[S1E6] The Long Wait
After a long wait, Disney finally released the sixth and final episode of the latest MCU show, Loki. However, before getting started with the series finale, fans want to know if they should expect an end-credit scene in the episode; well, here's what we know about it.
[S1E6] The Long Wait
The preview starts with a dragon flying, and then a member of the king's Small Council saying, "We should address the latest development in the Stepstones." Wait, didn't Prince Daemon already handily do that by cutting the Crabfeeder in half? Ohhh, wait, this isn't a rerun. The Stepstones are giving Viserys ulcers once again.
Ice bucket challenge, David Blaine, Sue Grafton, Area 51, H.R. Pufnstuf ("That is a joke for people born in the early to mid '70s!"), Rocky, The King of Kong, The Dukes Of Hazzard, Crazy Calls (as near as I can tell, this is the name of the cassette they used to advertise on television with wacky answering-machine messages, including the one on Ted's voicemail that ends with "wait for the beep") (arguably another joke for people born in the early to mid '70s).
I mean, how could it not be Harriet Walter, who is so funny as Rebecca's mother Deborah? The show really loves those long setups with closing twists, like her description of telling her husband she's going to live her best life that ends with the revelation that she did it while sitting on the toilet. Walter has just the right tone for this dotty-but-aggravating mother.
First, though, let's cover all this interpersonal drama (since a lot of it has repercussions on what happens with the case). First, Lori kicks her husband John out of the house after learning of yet another affair; John goes to stay with his father and brother Billy, a situation which makes no one happy. Also, while still fumbling with her cast Mare gets a visit from Richard, and while his very sweet gift basket of Pennsylvania musts (including two ice-cold Rolling Rocks, which of course Mare likes best). Despite the thoughtful nature of his gift, she has to tell him that she's a mess and can't offer him anything, to which he responds by saying he'll wait in such a cute and sweet way that I'm now halfway convinced that Guy Pearce is the killer, just because wouldn't that really twist the knife?
Mare also finds clothes in the room with Freddie, but they're not Freddie's. Instead, she identifies them as clothes belonging to Erin (which Freddie was given by Kenny, as potential gifts for Freddie's daughter). The clothes include a T-shirt from the Ross family reunion which was attended by Lori's family, including John, Billy, Kenny, and Erin, and it's the family reunion that may prove to be the key clue to this whole mess. Her ex-boyfriend Dylan isn't the father of her baby, we know, which means there's someone else out there at least responsible for her pregnancy... and it appears that Erin's cousin Billy may have engaged her in inappropriate relations.
[2:58] Bruce Banerdt: There's a technology demonstration called MarCO, which stands for Mars Cube One, and that's a pair of CubeSats, which are little tiny satellites. They're about the size of a briefcase, and they're going to fly along with us to Mars.
[5:10] Narrator: If InSight is the pitcher, then MarCO will be up at bat just as InSight enters the Martian atmosphere. Radio satellite dishes on Earth are the players on the field, waiting to catch the ball.
[16:19] Cody Colley: It means that your access to space, the bar is way lower. You're talking about decreasing the cost for a Mars mission by an order of magnitude. Granted the capability isn't as large, but you can be far more tactical. That's what CubeSats are really good at is: they can do a very specific thing. If we're an order of magnitude cheaper, why not send an order of magnitude more? That's where there are actually some applications where you're talking about measuring the magnetic field of other planets, where you really want lots and lots of measurements taken. You don't want to wait for your flagship mission to spend five years to measure it. It's much more efficient to send a hundred small spacecraft in a swarm that can make these measurements. You can also have one semi-big spacecraft that's sort of the mothership that receives all the data from all of its children and distributes that information. So there's different architectures that now that we're actually talking about sending hundreds of CubeSats, it's really meaningful for us to actually start thinking about them. In the past they were, I would call it academic. I think we're finally getting to the point where it's not academic to talk about solutions like that.
Throughout the first five episodes, the wall decor throughout the Red Keep had a consistent theme of group sex and dragons. But in the sixth episode we see adult-Rhaenrya standing in the same place younger-Alicent once stood when the queen's bedroom belonged to Aemma.
Back up north, beyond the Wall, we find Meera and Bran again, safely away from the wights. Their companion is quickly revealed to be none other than Benjen Stark, the long-missing uncle of the Stark children, who went missing after a ranging.
loco73: but seeing Dany finally riding Drogon like a true Targaryen , was a moment I had been waiting for a long time to see! When all three of them will ride, now that will be a sight to see!!!
By the way, long time reader, but only started commenting this season. Well I figured this to be a great season so far so I wanted to express my thoughts. Hello everyone. Great (for the most part) discussions in here!!
Reg Faceless Men after Arya: my theory is either she escapes long enough to get revenge in a majorly satisfying way only to be killed. Or she gets revenge and when faced with peace after her list is done she turns herself in to the faceless men; which would seem more poetic to me. Either way I think Aryas face has to end up on that wall.. ?
In London, the Super Squad pulls up outside the boarding house and Sidney tells Charlotte to wait in the car (without even cracking a window for her, which is rude). After we get inside the "boarding house" I get why: this place is FOR SURE a bordello, and based on the crowd reaction to Sidney, this is not his first visit. Charlotte obviously doesn't stay in the carriage, and on her entrance, the fancy female go-between we met earlier, who appears to be the "boarding house" Madame, asks if Charlotte made an honest man of our Sidney. Charlotte's reaction?
Not to be an enabler, but Charlotte could probably also use a drink. She feels really bad for leaving Georgiana at home and doesn't think she's rich enough to fit in. Sidney, who seems to have caught the sharing bug, tells her that he often feels like he doesn't belong even though he has money. Bonding!
Now, after a very long wait, Superman & Lois finally returns with an all-new episode -- and it picks up right where "The Best of Smallville" left off. Indeed, as "Broken Trust" begins, Tag is still attacking Jordan in the middle of the night, blaming him for the accident at the Shuster Mines that gave him his powers. Tag wants answers, and he's become unhinged because of it. Fortunately, Jordan activates the device given to him by his parents and, with the press of a button, Superman flies to the scene to interrupt the fight. Tag is taken by surprise and instead of facing off with the Man of Steel, he super-speeds away, his powers derailing a train in its wake. While Superman gives chase, he has no choice but to stop and catch the train, and once the crisis has been averted, Tag has gotten away.
Later at school, Tag's attack is causing Jordan to experience sharp headaches. Before long, it becomes clear that the boy is starting to develop new superpowers: super-hearing and heat vision. Jordan manages to keep them in check as best he can, swearing his brother to secrecy, lest their father prevents him from playing in their big game against Metropolis. At home, Clark decides it's time to teach his son how to fight and, to do that, he takes his boys in the barn so that Jordan can train on the same old, massive piece of log that Clark practiced his punches on when he first developed his abilities. After a less-than-successful first punch, Jordan harnesses his super-strength and lands a punch that leaves its mark on the rock-hard piece of wood.
Ian Cardona has written for CBR since 2017. He is a Feature, Comic Breakouts and News writer. He's been in love with comics for a very long time, and believes there is some good to be found even in the industry's more difficult times. His favorite Avenger is Captain America, and that was long before the character starred in a very successful film franchise. He is an avid statue and Funko Pop! figures collector, and he's rapidly running out of shelf space. With CBR, he has been able to write about his favorite subjects, from the MCU to Doctor Who. You can follow him on Twitter at @ian_c1701 (yes, that is a Star Trek reference) for discussions, debates or pictures of really cool collectibles he probably doesn't have room for.
After a long wait, a Soprano has finally become the boss of the DiMeo crime family, and it's Tony's Uncle Junior. But as Junior's lead henchman, Mikey Palmice, says when he busts up Sammy Grigio's card game, Junior "ain't respecting old arrangements". He changes old deals and attempts to have more money funneled toward him, while allowing less to trickle down to his capos.
The title is a reference to Pax Romana (Roman peace) and related terms (Pax Britannica, Pax Americana etc.), which refer to a lack of conflict over a long period of time due to the unchallenged rule of a single dominant power, which Tony hopes to achieve within the Soprano family. Pax Romana was an era initiated by the Roman emperor Augustus, mentioned by Tony in his conversation with Uncle Junior. 041b061a72
