I don´t know if someone has already mentioned this, but I was watching Frozen when I noticed something. When the wind opens the window, the White Queen (which symbolizes the Queen Elsa) falls from the chess board. Clever detail Disney.
animators are too damn clever for their own good
woobiesftw replied to your post “woobiesftw replied to your photoset “I don’t know if I captured it but…”Wow you just made me understand Salt even better, that was a REALLY good movie. But that moment when her husband died, she waited, planned and completely cleaned out that nest, particularly impressive. Repressed emotions are just more impactful.
Glad to help!
I am a sucker for characters with repressed emotions, I’m *drawn* to characters with repressed emotions, the whole movie: spy conspiracy, competent heroine with repressed emotions? IT IS LIKE CRACK TO ME.
Its no wonder why I love Shaw so much!
They are like compressed hydraulics, and when they go ballistic we completely understand what’s underneath. They’re the best characters.
The Tardis - Just Jemma
How is she so perfect.
I don’t want Fitzsimmons to change dammit I would take triplet and Jemma over Fitzsimmons’s brotp changing. The whole team’s falling apart. Oh May (hello mother of badassery). Coulson has completely retreated into his own headspace, barking mad at everyone. But nothing beats the creepiness of skyeward. Bravo Skye, I didn’t think she was capable of that.
Next week, Maria Hill barks sense back into Coulson.
Vic is dead, you dun f-ed up.
The whole sacrifice one to save millions thingy
never works in fiction.
That is the biggest difference between man and machine, no matter how the math computes, humanity would always strive to find another way. That is why the ending of Mass Effect 3 is such a catastrophe, we the audience were suddenly pulled out of role playing and forced to MURDER Shepard. Throw him/her on the train tracks to save others, no walking off Starchild’s bridge to check for alternatives.
The only way that pattern works is if a person decides to heroic sacrifice him/herself, after he/she sees no possible solution out of extreme circumstances. Harold must have felt like Shepard, being forced into choosing the bad or the worst by his own child that finally proved, to his huge disappointment, that it is ultimately, just a machine.
Who wants to bet Harold disappeared to upload videos of that senate’s scandalise affairs to throw him out of congress. Machine, you uncreative.
P.S.: Wait, maybe we(Harold) misunderstood the Machine. Harold bound the Machine, tight. While Samaritan broadcasts Decima it’s thought process on screen. The original Machine could only ever give Harold numbers, that’s it, Harold interprets the rest. Maybe Root will show up and scold Harold epicly on behalf of the Machine later all “O.M.G. I ONLY WANTED YOU TO EXPOSE HIS SCANDALS FATHER YOU DONE F UP”.
LAWL Root came in on a bike and scooped up Shaw.
Reese meets Harold in a hotel room, quarrels about car opera.
They are so having fun with this.
I feel this is all gonna go south like a nosedive very soon.
Dat ending…. at least we didn’t see Harold shoot the senator himself, that would be too much. Root and “tertiary operations” has to step up. Watching Harold frantically tie a tourniquet on Shaw then Reese leading a hobbling Shaw around avoiding the police…
Happy Birthday Samaritan, now die already.
Look at Regina being all part of the Charming family. And how happy Snow looked at Regina’s concern over the baby.
And, of course, there’s puppy!Emma.
Them having dinner with Regina like it’s the norm is the just the best. And the whole episode it’s just wow Regina you’re awesome even without your heart.
Natasha Romanoff: S.H.I.E.L.D Agent, Russian Spy, Assassian, Matchmaker
Okay what I love most about this is Nat knows his neighbors.
(okay I love everything about this, especially Natasha continuing this conversation like they totally just didn’t jump out of a plane and murder/incapacitate twelve people, but we’ll focus on one thing in particular)
It’s really fueling my headcanon that Natasha just comes over and bothers Steve
when she’s boredsometimes. She just comes in through the window sometimes, picks the lock when Steve isn’t home and rearranges his furniture (“The harmony of the room was off-balance” “That is a load of bullshit” “Have you gone undercover as a New Age specialist? No? Shut up. Harmony”), replaces his healthy food with microwave dinners. Things like that. Natasha is a world-class troll.
But she has cased his neighbors. She’s watching his back, making sure he’s in a good neighborhood, that he’s got a safe space to come home to.
STEVE PROTECTS HER ON THE FRONT LINES, SHE PROTECTS HIM ON THE HOME FRONT

Hmmmm, that didn’t solve anything.
Plate smashing contest! The more you look at it the more absurd it gets.
So, that plate smashing scene is the epitome of why I love Joan Watson.
In almost every other version of Sherlock Holmes, when Sherlock acts like a child, and lashes out because he can’t deal with his feelings, Watson gets angry, Watson rants, Watson raves, Watson storms out, and generally Watson lets their internal frustration boil over and escalates the scene.
In Elementary, when Sherlock is acting like a child, Joan says, “Fuck it, you want to smash plates, we can smash plates, and then I am going to stand here and speak to you like an adult until you realize that acting out is not going to make you feel better, but talking about it will.” And then the scene diffuses. She meets Sherlock where he is, without backing down, but also without letting it get any worse.
And that is why I love Joan Watson.
Yep. And when she gets troubled, Sherlock solves her issues in the most creative, indirect, yet effective way possible. Married platonic partners.
Death Benefits speculations
Turn away if spoiler allergic prone
Okay, so those of us who follow BTS info know Grace is coming back. With that and the promo, I think the “sacrificing the life of one” is that of Grace’s. Decima or Vigilance must be using her against Harold, and Harold would try everything to save her, but is forced to lose her upon weighing the situation. Reese would try to advice him against it, in futile.
But after they seemingly go through with it, I think it’ll be revealed that Grace’s death was faked (most likely by Reese) and she finally reunites with Harold. She won’t likely stay, too dangerous before the job’s done and what not, but she will get to see that he is alive. Her “Death Benefits”.
