One example of foreshadowing in the novel is in chapter 4 when Nick is introduced to Mr. Wolfsheim, a gambler who is friends with Gatsby and who, according to Gatsby, “fixed the world’s series back in 1919”. This suggests that Gatsby got his wealth through illegal actions, which we learn to be true later in the book. 2. There is another example of foreshadowing in chapter 7 which foreshadows Gatsby’s death. “Gatsby stood in the centre of the crimson carpet and gazed around with fascinated eyes.” A crimson carpet could be associated with blood or death, and with Gatsby in the center of it, this can be connected to foreshadowing his death.

Throughout the viewing of the film, Ignatius aggravates his fellow movie-goers by screaming phrases such as “This is going to be worse than I thought” and “Just look at those smiling morons!

Ignatius also shows how he can be incredibly selfish by his absolute hatred of his mother’s relationships with Santa Battaglia, Officer Mancuso, and Claude Robichaux.

Y’know, I think these kids spend far too much time hanging around with an old lady. You’d think their parents would think the same when they were invited for a sleepover at a haunted house. This show tries to explain the unbelievable (ghosts) with the unbelievable (aliens) yet again, which confuses me. Not a fan of the recurring Professor Rivers, with her naive personality and name too similar to Dr Song. Cool to see Donald Sumpter now he’s appeared as Rassilon in Hell Bent, and also twice in the classic show.
