New this month Question: Why didn't the aunts just tell Miguel that Ernesto De La Cruz wasn't his grandfather when Miguel was rambling about it when he entered the Land of the Dead?

New this month Answer: The aunts may not actually know. Because his ancestor hated him so much, she may have talked about him very little in both the real world and the afterlife.

Question: When you look at Abuelita's ofrenda, the bottom row has more pictures of family members. Where were they during Día de Los Muertos? They couldn't have gone to the true afterlife since they were on the ofrenda right?

Answer: These other ancestors may only be faces on the family's altar. Their photographs may still be put up, but if there are no anecdotes to remember them by, their names and faces may not be strong enough to count as being remembered.

Question: When Miguel first meets Hector, Hector claims he used to work with Ernesto, who Miguel initially thought was his great-great grandfather. When Hector confronts Ernesto after Miguel first meets him, Hector reveals how Ernesto murdered him with poisoned wine. Why doesn't Hector tell Miguel that earlier when they first meet?

Johman

Answer: Because Hector didn't realise he had been poisoned until The scene where they meet. It is only after he sees the scene from Ernesto's movie that he puts it together.

Question: After Chicharrón is forgotten and disappears, where does he go?

Answer: No one really knows, perhaps the 'true' afterlife, though that is entirely speculation.

Question: What happened to Ernesto after he was crushed by the bell in the Land of the Dead?

Answer: I believe he died the final death because his skeleton body was presumably crushed. Hope this helps.

Also, a sign with "Forget" has been put on Ernesto's tomb in the living world, which would speed his demise if no-one remembered him.
