Reign First Look: Has King Francis' Final Hour Arrived Already?

Reign Francis Death

Let’s be real: Ever since Francis’ death was confirmed earlier this month, we’ve all been counting down the seconds until he eventually joins Henry and Mufasa and all the other Great Kings of the Past.

Lo and behold, a new photo from Reign‘s Nov. 6 episode, ominously titled “The Price,” finds Mary attending to Francis — and the King of France is definitely looking worse for wear. Could he really be meeting his maker so early in the season?

An additional  photo finds Bash and Charles joining Mary in her grief, and she’ll need all the consoling she can get; in addition to Francis’ (potential) demise, the episode also marks the return of Mary’s ailing mother (played by Private Practice‘s Amy Brenneman).

Reign-deer, do you think Francis is staring Death in the face here? Drop a comment with your thoughts on his exit below.
