Question: In the book, Snape and Lupin look at the Marauder's Map to see that Ron, Peter, Hermione, Harry and Sirius are all in the Shrieking Shack. How come Snape and Lupin didn't notice the second/future Harry and Hermione when they were near the whomping willow on the map?

New today Answer: They didn't notice the second ones because they weren't close enough to the tree when they were focused on that part of the map. There are hundreds of dots moving around the castle and it is possible they were just missed.

New this week Question: The lone woman on the bridge. What was she saying?

Show generally

New this week Question: I've been re-watching this show, and have noticed this in nearly every episode. In scenes inside GD, there's always one person, a background extra, who seems to have clear plastic wrap over their clothes. Do you know what that is all about?

New this week Question: When Glenn Close (Bennett) tears up the signed papers at the end, I wondered is she legally allowed to do that?

New this week Question: What was that thing with the big eye Rango and his posse were walking by?

New this week Question: Why didn't Roadkill the armadillo die by getting run over, and how did he put himself back together?

New this week Question: How did Megumi die? Did the 2 coworkers kill her or did she kill herself because of what they did to her?

New this week Question: When the couple go to the guy to help get rid of the ghost, he touches the picture and sees images. He then tosses the picture at them while yelling in Japanese and causing the couple to flee. What is the translation of what he was saying? Joshua Jackson tells his wife what the guy "said" but to me it looked like he was lying.

New this week Question: Why would the loco derail if the siding switch was set to the siding where the freight train went?

Question: Baron Wolfgang von Strucker stated in the after credits scene, "Sooner or later, they will meet the twins." Who exactly is "they"?

New this week Answer: By "they" he means "Captain America and his colorful friends", in other words the Avengers.

The One With Joey's New Girlfriend - S4-E5

Question: Does anyone know what the song is at the end of the episode The One With Joey's New Girlfriend? It plays for about five seconds when Chandler asks if he can sleep on Monica's couch.

New this week Answer: It isn't a song in its own right. It's incidental music. It sounds like a variation in the style of "I'll Be There For You."

Michael Albert

Question: This actually refers to the whole arc of Harry Osborn's role: Why did the film-makers want him to become a villain? I know they needed one for the third movie, but why make it one of Peter's closest friends? Was it an illustration of how big a difference, for good or bad, a single misinterpretation can make? A lesson in knowing how to look at a situation from someone else's perspective as well as your own? Or, was it just a really tragic way of showing that not all of Spider-Man's foes are going to be people he feels no regret over beating the pants off?

New this week Answer: Well the major reason is because it happened in the comics. Harry took the Goblin formula and became as crazy as his father. Here Harry is less a villain and just confused. He believes Spider-Man killed his father and wanted revenge.

MasterOfAll

Question: Why did Elliot let all the frogs out? And why was he asking one if it could talk? I realise he was drunk (or ET was), but this doesn't explain such behaviour.

New this week Answer: Elliot, through a psychic connection to ET, is experiencing the effects of the beer that ET is drinking. It has impaired Elliott's judgment and unleashes his inhibitions. He frees the frogs because he doesn't want them to be killed and dissected in class. Talking to one is just a side-effect of being intoxicated and he may be identifying it as a sentient being like E.T.

Question: Has JK Rowling said what happened to James Potter's parents and Lily's? They were only 21 when Voldemort killed them, and most people of that age still have living parents.

New this week Answer: James had older parents who died of some type of wizarding ailment. It's suspected to be Dragon Pox as that can be fatal to elderly wizards. All that is known of Lily's parents is they died of a normal muggle death. As to what "normal" means though and the age of her parents, that has never been said.

New this week Question: Near the end of the credits they list a URL for some related food or charity or something for more information. Does anyone recall what it was?

New this week Question: What is the Big Band song playing as the taxi drives over the bridge?

Question: If King Triton is the king of the sea, wouldn't he knew where Morgana was hiding? Do the humans know that Ariel and Melody are mermaids then if they do, do you think that those snotty kids would had told Melody?

New this week Answer: King of the Sea does not mean psychic powers that allow him to be able to snuff out everyone's location. Only power he has is through the trident, which obviously cannot pinpoint location as he couldn't find Ariel when she was missing. It's likely the humans have no idea of the family's mermaid history, because yes, the snotty kids probably would have greatly teased Melody for it.

New this week Question: 2 questions, 1. When Nathanial (the second Vampire to die) is face to face with Raze, as Raze begins the transformation, Nathanial just stands there hissing, does he know he has no chance whilst unarmed and just tries to look as intimidating as possible, if so why did he pursue Raze to begin with, no point in suicide just to hiss at him a few times, 2. Soren and Raze have a rather obvious dislike for each other, in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, we see Lucian being whipped by a Vampire, is this meant to be Soren? Because in the first film Soren has whips, I can't remember but I'm certain the Vampire that was torturing Lucian dies when Lucian breaks out, if so, why do Soren and Raze have a rivalry (besides the obvious war between Lycans and Vampires) and why, in this film, does Soren have whips?

Question: Why exactly did the Viceroy of the Trade Federation want to kill Padme in the first place?

New this week Answer: He didn't want her killed. He wanted her captured because she was the only one who could sign a treaty to legalize their blockade.

Question: When did Zola experiment on Barnes? Didn't Zola get captured by Captain Rogers on the same train as Barnes fell out of? I know he experimented on him before because he survived the fall. But in a short flashback, Zola is standing next to Barnes while he has his metal arm.

New this week Answer: Hydra was working with SHIELD since the 1940s. After he was taken into custody, Hydra would have eventually taken in Zola, where he experimented on Bucky, giving him the metal arm.
