"Reign" Episode 14, "Dirty Laundry," revealed that Lola is pregnant with Prince Francis' child, while Mary was unable to conceive during her two-month honeymoon period. In the episode, Mary stopped Lola from going through a life threatening procedure to kill the baby. And, she came to know that Lola is carrying Francis' child. The preview of the upcoming episode suggests that Mary will accuse Lola of trying to destroy her marriage. Also, it looks like Lola and Francis' relationship may not just be about the one-night-stand.
The episode 15 of "Reign" is titled "The Darkness." In this episode's preview clip, Mary can be seen saying to Lola that she [Lola] made a mistake and that she needs to fix it before it destroys her marriage to Francis. The preview suggests that Francis will be visiting Lola in her chamber. According to the synopsis of the episode, Lola will not participate in an event that provides women of the castle an opportunity to meet potential suitors. Lola's reluctance is likely to disappointment Mary.
In "Dirty Laundry," Bash had warned Mary that when the time comes, Francis and the rest will choose their own self-interest over hers. If Mary does not get pregnant soon, his warning is likely to come true.
Meanwhile, King Henry is set to kill someone, again. In "Dirty Laundry," he had accidently pushed the sister of Bohemia's Archduke to death. Queen Catherine had helped him clean-up the mess. The preview provides a glimpse of an arrogant King talking to his Queen, not the scared King of the previous episode seeking his wife's help.
Bash will be going inside the woods to experience the terror of dark forces. He will be determined to find out the truth behind the darkness.
