SEE it NOW!! Scream 2x1 - I Know What You Did Last Summer

Season 1

Okay but it seems to be the morning when the whole team machine meet over the bridge so does it mean that Root spent the entire night in that park, gun to her chin, talking to Shaw? Talking to Shaw so she would know she is okay, reassuring her, calming her, tell her it’s all real, that she is here with her and she is not going anywhere, not letting her go, not again, not ever

‘You can’t arrest the commander of an army!’

'Actually, Mr. Vimes, I think we could,’ said Carrot.  'And the army, too.  I mean, I don’t see why we can’t.  We could charge them with behavior likely to cause a breach of the peace, sir.  I mean, that’s what warfare IS.’

Vimes’s face split in a manic grin.  'I LIKE it.’

'But in fairness our–that is, the Ankh-Morpork army–are also–’

'Then you’d better arrest them, too,’ said Vimes.  'Arrest the lot of 'em.  Conspiracy to cause an affray,’ he started to count on his fingers, 'going equipped to commit a crime, obstruction, threatening behavior, loitering with intent, loitering WITHIN tent, hah, traveling for the purposes of committing a crime, malicious lingering and carrying concealed weapons.’
—  Terry Pratchett, “Jingo”
(And the thing is, we laugh at this because the idea of Sam Vimes arresting two armies IS funny.  But on top of being funny–and on top of Vimes trying to pile on the charges here with this list–Pratchett intended with this book above all else to characterize war as, in itself, a crime.  In this case, a war started because of a lie and because of racial/ethnic/national prejudice.  But we’re meant to be thinking about this.  When is war NOT a crime, when you get down to what most people think crimes are?  Why is killing people okay and legal when it’s war, for one thing?  Why is it legal to loot places when you conquer them?  Why isn’t it murder and theft?  Well?)

'How To Get Away With Murder' season 3 spoilers: Spotlight shifts to Michaela

The spotlight on the Keating Five is set to shift in Michaela’s (Aja Naomi King) favor in the upcoming season of “How to Get Away with Murder.”

Last installment, Wes (Alfred Enoch) was pretty much the focus of the storyline with the revelation of the identity of his father. Wallace (Adam Arkin) was revealed to be the law student’s dad, although Wes did not get the confirmation he needed. Wallace was shot by an unidentified gunman during the finale just when he and Wes were finally face to face. The new season is expected to continue the said plot, with Wes once again dwelling on the “what ifs” and “maybes” of life.

Aside from Wes, the other members of the Keating Five will also get plenty of airtime, as executive producer Pete Nowalk reportedly plans to expound on their own storylines. Laurel (Karla Souza) and Connor’s (Jack Falahee) backstory will be revealed, according to Entertainment Weekly, as well as Michaela’s. In the past two seasons, viewers only knew her as a top student and Annalise’s (Viola Davis) number one fan. Among the others, Michaela was the one who craved her professor’s praise the most.

Her relationship with Caleb (Kendrick Sampson) had been tumultuous and she had Asher (Matt McGorry) waiting in the wings. With Caleb now gone, having killed himself after the reveal that he was the one who murdered the Hapstalls’ parents, Michaela will likely shift her attention to the other man. According to Nowalk, Asher’s personality made him the best choice of being any girl’s “security blanket.” As to whether Michaela will go to him, the EP said it would be a toss-up on whether she really wants a new relationship or not.

“What does Michaela want? She has ended up with really vapid guys. She needs to really look in herself and see if she wants to be in a relationship and what kind of relationship that is. We have so much to explore with her. Aja is so talented. I’m just excited to really delve into her personal life next year,” he shared.

Meanwhile, another character that will be on the spotlight for season 3 is Frank (Charlie Weber). After betraying Annalise, he is officially on her blacklist. Annalise told Bonnie (Liza Weil) during the finale that Frank has to go. Morning News USA posits that it was a direct order to kill him. Bonnie has already shown that she is capable of murder after what she did to Wes’ girlfriend. Will Frank have reasons to be afraid of her in the new installment?

“How to Get Away with Murder” season 3 is expected to return this fall on ABC.
