Taylor Nolan and Derek Peth engaged during ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ finale

[ad_1]

Two people that must be thrilled that this season of “Bachelor in Paradise” didn’t get shut down completely are Taylor Nolan and Derek Peth. It’s been confirmed that the duo got engaged during a taping of the show.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Derek popped the question during the Season 4 finale aftershow on Wednesday. The news comes after Tuesday night’s episode in which some choice words put a rift between them, but it seems all things get patched up between them by the finale.

As People notes, the couple met during Season 4 of “Bachelor in Paradise” after appearing on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” respectively. Nolan appeared on Nick Viall’s season while Peth debuted on JoJo Fletcher’s. Since meeting, they’ve remained a relatively constant presence.

Likely in an effort to keep the circumstances of the proposal a reveal for the show, ABC is remaining tight-lipped about it. However, Peth posted a rather romantic shot of he and Nolan to Instagram with the caption, “Are we written in the stars baby, or are we written in the sand?”

In June, production on Season 4 of the hit spinoff series came to a sudden halt when producers worried something inappropriate had happened between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson in the pool. After an investigation and permission from the rest of the cast, production resumed – but without Olympios or Jackson.

Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Finale Director Is Spilling All the Tea on That Steamy Jon & Dany Sex Scene

[ad_1]

After a season of smoldering stares, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen finally gave into temptation and did the deed in Game of Thrones‘ season seven finale, giving fans what they wanted (two hotties knocking boots and another look at Kit Harington‘s naked booty, TBH) despite the fact that they’re, you know, aunt and nephew.

But if you found the scene tame in comparison to most of the sexual antics the show’s gotten up to in the past, there was a good reason for that. And the person you can blame? Director Jeremy Podeswa.

“With Jon and Dany’s scene, the important thing for me was that it wouldn’t be prurient in any way, that there’s a very strong undercurrent in that scene,” he told Indiewire. “It was shot very, very simply. It’s basically just one steady push in shot to Jon and Dany and then that very important look between them at mid-level. And then a one-shot looking at Jon, then looking down at Dany. It wasn’t about shooting a big lovemaking scene. Once they’re making love, that’s the story. There’s no reason to kind of linger on that.”

As the director explains it, it was more important to focus on what the act meant to the unknowingly incestuous couple, rather than the act itself. “But the real story within the story, was actually what was going on with their eyes and what’s happening — there’s an understanding between them that even though they know in some part of them that they shouldn’t really be doing this, they cannot not do it,” he added. “There’s some element of destiny that’s brought them together, and they can’t fight it.”

The irony of Jon and Dany (Emilia Clarke) finally consummating their growing passion while Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) and Sam (John Bradley) confirmed for viewers that the King of the North is, in fact, the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark (complete with interwoven flashbacks to their wedding and Jon’s birth) was absolutely intentional, as Podeswa explained it was meant to drive home just how fated these two are to one another. 

“It was exactly as written in terms of the intercutting of those scenes,” he explained. “It was also intercut with the younger Ned Stark and Lyanna telling the secret of Jon’s identity. All those things were meant to be interwoven, to give a kind of prismatic view of the history that brought Jon to this point, and Jon and Dany together in this sweep of destiny, in this sweep of history. It was very much written that way. My contribution to that was really making that cinematic and making this feel like a fluid movement through time as we’re seeing this all unfold.”

Exactly how Jon and Dany will choose to move forward once they learn the truth remains to be seen, but one thing we know for sure is that the wait for those answers is going to be a long one. With production on the eighth and final season set to begin in October and likely running as late as August 2018, THR reports that Game of Thrones’ return could possibly be delayed until 2019. Until then, you’ll find us rewinding Jon and Dany’s scene over and over again…

Were you expecting Jon and Dany’s romp in the sheets to be more explicit than it was? Or did they get it just right? Sound off in the comments below!

‘Deadliest Catch’ finale: ‘Shaken up’ Sig Hansen marks family milestone

[ad_1]

Ship captains worked through heartbreak in winding up their fishing on Tuesday night’s season finale of “Deadliest Catch.”

After last week’s devastating episode – in which a group of men, including a close friend of Sig Hansen, were presumed dead after being lost at sea – Tuesday’s show featured another crew in distress.

But this time, all survived.

A ship called Predator had a hole in it and its three-man crew was threatened by rising waters in the disabled boat.

But viewers saw U.S. Coast Guard helicopter pilots raising each of the three men up to safety in rescue baskets. It was a happy ending this time as all three of the Predator guys were survivors.

On the Northwestern, Edgar took over because his brother, captain Sig, was so “shaken up” about the fishermen of the Destination dying that he told Edgar he was going home.

Edgar sighed about their friends who perished, “My heart goes out to their families,” and vowed to finish out the Northwestern’s season on a high note.

One of the deck hands commented that he was nervous without Sig and Edgar knew he had to earn their respect. Although the men were skeptical, Edgar led the boat into shallower waters and they got strong crab hauls.

Each Northwestern crew man would wind up with $45,000 for working the season. Hansen phoned his brother and said, “I’m proud of you, man. You’re a true fisherman at heart.”

After getting off the call with Sig, Edgar began to cry.

At the end of the episode, viewers saw Sig with his wife celebrating the wedding of their daughter Mandy to Hansen’s deck hand, Clark Pederson.

“This is our reward….This is what life’s all about,” Sig said, popping a champagne cork at the nautical-themed wedding.

Tuesday’s “Deadliest Catch” episode also showed how the other skippers fared.

Wild Bill Wichrowski suffered a failing generator on the Summer Bay but his engineers fixed the problem.

After hauling in decent crab pots, Wichrowski hugged deck boss Nick McGlashan, telling the cameras he was happy to have helped McGlashan in his rehabilitation.

Jake Anderson’s Saga came to a season’s end with his deck boss Hannes Huswick breaking his hand on a freezer door.

But Anderson begged Huswick to continue working, and the brave crew man did.

They nabbed 602 crab despite Huswick’s injury. In fact, it was the Saga’s high pot of the season.

Anderson crowed that is “sure feels good for once to win” after his dreadful time with crew and mechanical issues.

Meanwhile, Sean Dwyer’s crew on the Brenna A also finished strong and wound up earning $48,000 each.

Fans also got a last look at retiring captain Johnathan Hillstrand, who has taken up another passion– car racing!

Will Daenerys Targaryen Have Jon Snow’s Baby? And 9 More Game Of Thrones Finale Questions

[ad_1]

She clearly used her pregnancy to win over Tyrion. It makes her a slightly more sympathetic character. He let his guard down, allowing himself to be played by the ultimate player in the game of thrones. But is she really pregnant? Or is she just using the pregnancy to get what she wants? Honestly, I don’t think Cersei is lying. She believes she’s pregnant, but if we are to believe Maggy the Frog’s prophecy, that baby (if there is one) isn’t being carried to full term. Still, Cersei’s really milking this pregnancy for all it’s worth.

It also complicates the “Jaime kills Cersei” theory. Would he really kill Cersei knowing she was carrying his child? Jaime has done some morally questionable things, but I just don’t think he has it in him to kill his unborn child. But if Cersei were to lose the baby, it could be the thing that takes her completely over the edge into unredeemable territory. If that were to happen, she might be one step closer to becoming the Night Queen.

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Finale Director Talks Dragonpit Summit

[ad_1]

SPOILER ALERT: Do not keep reading if you have not seen the Season 7 finale of “Game of Thrones,” titled “The Dragon and the Wolf.”

The “Game of Thrones” Season 7 finale was filled with big moments, as many players in the game came together or reunited in the face of the White Walker threat.

Jeremy Podeswa, who directed both the finale and the season premiere, said that the meeting of many main characters in King’s Landing had a gravitas to it that was obvious during filming.

“I felt the summit at the Dragonpit was going to be a big moment,” Podeswa told Variety. “It features all these characters that we know and love, characters who have never met before and characters who haven’t seen each other for a long time. It’s laden with tension because we don’t know if Cersei set a trap for them or not or how badly this all could go. For me that was a very exciting sequence, to work with all that cast and with all these reunions.”

Podeswa also pointed to the reunion scene between Cersei and Tyrion as well as the final scene between Cersei and Jaime as other moments that stuck out during the episode. But one scene that Podeswas said choked him up in particular was the death of Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, given the strength of the performance of Aidan Gillen.

“Aidan is such a great actor and it was such a joy to see him do this scene,” he said. “You really see another side of Littlefinger that you’ve never seen before, which is vulnerability. He’s a master manipulator, always in control, and can play games with the best of them. But here’s a situation where the tables are completely turned on him and he has to fight for his life. I think what’s surprising is how much you care about his death, and that’s all Aidan…In that moment, you can’t help but feel for him.”

Podeswa also had nothing but praise for Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, who play Arya and Sansa Stark respectively, and their ability to inhabit these characters so well after seven seasons.

“It sounds like a cliché but they’re really like fine-tuned instruments,” he said. “They don’t need very much. Their instincts are incredibly great. But there’s always the little play within each scene and they’re always willing to try things and make things better.”

Then in the final scene of the finale, we see Tormund and Beric watching over the edge of the wall as the Night’s King appears with his resurrected dragon. As The Wall comes down, it remains unclear whether or not Tormund or Beric survived.

“I think they were certainly in a very perilous situation when we last saw them so it doesn’t look good, but we don’t actually see them die so anything can happen,” Podeswa teased.
