My reading is similar (but not the same) as G Blake Meike's. The ring symbolises a more noble/idealist Frank, taking it off isn't to allow him to toughen his knuckles, but is him "taking the gloves off", and entering the bare knuckle fight. The dialogue with Walker is a a Freudian thing, his humanity (or conscience) warning Walker that the fight is now on ...

Asher had a chip on his shoulder by not being accepted as a true gladiator. Recall he once went back into training once he recovered from his early disabling fight, but his owner told him to get back to his secretarial duties. So, he always felt belittled by the other gladiators. I assume this last stand was his effort to demonstrate that he could be one of ...

As was shown in last night's episode, "Four Walls and A Roof," Bob was likely crying because he was, in fact, bitten by the walker that dragged him under the water earlier in the day. He may have been contemplating suicide, and/or crying because he was building a relationship with Sasha and will now never get to fully see how it would turn out due to the ...

Did she not find ANYONE else in the entire King's Landing to satisfy her desires? Jaime and Cersei have been having a physical relationship long before either of them went to King's Landing, as is revealed in Jaime's third chapter of A Storm of Swords: He could never bear to be long apart from his twin. Even as children, they would creep into each ...

Less Than Dead It is difficult to answer what exactly he was after he was blasted by his own Avada Kedavra, no-one seems to know, for sure. This is Voldemort's explanation to his Death Eaters: “I miscalculated, my friends, I admit it. My curse was deflected by the woman’s foolish sacrifice, and it rebounded upon myself. Aaah . . . pain beyond pain, my ...

Dolores Umbridge isn't misguided, or just blindly following the words of the leaders. She was a part of the judicial body and drafted many anti-creature laws, including the anti-werewolf legislation that hindered Remus Lupin's job search. She had her own agenda and she did institute it. Her position as Senior Undersecretary allowed her the political clout ...

Severus was not a mudblood. He was a half blood with a pureblood mother from the Prince line; The Halfblooded Prince. Lily was a childhood friend of his, a crush, and most likely the bitter man's one true love. He told Lily about magic and she was probably Snape's best friend for most of his (early) life. When they became estranged later in their Hogwarts ...

Pink is to Umbridge as black is to Snape. Umbridge acted like a little girl in some ways, using it to hide her true self. Her gaudy pink visage was meant to make her seem respectable and unthreatening, helping in her political machinations and her actions as Hogwarts High Inquisitor. The pink walls of her office and the kitten plates, etc etc contributed to ...

There is an awesome answer, on Reddit, here. At one point, Frank explains to Tusk why he taps his ring, when he leaves a table or a lectern. To quote from the Reddit posting by thisisntnamman: Frank: "Something my father taught me. It's meant to harden your knuckles so you don't break them if you get into a fight. It also has the added benefit of ...

It's like deciding limits. Everybody has different boundaries, a thief can justify that he doesn't kill anybody so he is better than a killer. Similarly everybody sees different crimes differently. For someone tax fraud is nothing but gambling is OK or vise versa. Similarly Ted is also a person which has double standards, he justified tax fraud for saying ...

From Penny's Wikipedia entry: In contrast to all other characters, Penny and her father's surname have not been revealed. Co-creator Bill Prady stated that Penny's last name will be revealed eventually. Executive producer Steve Molaro, however, has since stated her surname will remain a secret.

I always thought it was a pride thing. That, coupled with him wanting to live beyond his means. Throw in a dash of irresponsibility (or immaturity) into his character as well. When he thought the money came from his rich aunt that he never knew, he did the first thing people new to money do; he spent irrationally and bought a nice car. Just read any ...

I figure all people are weird to some degree. We are all related as well. I think the above analysis is mostly correct. I had never looked at that or thought about that. My idea was that Minnesota , being heavily populated with scandanavians, were observed by the Coen brothers throughout their childhoods. Having lived in Minneapolis and being mostly of ...

As we know, Gus is an extremely careful and intelligent man and he is in fact always ahead of Walt and everyone else. And I think it was exactly the fact that Brock was poisoned (which we know Gus didn't do) that made him doubt the situation, which is told to him by Jesse during their meeting right before. Jesse: He's not sick, he was poisoned. Gus: ...

It's not,the man on the left & woman were just 2 ppl that I saw every day drinking on the streets & who knows what else.The guy on the right was actually 17 here.

I wouldn't think so because; the writers at Marvel (presumably) understand how time travel works. Meaning if Wolverine wasn't saved by Stryker in the movie and ends up not having Adamantium claws that would mean that all of the Wolverine movies as well as the first three X Men movies have an inconsistency. He could meet Stryker again in the future/past(?) ...

I can only offer my own understanding of Mark's words here (even though I tried to snoop around Google a bit for an explanation, but no luck this time, maybe just this one site mentioning it briefly). Basically, what he said could be understood in two ways: Explanation 1: He just got a kiss (even though more of a consolidation one than anything else, but ...

I know of no canon answer, and you're not going to get one now. However, it's likely the name is meant to reference a term which isn't really widely used now but was pretty common when I was younger. "Pip", or "Pipperoo" was used to reference someone who was really good at something. "Look at that little pip!" "Lynn Swann? He's a pip!" My dad used that ...
