Charles Albright explaining the 1984 Stephen King novel “Thinner”. Albright developed a deep obsession with eyes during his childhood, specifically women’s eyes. The Eyeball Killer would grow up a career criminal that murdered three women by shooting them and then precisely removing their eyeballs which were never recovered.
The removal was done to such a degree of accuracy that forensic pathologist Dr Elizabeth Peacock who performed the autopsy believed it to be the work of a surgeon. She stated “I would have to say there would be some skill involved. There was no disruption of the eyelids overlying the eye sockets.” Albright would have used a knife and slid the blade beneath the eyeball itself and cut the major muscles connecting it to the socket. A very difficult task to do without damaging the socket or eyelids in any way.
(Sorry but I couldn’t not include all of them!!! Headcanon: the Crystal GERMS brought all them back to earth, then managed to heal Jasper; our team is SO HAPPY to see her uncorrupted, they forgot any formalities… )
SO I was being a cliche and writing a screenplay in a Starbuck’s when I noticed these young women at a table nearby, sort of furtively eyeballing me and whispering in Japanese. This continued for a couple of minutes, and the only words I could make out, repeatedly, were “Nick Miller.” It struck me that, while I don’t think I look A LOT like Jake Johnson (Nick Miller on New Girl), I AM an almost-attractive scruffy white guy with a couple of days stubble on his face and permanently sleepy-eyed?? So when I got up from my table to grab a refill I awkwardly moonwalked out of the room Nick Miller-style and they LOST THEIR SHIT.
It’s Day 1 of the Jaspball Bomb. Today’s theme is…
I hope you enjoy this 8track music playlist I made in that theme. Their first meeting would be quite emotional, and with that in mind this playlist has overarching themes of their trauma from the gem war, corruption, being stranded, but they won’t stop fighting for closure. They will find closure.
I find it hard to digest mysteries/crime thrillers in which the detective obviously has superpowers, but the show pretends they don’t. ‘Observation’ and 'reasoning’ and 'intelligence’ are great, but when the detective’s powers are so overblown that the explanations are clearly afterthoughts… I’ve already lost interest.
If you can’t make the detective’s reasoning actually logical, just make them a damn psychic with zoom-and-enhance eyeballs.
Summary: Their first meeting? Stars, that’s hard to say… Because how do you really explain that it wasn’t like most meetings? Most meetings, you take the step quickly - one minute you don’t know each other, you’re not a part of each other’s lives. And then BAM! The next minute you are, and everything is suddenly different because of it.That wasn’t the case for them. But the beginning, I suppose, would have been something over 5,000 years ago, in a small bunker located in Facet 6…
