REIGN Photos: Family Reunion


Catherine was banished from court last season on REIGN and we saw her make her way to England to scheme with Queen Elizabeth to take down Mary. And while the two women make a go of trying to discredit the Scotish Queen in the season 3 premiere (read spoilers), Catherine will be reunited with her family soon enough.

In fact, as early as episode 3.02, Catherine will be back with Francis, according to photos from the episode. More specifically, she’ll be held captive by her own son and will be visited by Mary, Francis and Charles, who is back in France. Back in England, Elizabeth will be dealing with the political backlash of colluding with Catherine.

Meanwhile, Mary will make difficult decisions to secure Scotland’s future, while Lola will be conflicted about her feelings for Narcisse. Will she start a secret relationship with him since a courtship between them has been forbidden by Francis?

See photos below for the October 16 episode of REIGN airing at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

blood and oil

The pilot of BLOOD & OIL ended with a bang when a spark touched a puddle of oil and nearly killed Billy and Hap. Naturally, they survived, but the danger is just getting started.

In tonight’s episode, people are suspicious when all indications point to the robbery being an inside job at Briggs Oil. Wick is doing everything he can to hide what he did, but his accomplice is a wild card that could expose Wick’s involvement in the plot that nearly killed his father. Will Wick go to extreme lengths to provide his secret? When he learns that Hap and Billy went into business together he’s extremely angry, which could make him reckless.

Meanwhile, Hap’s daughter Lacy arrives in town, which sparks a rivalry with Carla. And Billy gets in deeper with Hap when he jumps into another deal with the oil tycoon without consulting Cody.

BLOOD & OIL airs tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

Life in Pieces

Matt gets an unwelcome surprise in this week’s LIFE IN PIECES when he walks in on Joan and John being intimate. He’s traumatized, so this leads Joan to come up with the idea of a group therapy session, with her leading the session (which, as you can imagine, just makes things even more awkward).

Meanwhile, Jen hires a breast-feeding consultant couple when she realizes that she’s not very successful at it. And Matt and Colleen have the most enjoyable bad date ever. Finally, Heather and Tim move in to a new home with the help of a moving company that employs ex-cons.

LIFE IN PIECES airs tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Richest Nerd: “I have two billion, four hundred thousand, eighty-seven dollars and thirty-eight cents,” declared SCANDAL’s Huck as the bidding for Olivia got underway.

Least Missed: Sorry, Barbara, but since Leslie arrived in GOTHAM, Jim hasn’t given you a second thought… and neither have we.

Worst Guest List: There was not one likeable person attending the birthday party around which THE SLAP revolved, making it hard to care much about what happened.

Best Cliffhanger: After months of being blind — literally and figuratively — to the fact his wife and son were sleeping together, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Neil revealed that he’d gotten his sight back and prepared to blast them!

Most Missed: THE BACHELOR’s Kelsey — you know, the cray cray widow who tried to hijack the show? — was the best thing about this season. And the producers obviously know it, since they’re making a big deal about interviewing the newly-ousted contestant on the next episode! [Read more...]
