It may take a while before The CW releases the premiere episode of “The Originals” season 5, but spoilers about the supernatural drama’s final season continues to come out.
One of the most anticipated events in the show’s upcoming fifth and final season is the reunion between “The Vampire Diaries” character Caroline Forbes (Candice King) and Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan).
The former lovers-turned-close friends were last seen in the series during a crossover episode with “The Vampire Diaries” titled “A Street Car Named Desire.” But fans of the series will finally see them together again in at least three episodes before the series finale.
While details about Caroline’s agenda for visiting New Orleans again remains under wraps, King revealed in an interview with US Weekly in October 2017 that it will be something to look forward to. “I can say that I worked a lot with Joseph Morgan,” the actress stated. “The Klaroline fans will be very happy.”
It can also be assumed that the reunion has something to do with Klaus’ daughter Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) since she was enrolled in Caroline’s school at the end of season 4.
Reports also revealed that Klaus and Hope will be apart in the fifth season of “The Originals” since he was stuck in the Hollow when the previous season concluded. But the young Mikaelson will reportedly do everything that she can to fix that, which could possibly change their situation.
The upcoming season will also focus on Elijah’s (Daniel Gillies) amnesia. Since all his memory has been wiped out, it can be expected to see the season feature how he will be reunited with his family. He will also meet a new friend named Antoinette (Jaime Murray), who may or may not help him in his situation.
The CW is scheduled to air the premiere episode of “The Originals” season 5 on April 20, at 8 p.m. EST.
A Christian ministry known for combating human trafficking and prostitution has helped “Fifty Shades Freed” actress Arielle Kebbel in her quest to find her missing sister.
Kebbel, 32, took to Instagram on Feb. 3 to announce that her sister, Julia, went missing after a fire broke out in her Los Angeles apartment on Jan. 31.

“My SiSTER JULIA KEBBEL is MISSING. Pls REPOST. She was last seen in Silver Lake, walking her chocolate lab, Cindy, at 11 p.m. wed night,” Arielle’s initial message read. “If you have seen her or know anything about her, pls DM me and call 911.”
The actress updated social media followers on Tuesday, letting the world know that her sister has been found. While she left out details, Kebbel named Christian organization SERT Ministries when thanking people for their help.
“It is with great joy and relief that I share the wonderful news that my sister, Julia, and her dog, Cindy, have been found safe! While we do ask for privacy at this time, my family and I want to thank everyone for all of your love and support over the past two weeks,” she wrote on Instagram. “We are so grateful to every single person who helped spread the word and joined us in our search. We would also like to thank the Los Angeles Police Department, KlaasKIDS, SERT Ministries and Anonymity Rescue for their efforts in bringing Julia home.”
The acronym for SERT Ministries stands for “search, evangelize, rescue, train.” In a description of the Christian organization on its website, SERT names Jesus as an inspiration behind its reason for rescuing missing people.
“Our vision is to rescue persons who are missing and/or held against their will or who think that it’s impossible to get out of the trapped circumstance they have found themselves in,” the description states. “Jesus has a plan for their lives and His plan certainly isn’t one of bondage.”
Korean pop sensation IU is returning to the small screen this year for new drama “My Mister,” but not all her fans are thrilled.
Earlier this week, South Korean network tVN revealed that the singer, along with other cast — lead actor Lee Sun Gyun (“The First Shop of Coffee Prince”), Oh Dal Soo (“The Thieves), Song Sae Byuk (“The Sound of a Flower”), Lee Ji Ah (“Athena: Goddess of War”), Shin Goo (“Grandpas Over Flowers”), and relative newcomer Jang Ki Yong — all attended the series’ first script reading.
The series follows a cold and rugged city girl, IU, who struggles to get by with her daily life. She will meet “ahjussis three musketeers,” or middle-aged men Lee Sun Gyun, Oh Dal Soo, and Song Sae Byuk. Despite their different lifestyles, the four will find comfort in each other as the story progresses.
The first look at the series shows the three men caught up in each of their problems, with IU looking on, as if unconcerned.
When the 24-year-old hitmaker was rumored to be joining the series, her fans were outraged to find out that she was playing a role opposite Lee Sun Gyun, a married 42-year-old man.
IU’s last known relationship was with singer-songwriter Jang Kiha, a man 11 years her senior, whom she started dating when she was 20 years old. The two broke up in 2017, but reportedly remained friends. Throughout their relationship, the so-called “nation’s little sister” was plagued with a number of scandals, most notably her alleged sexualization of Zeze, a young book character popular in the country, for her album “Chat Shire.”
Now fans are afraid her new role would bring back issues already buried in the past.
IU was last seen on TV in 2016 in the hit drama series “Moon Lover: Scarlet Heart Ryeo,” which was based on Chinese novel “Bu Bu Jing Xin.”
A North Carolina mother is serving a week in jail for having her daughter baptized without the permission and the presence of the child’s father, according to reports.
District Court Judge Sean Smith ruled that Kendra Stocks, 36, of Charlotte acted in “bad-faith disregard” by having her daughter baptized without consulting the father, Paul Schaaf, violating the terms of a custody battle decision, WSOC reported.
Her seven-day sentence began Friday.
In a 2016 decision, the court granted Schaaf, a practicing Catholic, the authority on all legal custody decisions, including the child’s religion. The judge had warned both Schaaf and Stocks that any breach of the terms could lead to a fine or a jail term.
Schaaf learned about the child’s baptism through a Facebook post by Stocks, who is also a practicing Catholic.
Even though both parents wanted their daughter to be raised in the church, court files mention disagreement over religious matters which had delayed the child’s baptism.

“The mother has acted selfishly by depriving the father of the ability to be present at an event that was extraordinarily important to him,” the court documents said.
Stocks was originally sentenced to 10 days in jail, but it was later cut to seven after she appealed.
“I’m scared,” The Charlotte Observer quoted Stocks as saying. “I’m sad about what has happened. I don’t regret having her baptized. That was in her best interest … I don’t see how this is in the best interest of the family. Her father is sending her mother to jail.”
Schaaf’s attorney Jonathan Feit said the mother is not being penalized for baptizing her child, but for disobeying a judge.
“For our system to work, there ought to be consequences for willfully and intentionally violating a court order,” he was quoted as saying. “I teach my children that. I reject the notion that anybody else is responsible for what is happening besides Ms. Stocks herself.”
Schaaf and Stocks were together for six months, but they separated after Stocks allegedly refused to include Schaaf in the child’s last name, according to court documents.
“I’ll get through it and hopefully come out a better person,” Stocks told Channel 9.
The hit 1980s horror magazine Fangoria is making a comeback after it was bought by Cinestate from the Brooklyn Company for an undisclosed price.
On Thursday, Cinestate CEO Dallas Sonnier announced that publisher Thomas DeFeo has officially turned over all Fangoria rights to Sonnier and Cinestate in a signed agreement. The deal includes the over 300 issues Fangoria published in the 39 years it was in business starting 1979.
Phil Nobile Jr., from the website birth.death.movies and creator of a feature length documentary on John Carpenter’s “Halloween,” will act as editor-in-chief and creative director.
In an official statement, Nobile said the world needs a Fangoria, a constant presence for decades that disappeared without a warning. “That felt, to us, tragically incorrect,” he said.
For Nobile, the magazine was a “window” into the world of horror for many generations. “It gave us access to filmmakers’ processes and secrets, opened our eyes to movies we might have otherwise missed, and nurtured a wave of talent that’s out there driving the genre today,” he added. “I’m proud and excited to be part of the team that’s bringing this institution back.”
For the magazine’s rebirth, Cinestate plans to release a quarterly issue and expand the brand to movies and podcasts.
Already lined up for a film remake is S. Craig Zahler’s “Dragged Across Concrete,” starring Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn. It will be distributed by Lionsgate. Cinestate is also in the development stage for the re-imagining of orphan story “Hug Chickenpenny: The Panegyric of an Anomalous Child.” An adaptation of the “Puppet Monster” franchise is also in the works.
Fangoria was an iconic magazine in the 1980s and 90s, before blogs and podcasts were invented. The 1980s was the decade of horror, and Fangoria capitalized on the genre by producing movies, comic books, and award shows. The magazine, along with many other, disappeared with the advent of the internet.
The echoes of gunshots had barely fallen silent at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida yesterday when the gun control and NRA crowds had dutifully taken up their entrenched positions for yet another public relations battle in America’s unfolding civil war over firearms.
Even sports reporters chimed in, with Peter King tweeting that those who don’t join his call for more gun control need to, “Get lost. Get off my feed. You are not part of the America we need to strive for.” This is the same Peter King who took aim at “thoughts and prayers” after a different school shooting suggesting Americans don’t have the “guts” to take this problem on. That’s disingenuous and extraordinarily unhelpful right now.
There’s not a person I know on either side of this debate that doesn’t want to do something, anything, right now, to make sure this kind of mass murder doesn’t happen again. Or at least ensure that it starts happening with far less regularity.
The problem isn’t that either faction in this debate lacks guts.
On one side you have activists like King and lawmakers like Elizabeth Warren who have the guts to enact gun confiscation laws tomorrow if they thought they could get away with it. On the other side you have 2nd Amendment defenders like the NRA’s Dana Loesch who has the guts to ensure you will only confiscate her gun if you pry it from her cold, dead hand. The problem is that we have a fundamental disagreement over how to achieve an end that everyone wants.
Though I doubt the efficacy and effectiveness of their ideas, I believe that liberal progressives favor new gun control laws because they think their enactment will result in fewer innocent deaths. I don’t care if my fellow conservatives think I am being naïve or too generous to them. Liberal progressives I know are angry about the mass murders and want them stopped; that is why they do what they do.

Conversely, there exist the concerned voices I am inclined to agree with – those who suggest that more laws to “control” guns will be counterproductive. The lawless, who are intent on committing acts of mass murder, will not be undone or thwarted by a mandatory background check at a gun show, as much as we wish it were the case. They favor eliminating gun free zones and arming responsible citizens as the best way to ensure less dead innocents. Liberals who suggest these conservatives harbor some morbid desire to engender more violence are irresponsible and unreasonable.
So let’s be brutally honest. With such well-entrenched and convicted advocates on either side of this debate, it is unlikely we will see anything accomplished legislatively to truly protect people. And merely recognizing the good intentions of both sides won’t get us anywhere either.
That is why lawmakers must ignore the perpetual gun debate for now and move immediately to enact defensive legislation designed to protect our children in public schools and universities. As a high school teacher, I have a particular interest in the safety and security of school buildings – and this isn’t about gun control or the 2nd Amendment. It’s about common sense.
First, spend tax money to hire and pay more uniformed security personnel at every public school in the state. There are plenty of unemployed veterans and off-duty police officers who would be perfect candidates if the state made a serious investment in this regard.
Second, mandate and fund the training of a handful of willing staff members at every school, giving us access and authority to use deadly force to protect children and young adults in our charge.
Third, mandate and fund the installation of lockdown doors and entrances, limiting access to all school buildings to one main entrance, controlled by surveillance-equipped office personnel.
Do these steps turn our schools into armed forts? I don’t really care. If it means tragedies averted and lives saved, so be it. It’s money well spent while we haggle over safety locks and waiting periods.
When I walk into my local courthouse I am funneled through the one entrance accessible to the public, and immediately see uniformed, armed security present and visible. On any given day, there are plenty of defense-trained personnel walking through those halls. Why? Because we believe our civil servants are worthy of protection from violent threat.
Aren’t our children worthy of the same?

In 2000, Wayne LaPierre told ABC News he believed President Clinton was willing to accept “a certain level of killing to further his political (gun control) agenda.”
Agree or disagree with LaPierre, it’s an indisputable fact that many on the left and right are willing to allow a certain level of killing of Americans because to stop it would impede their political and/or business agenda.
The day after the Super Bowl, the Colts’ Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe, were both run over by a drunken-driving, twice-deported illegal alien.
To say that these are needless deaths is a gross understatement. And whenever there is an epidemic of needless deaths, important people rush to microphones to express their outrage and horror at the situation.
People get upset at preventable deaths. For instance:
• Nancy Pelosi in 2017, said “hundreds of thousands of people would die” if the GOP health bill passed.
• Economist Larry Summers said 10,000 people would die annually from the GOP tax bill.
• Sen. Feinstein warned people would die if the government shut down.
I’m still waiting for the headline: “Widespread tax relief and employee bonuses bring avalanche of death and human misery.”
On the other hand, people actually do die at the hands of some (not all) people in the country illegally. What are the responses of our fearless leaders for the killing of Jackson and Monroe? Here you go:
George W. Bush: No comment on killings of Jackson or Monroe this week. But this elitist patrician who never criticized Obama, criticized his president Thursday on foreign soil. Why? Because Trump wants to stop illegal immigration. Bush said, “Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees.” Exceptionally ignorant statement. My daddy didn’t have a Kennebunkport compound, and I loved digging ditches in college when it was 105 degrees because it was honest labor and money. Oh – and cotton picking has been mechanized since the late 1960s!
Nancy Pelosi: No comment. On Kate Steinle? “We need more gun control, and we shouldn’t let George Bush … errrr … George Trump stop us! Tax bill is Armageddon for illegal, umm, crumbs – that’s what the bonuses are – crumbs. My grandson wishes he was brown like his Guatemalan friend.” She did stand for eight hours speaking not for Americans murdered by illegals, but in support of illegals.
Sens. Dianne Feinstein/Chuck Schumer/Dick Durbin: “We need a clean DACA bill. Because “dreamers” are better than Americans in Every. Possible. Way.”
John McCain: No comment on the deaths but he did introduce a bill to give DACA amnesty. In 2006 he did say, “I’ll build the God-d–ned fence if they want it.” Borders seem to make him angry.
Lindsey Graham: Nothing about the killings this week, but he said, “We’re not going to build a 1,900-mile wall.” He is very passionate about amnesty and strangely passionate about working with Durbin and Schumer.
U.S. Chamber of Commerce: Illegals are cheap labor, often off the books, so we oppose ever solving this problem. Deaths? We’re not a law enforcement agency or EMS. Not our problem.
If pressed, some will make a valiant attempt to explain that the problem is not illegal aliens. An illegal who kills someone while driving drunk is an “alcohol abuse” problem. An illegal who shoots someone is a “gun-control” problem (Pelosi’s real-life response to Steinle’s murder). And, of course, we hear all the time that Americans break the law with more frequency than illegals.
Two fallacies argued that cost American lives:
1) Americans drive drunk, too.
Sorry. The formula is simple: No illegal aliens would mean Jackson and Monroe would still be alive.
“But a drunk American could’ve done the same …”
We will always have to deal with Americans who break the law. But the government’s job is to make sure our citizens don’t have to fear bad actors from other countries on U.S. soil. We fought two world wars to keep bad actors from unlawfully entering (invading) other countries.
Every murder by an illegal alien would not have happened if the federal government did its job.
2) Illegals commit fewer crimes.
False. Why would any thinking person conclude that someone who is here illegally (against the law) would have an amazing reverence for the sanctity of all of our other laws? One example: recent studies have shown in the case of Arizona, illegals commit crimes at double the rate of native-born Americans.
So illegals commit more crimes than citizens (common sense), and an illegal who isn’t here commits no crime.
The left ignores deaths at the hands of illegals because they want new Democratic Party voters. They don’t get upset about the killings; they do get upset if someone brings up the killings.
The right, big business and tech moguls (like Mark Zuckerberg, who has a six-foot wall around his Hawaii vacation home) ignore deaths at the hands of illegal immigrants because they want cheap labor.
So, these groups view the deaths of Americans as a cost of gaining power and doing business, and we are nowhere near a death toll that would alarm them.
But a death toll of one citizen murdered by an illegal per year is one too many. That’s one mother/father/son/daughter gone forever. Those people would not have died if there were no illegals.
Bottom line: Because the immeasurable cost to the families of citizens like Jackson and Monroe, we should never tolerate illegal immigration.
After a half century of teaching eschatological doctrine found in the Bible I was not too surprised to hear of Joy Behar’s recent comments about Vice President Mike Pence.
Years ago I began to tell students of second coming doctrines that at the beginning, those who become militant about their secular world view will begin to accuse Christians of mental disorders. The first people jailed under the coming antichrist, will be held for their own protection as mentally deficit.
Not long after that they will be jailed under mandate of the world’s last dictator. By then, using the pretense of “mentally unstable” will no longer be necessary. Elimination is what scriptures say is next.
Hallowell writes, “Vice President Mike Pence hit back at “The View” one day after host Joy Behar said that it’s essentially “mental illness” to believe that “Jesus talks to you” and co-host Sunny Hostin added that she’s not so sure she wants her “vice president speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.”
He added, “Pence told Axios’ Mike Allen on Wednesday that he heard ABC has a program that compared his faith to mental illness, before accusing the network of allowing a forum that mocks the faith tradition of millions of Americans.”
Mock it does!
For centuries men and women of the Christian faith have claimed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ in which they can by various means hear him speak to them.
Starting with his Word (the bible) and following that, subjective impressions, sometimes it may just be an urging on the heart. But in the end, even if it was an audible voice in the common language of the hearer – who has the right to mock?
Jesus said that the Holy Spirit, which all believers have inside of them, will be reminded by that same Spirit of the words that Jesus has spoken. But he didn’t stop there. In fact, he said clearly that he would reveal future events as well.
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.” (Jn 16: 13)
“Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.” (Php 3: 15)
If only God had access to TV and other media in the ancient days of old – he may have been spared. But alas, it is too late; the enlightened clay must now tell the potter that if he exists, he has been demoted to the level of a non-speaking God.
The “everything from nothing” crowds all of them Darwin’s trusting children; have decided that this one moon shot generation has evolved far enough along to finally dismiss all the God nonsense and raw stupidity about spiritual matters.
The secular commandos of modernity have won the war against superstition and ignorance. The sycophants of modern psychological thought, who are losing control of their gun wielding, porn seeking, gender confused teens; have decided that the children of God are mentally unstable if they claim to hear God speak.
The warm glow initiated by all this enlightenment slams into a sudden freezing blast according to the bible. Because they cannot differentiate between the supernatural and the Divine, they also cannot discern that everything spiritual does not emanate from God. Many supernatural phenomena emanate from the god of this world known as Satan. We feel compelled to tell them that, Satan also speaks to man, and they full well listen to him on a regular basis. He is both a liar and the very father of lies. (2 Corinthians 4:4) (John 8: 44)
How odd does it get? They insist God does not speak to us, but we insist that their god does speak to them, and like us, it is clear that they listen to him. Seriously, does this give us the right to say that they are mentally deranged?
Those chosen to inform the world of today’s trendy and ultimate enlightened declarations have been fated to deliver their news as a band of cackling liberal hens on a day-time TV program that they probably think God should be banned from watching until he learns how to stop lying about speaking to people like Mike Pence.
Darn, why didn’t God come on the scene sooner or at least when we started with radio? Maybe then we could be sure he speaks, and could explain it all on the next showing of something akin to “The View!”
Not every Christian hears God speak audibly, but millions of believers know when God impresses them to do, or not to do, something. Many times it is just a certain level of peace, or the lack of it that is the means of guidance.
Others may have dream, some have visions and yet others may actually hear him speak in an audible manner.
This writer has seen all of the above, and it seems more normal than not, to hear the voice of the one who made man’s mouth.
Sometimes it is very personal like the time God gave me the name of my new employer about one hour before I met him. The details are in the following article.
In the above vision I heard indirectly (by angelic) messenger from God, but also very directly from people across the entire globe – people very much like Joy Behar.
I have lived my life and conducted my ministry on the basis of an adage given to me by my former pastor Dr. Richard Land about 45 years ago, Richard said, “A man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument.” What that means to me is that if someone is saved, or quickened by the telling of my vision I am deeply thankful for the good it has done. If they don’t believe a word I say – I cannot take it to heart and slow the work – there are others in waiting.
Behar may belong to some religion or not, but it is certain that she too will one day hear the voice of the Son of God. It is an immutable promise spoken by the Lord to everyone upon the face of the earth. No one will mock when they hear this voice.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.” (John 5: 25)

“The Real Housewives of New York City” star Luann de Lesseps rejected a plea deal on Wednesday regarding her drunken battery case that happened on Christmas Eve of 2017.
According to People, de Lesseps attended a hearing at the Palm Beach Country Court House in Florida, where she said she wants to continue with her case. The TV personality’s lawyer reportedly waived off a speedy trial and opted to proceed with discovery.
“They said no when the state attorney offered a settlement in her case,” said Mike Edmondson, executive assistant to Dave Aronberg, state attorney for the Fifteen Judicial Circuit of Palm Beach County.
The reality star’s representative, meantime, told People that the case is still ongoing and will resume after 60 days on April 13.
In early January, de Lesseps pleaded not guilty to the charges filed against her after her drunken misconduct at Colony Hotel in Palm Beach on the early morning hours of Dec. 24.
According to a police report, a housekeeping staff was completing a turndown service for a room when a drunk de Lesseps entered with a man, who was later identified as someone he previously dated.
She allegedly refused to accept pleads to step out of the room, urging the staff to call for security, and later, police support. Instead of leaving the room, however, de Lesseps reportedly ran to lock herself in the bathroom.
This resulted to an altercation with one of the officers, whose forehead de Lesseps accidentally hit, while trying to slam the door.
The 52-year-old reality star faces a third-degree felony charge for resisting arrest, first-degree misdemeanor charge for trespassing on an occupied hotel room, and a second-degree misdemeanor charge for disorderly intoxication.
De Lesseps has since apologized via Twitter for the incident, explaining it was her first time in Palm Beach since her wedding with now ex-husband Tom D’Agostino and the trip brought up “buried emotions.”
BIGBANG’s G-Dragon has been confirmed to kick off his mandatory military enlistment later this month, with bandmate Taeyang to follow in just a couple of weeks.
The musician’s agency, YG Entertainment, confirmed on Wednesday that his draft notice has indeed arrived. “The BIGBANG members had always been thinking about enlisting as soon as they receive their draft notices. As such, G-Dragon will be enlisting as an active-duty soldier on February 27,” YG said in an official statement.
The agency added that that there will not be any fanfare prior to his enlistment, which will kick off on a Tuesday. “He plans on quietly enlisting without an official farewell event in order to prevent any chaos from occurring on scene that day. He will diligently carry out his military service,” it added. His specific location of enlistment was not revealed.
G-Dragon and his bandmate Taeyang have expecting their military draft notice to arrive since earlier this month and have been prepared since late last year, when they did their final concert for “The Last Dance Tour,” before they take a long break as each of the members enters the military.
In a teary farewell message to their fans, G-Dragon promised that the group will come back in a better shape after their hiatus. “As spring comes after winter, warm days come. Until then, don’t be sad. We can meet soon,” G-Dragon said in a shaky voice. “We five hope to become your happiness and that is where our power comes from.”
Meantime, Taeyang is set to enlist also as an active soldier starting March 12. The 29-year-old musician, knowing his draft notice could arrive anytime, married his longtime girlfriend Min Hyo Rin in a lavish ceremony earlier this month.
The couple, who started dating after working together on the music video for Taeyang’s single “1AM,” wedded in a private star-studded affair in Gyeonggi Province, just outside Seoul, South Korea.
