Pause at 2 minutes, 51 seconds. Leela is wearing a diamond ring on her left hand.
Looks like the speculation of many here, including myself, is true.
At some point this half-season Fry will take the knee and propose to Leela.

Yep defiantly proposing.  But how to unkill Fry I don't know.  Maybe more stem cells.  Gruesome death by futurama standards though.  And I love the fact they are doing a "the thing" parody.  big grin

Agreed. Unfortunately I have the feel that some sort of trickery on Fry will be used, and maybe it wasn't just Zapp, maybe Yancy proposed. Dun dun dun!

No but I am genuinely happy with that ring. I think they're probably doing that to screw with us, and especially in the preview, but for the time being I am quite happy.

Well, judging by Fry's outfit in that scene from the clip reel, some kind of L/F date was planned. So I'm almost sure that it's Fry who proposed to Leela earlier smile.

There's got to be a heck of a lot more to this scene than we've been given in the preview.

For one, Leela does not look horrified or heartbroken, while (presumably) watching Fry fall to his death. She looks a bit angry. As to why, I have no idea.

Plus, after getting soaked in whatever that dark red substance is (Blood? Paint? Spaghetti sauce?), she looks back up. If that was Fry's remains she's splattered with, I highly doubt she'd do anything other than fall to the ground weeping. I mean, remember The Sting?

I had a feeling if I came to the shipper thread, the wild proposal theories would be running rampant. And I was right. I didn't notice the ring. I have an internal squee building up but I really don't want to ruin anything for myself.

I don't think Leela being soaked in the blood of her boyfriend would be that unsettling. After all, we witnessed chunks of Kif's flesh splatter across the room before being put in a delicious sandwich and eaten by Zapp.

Yep.
This one really looks like a scene that -when seen out of context- will give the completely wrong impression of events. Of course, it will probably have been chosen for just that reason:

a) The substance may not be blood, but rather some dark fluid. With Fry's fall for some reason being embarassing, getting him dirty...but hurting nothing more than his pride.
b) Leela's anger might have been directed at Fry being late, and expecting him to arrive. She did not expect him to fall from the sky. So, the "my boyfriend is being late again" angry face is still on. To be changed to horror and shock, as soon as she understands the surprising/shocking situation.
c) We just see a quick shadow rushing past Leela. We do not even know wether that shadow is Fry (it is highly probable. Yet -as stated before- trailers often toy with "not everything is as it seems to be" scenes.)
d) I am thinking of the "10 seconds back in time button". Maybe that scene is some random shenanigan, using Fry's death as a more throwaway joke. E.g. the button owners come to the realisation that they may not use that thing all the time to undo small mistakes. Followed by a montage featuring mishaps, that just HAVE to be fixed.
When Leela finally thinks they managed to achieve a "non use" status, Fry falls to his death, leading to another "Oh great, we need to use that thing again" facial expression.
Etc..etc...etc..
To cut a long story short: Many explanations possible for that one....

Well, we don't even know from what exactly episode that scene from... It could be 7ACV17 ("Fry and Leela's Big Fling") or 7ACV26 ("Meanwhile"). If the proposal takes place in 7ACV17 and stays until/culminates in 7ACV26, then it's more interesting for me.

In fact the idea of Zapp and Leela getting together was voiced in TBWABB commentary. Having Amy to sleep with Zapp and thus creating a "triangle" was a way to "complicate their love lifes".

I remember in an interview with Maurice LaMarche he said in 7B's finale he plays a miserable jewellery store owner or something like that, more hints. wink

Found the interview!

Quote
AX: Can you tease about the season finale airing next summer?
 
LAMARCHE: In our season finale, which will air next year, I play a washed up superhero who runs a jewelry store. His name is Ultra Guy. Other than that, I donít know what quite happens. Iím saving it for myself. Iím going to watch that episode [when it airs], and by then Iíll know the fate of the show. If it is the last episode [of the series], Iíll know theyíve done a great job of wrapping it up.

So . . . I was rewatching Beast with a Billion Backs tonight, and from a shipper perspective, it's pretty interesting. I don't think Fry was in love with Colleen - she seems like a classic rebound relationship to me. Reading between the lines though, the whole thing actually seems to reinforce his hopeless devotion to Leela.

First let's look at Colleen. She's supposed to be his attempt to move away from Leela, to someone more attainable, but she's actually a bit of a regression for Fry. It's like he's trying to go back in time to the kinds of girls he dated before he came to the future. Colleen sounds kinda Irish, and I always get the feeling there's some Irish in Fry (maybe it's Luck of the Fryrish, maybe it's the red hair . . ) Anyway, the way she takes him for granted and openly cheats also reminds me of his last serious girlfriend, Michelle. Regression.

The fact that he even considers the open relationship (when he obviously hates the idea) shows you how desperately lonely he is at this point.

Then there's the sad scenes after he breaks if off with her. Fry isn't seeing stuff which reminds him of Colleen here - he's seeing happy couples in general. (Some other interesting things ; the two characters who stop fighting and start kissing in Fry's video game are purple and orange. The therapist who's attention he can't get is also wearing purple, and making out with Chaz, the mayor's aide Leela dated - which pretty neatly reflects the way he can't get Leela's help with his relationship problems either.)

And then there's Yivo. I don't think Fry really loved Yivo either (the first reason he gives for loving it is "It loves me" and later on he compares his feelings to a schoolgirl crush), but even Yivo resembles Leela! It's not just that it's purple and it's got one eye. He travels to a new world, and the first thing he sees an apparently terrifying monster, who actually helps him feel less alone. Sound familiar?

While I realize that none of those allusions weren't really intended by the writers it does make me feel better about the film as a whole.  That being said leelas comment to fry before he takes his dysphoric leave kinda bothers me.

I think Leela's actually really annoyed at him this whole film. She has kinda earned it, but I think it's still a shock for her that Fry isn't as fixated on her as usual. Having her world turned upside down by the whole Lars thing, she's probably craving stability - so Fry acting out of the ordinary is unwelcome. She's trying to act accepting and disinterested about his relationship with Colleen, but she's clearly not as cool with it as she pretends, because every time he seriously asks her for advice, she brushes him off. She plays happy with everyone else, but when it's just the two of them and he needs her help (as a friend) she shuts down. She just does NOT want to talk about it. Then she basically tells him she wants him to go away. My guess? He confuses her and she doesn't like it.

Something else just hit me - Leela's whole theme in BWABB is isolation. She's always on her own, or she feels that way. She's alone at Amy's wedding. She's the only one who manages not to "love the tentacle". She's the only one who doesn't want to go live with Yivo. Fry's main theme is loneliness - he does unthinkable things for Yivo and Colleen, because they return his love, or he wants to believe they do. Loneliness and isolation, aren't new themes for either of them, but they're both pretty overwhelmed here, and end up questioning their core beliefs. They're not communicating with each other here, and as a result, they essentially lose themselves.

The whole loneliness / isolation thing is also a major foundation for the ship. ("I'm lonely and you're lonely, but together, we're lonely together.") Here they're lonely apart, and for Fry, anyway, it's unbearable. Tough breaks.

(I also found a funny little deleted scene on the dvd. Fry's upset and says he's done looking for love, and Amy tells him not to give up, suggesting he date some girl in her fitness class who's "plump but knows loads of riddles". Fry says he doesn't want to and leaves the room, but Leela immediately shoots down Amy's idea, AND calls the other girl "immense", and Amy nuts for suggesting it. Not only does this not gel at all with what she told Amy earlier - that love can find you when you least expect it and you shouldn't give up - but it's pretty bitchy. Jealous, much? wink )
