Things I Like: Lola (Reign)

Lola Reign CW

My personal favorite out of Mary’s close friends, Lola isn’t as important in the first season as she is the next few. She eventually has an affair with Prince Francis.

Lola and Mary Reign CW

Which does cause some major drama in her friendship with Mary, Queen of Scots. She’s a bad friend.

Lola has son Jean Reign CW

Due to all the royal family drama, she ends up pregnant and giving birth in a plague filled French countryside. But she survives and gives birth to a son named Jean.

Lola baptism for baby Jean Reign CW

While Lola no longer wants to be with Francis, she does want him to be a father to Jean. Francis and Mary soon are all on good terms with Lola.

Lola struggles to find new husband Reign CW

Lola had tried to find a husband before Jean was born, but with not much luck.

Lola meeting lord Narcisse Reign CW

Until she caught the eye of Lord Narcisse who strangely overlooked her past history and was very much after her heart.

Lola wedding dress Reign CW

Which he oddly won and they were married. Though his desire for power and “evil” caused her to leave him after her family were held hostage by England and she quickly volunteered to take their place.

Lola in England Reign CW

Lola wasn’t really a prisoner in the traditional sense per se, but she couldn’t leave England or from the eye of the royal guards if she wanted to.

Lola and Queen Elizabeth Reign CW

But she oddly becomes a friend to Queen Elizabeth of England. Helping her greatly and knowing her deep secrets. The show writers made it seem like Lola “could have” been a uniter between the two rival Queens.

Lola put on death row Reign CW

But John Knox tricks her by writing her a coded letter that she believed was from Mary. Motivated by the letter, she tries to assassinate Elizabeth, which I found odd. She is found out and confronts Elizabeth about it.

Lola dies Reign CW

I was sad to see her go (but I enjoyed seeing Lord Narcisse’s deep feelings for her and attempts to free her in her last moments) but she had a good story-line and I guess there wasn’t much room for her to have much of a story when Mary got to Scotland.
