As if we need yet another reason to loathe–in the most loving way–Moffit and the Sherlock BBC crew; season three brings a plethora of overwhelming suspense to the table, along with a rattling conclusion.

And of course, there won’t be more from the Londoner detective and his puppy-eyed sidekick for another decade of our lives (or what feels like it, anyway).

Sherlock season 3, episode 3 “His Last Vow” is surprisingly void of a near-death finale scene to leave fans tearing their own hair out. No, this episode was more about unraveling characters, introducing Scary Villain #2, and giving fans something to think about until Moffat decides to come around with season four.

The action begins at John and Mary’s flat, when John’s neighbor asks him to go find her son who’s been staying in a crack house somewhere. John storms into the scene all Sherlock-like–it’s quite adorable–only to find his best friend in the place as well.

Sherlock assures everyone this is for a case, but John still goes to have him drug-tested, and Molly Hooper (Louise Brealey) slaps him a couple times when the test comes out positive. To make things even more bizarre, Janine (Yasmin Akram; though you may know her better as the sassy bridesmaid from “The Sign of Three”) seems to be Sherlock’s love interest. Watching Sherlock interact with this woman as though he’s actually in love is one of the bigger shocks of this episode, because we’ve all witnessed how detached and apathetic he can be.

However, it’s not long before the name of Charles Magnussen (Lars Mikkelsen) comes up–a news reporter/napoleon of blackmail who knows everyone’s weaknesses. He’s an arising threat to a great deal of people, including a Lady Smallwood, one of Sherlock’s clients. The detective’s fake drug addiction and his relationship with Janine are all part of his plan to steal back the letters that belong to Mrs. Smallwood. One of the highlights of this episode was John’s reaction to Sherlock’s fake proposal: “Did you just get engaged to break into an office?”

But surprise, surprise: as Sherlock pushes open the door where Magnussen is being held at gunpoint, the figure turns around–and it’s none other than Mary Morstan, John’s ever-so-faithful wife. Cue the hate fire.

Mary shoots Sherlock, and what ensues is perhaps my favorite ever scene in the history of the show. He visits his mind palace, where he finds Molly, Lestrade, Mycroft, and even Moriarty. Each help him in surviving, as he figures out which way to fall, how to prevent himself from giving over to shock, and how to hold onto the thread of life that is left in him. Ironically enough, it’s Moriarty (chained up and crazier than ever) who unintentionally convinces Sherlock to push through and survive–for John.

During the Christmas dinner at the Holmes house, we find out that Mary is actually a spy with a tainted past, threatened by Magnussen. Her attempt to kill him would’ve been quick and clean if Sherlock hadn’t gotten in the way, and if she hadn’t gotten sentimental over losing him. As Mary easily could have gone for a kill shot, Sherlock explains to John, the fact that she didn’t suggests she saved his life.

Once the hatred has died down a bit, it’s time to focus on eliminating Magnussen, one of the most perplexing criminals Sherlock has ever faced. He bribes the newsman with Mycroft’s computer, which holds valuable government information. However, as Sherlock and John arrive at his home, it’s revealed that there are no files where Magnussen keeps all his victims’ information stored. It’s all inside his head.

Police helicopters arrive, and there’s only one thing left to do. Sherlock shoots Magnussen right between the eyes, is whisked away and arrested, and will seemingly be sent away as punishment for his crime. That is, however, until Moriarty shows up on every television screen in Great Britain.

Yes, the crazy-eyed convict is either actually alive, or his image is being used by an even bigger and badder villain to capture Sherlock’s attention. And this is where it ends. Another season of Sherlock all wrapped up, leaving fans with more questions than they had when they started watching. It’s quite infuriating that they never explain how Sherlock survived; but perhaps they prefer to leave that up to viewers’ imaginations. Cumberbatch and Freeman are more sensational than ever in their roles, and season 3 features a more in-depth look at each and every character, especially Sherlock’s. There’s no “least favorite episode” this season; each is quality suspense and excitement.

Two months or two years; any length of time will be too long for fans to wait and know if Moriarty is actually alive. Season four has quite a lot of explaining to do. Score: 9.5/10.

Which DCOMs do you plan to watch during the Disney Channel Marathon?

Next week we’ll be launching a fun new game here on Hypable where we’ll seek your help in ranking every single DCOM in the history of DCOMs. It’s probably a good idea to watch as many of these as possible so you can brush up on your knowledge base and rank them accurately!

James Cameron’s Battle Angel adaptation has found its lead in Maze Runner standout Rosa Salazar.

According to Collider, Salazar has been officially confirmed as the lead in Alita: Battle Angel, beating out Maika Monroe and Zendaya for the titular role. The manga adaptation was developed by James Cameron, and will be directed by Robert Rodriguez.

Battle Angel Alita is a manga series by Yukito Kishiro, which takes place in the 26th century and follows a cyborg girl with amnesia. Designed with spectacular martial arts skills, Battle Angel becomes a bounty hunter, who makes a living tracking down violent criminals.

As Brenda in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials and Lynn in Insurgent, Rosa Salazar is already well-known in dystopian YA circles. She’s also had recurring roles in Parenthood and American Horror Story, and you can currently catch her in FXX’s Man Seeking Woman.


James Cameron has been tinkering with this project for a while, but his extensive and all-consuming work on the Avatar sequels led him to hand over directorial duties to Robert Rodriguez last year. Rodriguez previously served as showrunner on From Dusk Till Dawn (after directing the movie of the same name in 1996), and his versatile directorial resumé includes Sin City, Spy Kids and The Faculty.

When Cameron picked Rodriguez as Battle Angel director, he said in a statement, “Robert and I have been looking for a film to do together for years, so I was pumped when he said he wanted to do Battle Angel. He’s very collaborative and we’re already like two kids building a go-kart, just having fun riffing creatively and technically.

“This project is near and dear to me, and there’s nobody I trust more than Robert, with his technical virtuosity and rebel style, to take over the directing reins. We’re looking forward to learning a lot from each other while we make a kick-ass epic.”

Alita: Battle Angel has no release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted. Here’s the official synopsis from IMDb:

“Alita is a creation from an age of despair. Found by the mysterious Dr. Ido while trolling for cyborg parts, Alita becomes a lethal, dangerous being. She cannot remember who she is, or where she came from. But to Dr. Ido, the truth is all too clear. She is the one being who can break the cycle of death and destruction left behind from Tiphares. But to accomplish her true purpose, she must fight and kill. And that is where Alita’s true significance comes to bear. She is an angel from heaven. She is an angel of death.”

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set to continue Harry, Ron and Hermione’s story. Downside: The characters that survived Deathly Hallows are suddenly no longer safe!

Details about Cursed Child, the Harry Potter play opening in London next month, are being kept tightly under wraps.

But one teaser J.K. Rowling did let slip? It’s designed to make you cry.

Answering the Twitter question, “Will the Cursed Child make me cry?” Rowling strongly implied that the answer is yes — “or we’ll be checking your vital signs.”

Bombarded with worried follow-up questions, Rowling (randomly) chose to answer “why are you like this” by reminding fans of what she believes her primary responsibility is as an author: To make us feel things.

Of course there’s no reason to assume the “OMG RON IS DEFINITELY DYING AKSDJFSHFJ” position (even if that is the first instinct of this writer), but it is an indisputable fact that for many authors — Rowling included — evocative storytelling is synonymous with, “I’m going to make you love something, and then I’m gonna kill it.”

Cursed Child takes place 19 years after the conclusion of the Harry Potter saga. Not only are there many elderly characters we might reasonably fear for (including McGonagall, Hagrid, and Molly and Arthur Weasley), but J.K. Rowling’s Potter series has set a strong precedent for killing off parental figures to usher in a new generation of characters.

On the other hand, we could just be traumatized by the original Potter series, and everything is actually gonna be fine. Maybe J.K. Rowling simply expects us to cry tears of happiness because we get to return to the fantastic, magical world she has created.

What do you think? Is someone we love dying in Cursed Child, or will the plot make us emotional in other ways?
