Rosamund Pike teases a more human turn for Moraine in Wheel of Time’s second season. A Lego Jurassic Park special is coming to Peacock. Plus, LaKeith Stanfield takes on Nazareth’s other disciples. Spoilers now!
During a recent interview with Empire Magazine, director Francis Lawrence stated The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’ Lucy Gray is the opposite of The Hunger Games’ “asexual” hero, Katniss Everdeen.
Katniss was an introvert and a survivor. She was quite quiet and stoic, you could almost say [she was] asexual. Lucy Gray is the opposite. She wears her sexuality on her sleeve, [and] she really is a performer... She loves crowds. She knows how to play crowds and manipulate people.
Relatedly, a new image shows Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler) being lead to a death match by Coriolanus Snow (Tom Blyth).

In conversation with Den of Geek, Rosamund Pike stated we can expect “a more human Moraine” in the second season of The Wheel of Time “than we’ve seen hitherto.”
Losing the Power, for an Aes Sedai, is akin to losing some essential part of yourself. It’s like entering a deep depression, and we come to know that many women who have been cut off from the Power have killed themselves within a year. Now it says a lot for Moiraine’s resilience that she does not do that and instead she hunkers down.
Prepare to see a more human Moiraine than we’ve seen hitherto. Prepare to see a Moiraine battling against the biggest loss of her life so far, probably since her father, which we also come to understand something of later in the season.
A Jurassic Park LEGO special is now in development at Peacock.
