'Defiance' Recap: 'History Rhymes'

Pottinger is now really, truly dead, Defiance still has no weapons, Stahma is all out of effs to give to anyone by T'evgin, and Nolan and Irisa are being slowly killed by the mother of all migraines and/or a Votan mind meld. Could go either way. Y'all ready? Rahm Tak is on the move, so let's do this.

Irisa goes into Nolan's memories of when the Votans first arrived. Uh, okay. Flashbacks it is. Nolan is crashing when Amanda gets him to Doc Yewll who is so very delighted to see them, you know, what with the skin harvesting thing and all. Back in happy memory land, Nolan and his sister are protecting the ammunition position - they're Nolans so they have one rule: We live together, we die together. Or by ourselves when our brother falls for the Irathient enemy sob story. Well done, younger Nolan! Your reward is watching your sister die again.

Stahma heads back to Datak, why is T'evgin not dead? Well see, he's old and powerful and really good in bed.... Datak doesn't want to hear it and jeebus Stahma, now you've woken the baby what with your purple enchanter penis obsession. Oh we finally remembered Luke exists.  Let's not kill T'evgin, let's get him on our side and use Tak's fear of the Omec to secure Alak's (and my continued) release . Trust me Datak. Sure. He'll get right on that. Or not because Omec. Speaking of Alak, remember him? Your son? He's chopping the heads off of bodies so could really do with some rescuing right about now because he's a delicate snowflake.

Emilia Clarke Claims Her 'Game of Thrones' Co-Star's House is Haunted

Game of Thrones actress, Emilia Clarke, recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote her new film, Terminator Genisys. Clarke resided in the New Orleans home of her Game of Thrones co-star, Michiel Huisman (Daario Naharis), while filming her role as Sarah Connor. Apparently she wasn't alone, as she believes the house is haunted!

Clarke told Kimmel, "Oh my goodness, it was definitely, definitely haunted." New Orleans locals taught the English actress how to tell if the house was indeed, inhabited by spirits; "They said, 'you know it's haunted because the air is really thick and it feels kind of super humid. And I was like, 'oh, that's all of my house." Initially, she believed the air conditioning was broken and almost convinced a friend to drop $700 on a new unit during a 3am run to the Home Depot!

Clarke said that she had told Huisman about how New Orleans is notorious for haunted houses, to which he responded "Yeah, my house isn't though." She begs to differ, as she reports doors slamming on their own, in addition to other ghostly going-ons.

Perhaps the spookiest part of the interview is her dead-on impression of a Valley Girl. Check it out for yourself in the clip below! Terminator Genisys opens in theaters July, 1st, 2015.

'Defiance' Recap: 'Dead Air'

BY DAWN FEAKES

When we were last in post-apocalyptic St. Louis, Alak was a hostage of the Almost-Butcher of Tulsa. Rahm Tak, Stahma began Operation: Seduce the Omec, Datak bugged the armory, rendering all of the weapons stored there useless but hey, also get on blowing up the Arch, and Irisa continued to suffer from PTWDS (Post Traumatic World Domination Syndrome.) Let's do this.

Amanda speechifies from the Arch, reassuring the people that they got this, depleted weapons stash be damned (thanks Datak!) Pouring over old records, Nolan comes across a possible salvatin then boom goes the Arch. Well, the Tarrs certainly didn't waste much time there but man is Alak going to be pissed. Instead, let's give a warm Defiance welcome to our new hologram-Overlord...Rahm Tak! I notice how he left out the part about killing all humans in his 'there's nothing to worry about here' introduction. Politicians, man. At Lawkeeper central, Nolan and Amanda decide to roll the dice and chase after the possibly non-existent weapons stash, leaving Irisa and Berlin to search for clues as to who blew up the Arch. Hard to say which of them is least excited about this plan. That's what you get for choking with the game on the line, Irisa.

First Full Trailer Released for 'Fear the Walking Dead'

Courtesy AMC
It may only be 30 seconds but the first full trailer for "Fear the Walking Dead" offers up some zombpoc clues. Maybe. Hopefully the series is a little more exciting and offers some insight into what caused the dead to rise again. Although, Robert Kirkman has always been more focused on how it's impacted the living and not the origin so we still may remain in the dark about whether it's a virus, microbe, etc.

The hour-long, LA-based spin-off will air on AMC this August and consists of only six episodes. Fear not, another season will air in 2016. The series stars; Kim Dickens, Colman Domingo, Cliff Curtis, Ruben Blades, Alycia Debnam Carey, Mercedes Mason, Shawn Hatosy, and Frank Dillane. Familiar names are in the executive producer chairs, including; Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert.

We'll keep you posted on when the exact air date will be.
