The meeting will force Mary to understand what lengths she is willing to go to, to save her country – and, she will turn to Bash (Torrance Coombs) with details of her plan.

Meanwhile, Francis will hit the battlefield, leading France against the English. And, according to the episode description from The CW, Leith (Jonathn Keltz) is back. After being caught kissing Greer earlier in the season, a woman far above his kitchen boy stature, he ended up in the military to save him. In Thursday’s episode, Francis will find Leith on the battlefield.
