The High Sparrow made two things clear. That Cersei was not done. She only confessed some crimes, not all that she was accused of. She was released pending her full trial, in s05e10 "Mother's Mercy". SPARROW: Good. But these are terrible charges. And the realm must know the truth of them. If Your Grace has given honest testimony, your trial will prove ...

Gwenyth Paltrow's contract with Marvel Studios ended after Iron Man 3. From an article on ComicbookMovie.Com; While it was widely assumed that Gwyneth Paltrow was another star who had been signed up for a ridiculous number of Marvel movies, she has now told Empire Online that her contract expired with Iron Man 3! "My deal is over as well," she revealed ...

Davos doesn't know. In the final episode of season five, "Mother's Mercy", the following happens: The gates to Castle Black are opened and Melisandre arrives, alone and on horseback. Jon and Davos rush over to her. JON: Stannis? No response. DAVOS: Shireen? The princess? A long look but no response. Melisandre walks away from the ...

He explains it to Jaime right after the scene with the Zombie Mountain. He is scared that the High Sparrow will jail his mother again; he is scared of losing her a second time. He felt powerless when she was taken from him, and now he seems to be turning out just like his past brother, ruthless and cruel. As he explained to his mother, he should have ...

In season 6 episode 5, "The Door", the origin of his nickname and only sentence "Hodor" is revealed. It's the first time that someone is warging into the same person in the present and the past. It looks like it connected Hodor's consciousness of both times. Young Hodor in the past recognizes the word "Hold the door!", which are shouted at Hodor in the ...

Massive spoiler alert if you haven't seen the 5th episode of season 6 already. Seriously, here there be dragons, turn back now, you have been warned. I'll update this sometime later when it's no longer considered "spoiler" territory. As shown in tonight's episode, it would seem it was Bran reaching back to Hodor as a child using his abilities, causing him ...

As seen in the Season 5 finale, Jaqen turned into a frail man who turned into Arya. The Waif turned into Jaqen. All by removing their faces, as no one before the Many Faced God. It's completely possible that no one did it again in Season 6 Episode 2. Considering that the idea is that no one can become anyone when allowed, it's a given that it's possible. ...

TL;DR: In-Universe: Because Eugene is socially awkward, didn't have many friends for most of his life, and may have Asperger's Syndrome Out-of-Universe: Because Josh McDermitt is imitating his little brother, Zach. It is pretty clear that he's trying to impress people, and he's incredibly socially awkward. Josh McDermitt confirms this: I think ...

I think there are three parts to this: 1. Why does he care about Jon and side with his friends at all? See Purpose of Davos protecting Jon Snow?. Basically, he's been thrust into siding with Jon's friends by circumstances, and doesn't have a whole lot else to live for at this moment. 2. Why does he seem emotionally invested in what happens to Jon? The ...

From this answer on SciFi.SE; Bucky Barnes does not have superhuman abilities. Neither does Steve Rogers. Instead, Steve is simply at peak physical fitness for a human being (to the point where he may appear to be superhuman). It would seem that after Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Bucky also shares these traits. From Captain America: Civil ...

I think Sansa is playing the Game of Thrones. She realizes that she cannot trust Littlefinger to have her best interests at heart, and as long as he is involved, he has some power in the North, which she does not want. She believes that she is better off taking the North under her own power than allowing Littlefinger to continue to have control over her.

According to Kristian Nairn in the New York Times: Did the fact that Bran was responsible for not only his death, but also his simple-mindedness change your idea about the nature of their relationship? No it doesn’t. Although Bran was responsible for the whole chain of events that killed Hodor, Hodor didn’t have to hold that door. He wasn’t ...

Murder by Death is a 1976 satirical comedy that looked at several different fictional detectives and their story telling style, such as hidden twists, unrevealed clues, and similar machinations. Each of the detectives (or group) was based on "real life" fictional characters. Sidney Wang - Based on Charlie Chan created by Earl Biggers Sam Diamond - Based ...

Littlefinger has already proven that he cannot be trusted, and that he is only on his own side, definitely not on Sansa's. While he may be - right here and right now - offering her the army of the Vale, she is smart enough to know that at a moment's notice, he could change his mind and turn that army on her. She knows that will absolutely happen if ...

Yes, he did really die. This is most evident from the funeral held for him at the end of the movie, where James Gordon holds his obituary speech. As soon as he fell off the building Batman and Gordon examine him and shortly after the police arrive. There is certainly no way for any shady goings-on to take place and someone would notice things like a switched ...

He definitely warged into Hodor while they were still in the cave. When the White Walkers arrived Hodor was terrified and wasn't reacting when Meera asked him to move Bran. This caused her to try to wake up Bran: Warg into Hodor now! Bran, wake up. We need Hodor. We need Hodor. Warg into Hodor now! After that the Three-Eyed-Raven says: ...

The Yellow clothes are a type of 'Elder Endorsement', a ratification or 'pass'. The village guardians who dress up as the beasts know that if someone is dressed in yellow they have been given the Yellow cloak under the supervision of a village elder, so it is a sanctioned activity. If someone is found wandering without one, it will be assumed they're not ...

From Wikipedia (of all places): Apocalypse is an ancient mutant born with a variety of superhuman abilities who further augmented himself after merging with Celestial technology. The character has total control over the molecules of his body, enabling him to alter his form as it suits him, such as allowing his body to become extremely malleable and ...

I have heard a fictional theory to why she is absent in the movie.. The theory states that Miss Pepper Potts grew tired of Tony lying to her. Apparently, Tony swore in Iron Man 3 that he was never going to make any Iron Man/Mark costumes and Artificial Intelligence systems (A.I's) again, a promise which was broken when Tony created Ultron and Vision in ...

The Alien setting has FTL travel of varying speeds. People who travel on long journeys in slow ships travel in stasis, also known as cryosleep or hypersleep. These are the pods you see people enter or exit near the beginning or end of most of the films. The point of stasis is to reduce the consumption of resources and slow down aging. Effectively, people ...

From scifi.se's answer on similar question Because Bucky was also frozen for most of that time: Dialogue from The Winter Soldier makes it clear that Hydra put Bucky back into suspended animation after completing each mission, and only unfroze him when they needed him: Zola: The procedure has already started. You are to be the ...

It's thematic for multiple reasons. It's a continuation of Steve's character plot. Is Captain America just a symbol, or a man? It ties into the overall plot of the movie. Who is the man behind the uniform? Contrast 'Who is the Winter Soldier' and 'Hydra infiltrating SHIELD'. It is a call back to The Avengers. Where Stark was Goading Tony into a fight: ...

I think it's part of the cameo from George St-Pierre. He's having a fight vs a UFC champion, so to complement the cameo he goes without a mask to make it feel like a UFC fight. I have not found anything from the director specifying an exact reason so I assume it's related to GSP's UFC carreer. As OP stated, he doesn't need to hide his identity, it's purely ...

That scene came two times in the film, first in the start and second time in the climax. In the first time of that scene, we did see him taking those blue liquid packs which were used to make more Winter Soldiers later on from the car. When that scene came back again in the climax, we only see him murdering Tony Stark's parents. But we can connect the ...

Keefe doesn't send those cheques, Lex does. When Superman confronts Lex Luthor on the roof of LexCorp, Lex says something along the lines of that it only took "a few well placed letters" to convince Bruce to fight Superman. We can infer that Lex had been intercepting the cheques to Keefe, and sending them back to Bruce in order to get him to further blame ...

As mentioned by others, in S06e05 "The Door", we see the events that caused young Wylis (Walder in the books) to become Hodor, and only be able to say Hodor. It involves a sort of astral time travel projection. Bran, who is a warg, in that he can project his mind into animals, found out he could warg into Hodor. The characters explain this as Hodor being ...

The simplest answer is that Vision wouldn't want to be the leader. During the final scene with Vision and Ultron, the two have a charming conversation about humanity. Their opposing viewpoints explain Vision ' s outlook on humans. While Ultron believes them to be dangerous and that they should be controlled/killed/replace, Vision wants to watch them grow. He ...
