So, my guess is that the hand-reaching scene is Kylo and Rey on Ahch-To. Rey looks very calm and resolute in Snoke’s throne room, so we can infer that she wasn’t taken there unwillingly. My theory is that whatever she and Kylo talk about on Ahch-To leads her to ask him to take her to Snoke (!) for answers, which goes pretty badly (cf. trailer torture scene) and ultimately leads to Kylo and Rey fighting the Praetorian guards and possibly escaping together, fates uncertain and paths abandoned.
That’s my guess, anyway, and I really, REALLY hope that’s how it goes down because Lord would it be epic. 🤞
CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW INCREDIBLY AND AMAZING WAS SAM ACTING ON THE “DID IT, I DID IT!” SPEECH??? HOW HE PORTRAYED DIRK TRIYING TO BE SO OPTIMISTIC BUT YET WE ALL COULD SEE HOW HE WAS SO DESESPERATING BREAKING INSIDE?? BC I CAN TELL YOU THAT SCENE GAVE ME FUCKING CHILLS, SAM BARNETT, BLESS YOU.
cmon I can’t believe it’s almost a month since stranger things 2 came out and we haven’t talked about how good looking was Winona in the exorcism scene, with her crazy eyes and the sweating white shirt, omgggg
That scene where Lena wanted to help and just be a friend to Kara but she refused that she didn’t want to talk about personal things at her job. Lena was a bit offended, so she talked to Kara as her boss and confronted her on her unacceptable behavior for an employee. But we can see the pain in Lena’s eyes…Their semi-fight though.. I just can’t…
so i was rewatching the new episode (2.06 | girl power) right now when i picked out something i missed before.
so during the initial scene of the rowdy 3 and amanda reunited in wendimoor, you can hear cross and gripps talking in the background, and cross said something about the “cubes” they found that caught my attention: “I just don’t trust cubes. There’s too many dimensions, it’s confusing!”
a cube has three dimensions.
This whole season has been focused around this “alternate dimension” of wendimoor, right? So as of this moment in the season, there are two dimensions — “reality” and wendimoor — so why would max add a third in there?
unless there’s already three we know about.
i’ve seen a theory going around about how there are actually two versions of wendimoor that exist right now: the one we’ve seen, and the one in the mural. in one, the mage has been victorious in all the major battles and has taken over most of wendimoor; in the other, the mage is perpetually defeated and the “good guys” always win.
i think this background cube line has something to do with this extra dimension, and i think the team is going to have to resolve this duality soon.
Okay but I remember Matt Hastings was the first who liked tweets about the Malec training scene and I was a bit skeptical if it's really gonna happen. But it is happening so he was talking about a malec rain kiss that means we'll get that too. #s3willkillus
i can’t believe they are giving malec every cheesy hetero trope and making it gay season 3 is so sexy 🥂🥂🥂
Are we gonna talk about the end of this season???? Bc WOW WOW WOW I was expecting the ending scene to be frank like covered in blood and grime walking off into the darkness as he makes his final escape or some shit like that but instead we got frank showing up early for group, helping set out chairs because he is so eager to take part, he is finally out here dealing with his trauma in a healthy way and talking about his feelings with people who will most likely understand him and protect him and can become a beacon of support for him FUCK ME UP THIS IS BETTER THAN I EVER IMAGINED THIS IS THE AFTER KAREN PAGE WANTED FOR FRANK
there were a lot of references in the new video, did you catch them all? let’s take a look.
1. nils sjoberg
remember that time she wrote a song with calvin harris but used a different name? this is that name, on one of the gravestones. after releasing that she had actually written the summer hit “this is what you came for,” calvin harris, among others, threw a fit on twitter - even though it had been agreed that if calvin and taylor broke up, she could express that she had written the song.
2. the out of the woods dress
this blue dress probably looks familiar! it’s the same one she wore in the out of the woods music video, the last music video of the 1989 era. this poses the same frantic question, are we out of the woods yet? as this grave-digging taylor suggests, not yet.
3. here lies 2014 met gala taylor
at first glance, it just looks like the taylor from before laying there, but after pausing it and going back, one realizes that isn’t zombie taylor, rather 2014 met gala taylor. 2014 would have been the start of the 1989 era, and the out of the woods video was the end of it, thus: by the end of 1989 era, she was ready to “bury” it.
4. the dollar bill
if you look just next to taylor’s shoulder, you can see a good ole george washington. one single dollar bill. is this a reference to taylor’s sexual assault trial recently, and the one dollar she won then? most likely, because if you go to other shots of her in the tub that aren’t directly above her, the dollar bill isn’t there, meaning it was edited in later, which would explain how it got there so late in the game. it stands for the simple victories everyone else gets to celebrate, while she does the same things and gets flack for it.
5. et tu brute
a famous line from shakespeare’s julius caeser, “et tu, brute” means “and you, brute?” right as marcus brutus lands the fatal blow in julius caeser’s, his once-friend’s back. this is a metaphor for all the people that taylor thought she could trust, before they turned around and trashed her name.
6. the tea
probably pretty simple to grasp - the tea is hot. alternatively, she, the snake in the video, gets to serve the tea this time around, or, she gets to lay down her side of the story.
7. car crash + paparazzi
did you see what happened here, at face value? taylor was in an expensive vehicle that got in a head-on crash, but everyone just stood back and took pictures, instead of rushing over to help. is this a reference to all the times that everyone stood back, took pictures, and laughed at her when she was beaten down? yes.
8. the grammy
the grammy blends in with the gold of the car and her outfit, so it’s pretty easy to miss, but there it is, in her hand, even though the car crashed. perhaps the future is being predicted?
9. the birdcage + leg tattoo
look closely at taylor’s leg, and you can see what looks to be a snake tattooed there. not to mention, here she is entertaining in a birdcage, which is guarded. she’s trying to have fun in this prison, biting her tongue, being the girl everyone wants, but she longs to be let free.
10. robbing a bank/stream co., blind for love
besides getting major harley quinn vibes, what else do we notice here? taylor swift robbing a vault, which says “stream company.” remember that time that taylor wrote an open letter to apple music and called her money hungry, even though she was taking her music off to benefit poorer artists? yes, we do. this is what she’s referencing here. also, her shirt says “blind for love” which makes sense, because she frequently refers to herself as a hopeless romantic, someone who opens theirselves up for love, even if it means getting hurt.
11. the squad
without explaining anything else, this scene can be described as a crowd of blank faced people, staring at taylor swift, who stands upon a stage looking menacing, and impressing one message upon the crowd: u, squad. it’s reminiscent of all the times people said taylor swift was over, because her friends, fans, or sales were fake or temporary. this is like a visual representation of the comments people made about taylor forcing people to do things for her to create the image she desired.
12. fake friends
and here we have the mannequins of the girls from the prior scene, chopped up. this one is pretty straight forward, these “friends” that taylor thought she had sometimes turned out to be more fickle and “fake” than she thought. also, can we talk about how taylor’s red boots are reminiscent of kinky boots? because yes.
13. the dancers, i heart ts
before taylor enters the room, the dancers are goofing around, but the second she comes in, the jump to attention, and rip off their jackets to reveal shirts that say “i heart ts.” it’s a throwback to when tom hiddleston wore a shirt with the same message on the fourth of july in 2016, and everyone said that she had forced him to wear it. it’s the same thing as before with the squad - the world decided that she had forced all these people to love her, not that they actually did.
14. the fight for glory
every time you pause this video, you come across a different taylor. squirrel pajamas wanegbt taylor, 2015 bbma’s taylor, 2014 acm’s taylor, wanegbt red tour taylor, 2016 new years rockin’ eve taylor, sparkly guitar fearless tour taylor, bleachella taylor, ballerina shake it off taylor, 2016 vma’s taylor… the list goes on and on. here, you can see them all fighting and clawing, trying to stand on top. it reminds me of “i don’t like your kingdom keys, they once belonged to me,” and the parallels between long live and new romantics in that line alone. all those times, she thought she’d made it to a point in her career where she could be respected as much as other artists in her tier, only to harshly realize she was going to get her name ran through the mud for doing the same thing as everyone else. the fight for glory is steep, and unfair.
15. junior jewels
looks familiar right? not quite! it is the same theme of the shirt, but look closely at the signatures - they’re signatures of actual people this time around. names like ed, selena, este, lena, blake, and ryan, among others, can be seen on her shirt, representing the true friends that stuck with her through her reputation being bashed.
16. “SHUT UP!”
here, all the different versions of taylor are repeating things that the media or other celebrities had said about her, until finally 2009 vma’s taylor repeated the same thing that 2017 taylor said in an instagram post - “i’d very much like to be excluded from this narrative.” the entire time, you can hear camera shutters going off and people chatting, presumably the rest of the world watching as she got torn apart. when vma’s taylor makes this final statement, all the other taylor’s, as well as what sounds to be an entire off-screen crowd, yell “SHUT UP” before the screen goes black. this is a powerful image, and it’s supposed to be. all the times she suffered, and people told her that she was overreacting, faking it, or doing it for publicity. if you feel remorse for seeing young taylor getting yelled at, or sorrow for the taylors falling when she said “because she’s dead,” you’re doing it right.
nothing in this video was an accident.
if you’re angry at taylor for this video exposing things you said about her, or you’re repeating any of the words the versions of herself said at the end, you’re proving her point. her reputation was destroyed because people made a sport of making fun of her. and now, as taylor said, there will be no explanation, just reputation.
So Magnus and Alec had a bit of a problem where Magnus was in Valentine’s body, and Alec didn’t believe him? And there was a lot of, sort of betrayal on that? And it didn’t really went anywhere? Is that something that’s gonna come back?
can we talk about the decontamination scene in s2 e4 is because
Keith pouting with his arms crossed because he’s not happy about this and he and Lance are side-eyeing each other because OF COURSE THEY ARE. poor Hunk is completely covered in squishy asteroids because Lance was using him as a shield the entire time.
Pidge hates every second of this. Keith is still pouting. Shiro has decided to set an example for good hygiene and Lance follows suit albeit much less enthused. Hunk looks up, amazed at the miracle that is water.
Keith is still pouting he hasn’t moved at all. Shiro continues to be a role model. Lance flashes back to every embarrassing moment in his entire life. HUNK IS HAVING SO MUCH FUN LOOK AT HIM
they’re uNDER WATER AND KEITH IS STILL POUTING WITH HIS ARMS CROSSED. Lance is surrounded by his own element and feels at ease, stickin his legy out. Hunk is goodness incarnate.
KEITH IS STILL DOING IT. Shiro is very relaxed I’m happy for him. Lance grabs onto Hunk for support to avoid getting blown away and Hunk is okay with it because he loves his friends. Pidge does not grab onto anythi
