Last night on Revenge we saw Victoria and Conrad remarry, but there were some complications, and Emily and Amanda tried to throw Mason Treadwell off their scent. Check out our Revenge recap to learn more.

Though the focus of the episode is mostly on Victoria and Conrad’s wedding, everything is set into motion with Emily and Amanda trying to throw Mason off their scent. Emily crafts a convincing story about having the burn scar on her back removed, which Mason takes from Amanda because Amanda also feeds him information about Gordon Murphy.

Mason, the investigative journalist and media hound that he is, discovers Gordon dead in his apartment, with one of Conrad’s cufflinks left behind. All of which was Emily’s doing. Mason calls the police, but then he calls Victoria to let her know that her husband might be spending their wedding night in jail. Victoria seems pretty pleased with the events unfolding.

So Victoria and Conrad prepare for their nuptials, and Conrad gives Victoria the classic pre-wedding gift of her very own handgun. We wonder when that will come into play again.

The ceremony goes off without a hitch while Treadwell and the police search the Graysons’ house for evidence against Conrad (which Emily made sure was there), and everyone is celebrating at Victoria and Conrad’s reception.

Aiden watches Emily
 

Emily gets an invite through Aiden, and Nolan and Padma also make the list. Padma talks to Daniel and tries to convince him that NolCorp doesn’t need the David Clarke records after all, and Daniel had discovered earlier that they were missing from Grayson Global’s system. Nolan later warns Padma that she’s poked a hornet’s nest that’s out of her league.

With all the dancing taking place, Daniel gets a hint from his mother that he might need to lead Grayson Global sooner than later, and it also gives Emily and Daniel a little alone time. Daniel reminisces about whether or not they could have made it work, but the potentially romantic moment is interrupted by the cops.

We liked Nolan’s reference to this move on Emily’s part as a “revenge all-star opportunity.”

Conrad is arrested
 

Conrad is arrested, and he thinks Victoria has something to do with it. She didn’t plan the arrest, but she did forget to mention that he’s being framed for Gordon’s murder. While in jail, Conrad gets a visit from Helen of Americon Initiative, and he agrees to an unknown favor in return for springing him from jail.

Kara Clarke is also doing her part to creep out Victoria, and it seems like she’ll be causing some problems in the future. She kept sneaking up on Victoria in her bedroom, and now Kara blames the Graysons for her husband’s (Gordon’s) murder. Victoria better watch her back with this one.

The youngest Grayson, Charlotte, decides not to attend her parents’ wedding, and instead helps Declan with the reopening of Jack’s bar. Things seem to be going well for Jack under Kenny’s ownership, even though the bar was sold under questionable terms. Maybe Kenny really does just want to own a bar. We’re still keeping an eye on him though.

Jack shares a nice moment with Kara Clarke during the opening ceremony, and it helps him to realize what he really wants. After creating a romantic scene for Amanda on the boat (the Amanda), Jack proposes and Amanda says yes.

We have to admit, they are adorable together, but the happiness is bound to get complicated because we think Amanda will want to reveal her true identity to Jack.

We’re also digging Jack’s new haircut.

Mason Treadwell still seems to be searching for answers, and after Victoria calls Emily a “juvie girl who cleaned up nicely,” Mason starts to connect the dots. What will he do with this information? We’re also still confused how helping frame Conrad is “the beginning of the end” for Mason, as Emily put it earlier.

Mason Treadwell
 

We just hope she can get Mason out of the picture before he reveals her whole scheme.

Aiden and Emily also share a romantic moment toward the end of the episode, which included wine and a fire, but Emily continues to push Aiden away. He says he won’t give up on her, and that she has to trust him, but we wonder if he could be messing with her.

We hope not, because we really like Aiden. He’s a good match for Emily.

Our Revenge recap covered a lot from last night’s episode, “Illusion,” but our most pressing question still deals with Emily’s identity.

Will Mason reveal Emily’s entire revenge plot?

After all that talk of inclusivity, Star Trek Beyond falls into the Hollywood trap of implied sexuality.

Mild spoilers for Star Trek Beyond.

Star Trek Beyond, already a wildly anticipated movie, made headlines ahead of its release because of the franchise’s decision to introduce the first openly LGBT character: Mr Sulu, played by John Cho.

While this decision was certainly met with excitement, there was disappointment, too. The original Mr Sulu, George Takei, openly voiced his opinion that they should have introduced a new LGBT character rather than expand on original canon (as they have been the whole trilogy), while Simon Pegg beautifully argued that there was power in using an established character who wouldn’t be defined by his sexuality.

Then came the movie itself, and while the introduction of gay Sulu is still a great thing, we’re left sorely disappointed by Beyond‘s decision to depict the LGBT relationship — or rather, hardly depict it at all.

As reported by our friends at The Mary Sue, the scene featuring Sulu and his husband Ben depicts a “lukewarm” relationship, although Sulu is very affectionate with the pair’s daughter.

This is, unfortunately, a common problem in Hollywood when an LGBT couple — almost impossibly — makes it into a big franchise film. They’re allowed to be there, but having any kind of physical interaction even remotely resembling what a heterosexual couple might have still seems to be off-limits.

And, according to John Cho, there was actually a kiss filmed. “There was a kiss that I think is not there anymore,” he told Collider. “It wasn’t like a make-out session. We’re at the airport with our daughter. It was a welcome-home kiss. I’m actually proud of that scene, because it was pretty tough.”

Cho points out that Ben was played by a non-actor, writer Doug Jung, and says, “Obviously, I just met the kid, and then Doug is not an actor. I just wanted that to look convincingly intimate. We’re two straight guys and had to get to a very loving, intimate place. It was hard to do on the fly. We had to open up. It came off well, in my view.”

And we wish we could have seen it. Introducing a major LGBT character in the Star Trek franchise is a fantastic first step, and depicting two POC actors raising a child together is a great statement — but, unfortunately, the decision to cut out their kiss (which was already chaste, by the sounds of it) is emblematic of Hollywood’s continuous phobia of depicting LGBT relationships and intimacy on the big screen.

As Screen Crush also points out, this exact same scenario played out in Independence Day: Resurgence, too. In Finding Dory, the lesbian couple are only implied, in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it sequence.

LGBT representation (when present at all) is always so subtle, evidently in fear of offending straight audiences while not totally erasing non-straight sexualities. And, sadly, even that is considered a big step forward — but maybe it’s time we start depicting humanity as it is, and not what society wished it was 100 years ago.

Here’s looking at you, Star Wars.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child reviews from theater critics are glowing, so when the hell can Americans get a chance to see the play in New York?

With just days to go until The Cursed Child script book is released around the world, The New York Post’s theater reporter has spoken to sources who say the play will be coming to Broadway sooner rather than later. Producers are currently holding discussions to bring the play to NY as early as 2017.

They haven’t yet announced a Broadway engagement for “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” but New York theater people say it’s only a matter of time. Word is that Friedman and Callender are in negotiations for a Shubert theater possibly for next season. They may hit Toronto first, however.

The idea of The Cursed Child hitting Broadway so soon (“next season” could mean around May 2017) will come as a relief to American Harry Potter fans who would rather not travel overseas to see “the eighth story” (though it’s a little more affordable to do so right now thanks to #Brexit). It also speaks to this important fact: It’s important to see The Cursed Child rather than reading it.

If the show does go to Toronto first as The New York Post suggests it might, a trip to Canada would also be easier for Americans. Sorry, people who don’t live in North America.

This writer saw the play in June and absolutely loved the characters and magic happening on stage. But the story is… not the best. I’m very eager to see what fans, myself included, think of the story after reading the script book this weekend.

For her part, Rowling has promised that fans around the world will get to see the play. Only time will tell if she’s hinting at a movie or a world tour:

If ‘Cursed Child’ comes to Broadway next year, will you try to see it ASAP?

The West End production currently has dates running into May 2017, but additional dates are expected to go on sale in early August.

Present day Han Solo may’ve left the main Star Wars series after the events of The Force Awakens, but the character’s time in movie theaters is far from over.

The new Han Solo film from Lucasfilm — scheduled to hit theaters in May 2018 — might turn into a trilogy for the reluctant hero, according to the New York Daily News.

The paper reports that star Alden Ehrenreich has signed a three-picture deal, suggesting that the studio intends to expand the Han Solo spinoff into a trilogy. “They feel that his character has the right potential to become a central figure in several movies,” a source told NY Daily News. “They’re keeping things under wraps at the moment, but the deal is that he has signed for at least three movies.”

This makes a lot of sense given the popularity of the character coupled with his absence in Episode 8 and beyond. We also know that Lucasfilm and Disney have many, many grand plans for Star Wars in the years ahead: The very first Star Wars theatrical spinoff, Rogue One, opens later this year. Episode 8 then hits theaters a year later (2017), followed by Han Solo’s own movie (2018). Next comes Episode 9 in 2019, followed by yet another spinoff reportedly focused on Boba Fett in 2020.

As for 2021 and beyond? Only time will tell, but we expect more movies set in the worlds of The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and now Han Solo.

The Han Solo spinoff will be directed by LEGO Movie helmers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. They’re currently deep into pre-production, as this tweet from Lord this morning shows:

“This is the first film we’ve worked on that seems like a good idea to begin with,” the directors said last July. “We promise to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us. This is a dream come true for us. And not the kind of dream where you’re late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all.”
