OK, after venting with @caprelloidea, I’ve come up with a headcanon for Sunday that I am going to cling to for dear life. In order to make Emma’s reaction in that sneak peek make sense and not be over the top, I am wondering if Gideon has left Emma a fake note from Killian where he tells her that he’s gone for good, that he can never forgive himself for his actions and she needs to move on. And he somehow hides the Jolly Roger with magic or something.
Cause without something like that…well, I guess we’ll see.
Someone get the new sneak peek clip on tumblr and/or gif it now because I am freaking out over agents “Stark and Martell” because honestly what the fuck John Bring. If Sam is Stark, as it would seem from the order of introduction it’s really perfect. There are so many Starks that have such a complicated relationship with honor and doing the wrong thing for the right reasons and then fucking everything up. This could be Sam this season, this could be him playing into the bad guys hands with his ideals - Same with Mary.
But Dean. Dean as a Martell. Who would be the most famous Martell? Oberyn. The extremely bisexual tragic hero. I just…fuck. John Bring gave us Dean being super fucking bisexual all over Gunnar Lawless and now he’s specifically fake naming him after a famously Bi character???
And that’s just the extradiagetic stuff. Think of this in world. Sam or Dean making those IDs and thinking: “You know who Dean is like…”
CW released the Official SNEAK PEEK clips from tonight’s episode! ~ With Alice’s first action in the Blue and Gold room with Betty & Veronica! Omg and Betty trusts Jughead enought to defend for his dad! <33
I just can’t stop grinning like an idiot because this is the moment we have been waiting for collectively as a fandom: the release of New Content™. Our fave beans are all together again and I feel so lucky to be part of a fandom where the EP/writer is so liberal with hints and sneak peeks and cute clips. It feels like every time I check my phone there’s another squeal-worthy Easter egg and I know it won’t be like this every day, but let me tell you, I can’t goddamn wait for all of this to unfold.
The Teen Wolf clip showed Scott running with voice overs from the hunters from Season 1 and 2 - the Argent family hunting werewolves. Scott stops and he’s with Malia and Lydia and he’s holding a bullet. He wants to get the bullet to Chris Argent, but they are all scared incase Argent shot them. Scott hears something, Malia and Lydia listen. It’s hunters. There’s like a million of them in the woods closing in on the three of them. They flee
me: I’m excited for Iron Fist and looking forward to watching it when it drops in a few days.
tumblr: IT HAS THE WORST REVIEWS OF ANYTHING EVER ALL THE CRITICS SAY IT’S BORING AND THE FIGHT SCENES ARE SHIT FUCK THIS SHOW I HATE IT SO MUCH!!!!!1!!1!!1
me: A lot of the criticism feels like it’s being blown out of proportion if you ask me. Jessica Jones and Luke Cage were dull at times too and the fight sequences in both were pretty lame TBH, and yet no one was really calling them out on that. It seems unfair that people are burying Iron Fist for things those other shows got a free pass on.
tumblr: HOW COULD THEY HAVE A WHITE GUY TEACH AN ASIAN WOMAN HOW TO KUNG FU DON’T THEY KNOW THAT A WHITESPLAINING WHITE SAVIOR IS WORSE THAN THE DEVIL DAMN THIS SHOW STRAIGHT TO HELL!!!11!1!1
me: Have you seen the trailers or the sneak peek clip they released of Colleen Wing beating two men by herself in a cage fight? It doesn’t look like she needs to be taught Kung Fu or “saved” at all. Quite the opposite in fact. Actually, it seems like there’s been an effort in the promotional material to make Colleen look like the traditional badass, whereas Danny seems more like an awkward fish out of water type. And Finn Jones even addressed the white savior complaint, pointing out that they were cognizant of that issue and that Danny isn’t trying to save anyone but himself.
tumblr: FUCK FINN JONES AND FUCK DANNY RAND THIS CHARACTER SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASIAN BUT THEY JUST MADE HIM A WHITEBREAD MAYONNAISE PEICE OF WHITE SHIT WHO IS SO WHITE I CAN’T EVEN THOSE RACIST SONS OF BITCHES!!11!1!
me: Isn’t that a little extreme? I mean, Danny Rand is a white guy in the comics and Marvel are going to want the main character of the show to look recognizable to fans of the comics because they know the fans get pissed off when you make unnecessary changes. Also, they’ve got an Asian woman as the female lead, which is pretty rare in television; that doesn’t sound like a casting decision a racist show would make. And from what I’ve seen, this show has more ethnic diversity in its cast than Daredevil or Jessica Jones did and I don’t remember anyone calling those shows racist, you know? It just seems like Iron Fist is being held to some kind of weird double standard because a lot of people are determined to hate it no matter what, in most cases, before they’ve even seen it.
tumblr: FINN JONES IS GARBAGE AND A TERRIBLE LEAD THE ACTING IN THIS SHOW IS SO BAD HE’LL LITERALLY WIN EVERY SINGLE AWARD AT THE RAZZIES AND BE LAUGHED OUT OF SHOW BUSINESS FOREVER!!1!!!11
me: Aren’t we getting a little ahead of ourselves here? I mean, Finn Jones certainly did everything required of him on Game of Thrones and I liked his performance on that show quite a bit. He’s been a good actor in everything I’ve seen him in, so I think I’ll just give him the benefit of the doubt until I see what he does with the role. Doesn’t that seem reasonable?
tumblr: BUT THEY CAST A SHITTY WHITE ACTOR WHO DOESN’T EVEN KNOW MARTIAL ARTS HOW COULD THOSE BASTARDS DO SUCH A THING I’M SO DONE!!!1!!!!1
me: You are aware that Charlie Cox didn’t know martial arts either before he was cast as Matt Murdock, right? But nobody made a big deal about it because TV shows have these things called stunt men whose job it is to perform the complicated fight choreography and things of that nature so the actors can focus on their acting. The guy who played the lead in that short-lived TV spinoff of the Blade movies from a few years back didn’t know marital arts either, but he trained for it after he was cast, so it wasn’t an issue. Same deal with the cast of the Matrix movies. This kind of thing happens all the time. And by all accounts, Finn Jones has been working really hard to learn Kung Fu, so he can do as much of it himself as he can and make it look good for the show. I don’t think this is as much of an issue as people are making it out to to be.
Iris is alive y'all. She’s in the new sneak peek clip. If any of y'all haters needed confirmation of Iris not being dead. Here it is. Have a good time tonight watching Barry discover she’s alive and well. That reunion is gonna be pretty good, so I’d prepare myself SBs
