'Outlander' Star Caitriona Balfe Promises A Steamy, Sexy Reunion In Season 3

Warning: This article may contain spoilers for Season 3 of Outlander. It may be awhile before Starz premieres Season 3 of Outlander, but the hit series is already getting into production and actress Caitriona Balfe is eager to reveal some of what fans may expect in the third installment. The Outlander actress recently opened up about what can be expected when her character reunites with Sam Heughan’s Jamie Fraser, confirming the romantic fantasies shared by many fans of the season. Balfe also shares more on the journey facing the Outlander couple, as Season 3 picks up far from France’s shores. Jamie And Claire Give Into Their Passion In Season 3 of Outlander Season 3 of ‘Outlander’ will create a passionate reunion for Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser. [Image by Starz] When Outlander picks back up, it will follow the passage of time for Claire and Jamie in more ways than one. As Vulture reports, Claire has gone back to her own time, meaning the couple will be separated by two centuries. More than that, there will also be a span of 20 years, before Caitriona Balfe’s Outlander character returns to 18th century Scotland. That’s a long time to keep the flame of passion kindled, so it’s only natural for fans to wonder where the lovers will stand, when they’re finally reunited. When asked about the possibility of reunion sex, Balfe jokingly asks if there’s some reason to believe old people can’t have hot sex, alluding to the passage of two decades. “I think if anything, when Jamie and Claire get together again, their love is timeless and who they are inside is timeless,” says Caitriona. Giving the matter some thought, Balfe is quick to add that there’s no ageism in Outlander. Even 20 years later, Jamie and Claire can’t deny their passion. “In terms of the sex, I think old people have good sex too, last I heard!” Ms. Balfe further commented that she enjoyed aging her Outlander character, because it give her a chance to give Claire greater depth and to see how she might develop over the course of 20 years. Where Will Season 3 Of Outlander Take Jamie And Claire? ‘Outlander’ will take fans to another new and exciting location in season 3. [Image by Starz] The third installment of Outlander will be drawn from Voyager, the third novel in the series of books by author Diana Gabaldon, and, as Entertainment Tonight reveals, Claire and Jamie will remain separated for a portion of the season. When they do finally reunite, the two Outlander characters will head off on another journey, this time abandoning both Scotland and France to make their way to South Africa. Caitriona shares that this is where the television adaptation varies from the story told in Gabaldon’s books, because Voyager has Claire and Jamie going to Jamaica instead of South Africa. Even so, Balfe points out that both versions have much of the action taking place aboard old ships, so the variation may not even be noticed by dedicated Outlander fans. Filming the episodes on location, the cast and crew of Outlander will be spending time in Cape Town, South Africa. “In my head, I’m going on a three-month holiday in the sun, but it’ll be work every day,” Ms. Balfe shared. “But it’ll be great. It’ll be really exciting. I’ve read the scripts, the scripts are really great, so I’m really looking forward to that.” Caitriona adds that she thinks the separate storylines at the start of season 3 heading into the South Africa location will keep things fresh and exciting for Outlander, following the previous story arcs, which took place in Scotland and France. Asked for more details, Caitriona joked that she would be posting the new Outlander scripts online. Largely tight-lipped about season 3, Ms. Balfe says the wait will be worth it. Starz hasn’t yet revealed the premiere date for season 3 of Outlander. [Featured Image by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images]

'The Walking Dead' Season 7, Episode 12 Preview: Supplies And Danger Are Found

Rick and Michonne find plenty of supplies in Episode 12 of AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 7. But, could they be overcome by walkers at one of the new locations? SPOILER ALERT: This article discusses Episode 12 (entitled “Say Yes”) of AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 7. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid potential spoilers. Episode 12 of The Walking Dead is titled “Say Yes.” AMC lists the synopsis for this episode as follows. “Alexandrians scavenge for supplies.” This synopsis indicates The Walking Dead will return the focus back to Rick’s group, whereas Episode 11 focused entirely on the dynamics within Negan’s group. As per the usual synopses for The Walking Dead, there is not a lot of information to be found within it. However, AMC has also released two trailers for Episode 12 which expand on this synopsis quite significantly. [Image by AMC] The first trailer aired directly after Episode 11 of The Walking Dead and shows Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) searching for supplies. Michonne thinks they should turn back but Rick insists they travel on a little further. It seems this pays off as Rick and Michonne are then seen overlooking what appears to be a fairground which is overrun by walkers, indicating there are likely no humans on site. While Rick and Michonne seem happy with their find initially, the Episode 12 clip reveals their foray into the fairground goes horribly wrong. Rick is seen dragging himself along the ground as he reaches for a weapon. Michonne battles walkers as well and is seen, at one point, majorly concerned for Rick’s safety. It is unclear if Rick and Michonne escape, so viewers will have to tune into Episode 12 on Sunday night to find out. [Image by AMC] Also in the Episode 12 promo clip, Rosita (Christian Serratos) is shown approaching a house. She also airs her displeasure to someone back in Alexandria about having to “just wait.” It is unclear how these two separate scenes link. However, they could, potentially, be shown out of order. Perhaps Rosita leaves on her own to search for weapons after her discussion in Alexandria? You can view the trailer for Episode 12 of The Walking Dead Season 7. Along with this initial trailer for Episode 12 of The Walking Dead Season 7, AMC has released an extended sneak peek. This video shows Rick and Michonne searching another place in Episode 12. Rick taps on the fence surrounding the compound and a walker ambles out. As the walker leans against the fence, an American flag patch on his uniform indicates this site is likely an official base, perhaps even used during the initial outbreak. This place is also likely rich with weapons as Rick points out in the sneak peek clip. If this is the case, it seems they may have just solved their problem of having to find guns for the new group revealed in Episode 10 of The Walking Dead. This group agreed to help Rick’s group fight Negan and the Saviors, but only if Rick supplied them with a large cache of weapons. It appears something big went down in the new location found by Rick and Michonne as there are plenty of spent bullets lying around. Rick is seen sniffing a bullet and, later on in the Episode 12 clip, he and Michonne discuss whatever happened there, happened a long time ago. So, is this place significant in regard to the storyline of The Walking Dead? Or, is it just a convenient location for the collection of weapons? Fans will have to tune into Episode 12 to find out. You can view the sneak peek video for Episode 12 below. Finally, you can view the official images released by AMC for Episode 12 of The Walking Dead Season 7 below. ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7, Episode 12 Preview: Supplies And Danger Are Found AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Father Gabriel AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Seth Gilliam stars as Father Gabriel [Image by Gene Page/AMC] AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12 Danai Gurira as Michonne – The Walking Dead _ Season 7, Episode 12 – Photo Credit: Gene Page/AMC AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12 Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Danai Gurira as Michonne – The Walking Dead _ Season 7, Episode 12 – Photo Credit: Gene Page/AMC AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12 AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Danai Gurira as Michonne and Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes [Image by Gene Page/AMC] AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Rick AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Andrew Lincoln as Rick [Image by Gene Page/AMC] AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12 AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Rick Grimes [Image by Gene Page/AMC] AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12 AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes and Danai Gurira as Michonne [Image by Gene Page/AMC] AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12 AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Andrew Lincoln stars as Rick Grimes [Image by Gene Page/AMC] AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12 AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes [Image by Gene Page/AMC] AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Tara and Rick Grimes AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ Season 7, Episode 12, Alanaa Masterson as Tara and Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes [Image by Gene Page/AMC] What do you think will happen in Episode 12 of AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 7?

Will Sandra Oh Ever Return To 'Grey's Anatomy'? [Spoilers]

Grey’s Anatomy fans have waited (ever so impatiently) for news that Sandra Oh would return as Dr. Cristina Yang. It looks like they may have to continue to wait as Sandra isn’t planning on returning anytime soon. According to Entertainment Weekly, Access Hollywood’s Natalie Morales asked Sandra Oh if she ever would consider returning to Grey’s Anatomy, even if it was for a short stint. She revealed that she might in the future but not right now. Natalie Morales told Sandra that there is a petition to bring her back to Grey’s Anatomy. Oh seemed shocked that her fans missed her that much. Morales explained that Grey’s Anatomy fans missed Cristina’s friendship with Meredith on the show and wanted to see her back. In the petition, they asked Shonda Rhimes to “do whatever it takes to bring Sandra back to Grey’s Anatomy.” “At this point… No, I don’t think so,” Sandra admitted. “I don’t know. It would have to feel right.” Sandra admitted that she has talked with Grey’s Anatomy creator, Shonda Rhimes, about returning. She explained that the option is there, but at this time, she doesn’t see herself returning. Of course, that could change in the future. Oh won a Golden Globe for her performance on Grey’s Anatomy. She decided to leave the show in 2014. Her character, Cristina Yang, went off the canvas to go work overseas, giving her an option to return if she wanted. “As an actor, as an artist, it’s a full life that one has,” Sandra explained. “And as I look back to that time, which is extremely important and deeply meaningful to me, and it means a lot to me that a whole generation, a new generation of fans are discovering the show. So it means a lot.” Grey’s Anatomy fans keep hoping that Oh will decide to return to the show. It looks like it may a long wait before the fan will see her on the ABC drama. At this point, Sandra is unsure if she’ll ever return. Sandra Oh talks about a possible return to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ [Image by Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images for NAACP Image Awards] Sandra Oh was such a huge part of Grey’s Anatomy for so long — 10 whole seasons. The series just doesn’t seem complete without her in it. So if she isn’t planning on returning to Grey’s Anatomy, what has Sandra Oh been up to since her departure in 2014? Sandra Oh has been busy since her departure from Grey’s Anatomy. In 2014, she appeared in the movie, Tammy as Susanne. In 2015, she appeared in The Scarecrow and six episodes of Refinery29 web series, Sh*tty Boyfriends as Kathy. The next year, she voiced an episode of Peg+Cat as the President. Her most recent movie was Catfight, which starred Anne Heche and Alicia Silverstone. She played Veronica. If her current trend continues, Bustle suggested that we will see her in more movies and series in 2017. It sounds like Sandra’s plate is full, and she is working on projects that are important to her. Grey’s Anatomy didn’t give her the free time to pursue other opportunities. The series filmed pretty much year round, which made it difficult to expand her career. At the same time, Sandra appreciates the love she receives from her Grey’s Anatomy fans for her work on the ABC series.

Grey’s Anatomy fans, would you like to see Sandra Oh return to the show as Dr. Cristina Yang? What if it was only for one episode? Tell The Inquisitr what you think in the comments section below. Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursday nights on ABC at 8 p.m. [Featured Image by Michael Buckner/Getty Images]

Elon Musk And SpaceX To Send Two Space Tourists To Orbit Moon In 2018

Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, announced today that his ambitious and lofty space travel company is planning a trip around the moon next year. However, Musk isn’t sending NASA astronauts – or any astronauts – on the “mission,” rather he’s arranging a space tourism trip for two private customers. The unnamed SpaceX clients have, according to Elon Musk, already paid a “significant deposit” for their trip around the moon, and are reportedly incredibly serious about orbiting the Earth’s natural satellite next year. Fly me to the moon … Okhttps://t.co/6QT8m5SHwn — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 27, 2017 Musk used the SpaceX website to make the official announcement about the proposed lunar trip, and the first private space tourists are expected to take their roughly week-long trip around the moon in the SpaceX Crew Dragon (Dragon Version 2) spacecraft. Most funding for the development of the SpaceX passenger spacecraft has come from NASA and the organization’s Commercial Crew Program, and Musk thanked the agency for their support, adding that the impending new stage in space exploration and tourism “wouldn’t be possible” NASA support. As The Verge reports, the private citizens reportedly approached Elon Musk and SpaceX in order to have their dream of traveling to the moon’s orbit – and beyond – facilitated. The initial plans for the moon visit are lofty indeed, with Musk describing a tour that would “skim” the lunar surface, then extend beyond the moon before looping back to return to Earth. In all, the entire trip is expected to cover and impressive 300,000 to 400,000 miles. The current plan is to conduct the private moon mission near the end of 2018, however the two proposed participants (who are reportedly already acquainted with one another) will soon begin health and fitness tests to ensure their physical capability of enduring space travel. The pair who have chosen Elon Musk and SpaceX to fulfill their dreams for a trip to the moon will also require substantial specialized training between now and their launch date. Despite the fact that Elon Musk and SpaceX only announced their plans for a private moon mission just today, some critics are already taking issue with the proposed endeavor. After all, the Crew Dragon spacecraft has yet to complete a successful launch; that test isn’t even scheduled until later this year. And SpaceX has faced some highly-publicized and even catastrophic rocket failures in the past. The Crew Dragon is slated to pair with the Falcon Heavy rocket by SpaceX. Additionally, Elon Musk has a history of putting the cart ahead of the horse to a certain degree, and has failed to meet his deadlines in the past. For example, Musk vowed in 2011 to have people in space within three years, something that never materialized. SpaceX to fly two paying customers on tourist trip around the moon in 2018, Elon Musk reveals https://t.co/QlxVkDBLvE pic.twitter.com/mhlZxP6T3b — Mirror Tech (@MirrorTech) February 27, 2017 Musk has long-touted private space trips and tourism as “significant drivers of revenue” tso help fund future advanced rocket and space travel technology. Neither Elon Musk nor SpaceX have divulged how much their first lunar visitors have shelled out (or will shell out) for their trip arund the moon. However, Musk described the cost as “comparable” to that of a crewed mission to the ISS. According to Elon, the Crew Dragon spacecraft has been designed from the concept stage to be manned, and to transport humans to the moon and possibly beyond. However, the first tests of the spacecraft later this year will be unmanned. In a real-world situation, the Crew Dragon is reportedly designed to be flown automatically, and that is how it is intended to function throughout the majority of the planned 2018 trip around the moon. However, Musk says that if needed the passengers will be able to intervene with the operation of the SpaceX craft, although Musk claims that “the success rate is quite high” for the as-yet untested vehicle. @WSJ Can it also drop people off? I can think of a few folks I’d like to buy one-way tickets. — Suburban Chicken (@SuburbanChicken) February 28, 2017 Elon Musk says SpaceX will send two people around the moon next year. In related news, my TIE Fighter has a new target to practice on — Darth Vader (@DepressedDarth) February 28, 2017 @katelunau @Bryson_M think they could take @realDonaldTrump too? — Kim Anderson (@K_AndersonSays) February 27, 2017 @USATODAY I think I know the two tourists #America would like to vote for & probably start a gofundme to pay ???? #TrumpInSpace — 305 Pirate ☮????☠ (@305Pirate) February 27, 2017 Elon Musk further announced in his Monday statement that he believes that next year’s planned trip around the moon could be the first of many, possibly as many as one or two a year in the immediate future, which could generate up to 20 percent of SpaceX revenue once the project gets off the ground. Despite his lofty plans and boasts of a high success rate, Elon Musk admits that space travel is inherently dangerous. What’s more, no government safety regulations exists for private space travel and tourism. The Congress passed the Commercial Space Launch Amendments Act in 2004, and it has been extended to 2023; the act allows for an unregulated “learning period” for private sector space exploration companies. According to the FAA, this may put the public at risk, and the agency has expressed interest in controlling and regulating private space travel when it expires. “Next year is going to be the big year for carrying people. This should be a really exciting mission that hopefully gets the world really exciting about sending people into deep space again.” SpaceX plans to fly two private citizens around the moon by late next year: Elon Musk https://t.co/YFb7mecdKe pic.twitter.com/uZyV8vc9HU — National Post (@nationalpost) February 27, 2017 According to Musk and SpaceX, the space tourists paying for a trip around the moon are aware of and have accepted the risks of their proposed, historic flight. “[These paying customers] are entering this with their eyes open, knowing that there is some risk here. We’re doing everything we can to minimize that risk but it’s not zero.” Government officials from the Government Accountability Office have also recently reported that the SpaceX vehicles involved in the proposed 2018 trip around the moon may not receive their official certifications until 2019, which casts some doubt on Elon Musk’s ability to send two private citizens to the moon and back in 2018. For his part, Musk claims SpaceX will be up to the task in the time-frame proposed. Provided Dragon 2 demo missions go well, SpaceX is highly confident of being able to fly US astronauts in 2018 https://t.co/usUto6QSi7 — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 18, 2017 What are your thoughts regarding the plan to send private space tourists on a trip around the moon next year? Do you think Elon Musk and SpaceX can pull it off on the timeline they are promising, or is this going to be another instance of broken space travel promises?

Quetta Gladiators and England fast bowler Tymal Mills will have to cn tend with a slow pitch in Sharjah Tuesday. (Image by Simon Watts/Getty Images) Tuesday’s playoff clash will mark the sixth time the two sides have faced off in Pakistan Super League play, and the series could not be tighter with Peshawar and Quetta taking two matches each, with one weather-related washout. But Peshawar and Pakistan batting star Muhammad Hafeez believes that his Zalmi side will enter the game with a mental edge over the Darren Sammy-led Gladiators. “As a team we are more confident, we have won games in high pressure matches, which matters most. We are very confident that we will play the final in Lahore,” Hafeez told GEO TV. “We wanted to top the tables, which we did. This is our big achievement.” The first 2017 PSL playoff match is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Gulf Standard Time at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, on Tuesday, February 28.

WWE News: Huge 6-Man Tag Match Booked For Triple H's Ring Return With New Stable

Wrestling fans everywhere are wondering if Triple H will face off with Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 33, and WWE just gave them all a big hint and a huge match. As the world awaits to see what Seth has to say about his status on Monday Night Raw, WWE has announced that Triple H is soon returning to the ring. Not only is he getting back into action, but he’s doing it in a huge six-man tag team match with his proposed new stable. For months, the rumors have been flying around that Hunter and Seth Rollins were going to have a match at WrestleMania 33. Those rumors received a big push at NXT Takeover: San Antonio and on the next Monday Night Raw when Seth called out Trips. Well, that led to an injury to Rollins which was caused by Samoa Joe, and now, that WrestleMania 33 bout has been up in the air. Fans are waiting to hear more word on Seth’s injury status, but WWE has just dropped a huge bombshell furthering this feud and it is with the in-ring return of HHH. Welcome The Destroyer…#WWEBuffalo – 3/10#WWEToronto – 3/11#WWEWhitePlains – 3/26https://t.co/KtF2azQj4v pic.twitter.com/HHol55C8L6 — Triple H (@TripleH) February 27, 2017 Yes, Trips tweeted out that he will return to the ring for three dates in March and those have been confirmed by the WWE Live Events page on the official website. As of now, he is scheduled for the Buffalo show on March 10, the Toronto show on March 11, and the White Plains event on March 26. While that is big enough in itself, the matches that he will be involved in is what makes this so much more exciting. HHH will team up with Universal Champion Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe to take on Finn Balor, Sami Zayn, and United States Champion Chris Jericho in a huge six-man match, per Wrestling Inc. Yes, that confirms the in-ring return of Finn Balor as well as has been rumored. He has been out of action due to injury since the end of August. This pairing of Trips with Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe lends a lot to the rumors of him starting a new heel stable on Monday Night Raw. It’s a rather interesting pairing of superstars on the other side of the ring for their opponents as well. Jericho makes sense due to his recent beatdown at the hands of Kevin Owens. Zayn makes sense as he was recently decimated by Samoa Joe on an episode of Raw and they may still end up with a match against one another at Fastlane this weekend. The final pairing is what is quite odd but could have WrestleMania implications too for either Trips or Samoa Joe. [Image by WWE] Finn Balor is just returning from injury and he needs in-ring work to get back up to speed as well, but is his inclusion in this match a sign? If Seth really can’t perform at WrestleMania 33, could Balor step in to take on Trips in a match? The official website of WWE released its Raw update and it now states that the former member of The Shield probably won’t be able to compete at the pay-per-view in April. “At this point, it seems unlikely that Rollins will be able to compete at this year’s WrestleMania. That would mean that the former WWE Champion will miss his second consecutive Show of Shows, this time thanks to Triple H’s ‘Destroyer.’ Will Rollins confirm this unfortunate news, or will he have another message entirely for The Cerebral Assassin and The Samoan Submission Specialist (Samoa Joe)?” All of that could really just be a clever swerve to throw off the fans, but if he can’t go, the company could come up with a storyline to have Balor take his place against Triple H. Or maybe, they are setting up Balor vs. Samoa Joe at WrestleMania 33, and that would send the fans into frenzied fits. No matter what, the pairing up of these three heels is very interesting and fun for fans. Comicbook even mentioned how Kevin Owens just hinted at being in a stable with “The Game” this past week on Monday Night Raw. Seriously, it is hard to imagine, but Orlando hosting the first main roster match between Samoa Joe and Finn Balor? It may just be a dream idea, but the possibility is there. It could very well be that Triple H is recruiting superstars for another version of The Authority or whatever he plans on calling his new stable. On the other hand, it could just be how feuds run together during the “Road to WrestleMania” season, but no matter what, Hunter is about to have his in-ring return and so is Finn Balor. Now, all that remains to be seen is if Seth Rollins will be healthy enough to wrestle by early April. [Featured Image by WWE]

'The Walking Dead' Season 7B Posts Near Record Breaking Ratings

The Walking Dead has officially pulled off something that most other powerhouse shows in the past have not been able to do. For a Season 7 of a show that was once reported to be in decline in the ratings, The Walking Dead just proved that it never lost its ratings mojo that it obtained nearly from the start. AMC is known to put out some of the best shows ever to hit cable television, joining the ranks of premium cable network HBO. But AMC has never really reflected that in the ratings until The Walking Dead came along and invented the niche of the horror genre and created an unlimited supply of demand. It is even hard to have ever theorized that a zombie show would have been the type to put the horror genre on the map – but it did. Now that The Walking Dead has enjoyed monstrous ratings since it crawled to the throne in Season 3, the show stagnated and even declined some over the past few seasons. But it never really lost the throne and now, it has expanded its lead over its closest challengers. Like Richonne? Then you’ll LOVE next week’s episode of #TheWalkingDead! Watch the nail-biting trailer here: https://t.co/DAobb4RLaU pic.twitter.com/44mVpDIZAn — The Walking Dead (@TheWalkingDead) February 27, 2017 In the Season 7B premiere of The Walking Dead, which was Episode 9, TWD proved that the show could retain and expand its numbers once again by pulling in nearly 17 million viewers. By comparison, that is just below what the Season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead pulled in, which was gigantic to say the least, according to Zap2It. Lets just break this down for you and see how The Walking Dead has progressed in its reports over the past two weeks. First of all, Episode 9 of The Walking Dead Season 7 pulled in just over 12 million viewers on the live plus same day viewing. Now what you might be thinking right now is that those numbers are fairly weak for a show like The Walking Dead, but they really are not and by comparison, the only cable TV show that night that even came close to those numbers was The Talking Dead, which pulled in nearly 5 million viewers. So as time goes by, the measurement of an episode’s ratings is still being counted in what is called a “Live Plus 7 Days” rating. That measures the amount of people who tuned in Sunday, February 12 to watch The Walking Dead, but also the amount of people who recorded the episode on their DVR and watched it at later date in the week. That also includes the people who watched that episode of The Walking Dead on the AMC streaming website. That episode of The Walking Dead pulled in 12 million viewers on the live airing, and it also pulled in 4.8 million viewers in the Live Plus 7 viewing. That brings the total haul for that episode to 16.8 million viewers, which is still one of the most impressive accomplishments for any show on cable, let alone a horror genre TV show. Fans of The Walking Dead should make no mistake, the content of these episodes in Season 7B are earning its haul. The storylines in Season 7B have been a bit more progressive, leading fans to see that the core group on The Walking Dead, which is Rick and his warriors, are about to take down the Saviors – to some degree. “Don’t talk, think. That’s a good rule of thumb for life.” Rick Grimes, The Walking Dead #TWD #walkingdeadquotes pic.twitter.com/L6psHk2e6n — Ricky Wayne (@RealRickyWayne) February 27, 2017 Over the past few episodes of The Walking Dead, viewers have been introduced to a new group that are a bit ominous, but they have agreed to join in the fight against Negan. Of course, they have conditions attached to their commitment. Fans of The Walking Dead also saw that the other main groups, The Kingdom and The Hilltop, have not really signed on for the fight, but they have some detractors that are willing to join. Watch Episode 12 of The Walking Dead next Sunday on AMC. [Featured Image by AMC]

Atlético Madrid: Lionel Messi Signing In Sites As Barcelona Contract Talks Stall

Following a frustrating 2-1 defeat at the hands of Lionel Messi and Barcelona on Sunday, Atlético Madrid President Enrique Cerezo made the shock announcement that his club is setting its sites on signing Messi away from the Camp Nou — after Messi himself drove home a late winner at the Vicente Calderon to effectively crush any Spanish La Liga title hopes the Atleti had remaining. With the win, Barcelona pull to within a point of arch-rivals Real Madrid who sit with 55 at the top of the La Liga table, albeit with a game in hand over the Catalan club. But Messi is apparently not a happy camper at Camp Nou. He has just one season left on his contract — a deal that will pay him approximately $21.5 million (U.S.), making him the highest paid footballer in the world, even without a new deal. That contract runs out after next season, however, and Messi is reportedly seeking a raise to the equivalent of $30 million. Whether that amount is too much even for Barcelona, or whether there is another issue, Messi and the club now appear to be far apart in their contract extension negotiations. The superstar, who has scored 35 goals across all competitions so far in the 2016-2017 season for Barcelona including 20 in La Liga alone, is represented in the talks by his father, Jorge Messi — and the elder Messi walked out of negotiations in Spain last week, flying back to his native Argentina. Could Lionel Messi be on his way from Barcelona to Atletico Madrid after contract talks stalled? (Image by Clive Rose/Getty Images) “Leo Messi’s father has already left and there is no date to meet again,” reported the Spanish sports news site AS on Friday. The site quoted a Barcelona source saying, “Every day that passes signing Messi gets more expensive.” Will that expense be a deterrent to a raid by Atlético Madrid, in what would certainly be the most dramatic signing in Spanish, or even world, football history? Not according to Cerezo, who when asked Monday about the prospect of resigning former Liverpool and Chelsea star Fernando Torres, made the stunning revelation. “We are trying to sign Messi, everything else is secondary,” Cerezo said, according to Britan’s Sun tabloid.

(Image by Denis Doyle/Getty Images) While the prospect of Messi departing Barcelona where he has played his entire club career is not a new one, the possible addition of Atlético Madrid to the Messi sweepstakes comes out of the blue — if indeed Cerezo was serious in his claim. Manchester City of England’s Premier League and Paris Saint-Germain, the dominant club in the French top flight, have been considered the most likely landing spots for “The Little Magician” should his contract talks with Barcelona fail to pan out.

But Barcelona is still considered the favorite to retain the service of Messi past June 20, 2018, when his contract expires. Despite the walkout by Messi’s father last week, talks between the two sides are still being described as “amicable.” [By Denis Doyle/Getty Images]

Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson Have A Long History Of Opposing Witch Hunts

Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson go back a long way, but few realize how far back. Who knew that Marilyn was an extra on 21 Jump Street? Manson told Loud Wire he has been tight with Depp “like forever.” “Johnny has also gone through his various things in life and I was on ’21 Jump Street’ when I was 19 — that’s funny, no one really knows that I was an extra. So I’ve known Johnny forever.” Even before 21 Jump Street, where they became very close, Marilyn Manson said he and Johnny knew each other. When Johnny Depp and his band ‘The Kids’ were playing the Ft. Lauderdale circuit, before either of them ever went to Hollywood, ‘Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids” were also playing the clubs in Ft. Lauderdale. Essentially Johnny Depp and Marylin Manson were members of rival bands during the same time frame in Ft. Lauderdale, when they were both teenagers. They traveled in the same circles, having mutual friends and likely a shared fan base. Though Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson have been friends since their teens, rocking out in the same clubs, they were in different bands. The two never jammed together back in the day, which in hindsight Manson thought is strange. Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson first played music together publicly in 2012 live at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards according to Loud Wire. Thus, Marilyn Manson is Johnny Depp’s oldest friend in Hollywood. Since then, of course, Depp has continued to amass a rather unusual collection of buddies. He belongs to the band Hollywood Vampires with band mates Alice Cooper and Joe Perry. Alice and Marilyn are both shock rockers. In addition, Johnny was close to Marlin Brando. Johnny Depp also befriended the late Hunter S. Thompson. Depp got to know Thompson while researching his role as Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. They two were fast friends. Johnny Depp is currently being criticized for paying three million dollars for Hunter S. Thompson’s lavish send-off. Johnny painstakingly followed Thompson’s request to have his ashes launched into the stratosphere. As well as giving Hunter S. Thompson’s widow a very large sum of money in exchange for the donation of Hunter’s notes for academic study. Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson also have a former death row inmate in their small circle of friends. Damien Echols of the Memphis Three, no that is not a rock band, has been very close to Depp and Manson. Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson, after seeing the documentary Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills which tells the story of the wrongful conviction of The Memphis Three decided to get involved in the case. See the video below. Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskellery Jr. were convicted of the sadistic ritual killing of three eight-year-old boys in 1993 and put on death row according to an old E News article. Johnny Depp, Marilyn Manson, and other celebrities befriended the Memphis Three, and especially Damien Echols who essentially joined Depp’s rather interesting circle of friends.

Johnny Depp gave guitar lessons to Damien Echols after his release. Depp made sure the three had what they needed to get a decent restart after their incarceration. Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp were there for Damien Echols who later wrote a book detailing his life on death row, from the age of 18 until he was released at the age of 37. The book titled Life After Death. Johnny Depp told MTV how he felt about the wrongful conviction of Damien Echols. “I believe it was Henry Rollins, also a longtime supporter and friend of Damien’s, who said it, and it’s absolutely true: it could have been any of us. Because, what, you look different? [The authorities] put their eyeball on Damien and didn’t take it off, even though everything around them — they didn’t look at the insane amount of holes in the case. They just looked at the guy with the black T-shirt and the long black hair. It was a witch hunt.” Johnny Depp, Marilyn Manson, Henry Rollins and other celebrities were powerful advocates for the Memphis Three. Marilyn Manson told Loud Wire how moved he was as he and Johnny helped Damien Echols acclimate to life in the twenty-first century after being incarcerated for 18 years. “That movie [Paradise Lost] makes me cry — it does. When I met him for the first time last night, it was like a brother. I felt like I’d known him forever. I’ve talked to him on the phone for the past year on-and-off but had never met him in person. It just felt like I had known him my whole life. He’s strong. He’s been through so much. It’s funny because we were having a very simple conversation that he was still amazed that he could send an email off an iPhone.” Johnny Depp, Marilyn Manson, and the others were quick to stand up against injustice. It would be easy to become insulated into a small group of wealthy rockers, and actors, but people like Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson have big hearts behind their rather bizarre costumes. They didn’t like that some people judge others based on their appearance. Johnny Depp, Marilyn Manson, Eddie Vedder, Henry Rollins and Natalie Maines chose to reach out and help three poor boys who were rotting in a federal prison. While Depp and Manson don’t always publicize their benevolent activities this one, in addition to Johnny’s generosity to Hunter S. Thompson and his widow have gained media attention. Johnny Depp came under fire from his ex-wife Amber Heard in 2016. Amber claimed abuse telling some odd story about having an iPhone thrown at her face, just days after Johnny Depp’s mother passed. Amber actually filed for a divorce just three days after Johnny lost his mother. Amber Heard’s divorce case sparked strange reports about Johnny Depp’s behavior, but Marilyn Manson was quick to defend his oldest and dearest friend. Marilyn told The Mirror Johnny was being crucified unjustly in the media. Fans can decide what to believe, but Marilyn powerfully defended his friend. “Lily-Rose is my goddaughter and I was there when Jack was born, so we go back. Johnny is one of the nicest people that I know – to the extent where it’s almost heartbreaking how kind he is to his friends and everyone around him. I know that he was completely crucified – unjustly.” Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were married only 15 months [Image by Jason Merritt/Getty Images] Recently Johnny Depp is under attack by his financial managers, who in an attempt to defend against Depp’s lawsuit against them for negligence and mismanagement have released a lot of information about his personal finances, at least some of which Johnny denies and allegedly has records to disprove. Will Marilyn Manson come to Johnny Depp’s defense again? Is it even important? Why is it a bad thing that he gave Hunter S. Thompson’s widow a lot of money in exchange for Hunter’s notes? Why is it a bad thing if Depp is investing his money in tangible assets like expensive wine and real estate? So what if Johnny Depp is buying up homes in a single cul-de-sac in Beverley Hills. Rumor has it that he plans to install a gate at the head of the cul-de-sac for increased security according to the observer. Depp reportedly wants to build underground tunnels between the homes. That sounds reasonable, and despite rumors, he can likely afford it. The tunnels would make great wine cellars. Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp have been friends for decades. They have helped people along the way and are generally nice people despite their odd appearance on stage. The Memphis Three were wrongfully jailed based on appearance with virtually no evidence. Henry Rollins called it a witch hunt. They were jailed for 18 years and could have been executed for wearing black Metallica shirts coupled with being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Johnny Depp was crucified unjustly in the media according to Marilyn Manson. Now Johnny is being criticized in the Media, this time for using his own money. Taking it out of his own funds that were supposed to be managed by a company that was too irresponsible to handle a simple matter such as paying Johnny’s property taxes, which resulted in $6 million in fines according to The Quebec Times.

Reducing Johnny to a cliche, “sensitive maverick,” she admits she believes the gossip, and no longer holds affection For Depp. “When Depp’s now ex-wife, Amber Heard, accused him last year of being “verbally and physically abusive” it was horrible in a shocking way. But the recent lawsuit revelations from his former business managers about the way he managed to blow through his money were just horrible in an embarrassing way.” Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper and others who actually know Johnny Depp, however, are not disillusioned. Marilyn and Johnny are as close as ever. Fans must choose who to believe. Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson are friends who oppose modern day witch hunts and crucifixions, but is Depp experiencing both in his own life? [Featured Image by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images]
