He is obviously not Moriarty He most certainly is Moriarty. On the left is a picture of him, and on the right is the "chained guy" you describe: The Moriarty in Sherlock's mind palace appears to have lost his composure and gone a bit crazy, which is why they don't look identical, but to me they're still clearly the same person. Wikipedia and TV ...

From villains.fandom.com: In an alternate reality, Batman became a ruthless anarchist after his parents are gunned down by Stalin's police force, vowing revenge on Pyotr Roslov and 20 years later became the most wanted man in the Soviet Union. From wikipedia we learn that Pyotr Roslov was the head of the NKVD. He shoots a dissident couple (batman's parents)...

According to Villains Wiki (sigh), Peter Weyland was born on October 1, 1990 So by 2093 (when the ship arrives in the orbit around LV-223) he is 103 years old. His attitude towards his daughter has nothing to do with his age specifically; he's shown to be an arrogant / selfish individual seeking only immortality for himself. That's just his attitude with ...

It is absolutely Moriarty! However I think the reference is to another fictional character who uses the Jesuit principle of the Memory Palace. In the book Hannibal (sequel to Silence of the Lambs), we read how Lecter keeps his "Monsters" chained the basement of his Palace, I always assumed this was a deliberate homage. In addition, writer Mark ...

She didn't have one. It is never mentioned before she became Hofstadter. From Wikipedia… Penny is the only main character of the program whose last name was not revealed, although she has been occasionally referred to or addressed with the last name Hofstadter since her wedding.

No, the character of Salino is not at all crucial to the plot of The Sting. Rather, Salino murdering the competing hitman, Hooker having a brief affair with a "random" waitress, and then Hooker subsequently nearly being assassinated by her, are all merely colorful sub-plots that - though consistent with the main plot - in no way advance the main ...

John Leguizamo explains: Some of the shocks came specifically because of Netflix's unexpected cancellation announcement, which was a detriment to the storytelling that the three creators had planned. One particular character who suffered the woes of story-minimizing was John Leguizamo's intimidating Ozzy Delveccio, who met a most gruesome fate late in the ...

He destroys the virus that way: It’s life-and-death drama, but it resonates to the show’s emotional core, too. William’s acting selflessly when he contracts lassa so no one else has to (there’s something messianic about those wounds in his palms, right?) but that means Elizabeth’s work with Young-hee and Don was definitively in vain.

As far as Jesse knew, he was wanted. He had little trust in law enforcement and his one contact with law enforcement is killed in front of him. He was being treated as a wanted criminal so his instinct was to flee.

If you watch the part where Poppy, Branch and Biggie sing the pop mashup in the country western town, Branche's hair is purple and his skin is a brighter blue. I think that singing makes Branch happy so his colour goes bright. But when he isn't singing, he is in his normal negative self so his hair goes black and his colour dulls. All the other trolls in pop ...

There was another episode where Kelly was in the hospital fighting for her life and they showed Charlie dressed in scrubs and a surgical mask looking at her through the glass window of her hospital room before walking away.
