Plus, a scene shows Mary having a difficult time giving birth. Bothwell (Adam Croasdell) will be by her side providing moral support.

'Reign' recap

The episode before "Blood in the Water" was "A Bride. A Box. A Body," which aired on June 2. It was directed by Andy Mikita and written by Robert D. Doty and April Blair. It showed Mary and her allies, including Bothwell, trying to take back Edinburgh castle. Unfortunately, they weren't able to do so because they just captured Lord Ruthven (John Ralston), who was eventually hanged.

Darnley reappeared and helped Mary track down the nobles that are against her. However, they were killed in a fire before they could be arrested. It turned out that Darnley actually caused the fire, as Bothwell suspected.

Meanwhile, Henry was confronted by Claude (Rose Williams), Catherine and Luc (Steve Lund) about his affair with Nicole. They tried to convince him to end it, but he didn't. Towards the end of the episode, Charles announced that he'll marry Nicole instead of a Spanish bride. As for Narcisse, he finally got revenge for Lola's (Anna Popplewell) death by castrating John Knox (Jonathan Goad) and poisoning Gideon (Ben Geurens) to hurt Elizabeth.

"Reign" episodes air in Australia on FOX 8. It also airs in the US on The CW every Friday from 9-10 pm EST. The next episode after "Blood in the Water" is the show's series finale "All it Cost Her..." which airs on June 16.
