“Reign” is the story of a young Mary, Queen of Scots as she negotiates love and politics back in 15th century France. In this exclusive video from the premiere episode, we get to meet both Mary (Adelaide Kane) and Bash (Torrance Coombs), the king’s illegitimate son.

What happens in this video?

The scene begins with Mary throwing some stones off into the distance. Why does she throw them with such anger? That would be because the young queen had intended them as a gift — a gift that was then refused.

But Mary soon forgets about the insult and the rocks when her dog, Sterling, runs off into the woods. She would have totally followed that dog too, except that Sebastian shows up right at that moment. He doesn’t want Mary to go wandering into the forest, which actually is very sensible. She is, after all, a teenage queen who has survived assassination attempts in her young life.

Is there more to it than just concern for Mary’s well-being? That is a possibility, as is the apparent attraction this young man has for his half-brother’s fiancee. Things are definitely going to be complicated, no matter what the outcome.

“Reign” premieres Thursday, Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. on The CW.
