Welcome back to your now twice-weekly Pop Culture Fix!
+ Kate McKinnon and Elizabeth Warren danced it out on SNL this weekend because we love to celebrate a woman when her ambition isn’t poised to make her even more powerful!

Here’s Warren’s skit:
+ HBO is adapting potentially the most beloved gay video game of all time (or, well, video game with a gay storyline), The Last of Us, with the game developers and and the writer/producer of Chernobyl. They promise they’re going to keep Ellie’s lesbianism in tact, which is good, because I think there’d be a riot outside HBO if they did not.
You have my word.

+ Power is spinning off again, this time with Power Book III: Raising Kanan, and it will include LaVerne “Jukebox” Thomas — who clocked in at #83 on our Top 100 Queer and Trans Women of Color Television Characters in TV History — to be played by Tony Award nominee Haley Kilgore.
+ Katrina Law chatted with TVLine about Nyssa showing up on the Arrow series finale, Sara being Nyssa’s beloved and soulmate, and how she wants to drop by on Legends of Tomorrow and “mess with Ava a little bit.”
+ Netflix Canada agrees with us and you that this is the one Glee thing that’s still worth talking about!
