I can think of at least three reasons: Superior training and equipment of Stannis' army – We must remember that, despite the wildings' apparent ferocity, they are still just civilians with no formal military training, makeshift weapons, and no armor to speak of. Certainly they would have no experience repelling heavy cavalry assaults, and it's not ...

Mix milk of poppy in their food and when they are asleep change the chains. Risky yes but might work. Milk of the poppy is a medical drink, used as both a painkiller and an anesthetic. Higher doses will induce unconsciousness, so patients can undergo surgery. Maesters make it from crushed poppy flowers and it has a white color, hence "milk of the poppy". ...

Zack Snyder (the film director) has stated that Batman v Superman would take inspiration from the Frank Miller comic, The Dark Knight Returns.1 The biggest deal was, Snyder brought out Man of Steel actor Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) to use his cool voice to read the following piece of dialogue: "I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years ...

The machine didn't get it wrong. The POI was the judge. Reese does think it was wrong at first: Reese: Finch, what's the son's name again? Finch: Samuel Gates Junior. Why? Reese: I think we've been following the wrong Sam Gates. Reese says it because the son is then kidnapped. But the machine identified Sam the father because he's the victim of a ...

He used his Batman voice to tell Rachel about the Joker coming and Dent had his back facing Bruce the whole time before he fell unconscious, so he didn't hear Bruce's real voice or see his face the entire time making it likely that Dent thought it was Batman.

Ok, since it seems no one else wants to touch this one, I'll take it. She is wiping up the semen. After sex, semen doesn't stay inside a woman very well. Especially when she's standing, as gravity pulls it down. To prevent semen from dribbling down her leg and staining her pants (or skirt; I don't remember), she wipes it up, much like she would wipe after ...

Your supposition in post-script #1 is accurate: Varys appears to support the attempt to assassinate Danaerys, but secretly tries to make sure it fails. In a later episode, Jorah gets a message from Varys. In the show, I think the message merely says that he's been pardoned and can go home, but I believe we're supposed to interpret that as a coded message ...

To understand Babadook's powers/abilities, one must know, first of all, what exactly the Babadook is? Is it an evil spirit, a mythological monster, an actual creature or just a symbol? Babadook is the impersonation of Grief & Problems. The wikipedia entry itself answers a lot of questions Writing for the Daily Beast, Tim Teeman contends that grief ...

Here's my theory: You're right about the conversation being normal up to that point. But also notice that Doctor Williams' conversation with his wife is normal until he mentions Belgium. His wife is perplexed by the concept of Belgium just like the governor is perplexed by the concept of releasing prisoners, which makes me think that Voorman did that too. ...

Unlike the books, Ser Loras is not part of King Joffrey's Kingsguard, and this status has not changed with the advent of King Tommen. He was indeed part of King Renly's Kingsguard, but with Renly's death his vows were not renewed to Joffrey. This was a change in the story since in the TV universe he is the only Tyrell son, unlike the books where he was the ...

Malvo first posed this riddle to Gus in episode 4, and later in that episode Molly gave Gus a clue ... she talked about how predators created a need in the prey to differentiate between shades of green so that the prey could protect themselves. So, when Gus hearkens back to this riddle in the finale, he's essentially telling Malvo he's figured out what sort ...

There are much more things to consider here apart from just head count. First of all, as you already identified, Stannis is an excellent general which might give him a little strategic advantage. While Mance Rayder might also not be that unexperienced, the wildling army always seemed to me to be more of a motley crew specialized in brute force, mere ...

Stannis' army was made up of professional soldiers (including mercenaries and knights), while the free folk are notorious for their disorganization. On top of that, Mance Rayders army was attacking a force of 700 or so men and was completely caught by surprise when Stannis and his army hit their flank.

I don't think it is plothole. To open a Bank account you would need to provide certain details with which the identity of the person who is opening the account can be determined. Now imagine if you are a bad guy would you prefer to give out your account number to a government personal, with which you could be traced. You will also expose all the other ...

Well, Riggan didn't actually jump off the roof or fly, those were just manifestations in his mind. If you recall, it was somewhat implied that he flew right to the theater and walked in, and then you saw the taxi and realized he must have taken the taxi to the theater since he can't really fly.

What I think he meant by that was, that because of the Arrow, Vertigo actually became more popular. By stopping it he just made it more exclusive. I remember the papers running about Arrow and Vertigo in the previous encounters. What it could also mean is that by creating an antidote, The Arrow actually forced the maker to increase its power, making it ...

First thing, In Gotham, they have made characters different from the other incarnations. Most of the characters look like in a gray era, they didn't choose any side yet. Like Nygma, Cat etc. This Alfred also looks like in a grey era, he is a good guy with some darkness inside too, which might appear in future episodes. Alfred's nature towards Bruce has ...

I think plain and simple it's a "fourth-wall" thing. He was waiting for the dialogue card to roll in when the policeman started talking to him, as was the premise of the movie. When this didn't happen he was confused, it felt as if he was ostracised not only from the hollywoodland world, but from this same "The Artist" picture altogether. Thus he decided it ...
