Whether or not it was Lola's plan, she still pursued the assassination. Elizabeth would be a fool to not kill Lola after Lola conspired to kill her. In X Men Last Stand Magneto says it best, "You let the pawns go first." Lola was a pawn in John Knox's war against women in the monarchy. As a result, she went (died) first.
Still in shock guys. I can't believe they went through with it. I kept hoping until the very last second. I get it, Elizabeth can't really let her live when everyone saw the assassination attempt and she's admitted guilt. Whether Elizabeth likes Lola and understands why she did it or not, she can't risk looking that weak to her people. But holy crap. Can't anyone have at least a little bit of a happy ending on this show? It's a historical FANTASY after all. Throw us a bone here. We stuck it out after losing Francis. I was excited to see what would become of Lola & Narcisse as they were reunited. I think they could have repaired their marriage. Now there are very few characters or plot lines remaining that I have any emotional attachment to. If they let Leith die, I might have to move on. Love this show but come on.
The show took a huge dive after the death of Francis and Lola still had good scenes but I feel like they wrote her into a plot line that needed umpf. She should have been trying to hide her child abroad with Narcisse since he his technically the bastard son of a dead monarch. I don't think she would have ever considered this request knowing John had no one if she was caught. Narcisse is also in jail now so where is the baby....Being raised by Elizabeth out of pity?

She was only obeying orders. If anything, Elizabeth should be angry at Mary (even though Mary didn't actually tell her to do it). I'm sick and tired of Reign killing off all the good characters: Aylee, Francis, Leith (possibly) and now Lola. Lola was innocent and was only being loyal to her Queen.
Her innocence, charm, and loyalty was refreshing among the other scything characters. Lola deserved to live and have a second chance with Narcisse, especially now that she realizes the depths of treachery one must do for those they love. I am so sadden that Lola and Narcisse's characters will not have the opportunity to love, forgive, and explore the next chapter of their lives together.
