The Islamic State group on Tuesday claimed a series of bombings that killed more than 320 people in Sri Lanka, and released a photo and video of the men it said were responsible. The massive casualty toll would make the Easter Sunday attacks the deadliest overseas operation claimed by IS since the group proclaimed its caliphate in mid-2014. "Those that carried out the attack that targeted members of the US-led coalition and Christians in Sri Lanka the day before yesterday are Islamic State group fighters," IS propaganda agency Amaq said in a statement.Entertainment BGR News
We're two Game of Thrones episodes in, and the story has further advanced towards the event we've all been waiting for. I'm not going to spoil what just happened on HBO's biggest show, or what's about to go down next week, but I will discuss two things from last night's episode, both concerning a certain girl. The following spoilers won't ruin your Game of Thrones experience, although one of them deals directly with an older Game of Thrones fan theory. How old is Arya?Arya finally got some, so to speak, during the second episode, as she hooked up with Gendry in a slightly cringy scene. Unsurprisingly, the internet exploded, as fans were shocked to discover these two characters having sex, especially Arya.But the internet should remember that Arya is about 18 years old in season 8. Gendry, meanwhile, is 23. In real life, Maise Williams is 22, while Joe Dempsie is 31. William talked to Entertainment Weekly about Arya's scene with Gendry, revealing how she learned about that scene and what was required of her: [Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] were like: 'You can show as much or as little as you want.' So I kept myself pretty private. I don't think it's important for Arya to flash. This beat isn't really about that. And everybody else has already done it on the show, so…If you're still in shock, maybe you should remember that when Danaerys and Khal Drogo got together in season one, the character was 16 years old, actually three years older than in the book. And Drogo wasn't exactly a tender lover initially. And let's not forget that Sansa was quite young when she was married off.Arya may have joined Game of Thrones when she was young, but she's now a grown woman in real life, playing a teenage serial killer who's experienced quite a lot for someone her age. She was bound to want to experience love and sex as well, and she's doing it on her own accord, and on her own terms.The audience should grow with Arya in that regard.* * * The Waif theoryHowever, the most interesting detail coming out from this sex scene, aside from Gendry telling Arya who he is and teasing that he has a claim to the Iron Throne, is Arya's marks.The huge scars are proof to Gendry that she can fight and kill, and she's ready to deal with life-threatening events and survive. To the audience, they're a reminder of her past. The scars seem to be somewhat in line with Arya's wounds from season 6, when the Waif attempted to kill her:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQYoBvtEPWYArya somehow managed to save herself, survive those injuries, and ultimately kill the Waif:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6l9oS16S1IThat scene inspired a fan theory that said the Waif had actually taken Arya's face after killing the young Stark girl. By having the Waif posing as a Stark, the Faceless Men would have a potentially useful weapon on their hands. That theory seems to have been debunked once and for all last night.The scars might not match Arya's wounds perfectly, and that could be true, because we never got to see her injuries in the first place. We do know the Waif attacked her from the right side, although Arya was wearing plenty of clothes at the time. It's unclear, however, how much the Waif cut towards the right and under Arya's rib cage. Here's a reminder of Arya's recovery process:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6X8uQfG_Zb0On the other hand, the fact that Arya got intimate with someone for the first time might also be an indication that nobody is wearing her face. I mean, would a face still stay on while you get that close to someone?Politics The Independent
A senior Trump ally says he expects impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump \- despite Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi attempting to steer party members away from the move.Republican Senator Lindsay Graham, chair of the senate judiciary committee, made the prediction on Twitter on Tuesday morning.He declared that the ‘radical left’ is now in charge of the Democratic Party, meaning attempts by House Speaker Ms Pelosi to avoid divisive impeachment proceedings will fail.“Nancy Pelosi is not in charge of the Democratic Party. The radical left is in charge.“So, I will expect that there will be impeachment proceedings against President Trump.”Speaking to Sean Hannity on Fox News on Monday night, he said he expected a “stampede” by the so-called radical left to impeach the president.He said he “hates” that Mr Trump will have to go through the process, but believes the Mueller report, released in a heavily redacted form last week, “vindicates” the president.The end result of impeachment proceedings, he predicted, would be Mr Trump’s re-election in 2020.Any impeachment process would be extremely unlikely to pass the Senate.His comments come in the wake of Ms Pelosi, a pragmatic party elder not known for grand gestures, urging colleagues to pursue other options to impeachment this week.She said it was “important to know that the facts regarding holding the president accountable can be gained outside of impeachment hearings”.She condemned Mr Trump’s “highly unethical and unscrupulous behaviour” as revealed in Robert Mueller’s report, but warned her party not to become overly obsessed with the specific way it responded.“While our views range from proceeding to investigate the findings of the Mueller report or proceeding directly to impeachment, we all firmly agree that we should proceed down a path of finding the truth,” Ms Pelosi wrote to colleagues ahead of a conference call.More on Yahoo View »The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonSeason 6 Episode 125Nathan Lane, Pitbull, Philippe Cousteau, Lenny MarcusThe VoiceSeason 16 Episode 14Live Cross Battles, Part 2The Cool KidsSeason 1 Episode 20Indecent ProposalLate Night With Seth MeyersSeason 6 Episode 92Amy Sedaris, Mayor Pete Buttigeig, Toro y Moi
