“Reign:” Mary “Chosen” for a Scare, Mash Fallout, Drama Aplenty

Whether “Reign” can continue its ratings momentum remains to be seen, but the new CW series is certainly not bringing its drama to a halt.

Relentless in its desire to entertain, the period drama continues weaving its web of assorted excitement in tonight’s “Chosen.” Addressing everything from metaphorical intimidation, to Pagan sacrifices, to love squares, to affairs with Royalty, Thursday’s episode offers an all-you-can-eat buffet for soap connoisseurs.

Whom will Bash select for sacrifice? How will Francis respond to his growing concerns about a “Mash” romance? How will the royal court respond to a scare tactic targeted at its future queen? How will Kenna’s friends react to news of her affair with the King?

These questions are due for answers (and follow-up questions) in a buzzworthy new installment of “Reign.”

The CW’s official description, teaser videos and images follow:

THE HERETICS THREATEN MARY AND BASH FIGHTS TO UNCOVER THE TRUTH — An attempt to scare Mary (Adelaide Kane) causes Queen Catherine (Megan Follows) to take drastic measures to make sure the guilty party is caught. Francis (Toby Regbo), aware of Bash and Mary’s growing attraction, turns to Olivia (guest star Yael Grobglas). Bash ventures into the woods to pay his debt — the human sacrifice the pagans demand — and returns with blood on his hands. Meanwhile, Kenna (Caitlin Stasey) comes clean with the girls about her affair with the King (Alan Van Sprang), to a mixed response. Jenessa Grant, Anna Popplewell and Celina Sinden also star. Bradley Walsh directed the episode written by Wendy Riss (#106).
