I do understand James' mistrust and animosity towards Darnley. First, his sister returns to Scotland and usurps his power, and now this arrogant jerk from England is trying to replace him altogether. It will be interesting to see how their power struggle plays out and what is motivating both of them.
She Didn't usurp his power. She is the queen and James was serving as Mary's regent. I know that James lost power but he was still pretty powerful as mary's chief advisor

Well, maybe usurp was the wrong word. It may have always been Mary's power, but James was certainly exercising it when she was in France. He's still powerful at court as her chief advisor, but it's not the same. Now he has to bow to his sister's authority and do things he doesn't want to do - like seduce Emily Knox. Now Darnley is threatening to take away the power he has left.

Right. And even Megan used the word usurp in the Afterbuzz interview yesterday. The fact is that James had power and it's been taken away from him.

True. He probably feels so powerless. He's most likely one hundred percent RIGHT not to trust Darnley, but he can't really do anything to make Mary listen to him or stop the marriage. It has to be frustrating.

When James visited French Court in Season 1, we never saw him meet Catherine or Henry, right? If James and Catherine could meet now, I'm sure they would have plenty to talk about. They both just want to protect Mary.

Dan's last FOUR Insta posts have been pics of Toronto street art. It's cool, but... we want to see more of your ridiculously handsome face, Dan! I know you can do it.

I don't know if they met or not, but they didn't have any scenes together. I would assume though that they did at least meet. I mean Catherine and Henry don't strike me as the type to have guests (even if they aren't there to see them) and not at least greet them.

I'm not quite sure about him either, but I'm definitely rooting for him to be a good man in the end. But for now... his motivations are not always clear, and that's what makes him interesting. Plus, he's hot.

Came across this pic of Dan when he was the MC at the convention in January. What a goofball.

This bts pic from Dan is just perfect. Their faces are PRICELESS.
