Catherine replies, “I prefer black. Reminds people of their loss.” She is dressed in head-to-toe black as she prepares to mourn her husband.
Mathilde wonders if Ruggeri told Catherine that. “He did,” Catherine confirms. Mathilde tells Catherine, “I think it’s time you sent Ruggeri back to where he came from, don’t you?”
Catherine turns to Mathilde and says, “He makes you nervous.” Mathilde doesn’t deny that whatsoever, but she’s more than just nervous about Ruggeri. “He makes me nervous because he appeals to the darker parts of your nature, which frighten me far more than he does,” Mathilde says.

For Catherine, she needs to embrace those darker parts of herself. “The darker parts of my nature will always ensure my survival,” she says.
Samantha Morton spoke with HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that she found Catherine’s story “compelling and shocking. This idea that everything she went through, and then she still carried on ruling but not for ego or narcissism. There’s a huge amount of just trying to keep world peace in effect and managing the world stage. I mean, sadly, it’s all too often that it’s men that are those people, but actually, historically, women were in charge of that as well.”

The synopsis for the October 23 episode reads: “Mary visits Rahima and recounts her side of the story of life at the Royal Court; Catherine and Mary have conflicting views when it comes to freedom of religion in France.” The Serpent Queen airs Sunday on STARZ.
