Queen Mother Maria Fedorova:
He knew how to be a Tsar. He'd have burned Vienna down, stomped on the Germans, and shot the strikers, ANYTHING to give Russia peace. And HE'D certainly would've known how to deal with Rasputin.

Transcript:
Can't you think of Russia?
I wish your father were alive.
Don't throw him at me!
He knew how to be a Tsar.
He'd have burnt Vienna down,
stamped on the Germans...
...and shot the strikers.
Anything to give Russia peace.
And he'd certainly have known
how to deal with Rasputin.
He is a man of God.
Do you believe that?
He works miracles.
He keeps my son alive.
Do you believe that, Nicky?
Sunny does. She needs him.
Hang him!
I don't wish any man harm...
...but so many Russians
will die if you don't.
I can't.
At least send him to Siberia.
I can't!
He's going to destroy us.
Millions will suffer. And all because
you can't say no to your wife.
It's in God's hands.
That's no answer!
I see what's happening!
Then act!
Come back home.
Hang this man,
send Alexandra to Livadia...
