In the summer finale of Pretty Little Liars, the girls ventured to Ravenswood in this jaw-dropping episode. Beware of spoilers moving forward.

On tonight’s Pretty Little Liars season 4, episode 12 season finale, the girls received Magic 8 balls which warn that if Ashley (Laura Leighton) is set free, A is coming after them. As Travis declines to identify Ashley in a line-up, Ezra (Ian Harding) lusts after Aria (Lucy Hale) while in class quoting Shakespeare’s The Tempest. A little much, don’t you think? Aria meanwhile struggles between the pull of Ezra and Jake (Ryan Guzman), who does not have the same poetry tastes.

Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) comforts Ashley while the District Attorney decides to drop the charges against her. Paige (Lindsey Shaw) worries about Emily’s (Shay Mitchell) safety and invites her to stay the night. Spencer (Troian Bellisario) continues to call Toby (Keegan Allen) after he disappeared after their fight at the hoedown.

Ashley goes out with Pastor Ted (Edward Kerr) just as the girls receive a doll worrying of Mona’s (Janel Parrish) eminent demise. According to the news, CeCe (Vanessa Ray) is on the run and is guilty of killing Detective Wilden (Bryce Johnson). Do you believe this is true?

Spencer tries to contact Wren (Julian Morris) but discovers that his place is packed up as if he’s ready to go. Meanwhile, Shana (Aeriel Miranda) is hiding out in Wren’s apartment. Could she be the partner he called? Emily and Paige try to track down Mona with limited success.

Toby goes through his mother’s stuff and ignores Spencer’s pleas to help him. He finally is moved to call her when he discovers that Shana has Wren’s new address, which happens to be Melissa Hasting’s (Torrey DeVitto) flat in London. Toby decides to not pursue his mother’s death in order to placate Spencer. Do you agree with his decision?

Jake and Aria’s date ends early as he sleeps through the feature. She then goes to the brew and catches Ezra after the poetry reading. The two then discuss a past poem in a very formulaic love scene and kiss as Red Coat looks on.

Spencer demonstrates her magic skills as she uncovers A’s latest trick. Spencer theorizes that A wants to put on an act for Rosewood. Toby trails Shana driving Mona’s car while the Pretty Little Liars discover that a magic show is going on in Ravenswood. Looks like a field trip is in order.

Aria is selected by the magician to disappear, and after a moment of suspense, reappears without a scratch. It appears that the real trick was making Emily disappear. The Pretty Little Liars call Emily, who is hysterical and near the sawmill. The girls chase Red Coat, who leads them into the warehouse with Emily. They save Emily and discover that there are two Red Coats. Aria fights one Red Coat who is revealed to be CeCe before she falls seemingly to her death.

As the girls freak out over CeCe, she moves her fingers and disappears. Spencer shows the girls A’s lair, which she believes Ali led her to. It is full of photos, timelines, and computers that monitor the Pretty Little Liars’ whereabouts. Toby follows Shana to a bed and breakfast where she meets Mona. The girls discover a bank account which reveals that CeCe is an employee, not the head of it. Aria sees Wren on the timeline while Hanna sees men’s clothing in the closet. It appears that A was also following Ali.

Mrs. Grunwald warns the girls about following Allison and wants to protect her. She reveals that Ali was afraid and was being threatened. Mrs. Grunwald has the gift of insight and helped save Ali on the night of her murder out of the dirt. Mrs. Grunwald apparently drove Ali to the hospital, and when she went to get help, she disappeared. Mrs. Grunwald warns them that they’re being watched and that he is watching them.

Caleb gets on the bus to Ravenswood just as the girls receive the foreboding message. In the last few minutes it is revealed that Ezra followed the girls and went back to the lair. When do you think Ezra had time to become A? What do you think are his motivations?

What do you think of Pretty Little Liars season 4, episode 12? This episode had major reveals and completely flipped the series on its head. What do you think of Ezra as A? Have you processed this episode yet?

Pretty Little Liars resumes with its Halloween episode in Ravenswood on October 22 at 8 p.m. EST.

The Powers That Be have spoken, and they’re saying Guillermo del Toro will not be making a third Hellboy installment.

Fans across the globe are shedding tears as we learn that director/writer del Toro will not be helming another Hellboy movie. It’s time to punch something, smoke a cigar, and then find a kitten before you settle in for the bad news.

In mid-January, del Toro asked fans to vote in a 24-hour poll to show support for making Hellboy III. He promised that if it got 100,000 votes within the time frame, he’d take it to the studio and have a talk with them about making the film.

The Powers That Be have spoken, and they’re saying Guillermo del Toro will not be making a third Hellboy installment.

Fans across the globe are shedding tears as we learn that director/writer del Toro will not be helming another Hellboy movie. It’s time to punch something, smoke a cigar, and then find a kitten before you settle in for the bad news.

In mid-January, del Toro asked fans to vote in a 24-hour poll to show support for making Hellboy III. He promised that if it got 100,000 votes within the time frame, he’d take it to the studio and have a talk with them about making the film.

Unfortunately, del Toro did not get the answer we were hoping for.

However, there is hope for fans of the comics, as artist and creator Mike Mignola reminded us that just because del Toro isn’t going to be involved anymore, it doesn’t mean there won’t be future Hellboy movies. There’s always hope.

This is good news for those who perhaps didn’t like del Toro’s take on the character. It hints at a possible reboot of the franchise, but if that were to happen, don’t expect Ron Perlman to reprise his role.

For those who fell in love with Perlman’s interpretation of the titular character, this is certainly a blow. However, del Toro does wish the franchise luck, and it’s not like he’s hurting for work (he’s got Netflix’s Trollhunters, Pacific Rim 2, and The Shape of Water, to just name a few).

This tweet is certainly interesting, as it hints that he wanted to take Hellboy in a new direction, but his vision did not match the vision of the studio. Does this mean they’ve got another idea in mind already, and if so, will it be Hellboy III, or a Hellboy for a new generation?

With Ron Perlman out of the picture, it’s likely the studio may try to do a reboot, rather than replace the actor for a potential sequel. If there is a reboot, there could be resistance from fans, but with updated technology and someone else’s vision, we could be looking at an interesting new set of superhero movies that will still feel different from the blockbusters currently taking over cinemas.

The synopsis for Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda reads, “Simon Spier is sixteen and in love. Sure, he has never met the mysterious ‘Blue’ in person, but he’s falling hard and fast for their email love letters. There’s only one problem: Blue is a boy, Simon is gay, and he hasn’t told anyone else.”

The novel made the world (and Hypable) fall in love with the story, and the current cast and creative team have fans excited for this adaptation. With Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment (The Maze Runner series, The Twilight Saga, and the upcoming Power Rangers) behind the scenes, it’s bound to be a big production.

Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus in Marvel’s upcoming ABC series, Inhumans.

Iwan Rheon will star as Maximus, an integral member of the Inhuman royal family. As the brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt, Maximus holds considerable power in the alien city of Attilan. Charming and clever, he is exceptionally loyal to his people.

But unsurprisingly to those familiar with Rheon’s body of work, Maximus also hides darker ambitions — including taking the throne from Black Bolt.

Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus in Marvel’s upcoming ABC series, Inhumans.

Iwan Rheon will star as Maximus, an integral member of the Inhuman royal family. As the brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt, Maximus holds considerable power in the alien city of Attilan. Charming and clever, he is exceptionally loyal to his people.

But unsurprisingly to those familiar with Rheon’s body of work, Maximus also hides darker ambitions — including taking the throne from Black Bolt.

Iwan Rheon is best known for his terrifying turn as Ramsay Bolton in HBO’s Game of Thrones. He has starred in the British series Misfits and Vicious, and may never play a hero again in his life.

Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb, who also serves as an executive producer on Inhumans, suggests that those villainous skills will be well-deployed in the role of Maximus.

“Iwan’s ability to be charming, roguish, and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life,” Loeb says. “We’re thrilled to have him on board.”

Showrunner Scott Buck agrees.

“Maximus is a complex character. Likable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment,” he says, “And I’m very excited to have someone of Iwan’s considerable talent.”

Marvel’s Inhumans will be produced in partnership with IMAX. The first two episodes will screen in IMAX theaters before the show’s network debut in mid September. Spanning the course of eight episodes, the series will tell the story of the Inhuman royal family, with the associated drama that just happens when you’re a family of aliens with magical powers trying to rule a secret city.

A leaked cast list for Inhumans hinted at a complex lineup of characters, including Black Bolt’s wife Medusa and her sister Crystal. Karnak, as well as the three-legged horse Gorgon and amphibious Triton round out the eclectic cast. And with Iwan Rheon in place as Maximus, it seems like just a matter of time before the rest of the family falls into line.
