Question: When Logan returns to the mansion, how come Rogue got so excited? she couldn't have known it was him, and also, did she not think that it might upset Bobby that she was really excited to see another man?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She has a bit of a crush on Logan, and when she heard the motorcycle (which Logan had "borrowed") she assumed it was him. She's a teenager, so she probably wasn't thinking about Bobby's feelings.

Question: Darth Vader hears from Palpatine that he killed his wife. How would Palpatine know? He didn't arrive on Mustafar until after Obi-wan left and took Padme to the medical facility. Also, if Palpatine found out how Padme died, how does he not know (yet) about Luke and Leia? She died after giving birth to them.

Chosen answer: You're missing the point: Palpatine lied. He knew Vader would be more pliable if he believed he'd caused her death.

Question: Got a few questions. First Question. When the emperor is killed in ROTJ, doesn't that mark the end of the Galactic Empire? If so, wouldn't the establishment of the New Republic mean that The First Order is at this point just an extremist group trying to throw a coup? Second Question: Whether or not the first question is a yes or a no, wouldn't the New Republic have knowledge of Starkiller Base being constructed? Third Question: Is there any influence as to why Kylo Ren basically gets temper tantrums? An example being when Rey escaped or when he found out the droid escaped Jakku Last Question: Kylo Ren stopped a strong laser bolt and has to ability to freeze people. How was he so easily beaten by Rey with no jedi training?

Chosen answer: Yes to the first. Not necessarily to the second, as they undoubtedly worked very hard to keep it secret. For the third question, the dark side of the force feeds on and enhances anger, rage, hatred. Ren is full of these emotions. As for the last question, remember that Ren took a shot to the guts from Chewbacca's bowcaster, a weapon that blows everyone it hits back several meters, killing them instantly. Ren took a knee for a moment then got right back up. He is using the bulk of his concentration on using his Force powers to survive and heal that wound and manage the pain. That's why he keeps beating his abdomen with his fist during his fight with Rey. Rey is also abnormally strong with the Force. These two factors combined to make their first fight evenly matched.

Question: Why is everyone cheering when Palpatine reorganizes the Republic to an empire? You'd think they'd be doing the opposite like Padme and Organa.

Chosen answer: Because they believe the Empire will be stronger and safer. They're making the historically dangerous choice of security over freedom.

Question: As someone else pointed out, Obi-wan states that Anakin wanted Luke to have his lightsaber when Luke was old enough. But Anakin violated the Jedi Order's rules by marrying and having children, so he (before he became Darth Vader) couldn't have expected Luke to join the Order himself someday and become a Jedi. Surely the Council would not have accepted Luke?

Chosen answer: The Jedi are discouraged from marrying and having relationships, but not from procreating. Based on council's views, Luke would actually be an ideal Jedi subject; He comes from a lineage strong in the force, but has no ties to his parents.

Question: What is the deal with everyone saying "beep beep" to Ritchie every time he tells a joke?

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: It's their way of telling Richie to be quiet. To get him to stop talking.

Answer: In the book it is explained that they are telling Richie to shut up.

Question: Why were the names of Paul Vario and Jimmy Burke changed for the movie to Paul Cicero and Jimmy Conway when no other names were changed? It's not as if someone's identity was being protected. I never understood that.

Chosen answer: Not sure why they changed Paul's, but Jimmy's was changed to Conway because his sister refused to allow it, Conway being his mother's maiden name.

New this month Answer: Tommy's name was changed as well. In the movie it is Tommy DeVito, in real life it was Tommy DeSimone.

Question: When Tarzan and Jane first meet and they're sitting on a tree branch looking at each other - it looks like Jane's feet are going in the wrong direction (anatomically impossible direction). Did anyone notice this?

Chosen answer: Her feet are oriented correctly the entire time.

Show generally

Question: The Impulse engine on the back of the Dorsal section is lit during orbits, which is normal. However, should that engine not be lit, like the ones on the back of the saucer, when it is in Warp?

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: There's no reason for the impulse engines to be active when the ship is at warp speed. Within the show, warp is an entirely different method of propulsion (i.e. Warping space around the ship) and doesn't require thrust, which is what the impulse engines provide.

Persona - S10-E8

Question: While gathering evidence against Brent, it's discovered that Linnie was really Caroline Cresswell and that she killed her first husband in self-defense. Since she started using an alias after she escaped, would her marriage to her second husband Jonah be legal?

Chosen answer: The marriage would be deemed fraudulent, since she did not use her real name.

Big Scare in the Big Easy - S1-E4

Question: When the gunk gets on Daphne's shoe, why was she so upset? Why not just clean the gunk off? Or get one of the other shoes out of her backpack (which she had with her)?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Women love shoes, which are often expensive, and they can get upset if something ruins them.

Question: Why was Carter deliberately causing enough commotion to drive the other tenants out?

Chosen answer: If there are no other tenants, it means a loss of income for the owners. Carter, meanwhile was destroying the other apartment, making it useless to rent out. Patty and Drake need the income from both apartments that they are renting out in order to pay the monthly mortgage on their Victorian house.

Question: Henry gets shot and when he time travels, he dies in Clare's arms. Years later, Henry appears to both Clare and Alba. So is he still time traveling or is he really dead?

Chosen answer: He's really dead. But while he was alive, he time-traveled far into the future and saw Clare and Alba. His "individual timeline" is scattered, out of chronological order, all over the "real timeline, " so he can appear in the "future" as a younger (or, in this case, living) person.

Question: When Bob is looking at a video, he stops at a figure of a woman. He then uses a switch and watches as the woman in the video turns into another woman. Why does he keep going back and forth between the two women?

Chosen answer: It's only one woman in reality. He had sex with a woman named Connie, but woke up next to her later and thought it was his friend Donna. The video showing it as two women is Bob losing his grip on reality due to his addiction to Substance D.

Question: During the Boggart scene when the boggart Snape transforms into a big spider if you look closely he goes from a witch, bat, mummy, lime lizard, small bug and then to the spider - why?

Cloude2 Premium member

Chosen answer: Ron fears all of those things. It took the boggart a moment to decide what Ron feared the most.

Question: Shouldn't Bruce be as insane as Falcone? Unless the dosages delivered to Batman and Falcone, respectively, were different. Also, why didn't Rachel yell and scream and go crazy like Falcone did when he was hit?

Chosen answer: Bruce is just as infected as Falcone, however he is rescued by Alfred shortly after he is poisoned and given an antidote by Lucius shortly after that. He is then bedridden for many hours. If he had not been saved as quickly as he was, he no doubt would have been a blubbering mass just like Falcone. The reason Rachel and even Bruce don't react the same as Falcone the moment they are poisoned comes down to how each individual person reacts to fear: Bruce tries to fight, Rachel faints, Falcone screams in horror.

BaconIsMyBFF

Question: During B-Rabbits' rap battle with Papa Doc, why did the DJ make a motion for them to stop playing the music?

Chosen answer: Because Rabbit had gone over his allotted time.

Question: Why did Werner wait for 35 years to tell Julius that he had a twin brother?

Chosen answer: Vincent was a point of shame and regret. Nobody involved wanted Julius to know Vincent even existed.

Jason Hoffman

Question: How could Mary-Ann not know she was giving birth to Vincent shortly after Julius was born? Wouldn't she have felt another intense pain to indicate she was going into labor a second time? Plus, how would they be able to keep the birth of Vincent a secret from her in the first place?

Chosen answer: She could have been unconscious by that point.
