Oh Lina. I'm rooting for you, but is your reaction to being sick really 'well, I guess I'll drag myself into the woods to die all alone'? I appreciate that she was trying to protect Catherine, and also probably not thinking as coherently as usual, but still...that was a weird choice, writers. Although, it clearly worked out better for her than having all the doctors in the land did for Arthur so hey, she might be on to something.
So they made a choice to have Catherine and Arthur not have slept together at the time of the 'I was in Spain last night' conversation, but definitely did sleep together afterwards. I'm curious how they will make things flow between this show and The Other Boleyn Girl (which I assume they'll be making next).
I like the way they have set up Catherine's dowry being necessary to send Mary off and make the peace treaty with Scotland. This way Henry VII doesn't come across as just being extra greedy by worrying about money so much. Also, Mary seemed so young. I really felt for her, being sent off to marry into a country she has been taught to hate. I recognize that this was completely normal for royal girls at the time, but I still imagine that it was really scary. And just compare it to Catherine - in the show, she knew who she was going to marry from the time she was an actual child, she was prepared, she (thought she) was corresponding with her future husband - so she can come in with a measure of confidence (although she's got her share of trouble in this, as we see). Mary is just thrown into things with no warning, and I do feel bad for her.
