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 ...

Is he not aware that Shireen is not a war causality but was already sacrificed by Stannis after suggestion from Melisandre? No. The people that would know that, were the now dead soldiers that stayed, and the sell swords & cowards that abandoned Stannis, and none of them would go to Castle Black. They went home, to the south. The only other one ...

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 loosing her a second time. He felt powerless when she was taken from him and now he seems to be waking up to be just like his past brother, ruthless and cruel, since as he explained his mother, he should have ...

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 ...

I do believe he is in love with his little sister. I think in his mind he's just being the protective older brother, but he takes it way too far. Gina even brings this up before she dies. His possessiveness and his need to control her stems from his own desires. He can't stand for another man to even look at her, because deep down he wants her for himself.

I know this is a slightly old question, but- I've decided that Vision can only pick up the hammer because technically, he's an inanimate object. He's not exactly a human who can be worthy of Mjolnir, so I hint it's kinda the same as when Thor hangs the hammer on a coat rack in one of the Thor movies, I forgot which one.

MTV was able to ask Bale about that process of his bat-voice while he is out doing press for his new movie Out of the Furnace. "I got there. They put me in Val Kilmer's suit. It didn't even fit properly, and I stood in it and I went 'I feel like an idiot.' What kind of guy walks around, dressed like a bat? And is then going to go 'Hello, how are ...

The US Military, specifically the US Air National Guard, made/commissioned the prototype flight suits, the EXO-7 Falcon, that Sam used in Afghanistan. The last one, presumably Sam's since Riley's was destroyed when he died, is the one he asks Capt and Nat to steal in "Winter Soldier". It was taken back when Sam was discharged from the service. That suit ...

Lucifer did not get hit by that knife,..thats why he caught it,..its demon forged so it can hurt angels,..the other ones were just knifes

It isn't strictly true that Lucifer offers no proof of his nature to Decker. He does try to explain his nature by challenging her to shoot him in an effort to prove his invulnerability. That doesn't work out well as this is how he discovers that her presence makes him vulnerable (apparently progressively since earlier in the series he survives being shot ...

I think you missed the key dialogue in the previous episode. When Maze threw the knife at Lucifer and he caught it, he say something like: Demon knives forged in Hell don't count, we all know these draw blood. In other words, those knives would have hurt Lucifer, if they have hit him. Maze just assumed Lucifer would catch them, because she'd been ...

During that episode as Sherlock is investigating the death of Sabine he reveals to Joan that he blames his father for his mother's death.

Victor Hugo's piece is a very interesting piece theologically, especially looking a Javert's death. Javert represents the Old Testament, the Torah. He lives the law, and he is the law. Jean Valjean represents the new law, the New Testament, the law of love and mercy. Just as in the Bible, both laws cannot coexist; one has to be done away with, one has to ...

Sheldon nine seasons in is a very different character in some ways from the person he was in season 1. Season 1 Sheldon would never consider having sex with a person simply because of the unpredictability and lack of control of the fluid exchange. But in the nine years since he's adapted many of his behaviours. Its' entirely possible that his hospital hissy ...

Sheldon has gone to the Hospital multiple times, before and after "The Engagement Reaction". He doesn't like doing it, but he's normally guilt-tripped into it, as part of social convention. Even in "The Engagement Reaction": Penny: Okay, you know what? You are unbelievable. You buy all these superhero T-shirts, but when it’s time for you to step up and ...

This interview with the film's Costume Designer (Catherine George) indicates that two characters; Franco the Elder and Franco the Younger were in fact brothers. CoF: Was it your intention to make Franco the Elder and Franco the Younger (Vlad Ivanov and Adnan Haskovic?) look like the Guido brothers? I assume in his former life Franco the Elder was ...

I have not read the books, so that might be more informative as to what is going on but I have a theory. These men do look like prisoners, half starved and wearing rags. I believe it is within the realm of possibility that the prisons, some or just one for the real heavy crimes, give an ultimatum to the prisoners; kill the Mountain in a fight and win your ...

Because it has no lock, duh. No, there has been no stated reason why Gibbs doesn't care about locking his house, in universe or out of universe, aside from the story telling reason of being able to have random conversations. It has been this way since season 1 Episode 2 where DiNozzo first learns this. In Season 7, episode 3, Tony even points out there is ...

The 1990-1993 television adaptation of Jeeves and Wooster (starring Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry) was very confusing because they kept rotating who was playing whom! The character Madeline was originally played by Francesca Folan (1990). She was replaced by Diana Blackburn (1991) and then Elizabeth Heery (1992-1993). Francesca Folan returned in 1993 to play ...

I just watched this movie last night and I agree w/ +sophillydave that the interaction of T. Mann (James Earl Jones) with other's that can see him are those that are in someway believers we know that Ray (Costner's Character) can clearly see ghost since he spoke to the Doc in the street and later the younger version of the Doc on the highway with T.

First, from a story telling point of view, if he did, he could never be beat. Same reason he doesn't just run in at supersonic and knock everyone unconscious every episode. Otherwise, the show and the comics are both fairly consistent in that a Speedster, someone connected to the Speed-Force, behaves differently in motion then at rest. They have to actively ...

Darius Perkins played Scott Robinson in the first series of Australian soap Neighbours. The part was re-cast with Jason Donovan Perkins returned 27 years later as Marty Kranic. (I haven't watched the show since the early 90's, I just took a few flying guesses as to people who'd been re-cast in soaps I know about, and searched for information on them making ...

Whatever Gilligan says, I think the character is meant to elicit some sympathetic or empathic reactions from the audience. We wouldn't be interested in him if the character wasn't designed that way. Early on we have a great deal of sympathy as he is an ill, underpaid teacher facing a bleak future and we don't know how he will provide for his family. We ...

Kimberly McCullough for her role on General Hospital. She first made an appearance as the character Robin Scorpio in 1985, when she was 7. She has played the character as both a full-time and part-time member of the cast since then. Her last appearance was this year in 2016, making that 31 years playing the same character.

It's not a "condition" at all, but just an overactive imagination coupled with a penchant for daydreaming. The movie was based on a short story by James Thurber. In the story, Mitty accompanies his wife on a mundane shopping trip. To pass the time, Mitty has a succession of 5 "heroic daydreams", each of which parallel a situation he is in on his trip. ...

Out of Universe: In an interview with MoviePilot, Jurassic World director and writer Colin Trevorrow stated that the goal was to build a new film franchise, rather than merely being a sequel of the old film trilogy. "[There never was plans to bring back any of the original trio]. I never saw a draft in which they were included, and I think I looked at ...

Very early in the process, several of the actors had been, at various points, asked to reprise roles. Obviously, by the time the final draft had been accepted, Sir Richard Attenborough had passed away and he wasn't an option. Also, by that time, the story had changed and was scripted to take place 22 years after the original trilogy. A fairly detailed ...

I asked my good friend Patricia Beauchamp (the film's co-Screenwriter) what her original intention was for Miranda. Q. Probably a daft question, but is Miranda a germ-phobe or just OCD?

In addition to sanpaco's answer the reason why The Man in Black can go to the Hydra Island is because that island is essentially part of The Island as both islands are moving together through space and time. This means that he in fact never leaved The Island when going to Hydra and didn't break the rule.

This answer will contain many spoilers if you haven't seen the entire show. First you must understand who/what the smoke monster is. from Lostpedia: The Man in Black was a centuries-old inhabitant of the Island.

You really can't compare Vito and Michael's tenures. First of all, Vito's rise to power was pretty quick; he took out one guy who apparently had no connections or backup. Michael, on the other hand, grew up in a time of family power, each of which had plenty of "foot soldiers" who could enforce a family's will. In Michael's time, Vito would have been ...

According to this "Script to Screen" Q&A Session with the film's writer; Carl Gottlieb Robert Shaw brought the idea that the Quint character he was playing should be eating something, jaws mimicking the shark itself and they gave him saltine crackers to champ on.

He realized that Skylar was in a very precarious situation and could not have the IRS looking into her affairs with the car wash, so he tried to use that as leverage to extract more money from her. She understood that right away, which is why she said that it sounded to her like he wanted more money - because he did. So, she consulted with Saul and they came ...

I don't think the "we are Robertson" sentence is necessarily a claim that the same character becomes Robertson. Some of the preceding discussion is about the fact that the Fizzle bomber enables the time travel police (or whatever they are) agency to grow. Robertson is clearly an influential leader in the agency but is also explicitly seen giving his lead ...

Malcolm is called Sir by multiple people through out the series, including Zoe and Kaylee and even Rayne (sarcasticly). He's also called Sarge, Sergeant, Cap and Captain. All titles of authority, both earned and given. As you mentioned, this is more of a TV thing than real life. In real life, the don't call me Sir thing varies by person, and situation. ...

I don't have much evidence to support this, but while watching the film I noticed the plant didn't grow. Like, at all. So I thought, what's the significance of this plant? Then I had the idea, what if the plant is fake? It's a fake plant in place of a real one, being watered. Comparing that to Lou being a sociopath, faking emotions, pretending to be a normal ...

I don't believe it is ever explicitly said in the film, but it is supposed to be 20. This is what is stated in the play (see here for a link to a "snippet" from the play). A lot of the confusion/controversy in the film comes from the "chicken" scene, where she mentions she is 12. This has been discussed by several people involved in the film, including ...

Its referencing Marilyn Monroe quotes from the 1950's, around the same time the show is set: More overtly erotic than Dorothy, and way cannier, Lorelei doesn’t give anything away.

Full of himself, yes. He's the common english/slang use of Narcissist, but not the clinical use. And even that's contentious, as there is opposing views on Narcissistic Personality Disorder being a valid issue, if NPD should be folded into a broader category, or if it should stay as it's own diagnosis.

The closest we see Pietro coming to move objects at super speed is when he is punching someone or moving them out of the way of the train. But all of these people are moving at normal human speeds, not the high speeds of a bullet. He does come close, when he disarms (ha ha, get it?) Klaue in the salvage yard, on the Churchill. Klaue fires a single shot from ...

According to the writer, it's intentionally ambiguous. You get to decide. "We declared a lot of things explicitly about what happens to all the characters," Mike Schur tells me. "And I wanted there to be one point of real ambiguity. I declared it in the writers' room as the 'David Chase end of The Sopranos moment.' Lower stakes probably, but I ...

In-universe, Jack is depicted as a perpetual teen with the official iPhone App pegging his age at 17 (for the last 300 years). Over time, he's clearly changed his look to emulate the young people he sees around him, including picking out age-appropriate clothes. I don't think we need to read any more into the actual hoodie itself other than that he probably ...

That was the Flash. One of Flash's powers is he can run so fast he can travel through time. I think that scene was not a dream sequence, but Flash warning Bruce Wayne of a possible future.
