Ygraine: “I am meeting Marcus Cunumorus. He, I believe, cares about my people.”

Uther: “And you, I trust, care enough to extend your gift of plenty to all my domains. We will need it come harvest time.”

Uther: “I believe a fairy wife owes her husband a blessing. And I am your husband now. Please, Ygraine, don’t make me force you.”

Ygraine: “If you know you can make me obey, I trust you also know there will be a price to pay if I ever escape your clutches.”

Uther: “I accept that. But for now, you are mine.”
