Wow. With only one episode remaining in season 9, “The Walking Dead” just hit us with one of the biggest emotional bombshells in the history of a series full of them. The Whisperers finally made their big statement, and that statement left a bunch of folks from the Kingdom, Alexandria and Hilltop dead.
In a sequence ripped nearly straight from the pages of the “Walking Dead” comics, Alpha (Samantha Morton) and her Whisperers managed to capture Daryl (Norman Reedus), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Carol (Melissa McBride) and Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura), held them captive overnight and then Alpha delivered a speech to Daryl about how the Whisperers can live peacefully alongside the communities so long as they stay out of Whisperer territory. And if they don’t abide by those rules then

[Spoiler alert: While the following article doesn’t get deep into plot points, discussing music choices does involve revealing a couple of the movie’s best jokes, so if you’re especially averse to humor spoilers, wait until you’ve seen “Us” to read further .]
“Us” makes prominent use of the mid-‘90s hip-hop hit “I Got 5 On It” — as heard in the trailer — in both song form and an eerie instrumental score reprise, as well as key cuts from the present and distant past by Janelle Monae and Minnie Riperton. But the choices that are going to
Alright, you’ve seen Jordan Peele’s “Us,” and all you want to do is call your friends and dissect every detail and plot point. We’re here to help and to take you through some of the theories that have been floated on the world wide web since its debut.
There’s so much to comb through in this film, from obvious imagery to not-so-blatant thematic explorations. Of course, writer and director Peele wants to point out the two sides to our personalities, that we often have an animalistic side that we can’t always push down.
“Us” stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Shahadi Wright Joseph and Alex Evans. It follows a family that goes to their vacation house in Santa Cruz to discover they are
CBS News plotted a Monday primetime special to cover the disclosure of a summary of the report prepared by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that had examined Russian influence on the 2016 U.S. presidential election and probed whether President Donald Trump or his campaign had any ties to it, while ABC News brought “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir to deliver its Sunday evening newscast and Fox News Channel, MSNBC and CNN all reworked parts of their Sunday anchor duties to explore the matter more in depth.
“The summary is irrelevant,” O’Donnell wrote in a brief tweet. “Only the full report matters.”
In Barr’s official summary sent to Congress, it was reported that Mueller’s investigation found no evidence that Donald Trump or his presidential campaign conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 presidential election. But on the matter of obstruction of justice charges, Barr wrote that “while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
Despite this, Barr wrote that the Department of Justice concluded that the evidence Mueller found was “not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.” That decision not
Jordan Peele’s “Us” is chock full of references to Michael Jackson, starting when Lupita Nyongo’s younger self wins a “Thriller” t-shirt at the Santa Cruz boardwalk in the 1980s.
But Peele and his costume designer Kym Barrett threw several more nods to the late King of Pop, who is back in the news given the documentary “Leaving Neverland,” in which two men accuse Jackson of sexual abuse (accusations that his estate has disputed).
The doppelgängers in the film, or The Tethered, wear red jumpsuits and one single glove — just as Jackson wore a red jumpsuit during his famed 1983 music video “Thriller,” and Jackson’s single white glove covered in silver sequins made its TV debut during his performance of “Billy Jean” at Motown’s 25th anniversary in 1983. The single glove would become
“Authorities in Dubai have not received any request for a performance by singer R. Kelly nor are there any venues that have been booked,” the government’s Dubai Media Office said, adding that Kelly “has not been invited by the Dubai royal family for a performance.”
