Creators explain how the two-month Convergence event will shape DC going forward.
The event will incorporate what writer Scott Lobdell refers to as "fan-fiction"; stories that occur outside of canon/continuity (often under the Elsewords imprint). Stories that will be used in Convergence include Kingdom Come, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, and Red Son. You can also expect to see references to previous company events including Crisis on Infinite Earths, Zero Hour, DC One Million, and Flashpoint.
Characters from different universes will be able to meet. For example, the Convergence: Booster Gold issue will feature both old and New 52 versions of the character. Legacy characters can co-exist with their predecessors, with Lobdell using the Flashes as an example.
Stories will not necessarily be reader-friendly for newer fans. Marc Andreyko, writing Batman and the Outsiders, says the story picks up from the old comics and assumes that the reader is already familiar with the characters and past storylines.
Perhaps the most burning question when it comes to Convergence is how it will affect the current New 52 continuity. Writer Jeff King wasn't able to give a definitive answer but said that "every character involved in Convergence will become available to DC’s storytellers – the ones that survive, at least." It is also possible that continuity will be more fluid in the future. Lobdell lamented that things had become so "grounded", which did not allow for flexibility in storytelling.
Who/what do you want to see in Convergence? All I care about is having Helena B. as the Huntress.
Basically, the first review gives the first four episodes a B+ rating. The major gripe is that the sand snakes are too cheesy and aren't believable as warriors.
Also, that the Faith Militant don't seem like they belong on a show like this. They're hoping that Tommen dies this season because it would make things more interesting.
The story is more slow than before. But, they're still enjoying the show mostly for Cersei "whose mental state just keeps getting richer. With her father dead, she’s more ambitious than ever, and it’s fascinating to watch her evolution".
and now onto the detailed spoilers that are leaked from the first four eps.....
Summary of the most noteworthy spoilers for each location/storyline:
-Young Cersei is apparently mostly a "badass" in the flashback scene.
-Tommen and Margaery DO consummate their marriage on the show. They are shown post-coital with Margaery being naked under her sheets. You see her sideboob and back as she's getting up. Tommen looks like he just died and went to heaven. Later, Cersei interrupts Marg when she is talking to her girlfriends and you overhear her saying something to the effect that Tommen and her are fuckin like rabbits.
- Cersei sells out Loras to the faith to drive a wedge between Tommen and Marg.Tommen demands Cersei release Loras, Cersei feigns ignorance and says "You're the king, I'm sure they will release him if you go speak with the High Sparrow" and when he tries to, he is blocked by the faith militant and backs down after a crowd starts to gather and call him a bastard and incest-born, etc.
- Cersei sends Mace Tyrell to deal with the Iron Bank so she can fuck over Loras and Marge.
-Cersei is a lot less paranoid on the show and is doing things to fuck up the Tyrells that would fuck them up much much harder than she did in the books and on a long-term basis too.
- Littlefinger is still kissing Sansa on the mouth.
-Sansa is angry when she finds out that Littlefinger plans to sell her to Ramsay. Littlefinger tells her to stop being a victim of other people's schemes and start making schemes of her own.
-Sansa/Ramsay wedding is happening. Littlefinger is banking on Stannis seizing Winterfell and, due to Ned Stark's support of his claim to the throne, will name Sansa 'Wardeness of the North.'
-Littlefinger explicitly tells the Boltons that it is Sansa Stark.
-Sansa and Littlefinger) aren't fully aware of how dangerous their predicament is. Littlefinger says he knows very little about Ramsay. He considers Roose to be a very dangerous man but says, ("But even the most dangerous men can be outmaneuvered...and you have learned to maneuver from the very best.")However, Cersei has also just called over Littlefinger back to King's Landing which means that Sansa will be alone with the Boltons for a little bit.
-Roose Bolton sees through Littlefinger's shit and questions Littlefinger's motives in moving against the Lannisters considering the Lannisters made him one of the most powerful lords in Westeros. Basically questioning why he should trust LF. He also questions how 'independent' LF is considering Cersei summoned him back to KL
-LF tells Roose that since Sansa and Tyrion never consummated their marriage, they were technically never married and she still has her maidenhead. He says "I assure you she's still a virgin. Tyrion never consummated the marriage, by the law of the land she is no man's wife. Inspect her if you must." Roose "I leave that to the brothel keeper. It's her name I need...not her virtue."
-Theon doesn't have a single line of dialogue in the first four episodes
-Barristan Selmy dies in a fight against the Sons of the Harpy.
-Stannis has a scene with Shireen at Castle Black where she asks him if he is ashamed of her and he recounts how she got her greyscale and the lengths to which he went to get it treated. He says maesters recommended that he send her to Valyria to live off the rest of her days with the stone men but that he refused..."Because you are the Princess Shireen of House Baratheon. And you are my daughter." Then she tears up and hugs him.
-Jon says "Olly fetch me my sword" when wanting to behead Janos Slynt and Stannis nods.
-Melisandre shows her boobs to Jon Snow.
Brienne and Pod run into Sansa and Littlefinger the first or second episode at a tavern / inn. Pod recognizes her, Brienne approaches them and pledges allegiance to Sansa...Littlefinger throws shade at her, Sansa isn't impressed and tells Brienne to leave. Littlefinger tries to get his soldiers to escort (and presumably kill) her but she throws them off, they escape with the soldiers in pursuit and she ends up killing them. Pod says that since both Stark girls refused her service maybe she is released from her duty. Brienne asks Pod if he actually thinks Sansa is safe with Littlefinger, he says no, so they follow Sansa and Littlefinger North.
-Brienne is also filled with revenge against Stannis and is also going North in hopes of killing him.
Cersei receives the cobra in a box from Ellaria insinuating the Martells are going to kill Myrcella. She berates Jaime, who says he will go to Dorne and return her. He enlists Bronn and the two hitch a ride on a merchant trip to Dorne. They row to shore under cover of darkness but once the morning comes a group of Dorne soldiers see their tracks in the sand and discover them hiding. Bronn tries to talk their way out of being captured but things go south, a fight breaks out and they barely overcome the soldiers. Then they bury the bodies.
Ellaria goes to Doran to try and convince him to go to war with the Lannisters or at least execute Myrcella but he is unwilling. Ellaria rides to meet with the sand snakes, who have apprehended the captain of the merchant ship Jaime took to sneak into Dorne. So they know he is in Dorne for Myrcella. Ellaria says they will have to choose between Doran and peace or her and war. All three agree they will support Ellaria and go to war.

^^mods these spoilers have been confirmed to be legit
It's a teaser so it's obviously not very long. I liked the first one though until the ending the mood in it was fantastic. Hoping this is decent!
The news was broken at Wondercom today, confirmed by numerous attendees and sources close to Twin Peaks. The show's return was announced via Showtime in mid-October, with David Lynch directing all nine episodes, but as of a few weeks ago, David Lynch said that he had not officially signed on, that they were still working on the contract. Kyle MacLachlan was confirmed to return, along with Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbrook, but David Lynch called the cast this afternoon to tell them that Showtime had officially pulled the plug.
Breaking news out of WonderCon: Showtime has apparently pulled the plug on the new Twin Peaks TV series. No word yet as to why.— Bill Hunt (@thedigitalbits) April 5, 2015
David contacted cast members today to inform them Showtime pulled the plug.— Twin Peaks Festival (@TwinPeaksFest) April 5, 2015
I am not really surprised but I am sort of bummed tbh, the cast seemed really excited about it.
EDIT, IT IS STILL ON, BUT DAVID IS NO LONGER DIRECTING IT [awful imo]

Celebrate Zombiejesus Day® by watching If There Be Thorns on Lifetime, with your real family- ONTD.
Season five of Shameless has certainly kept us on our toes, which is why there’s no telling what will go down in tonight’s season finale. From Fiona’s quickie wedding and Ian’s mental health struggle to so many Gallagher arrests that we’ve lost track, there hasn’t been a dull moment since the most dysfunctional family on Chicago’s South Side returned to Showtime in January.
But one of this season’s most intense storylines wasn’t about one of the Gallaghers. Sure, Fiona (Emmy Rossum) has had her fair share of drama, but it’s been the emotional-rollercoaster marriage of her best friends, Kev (Steve Howey) and Veronica (Shanola Hampton) that’s been the hardest to watch. “They’d never been at odds before, and they’d never had this awkward feeling of not knowing where they are with one another,” Hampton told InStyle during a recent visit to our office. “It’s really this crazy dynamic.”
Crazy is definitely an appropriate way to describe season five, but it’s also been eye-opening for Hampton. A new mom herself, she knew that it would get people talking when her character failed to bond with her newborn twin daughters—but she didn’t expect the fan reaction to be so overwhelmingly positive. “The role reversal of the mother not being connected to the children is something that I knew everyone would be angry about, but it was actually a nice change,” she said. “I wasn’t prepared for all the women who said ‘Thank you for shedding some light on this, because I secretly felt that way, too.’”
And as we already know, this is one series that doesn’t shy away when it comes to controversy. “Our show is very real and truthful when it comes to relationships—especially about what happens when you bring children into them,” Hampton said. Even though last week’s episode seemed to finally reunite everyone’s fave Shameless couple, there’s still plenty of questions left unanswered when it comes to their future. “Veronica and Kev don’t know where they are together, and I don’t know how it ends for them,” said Hampton. “There will be a little bit of hope, but it can never be the same—their story still continues.”
To see how this chapter wraps up for the couple and the Gallaghers, tune into Showtime tonight at 9 p.m. ET.''
Apparently people are interested in trying scything following the iconic Official Poldark Post Photo™ and then the clip of Aidan scything a field with his shirt off (gifs below).
"People don't realise what an art it is," says Simon Damant, the joint national scything champion.
Richard Brown, chairman of the Scythe Association of Britain and Ireland, says, "I've certainly seen a lot more about scything on the internet since that episode, but it's too early to tell if more people will want to try it".
Actual quote from the BBC article: "The actor set hearts racing as he scythed his way through a field, muscles rippling and glistening with sweat, as his dark unruly curls blew in the breeze."
- scything source -
Also, The Telegraph wonders whether Aidan has groomed his manly chest rug to show the muscles he gained through many hours in the gym. Aidan has admitted to having some form of baby oil applied to his hot body and a little eyeliner, but says no mascara on his pretty lashes.

Hope the images worked this time, mods.
What did you think of tonight's episode, ONTD Poldarkers? NO book spoilers please.
- He is desperate to get his rocky relationship with Perrie back on track and has told her he wants to prove his love by spending a lot of time with her.
- There are some at Sony and in the Little Mix camp who are worried lovesick Zayn will become a LM groupie now he has so much spare time on his hands. They are worried he could unintentionally cause problems within Little Mix.
- The last thing Little Mix need now is distractions. The next 12 months are crucial for their continued development from UK girl group to international stars.
On how they met and the drama:
Rechtshaid and Flowers bonded on the phone over Dire Straits and Depeche Mode, relinquishing control to each other in Flowers’ Battle Born studios and crafting an accessible yet sophisticated power rock record. It features a Bronski Beat-sampling electro smash (I Can Change), an E Street Band-inspired anthem (Lonely Town) and finally a rousing sister track to Killers classic Read My Mind called Between Me And You. But it wasn’t without its dramas. “I’m telling you it was tough,” says Brandon. “I wanted to fire him. Four times. He knows. I remember my wife was in the kitchen; I got a song from him on my phone. We played it and I said: ‘I can’t fire, him can I?’ She said, ‘No, you can’t. That’s too good.’”
On U2 and his band The Killers:
I ask Flowers about this notorious drive. Ariel tells me he’s a “prolific machine”. I suggest that similarly gargantuan bands haven’t seen their frontmen take such individual risks. Bono, for instance, has never made a solo record. “We all have different circumstances. U2 wanted to keep conquering,” Flowers says. “If my band wanted to conquer – ha! – I would be with them conquering. I wish this was a Killers record. It’s so strong. Every song on it is a single.”

"Still Want You" for Single Number Dos
While Island Records nor Brandon have yet to confirm the follow up to "Can't Deny My Love," there have been hints about "Still Want You" being the second single. Brandon confirmed the lyrics to Rolling Stone recently and says it's his favorite song at the moment.
Crime is on the rise, I still want you/Climate change is dead, I still want you/Nuclear distress, I still want you/Earth is heating up, I still want you/Hurricanes and floods, I still want you.
Frequent collaborator and director Warren Fu also confirmed on twitter about directing "Still Want You." He last worked with Brandon on the Killers video for "Just Another Girl."

Whether Sansa will keep wearing the black feather dress in Season 5:
It continues to a point. And then, um… [Note: We’re cutting this part out because, well, spoiler!]
About people shipping Littlefinger/Sansa:
It was so weird! That was really weird, actually. When the kiss happened, my Twitter exploded with “Eww! that’s disgusting!” And like the next day I got a ton of tweets going, “Ohhhh, they should be together.” It was Sansa playing the game a bit more. I think they liked that because so far, she’s been the weak vulnerable one. Then she came out in the outfit she knew was going to—I’m reluctant to say the word “seduce,” but use it to manipulate Littlefinger. And they were like, “Oh, she is actually playing the game,” which was fun.
On whether its a dark season for Sansa:
It’s definitely a dark season for her. She just escaped King’s Landing, and she goes back to a place where she becomes somewhat of a prisoner again. Despite being a prisoner again, she plays it out very differently this time compared to before. She tries to take command and begins to manipulate the people who are keeping her prisoner—which is nice.

When asked if he would return for 'American Horror Story: Hotel', Finn Wittrock said he is in talks with Ryan Murphy but nothing is set in stone as Murphy has kept most of the actors in the dark so far. He said he would love to return if asked. He joked that he would like Matt Bomer's character to kill him this season. Wittrock also said he may work with Ryan Murphy on an unrelated project, an untitled play.
