Spoiler from S06E02 Davos Seaworth's purpose of saving Jon Snow's body get cleared in next episode, S06E02. He has seen Melisandre doing cool weird magic stuff, like giving birth to shadow monster etc. So Davos seems to have the plans to call Melisandre for help from start, that's why he is trying to save the body of Jon for resurrection. Which he did even ...

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 ...

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 ...

A Few episodes back the Arrow showed Oliver and Barry standing by the grave with caption that said 6 months later that might mean something

My interpretation is that she was feeling kind of safe there or simply wanted to rest for once. She undressed. Taking off the necklace and taking off the fake appearance could simply be parts of witches casual undressing routine. I mean your "take off necklace to reveal her true identity" is just a speculation. Maybe she doesn't have to perform any ...

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 ...

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 ...

Maybe it's just their dress code, also if you observe closely they all had some white ash looking powder smeared on their head, so i think it's safe to concur that because the heat was too much a short or trim haircut is a better choice and also ash acts like a natural cooling substance, Maybe just maybe

It was about her death and those she would leave behind.

Mr. Poopy Butthole is the first parasite. He fits Rick's initial description, he's a zany wacky character that "pops up" and after uncle Steve is killed more parasites are created which propels the plot. Mr. Poopy Butthole embeds himself into the intro scene, as though it were our (the audience's memories) like he's been part of the show all along which ...

Purely tactical. They only bring Max because it's necessary. Slit and Nux argue about it, that Nux doesn't have time for a top-off and that the blood - bag is feral, muzzled because he's dangerous. There is only 3 spots they could put the blood-bag. Nux's interceptor is a modified 1934 Chevrolet 5 Window Coupe. A 2 seater normally. But there is only room ...

I know this is a slightly old question, but- I've decided that Vision can only pick up the hammer because technically, he's an inanimate object. He's not exactly a human who can be worthy of Mjolnir, so I hint it's kinda the same as when Thor hangs the hammer on a coat rack in one of the Thor movies, I forgot which one.

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 ...

Because then he couldn't bring her back in the epilogue, the quintessential plot twist that R.L. Stine books are known for. Of course he could have written the book in a very detailed way, but then the plot of the story would be different. Of course, Zach only wrote the ending, as R.L. told him to, so he missed the subtle details that a writer would have.

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 ...

This is fairly simple, OP even stated the anwser in his question. When Murphy see her, she is an hologram inside the mansion, meaning she uses an holographic device to communicate with her new guests. Once they take the pill, the holographic program is able to make you see her while others who didn't take the pill won't be able to. If I'm correct, this is ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

Sloppy continuity work...forced by dog lovers. They would complain if the dogs got killed. Director decided to just make the dogs disappear.

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. ...

There are several clues that people in Braavos all know who the people of the many faced god are, and fear them (or at least, want to be thought well of by them): When Arya was in Braavos last season, and was threatened by some street bravos, they slink away on recognising one of the faces of the kindly man who takes Arya in. This suggests that not only ...


-1

I think the first explanation is incoherent - really, what does it mean: '... jumping back to the past... ...where there is no time travelling' ??? I think the explanation has to be that one can only change history through time travel if the altered history is internally self-consistent, from a causal perspective; otherwise the altered history 'collapses' ...

I had the same reaction when I saw it, it was weird. I assumed the people who were watching the fight just didn't want to get the same treatment Arya was receiving. If I remember correctly, the people watching were principaly some peasants with no combat training, it would explain why most of them just acted like nothing special happened. If I saw a street ...

Here's a practical answer. In Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry and Hermione move the time turner three times to go three hours in the past. By the time Tom Riddle turned into Voldemort, he was probably 18. So anyone who wants to kill Voldemort would have to move the time turner for 10*365*24 times, in order to kill Tom Riddle who wasn't powerful at all when he ...

chronology: Jaime sails off dorne heading for Kings Landing, accompanied by Bronn (who's completely not seen in E1/S6 by the way), Trystane and dead Myrcella two of the three Sand Snakes head also for King's Landing, some time behind Jaime's vessel. The third one and Ellaria stay in Dorne asap, Jaime writes to Doran about Myrcella's death. Just this ...

Since everyone else is speculating, I would speculate with this: She uses potions to hide her true self. I'm pretty sure her necklace can be filled with the miracle potion, meaning that she doesn't need to ingest any potions when she wears it. See the necklace as a intravenous solution that injects her her needed dose. This might be wrong, but just like all ...

Cooper travelled through dimensions, one of which was time. That's about as simple as it gets. The complexity lies around the whole "causal loop" thing that's so common in time travel stories. The stories in the Back to the Future series are obvious (and simpler) examples.

The same question was asked earlier today: The medallion doesn't seem to be her only/main source of power, as correctly answered above. She clearly states that she has potions that can disguise people. In the novels: In the scene with the necklace we can also see one of her potions on her table.


5

The necklace is apparently not Melisandre's only source of power, and the fact that we got to see a shot of a vial of who knows what, leads me to think that maybe the bottle is even more important than the necklace.

To be honest it looks a bit like a stylized map of Blackwater Bay (rotated), with Dragonstone and Driftmark being the main islands in the bay. Some of the details are definitely off, but that could be consistent with imperfect maps and perhaps some distortion in the making of the seal and then some more in the way the seal came out this time, the angle ...

Prince Trystane was assassinated while on a ship that was docked at King's Landing several weeks after the assassination of Prince Doran. The episode doesn't really make this clear, because events in Game of Thrones can be quite apart in time, despite being shown in a linear fashion. You are completely correct. The events in Dorne do appear to happen ...

It's a direwolf and just another representation of House Stark. It's obviously not the official Stark sigil as mentioned by rand al-thor. The official Stark sigil: A grey direwolf on a white field However the Starks do use other imagery: In the episode Mockingbird, Hot Pie creates a loaf of bread in the shape of a direwolf to represent House Stark. ...

If they wanted to come back for the car they would have simply kept the key. Like Andrew said, they didn't need the car. What they needed were the clothes. For them it was simply a fair trade.

Victor Hugo's piece is a very interesting piece theologically, especially looking a Javert's death. Javert represents the Old Testament, the Torah. He lives the law, and he is the law. Jean Valjean represents the new law, the New Testament, the law of love and mercy. Just as in the Bible, both laws cannot coexist; one has to be done away with, one has to ...

Because the boy recognized them as cartel. Just after the boy asked about and then realized what the "little silver things" were on the tips of the cousin's boots, the cousins looked at each other. As if to say, "not only did the kid recognize that we are cartel, he also essentially announced it to all of the passengers, so we have to kill them all. right ...

In the source novel, their actions are described thusly; When he peeped out in the lightning-flashes, he saw that across the valley the stone-giants were out and were hurling rocks at one another for a game, and catching them, and tossing them down into the darkness where they smashed among the trees far below, or splintered into little bits ...

My theory is that the giants are the remnants of an ancient guardian race created by Morgoth to defend against the coming of Orome. The misty mountains were raised by Morgoth long before the first age of middle earth began. This was to hinder the riding of Orome (one of the Valar) and prevent the newly awakened elves from journeying west to beleriand and the ...

My feeling was that the man came on way too strong. He tried to barge his way into the car (prompting Luke to lock it), swore loudly and just frankly came across as a massive liability. He stated that he wanted one of Luke's lights (which were roped together and not easy to split up) but he didn't offer any positive reasons why Luke should risk his own neck ...

Those were rescue hounds, not the same kind of dogs Bolton used last season to chase down and kill his target. The dogs most likely got frightened and decided to bail since their trainers just got killed by a large intimidating soldier (Brienne). Remember, Bolton need Sansa alive, never Bolton would have sent dogs to find and kill her. The dogs' mission ...

Based on the Talking Dead after the episode, they cleared up what happened. The bullet glanced Carl, and chips from shattering bone provided secondary damage to the eye. No internal penetration of the bullet. No brain trauma. Period. So none of the gunshot to the brain statistics matter. "The bullet kind of catches that bone as it comes down right ...

Andy couldn't write in the letter the name of the town he was going off to because that would give his whereabouts away to anyone who just might happen to run across the letter. Say some kids found it and showed it to their folks. And then they went ahead and gave it to the local authorities. After a little investigating, they just might discover the author ...

I have not read the books, so that might be more informative as to what is going on but I have a theory. These men do look like prisoners, half starved and wearing rags. I believe it is within the realm of possibility that the prisons, some or just one for the real heavy crimes, give an ultimatum to the prisoners; kill the Mountain in a fight and win your ...

There is precedence for "holding" as shorthand for anything nefarious, specifically guns, ie "holding heat" but drugs for sale or share is the most common

I believe that being raised as a wight requires active work on the part of the Walkers; I don't believe anyone killed by a wight will resurrect themselves automatically. Beyond that, I don't think we know all of the details about how that process works, what's required, etc. The only time, as far as I can remember, that we've seen it at work is the huge ...
