Francis has been gone from Reign for so many days that we’ve lost count (in reality, we don’t want to count them, because we loved him).
However, during last night’s episode, he kind of reappeared on the series.
Mary (Adelaide Kane), who’s trying to actually save Lord Darnley from being assassinated by Queen Elizabeth’s raid on Scotland, argues with him about keeping him in a safe house versus having him at their actual engagement party.
He doesn’t listen, obviously, as goes to the party.
Mary figures out why she’s been pulling away from her betrothed — because of Francis!
The ghost of Francis lives!!! ????

See, Mary already had a husband (Francis, played by Toby Regbo) that she loved very much, and watched him get murdered right in front of her. She can’t go through that again — she can’t fall for Darnley (Will Kemp).
However, Darnley reassures her that this won’t happen to them — um, really? Has he not watched this show or read history?
In the end, Mary and Darnley truly connect through this. Looks like next week a wedding is happening? Or, you know…just war.
