The Royals Recap: Season Finale: Our Wills and Fates Do So Contrary Run
On the last episode, the twins were revealed to not be Simon’s blood children, Helena and Cyrus butt heads and have a power struggle with their new positions as King and Queen, Liam got lost in the city, and Eleanor was confronted by a man who supposedly tried to kill Simon, who also cops to killing Robert. The full recap is this way.
Helena prepares to a write a letter to people about something she’ll regret. Meanwhile, Eleanor calls Liam to tell him to call her, since she hasn’t heard from him and she’s worried. Liam wakes up in the bunker from before, and Ophelia turns the corner, saying she found him and brought him home. Liam says the walk made him feel free for the first time in ages. He suggests they go somewhere else in the world. She jokes and says Rio, and he says they can make it happen. He says they’ll make their own world instead of dealing with his. She caves. Elsewhere in the castle, Cyrus meets with the man who announced the twins weren’t Simon’s blood, and it’s revealed they didn’t so much as test the blood. Cyrus plans to fly him out of the country, and after some blackmail, succeeds. In another hall, Liam visits Simon, who has been brought home. Lucius attempts to kick him out, and Liam fights him on it and succeeds. At the local prison, Eleanor has bailed Jasper out. She admits she can’t trust anyone, but he’s the one who she distrusts least at the moment, and she needs his help to find Liam.
Helena continues to look over her letter. Cyrus arrives to try and mend bridges. Alistair’s name comes up and he mocks her and asks what they’re doing about him, and she says she’s handling it. Cyrus leaves and Helena goes through a drawer in Simon’s desk and finds an odd card. Cyrus goes into another room, where Liam is waiting for him. The latter has a proposition: Cyrus can run the monarchy, but he wants the plane- or access to it, and he’ll leave and not return. Cyrus apparently agrees, and Liam leaves. In town, Jasper pings off the things he’s missed, and is apprehensive about the meeting with Robert’s apparent killer. Back at the castle, Ophelia’s dad sees her packing and assumes she’s headed for New York. She goes along with the lie. They say they love each other, and Ophelia visibly feels bad about lying to him now, but still goes.
