“If You Have Ghosts,” True Detective season 3’s fifth and best episode to date, provided us with an enormous amount of evidence (and more literary allusions) to dig through. Like we do every week, we’ll break the episode down scene-by-scene, and then we’ll examine the themes and evidence in more detail. It’s all right there in the episode, but it’s so often fleeting. Our shared meticulous viewing, friends and neighbors, is paying off. We may have solved a big part of the mystery. Roland, Wayne, the cops and Tom Purcell in the Police Station, 1990 The first shot of the episode shows evidence pinned to a corkboard, including a printout of the woman we believe to be Julie Purcell in 1990. The police put an APB on the woman they suspect to be Julie. It’ll go to Oklahoma (where the Walgreens robbery happened in Sallisaw), and Missouri, in addition to Arkansas. But this time they’re getting what they want — the public … [Read more...] about True Detective season 3 episode 5 ‘If You Have Ghosts’ watchthrough
Lori on walking dead
True Detective season 3’s fourth episode, “The Hour and the Day,” is downright biblical. As we do every week in our watchthrough, we’ll look for clues in every scene and then assemble our knowledge and examine the themes — including some of the most damning (circumstantial) evidence against our (least) favorite suspect to date. Wayne and Roland at church, 1980 Wayne and Roland go to St. Michael’s Church of the Ozarks to visit the Purcell’s pastor. He’s also the person who took the First Communion photograph of Will. He says he didn’t see much of the Purcell parents — though when he did, it was usually Tom. Again, we’re left with the impression that Lucy Purcell was aloof mother at best. (And let’s be honest: maybe something much worse.) The priest remembers Julie being excited about seeing an aunt. Thing is, Julie doesn’t have an aunt. The man of the cloth also identifies the strange corn husk dolls. … [Read more...] about True Detective episode 4 recap: the mystery, suspects and clues so far
We are now only days away from Rick Grimes' fifth and final episode in The Walking Dead season 9, as Andrew Lincoln pays his dues and says his goodbyes to the zombie show he's been leading for almost a decade. But that leaves one final, very important question: How will Rick leave The Walking Dead? Death seems like the obvious option, but there's also the possibility of a healthier, safer exit for the character, who's given so much to AMC's dwindling flagship show. That said, The Walking Dead season 9, episode 4, left poor Rick in a very bad place, but the details of how the character will be leaving the show still remain up in the air and very much under wraps. Below, we run down our best and boldest theories about how Rick will leave The Walking Dead, including some of the wackier ones that we secretly hope don't turn out to be true. Have a read, and see if you agree with any of our predictions.It'll be Negan who eventually kills RickFor the past two seasons of The Walking … [Read more...] about How will Rick leave The Walking Dead?
Rick’s definitely leaving in The Walking Dead season 9 but the big mystery is whether he’s riding off into the sunset or rummaging through walker guts. Now, we might know the answer. Entertainment Weekly has the lowdown on Andrew Lincoln’s final day on set and, while it may involve terrible Annie Lennox karaoke and some old faces cropping up, it was pretty much business as usual for the actor until a very final-sounded scene – one that could come to define the character. Possible spoilers follow…You ready? As described in the scene, ‘Rick will walk through a pile of bodies – many nameless to Walking Dead fans; some, not so nameless’. Goosebumps. But, more than that, answers. No-one’s ever had a happy ending involving walking through a pile of limp bodies, no matter how many messy student union nights ended with you face-down in a ditch at 5:45am.In fact, the whole thing reeks of Metal Gear Solid 3. Bear with me a moment but – … [Read more...] about Is Rick dying in The Walking Dead season 9? Andrew Lincoln’s final day on set may have given us our answer
Believe it or not, The Walking Dead is losing its leading man Rick Grimes sooner than you think. Sob. Andrew Lincoln confirmed his departure from the long-running zombie series at San Diego Comic Con 2018 and it’s looking likely that it’ll happen during The Walking Dead season 9, episode 5. While it’s pretty hard to imagine the show without Rick, the bigger question is how it’s going to happen? While death by Walker seems like the most traditional way out for the former Sheriff, it’s doubtful AMC will go for something so obvious and with new showrunner Angela Kang promising a bold “new show” and “new narrative” this season, we might see Rick bow out in a more surprising way. To stem the tide of grief we’re feeling over his departure - and to keep us going until the new season begins - we’ve tried to predict how Rick will leave The Walking Dead with our top five theories on his exit. Read on and decide which you think is … [Read more...] about How will Rick leave The Walking Dead season 9?
