Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 Recap In the of HBO’s , the characters at Winterfell prepared for the battle against the Army of the Dead. In Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3, the Night King arrived with his Army and went after Bran. The Oncoming Wave As the Army approached Winterfell, Melisandre arrived just in time to set the Dothraki arakhs ablaze. But as they rode into the horde, the Dothraki’s lights went out too quickly. Daenerys took to the skies, and Jon followed, going against the plan. As the dead fought through the Unsullied and the troops under Brienne’s command, Edd died after saving Sam. The living soldiers retreated into Winterfell, but Daenerys on Drogon couldn’t see the signal to light the trench. Melisandre used her magic to ignite it, but the Army of the Dead made it through. They scaled the walls, and a wight giant made its way onto the grounds, knocking Lyanna Mormont over. She rushed it, and as the giant picked her up and crushed her, she took it down with a stab in the eye. Not Today Arya fought expertly on the wall, but the horde overtook her after a blow to the head. She made her way into the halls of Winterfell, but the dead were in there with her. Beric and the Hound went after her, and Beric saved Arya and endured a flurry of stabs, which killed him. They barricaded themselves in a room that Melisandre happened to be in. She pointed out that the Lord of Light kept bringing Beric back for a purpose, which was now fulfilled. Melisandre reminded Arya of what we say to death, and Arya left with a purpose. Rise Finally, the Night King showed his face, but a blast of dragon fire did nothing to him. Jon, who had been knocked to the ground during a dragon fight, went after him, but the Night King rose his hands. The newly dead around him join his army, and the Night King went inside. Down in the crypts, where those unable to fight were staying, proved to be dangerous as the dead Starks resting there also rose and attacked. Viserion wreaked havoc on Winterfell with his blue fire, as Jon fought his way through. Meanwhile, the horde attacked Drogon, and Daenerys fell to the ground without a weapon. Jorah protected her, and he and Daenerys fought the dead outside of Winterfell. Thank You Bran was in the Godswood serving as bait for the Night King, and Theon was there to protect him. When the Night King arrived, Bran told him he was a good man and thanked him. Theon rushed the Night King with a spear, and the Night King took him down easily. Theon died protecting Bran, but the Night King was ready to slaughter him. Out of nowhere, Arya rushed the Night King. He stopped her hand, and Arya dropped the dagger. She caught it with her other hand and stabbed the Night King in the heart. The wights fell to the ground, and the white walkers exploded into ice. Viserion was about to end Jon but collapsed just in time. Finally, as the sun began to rise over Winterfell, Melisandre removed her necklace and fell to the ground in death.

Netflix cancels Santa Clarita Diet after 3 seasons In a surprising move, Netflix has opted not to bring back Santa Clarita Diet, the dark comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant, despite stellar reviews and various Top 10 binge/streaming rankings over the past month. According to , fans of the show are petitioning for a Season 4 via #SaveSantaClaritaDiet on Twitter. Season 3 premiered on March 29. The reason for the cancellation wasn’t given. though the trade notes that a number of recent Netflix cancellations, such as One Day at a Time, Travelers, Love, Bloodline, Hemlock Grove and Marvel’s Daredevil, all of which were cancelled after three seasons, had gotten too expensive for the streaming service to produce. “The world had never known a ‘zom-com’ until Santa Clarita Diet, and we’re indebted to creator Victor Fresco for bringing this idea to Netflix,” the streaming service said in a statement. “To their endless credit, the incredible Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant were totally game, with an uncanny knack for comedy that brought Sheila and Joel Hammond to vibrant life, even though one of them was undead.” Added Olyphant: “I loved working on this show,” he said. “I’m going to continue coming in and doing scenes. If they don’t want to film it, that’s up to them.” Barrymore stated that the character of Sheila Hammond is one of her favorites. “She and Joel were an amazing couple, who had shared goals. And i am lucky to have worked along side Tim Olyphant. It was an honor to get to do something so delightful. Sheila lives forever in me. And I am grateful to Victor Fresco, who created a world so unique.” In ‘s first season, Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) Hammond are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction… but in a good way. The second season found the Hammonds trying to adapt to Sheila’s now-advanced undead state — even though she’s desperately working to hold on to her suburban lifestyle and not be defined as just another monster. Unfortunately — while the family had become markedly better at murder — the number of missing people in Santa Clarita is starting to pile up and it’s no longer going unnoticed. Season 3 has the couple facing the possibility of eternity together (or apart) as Joel has to decide if he wants to become undead like his wife so they can remain together forever. Santa Clarita Diet also stars Liv Hewson (Dramaworld) as Abby Hammond and Skylar Gisondo (Vacation) as Eric Bemis. The series comes from showrunner Victor Fresco. The post appeared first on .

WandaVision: Elizabeth Olson reveals details on new Marvel series In an interview with , MCU star Elizabeth Olson has revealed new details about the upcoming Marvel series WandaVision, confirming that the show will be set in the 1950s with filming scheduled to begin this fall. “There’s quite a few other comic books that we’re pulling from and it’s going to be Wanda and the Vision, and I think at the Disney+ launch chat, they showed a photo of us in the ’50s,” Olsen said. “Paul [Bettany] and I are really excited. They have a great group of writers. I think it’s going to be a total of six hours.” WandaVision will follow the story of Olson and Paul Bettany’s superhero characters Scarlet Witch and Vision from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series is expected to be the first show that Marvel Studios is producing for Disney+ with (Captain Marvel) serving as the its producer, showrunner and writer.

Except Thanos used the time stone in his gauntlet to undo her actions, which brought Vision back to life … but then he died again when Thanos removed the stone from his head and completed his quest to collect all the infinity stones. The infamous snap heard ’round the universe then effectively turned Scarlet Witch to ash. ‘s upcoming streaming service will become the exclusive home in the U.S. for subscription-video-on-demand viewing of the newest live action and animated series and movies from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel and Fox. Set to launch on November 12, the service will be ad-free, supported solely by subscription fees, and will be available on gaming consoles, smart TV’s, and connected streaming devices.

Macy confessed to Galvin that she no longer wanted the cure, and he took it well. Abiku The sisters took the artifacts Galvin brought back to Mama Roz. While she was analyzing them, Galvin showed up.

When the team goes after Emiko and the 9th Circle, Felicity attempts to take control of Archer back from the 9th Circle. Unable to do so, she uploads a patch that causes Archer to destroy itself. During the confrontation, Stewart uses his expertise to talk Diggle and the team out of the building to safety. Oliver confronts Emiko, telling her that Dante had her mother killed. Before Emiko can process what Oliver’s saying, Dante returns and saves her from Oliver. Later, Emiko kills Dante for killing her mother. Alena has recovered Archer’s root code and suggests they rebuild the program. Felicity says no. Her legacy will be whatever comes next. She plans to build something that will only help and can never be used as a weapon. Alena, however, still has a drive with the Archer program on it. Galaxy One In the future, Felicity learns from the helmet taken from one of the Galaxy One soldiers that Glaaxy One has expanded the Archer program and has equipped its enhanced soldiers with the AI in their helmets.
