As a writing device, it's far funnier to let the viewers imagination run away with the wild descriptions that Howard gives. Additionally, by not showing Howards mother, the writers are able to characterize and describe her any way they like, without having to find an actor who lives up to that description. Howard repeatedly describes his mother as having no ...

BBC Radio 4 has provided the Shipping Forecast on long wave since time immemorial. This is broadcast for use by all shipping around the British Isles. There are many people on land in Britain who listen to the shipping forecast even though they never go near the sea. The forecast always takes the same form, a gentle litany of sea areas, wind strength, wave ...

Tautologist's answer gives evidence of possible moments of doubt - but there's also evidence he still believed Robert was his father until (at least almost) end. This is from the scene where the small council hears of the red wedding in S03 E10 (the one which ends with Tywin sending the king to bed early): TYWIN: Any man who must say, "I am the king" is ...

They're both jokes. Raccoon asks for the leg just to mess with Peter (and that prisoner) and he asks for the eye later as a call-back to that joke. Raccoon: Oh, I was just kidding about the leg. I just need these two things. Peter: What? Raccoon: I thought it'd be funny! Was it funny? What'd he look like, hopping around? And later: ...

Marvel Cinematic Universe Hulk has had very little character development, and even less actual dialog to which to justify any emotion. The current state of Banner/Hulk is purely self-preservation. MCU Hulk hasn't shown any emotion good or bad towards his other half, or signs that he dislikes being Banner for long times. MCU Hulk is essentially just the rage ...

The final scenes of The Age of Ultron show a self-controlled Hulk fleeing in a jet because they (Hulk and Banner) don't want to risk Black Widow's life in a dangerous relationship. Banner says Hulk is "another guy" because when he is Hulk he cannot control his emotions and actions, but it seems both personalities share their memories and even being Hulk ...

He started having doubts, which he expressed in the first episode of the second season: Having heard rumors about his parentage, he confronts his mother. She dismisses it as gossip spread by his enemies. Whether he believed her or not we simply cannot tell. In the books he is not a POV character, so we don't know what his thoughts are. However ...

The last mention of Edmure was in Season 3 episode 10 "Mhysa". Look at us now, Tully. You're dead, your daughter's dead, your grandson's dead, your son spent his wedding night in a dungeon and I'm Lord of Riverrun. -Walder Frey There has been no further mention of him, or Blackfish, or the Tullys at all in following seasons of the show, which have ...

In Season 3, Episode 9, "Rains of Castamere", Bran asks Rickon and Osha to head to the Last Hearth, seat of House Umber, who are sworn to House Stark. They left in the night, separating from Bran, Hodor, Meera and Jojen. Note that Jon Umber "the Greatjon", head of House Umber, unlike in the books, is not present at the Twins during the events of the Red ...

There are no blatant reference's the Narrator's name in the movie. The source material, the 1996 novel of the same name, has the main character refer to himself in the third person as "Joe's arbitrary organ" a few times, but this could be a red-herring as it may refer to an article the character read. Of course both the article being about a Joe and the ...

Her ability to levitate herself comes out of nowhere in the movie, I assume to enhance her dramatic entrance in the final scene. So there's no real explanation for why she doesn't ever try to do it earlier. In particular, there were times when levitating herself would have been very useful, such as However, Wanda's major character development during the ...

Although various iterations of Hulk exist, the common denominator is that increased anger = increased strength. During Age of Ultron, Iron Man attempts to reason with the beast whilst it is rampaging through Johannesburg. During these futile negotiations, he mentions Banner before quickly changing direction, realising he has angered Hulk (which isn't going ...

From Game of Thrones Wikia Weaknesses section: Shadows live very short lives, created only for the tasks they were given. Although they can become invisible, a mirror will compromise the creature's location. It is implied by Catelyn that Shadows inherit the physical features of the men who fathered them, as the Shadow that killed Renly Baratheon bore a ...

It all depends on if the show follows the storyline of the books. Rickon & Bran leave each other much earlier in the books. In the second book, A Clash of Kings, Osha takes Rickon away to an unknown location immediately following Ramsay's sack of Winterfell. The fifth book, A Dance with Dragons, we are informed of Rickon's location. Theon's mute ...

Latika was not muslim. The name 'Latika' is prevalent in India for hindu girls, although this name is not very common. Secondly, in India, several muslim men have married hindu women, so that is not an alient concept either.

I don't think that Hank's interest for rocks and minerals has a particularly deep meaning (but that's just my opinion). If I remember correctly, in one of the interviews of the Breaking Bad's cast contained in the BluRay version of the TV Series (might have been Hank's or Vince Gilligan's), it was stated that the choice of rocks was considered appropriate ...

According to the Hogan’s Heroes Wikia site page on Colonel Wilhelm Klink his ascent through the ranks went as follows; emphasis is mine and parenthesis English rank equivalents as well: He became a Hauptmann (Captain) in 1920, Major in on December 25, 1924, and finaly Oberstleutnant (Lieutenant Colonel) in 1929, a rank he would still hold when made ...

Prior to the fall, none of Bran's Warging nor Greensight abilities had manifested themselves. The most he had shown was a stronger than usual affinity with his (then unnamed) direwolf, which is an ability he shared with the rest of his siblings. After his fall, those abilities started to show up. The warging ability was not something unique to him. The rest ...

I recall Gale explaining to Walter: I'm definitely a libertarian. Consenting adults want what they want and if I'm not supplying it they will get it somewhere else. At least with me they're getting exactly what they pay for; no added toxins or impurities. I think it's also useful to consider the purity of meth. he could make, which was probably matched ...

Yes, Don Eladio Vuente is the head of the Ciudad Juárez Cartel. His title of Don says it all, implying royalty. But Gus' revenge was mainly personal, as Eladio was the one that had his friend killed right in front of him a long time ago. It was just very very thorough because if it wasn't, any living members of the cartel would have sought revenge.

Walter White HAS negotiation experience but not street wisdom. Walter White was the co-founder of Gray Matter Technologies and helped in a research regarding photon radiography; he contributed to a project that was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, awarded jointly to Herbert A. Hauptman and Jerome Karle for outstanding achievements in the development of ...

The Wights have no free will. Whether they also lose their memories is never explicitly stated, but we can try a guess (primarly based on the books); Othor was an experimented ranger of Castle Black during his life, he knew that the most important man there was the Lord Commander and where to find him. As a Wight, he tried to kill the Lord Commander. It ...

It is not clear anywhere in movie to what religion she belonged. She was shown as orphan, it may be possilbe she never knew what religion her parents belonged to. As far as her name Latika is concerned, it is used by both muslims and hindus. It seems the director didn't want to show her as associated with any religion. If you look at her life, most of the ...

This is to build on Jake's excellent answer. The "average" American officer basically tops out at Major, e.g. Major Nelson in "I dream of Jeannie." Around the age of 40, an American Major has two choices: He can leave the army on half pay as Major. He can remain a "career" Major, and be rewarded with a final promotion to Lt. Colonel, around age 50, ...

Hulk is a threat to any living being next to him. At the end of every movie there is a war or battle, etc. He feels bad about himself after incidents like that, so he leaves. But the truth that Hulk is a hero and saviour of humanity doesn't change, so he comes back to help. But he can't and won't attach to anybody because of his condition.

Out of universe for the film, there's this: In the sequel to the novel (Gump & Co.) Jenny dies of Hepatitis C. So, the word of God from the author is: Hepatitis C.

From the green band trailer, Deadpool certainly seems to be self aware as a character in a film and does break the fourth wall. In one of the fight scenes he looks directly into camera and says "Cue the music." at around 1:28. This bit is omitted from the red band trailer (NSFW), which is what most people seem to be watching. ...

While watching this scene, I always got the impression that he knew he was finished. Taking on four fully armored knights is no small feat, no matter how accomplished a swordsman you are. If he's confident that he is about to die (or at least that it's a likely possibility), it doesn't matter at all what sword he's using. His objective here is to delay ...

He started to have the dreams after the fall, when he was in a coma caused by it. From the books wikia: While Bran is comatose, an attempt is made on his life by an unnamed catspaw. (...) In the meantime, during the coma, Bran has many visions, including a hazy memory of his falling from the tower and a three-eyed crow that tells him it can teach ...

Jack's comment is about the fact that his father has lived to be an "Old Pirate" you will notice several times through the series that pirates don't generally live long enough to enjoy the fruits of their ill-gotten gains, which Captain Teague has done. Captain Teague's comment is a bit more cryptic. He is revealing a crack in his swagger here. He admits ...
