  • ‘SIX’ Season Finale Postmortem: Walton Goggins and Co. on That Shocker

    In the Season 1 finale of SIX, SEAL Team 6 managed to rescue Rip (Walton Goggins), Na’omi (Nondumiso Tembe), and the schoolgirls. It was Marissa (Christine Lane), the young woman from Oregon who we’d seen Michael (Dominic Adams) recruiting over the computer earlier in the season. The show’s creators — David Broyles and screenwriter William “Bill” Broyles Jr. (Jarhead, Apollo 13) — say it’s a cliffhanger.

  • 'SIX' Postmortem: Dominic Adams Talks Michael and Rip — and One of TV's Timeliest Backstories

    This week’s episode of History’s SIX, Season 1’s penultimate episode, ended with Akmal (Zeeko Zaki) locking Rip (Walton Goggins) in a room with Muttaqi (Jarreth Mertz) after Michael (British actor Dominic Adams) had successfully convinced Akmal that the emir was going to kill him next. As thrilling as that cliffhanger is — presumably that truck carrying Michael and the girls to Boko Haram turns around, and SEAL Team 6 in on its way — it’s how we got there that’s at the heart of the episode, and, in fact, the series. Trapped in a cell together, we got to watch Rip and Michael, the Muslim-American terrorist whose unarmed brother Rip had killed in 2014 as the pair was surrendering, have multiple conversations.

Merz). The emir has decided to take Rip’s suggestion and exchange the former Navy SEAL for Guantanamo releases, while offering Michael’s head to Boko Haram to even their score.

  • ‘SIX’ Sneak Peek: Na’omi Encourages Rip to Stay Strong

    In last week’s episode of History’s SIX, viewers watched Michael (Dominic Adams) force Rip (Walton Goggins) to film a video confessing that he’d shot an unarmed American who’d surrendered peacefully in Afghanistan in 2014. The world, including the men formerly under his command in SEAL Team Six, saw the tape. In tonight’s hour, while the team decides how to proceed — and uncovers something that helps their search for Rip and the Nigerian schoolgirls — Michael makes sure Na’omi (Nondumiso Tembe) hears Rip’s truth too.

  • ‘SIX’ Sneak Peek: When Not to Shoot

    If you’ve invested in History’s drama series SIX, tonight’s episode begins the payoff. This third hour delves deeper into Rip Taggart’s backstory with a series of flashbacks, including our sneak peek above as the then SEAL Team Six leader — played by Walton Goggins — has a heart to heart with Caulder (Kyle Schmid) after Caulder nearly makes a mistake similar to the one we watched Rip make in the series premiere. “You know, at first, it’s like a video game —Call of Duty s***.

  • Walton Goggins on 'Tomb Raider' Reboot: 'I Am Ready to Get Lost in a Godd--n Tomb!'

    To do Walton Goggins’ enthusiasm at being cast in the Alicia Vikander-led Tomb Raider reboot justice, you should really hear him say, “I’ve got my d–n Tomb Raider saddlebag! I am ready to get lost in a godd–n tomb!” Then again, if you’ve ever watched the Emmy-nominated actor in FX’s Justified or Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, you probably can. Last week, news broke that Goggins will play the antagonist in the film helmed by Norwegian director Roar Uthaug (The Wave). “This director is an extraordinarily talented filmmaker, and Alicia Vikander I’ve met a few times, we have some friends in common, but I just think she’s one of the greatest contributions to any generation of actors, man.
