‘The Bastard Executioner’ Season Finale Sneak Peek: Love and Milus Have a Heart-to-Heart

Tonight, The Bastard Executioner airs its season finale with an episode that, according to Katey Sagal (whose Annora seemingly revealed herself to be Wilkin’s mother last week), will both answer questions and leave doors open for a possible renewal.

In the exclusive clip above, we see that Lady Love (Flora Spencer-Longhurst) will ask Milus (Stephen Moyer) for help rescuing Father Ruskin and Luca from the Rosula. Love also informs Milus that she knows both Wilkin’s true identity and that he has known it all along.

What happens next is the reason why this pairing has been our favorite relationship in Season 1: from the way Milus fights the urge to touch Love’s hand when asking her to stay open to Baron Pryce for the sake of their shire (a sign of respect — she’d read the tender gesture as manipulation), to the way they both convincingly admit that they are, despite appearances, fond of one other.

The Bastard Executioner season finale airs Nov. 17 at 10 p.m. on FX.
