Francis and Tomas have an archery contest, in which Tomas wins. Meanwhile, Mary's uncle asks her to walk with him. During the walk he mentions it doesn't look good for a king that his allies walk away freely from treaties and that she should beg to be released from the engagement. She replies that it doesn't look good for a queen to beg to be released, to which he answers saying that she needs to do what is right for Scotland and beg the king to be released from her engagement to Francis, so she can marry Tomas.
