Someone else on tumblr pointed out that PASSENGERS might have been a more
meaningful movie if it was about just THE ONE person dealing with being
alone on the ship for the rest of their life. And if, to cope, they go
through and make it a point to learn everything they can about all of the other
people on the ship.
Queen Elizabeth reacts to old footage, where she is seen beating up the treasurer and private secretary of her mother with a cushion. She is shocked by the roughness of her play from back then. The Queen Mother, on the other hand, does not seem to mind very much.
Behind the Scenes of The Poison Sky / The Sontaran Stratagem (Part Four)
Excerpts from Jason Arnopp’s set report from DWM 396
[Discussion while eating deserts and tea with David] The Doctor’s relationship with violence is a complex one, though, isn’t it? Much as we’re doing now, he often has his cake and eats it. “The violence is the final resort,” David stresses. “You should always give people the benefit of the doubt. In the final moment of the story, the Doctor basically knows he’s gonna have to sacrifice himself and go back up to the Sontaran ship. But it’s important and valid that he allows them the chance to back down. It’s important that he will always allow people to find the good in themselves. He gives them that opportunity even though he knows that because they’re Sontarans and because of what they’re about, they’re not going to back down. But it’s the morally correct thing to do, to allow that possibility”
That ‘second chance’ opportunity is a very Tenth Doctor thing, isn’t it?
“He would have you believe that he has quite strong rules about it,” nods David. “'You get once chance, and then I’ll do ya!’ And again, that came up in Partners in Crime, when he tells Ms Foster, ‘You get once chance. I’d advise you to take it.’ And she doesn’t, and ends up splattered on the pavement! Of course, it’s not quite as straightforward as that, and he will bend his own rules now and again. But that moral framework, that moral righteousness, is very important to him.”

Hi, indigopheonix here! For the Captain America IRC: Team Cap/Team Leverage team-up. (Sorry for the anon, I'm having issues logging in for some reason :/ If you need more info, feel free to send me an ask)
No worries! I love this prompt idea! :D
“So how do we get your wings back from the government?” Steve asked Sam, sitting back in his chair. He glanced at Natasha, who shrugged.
“I can think of a few ways, but we’d need a bigger crew,” she said.
“The Avengers?” Steve suggested. Natasha shook her head.
“Clint can be more help to us if they think he’s Hydra,” she said. “Tony’s too high profile, god knows where Thor is. And this isn’t Bruce’s jam.”
“I think I know someone,” Sam said. “Old friend from my Para days. He runs with some people now, could be able to help.”
In the middle of a board meeting, the man who was about to buy out Megashoes Inc. looked at his cell, held up a hand, and said, “I gotta take this.”
He stepped out into the hallway and answered the phone. “How the hell did you get this number?”
“Hey Eliot,” said the voice of Sam Wilson. “I need a hand.”
They met on the tarmac of a private airstrip that Leverage had somehow commandeered, and Steve watched with interest as they disembarked. First off was a messy-haired guy in a rumpled suit; then a guy who was so clearly military he must be Sam’s contact, followed by a gorgeous woman in sunglasses and a tall dark-skinned man with a laptop under one arm.
Then a tiny blond woman emerged, and there was a shriek of pure joy.
“Natasha?” the woman yelled, and Natasha said, “Parker?” in a mixture of pleasure and alarm, and before anyone could intervene, Parker had blown across the tarmac and leapt into Natasha’s arms.
“This is Natasha!” she said to the rest of her crew, as Natasha put her down. “She’s the best.”
“I think we can work with these people,” Steve said to Sam.
The strategy meeting could have gone smoother; Natasha was supposed to be the mastermind, but Nate Ford didn’t give up authority with grace, and he had to have his foot stomped on a few times by Sophie before he remembered not to interrupt.
“So, Sophie, you’ll need to go dress shopping,” Natasha said. “Alec, please build me your best RFID-cracking sports bra.”
“On it,” Hardison said. “I got the helium tanks too.”
“Parker, check your ropes, learn that new knot. Sam and Steve, Eliot will get you some uniforms, then all three of you need to get the dog. Don’t get a German Shepherd, get a pittie or a big Lab, something they’re not expecting. Mr. Ford, I know it will be a terrible sacrifice to run the show from the van, but someone has to,” she said with a grin. Nate nodded, acknowledging the sarcasm.
“Say it,” Paker told him.
“No, it’s Natasha’s job to say it,” Nate said.
“She’s not gonna say it,” Eliot said.
“I’m really not,” Natasha told Nate.
“So I can say it?” Nate asked.
“Oh my god,” Sophie said.
Nate clapped his hands and rubbed them together. “Let’s go steal a superhero.”
“Where are the wings?” the general roared, and his subordinates, who were nominally in command of Ft. Meade, looked at each other.
“There was a woman,” one of them ventured. “I think she was drunk. And – and one of our staff came down with a really, a terrible virus….”
“The pit bull got loose,” the other one said.
“And by the time we’d finished the evacuation, someone had accessed the storage booth where the wings were – “
“They must be dead, though,” the other one said. “It takes too much training, you can’t just strap them on and fly out. Sir, I really thing the more important thing is that someone filled an entire room with soap foam, like, a whole room – “
“And the pit bull might still be around,” the first one finished.
The general leaned on his desk, knuckles cracking. “I want you to take your thumbs out of your asses and find – “
“Sir,” an aide called. “I think you should see this.”
He pointed at the television, where blurred footage of a giant air battle was showing. A little line of text in the corner said LIVE FOOTAGE.
The camera zoomed, briefly, as a man piloting Ft. Meade’s stolen wings zipped through the air. The general’s jaw dropped.
“Sam motherfucking Wilson,” he said. “I might have known. Everyone’s dismissed – get me Washington on the phone!”
ALL THE CLUES THAT CONNECT MELISSA TU CHARLOTTE AND PROVE THAT MELISSA HASTINGS IS A.D. CHECK THIS OUT. IT’S A LOT OF WORK FOR ME, BUT IT WORTH IT.IT WAS A GREAT JOB FOR ME TO DOING THIS, BUT IS WORTH IT. I’M AN ITALIAN GUY, SORRY FOR A LITTLE BITE ERROR IN ENGLISH.
• On the night of September 1, 2009 (night of
Ali’s ”death”), Melissa enters furiously in Alison’s room and screams
“Where is she?” But we have not found out who she was looking for,
and she never revealed it. We see that scene in # 2x21.
• In # 3x04, Melissa reveals that MonA
threatened her by telling her that if she didn’t go to masquerade ball to
distract Jenna with some excuses, she would tell everyone that she pretend to
be pregnant, so Melissa went to the masquerade ball under blackmail. When
Melissa comes to the ball, however, she comes quietly and glances at Jenna, who
looks at her. Jenna was pretending to be blind at that time, but Melissa glances
• In # 4x04, Melissa reveals to Spencer that she
climbed to the Halloween train because Wilden threatened her, and she didn’t’
know that he wanted to hurt Spencer and Aria, and she did not agree. But, in #
4x01, Mona show up with a video of Wilden and Melissa on the train, and Wilden
begs Melissa to let Aria go, as if Melissa was in charge that night.
• In # 4x01 we understand that Wilden killed
Garrett as he was about to reveal to Spencer ALL of his corrupt actions. The
Marion’s murder to protect Charles, and the aggression against Ali to protect
Charlotte, all under Jessica DiLaurentis’s money. Wilden says to Melissa
“The plan has changed! Garrett is about to tell them everything! We can
not let this happen!”, This means that Melissa also knew ALL about
Wilden, and the existence of Charles = Charlotte.
• In # 3x16 we see a flashback of the night
when Ali disappeared, and Melissa coming out of DiLaurentis home (while Ian,
Garrett and Jenna were looking for NAT Club videos inside the house), and she
told to the phone: “I have to call 911 To have your attention?” And the
911 was also the police, who was looking for Bethany and CHARLOTTE that night because
they’re both escape from Radley.
• In # 3x19 we see a flashback of the night
when Ali disappeared, and we see Jason saw Melissa and a blonde girl talking in
DiLaurentis’s blackyard. Jason confuse the blonde for Ali, but when she look at
him, we see Charlotte. From
Charlotte’s # 6x10 stories, we know that she did not meet Melissa that night,
and no one knew she was in Rosewood. But, when Emily in # 3x20 tells her
“Jason says she saw you in is blackyard that night.” she does
NOT mention Melissa, and despise
this, Charlotte tells she met Melissa that night, but they talked about NAT
• Charlotte in # 3x20 reveals that the photo of
her, Wilden and Alison in Cape May was taking by Melissa Hastings. This means
that Melissa and Charlotte knew each other (since Charlotte had already confirmed
the meeting on September 1, 2009).
• In #3x23, Wren reveals that Cece was expelled
from the university because of Alison’s lies, and decided to go find Mona at
Radley for help her to recover from the bullying caused by Alison. It was all a
lie. However, Wren reveals that was Melissa to tell Charlotte about Mona’s
check in Radley.
• In # 3x24, Charlotte plans the meeting to the
Lodge of Thornhill, to see if Ali could get out of, because she suspected that she
was still alive. In # 4x04, Melissa too reveals that she had the suspect that
Ali was stills alive, and sent Jenna and Shana to control the situation at
Thornhill When Spencer asks Melissa “Why do you think Ali can be still
alive?” Melissa doesn’t say a word. Also, Melissa tell to Jenna
and Shana “Those bitches will be at the lodge at 9!”. This
means that Melissa knew Charlotte’s plan, designed with Mona.
• In # 4x01 we find that Jenna and Shana were both
afraid of Melissa Hastings and because of that they decided to work for her. In
# 4x09, Shana reveals that Jenna was also afraid of another person: Cece Drake.
• In # 4x24, Charlotte reveals to the police
station to know who killed Bethany.Melissa however confessed that she had
killed Bethany ONLY in # 5x11 when she decided to making a video confession for
Spencer. Also, when Melissa buried Bethany alive, Charlotte had already been
brought back to Radley by detective Wilden. Charlotte knew that Melissa had
killed Bethany, probably because Melissa tell her all.
• In # 4x24, Melissa comes home, to the
Hastings, saying she has just come back from London right in that moment and in
the police station shew says that she’s back because Toby came to her door
telling her that Spencer needed her family. In # 5x02, Toby reveals that he
never found Melissa, but Wren, who revealed that Melissa had already been away
for several days. Also she pretend to be back from London in # 4x24, and it was
the night when Jessica DiLaurentis was killed.
• In # 5x01 we find that there was an army
created to destroy Alison. We see Melissa Hastings at the meeting and seems to
be in charge of this ‘army’ because she says: “We do not have much
• In # 5x08, Spencer and Emily find the Melissa’s
hat for riding horse in the same horse riding where Jessica brought Bethany
Young in the past. At the end of the episode, we see Charlotte break into
Spencer’s room, and caresses Melissa’s hat.
• In # 5x10, Spencer finds out that 'A’, Charlotte,
had stolen the recorder where Ali told the story of his fake kidnapping in case the police asked questions.
Spencer had hidden him in a safe place in his house, who did not want to reveal
evewn to the liars. But Charlotte knew the hiding place. And at that time,
Melissa lived at Hastings’s house. Also, in the same episode, Charlotte calls
Spencer and takes her off to listen Ali’s recording of the fake kidnapping to
make it known that she has stolen the recording. It was Melissa to switch ON the
phone at Spencer to answer.
• In # 5x10, Spencer and Aria discover in a
Hastings’backyard a security footage
where Melissa meets a man VERY much a like to Cyrus Petrillo, the fake Ali
kidnapping, and tells him, “Do it, trust me, do it!”
All a few nights before the Mona’s fake murder. And on that occasion, Cyrus
allied with the 'A’ team to wrap Ali and take her out of town so she does not
have an alibi for the moment when Mona would have been “killed.” And
we find this in # 5x20.
• In # 5x21, Spencer arrives in London as she has a university interview, but does not find
his sister in the house, but only her roommate who tells her that she and Wren
were invited in the countryside, but Melissa did not warn Spencer. Then,
Spencer finds Mona’s blood in a test tube, in her bag, and the university
interview is ruined, and after that, she gets a message from Charlotte:
“Calm down, but beware of what you do. There’s still so much blood. ”…
Charlotte was in Rosewood, so there was someone in London to chasing e spying
• After Charlotte’s capture in the next five
years, we see A Melissa and Hanna’s flashback in London, in #6x17, and Melissa
reveals to Hanna that Charlotte will reveal to Wren that she killed Bethany
Young. This confirms that Charlotte knew that thanks to Melissa because she
already knew in # 4x24, Melissa recorded the confession in # 5x11, and that
night Charlotte had already been brought back to Radley at the time of the
• Melissa pretend to returns from London, in
the episodes of 5 years later, TWO
EPISODES AFTER Charlotte’s death, precisely in # 6x13 to help her mother
with Senate elections. But Melissa returned to Rosewood a few weeks BEFORE Charlotte’s death, and remained
in the shadows. Claeb find out that in #6x17. And don’t forget, in #7x01 , we
find out that ALSO Mary Drake returned to Rosewood a few weeks BEFORE Charlotte’s death, and she stills
in the shadows too, like Melissa.
• In # 6x13, Melissa breaks into the Hastings’burn
and whe sees Caleb in there, she stops in a blink and says, “Oh,
I forgot you were here” and she goes looking for clothes and
exclaims: “I thought I had more clothes here. At the end of that
episode, A.D. throw away the old black 'A'’s sweatshirts and search online "NEW
WHAT YOU GUS THINK ABOUT THAT CLOSE? FOR ME IS
VERY CLEARLY THAT CHARLOTTE AND MELISSA WAS REALLY CLOSE IN THE PAST. DON’T YOU
its nice to see behind the scenes footage of harry where he looks like he actually enjoys the cameras presence and is happy. Because he’s doing it on his own accord… not like other footage where he looks kinda ticked off about being filmed
