In just two episodes of NBC’s new show we’ve had a lot happen. We’ve had a lot of questions come up, some questions answered, and a ton of action. The episode started off with a flashback. A week after the blackout Rachel told Charlie that she needed to always watch out for her brother, Danny. (This is obviously where her tremendous guilt comes in.)

Charlie snaps out of it to find that Miles isn’t there. Where could he be? I already had my guess. Yes, I was right. He was fighting. Miles and a bounty hunter were going at it, and just as Miles was going to slit the bounty hunters throat, Charlie walks in. She made sure that he didn’t kill him. A decision that he later came to regret.

They continue their search for Nora Clayton. We don’t know much about Nora yet except she knows Miles, and that, “she’s good at blowing stuff up.” I have a feeling I’m going to like her.

While on the quest, they of course run into the bounty hunter, who’s now angrier and captures Miles. He gives himself up when he finds out that they’ve taken Charlie and the crew.

In no time though, Miles was already free. When they were walking through the market, he pulled out those crazy kung fu moves. This rendered everyone else helpless and him the victor.

The militia still had Danny and was busy knocking on the door of a house with a dead deer hanging outside. My first thought was that the Militia was hungry and wanted some yummy venison. Nope, instead of having a BBQ, they had a standoff. The man said that he had one gun, but when they asked to search his house he shot one of the militia men. This then led to his inevitable death.

Never one to stay in one place too long, Miles said that he needed to go find Nora. He insisted that he needed to go alone and went on his way. When morning came, Aaron and Maggie found a note from Charlie explaining she had gone on to follow Miles.

Being a step ahead of just about everybody, Charlie pretends to be injured so that Nate will reveal himself. As it turns out, Nate had been following her this whole time, and being very loud. She quickly handcuffs him to a pole while pretending to be hurt, leaving him there alone.

Aaron is quickly becoming one of the more perplexing characters of the show. We haven’t seen much of him throughout the episodes, but I have a feeling that this will all change soon enough. He might know more than he is letting on, and he told Maggie about him having the oh so powerful USB devise in his possession. During their exchange, he brought up the question of whether or not this blackout is man-made or not. If it’s man-made it will be easier to fix, he said. I have a strong feeling this question will come up many times over the next few episodes.

Finally, we find Nora. She’s part of a chain gang who is pulling a helicopter from one point to another. Silly militia, that won’t work! (What do they know that we don’t, and what are they trying accomplish with this helicopter?)

Miles breaks Nora free in the middle of the night only to find out that she didn’t want to be free. She was there on a mission to steal the militia’s gun, which when sold on the black market will be priceless.

Since Miles ruined Nora’s plans to steal the rifle, they need to regroup and discuss what to do now. Trying to earn her keep, Charlie volunteers to shoot the man in charge of the gun.

We go to a flashback of a man trying to steal their food shortly after the blackout. We learn that her father didn’t have the nerve to shoot the man as he walked away with the wagon of food. Present-day Charlie hesitates, wondering if she could kill someone. We see the flashback again. As the man walks away, we see that he was shot, but not by her dad. Rachel shoots him right in the back. With that, Charlie gathers up the strength and fires away!

In the final ten minutes we were treated to not one, but two cliffhangers! First, that Grace’s attic is infiltrated as “Randall” comes in with a taser. The second is that Rachel is still alive! (Gasp!) She is being held captive by the militia and knows now that Ben is dead and that they have her son.

Are you hooked? What did you think of episode 2, and how excited are you for episode 3?

In a new trailer for The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, we see what the creature can do while still inside her sarcophagus. Imagine what’ll happen once she gets out.

When the previous teaser trailer dropped, we remarked on how Universal’s first outing in its shared monster universe is shaping up to be a good old-fashioned scary movie.

This second trailer definitely puts an emphasis on the action, as we see Cruise’s character enduring all kinds of destruction even before the princess mummy is raised from her tomb.

In a new trailer for The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, we see what the creature can do while still inside her sarcophagus. Imagine what’ll happen once she gets out.

When the previous teaser trailer dropped, we remarked on how Universal’s first outing in its shared monster universe is shaping up to be a good old-fashioned scary movie.

This second trailer definitely puts an emphasis on the action, as we see Cruise’s character enduring all kinds of destruction even before the princess mummy is raised from her tomb.

Watch the full-length trailer for The Mummy below:

The description for the video reads:

Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy.

Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.

Cruise is joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson) and Oscar® winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).

The creative team on this action-adventure event is led by director/producer Alex Kurtzman and producer Chris Morgan, who have been instrumental in growing some of the most successful franchises of the past several years — with Kurtzman writing or producing entries in the Transformers, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible series, and Morgan being the narrative engineer of the Fast & Furious saga as it has experienced explosive growth from its third chapter on. Sean Daniel, who produced the most recent Mummy trilogy, produces alongside Kurtzman and Morgan.

Despite initial criticism over rebooting The Mummy franchise, this film certainly looks to be a different beast than the one starring Brendan Fraser. Better yet, it also looks to be a movie worthy of Cruise’s action hero status.

New ‘The Mummy’ images

The new trailer also came with several new images starring the main players of the film, and some great shots of Sofia Boutella as the mummy herself.

The first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gives us a glimpse at what’s to come, and we’re loving it!

Take a look at the first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 below:

Most notable in the trailer is baby Groot! He was well-loved in the first film and many wondered how involved he would become in the second film, given that he had been reborn after saving his friends. It appears that baby Groot will be just as involved in the action as before, and is causing trouble of his own! It should be fun seeing if Rocket can keep up with his friend as he grows.

Also touched upon in the trailer is Star-Lord’s feelings for Gamora. Somehow his friends are surprised by this news, and Drax even thinks it’s hilarious when the secret is made public. This whole scene makes us even more anxious to see this group together again. Only a couple more months to go! May 2017, can you please hurry up?

The official synopsis for the film teases:

“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”
