Helga has wonderful news for her lover, Floki, everyody’s favorite crazy boat builder. She’s carrying Floki’s child. Both wonderstruck and woeful, Floki pities the poor child for having such a father, but Helga will have none of that moaning. Buoyed by her faith in him, Floki asks Helga to marry him, dropping to his knees to greet the child inside her. They have been such good friends to the gods that surely the gods will bless them. Helga wants Ragnar’s blessing, too, but Floki refuses. Ragnar has everything already, but he can’t have Floki and Helga.

Could Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton be in love?
All epic romance novels have a “delicious despair” period—that dark, dark time when every possible chance for a happy ending for your beloved pair seems doomed, and the ashes of all your hopes and dreams for them surround you. Still, you have faith that they will, in fact, pull it out of the fire and attain that glorious HEA. Somehow. Some way. After all, isn’t that the golden rule of romance?
The Mindy Project, while not a romance novel, is often described as a romantic comedy series, and I 100% believe that creator/executive producer/head writer/star Mindy Kaling fully intends to follow the Mindy/Danny romance through to, if not an HEA, a “Happily for Now.” Which means that while “Be Cool” saw Danny break up with Mindy after only a few weeks of secretly dating—sending fans into a tizzy of delicious despair—their story is far from over. As in, it’s most likely just gettin’ started.

Note: Beware of MAJOR MOVIE SPOILERS and very minor book spoilers.
You get the feeling both from the movie and this book that Thomas will always leave us just a bit unsatisfied, but a few threads left dangling in the movie are picked up again here. Among the tidbits doled out from Veronica’s (third-person) perspective are how she and Keith navigate her decision to stick around town permenantly, the way she and naval-officer/father-rescuer/straight-up-hero Logan (!!!!) deal with a long-distance relationship after finally reuniting, what Mac working for Mars Investigations entails, whether or not Dick still parties like a frat boy (spoiler: in case the movie left any doubt, he does), and why Veronica was driving Logan’s car at the end of the movie.

3. You scream like a teenage girl at a One Direction concert when you hear that Nora has a new release.
4. You know who Nora is. She doesn’t need a last name.
We’re rounding up what happened in Season 1 of Orphan Black (Kira! Paul and Sarah! Cosima’s Sickness!) and speculating on what’s to come in Season 2.
…Anyway, so on the surface the episode was about Mindy trying to get home to Cliff so that she could try to win him back, and Danny trying to keep Mindy with him for “emotional support or whatever” once he’d finally decided to go see his dad. And then underneath all that you had the real driving force of the episode, which was Danny realizing exactly how much he wants and needs Mindy by his side for everything from facing his dad to wandering in the desert to braving turbulence 10,000+ feet in the air.
And the episode also went to pains to show how these guys will always, always come back to each other, even after huge, hurtful fights where they say things they can’t ever actually take back despite not meaning them/saying them for the wrong reasons. Because while sometimes they bring out the worst in each other, most of the time they bring out the very best. Which is basically what Danny tells Mindy under the cover of helping her write an apology to Cliff. (Seriously, check out that quote at the beginning of this post and tell me he wasn’t talking about the two of them, consciously or not.)
