'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 triangle. 

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' Exclusive Interview: Keahu Kahuanui Talks Danny's Special Skills and What's Next for Dethan

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.

'Teen Wolf' Recap: Are You Afraid of the Dark?

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.

Honestly, a threesome with Allison and Scott would totally be Isaac’s best case scenario of how this love triangle works out.

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: Shocking Truths in Ali's Diary

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.

'Pretty Little Liars' Mid-Season Premiere Recap: The Race to Find Alison Gets a Slow Start

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?"
