Jafar wished to become an all-powerful Genie, and he got what he asked for. Jafar is an incredibly power-hungry person. We see he's already mastered at least some forms of magic (as demonstrated by his hypnotic staff), and we know that his position as Royal Vizier gives him access to the ear of the most powerful man in Agrabah - the Sultan. We also see ...

This is because she used a spear with dragonglass head. Dragonglass is a common name in Westeros for the substance known as obsidian, a form of volcanic glass. Along with Valyrian steel, it is one of the two known substances capable of killing White Walkers. Dragonglass is a substance that Children of the Forest use in their weapons. According ...

The Ironlanders are a little different than the rest of the westerners in that they believe to truly deserve something, you need to have paid "the iron price". In this case, the Ironlanders would have responded positively for a few reasons: The current king was not really doing anything special and they were being viewed as weak which would have been ...

Yes, the Night's King can create more, as seen in S4E4 Since this is a living human being turned, it becomes a White Walker. The Wights are reanimated from those already dead.

Genies are given power in exchange for servitude. When Jafar wished for the powers like Genie, he got his wish. But it's exactly like the saying "be careful what you wish for, you might just get it". Jafar got locked away until a master comes to let him out. Which happens in the sequel. And yes, Genie was freed using Aladdin's third wish, which he had ...

The book and show's Night('s) King are most likely different characters. So your base hypothesis to determine the sequence of events is wrong. In both versions it's still most likely the wall was built after (and because of) the creation of the others/white walkers. I say most likely because both events are ancient in context of the current story (8 ...

I'll preface this with the fact that I have not read the books, and if I am wrong on any of this feel free to correct me. Possible answers from what I gathered from the episode: A very small amount of time has passed between when Bran was touched and when the walkers arrived. Hodor and Meera are seen preparing their things to leave when the walkers arrive, ...

No, there's no significant connection between them. In fact, the Targaryen's didn't even worship R'hllor at all. In the show we haven't heard very much about Valyria in it's prime (yet), but I was unable to find any evidence that R'hllor worship was common in Valyria before it exploded. Valyria instead had it's own religion, where the people worshiped a ...

As explained on Reddit: Sha na na was a "faux retro" group that sang doo wop songs from the 50's (which is why Abe liked them). Bowzer was a popular member of the group (the joke in the show was a goof, however, because Bowzer didn't join the group until after their Woodstock performance in 1969). Jon "Bowzer" Bauman, as described on Wikipedia: ...

Tyler does not want the Narrator dead. He needs the Narrator to take the action because Tyler isn't real. Tyler spent the entire film manipulating the Narrator into taking those actions (well, at least when the Narrator is conscious), and knowing that the Narrator, though reckless, does not want to die, has to eventually directly threaten to kill him to get ...

Dexter wasn't just having sex with an unknown girl, he was having sex with the unknown girl that was playing his daughter the day before. As part of Dexter's scheme in killing his own daughter he hired the pink-haired woman to play his daughter as a ruse. Then at night he had sex with her, which Harmony's sister saw and thought that he was having sex with ...

What happened to Wolverine? He has been experimented for the Weapon X program and shows some memory problems/some kind of amnesia. He did not recognise her whereas she read his mind? He didn't recognise her because they never met before. In the old timeline they first meet during X-Men but now in the new timeline they meet each other way before. And after ...

Speculation, but the White Walkers were first created by being impaled while tied to a Weirwood Tree. Bran was Greenseering using a Weirwood Tree. As such, it may be that White Walkers are intrinsically linked to the magic of weirwoods and can feel the presence of their magic.

Spoiler: White Walkers (WW) are created by magic, their creators are the Children of the Forest. They are old Inhabitants of Westeros and they created the WW to protect themselves from mankind. Now, ages later, the WW and their leader Night's King, turned against their creators (a classic theme: creatures turn versus their creators). The WW though, as of ...

There is nothing to indicate that the White Walker shown being created, was created before the Wall was created. Or that he was a Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Or that he's actually the Night King. The show may diverge from the books in this, as the show has been known to merge or separate characters as needed. (Examples: The Sand Snakes, Jaqen and ...

To provide actual evidence, earlier in the film, first there is the voicemail that Tony leaves for Pepper: [Back at Tony's house, which is now surrounded by emergency rescue and news reporters, Pepper stands alone and looks at one of Tony's shattered Iron Man helmets, she notices a red flashing light inside the helmet and as she puts the helmet on she ...

From my understanding, they are in the Danger Room. And chances are that the are virtualised sentinels. It is also not the first time that we have seen this scenario. In X-Men : Last Stand, we see Wolverine and the X-Men train younger mutants against sentinels in the Danger Room. A Sentinel briefly appears during a training session in the Danger Room. ...

Bowzer is a nickname for Jon Bauman, a member of the band "Sha Na Na", who appeared at Woodstock. Conceived by George Leonard, then a graduate student in humanities, Sha Na Na began performing in 1969 at the height of the hippie counterculture, and achieved national fame after playing at the Woodstock Festival, where they preceded Jimi Hendrix. Their ...

My answer might be vague but consider this. 1.)The sentinels were decommissioned and Moira MacTaggert was Professors friend and most likely Charles did not erase her memory again.So maybe Government connections 2.)Or are you asking how he managed to fit in the sentinels in the mansion.Well there was a huge warehouse where they store the jet so maybe we ...

I think it's meant to be optimistic , looking at I from both ways shows the outcome of an optimist. The first shows the outcome of someone who is relying on the positive advice of friends The second could be looking at a positive option on death This is just the way I look at it

He didn't recognise her because this was the first time he'd met her. If you're asking why he didn't recognise her in the "future" (in the first X-Men movie), that's because the timeline has been altered. Jean managed to break through some of his amnesia, to give him back some fragments of memory. You hear a whisper of "Logan" when she is doing this.

Answer from user568458 focuses on in-universe explanation. Out of universe: this is what the writers said in the Inside The Episode featurette: The end of episode 6x04 was definitely meant consiously to echo the end of episode 1x10. It's Dany stepping out of the flame to great effect. This time it was just on a much, much larger scale. So it was ...

Stine had to stop writting when Slappy crushed his fingers(he was naming the creatures one by one... I bet to avoid technicalities that could lead to a character roaming free and also to ensure that Hannah would be out of the list, he thinks of her as his daughter after all) But then he gave the typewriter to Zack as he got swallowed by The Blob that ate ...

1) the title ealdorman or earl was only used in England by English governments. It was related to the Scandinavian word jarl, but no Vikings were ever earls, unless they were working in England for the King of England and were appointed earls by him. I don't know if you or the TV show is responsible for the use of "earls". 2) In English a heraldic emblem ...
