Question: How exactly did Stan know IT was a female and was expecting?

Chosen answer: On the ground there were opaque eggs with moving objects seen inside, indicating that the spider creature was a female that had laid them.

Answer: It's never specified: somehow Stan just knew, perhaps through a vision or a nightmare.

Answer: It's never specified: somehow Stan simply knew.

Answer: Because when the Losers found It in its side form, only Stan saw its egg sac, writhing with soon-to-be-laid eggs.

Question: This has been submitted before, but the answer is not correct. Richie, Eddie, Beverly, Ben and Bill don't remember anything about each other or the events in Derry. For example Bev's husband reads one of Bill's books and she doesn't recognise the name, and Bill doesn't know who the architect Ben Hanscome is. Why is it that Stan not only recognises Bill's name and remembers him, but also remembers the Turtle? He remembers all of this long before Mike calls.

Chosen answer: The longer they're out of Dairy the less they remember about the specific incidents. That doesn't mean they don't remember any of it, just that their memory is dim and they've forgotten large chunks of it. They still remember parts of it in their dreams too.

Question: Something I've never understood. Why does Stan write IT on the bathroom wall?

Chosen answer: That's his suicide note. His wife doesn't know what happened when they were kids, but he most likely assumed that his friends would hear about his suicide and know that couldn't face "IT" again.

Chosen answer: They don't remember each other throughout their lives, but when Mike calls them they have flashbacks and recall each other. They all remember when they're reminded by Mike.

Question: Why does It leave the picture of Georgie in 1985? The only reason I can think of is to alert the Losers Club, but It doesn't want them to come so that makes no sense.

Chosen answer: It does want the Losers to come to Derry. If you remember, Mik tells that by the site of the Bellwood murder, It painted the words "come home, come home, come home", a clear message to the Losers. In the next part (chapter 10, part 5), they also speak about how It would want them back, to exact revenge on them.
