‘Reign’ season 2 spoilers: More on ‘The Lamb and the Slaughter’

Reign Logo -Will Francis’ child with Lola reach a breaking point on “Reign“? That seems to be just one of many problems that is going to surface on “The Lamb and the Slaughter,” the upcoming October 23 episode of the series. Mary has to figure out whether or not this child is a blessing, or someone destined to be a reminder of the past.

As you would expect given the name, shepherds are going to be a theme to a certain extent … though not exactly in the way in which you would expect. Bash and Lord Conde are going to be in a situation on the fringe of a terrible war. For some more scoop in terms of what you can expect, take a look at the official synopsis:

“When a shepherd is attacked by shadowy riders in the night, Bash (Torrance Coombs) and Lord CondĂ© (Sean Teale) investigate what may be the unrest of angry spirits or the beginnings of a religious war. Mary (Adelaide Kane) examines her relationship with Lola (Anna Popplewell) in light of the upcoming christening, with Francis’ (Toby Regbo) illegitimate child serving as both a bond and an obstacle between them. Greer (Celina Sinden) takes control of her future when Leith (Jonathan Keltz) returns to court. Meanwhile, Lola feels something is awry when Lord Narcisse (guest star Craig Parker) introduces his familiar new bride.”

The one thing we can say as a whole here about this upcoming episode is pretty simple: Expect tension, drama, and plenty of it. To think, it is only going to get more complicated from here.
