We don't need to see Old Cap in the quantum suit - it could be in whatever nanoparticle container the suites vanished into when they visited NYC in 2012.

The best divergent timeline explanation:

Cap goes back to Peggy, creating a divergent timeline.
In that divergent timeline, Tony Stark (or whoever) independently creates time travel.
As an old man, Cap uses that tech to time travel back to HIS past in the original timeline, popping in at the lake shore moments before his past self disappeared.

I'm certain the writers knew of the uproar over Cap's Hail Hydra in the comics, and that was part of the reason they wrote that scene that way.  It's layered.  They're both doing a fun riff on the Elevator Scene from Winter Soldier, and they'd doing a tongue-in-cheek reference to the comics/meme.

Quick search - Wikipedia says his cancer was misdiagnosed.  He had a more treatable form which they removed surgically after discovering the error.

Ilyn Payne is still around?  Seems like we haven't seen him in 3 or 4 seasons.

Did the same heroes die in the comics?  Iím curious if it was driven by too high priced talent or if the actors wanted out.

No, they didn't.  At least not in the original Infinity Gauntlet books.  The decision to write out these characters was entirely contract-based.

But hey - they've been doing this for 10+ years.  I can understand the actors wanting to pursue other opportunities.

I thought it was a bit forced and obvious.  Kinda trying too hard.

You talking about the girl squad?  Or something else?

Anybody else think Bran the Builder is Bran the cripple?  Being unbound by time, I could see him travelling back and possessing his ancestor to make sure he sets things up properly to ensure victory.

That was one of the dumbest episodes of the entire season.

You put a half a dozen people in a room, any room, that's sealed off from wind, and those people will be warm.  Even with no fire.  Even if it's 10 degrees outside.  You wouldn't even need to huddle up.  After a while you may even feel the need to crack a window.  So the idea that you'd need to rope-line through a storm to get to a house with a fireplace is just laughable.

People can survive for WEEKS without food.  So if you're caravan has one day of food left and you're sheltered and you're in the middle of a blizzard, you tighten your belts and ration.  Wait until the storm blows over.  If the roads are then impassable, you send out a small group to get supplies from the way station.  And you wait.  You don't venture out in the storm and abandon your horses (probably the most important asset you possess) just to try to get somewhere else.  That's just stupid.

And on top of it all, while we have everyone from Alexandria and the Kingdom FREEZING TO DEATH despite having shelter and blankets, somehow the Whispers who don't even have coats and are out in the open, are completely unaffected.  They even became "stronger."

I was pissed off through almost every minute of that finale.

It was great seeing Rutina Wesley!  I used to love her in True Blood.

Pretty satisfying explanation for the scars and Michonne's paranoia.

From my conversations with people who were directly involved with this mess, Cunningham is a genuine sociopath.  They're pissed that this article portrays him with any sympathy.   He probably manipulated the authors to get favorable coverage in the same way he manipulated Sansweet and Wise to get access to their collections.

Saw Captain Marvel last night.  I really enjoyed it.  There were weaknesses, of course, but overall I had fun.

I think Ned's bones did.  Certainly not enough left over to raise.

I thought there was a good level of tension throughout the episode.  I was afraid that Jerry was going to bite it on the theater mission just because of the way they started the show.  The fact that they got away with so many stupid decisions scott-free was surprising.  I guess it speaks to their overall competence multiple-years post-apocalypse.  What's 30 zombies matter?  Barely break a sweat.  At any rate, it had me on the edge of my seat.

The whole Whisperer thing is still monumentally stupid.  Must be tons of potable standing water near the herds they hang out with.
