Can we talk about whether we were supposed to be titillated by the ‘everyone watching’ the wedding night? I mean, for a show that really could not care at all about historical accuracy (from what I’ve seen in my 3 episodes) and then they…
I don’t know…was it meant to be ‘hot’? I suspicion it was. This *is* the CW. Wasn’t this the week where they were going to post an alternate cut of the ep w/ the two sex scenes ‘uncensored’ online today for people to watch?
Btw, did the version you watched seemed to v. abruptly cut away from the public ‘deflowering’ to Bash being in the dark woods? Mine did, but admittedly I was tired when I watched it (though I don’t think I blacked out)
I am, as you know, all for angst—but I don’t think anything in that scene couldn’t have just the same been accomplished by showing the chamber Bash was being let into, focusing on his face/eyes, and then getting us the heck outta there.
And, CW, if you want to be realz wit the history—it was going to be PRETTY obvious in short order that Mary no longer had any maidenhead to give up. And I’m PRETTY sure that was probs going to implicate Bash rather than Francis. And wouldn’t that have been a funner plot line? Or at least less predictable? Mary sent to the tower for fornication? With the King’s bastard?
I’m afraid the show I thought I was signing on for is not the show this is. As a OUAT viewer (and therefore already worn-down by such issues), I don’t think I can take a.) the incestuousness of the cast (it’s only S1, Reign!) and b.) Love Triangle.
Inventive Megan Follows who eats her scenery for lunch and would give Anne Shirley delighted chills down her spine, her I can get behind. If only they would cast Jonathon Crombie as a guest star, or Schulyer Grant (who totally should have been cast as Mary of Guise—I’ve spelled that wrong).
I think That Scene was actually designed to break the fandom.
