Yes. And Yes. The Joker has been characterized as psychopathic/sociopathic paramour to Harley Quinn in many mediums. Different shows have different takes on the relationship, from actual love to purely psychopathic control. As the Joker is the epitome of an unreliable narrator, nothing he says can be taken at face value. As he says regarding how he became ...

They said in the program that Kurt could escape when he was taken to an audience, and he arrived safely to USA.

Ramsay was pretty sure by having the bow and arrow that he has all things under controlled but he forgot to remove remove :P. He thought he will take enjoy killing Jon Snow like he did to Theon Greyjoy. But he didn't know this that Jon Snow had fight with death and defeated death. And more over they(GOT) have to take the story ahead with jon Snow they can't ...

Like any decades long comic, or story with multiple versions in multiple media, there is always the chance that someone gets married then it gets undone/someone dies/etc. Including Xavier. That said, he's pretty much eternally a bachelor. He has had three major romantic interests: A very squick-y interest in Jean Grey. This was brought up when Xavier ...

No, they never did. They also never showed her in uniform, or in a flashback in the war, so we don't have her uniform insignias or emblems to go by. At minimum, as a army nurse, that places her in the staff corps of the Army Nurse Corps. During the Vietnam War, this would make her an officer with equal rank of normal officers, but with limited ability to ...

It's Ramsay's way of torturing, he thought that if he kills the giant first, he'll hurt Jon's feelings, especially that Jon was already looking to the Giant and thanking him for everything. All what Ramsay was doing is teasing Jon, first by the letter in the beginning of the season, then killing Rickon, then killing the giant. Also, I believe that Ramsay ...

On top of the sadistic nature people have mentioned already, Ramsay is a pretty good strategist. He was probably thinking "If I kill Jon, it's me vs. a Giant and the men. If I kill the Giant, Jon can be goaded to fight me one on one, which is the only way I can win here." He had just seen Jon come running across a battlefield into range of his archers ...

We can see the answer in what happens immediately after. It's textbook Ramsay manipulation, and it nearly worked. Ramsay was surrounded by Snow loyalists who immediately aimed at him. If he'd shot Snow, they'd have killed him without hesitation, then rushed to try to save Jon. But their leader is still alive, and Ramsay's talking, not posing an immediate ...

What can he achieve by striking Jon? He might have missed it or killed him. But he will surely going to be killed later on by the giant or by any random Wilding and soldier. So not much gain. He did the same with Rickon Stark in the same episode, he could have tried killed Jon , as he was on same distance as Rickon when he got killed. Ramsay even tried to ...

I think that Ramsay got cocky... He had a bow and arrow, and Jon Snow was a bit of a ways off. He loves to mess with people and hurt them by hurting others, so he probably thought, "I'll kill Wun Wun just to make Jon angry, then I'll shoot Jon." But as we know...

Ramsay enjoys teasing people. The show runners revealed that it wasn't until the moment his dogs were about to eat him alive that Ramsay realized that he had lost (an evidence for this was his cocky comment that he "still held Winterfell" even though his entire army had been swipe out by the Knight's of the Vale cavalry and he had not one but two Starks ...

He was actually "poisoned" even before the film history began. The correct word would be "possessed" by (maybe a spoiler for people who don't know the lore) Since he was possessed from the beggining, he was acting as if nothing happened, until he began to be in contact with Fel energy from the orcs and used this as an excuse. We know from the drawings in ...

The movie is bereft of details in Apocalypse's history. The closest it came to it CIA agent Moira Mactaggert's rough explanation of the cult's reasonings for worshiping Apocalypse. Most of his powers and background are directly taken from his many comic and then cartoon appearances. Most likely due to licensing conflicts with Marvel, mentions of the ...

In the Mickey Mouse cartoon world, anthropomorphic animals all seem to be named after whatever kind of animal they are. Thus, we get Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, etc. As far as we can tell, these names really are intended to act as family names. (Note that Pluto, the only animal on these shows that acts like an animal, also has no last name.) For starters, ...

Mann was alive when he came to Iowa. Ray's brother-in-law saw and interacted with him when they introduced each other. At that time the brother-in-law could not see the ghosts on the field, therefore Terence had to be alive.

This is a cameo by Everybody Hates Chris director Lev L. Spiro. He directed six episodes in all. This was his only cameo on the show (as 'Ominous Man') according to IMDb and he's not a character. Seems it was just a fun cameo as a stand-in for the Members Only Jacket Guy in the Sopranos finale, which this finale indeed parodizes. Crew cameos in finales are ...

The entire final scene is a reference to the final scene of The Sopranos: Series creators Chris Rock (the real, grown-up one) and Ali LeRoi didn't stop there. Other Sopranos touches abounded. A menacing guy sat at the counter, looking over at their table. Chris' dad Julius (Terry Crews) had trouble parking his newspaper truck outside, just as ...

Perhaps another theory in between. I believe that Terrance Mann died in the van just before arriving at the hotel in Chisholm. Consider this. We see him driving once on the way to Chisholm, but that is the last needed activity. However, if you skip that one driving time, then the last time he interacts with someone is at the ball club. He orders a beer and ...

The mention of Lady Macbeth once having a child is certainly not a new invention created by the filmmakers for this particular adaptation of Macbeth. Shakespeare's Macbeth mentions Lady Macbeth having a child at one point. ACT 1 SCENE VII Lady Macbeth: I have given suck, and know how tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me. Shakespeare based ...

He probably didn't think she would be sacrificed but simply used her blood like Melisandre did with Gendry. Davos knows Gendry lived because he gave him a boat. So that's why he doesn't defy Stannis' orders but also why Stannis sends him to Castle Black. Davos would have jumped in the fire to save Shireen. Davos might think that Shireen was killed or ...

This is done in order to better provide the moral of the film. The lamb is usually a symbol of innocence and, by size, looks, and behavior, Dawn Bellwether resembles more of a lamb than a sheep. It also triggers some protective instincts. In the end we get the twist that So again the point is made that one should not rely on preconceived ideas.

During the French Revolution if you part of the state they would behead you in the guillotine so when the state loses the war he had two choices. Kill Himself or Be killed by "Traitors". So trying to be honorable he killed himself.

As acknowledgement of submission, and surrender. Leaving the helmet is an indication that he no longer has anything to hide. If Xavier knows he can jump into Eric's mind at any point (and obviously Eric knows this), leaving the one thing that can stop such an invasion is tacitly indicating that he is effectively 'retiring', which we see confirmed in X-Men: ...

As mentioned in comments by @NapoleonWilson he already remembered his WWII experiences with Yashida in The Wolverine. Which is even raised in a different question: Why does Logan remember Yashida? So we can assume that he got all of his memories back by DoFP, that's why he remembers that girl. But as you mentioned he got shocked seeing bone claws. Which ...

Why did Erik leave his Helmet at the end of DOFP? Was it really in his own hand at all? He lost their fight, Professor X can control him anytime if he wants now and might never allow him to take it back either if he tried. In X-Men: Apocalypse The helmet is the only thing which can save him from Professor X's telepathic power, without it he is ...

I have read that Suchet indeed asked for the more prominent religious sentiments of Poirot which tend to be expressed in the relatively later series. I'm making my way through the show on Netflix, never read the books. It's particularly striking in 'Murder on the Orient Express'. And in that case as I understand it Poirot in the book is not conflicted about ...

He had anger issues and depression at different points in his life. The episode Orientation, shows that he joined an anger management group therapy class in 1995.

In the first visit the characters are flashing around through time and Daniel Faraday is constantly insisting that no matter what they do, they can't change anything. "Whatever Happened, Happened". He knows that the island still existed in the future so he knows that he will be able to convince them to bury the bomb. 3 years after that, after the time ...

Because they're supposed to be "forgettable" and the films don't share much of a continuity to begin with. First of all, James Bond is himself not much of a character for lasting relationships. The women, or "Bond girls", he comes across during his adventures are usually more "part of the adventure" for him than serious engagements persisting beyond his ...

The show is inconsistent with Barry's speed. One episode has him moving fast enough to have a one sided conversation with out Iris hearing or seeing him. He also catches things by reflex (falling coffee mug). But he's often caught by surprise. Most of the time, he has to actively enable his speed force based powers for him to move or focus at super speed. ...

Maybe only Lucas really knows, but I've always assumed it's because both Luke and Han are their ships' captains, so as Chewie was only co pilot he does not get the same recognition. Those were the two ships directly responsible for the Death Star's downfall, Luke the shooter, Han the protector. Chewbacca did not make the decision to risk going in to ...

Hawkeye has no powers at all, and as for his back story: He and his brother were orphaned at a young age and they both ran away to the circus. Hawkeye was trained by Trick-shot and Swordsman while he was at the circus, but that ended when Clint caught Swordsman counting the money that he had stolen from the circus. Swordsman asked Clint to join Him but Clint ...

I don't think he says "We are Robertson." I think the way it is supposed to be read is: We are puppets, 'we are. Robertson,' he set all this up. Granted, the delivery is bit ambiguous (and subtitles just make the sentence "We are Robertson."), but him being Robertson seems unlikely / inconsistent. (They couldve just shown that transformation too, when ...

In Automata, the 'Pilgrim' robots have to follow two directives: Cause no harm to any life form. Do not modify any robot (including self). The robot known as the 'clocksmith' was free of the second rule, meaning it was free to upgrade itself and other robots. It was not free to harm life forms, human or not, despite the fact it was aware of what was ...

Why is Caesar good in the first Planet of the apes and bad in the 2001? Because both are different films and didn't serve canon to each other. Both are based on the same novels but they have adaptational changes. Original film series was Planet of the Apes (1968) Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970) Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971) Conquest of ...

As her wikia page explains: Ten years prior to the creation of the FLDSMDFR she died of unknown causes and her death affected both Flint and Tim heavily. After her death Tim proved to have difficulties raising his son due to not knowing how to properly show him the encouragement his mother used to show him, however Flint would continue to be ...

Ignoring that these are plot holes born from decades of films, there is two possible explanations. Xavier isn't really there. Xavier, the most powerful telepath in the world, has been shown to (in comics and cartoons): Make people see things. He is simply projecting his image into people's minds, like he does his voice at various points. Use Astral ...

This is a hold over from the comics: It will likely be pseudo-science and/or hand-waved explained in the sequel "Ant-Man and the Wasp". The comic logic is that Pym Particles allow you to change your size. When growing, they pull extra mass from another dimension. Pym, or in this case Scott, gains mass when growing, hence he has increased strength ...

The answer is, neither of those latter two things ever happened, thanks to Days of Future Past removing those two movies from the continuity. One of the major plot elements in Days of Future Past is that Wolverine changed the timeline, thus altering everything that happened from 1973 forward. The produces of the X-Men series have openly admitted this, ...

A big part of Daario's story is that Dany is very attracted to him. In the books, she is a 14 year old girl who finds his flamboyant style different, mysterious, and intriguing. It's easy to convey her attraction through text, but the shows are a visual medium. Therefore, Daario needs to be more conventionally attractive, so that the TV watching audience ...

He still does care about Shireen and Stannis. That is why he left to go to Castle Black, under orders of Stannis. He did not want to go but was loyal and went to go get the help of The Night's Watch. I'm sure he was suspicious of Melisandre but there is no way he knew that they were going to sacrifice Shireen. He cares for Jon Snow so much because he is the ...

I can't find anything specific, nor have I heard of anything specific, but I can show you these clips: April 3, 2016 April 4, 2016 April 7, 2016 In none of these interviews is she wearing any sort of neck brace. So, my best guess is that it was for her ...

The evidence: Jenny says she has a virus, but doctors don't know what it is or how to treat it. Jenny: Forrest, I'm sick. Forrest: What, do you have a cough due to cold? Jenny: I have some virus, and the doctors, they don't know what it is, and there isn't anything they can do about it. It is now thought that people were infected with ...

Well, I think itsn't AIDS absolutely. When she say an "uknown virus" it's the movie present (1994). AIDS was discovered in the early 1980's and quickly becomes a very knowed disease. The condom becomes very popular in the 80's beacause of AIDS and in early 90's celebrities like Magic Johnson and Freddie Mercury got a lot of attention for it, so it's ...

Both Cap and Bucky are on about equal strength, with Cap being stronger but handicapped by his friendship to Bucky. In Age of Ultron, we see Cap flip a moving motorcycle over his head. It's 600 pounds dry weight. Cap isn't moved at all. That's super human, as the human weightlifting record is a 400 lbs snatch. In Civil War, Bucky does much of the same, ...

Of the four Team Cap members contained on the Raft, only Wanda is restrained. Only Wanda cannot talk. Only Wanda isn't moving around. Only Wanda looks braindead. She was not only in a straightjacket, preventing her from using her hands which it seems she needs to do to focus her magic/powers, but she also had a pair of blinking lights and a collar around ...

From the wiki: Casting a hex requires a gesture and concentration on her part, though the gestures are largely a focus for the concentration With her in the straight jacket, she cannot gesture and use her hexes. It can also be assumed the she is drugged, but we have no proof of that. What we must remember is that Tony Stark is essentially the Marvel ...

Yes, he still ends up with Adamantium claws (and a broken memory). With the release of X-Men: Apocalypse we definitely know that Wolverine still ends up with Adamantium claws even in the changed timeline. It is true that it was actually Mystique who picked him up from the river at the end of Days of Future Past and he thus had a much lower chance to end up ...
