It’s starting to become very clear why Jonathan Majors’ management and PR team quit. Despite claims by his attorney that the domestic violence charges would be “dropped imminently,” the exact opposite seems to be happening. According to a new report, multiple women have come forward with allegations of abuse and are cooperating with the Manhattan DA’s office. There’s also this little tidbit: “Disney has the added wrinkle in that the alleged victim in the Manhattan incident also worked on this year’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, a film in which Majors was third-billed as Kang the Conqueror.” That’s the smell of toast, folks.

While watching Alfred Molina’s expressive eyebrows in Three Pines, esme realized she had been reading Louise Penny’s Inspector Gamache series out of order and needed to go back to the start. “This book addressed themes that recur in subsequent books: how the past, and our failures to wrangle it…influences our present; the search for belonging; and the power of light to banish darkness.” Have you read Penny’s series, or watched the TV show?
