I think @System Down has summed up all the imported points. Just to add something though, here is an interview from Time Magazine the shows co-creator, Mark Guggenheim, where he discussed the change of direction in Season 2 compared to Season 1: TIME: Were there different sorts of things you wanted to accomplish with Season 2 compared with Season 1? ...

Here's My Opinion: First: know that in TV series usually nothing is obvious from the begining, USUALLY, as for the CW series Supernatural, I have heard producers were only making 4 seasons, but they continued when they saw the unexpected number of fans and followers. and Second: there are so many alterations to characters, like Slade Wilson and Oliver's ...

While Ankit presents a very reasonable rundown of the scene in his answer, when I carefully rechecked the shootout in particular, I came to the contradictory conclusion that he at least is opposed to the Basterds, which still leaves it unclear if he's entirely dedicated to the Germans or just minding his own business (or if he maybe even was a double agent ...

She meant it as a slight insult, implying that Roy had changed when he started dating Thea. Abercombie and Fitch is an upscale clothing brand that is considered "trendy", particularly among the children of middle-to-upper class parents. I'm not sure what the word for "preppy" is these days, but that's how I'd describe it. Roy and Sin, on the other hand, are ...

If you mean Ned Gerblansky, he isn't dead; at least, he was still around as recently as 2013, appearing in the episode World War Zimmerman. When Cartman went to Jimbo's store to buy a gun, Ned was there behind the counter, looking bored: Ned, however, didn't have any lines since 2001 (unless you count the video game The Stick of Truth released in March ...

Tony cured Pepper. Tony perfected Extremis to regrow his breast bone and ribs which were cut open in a circle for insertion of the electromagnet/arc reactor. So, he needed a perfected or reversible Extremis to perform the surgery because of the missing bones and then to be cured of Extremis afterward. I believe without Extremis that he would die from the ...

TLDR: She intended to kill herself, but wanted to wait for Nick to be publicly lynched in the media - but she changed her mind as she believed herself to be guiltless and thought she didn't deserve to die. Long Answer: Whilst this is Movies & TV, this entire answer is composed of quotations from Gillian Flynn's original book, Gone Girl, as it is ...

He doesn't appear to have a name. Interestingly, TV Tropes lists this as a meaningful rename trope: The name is the thing, and the true name is the true thing — so if the name changes... Some names have obvious meanings but often, this is done when it is not the original name for the person, place or object, but rather, a new one given by ...

He calls Pride "King" because that is his nickname. It is explained in the NCIS (mothership) episode that introduced the New Orleans team, "Crescent City", Season 11 Episode 18: Down in NO, LaSalle explains to Brody how Pride got the name King: When Pride first opened up the New Orleans NCIS office he made a big drug bust and a local crew made him ...

In the introduction scene of Ronan, he said to a Xandarian Because I do not forgive your people for taking the life of my father, and his father and his father before him. A thousand years of war between us will not be forgotten. Clearly this looks a solid motive to me. Revenge for his family. I don't know about the actual comics but in the movie ...

Well, SpongeBob has a date of birth: July 14, 1986. If we assume that the series takes place in our times, that would make him 28. However, Bart and Lisa Simpson have been 8 and 10 for more than 20 years now. So if we assume that his age is constant in the show (which premiered in July 17, 1999), that would make him 13. Is that data useful in this cartoon? ...

IMHO there are two pieces of evidence strongly suggesting the answer to this question is no: Julianne Moore appears to be about the same age in both movies. But in "Carrie" her daughter is a high-school senior, while in "Don Jon" the daughter would not have been conceived yet. The timelines don't seem to mesh. "Don Jon" and "Carrie" are two different ...

As you said, Dennis is ostensibly a psychopath and sociopath. One of the main forms of satire that the show has used is to mock the manner in which most formulaic sitcoms have progressed from season to season, where the cast and characters become more and more beautiful and interesting and one-note. For example, with Seinfeld, you can see Kramer's ...

I haven't read anything official that would point to this, but I do believe that the shift in Oliver's moral convictions was planned from the start. In the first season, Oliver's alter ego was called The Hood. The Hood had no qualms in killing people he thought deserved it. Come the second season and Oliver has a change of heart. One of the first things he ...

"When you little scamps get together you're worse than a sewing circle. " That pretty much says it all. Mia was obviously involved in the dirty side of Marcellus's business and it was clear she felt whatever happened to Rocky Horror want anybody else's business.

The only people who know the reason are Marcellus and Antwan "Tony Rocky Horror". So here's my theory, but needs little explaining. After Zed incident, Marcellus tells Butch the only people that will ever know about the "incident" are himself, Butch and Zed (though not for much longer once he tortures him to death.) Sound familiar? I think Tony Rocky Horror ...

For the same reason that Ra's Al Ghul's regeneration and resurrection abilities have been reduced to trickery, allusions and a mere philosophical immortality of his presence and why various plot elements or characters were changed from the comic source material. To bring him more in line with the movie's style, atmosphere and setting. Nolan's take on Batman ...

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 ...
