    S07.E01: Beginning of the End

    I had somehow blocked Badison out and completely forgot that she existed, so when she popped up again, I had the same reaction.

    Who Killed Garrett Phillips?

    Mary Rain was so infuriating. My favorite part was when she was all incredulous that her friend had been selected for the jury and he would have made an honest and impartial choice, and then a few scenes later after Hillary requested a bench trial, the two lawyers were like "Of course he wasn't taking trial by jury, Mary Rain's friend was a juror for crying out loud!"

    S04.E08: Years, Continents, Bloodshed

    The way I see it, there are two sides to Veronica. The victim Veronica whose best friend was murdered and who was raped, and then there’s the self destructive Veronica who is her own worst enemy. Logan has always been the foil to self destructive Veronica, which is why I think he should have left her at the alter. By fridging him, he becomes another tally in the victim Veronica column, where the world is cruel to her, instead of her nature causing her world to implode. And that’s why I’m not really interested in a season 5 Veronica without catalysts like Logan, Keith, Wallace, and Weevil to engage different sides of her moral compass.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Matty got a YA book series or comic.

    S04.E08: Years, Continents, Bloodshed

    I could have done without the schmaltzy wedding and let Logan and Veronica live in disfunctional peace, but way to fridge a dude for once. The ending has left me in a total funk though, which is disappointing because it was an otherwise fun season.

    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

    It looks like a Father of the Bride reboot...

    Box Office

    I think Beauty and the Beast benefited from nostalgia, a less crowded box office, and the original version not having any iconic performances (although I really liked Jerry Orbach's Lumiere...) Will Smith is no longer the movie star he once was, so filling Robin Williams' shoes was an even greater task, even though I think he has the charisma to pull it off. Plus, they have The Lion King coming out in two months, which has far more buzz. They really should have pushed Aladdin back to 2020 or even Fall of 2019 to leverage off the Lion King hype.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I mean really all that petition is ever going to do is humiliate D&D. Maybe Star Wars will drop their trilogy like they dropped Colin Trevorrow. And maybe it will inspire GRRM to actually finish the books to fix the final story arc (although, I also fear that the poor response will kill any chance of the books being finished.)

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I just imagine them gathering for council meetings and Bran flatly saying "I'm going to go now" as his eyes roll back, and Tyrion just awkwardly going "Well, until he comes back then..."

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Didn't D&D announce that Ser Pounce was dead earlier this year? Or did we all collectively agree to ignore that?

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    This. Jon and Tyrion should be toast. Jon especially, because he's a huge threat to her reign, and he's now given her an excuse to execute him. I just don't see how they logically dig themselves out of the massive crater they've created in one episode. Dany has a bigger army and a dragon. Sure, Jon stabbing Dany is a logical step at this point, but once she's dead, her massive army and dragon don't just disappear, unless we find out that she was truly the fire version of the Night King, and all of her soldiers drop dead alongside her.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I’m still pretty sure she’ll appear as a (unfathomably prestine) corpse next episode. Tyrion would be able to surmise where she ended up since he crafted the escape plan, and Dany will want to make Cersei’s death unquestionable.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I agree that it's wrong, but Dany has no reason to trust that Cersei isn't laying out a trap. Cersei has cried wolf before, and Dany has chosen the moral path and lost, this time she's playing dirty like Cersei. I don't see it as being a heroic moment, but I also think the motivation makes sense as opposed to "Dany is cray, y'all!" narrative that they've been painting on thick both on the show and is spumors. I'm wondering if they're both mortally wounded and Jaime gives her the mercy kill to fulfill the prophecy.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Since Lena Heady sat out episode 2 and 3, she'll have to appear in episode 6 in some capacity to be eligible for award season. So even if a building collapses on her, it won't be the last we see of her... As for Dany ignoring the bells of surrender, why would she believe Cersei is actually surrendering, when Cersei has lied time and time again. It makes perfect sense that they'd keep on fighting until Cersei's head was on a spike.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I firmly believe D&D had on their bucket list "Bronn casually threatens Tyrion and Jaime with a crossbow" without planning any follow through or caring how they get there. Unless Bronn kills Cersei with the crossbow, which is possibly where all the CGI budget went to.
