With Valentine’s Day fast approaching we are taking a look at some of the best modern day couples in young adult fiction. From surviving a dystopian world to surviving being a teenager, these couples have something that everyone can relate to.

Anna and Etienne from ‘Anna and the French Kiss’

Anna and Etienne are those characters that you know in real life. Everyone knows those two people who are incredibly right for each other but just can’t get it together. Etienne is the boy who seems perfect but isn’t really and that makes him all the more appealing. The girl who is cool and quirky with a touch of OCD, Anna is relatable in a way a lot of characters aren’t. Their romance is written with heart and is a true understanding of love.

Hazel and Augustus from ‘The Fault in Our Stars’

Hazel and Augustus represent a love so pure and heartbreaking it is hard to read. Going into this story it is impossible not to know that it won’t be all sunshine and rainbows. The surprising part is the overwhelming happiness you get from the characters. Hazel and Augustus took the time they had and used every ounce of it to make each other happy and truly enjoy life.

Percy and Annabeth from ‘The Percy Jackson and Olympians’ series

This couple brings the statement “I’ll always find you” to a new level. Even with the odds stacked against them they have managed to make their relationship work. The best part about this couple was that there were no love triangles and the anticipation of them becoming a couple had a solid pay off for fans. They are also equals. Both are demigods and equally strong which is rather refreshing.

Katy and Daemon from ‘The Lux’ Series

Katy and Daemon are the ultimate hate-to-love-you couple. Daemon has his reasons for staying away but he also just seems to antagonize Katy every chance he gets. Katy knows Daemon is a bad boy but something inside just can’t let him go. The back and forth between these characters is always fun and witty. The sexual tension leaps off the page and even though there are times you want to smack their heads together you know they make sense as a couple.

Tris and Four from ‘Divergent’ Series

To say they found love in a hopeless place would be an understatement. Tris and Four have both survived initiation and betrayal, but can they survive love? With the third book in the Divergent series still a long ways off it is hard to know if they will both make it out. The love they have is built on rocky ground considering trust doesn’t come easily to either one of them. This couple is certainly trying to make the best out of a difficult situation.

Alec and Magnus from ‘The Mortal Instruments’ Series

These guys are the ultimate power couple. One is a kick ass shadowhunter, and the other is the High Warlock of Brooklyn. Together they join the Downworlders and Shadowhunters in a way not everyone appreciates. Magnus is flirty and fun while Alec is a little more reserved about the relationship, but each has a love that knows no bounds.  While things may seem rocky for this couple now I think everyone holds out hope that they will be reunited.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
