Once Upon a Time Delivers a Huge Twist That Will Definitely Please Hook and Emma Fans


And they lived happily ever after! (Warning, spoilers  ahead for Once Upon a Time’s Oct. 12 episode. Do not continue reading if you don’t want to be spoiled!)

Though Jennifer Morrison left Once Upon a Time last season, Emma Swan returned in the rebooted seventh season’s second episode, and fans were definitely not disappointed. Why? Because she’s pregnant. With Hook’s (Colin O’Donoghue) baby! And they say fairy tale dreams don’t come true. 

The other major twist? The Hook we met in last week’s premiere, the cop in Hyperion Heights who is under the latest curse, is not OUR Hook. So yes, Hook and Emma fans, your fan-favorite couple is happy together, and we still get to see Hook’s handsome face on the show each week in the form of Detective Rogers. Win-win!

“I was really happy that they got their happy ending, to be honest,” O’Donoghue told Entertainment Weekly of the big reveal. “It had been such a long journey for those two characters, and such a difficult journey that I was glad to see that, in the end, they get their happy ending, because that was the whole point of the musical episode, and the big number with a happy beginning right before the Black Fairy’s curse hit. For me, I think it was the right way to go for those two characters.”

He continued to praise the twist, saying, “It’s a very clever way of making sure the Captain Swan fans…get their happy ending after going on such a big journey with them for the last few seasons. I think it’s a clever way of us being able to move on with a new version of Hook.”

Co-creator Eddy Kitsis also spoke out about the Captain Swan happy ending, telling TVLine, “This was really the next step in the relationship between them. They’re a newly married couple and it’s the cycle of life. The audience was worried we’d kill Emma or do something crazy, but the truth is they’re living their lives in Storybrooke, happy.

What did you think of OUAT‘s huge reveal? Are you excited to see Hook and Emma as parents? Sound off in the comments!

OUAT airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ Racks Up Huge Numbers


UPDATED: Taylor Swift’s new single “Look What You Made Me Do” might be getting mixed reviews from critics, but there’s no question the song captured the pop-osphere in its first hours.

From the moment of its release at 11:30 p.m. ET Thursday, the song has racked up a total of 184,589 download sales, while the rest of Swift’s catalog is up 98% Friday from Wednesday, according to figures released by BuzzAngle Music Saturday afternoon; streaming figures are expected Sunday. Estimates are the single could top 550,000 in sales alone; Swift singles “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (623,000) and “Shake It Off” (544,000) are her previous first-week best-sellers, although comparisons are unfair because download sales in general have dropped significantly in recent years.

On YouTube, the lyric video for the song reached more than 19 million views in just 24 hours (it was topping 26 million at press time), breaking the record for most views for a lyric video over that amount of time, previously held by the Chainsmokers/Coldplay collaboration “Something Just Like This,” which racked up merely 9 million. The song also shot up to the No. 1 spot on iTunes within 30 minutes and remains there.

A rep for Spotify confirmed on Saturday that Swift has set the new global first day streaming record for the platform with over 8 million streams for “Look What You Made Me Do.”

At radio, “Look What You Made Me Do” was, not surprisingly, the No. 1 song on MediaBase at midafternoon Friday, nearing 2,000 spins for the day.

iHeartRadio was fast on the bandwagon, world-premiering the song on its 144 pop and adult contemporary stations to what it called 20 million total audience spins (factoring each stations’ total listening audience every time the song is played), which they say is “a more accurate comparison to each individual person listening to a single stream.”

One format that wasn’t quite as enthusiastic was country radio. According to radio website All Access, as of Friday afternoon, only six country stations had played Swift’s song for a total of seven spins, including Cumulus’ WNSH in New York.

WQMX Akron PD Sue Wilson, who did play it, told the trade, “I didn’t want our listeners to have to go elsewhere to hear it, so we’re using it as our big trending topic.  Our morning show got just a couple of calls, and they weren’t positive. One said, ‘Don’t play it again, it’s not country.’”

The official music video for “Look What You Made Me Do” will debut during Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards. Director Joseph Kahn already had to take to social media to defend some fans’ charges that the teaser echoes Beyonce’s “Formation.”  The full “Reputation” album is set for release on November 10.

Miguel Cabrera Sparked A Huge Brawl Between The Yankees And Tigers



Former Triple Crown winner and Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera can add another accomplishment to his already-accomplished career: he sparked a real, live baseball fight.

The Tigers slugger got into it on Thursday in a getaway day afternoon tilt against the New York Yankees. Cabrera came to the plate with two outs in the bottom of the sixth with the Tigers leading the Yankees, 6-3.

He stopped at the plate to chat with New York catcher Austin Romine, and the argument got heated. Romine took off his catcher’s mask, and something was said that got Cabrera angry. He immediately pushed Romine, squared up, and threw a left hook right into Romine’s face. Cabrera — who bats and throws righty — then switched up and threw a right as Romine hit the dirt.

Huge gallery from Monterey’s Italian-only meetup



  • Pinterest

This year’s Concorso Italiano featured the usual acres and acres of late-model Lamborghinis and Ferraris, but also had a nice collection of Fiats, Lancias and Alfas, more so than in recent years, it seemed.

“I don’t know where they came from but I’m thrilled they’re here,” said Concorso president Tom MacDowell.

Officially, this year’s event celebrated Ferrari’s 70th anniversary and the Maserati Ghibli’s 50th, and there were several examples of each of those. But with all the Ferraris and Maseratis that show up anyway, that happens just about every year at this sprawling show, and everybody loves it.

One standout this year was the Kode O (say “zero”). After debuting it the day before at The Quail, designer Ken Okuyama brought his Kode O one-off concept car to Concorso and parked it on the lawn. The angular, intense, V12-powered Aventador-based Kode O glowered at the showgoers, as if threatening them with its sharp edges. Who knows, maybe we can drive it one day and slice through traffic?

Softer, more flowing shapes were found in the Lancia and Alfa sections of the show, which seemed to have a greater variety of classic cars. There were two Zagato-bodied Lancia Appias, for instance, and one Appia four-door. But there were also Flaminias and Fulivias as well as Alfas galore from years gone by. There were even two original Fiat Multiplas.

Designer Tom Tjaarda, who recently passed away, was honored with a nice tribute. Designer Pete Brock was interviewed. There was a fashion show. And this year seemed to feature a few more of the picnic-style gatherings in and among the classic cars that were once a staple of the show.

With a stable location at the wonderful, sprawling Black Horse Gold Club, Concorso promises to be molto fun for years to come.

Mercedes-Benz’s $2.8 Million Project One Hypercar Gets Huge Power From a Tiny Engine


We don’t know a whole lot about the Project One. We have no idea how fast it will go, or how quickly it will reach 60 or 125 mph from a standstill. We have only a vague sense of what the thing looks like, formed by adding wishful thinking to annoyingly vague teaser images. We don’t even know when we’ll know more.

Of course, expectations are high for a car that will cost roughly $2.8 million (to start) and represents Mercedes-Benz’s bid to join the elite club of ‘hypercars.’ Developed by Merc’s in-house go-fast division, AMG, and slated to go on sale in 2019, the Project One will rival million-dollar vehicles like the forthcoming Aston Martin ValkyrieMcLaren BP23, and Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta.

And this week, we learned how Mercedes expects to do it, when AMG chief Tobias Moers shared details on the heart of the Project One: its powertrain and suspension setup.

Mercedes’ engineers couldn’t just stuff the biggest engine they could find under the hood, cover everything in carbon fiber, and call it good. Summiting this automotive peak takes brawn, sure, but brains are more important. So for help, the AMG engineers borrowed a pile of tech from the company’s uber-successful Formula 1 team.


The Project One gets most of its oomph from a turbocharged 1.6-liter V6 engine. That may seem minuscule for this sort of use case, but consider that this machine is a close cousin to the one that powered the car Lewis Hamilton drove to an F1 championship in 2015. Of course, some accommodations had to be made.

Many of these changes have to do with how, and how high, the engine revs. The engine in an “ordinary” Mercedes sports car, say the $158,000 AMG GTR, is sized and tuned to make max power around 6,500 rpm. This limits heat and wear, allows for slightly greater tolerances in internal equipment, heightens longevity, and limits vibration.

A Formula One racecar will more than double that number, reaching about 13,500 rpm, and the Project One’s engine is a lot closer to that primal scream than to the roar of the GTR. The small, free-spinning motor will redline at an outrageous 11,000 rpm. (Where the F1 car idles around 4,000 rpm, the hypercar will rest at a more reasonable 1,200.) As in the racecar, a manually shiftable eight-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels.

That lets the little engine crank out 700 horsepower, more than you’ll ever need but not nearly enough to justify that $2.8 million price tag. Especially not when you consider that the $85,000 Dodge Demon makes more than 800 hp and does wheelies. To make up the difference, Mercedes engineers equipped each front wheel with a battery-powered motor good for 161 hp.

That pushes the total above 1,000 horses. More importantly, it enables torque vectoring, when the computer spins one wheel faster or slower than another, providing superior handling and grip in corners. (It’s physics!) A third electric motor keeps the turbocharger spinning at full tilt, promising instantaneous power by quashing turbo lag.

The Project One can even drive on nothing but electricity, using the front wheel motors and a battery pack that sits under the feet of the driver and passenger and is powered by regenerative braking. You won’t go more than 20 miles, but if you really need to avoid that extra charge on gas-burning cars, it’s a handy feature.

Staying Grounded

All that power presents another quandary: How to keep the svelte, 2,750 Project One on the ground. The engineers’ solutions include a suspension system that lowers the car’s ride height significantly at speed and when the driver selects performance-oriented race mode, to limit lift. And there’s a good chance the so far unseen Project One body could be clad in aerodynamic aids that will generate enough downforce to keep the tires stuck to the asphalt on the straightaways, without sacrificing speed in the corners.

One thing you don’t get in this new halo car: The company’s much-touted suite of driver-assistance technologies. While plenty of Mercedes sedans can now even drive themselves (in limited circumstances, with human supervision), anyone behind the wheel of the Project One is fully in charge at all times. Seems like an OK deal.

Of course, none of this comes cheap, and the $2.8 million base price is just the start. Mercedes suggests the major powertrain elements may need replacing as often as every 30,000 miles, or about as much as the average American drives every two years.

But the lucky 275 buyers likely won’t be using the Project One for the daily commute to the factories and countries they own. And even if they do, it’s not like their accountants will worry about them spending a few hundred thousand more, especially if it keeps them happy until the next, best hypercar comes along.
