Reign First Look: New Poster Welcomes Bash Back into the Royal Fold

What’s that, you say? The second half of Reign‘s sophomore season needs more Bash? Prepare to smile, my friend.

TVLine has an exclusive first look at The CW period drama’s updated poster, which now includes Mary’s former lover standing aside the series’ key players.

Between the advances of Princess Claude, the return of Diane and an encounter with an “undead” man, Bash’s role is going to be deservedly beefed up in 2015 — beginning with Thursday’s midseason premiere (9/8c) — and we can’t wait.

Enjoy the poster in full below, then drop a comment with your thoughts on Reign‘s second season: Are you hoping for a Mary-Francis reunion?

    Finally! I’ve been upset over the lack of Bash all season. Mary & Bash never interact anymore. It’s like their relationship never happened. I’m still in denial & holding out for a Mash reunion.

    • Linda P says:

      I agree. It’s like they never had a relationship. It was just dropped suddenly. I don’t really care who Bash ends up with, so long as he’s part of the story and has a major part. I like his and Francis’ relationship, his having a part in the “supernatural” and darker aspects, and well, everything.

      • Jonathan says:

        If you read on the story, francis dies, mary flees to scotland attemts to remarry, only to be shamed, she then fled to england hoping her cousin Queen Elizebeth would help her, she didnt, mary was imprisioned for the remainder of her life, only to be beheaded…

        • sam says:

          Well theres a bit more to it. She marries one of her cousins after Francis passes. Her marriage to Lord Darnley was purely political and after the birth of James it is assumed she and Earl of Bothwell plotted his death. That due to the fact she married the Earl a month after her second husbands death and did little to find justice for her husbands murder. Not long after that there was an uprising in Scotland which caused Mary to be imprisoned only to escape and after a failed battle forced her to leave her 11 month old child behind and seek refuge with Elizabeth and that itself was a confusing, political mess until Elizabeth had to behead her due to incriminating evidence that Mary was in on an assassination plot. But Bash never existed in history, he is not a known child of Henry’s. And Diane de Poiters never bore any of Henry’s children, she had two daughters from her previous marriage though.

          is this according to history or the book series? i heard they wrote books for the show and i have yet to read them.

    • Broken says:

      Completely. Bash and Mary had something Francis and she never did. Bash would do anything fr her and I do not think Francis would. Sebastion also had a thing for Mary as soon as he saw her. So, go Mash..

  2. Linda P says:

    Finally! I’ve been asking for more Bash at every oppotunity since the beginning of Season 2. Hopefully they’ve finally listened!

  3. Bill says:

    I miss Greer!

  4. Lore says:

    Adelaide is stunning, she always looks regal in the photos

  5. spindae2 says:

    He barely had scenes this season. I’m glad he will get some focus again, he deserves it!

  6. lokiil says:

    we so need a frary reunion asap :(

  7. Annie says:

    You mean they’re actually going to give one of the three main cast a storyline and a three-dimensional personality again? Well golly gee! But in all seriousness though, it’s about time. Also why are he and Mary not allowed to be in a scene together at all anymore? They may not go back to being romantic but at least let them be friends again, like they were before? The fact that they literally have had no significant interaction for the entirety of season two is a gaping plot issue.

  8. Kar says:

    Good! he should have more scenes

  9. Netty says:

    Bash is a sweetheart, looking forward to more of him. Cannot wait for more Conde & Mary interactions and Lola & Narcisse. Glad this show was renewed.

  10. Netty says:

    Oh and more scenes with Katherine and ghost Henry.

  11. KiKi says:

    About time! Torrance, and Bash, have been severely ignored for the entire of season 2 so far, it’s about friggin time he gets the screentime he deserves. Would have much preferred to see more Bash in 2A then all the Francis crap we’ve seen. Give them equal screen time, at the very least!

  12. JessicaGozz says:

    That is good news! Yey!

  13. Elizabeth says:

    About time! Bash should be more of a focus and I’d love to see scenes between him and Mary. It’s so weird they’ve dropped them completely. You would think they could manage to patch things up between them so they could be friends again.

  14. Penni Weston says:

    Bash is dashing, charming, a gentleman through and through. He has morals and tries to always do the right thing. I’m glad he will get more Reign time. Episode 8 was excellent Bash-ing. He had the scene with Catherine he so wanted. He also needs more time with wife Kenna—cutest couple on the show.

  16. Skaddadle says:

    I’m tired of the Mary Francis fighting or whatever. Can’t they keep the show interesting without messing up their marriage and making her run off with Conde. Which if they have her have an affair then it will be pretty messed up and mess with history a bunch, which is their excuse for not giving us a Frary baby. They have screwed up the Frary relationship so much that I honestly dont even enjoy watching anymore and find myself watching season 1 reruns. And finally giving bash a story line. I mean really? Conde and Narcisse have been getting more than him and they are both boring!

    • Lily says:

      “Reign” may fictionalize some of the story, but the major tent-poles remain true to history. Mary never had children with Francis, and was known to have fertility issues. You can complain all you want about Francis’ character, but the writers have kept him consistent. The show’s Francis has always been wishy-washy, and dishonorable. He would say one thing, but his actions were the exact opposite. This is the writers’ way of portraying how France was destroyed, during Francis II’s short rule.

  17. ninergrl6 says:

    Thank goodness! Bash was possibly my favorite character in season 1 but he has been noticeably underutilized so far this season. It didn’t make sense that Mary would practically forget about him after they had been so close. Glad to hear he’ll get more screen time in the near future.

  18. S says:

    Whether or not your are/were Team Mash, these two characters have insane chemistry, and more scenes and interactions between these two is only a good thing! It would be nice to return to their dynamic to ground all of the new characters in Season 2. Does this mean less Zkenna (I’ve never warmed up to this character, not sure why).

  19. Jenny says:

    Please bring back the love & happy times between Francis and Mary ♡ Frary forever. Love love love love love love love love love love this show !!

  20. Ella says:

    Good! The lack of Bash has been a bore. I miss his amazing scenes with Kenna and with Francis. Louis is snoring.

  21. Linda says:

    This show has gone so downhill. All I care about is Frary now, but it seems they’ve ruined even that.

  22. Aly says:

    wish there was some mash!

  23. Amy H says:

    Well sounds like they realized that Torrance Coombs has a huge fan base, and they may need a ratings boost. The show has definitely gone downhill since last season.

  24. So Happy says:

    Whoo hoo! I LOOOVE Bash and cannot wait to see more of him!! :)

  25. YEAH, more Bash and YES, Frary needs to be back together and Conde needs to be banished

  26. Jean witham says:

    I’m always hoping for love to find a way, not to be blown about by every problem that comes its way. Don’t know if I will continue to watch if Mary and Francis part permanently! Don’t really care so much about how accurate the story line is.

    • Lauren says:

      Agree 100%! I don’t know how many more episodes I will watch if they continue growing apart instead of moving toward the way hey use to be! The writers just need to forget history and make a good show!

    Will Mary and Francis get back together
