The 100: Our Two Biggest Questions After Season 6, Episode 9

The 100 season 6, episode 9, “What You Take With You” featured the exit of a longtime cast member and character, and it also raised some questions going into the final stretch of the season. After a short break for Fourth of July, The 100 returned with an episode that focused on redemption as well as the past, bringing back and showing off characters who have died and actors who are no longer with the show.

In The 100‘s “What You Take With You” episode, Octavia struggles with coming to terms with what she’s done and how she can move forward even though everyone hates her, including her brother and herself. And on the other end, there’s Kane who doesn’t know if he can live with himself knowing what has been done to him. It’s interesting to see this theme play out in this way, especially since it’s something Clarke had to go through on her own earlier this season.

Just as Gabriel says towards the end of “What You Take With You”, things are about to get weird leading into The 100 season 6’s final episodes. And while not too much has been left off the table for fans to wonder about, there are still some questions regarding what happened in The 100 season 6, episode 9, “What You Take With You”, as well as what it means for the show’s future, including the forthcoming season finale.

After taking Gabriel’s drug/concoction, Octavia started to see similar things that she saw approaching the Anomaly. And as Pike expressly mentions, Octavia chose the red box, so she has to suffer the consequences of that decision – at least in this hallucination. So with that in mind, what was in the green box? Could those memories or experiences have been tamer in comparison to seeing Pike and Lincoln die, and seeing herself as Bloodreina? It’s possible, but we may never find out.

Kane took all of the nightblood with him when he floated himself, so what does that mean for the Primes? Now that Kane is gone, Abby may not have a willingness to help the Primes, especially once she finds out what happened to Clarke. It’s actually astonishing that Raven hasn’t told her yet, considering what Raven is trying to avoid is what exactly happened to Abby’s daughter. Without the nightblood, the ability to make more Primes goes out the door (or the airlock?). That should mean the Primes are now on their way to actual extinction.

Game Of Thrones: 25 Strange Things That Happened Before The First Episode

The last Game of Thrones season is right around the corner. In fact, fans have been patiently waiting for its return. They’re eager to see how the show will end. On the other hand, fans are sad to see the show go. Of course, fans watch the show closely and don’t miss a thing. They catch each hint and clue. A lot has gone on in the show. At the same time, a lot happened before the first episode. The show has a rich history that impacts current events.

The show has a loyal and large fan base. Since the start, there have been many questions. Indeed, there have been many strange events. For instance, Jon Snow coming back to life or Bram time traveling. It sometimes feels that things can’t get any stranger. Of course, anything can happen in the show. Nobody is safe. Well, there were many strange events before the show. In fact, those past events help explain a lot.

The history of Westeros and Essos is vast. It includes great wars, peaceful kings, dragons, giants and mad kings. The history is dark and sad at times. It also has some brighter moments of peace and happiness. The show’s myth and history are just as interesting as the show itself. In fact, it’s crucial to the show. It’s time to take a closer look at the Seven Kingdoms, The Free Cities, The Wall, and beyond. Here’s Game Of Thrones: 25 Strange Events That Happened Before The First Episode.

25 The Dawn Age

The Dawn Age goes back roughly 8,000 years. During that time, no humans lived on Westeros. Living there were only the non-human Children of the Forest and Giants. A small number of Giants still exist. The Children of the Forest were small creatures with magic skills. The prayed to the Old Gods and carved their images in the woods. In fact, they built small hidden villages in the trees. There is very little information from the Dawn Age. Soon the First Men arrive and start a war with The Children.

24 The Regin Of Aegon The Unworthy

There have been many kings in the history of the Seven Kingdoms. Some kings had a peaceful reign that brought happiness to the world. Then there’s King Aegon IV or Aegon The Unworthy. He’s the worst Targaryen king in the history of the world. He was king from 172 to 184 AC. In fact, he might be the worst of them all. He was mean, vindictive, and petty. He could have treated his people and family better. His time as king is a low point in history.

23 The Tales Of Dunk And Egg

The Tales of Dunk and Egg is a prequel series that takes place before the show. In fact, it takes place 90 years before the show itself. The tale also exists in the show. It follows the adventures of Ser Duncan The Tall and his Squire Aegon “Egg” Targaryen. Egg later becomes King Aegon V or Aegon the Unlikely. They go on many adventures during a time of great tensions in the Seven Kingdoms. Dunk and Egg meet during a tournament and begin their adventures. Eventually, Aegon becomes King and Dunk becomes the Lord Commander of the Kinghtsguard. Their story ends at the Tragedy of Summerhall.

22 The Great Spring Sickness

The Great Spring Sickness was a plague that swept across Westeros. The sickness wiped out a good portion of the Seven Kingdoms. King’s Landing lost the most amount of life. The only two areas that avoided the sickness were the Vale and Dorne. They were able to keep people and the sickness out. Dunk and Egg go on many adventures during that time. They’re able to avoid the sickness by hiding out in Dorne. Unfortunately, the rest didn’t have that choice. The sickness features in the Dunk and Egg story.

21 Slaves Rebel And Found Braavos

To the east of Westeros is Essos. It now consists of the nine Free Cities but at a time was under Valyrian control. In 500 BC, slaves rebel against their Valyrian master and take over the fleet. They sail to the furthers point and end up in a lagoon. Large mountains and trees hide the area. It’s a series of connected tiny islands. The slaves create the secret city of Braavos. Eventually, they come out of hiding. The city also includes the Iron Bank.

20 Old Ghis’s Burned To Ashes By Dragon Fire And Never Rebuilt

The Ghiscari Empire ruled over Essos some 5,000 years ago. They built many great structures and were firmly in control. The city of Old Ghis was the center of their power. Of course, that all changes when the Valyrian find dragons. They soon defeat the empire and take control of Essos. In fact, they even burn Old Ghis to the ground. They poison the soil and sea to ensure it never raises again. The empire crumbles and the city fades away. It simply becomes a memory.

19 Aegon V Arranges Marriages For His Kids

King Aegon V had his good and bad times. He was good to his people but it didn’t always work out. For instance, he planned a series of arranged marriages for his kids. Of course, it was really about politics. He was trying to secure his power. Well, his kids had other plans. Instead, they all marry for love. In fact, he also married for love so was powerless to stop his kids. Clearly, he was happy for his kids. At the same time, it weakens his rule.

18 Aegon V Lowers Taxes

Turns out that it doesn’t take a big betrayal to start a war. In fact, Westeros is just like any other place. Indeed, dragons and giants aren’t the problems. The real issues are taxes. Aegon V’s reign was a good time for the Seven Kingdoms. However, there was a conflict. At one point, Aegon lowered taxes on the poor and raised taxes for the rich. It only made him more popular with the poor. Of course, the rich didn’t like that. Eventually, it turned several rich nobles against him.

17 The King Of The Wall

During the Age of Heroes, The Lord Commander of The Wall proclaims himself King of The Wall. In addition, he fell in love with a woman from beyond the wall. History implies that it might have been a white walker. He soon earns the title the Night’s King, which is not the same as the Night King. The Night’s King and Queen held strange rituals and sacrifices. Eventually, people began to fear them. The King Beyond The Wall and the Stark King in the North teamed up. They defeat the Night’s King and restore order.

16 The Tale Of The Rat Cook

The tale of the Rat Cook is a myth in the Seven Kingdoms. It’s a story of a king that visits the then main castle of the Wall, the Nightfort. Somehow, the King offended the cook so he decides to get revenge. He bakes the King an alarming pie that really hits home. The gods punish the cook by turning him into a big white rat. To be clear, the gods did not turn him into a rat for baking that disgusting pie. In fact, it was because he was a terrible host. Arya Stark bakes a similar pie in the show.

15 The Dance Of Dragons

The Dance of Dragons is the first full-scale civil war in the history of the Seven Kingdoms. In fact, it’s the first war that has dragons on both sides. It took place from 129 to 131 AC, which is about 170 years before the War of the Five Kings. It was a war between two rival Targaryan factions. Rhaenyra Targaryen was the only heir to the throne but the Kingdoms never had a Queen before. Instead, King Aegon II took control with a coup. Eventually, he let his dragon take care of the would-be Queen.

14 A Stark Won Bear Island In A Wrestling Match

There have been many great wars in the Seven Kingdoms. Not all wars have dragons and giants. The Stark’s have always been a powerful family in the North. At times, they’ve even been the Kings of the North. Of course, they’re also loyal when there’s one ruling King of the Seven Kingdoms. The Starks always end up in interesting situations. During the Age of Heroes, Rodrik Stark beat an iron-born for control of Bear Island in a wrestling match. The Starks then gave Bear Island to House Mormont. There are worse ways to win an island.

13 Nagga The Sea-Dragon

The Iron Islands are like a separate world from the Seven Kingdoms. In fact, they have their own culture and religion. They pray to the drowned god and are the only ones too. Of course, dragons are part of almost every myth and story. As a matter of fact, the Iron Islands have sea dragons. Nagga The Sea-Dragon is the first sea dragon in the Iron Islands history. According to legend, the Grey King beat Nagga and built a great hall out of the bones. Indeed, he uses her fire to warm the hall.

12 Aegon III Dislikes Dragons

The Targaryen’s are famous for using dragons in battle. In fact, dragons are a big part of the culture. At one point, they were the only ones to have dragons. Indeed, they used three dragons to conquer Westeros. Turns out not all of them liked dragons. In fact, King Aegon III disliked dragons. As a young boy, he witnesses a dragon end his mother’s life. Therefore, he disliked and was afraid of dragons. The last remaining dragons didn’t survive his reign. In fact, he gets the blame for dragons becoming extinct. He attempted to hatch the last dragon eggs but failed. He earned the title Aegon The Dragonbane.

11 The Targaryen’s Can’t Conquer Dorne

From 2 BC to 1 AC, the Targaryen’s conquered Westeros and created the Seven Kingdoms. They would rule over the Seven Kingdoms for three centuries. At first, it was just the Six Kingdoms. That’s because they couldn’t conquer Dorne. The area’s hidden behind mountains and giant trees. Therefore, the Dornish were able to win using guerilla tactics. In fact, they were never able to defeat Dorne, even with dragons. In the end, they joined in through marriage. When dragons don’t work, marriage will.

10 Peaceful Shepherds Discover Dragons

In 6,000 BC, The Ghriscal Empire ruled over peaceful shepherds. Of course, that would soon change. Shepherds were busy working when they made a startling discovery. They found dragons lairing in the 14 Fires Volcanoes. Soon the shepherds would use magic to tame the beasts. This was the birth of the Valyrian Freehold. They use the dragons to rise up against the Ghriscal and destroy the empire. They went on to conquer all of Essos. The myth of dragons became very real only to become a myth again.

9 Lann The Clever

Lann The Clever is an infamous trickster during the Age of Heroes. According to legend, he tricked House Casterley out of their castle. To be fair, there are different tales of how he really did it. For example, one story claims he infested the castle with rats or lions. Another story claims he snuck into the castle and caused mayhem. He turned the members of the house against each other through pranks. It’s also possible that he simply marries into the family. He’s also the founder of House Lannister.

8 The Long Night

In 8, 000 BC, The Long Night hit the world. The winter season lasted an entire generation and destroyed all the fields and crops. In fact, most of it was all buried in snow. Of course, that wasn’t the worst of it. The white walkers emerged and attempted to bring a permanent winter. They also put an end to life. This resulted in the War of the Dawn. The Children and the First Men joined to defeat the white walkers. They were able to send them to the north most part of the world.

7 Children Of The Forest Disappear

As noted, there was a time when the Children of the Forest were the only ones living in Westeros. However, they were still a small population. The war with the First Men and later the White Walkers cost The Children a great deal of life. Eventually, they started to disappear and became extinct. In fact, in the show, there is only one in the world. Aside from the wars, there isn’t an explanation to why they disappeared. Initially, they simply went into hiding and become a myth.

6 The Doom Of Valyria

In 200 BC, The Targaryan’s took control of Dragonstone. They were a powerful family in the Valyria Freehold. They move to Dragonstone to run it for the Freehold. Aenar Targaryen moved his family because of a vision he had. He saw a horrible event that would cause a great deal of destruction. His vision ends up right. In 100 BC, The Fourteen Fires Volcanoes erupt destroying Valryia and the Freehold. The Targaryans are the only surviving family of the Valyrian Freehold. In fact, they’re also the only ones with dragons. This leads to the conquest.

5 Aegon The Conqueror Invades Westeros

As noted, from 2 BC to 1 AC, Aegon The Conqueror invades Westeros. He flew in on three dragons with his wives and unified six of the seven kingdoms. They would go on to rule for three centuries. However, Aegon did this instead of helping the Free Cities in Essos. The Valyrian Freehold lost all of its power and the people were in need of help. Aegon put Essos behind him and began a new quest. They defeated the most powerful families and even the Starks fell in line. It’s a bit odd that Aegon wouldn’t help the Free Cities.

4 The Building Of The Wall

The Wall is one of the most famous structures in the Seven Kingdoms. It’s 700 feet tall and stretches 300 miles along the Northern border. The Wall consists of solid ice.  It separates the Kingdom from the wildlings beyond the wall. Of course, the original intent was to keep the White Walkers out. Bran The Builder built The Wall in 8,000 BC after the Long Night. According to legend, he built the wall using magic, giants, and manual labor. This leads to the creation of The Night’s Watch to maintain and protect The Wall. Bran went on to found House Stark and build Winterfell. However, The Wall is his greatest achievement.

3 The Legend Of Azor Ahai

Azor Ahai is a mythical figure in history. According to legend, he led the army to defeat The White Walkers and put an end to The Long Night. He’s one of the greatest heroes to live. With his famous sword Lightbringer he was able to defeat the enemy. As the story goes, Azor Ahai is to be reborn and once again save the world from the White Walkers. It’s also possible that he’s the Prince That Was Promised. As a matter of fact, there’s a good chance this myth will come true.

2 The Children Create White Walkers And Lose Control

As noted, the first true war was between The Childen and The First Men. It was a costly war for both sides but The Children were clearly losing. With no options left they create the first White Walker. The idea was to use the White Walkers to defeat the humans. However, The Children lost control of the White Walkers and they turn against them. The Children and the First Men came together to defeat the White Walkers. They agreed to a pact when they realized they had a common enemy. It wouldn’t be until much later that Bran Stark discovers The Children create The White Walkers.

1 The Reign Of The Mad King

King Aerys II is the final Targaryen to sit on the Iron Throne. They had ruled the Seven Kingdoms for three centuries. His reign as king started on a positive note but soon it fell apart. He became so paranoid that it earned him the nickname The Mad King. He began making irrational decisions and trusted nobody even the Hand of the King. Then his son Rhaegar Targaryen apparently stole Lyanna Stark. This set off Robert’s Rebellion. Of course, Rhaegar and Lyanna were in love and secretly marry. At the same time, The Mad King lost complete control. He set in motion a plan to burn King’s Landing to the ground. However, Jamie Lannister stopped him. The Mad King’s only surviving heirs is his daughter Daenerys and grandson, Jon Snow.

The Flash Season 5: 11 Biggest Questions After Episode 19, “Snow Pack”

The Flash season 5, episode 19, “Snow Pack,” picks up the pace and raises a whole host of questions. The Flash season 5 has been a strange one, carefully attempting to balance multiple overarching plots at once. In theory, the threat of Cicada should be the A-plot; in reality, the more intriguing mystery has always been Nora Allen and her partnership with Eobard Thawne.

The various plots are building to a climax at last. The truth about Nora has finally been revealed, and last week her father decided to take her back to her own time. Given Barry knows he’s destined to disappear, he’s basically told his daughter that he doesn’t ever want to see her again, and that she can never have a relationship with the father she’s always longed for. In “Snow Pack,” the Flash’s actions push Nora straight back to Thawne. It looks as though Barry has played right into Thawne’s hands. Meanwhile, back in the present, Future Cicada is hatching plans of her own – which presumably involve the deaths of a lot of metas.

Related: The Flash Reveals Barry’s Last Moments From Crisis On Infinite Earths

“Snow Pack” is an odd episode, only because both of these major stories are relegated to secondary status in an episode that focuses in on the relationship between Caitlin and her father. The show uses Caitlin’s tortured family background to hold up a mirror to Barry, and make him realize just what a mess he’s made of his own family. Still, it seems rather an odd decision, in that viewers will be far more invested in the episode’s sub-plots than in the main story.

The Negative Speed Force is lifted straight from the comics, a twisted version of Flash’s Speed Force created to be the yin to the Speed Force’s yang. It’s an extradimensional field of negative energy that eats away at the Speed Force like a cancer. Thawne himself was the source of the Negative Speed Force, which was composed of every negative emotion; his jealousy, his pain, his rage, and his greed. The Flash‘s version of the Negative Speed Force appears to be identical to this in almost every respect; Thawne claims he created it, and Nora accesses it by tapping into all her most painful emotions. It’s clear that a speedster who accesses the Negative Speed Force can use it to do everything a normal speedster does with the Speed Force. Nora is able to use it to travel through time – without her father even being aware she was doing so.

The experience of tapping into the Negative Speed Force appears to have had a profound effect on Nora. When she returns to 2019, her eyes are blazing with a crimson light, and her usual lightning colors have been replaced with deadly red. It’s reminiscent of Geoff Johns’ The Flash: Rebirth, which saw Barry Allen himself corrupted by the Negative Speed Force. He became a host of its energies, and through him the Negative Speed Force attempted to consume all sources of Speed Force energy around him. In The Flash: Rebirth, this was Thawne’s masterplan; to turn Barry into the ultimate weapon against his friends and family, to transform him into the one who killed everyone he loves.

It’s possible that this was Thawne’s plan for Nora all along in The Flash season 5; to manipulate her into a place where she would choose to tap into the Negative Speed Force, and where she would become host to its powers. What more fitting weapon could Thawne find to use against Barry Allen than his own daughter?

Surprisingly, Thawne appeared to actually care about Nora – to the extent that he gave Iris tips that should help Team Flash bring Nora back from the Negative Speed Force. This is certainly an unexpected twist, a reminder that even the Reverse-Flash isn’t completely irredeemable. It does make a strange kind of sense, though; Thawne is on death row, and Nora is one of only two people who’ve visited him in the last 15 years. There’s a sense in which she’s seemed to become almost like a daughter to him, and he really does appear to value the fact she keeps coming back to him for advice. This emotion could potentially compromise all of Thawne’s plans – whatever they may be.

The last episode of The Flash, “Godspeed,” revealed that Nora had always been obsessed with Cicada – the one case her father never solved. Now she’s closer to cracking the case than ever before, but it’s all gone horribly wrong. Future Cicada has traveled back to 2019 and is wreaking havoc. Nora considers herself responsible, and her obsession has led her to believe she’s the only one who can put things right. Unfortunately, it’s entirely possible that the Negative Speed Force has now given Nora another mission; one of wrath, of rage, and of vengeance upon the father who cast her aside and told her she could never be a part of his life.

All this flows from Barry’s spontaneous decision to return Nora to her own time, and tell her to stay there. It’s easy to understand his logic; he’s already come to care so much about Nora, only to discover that she’s been working with Thawne the whole time. In the Flash’s view, Nora is primed as a weapon to be used against Barry and his family. He has no idea how to handle this, he believes he’s already been outmaneuvered by Thawne, and the very fact his daughter trusts the man who killed his mother is tearing him apart. In truth, Barry’s decision wasn’t a strategic one; it represented the fact that he was in too much pain, and simply wanted to run away from it.

Iris, meanwhile, is entirely correct when she argues that Barry doesn’t have the right to make unilateral decisions that affect the whole family. The Flash tends to act first and think later, and however heroic his decisions usually are, they don’t allow his loved ones the time to process them and work through them with him. In this case, not only did Barry not consult with Iris, but he didn’t even give her a chance to say goodbye to her own daughter. Iris is fearful of the future, aware that she’s destined to have a strained relationship with Nora, and this could be the one time in their lives when they truly bond. Barry most certainly didn’t have the right to make this decision without talking it through with Iris first, and he showed a blatant disregard for his wife’s emotions.

Meanwhile, Future Cicada is continuing to enact her own plan – and it apparently involves her past self. Cicada has kidnapped the comatose young Grace from hospital, and at this stage it’s impossible to know the reason. Still, this serves as a salutary reminder that Cicada is still a threat, and that she isn’t just stranded in the past; she has a purpose, one that Team Flash need to work out as quickly as possible.

Page 2 of 2: Even More Questions From The Flash Episode “Snow Pack”

Cicada’s purposes for Grace appear to involve a mysterious piece of technology she’s stolen, the Cryo-Atomizer. Again, it’s unclear why; the Cryo-Atomizer appears to be able to create metahumans (of the Killer Frost variety), while Cicada is dedicated to killing all superhumans. Presumably the Cryo-Atomizer has other properties that have yet to be explained.

Disturbingly, in “Snow Pack” Team Flash reach out to all manner of government agencies for help in hunting down Cicada – and nobody is willing to step up. Given Cicada is an active serial killer who has no qualms about murdering anyone who gets in her way, this is pretty startling; it suggests that, in the Arrowverse, the United States Government doesn’t see why it should help metahumans. It’s possible the chaos of the last few years has made the Government hostile to superhumans, and they don’t mind Cicada thinning the herd a little. Indeed, if that hostility remains over the decades, it may well explain why Cicada is able to continue killing even in Nora’s time; because the Government doesn’t care about metahumans being murdered, and consider other deaths to be collateral damage.

The main villain of “Snow Pack” was Icicle, Caitlin’s father, who had long believed to be lost beneath his monstrous alternate personality. In the end, though, when Icicle was about to kill Caitlin it gave Thomas Snow the strength of will to break through in order to save his daughter. It was a beautiful inversion of the Flash/Nora plotline, with a father’s love overcoming the barriers and reuniting the Snow family – even if only for a time.

The tragedy of Thomas Snow’s death at last reunites Caitlin and her mom, but it’s clearly setting up another crisis for the Snow family. Icicle subjected Carla to the power of the Cryo-Atomizer in order to give her a dangerous alternate ice-personality as well. Team Flash believe they interrupted the experiment before it got too far, but the end scenes suggest they were too late. Caitlin conducts tests on her mom, but walks away before the results become visible – indicating Carla Tannhauser is now a meta. This presumably means that Carla will develop an alternate personality as well, and if so she could be a very dangerous opponent for Team Flash further down the line. Icicle was an isolated figure, a rogue scientist who longed to cause chaos; Carla is a world-renowned bio-engineer, and head of a multinational corporation. She has the potential to be a major threat.

One final sub-plot saw Sherloque wrestle with the question of whether he should return to his own dimension. Sherloque still doesn’t truly understand why Team Flash are upset at him over Nora; he doesn’t quite get that the Flash family view his secrecy as a kind of betrayal. But he still does care about Team Flash, and he won’t let them down in their hour of need. It’s that love that ultimately leads him to choose to stay.

Legends of Tomorrow: 6 Biggest Questions From The Narnia Episode

Here are our biggest questions from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow “The Eggplant, The Witch, and The Wardrobe” – the Chronicles of Narnia-themed episode that isn’t set in a magical wonderland as much as it is an IKEA-like superstore that’s a manifestation of Ava Sharpe’s personal purgatory.

When Sara Lance learns the demon Neron kidnapped Ava, she risks her life to rescue Ava from her Swedish superstore purgatory, in which each furniture showcase allows the couple to examine and work out their relationship issues. (They do, at one point, assemble a magical wardrobe.) Meanwhile, John Constantine and Nora Darhk team up to imprison Neron at the Time Bureau and learn he abducted Ava to serve as the vessel for a mysterious new enemy named Tabitha. While that’s going on, Nate Heywood and Ray Palmer visit the construction site of Heyworld, the late Hank’s magical theme park, and Nate ultimately decides to allow his father’s dream to continue. Meanwhile, on the Waverider, Mona, Mick Rory, and Charlie offer their unsolicited help to Zari Tomaz as she tries to compose the perfect text to ask Nate out on a date.

From Zari learning what the eggplant emoji means to Neron’s magical temptation of Nora Darhk, here are our questions from Legends of Tomorrow‘s latest episode, “The Eggplant, The Witch, and The Wardrobe”:

6. How Long Until The Legends Notice Ray Isn’t Himself?

At the end of the episode, Neron left Desmond’s body and took over Ray’s. The goody-goody Dr. Palmer loves the troubled Nora and thinks of himself as her white knight but he blundered and ruined Nora and Constantine’s plan to stop Neron. As a result, Nora was injured fighting Neron, who seemingly disappeared. Unfortunately, the Legends are terrible at noticing when Ray is in trouble – last season they didn’t even know the Darhks took Ray hostage – so who knows when they’ll realize it’s really Neron rooming with them on the Waverider and not The Atom?

5. Who Is Tabitha?

Tabitha is coming, but who – or what – is she? Neron spent two weeks preparing Ava to be Tabitha’s vessel and he seemed nonplussed when the Legends saved Director Sharpe – he’ll just have to find a new one. Neron did, however, admit he never wanted Hank’s theme park and his plan for the magical fugitives was to use them to corrupt human souls for him to take. When Tabitha arrives, Neron plans for them to take out John Constantine for good.

Tabitha doesn’t seem to correspond to any magical villains in DC Comics so she could be an original Legends of Tomorrow creation like Ava Sharpe, Mona, and Gary Green. However, the idea that demons from Hell need human hosts to exist on Earth is lifted from the Hellblazer comics, specifically Hellblazer Vol. 4: The Good Old Days.

Related: Legends of Tomorrow: The True Story Behind The Nixon And Robert Redford Episode

4. Can Damien Darhk Return?

Neron tempted Nora to his side by suggesting he can bring her father Damien Darhk back to life. Nora didn’t fall for it, but Damien is certainly missed. Formerly the Big Bad of Arrow season 4, Damien really became a fan favorite when he began menacing the Legends of Tomorrow, turned into a neurotic father to Nora, and then sacrificed his life to Mallus to save her. Damien is deservedly in Hell but fans would love to see Daddy Darhk back for an encore of “Return of the Mack”.

3. What Can Nora Darhk REALLY Do?

Another intriguing tidbit is Neron asking Nora if the Legends know what she can really do, to which she replied, “They have no idea!” Since she was a child, Nora was prepared by the Order of the Shrouded Compass to be the Earthly vessel of Mallus. Nora may be even more powerful than anyone imagined. She even told Neron, “I don’t need your power, I have my own.” It’s possible Nora Darhk might be the most powerful magical being in the Arrowverse.

2. What Are Ava’s Unresolved Gary Issues?

Ava’s subconscious idea of purgatory includes Gary perpetually present and Ava admitted she “may have some unresolved Gary issues”. Gary is Legends of Tomorrow‘s most love-him-or-hate-him source of comic relief but it’s clear that except for Sara, Ava has no friends outside of the Time Bureau. Gary is probably the closest thing she has to another friend and his eternal loyalty has to be the reason why he hasn’t been fired yet.

1. What Did Zari’s Original Text To Nate Say?

Typically, a third of the Legends team was completely preoccupied with helping Zari send a text to Nate. She started with a boring “Hey, what’s up?” but before long, Mona had her using copious emoji so her text was nonsensical: “U up, hot dog, donut, thumbs up“. Unfortunately, Nate never saw the final text Zari did send (because of the usual excuse that his phone was smashed by a wrecking ball) but we also never got to see the absurd, aborted emoji-filled missive which was a team effort by the Legends of Tomorrow.

Game Of Thrones: 10 Characters Most Likely To Die In Episode 3

Another episode of Game of Thrones is done, leading us closer to the finale. Episode 2’s “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” was a surprisingly quiet, character-centric episode which set the stage for the Battle of Winterfell set to take place in Episode 3.

Anyone who thought the final season has been slow up until this point are probably going to get more than they bargained for with this next episode. The battle against the Night King promises to be a bloody one that will mean the deaths of some key characters. And Episode 2 helped give some hints to who might not make it to Episode 4. Here are the characters most likely to die in Episode 3 of Game of Thrones.

10 Ghost

Direwolf fans were excited to see Jon’s pet, Ghost, finally make a reappearance after so long. The show has been pretty sparring with how often they use the direwolves, choosing to spend more time and money on dragons. And while it is great to see Ghost again, the show reminding us he’s still around is probably not a good sign.

The show seems to take any opportunity to kill off the direwolves just to get them out of the way, and a massive battle with the undead seems like a pretty good opportunity. Bet on Ghost rushing straight into battle and taking a few of the enemies down before dying himself.

9 Gendry

Gendry’s reintroduction to the story last season was a welcome surprise and fans were eager to see him reunite with Arya after so long. That reunion culminated in the two finally getting together in Episode 2 as they face the impending doom. That might be what seals Gendry’s fate.

Everyone knows that falling in love right before a major battle puts a character in danger. While Arya is in the same boat, we could see her fighting her way out of this to live another day. Gendry, on the other hand, has done his part to help create the weapons and there’s not much left for him. Sadly, he is expendable.

8 Beric Dondarrion

Technically, this wouldn’t be the first time Beric died, but he’s likely to stay dead this time. Ever since Thoros of Myr died, Beric lost his path to resurrection and it seemed like only a matter of time before he was gone for good.

Given his faith in the Lord of Flight, you can bet Beric will be front-and-center in the battle with his flaming sword. He seemed far too excited about the coming fight in the last episode so we’re sure he’ll go out fighting in service to his god.

7 Dolorous Edd

Dolorous Edd is one of the most surprising characters to have made it this far in Game of Thrones. While the other Night’s Watch members dropped like flies, the cynical Edd always seemed to find his way out of trouble.

It’s nice that the show gave him the opportunity to reunite with his sworn-brothers, Jon and Sam, so they could reminisce about how far they’ve come and what they’ve been through. But that’s probably going to be it for Edd. He’s had a good run but with the Night’s Watch no more, he doesn’t seem like someone that will last much longer.

6 Tormund Giantsbane

Tormund is one of the craziest characters in the show. The wildling warrior is as insane as he looks, and that insanity has served him well thus far. He’s survived climbing the Wall, the Battle of Castle Black, the Battle of the Bastards and the collapse of the Wall. But even a madman like Tormund will have a tough time making it through this next fight.

Tormund got a fair amount of screen time in the last episode, continuing to flirt with Brienne and even getting to share his origin story. Now seems like the right time for him to finally meet his end.

5 Missandei

Grey Worm and Missandei have long been a background love story in the show. After Daenerys came to Westeros, their roles as her trusted advisers began to shrink considerably which always puts characters in danger. They pretty much guaranteed something bad would happen after making plans for the rest of their lives together in Episode 2.

While it would make sense that Grey Worm would die, considering we’ll be doing much more fighting, it seems more poetic that it would be Missandei who perishes. He death might then lead Grey Worm to fulfill his promise to go protect the people of Narth.

4 Theon Greyjoy

Theon Greyjoy is one of the most complex characters the show has had. While his arrogance and stupidity did a lot of damage earlier in the series, he has slowly been on the path of redemption ever since seizing Winterfell.

It makes sense that Theon would find his final redemption in his former home, this time fighting to protect it. His reunion with Sansa helped remind us of his past good deeds and his volunteering to protect Bran from the Night King pretty well cements his fate to die with honor.

3 Jorah Mormont

Jorah Mormont has been a key character in the series since its beginning, and we could previously have seen him surviving to the end. However, given his appearance in the last episode, it certainly feels like the show is setting him up for his last stand.

We saw Jorah put aside his feelings for Daenerys and counsel her to keep Tyrion as her Hand. We saw him help mend his broken relationship with his family while speaking to Lyanna Mormont. And we saw him receive a Valyrian steel sword from Sam. Armed with that weapon, we could see Jorah facing off with the Night King and losing.

2 Brienne Of Tarth

We don’t like it anymore than you do, but Brienne – now Ser Brienne – is a goner. She received a knighthood, something she has wanted forever, right before going into battle. That just spells doom.

Brienne is one of the most skilled fighters in this battle and she is armed with a Valyrian steel sword which gives her an advantage, but she is also going to be at the head of the army. With Jamie fighting beside her, expect the two to share a tender moment before she dies.

1 Bran Stark

Before the season began, we were promised that the Night King had a specific target in mind when he invaded Westeros. While there were plenty of possibilities, it has been revealed he has his sights set on Bran. It makes sense as there is a definite connection between the Night King and Bran and they seem destined to come face-to-face.

Bran elects to be the bait for their enemy, luring him out to be killed. However, nothing on Game of Thrones ever goes so easily so the Night King will probably succeed in killing him. With all the secrets now out in the open, having Bran and his abilities around any longer feels like a cheat.

Game Of Thrones Season 8, Episode 3 Trailer: The Battle Of Winterfell Is Here

The Battle of Winterfell is coming, at least according to the newest trailer for Game of Thrones season 8. The series has had its fair share of blockbuster-sized blowouts, beginning with the Battle of Blackwater and continuing on through the series with showstoppers like ‘The Watcher on the Wall’ and ‘Hardhome’ and the ‘Battle of the Bastards.’ This being the series’ final season, and the stakes being higher than they ever have been before (the fate of the world resting in the hands of the the armies amassed at the Stark family home will do that) it stands to reason that the third episode will pull out all the stops in order to rank as high if not higher than all that have come before. 

The episode will have plenty of time to leave its mark, as the previously released runtimes of season 8’s installments have revealed that episode 3 clocks in at a dragon-sized 1 hour and 22 minutes. That’s in addition to the series bringing in its resident battle master Miguel Sapochnik (who delivered both ‘Hardhome’ and ‘Battle of the Bastards’) to direct the battle and perhaps outdo even his own past handiwork.

That episode 3 would be the Battle of Winterfell was more or less assumed as soon as the details of the season started to come out, and it was essentially confirmed with the release of the episode’s runtime and the name of its director. And while the season thus far has been made up of character moments and narrative payoffs, all in an attempt to add emotional weight to the looming conflict, there’s still quite a lot that fans don’t know. And despite there now being a trailer promising yet another battle episode, HBO’s still playing things very close to its vest. Check out the trailer for the next episode below: 

Perhaps the most telling, and possibly unsettling, aspect of the new trailer is that, like all trailers for Game of Thrones season 8, the Night King is conspicuously absent. Episode 2 ended with a sizable army of White Walkers making their way to Winterfell, but the icy guy in charge was nowhere to be seen, much less his trusty steed, the reborn Viserion. Those two were last seen bringing down the Wall, and now their lack of screen time is beginning to feel as portentous as the Carpenter-esque screams of little Ned Umber in the season premiere. 

Still, even without the Night King or Viserion there’s plenty to wonder and speculate about with regard to what’s really going to go down at Winterfell next week. It’s undoubtable that many will fall — even some favorites — but even that may be eclipsed by whatever it is the Night King has cooking.
