This article is a preview of The Serpent Queen Season 1 Episode 7, detailing its release date and where to watch it online.
Starz’ new darkly satirical historical drama The Snake Queen tells the story of Catherine de Medici, one of history’s most despised monarchs, and transports viewers to 16th-century France as she tells her life story to one of her servants, Rahima. A quintessential modernist biography in many ways, with a contemporary soundtrack and various formal quirks such as regular fourth-wall breaks, the new series is reminiscent of everything Yorgos Lanthimos did The favourite to Hulu’s youngest The great.
The Snake Queen Season 1, Episode 6 made the show’s supernatural elements more apparent when Catherine finally made a major decision regarding Henri. Here’s what happened, summarized:
Summary of The Serpent Queen Season 1 Episode 5:
- In the framing device, Catherine lights up Rahima before sharing more about her backstory.
- As Diane’s addiction to gold and Henry’s drinking worsen, both become a threat to France. With the Dauphin Francis engaged to Mary Stuart, a Catholic, their union will inevitably upset the Protestants and cause all sorts of trouble.
- Diane wants the wedding to go ahead for financial reasons and she is supported by the Guises. Of course, eventually Henri will do as she says, so Catherine takes drastic action.
- Catherine turns to Ruggieri and realizes a prophetic dream she had by urging Henry to the joust on her son’s wedding day – he is killed.
- In the present day, Catherine and Ruggieri clearly have a plan to prevent Mary from wresting power over France from her, and this plan affects Rahima in some ways.
The Serpent Queen Season 1 Episode 6 Release Date

Previews and Predictions for The Serpent Queen Season 1 Episode 7
While no official synopsis is available, we can make some predictions based on both history and what we’ve seen of the show so far:
- What does Catherine have planned for Rahima?
- In the past, Catherine will take over after Henry’s death.
- According to the true story, Diane’s downfall begins after Henri’s death, and we’ll see that gradually. Catherine will isolate them and force them into exile. In real life, Diane suffered a fall from a ride that she never recovered from — I wonder if The Snake Queen could easily fold the timeline to imply that this fate is another consequence of Catherine’s interference with Ruggieri.
