Raymond Massey's big speech (scripted by H.G. Wells, no less) at the end of THINGS TO COME (1936): »
Hmm. I honestly can't think of a case where killing a single character would make me stop watching the show—or reading the books. »
I'm not sure if Simmons threw him under the bus or if Bobbi did, but, yeah, they made sure we knew he had it coming. »
Finally, Katrina is living up to that great shot of her in the opening credits where she looks properly sly and witchy. It's sad that, to date, that's the most interesting she's ever been. I want sneaky Katrina from the credits, not the sad, star-crossed-lovers Katrina we've been getting . . . . »

Seriously? A couple dozen comments and not one person has referenced Charlton Heston or Yul Brynner? And people's first point of reference is to the cartoon musical version, not THE TEN COMMANDMENTS? »
I think they're going for a Han Solo/Princess Leia thing with Hawley and Abbie. Remember, Leia spends a lot of time in the first two SW movies accusing Han of being a mercenary who only looks for himself . . . but we all know how that ended up.
Pretty sure Hawley is being positioned as potential love interest for… »
