believe I tried to kill you?

BASH:I did believe that, didn't I?

FRANCIS: Yet you risked your life for mine.

BASH:You're my brother.

FRANCIS: Have you sent word to Mary that we're back?

BASH:Just now,. I spoke with the guards. They found the cave, but it was empty. There was nothing in there but blood; evidence of great suffering, but no monster

FRANCIS: If Olivia got away, he would surely know we were coming

BASH:Maybe that's why he left Rowan's hand.. to draw us out to the ice.

FRANCIS: Well find him. We'll see him dead. For Rowan and for all his victims, I promise you. You can go assured of that. You deserve your own life, far away from here.

BASH:Maybe I can finally find something that's.. my own.

FRANCIS: You will. You'll still be my brother.

Suddenly the King storms in.

KING HENRY: Francis! Why did you release Sebastian from the dungeon?

FRANCIS: I just needed his help.

KING HENRY: Well, now that he's here, we need to finish this once and for all.

FRANCIS: Finish what?

KING HENRY: Bash, when I told you to forget about Mary, I hoped you would listen to me. When I forced you to watch their consumation, my message was the same, but when I looked in your eyes that night, I saw the truth. Youwill always covet what your brother has.

FRANCIS: Father; did you speak to my guards the night Bash left? Did you order his execution?

KING HENRY: Sacrafices must be made.

FRANCIS: What has happened to you father? Have you lost all sense?

Henry is infuriated at this point.

KING HENRY: Do not question me! Mark my words, he will strike you down to take what is yours. If he is a threat to you, he is a threat to everything I want.

FRANCIS: He's your son!

KING HENRY: Scotland, England -- a peaceful France.

The King pulls out a sword. Francis positions himself in front of Bash.

BASH: Father! Stop this. He's leaving. He's leaving for Spain tonight.

KING HENRY: He said that before and he's still here. You refuse to let Mary go. You haven;t lisened to your King. When peopel don't listen to their King, when they have wax in their ears, drastic measures are needed.

FRANCIS: Father, you're wrong. He has let her go. He saved my life today!

KING HENRY: Don't get sentimental. You must cut down any threat like a weed.

FRANCIS: No! I just explained to you. Your son is a friend of the realm.

BASH: Francis, don't anger him.

FRANCIS: He saved your heirs life and pursued your enemies. If you harm this man - your son - you harm yourself. Do you hear me?

Henry finally puts the sword down.

KING HENRY: I am pleased to see you two getting alog again. I know just the thing to preserve this loevly harmony. If it doesn't work, this sword will take two lives tonight.

 

NOSTRADAMUS: The last person I danced with was my wife -- I was married once. I had little children.. so young, so sweet. In the mornings, when I wake up, sometimes, I'm still there, lying in that bed with my wife beside me; the little ones whispering, laughing.. WHen the plague came, I alone was immune. I couldn't save them.

OLIVIA: I'm so sorry. This is why you dedicate your life to saving others. You must know, you saved me.

Olivia grabs his face and kisses him gently.


OUTSIDE THE CASTLE

Greer stands outside in the frigid temperatures, watching as a group of people prepare to walk beyond the castle's walls.

GREER: This is not how we imagined things, is it? Me with Lord Castley Roy and you with Lord Julian.

LOLA: It's been a strange day. I don't knowif it will work with Lord Julian, but, uh, thank you.

GREER: There's Leith. Please look back.. please

Leith turns around one last time, before he is lead away from the castle.


ELSEWHERE

QUEEN CATHERINE (to Penelope): Where is he? Is it done?

Penelope holds the empty vial up for Catherine to see.

QUEEN CATHERINE:' Well Penelope', I must say, I'm impressed.

Henry enters.

KING HENRY: Well, there she is. My lovely Queen.

Henry kisses Penelope.

KING HENRY: Now, Catherine, Penelope tells me you demanded she pour that vial into my wine.

PENELOPE: She threatened my life if I failed to give it to you

QUEEN CATHERINE:' 'I did no such thing.

KING HENRY: Are you calling my Queen a liar?

QUEEN CATHERINE:' 'Oh, this is nonsense. She's a servant girl. You're not well.. She's taking advantage.

KING HENRY: I have never felt better in my life. I'm in love, Catherine. I'm in love with Queen Penelope.

QUEEN CATHERINE:' 'Sbe's not a Queen! She didn't even win that ridiculous contest. In the kitchen, they say she slept with the pastry chef to get the bean/ Penelope, my crown.. NOW.

Penelope laughs at the Queen, angering her. She lunches forward to forcibly remove it, but Henry won't allow it.

KING HENRY: Listen carefully. If you utter one more insult to my Queen, or try to harm her in any way, I will have you drawn and quartered and your limbs fed to lions. And those you love shall suffer the worst things.

Catherine starts to become unsteady on her feet, seeing Henry as a moving blur.

PENELOPE: It was poison, wasn't it?

QUEEN CATHERINE:' 'No. What are you talking about?

KING HENRY: I wanted to teach you a lesson, so I had the contents of that vial emptied into your wine. You don't look well, darling,.

QUEEN CATHERINE:' 'Henry..

PENELOPE: I wanted to thank you, Catherine. For getting me to think long-term.

Catherine starts to slip out of consciousness soon after. When she wanders into the hall, Mary greets her.

MARY: What's happened? Are you all right?

QUEEN CATHERINE:' 'Go to Nostradamus. Henry's drugged me.

Catherine collapses to the floor and can't be stirred awake.


LATER

FRANCIS: How is she?

MARY: He's treating her now. She fell into some sort of drug sleep. She's coming out of it.

FRANCIS: I'm going to talk to my father.

MARY: Francis, wait. Your father.. he.. he's not well.

FRANCIS: I am aware of that. He got so angry at Bash, I thought he would take his head off. He might kill him yet.

Bash appears in the doorway.

FRANCIS: What happened? Did father forgive you?

BASH: Not exactly, but he illuminated me wth his solution. It's a bit of a horror story, actually. You're both invited. Now, on the pain of death.


LATER

PRIEST: And so, under the eyes of the Lord, we prepae to consecrate this blessed union with two sacred oaths.

KENNA: You want me to say an oath? What abut yoru oath? You promised me someone with a title.

KING HENRY: Fine. Bash, I hearby declare you the "Master of Horse and Hunt."

KENNA: What does that even mean?!

KING HENRY: Shut up and say the words.

KENNA: Plesae, this is marriage. It can't be undone once....

Henry gets very angry and pulls out his weapon again.

KING HENRY: SAY THE WORDS!

BASH: I, Sebastian,take this woman to be my lawful wife. Under the eyes of God from this day forward.


LATER

In a castle corridor.

BASH: Take a dozen men each morning and canvas the woods. Any Pagan found with knowledge of the darkness will be brought to me for questioning.

GUARD; I don't take orders from bastards.

BASH: Haven't you heard? I've been titled as the Master of Horse and Hunt. So, gather your horses and go out and hunt.

MARY: Are you alright?

BASH: Well, I'm married to someone I don't much like and I have to stay here and watch you love someone else for the rest of my life.

MARY: Bash, you told me that your feelings for me were gone.

BASH: I lied. You're right.. I never should've come back.
