'Reign' is Ditching the Love Triangle: 5 Reasons it's Good for the Show
Reign, the CW’s newly popular period drama, is hurtling toward its first season finale with high velocity. In fact, unceasing forward momentum has become a hallmark of Reign's charming, addictive, and insane first season.
So it shouldn’t exactly have come as a surprise when executive producer Laurie McCarthy told TVLine the show planned to axe it’s major love triangle. Since the show premiered (and even before, on the promotional posters) the love triangle between the young Mary, Queen of Scots, her betrothed Prince Francis and his bastard brother Bash has been front and center.
The first half of the season
saw the love triangle drive much of the plot, as Mary hoped to save Francis from a fate foreseen by Nostradamus by marrying Bash instead. Yet after Mary ultimately married Francis, and Bash got unceremoniously stuck with Kenna, the show has seemingly hit the brakes on the big love
According to McCarthy, this is not only by design, but will continue going forward. Talking about Mary and Bash to TVLine, McCarthy stated: “There will always be a lingering thing between them, but [Kenna] is going to find herself falling for Bash, and she’s going to be successful in getting him to fall for her. Our lives have chapters. People move on.”
This is huge news, not only for those heartbroken Mary and Bash fans, but more generally for the outlook of the show. In fact, I think it’s very positive news for Reign's future. Here's why:

Teen Wolf’s third season has been downright heart-breaking. While everyone on the show has been losing their minds, the moment that made audiences flip their lid was the death of beloved character Allison Argent….
I already miss you, Allison!
Downton Abbey recently aired its season finale on PBS, bringing a flawed and sometimes infuriating fourth season to a close. The finale was gauzy and jam-packed with stories, and it eventually went nowhere like most of the season….
Spoiler alert: I didn’t love this season of Downton Abbey.
There are few supporting characters on MTV’s hit supernatural drama …
In seasons past we found out Danny is also a computer hacker. Do you think Danny has any other hidden talents?
He seems like he’d have an unexpected hidden talent, like speaking Latin or he was a parkour specialist.
This week on Teen Wolf, new romances bloom, smokey and the firefly monster give everyone ugly tattoos and Stiles is probably moonlighting as a serial killer. Also, Derek’s apartment gets trashed again, because of course it does, because such is the life of Derek Hale….
What’s also great about this subplot is the twins think they can make up for aiding in the murder of an actual human being by throwing a party. Nice try, abs. Try again.
This week on Teen Wolf, an escaped serial killer roams Beacon Hills on mischief night, while a few romances heat up. Nothing reminds you to seize the day more than the specter of your own impending murder. “Let’s go out on a date tonight, for tomorrow we may be electrocuted!” is the number one way to get asked to prom in Beacon Hills High….
Honestly, a threesome with Allison and Scott would totally be Isaac’s best case scenario of how this love triangle works out.
This week on Pretty Little Liars, Alison’s journal reveals some harsh truths as the girls try to put the pieces together. But don’t worry, in Rosewood there are always more lies just waiting around the corner….
It’s also still impossible to tell whether Alison’s scenes are real or just really emotional dream states. The one thing we do know is that if you say Alison’s name three times she’ll crawl in through your window like Beetlejuice … or Voldemort.
This week on the mid-season premiere of Pretty Little Liars, the girls have conflicted feelings about Alison being alive, Toby returns with volumized hair full of Radley misconduct secrets and Caleb calls it quits with Hanna because he can’t tell her he spends 90% of his time with dead people now….
Later, Ezra takes Aria up to his murder cabin in order to convince her to give him a second chance. “There’s no cell service or Internet and no one can hear you scream for miles. I call it my murder cabin. Don’t mind the thumping under the floorboards, that’s just the human heart I keep under there for emergencies,” Ezra says, sidling up to her like a vampire emerging from the mists.
"A romantic cabin getaway just like we always dreamed about!" Aria swoons. "This makes me so mature and grownup. Let’s get back together immediately! Why are you handing me a basket of lotion?"
