riddle compulsion causing him another potential problem. Seems Lucius is pretty good at riddles too.Gotham

MORE WONDER WOMAN SET PHOTOS 11/30/15 @ 12:19 pm EST
During his recent appearance at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in San Jose, Arrow
commented on the flashfoward scene at the end of the season four premiere. The moment saw Oliver Queen standing over a grave with Barry Allen asking if he was okay. It’s a moment looming throughout the season, if not directly addressed since. And though fans speculate on the identity of the deceased, it continues to be a mystery — even to Amell.
“That’s not for me to know. That’s for our producers to know,” said the actor. “It’s only for me to know if and when I need to do something if we end up doing another flash forward in the show.” In order to shoot the scene, there were a few general details he needed to know. “I just needed to simply know that the person I wanted to kill was a him and that the person that was in the grave was someone I cared a lot about,” Amell explained. “That’s all I needed to know. I don’t need to know the specifics until if and when we shoot another flash forward scene if there was something else that I had to say.”

Walking DeadCONTRIBUTORS OF MARS – ARIEL MEDEL DRAWS FANS INTO THE WORLD OF JOHN CARTER11/29/15 @ 11:58 pm EST
may dominate screens with two television series and a webisode, comic books with one of the best selling series and the best selling collections, and extending its reach into novels, games, toys, statues and more… but there’s still one place it hasn’t dominated. Until now.
The pet store. Because every Walking Dead
fan needs to extend their love of the show/comic/game/ap to their faithful friend.
Here are ten Walking Dead
toys and accessories currently on sale.
The Daryl Collar with Bandana. Because men of a certain type with a certain dog love Daryl.
A Daryl Leash, if the bandana is just too fancy.
A Daryl Wings Dog T-shirt as the weather begins to nip.
Daryl’s Squirrels On A Rope Plush Tug Toy. Seriously this is an officially sanctioned item. ouldn’t your dog prefer real squirrels to rip apart?
Fight The Dead, Fear The Living Leash when ypu just want to spread the fear…
A Severed Walker Arm Tug Toy. Again, this is considered a perfectly acceptable toy for pets. Maybe you can train them up to the real thing.
The Gvernor Plush Chew Toy so you can re enact his death scene again and again.
Walker Bait Dog T-Shirt if you want to make your dog a target
A Well Walker Plush Tug Toy for the more esoteric Walking Dead reference.
That’s all for now, but what other possibilities could there be? A Whining Carl plush toy? A Rick Sheriff dog hat? Lucille?
