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'd also wondered about this. I think it comes down to three things: He initially ended up with the Snow loyalists by chance. He didn't make a deliberate decision to go out of his way to side with them, he simply hauled the corpse into his room with them before it was 100% clear what had happened, because it was the closest suitable space. It looked to me ...

Spoiler It's pretty obvious from the blood on Fitts that he was the shooter. Also, there is a shot near the end of the film that shows Fitts' gun case sans a revolver which is seen earlier. These combined make it clear that Fitts is the shooter. Fitts believed that Lester was his son's gay lover. You may recall that there is a scene where Fitts sees his ...

The film's original script makes it abundantly clear that Colonel Frank shot Lester. INT. FITTS HOUSE - COLONEL' S STUDY - NIGHT The Colonel enters, still wet. He's wearing LATEX GLOVES. Flecks of BLOOD cover the front of his T-shirt. He paces nervously in front of one of his GUN CASES; the GLASS DOOR is open, and a gun is conspicuously missing ...

They're 'Spittoons'. The Garrison Tavern has ended up as a cross between an American speakeasy and a spit and sawdust British boozer. There is sawdust on the floor. As for the spit, a special recipe has been used to fill the metal spittoons at the foot of the bar, into which tobacco-chewing regulars would discharge. BBC Source

Their carrying the barrel rather than rolling it is to highlight their naïveté at this. It shows they have never done this before and have no idea if the logistics involved. There is a callback to this in a later episode where they are mocked for it.

Simple explanation, Trystane was sent back by Jaime to Dorne. The Princess Myrcella died by poison on our return journey. I suspect Ellaria and not you, but my sister will demand war. I doubt Ellaria's head will appease her but it's a start, along with your neices. Your son cannot stay in King's Landing so I am sending him back on the same ship. ...

From this site Pandora is the fifth moon of the gas giant Polyphemus (both are figures in Greek mythology), which orbits Alpha Centauri A in the Alpha Centauri star system, the closest star system to our own sun Alpha Centaury is about 4 light year from us, so way too far to have any observable gravitational effect on Earth.

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 ...

Unfortunately, there's not enough in-universe clues to sync the shows up, but most likely the answer is that Flash and Arrow are out of sync. There's a slim chance a future Flash episode will refer to this event, and we'll know for sure, but probably not. This isn't unusual, and in fact, the exact same thing happened last season. At some point, Flash ended ...

It's thematic for multiple reasons. It's a continuation of Steve's character plot. Is Captain America just a symbol, or a man? It ties into the overall plot of the movie. Who is the man behind the uniform? Contrast 'Who is the Winter Soldier' and 'Hydra infiltrating SHIELD'. It is a call back to The Avengers. Where Stark was Goading Tony into a fight: ...

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 ...

It is plausible that Shere Khan did not know that Mowgli was living with the wolves before the truce. When Khan arrives at Peace Rock he references a new smell (talking about Mowgli), and many of the other animals are shocked to see a mancub in the jungle. Animals probably kept to themselves as much as possible in non-peace times to avoid getting eaten and ...

They are called spittoons and, as the name suggests, they are indeed for spit. The reason the consistency could be 'mud-like' could be a combination of spit and alcohol being poured in throughout the night or when the barmaid clears the tables.

The continuity is even worse than the dogs disappearing... these are not the same hounds at all, Rasmey's "girls" that appear in the other episodes and then again tonight in Episode 2 are some kind of mastiff or pit bull type breed and do a VERY good job of acting vicious like they would tear someone to pieces. The ones in Episode 1 last week are clearly a ...

I think many are missing this crucial dialogue in the movie: Rita: I don't know what to say. Phil: I do. No matter what happens tomorrow, or for the rest of my life, I'm happy now. The loop broke when it was pointless to continue further: I think this is crucial. Each day before that one had the potential to be different, to be better; but not the ...
