Welcome back to Reign, in which narrative burns quicker than the fires lighting the royal hall. This is one way to kick off a season. Many series opt for the easy re-introduction into the shows’ worlds and stories. “The Plague” has its “Previously on Reign…” segment and that’s that. Did you miss last season?

Fred Gerber directed the episode written by Sherri Cooper and Jennifer Levin (#217).
Since her unforgettable run in the Whedonverse, Carpenter has made memorable recurring appearances on a variety of shows like Veronica Mars, Burn Notice and Greek. But her current gig on The Lying Game has her back on television as a series regular.
The Lying Game focuses on a pair of identical twins, Sutton and Emma, (both played by As the World Turns alum Alexandra Chando) who were separated at birth, only to find each other in the teen years. Searching for their birth mother requires unraveling a web of family secrets that gets more interesting when Carpenter’s character,
Can you give us some insight into why Annie has been gone so long and her relationship with Phyllis?
Charisma Carpenter: Her relationship with Phyllis is sister. She's been gone so long because I think when she was there, she was in high school, and things did not go well for her.
