Salem Season 2 Teaser: Mercy Prepares for War

Mercy Lewis is taking control.

The Witch Wars are on, and it appears Mercy will play an integral part. Even better, she’ll be taking what was once used as a form of torture against her and using it as she sees fit.

As we learned previously, the Mary is reigning over Salem after enacting the Grand Rite, but lurking around are many who want to usurp her power. In the original Salem Season 2 teaser Anne Hale was lurking in the trees. Now Mercy is making plans.

Mercy was messed up pretty good first as a pawn in Mary Sibley’s attempt to enact the Grand Rite and then turned on Mary after being made a witch. Her powers grew incredibly fast.

Which side will Mercy be on? Will she be one of the threats to Mary’s leadership? We’ll have to wait until April to find out.

In the meantime, check out the clip and watch Salem online if you need to catch up!

Lily will be the type of woman who will go to any lengths to protect her loved ones (doesn’t that describe everyone in Mystic Falls?!), but we have no idea exactly who she loves.

Are we going to lose Liz Forbes and discover another mother entering the mix? What are your thoughts, TVD Fanatics? How will Lily fit into the picture?

Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts. You can watch The Vampire Diaries online if you’re in need of a quick fix.

Aayan Killed by Haqqani -- Homeland


Aayan’s death on Homeland was shocking, even if it could have been expected because Carrie really invested herself in the young man and believed he might be free from the savagery of Haqqani since they were blood relatives. Instead, Haqqani shot him in the head just after it was revealed he also had Saul as a hostage. From there, the race to save Saul turned the season around.

New York City, December 17, 2014

weather review sky 121714???? Puffy white-and-gray clouds were gathering in the west and moving eastward against a gentle blue sky. The sun shone up Broadway onto the taxis and the taxi-colored cases of the crosswalk signals. It was possible to remember that the steel drum playing “O Come, All Ye Faithful” was capable of signifying the tropics and not merely the subway platform. Overhead, downtown, the clouds bridged the rooftops; off above Lower Manhattan they were dense, with an intense glow seeping between them. Red roses and other spilled garbage lay crushed in the gutter. The breeze put a gentle chill on the jaw hinge and earlobes. There couldn’t be a whole day’s worth of this, and there wasn’t: the clouds closed over the afternoon, shutting the light off even earlier than early. The cold after dark had a pinch to it, leaving fingers and thumb tips feeling raw.

Antigovernment Speakers Denounce Washington State Gun Law, Threaten Violent Revolt

Antigovernment Speakers Denounce Washington State Gun Law, Threaten Violent Revolt

[Cross-posted at Hatewatch.]

With cries of “Second Amendment remedies” to “government tyranny” ringing in their ears, a crowd of several hundred people gathered near the state Capitol in Olympia, Wa., on Saturday, to voice their defiance of Initiative 594, the new state law requiring background checks on most gun sales.

Most people in the gathering carried firearms of one kind or another, and a number of them openly exchanged weapons as a way to make a statement supporting the “We Will Not Comply” rally. There was even a table marked “I-594 Violation Station,” where attendees could openly swap or sell firearms.
