This appears to be a case of storylines from the novels getting mixed up when they translated to the screen. In the novel, Cersei never gives birth to that first child -- she has it terminated as soon as she knows she's pregnant. In the show, she tells Catelyn that she did give birth to that child, but it died young. That means that yes, Cersei did give ...

Yes, they are the same person. As a general rule, because elves in the Lord of the Rings are immortal, their names are very significant to them. As far as I know, there are no two elves in the novels, or any supplemental material, that have the same name. (There is one instance where Tolkein re-used the name of an elf that had previously died, but this is ...

Based on the books, there is a chapter about another Warg who is a Wildling, and he is attacked by white walkers and tries to possess a woman he is with in order to escape. However, in order to fully possess her he has to destroy her consciousness and inhabit her body himself, but her mind fights back and they both end up being killed by the white walkers. ...

Frank absolutely detests his father. Throughout the series Frank tells the audience of this fact (while everyone else thinks he's a dutiful son who loved his father). We know that Frank grew up poor and his father was an unsuccessful peach farmer. Frank hated the confines of his poor small town upbringing, and a lot of that resentment was focused on his ...

I could be wrong, but I don't think this is ever made explicit. I can think of several possible explanations: Cersei is pregnant and experiencing something akin to morning sickness. Jaime is too late in the sense that Cersei has found other lovers. I think this is the most likely scenario. That the symptoms go away indicates either she wasn't really ...

Zack Snyder (the film director) has stated that Batman v Superman would take inspiration from the Frank Miller comic, The Dark Knight Returns.1 The biggest deal was, Snyder brought out Man of Steel actor Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) to use his cool voice to read the following piece of dialogue: "I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years ...

Walter "Red" Barber was the announcer for the Brooklyn Dodgers when Jackie Robinson played. And yes, McGinley is immitating Barber. You can tell because he uses a few phrases during the course of the movie that are directly attributed to Barber, such as "Can of corn" and "Sittin' in the catbird seat".

If I can give you a slight spoiler, in a later episode, someone tells Bruce that his methods of fighting wouldn't really be effective in actually hurting someone, and that if he really wanted to hurt someone he should do such-and-such instead. But Alfred tells the individual to stop talking, because he wants to instill in Bruce lessons like "Becoming good ...

I think it's Argonath you are talking about. Also known as The Gates of Argonath or The Pillars of Kings. The names of they are Isildur and Anárion. Isildur was the High King of Gondor and Arnor. He also cut the One Ring from Sauron's hand. Anárion is the brother of Isildur. Both ruled together a part of Gondor. The Argonath, also known as The Gates of ...

As adressed in this related question his character first and foremost seems to be a sociopath (or psychopath, whatever you call it) in that he lacks any kind of empathy for other people, as you indentified it yourself. But the question remains why he is that way. That is a question though, that unfortunately often is not too easy or definite to answer. But ...

A bit more. Two races, Elves and Men, interbreed. Brothers Elros and Elrond result. What to do? They are give a choice: elf or man. Erond chooses Elf, Elros chooses Man. So they are not really merely choosing length of life. They are choosing which race to belong to.

If you think of Banner and Hulk as 2 different entities, then the Hulk's main objective is to protect Banner from coming to any harm. This explains why he stops Banner from killing himself (this is mentioned in the Avengers). It also makes sense that when Banner's heart rate gets too high the Hulk appears, it's his defense response kicking in. The same when ...

The cat, who was officially named Baby Puss, was shown in only 2 episodes. Season 2, Episode 15 - The X-Ray Story: Wilma is trying to feed Dino, who is too sick to eat. Wilma says to Dino, "If you're not going to eat this, I'll give it to the cat." Baby Puss is then seen running out the door. Season 5, Episode 4 - Pebbles Birthday Party: In the ...

An extreme example I can think of is the movie Up, in which marriage, life and wife's death are all squeezed into a cynical fast forward. It does look like the only reason the viewer was allowed to relate to the romance just before the skip was to demo the distancing effect. Your best example.

We are never told what happened to it. But if I had to guess, I'd say it was disposed of. Unlike the intricate hilts of swords like Long Claw and Oath Keeper, Ice's handle is rather plain and nondescript. For the most part a sword's true value lies in the blade, and hilts are routinely changed and are given little to no value. For instance, Long Claw's now ...

First thing, In Gotham, they have made characters different from the other incarnations. Most of the characters look like in a gray era, they didn't choose any side yet. Like Nygma, Cat etc. This Alfred also looks like in a grey era, he is a good guy with some darkness inside too, which might appear in future episodes. Alfred's nature towards Bruce has ...

As discussed in this question - If Neo survived in the first movie, how come he didn't in the third movie?, Neo dies at the end of Matrix Revolutions, protecting Zion and ensuring the future of humanity.

His character was just crossed out of the show after the penultimate season's opener Visitation. It's been a while, but if memory serves, no reason is ever given for this. From the trivia section for Visitation on TV.com: This episode marks the last appearance of the great supporting character William Giles. He is never even spoken of again until the ...

Whilst I have not read any article concerning Episode VII featuring any mention of Jar Jar Binks he definitely is alive at the time the Emperor and Darth Vader are killed but well I'm not sure how long Gunguns live he would probably be pretty old if he is still alive though considering the mass hatred the character received I doubt JJ Abrams would consider ...

For me, I see the character as being the same man, it's already been mentioned that there are many links between the characters in AFOD and FAFDM particularly to do with the characters injured hand. Since Joe's hand is injured in AFOD it is only fitting that due to his choice of wearing a leather cast in FAFDM draws is a subtle link to the first film. The ...

The OP has identified some of the reasons for Javert's suicide. He does sing "Damned if I'll live in the debt of a thief!" but the central reason is the conflict created in his mind by Valjean's actions. He shows this when he sings "And must I now begin to doubt, who never doubted all these years." I myself have found this difficult to reconcile from a ...

I attempted to find anything George RR Martin might have said about the character but other than what we've been told in the books and TV show we have not been made aware of Syrio's fate. I'm largely going to go off the books standpoint as it has more description regarding the final scene he appears. We know Syrio is fighting six men, five Lannister soldiers ...

I think plain and simple it's a "fourth-wall" thing. He was waiting for the dialogue card to roll in when the policeman started talking to him, as was the premise of the movie. When this didn't happen he was confused, it felt as if he was ostracised not only from the hollywoodland world, but from this same "The Artist" picture altogether. Thus he decided it ...
