Just last week, Reign returned from hiatus with a bit of a new direction. After spending the first half of the show’s premiere season telling the Mary-Francis love story, Mary now plans to marry Francis’ brother Sebastian in order to take the crown. However strategic her decision might be, this change of course has caused some discomfort among Francis (and Frary) fans, and Reign star Adelaide Kane seems to think things have gone too far.

After hearing rumors that some fans were boycotting Thursday night’s episode due to its lack of Francis, Kane took to Twitter to express her disappointment in those fans, as well as to emphasize just how much ratings matter to the show. Read her tweets below:

Will you keep calm and watch Reign? The historical soap airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on The CW.
