Following up from Tuesday’s post on selfies, this is so much better:
Ok, this doesn’t qualify as a selfie because it is quite clearly taken by a third party. All of Armitage’s
claws hands are in frame. But taken on the master’s phone, presumably? And of course this is posed, too. (No photo in which the subject is *aware* of being photographed, is ever “unposed”.) But this looks so much more real than any of the selfies created by the man himself… His smile looks genuine. Interestingly, although possibly taken on RA’s own phone, there are no filters at work, hooray. Either Rich has read our comments on the selfie post (unlikely), or maybe he didn’t want to disrespect the image of the two other people in this picture by throwing a soft focus over the photo. And it kind of gives us a look behind the scenes that provides more insight than a picture of his (admittedly beautiful) face in close-up. Oh, and leather jacket porn. More of this, please!
And secondly – MAJOR SPOILER WARNING. Don’t read on, if you do not want to be spoiled re. BS.
Epix published the BS season overview a couple of days ago. It is now up on their website here. I could not resist and had a look. BS appears to go old school spy thriller for their third season. Tbh, I snorted a little bit when I read about the theme of an impending Russian invasion in the Baltic. Are we back in 1982? Alright, Russia has been pretty aggressive when it comes to its South-East border with Ukraine, and annexed the Crimea. Not really sure whether a military excursion into Central Europe is realistic, though. But well, I guess BS had already fired their best shots in terms of cyberspying in season 1. Because *that* would be an interesting focus – the cold cyber war forced by Russia on the internet…
Anyhow, the overview already drops a few hints regarding Daniel’s story in season 3 which kind of confirms the fandom’s speculations about Richard’s involvement in the show – now and going forward. This looks even clearer when drilling down into the December highlights, also published by Epix on their website. I was momentarily baffled when I looked at these because there were only four episodes of BS listed there. But of course – the highlights only refer to the month of December, and the show will presumably continue after that. However, I am not sure whether I will continue watching then, because there is a major hint in the December highlights, pertaining to Daniel’s fate. Or how do you interpret the summary for episode 4? Kind of explains his quick in-and-out time on the set in Hungary, if you ask me.
So let’s enjoy Daniel’s snug bum while we can!
