I really, really don't want it to be true but I feel like Michonne is the likely candidate. She isn't one of the original five but she's big enough that it would be a huge impact. Plus, the old trope sex=death. I'm probably wrong and I hope I am. dontknow

This trope is so alive and well on this show!

Other than Maggie and Glen, it seems like falling in love or having sex on TWD means one of you is doomed.

Aaaand... the best tweet of the night goes to this guy:

Ok, but seriously... that was the most terrifying episode of TWD so far for me. I was literally shaking internally like a Chihuahua. Super dark, high tension, the feeling of the walls closing in, and the taunting of what the Saviors were doing to other victims along the way felt like little post-it notes everywhere the group turned, saying, "Yep, you're all fucked!".

Then there was Rick's face. Defeat and devastation. Amazing acting by Andrew Lincoln.

And now - we're still left to ask the same questions for... oh, another six months. Nasty stuff, right there!

I can't begrudge them a good cliffhanger. In my opinion, they did it really, really well - however, clearly the impact of this death loses a lot of momentum for viewers without the continuity factor. Inevitably stuff will leak over the summer months of filming and it will get out who is not part of the cast anymore. By the time October comes, the audience has likely already dealt with the shock-value and is readyto move forward into this 'new normal', whatever that might be.

I feel like it has to be Glenn, Abraham or Daryl at this point. He made that gruesome comment re Carl's eye and Rick if anyone ran interference so I think they're both safe.

I don't see Negan's comment, "you're taking it like a champ" pointing toward a female victim. I could be wrong, but I feel like it was a male death - an alpha taking out a big dog - not a girl.

For this death to radically change the group etc, it almost has to be Glenn, no? Like Maggie will probably end up at Hilltop dealing the aftermath of her pregnancy and has to stay for a while for medical treatment and maybe that's how she inevitably becomes a leader there? Would she do that if Glenn was around? Then again - doing another "omg, is Glenn dead?" thing is frustrating.

I can't see the group genuinely 'changed forever' or deeply impacted if Eugene or Abraham dies. There were far more beloved character deaths that the group got over pretty quick (eg. Tyrese, Hershel etc.).

It's also crazy to me that not even the cast knows yet, as per Chandler Rigg's (Carl) tweet last night:

Sucks to wait til October but damn - those last couple of minutes were gut-wrenching.

Edit: One clue I've been hearing people talk about is the earlier POV shots throughout the episode of someone in the van looking out and seeing slits of light through the blackness. Those random POV-shots must mean something. If the POV stays consistent to the final scene, then the person getting Lucille'd should be someone from the van (the previously captured Glenn, Daryl, Michonne and Rosita). So yeah, I still think it's Glenn

New Louboutin Nudes. Shades to match different skin tones, available in several classic styles (from ballerina flats to stilettos). Cool idea that gets away from the 'nude=beige' thing.

I feel like I'd genuinely be surprised if they stick to the designated victim from the comic book. It seems like most of the time they switch around character-deaths so that it's not so obvious. Unless for this particular iconic scene, they want to be pure with it and stick to the source material.

I fear it will end on a POV cliffhanger though, which is actually the worst possible thing. How pissed will everyone be to have to wait another six months? It would also ruin the dramatic effect of losing whatever character is chosen. I seriously hope they don't do this.

Anyone wish to hazard a guess as to which of the main character(s) will die during Sundays finale?

I feel like they've set up the foreshadowing of several characters potential demise during this half-season so it's totally messing with us! I was convinced it was going to be Carol for a few weeks (she was really getting the imminent-death edit)... then I changed my mind to Daryl. But now I wonder... maybe they shot Daryl to tease/stress the audience and it's really going to be someone else.

I know my stomach is going to be in knots for the season finale. I think in order to have the necessary impact of that iconic scene, they will need to kill off a major character. I can't imagine it having the same kind of effect if it ends up being someone like Abraham or Morgan, but after faking us out with Glen and Dumpstergate, anything is possible.

I feel like it should be one of the original Atlanta-Five, but I really don't want it to be. crybaby

My final guess at this point is Daryl, but I'm expecting (and hoping) that I'm wrong.

I always knew the zombies were attracted to sound and the smell of the living. What I didn't realize is that they were drawn to light, like moths to a flame. :-) Or was it the sound of the fire. I guess I will have to brush up on my zombie survival lore. Still the show is great fun. Not having read the graphic novels every episode is a new adventure for me.

Yeah, I think zombies are supposed to be drawn to the light, the movement of flames and sound. I guess anything out of the ordinary that stimulates their very limited brain stems.

I remember the charred zombies that had wandered into that house that Darryl and Beth set on fire a few seasons ago. And they seemed to be into the burning barn on Hershel's farm during the last stand.

Setting the lake on fire was such a cool scene.

Topic What movie have you seen the most??
Posted 18 Feb 2016 07:00

- Jaws (still watch it at least once a year, usually during Shark Week)
- Legally Blonde (this was the big thing in highschool/uni, along with Mean Girls)
- Cruel Intentions (because when I was 15, I thought Ryan Phillippe was the hottest guy ever and I loved his character in that movie)
- The Little Mermaid (like many others, it was a kid thing - on endless repeat)

Topic What is your favourite scent?
Posted 16 Feb 2016 08:52

Guerlain's Terracotta Le Parfum. This is the LE special anniversary version they came out with last year. It's now one of my all-time faves. If you like summery, beachy scents, this is really gorgeous. It's got a very solar, almost sunscreen vibe (this reminds me more of Bain de Soleil rather than the Coppertone hints of Bobbi Brown's Beach). There's some coconut, vanilla, white floral and lots of Tiare as well, so it smells like you're lying on a hot beach in Hawaii. Love.

Topic Deep frown line, anyone naturally fix it?
Posted 16 Feb 2016 07:04

You can try Dr Brandt's Needles No More topical. You can get it at Sephora. Over time it may help soften those lines by providing a temporary (non-Botox) freeze. It is not a miracle in a bottle though - no topical is (get a free sample first at any Sephora before you buy). You can also try some variation of chemical peels (or daily chemical exfoliation pads for at-home use) and be sure to keep that area of your face as hydrated as possible.

Other than Botox, nothing is really going to fix it though because every time you frown or furrow your brows, you are going to deepen and strengthen those wrinkles. Sometimes people even do this in their sleep. Your goal would be to try to keep this area of your face as relaxed as possible while awake, always wear sunglasses to prevent squinting and if you notice your 11's look stronger when you wake up, you could consider using a product called 'Frownies' (or you can use plain medical tape that's a bit stiffer) that will physically prevent you from furrowing your brow during sleep. It's not an attractive look, but if it really bothers you, it might be worth checking into.

I just looked at the trailer for this series. It look like it would appeal to people who work in meat production processing the live animals or perhaps coroners.

You definitely have to appreciate the horror genre to enjoy it, although it's actually more about relationships, humanity and ethics, and the struggle for hope in the face of fear.

However... "The Walking Dead has the highest total viewership of any series in cable television history, including its two most recent (fourth and fifth) full seasons, during which it averaged the most 18- to 49-year-old viewers of all cable or broadcast television shows. Total viewership for its season five premiere was 17.3 million, the most-watched series episode in cable history." (Wiki)

The series does pretty well when it comes to pulling in viewers. And hey, I like it and I don't even eat meat! :)

Topic Have you cheated on your man?
Posted 16 Feb 2016 03:52

I did, once (well, it was over the course of a week, while by BF was out of town). I did break up with my BF when he returned though. During our post-break-up chat, I found out was actually planning to propose. Sadly, I was totally into the other guy (turned into a major relationship, major asshole, many years wasted with him).

I also had a BF get pretty angry when he found out that I'd made out with a couple of girls while drunk at various clubs. I don't really feel like that's cheating, but I get that some people do.

Crepes stuffed with this sweetened ricotta filling. Also, home-made lemon meringue pie and Baked Alaska.

As for junk food, it was cotton candy (when I could get it at amusement parks and events). I was rarely allowed to have serious junk food or candy, so this was like a major treat for me. I still get excited when I'm able to snag a bag now.

I did make the mistake of reading some stuff about Negan from the comics, bit of a spoiler which I hope is not going to happen in the tv show... 😳

I know exactly the spoiler you're talking about - I watched that scene from the comics on youtube a while ago (set to tragic music). I hope it doesn't happen in the show. Having said that, I think fans will be pissed if it doesn't since it's supposed to be such an iconic scene for Negan. I'm hoping it plays out with a minor (or different) character and tweaked somehow so it's not as brutal. It's such a brutal show, but somehow I can't imagine being able to sit through that as a viewer. sad1

Speaking of Negan though, how awesome was the demise of his gang. That was another scene that left me slack-jawed during the opener! I totally thought that would have been CGI but they used actual dummy replicas. Very cool special effects efforts.

That first episode of the second-half of the season was pretty intense! During that one sequence with Jessie and her kids I literally sat there with my jaw dropped, even throughout the commercial break. Damn. Talk about a bloody Valentine's Day for Rick.

Nicotero always does such an epic job with these episodes. From the explosion to the burning lake... I totally appreciate the way these things were staged with care, without taking the easy way out by relying on CGI.

Posted 30 Jan 2016 05:23

For those that aren't into nail polish or mostly wear clear top coats, if you ever want a little splurge or to switch things up, Dior's Nail Glow is really nice. It's got a glossy gel feel to it and it goes on mostly clear with just a hint of fresh pink, so the effect is pretty glowy pink nails. They look healthy and natural but with a little something extra - and it's super low maintenance.

Sometimes I'll wear this when I'm too busy for nail polish or if I've suffered a chip and need to remove my mani and quickly get out the door.

Topic Caitlyn Jenner's Debut (formerly Bruce)
Posted 12 Dec 2015 12:45

As mentioned earlier I hear excitement and respect from the transgender community about her public transition and the way she's using her celebrity platform to educate the public about transgender issues.

I agree with this. It seems like many people turned on her a bit last summer, feeling like she was doing the "Kardashian" thing of over-exposure and attention-seeking with her "I Am Cait" show and public appearances, and that it would have been better for her to just go quietly off into the sunset and enjoy life out of the spotlight.

I watched most of her reality series though and it was 95% focused on series Trans issues and her work in the LGBT community and really only 5% on superficial "Kardashian'esque" fluff like hair, makeup and drama. I actually learned a lot myself, and thought it was a really positive way to use her celebrity to raise awareness and understanding.

I don't subscribe to the channel it's shown on over here so it's blu-Ray or nothing :(

Ahhh, ok. It's on a free channel here and there are marathon re-runs all the time. I guess I'm lucky. On the plus side, no commercials for you! And really - the first season was so well done, it's well worth adding it to the Blu-ray library.

I totally bonded to the Andrea character in Season 1. I know a lot of people didn't like her as the series went on, but she's still one of my faves and probably TWD character I've most identified with throughout the series (flaws and all).
