Question: Why does Leo have powers in this episode that we never see him use again? Levitating for example, reheating a cup of coffee. The refilling the water could be explained by his normal white-lighter powers. I think it's probably because the writers changed their minds about what exactly would constitute white-lighter powers. However how is this explained, in canon? Leo as far as I remember doesn't levitate again, neither does Paige or Chris. It isn't as far as I remember established as a white-lighter power.
Question: The book explains Meredith changed Tom's specifications on the production line to try and impress CEO Ed Nichols by cutting costs. But why did she choose to do it on Tom's responsibility in the first place? Why not just change someone else's specifications? Did she despise Tom in some way or did she choose to change Tom's specifications because she knew she was incompetent, and thus chose him to blame in case she messed up?
Question: After Jack's meeting with Beckett on board the Endeavour, they have a deal where Jack has to lead Beckett to the Pirates. Then why does Jack fire a canon on the main mast, making them incapable of pursuit? Later, however, he lets Will escape the brig, gives him the compass and lets him go to Beckett. The two actions seem inconsistent.uk_07
Question: Near the beginning of this episode, there is a heating repairman. He asks "Does anyone want to hear the story of the love I once had and lost?" or something like that. Is this character supposed to be the professor from Marge's flashback? He is also seen later on sitting with the kids and listening to Marge's narration, but then he just disappears from the story with no explanation. The purpose of introducing and then abandoning this character is lost on me.
Question: I have never understood why Luke and Leia needed to be hidden with two different families. As a princess, Leia is actually in the public eye. It would have been much safer to let Owen and Beru raise her along with Luke. Why keep them apart?
Question: At his birthday party, Monk realises that Pressman is the murderer and when he looks at his ice cubes, he sees that they are square while everybody else's is round. He then realises that the poison was in the ice cubes and now his ice cubes were filled with poison. Why would Pressman try to kill Monk? He never did anything that gave Pressman the indication that he was on to him. All Monk did was want his self-cleaning vacuum fixed.
