A Cold Day in Hell's Kitchen - S2-E13

Question: When Frank returns to his home, he has to push through a pile of mail to open the door. He then walks into the kitchen, sits down at the table, and picks up a newspaper that reads "Frank Castle Dead." Where did the fresh paper come from? Obviously Frank didn't leave it, and it must have been put there within the last few days.

Jason Hoffman

Chosen answer: Castle picks up the newspaper from the pile of mail and carries it to the table. There don't seem to be other newspapers in the pile, and there should be more given how long he was away, so perhaps only that issue was put through the mail slot. Karen may have done it, but she seems to still think he was dead at that stage.

Question: Is there any underlying significance to when they show zombie blood gets in Gerry's mouth, but he does not turn into a zombie?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: The significance of showing the blood drop on Gerry's tongue and him spitting it out was to back up the theory that the only way to become a zombie is to be bitten by one. After the blood touched his tongue he ran to the edge of the building and waited 12 seconds (the time it takes to become a zombie) before he stepped off the ledge. If he would have started to change he was going to attempt to jump off the roof before causing harm to his family.

Question: When Slim catches her husband's girlfriend paging him, why does she want to know the woman's name? Why does she think that knowing the name will help the situation?

Chosen answer: She would likely want to know if the other woman was someone she knew.

Question: Who is it that Bruce sees in his dream/vision while waiting for the file to be decrypted? It seems like it might be the Flash, given his time/dimension-travelling powers, but it doesn't look like Ezra Miller and seems to be wearing some sort of armour.

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: It is Flash. He is wearing armour because of whatever has transpired in the future. He often wears an armoured suit in dire circumstances in the comics.

Question: Is this a continuity problem or something I am missing. I was wondering where Lev (the cosmonaut) would sit after leaving the RSS? After reading some questions I know that Lev would use one of the spare spacesuits, but where would he have been sitting during the 12G ride? For the ride home there was a seat for everyone. 3 members of Freedom died and 3 members from Independence survived, meaning there should be no spare seat for Lev.

Chosen answer: Remember that the shuttles weren't built for this mission, they were built to land on Mars. They probably had extra seats because there were going to be many astronauts on that mission.

Greg Dwyer

Question: What was wrong with the store Jimmy told Karen to go into?

Ethan J. Rapmatters

Answer: There are a bunch of tough looking men in it which gave Karen the impression she would probably be killed.

Chosen answer: Nothing. But she knew Jimmy and Henry were on the outs and Henry was unpopular with the bosses due to his involvement in narcotics, so her paranoia meant she panicked when Jimmy sent her down an alleyway.

Question: When Commander Morrow responds to Kirk's protests he says "Jim, the Enterprise is twenty years old. We feel her day's over." In ST: TMP, Decker said "This is an almost totally new Enterprise." If the Enterprise was, for all intents and purposes, totally rebuilt from the original, with more space, better engines, etc., how could it be twenty years old?

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: The Enterprise may have been extensively refurbished, but that does not mean it is entirely new. The ship is still 20 years old. Also, that was Decker's comment, and it may have been an over-exaggeration. Newer ships were being designed and built in the meantime, so even if the Enterprise was still mechanically sound, the technology may have advanced so much that it was not possible or it wasn't economically feasible to continually retrofit older vessels.

Question: How is Blade able to catch his glaive (his bladed throwing-weapon, not his sword) without slicing his own hand and/or fingers in the process? As in this film and its sequels, the blades are still spinning rapidly just before he catches it.

Phaneron Premium member

Chosen answer: While all of the nocturnal vampires in the movies are far stronger and have incredible reflexes compared to humans, Blade is supposed to be an even stronger and faster vampire with special powers (he can travel in daylight, and his reflexes are super-fast even compared to other vampires). In short, Blade is so fast that he can safely snatch a whirling glaive out of the air as easily as catching a slow-pitch softball.

Charles Austin Miller

Question: When Evil is walking down the alley, why did Jerry chase after him? Evil didn't believe in the existence of vampires, so he wouldn't have been a threat to Jerry at all.

Chosen answer: Peter's odd behavior at Jerry's house made Jerry suspicious. When he discovers the shard of the mirror on the ground he finds out why Peter was spooked: Jerry doesn't cast a reflection. Jerry then decided that Charley's friends must be dealt with. In Ed, Jerry sees something which would lead him to believe Ed would make a good servant. Jerry turns Ed into a vampire and sets him against Peter while he himself deals with Charley and Amy.

Question: In the last 9-10 minutes of the sinking a woman is shown in a white dress floating inside the ship. There is a light behind her, and the area appears to be completely submerged in water. Who was this woman and what area of the ship was she in? Also, did her character/this scene have any significance to the story?

cordesn

Chosen answer: The corpse of the woman in a white flowing dress appears to be floating under the great dome (the light behind her) that was above the grand staircase of the first class foyer. This is the same area Rose and Jack meet at the clock after dinner and before the party below decks. It is also the same area where we see the spirits of Jack and Rose meet at the end of the film, near the clock. There's a chance it might be the 1st class lounge. The room where Rose was watching the little girl have tea and her mother talked about the invitations for the wedding. You can see the room once more when the passengers retreat back to it instead of getting into the boats because it was too loud and cold outside. I don't believe we are meant to know, specifically, who the woman was, nor did she seem to have any significance but to create an artistic shot of the calm of death juxtaposed with the panic of those still alive above deck just before the ship splits into two pieces.

Opie's Rival - S3-E10

Question: When Peggy is mad at Andy and storms away she gets into a car with the steering wheel on the right side. I'm just curious as to why?

Chosen answer: From what I see, the steering wheel is on the left hand side. She just happens to get in on the passenger side, to avoid going around the car into the street or the bushes were blocking her way.

Bishop73

Question: What was Jim Craig's horse's name?

Chosen answer: Denny.

Question: Why was it banned in South Africa?

Chosen answer: The film was never banned in South Africa. It was released uncut and was a box office hit.

Question: Scott throws discs which enlarge/shrink whatever they hit, except when he throws them at Darren in Cassie's bedroom. Darren is able to bat them away. One hits an ant, the other the train engine, both of which enlarge. Why didn't Darren enlarge when he touched the discs?

MFWills

Chosen answer: I can assume it was because they didn't attach, just touched.

Show generally

Question: There was supposedly one episode that ended with SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs all laughing in a boat. The laughing then silences, eventually to a stop. Then SpongeBob, Patrick, and Mr. Krabs walk out of the boat, and Squidward eventually walks out too. Which episode is this?

Chosen answer: I believe this is the Season 6 episode "Spongicus".

Question: Nick claims he knows every animal in Zootopia, including Duke Weaselton. How did Nick get to know the weasel and how did he figure that Duke was involved in the crime of turning predators feral?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: Because in fact, Nick knows every animal in Zootopia, including the Duke Weaselton. Judy figured out the Duke was involved because of the robbery he committed earlier and Nick knew where he peddled bootleg movies, which led to him being interrogated at Mr. Big's house. Duke says that he stole and delivered light bulbs for Nighthowlers plant to naughty sheep (sheep that make Nighthowlers plant serum and shoot the serum to predator to make the predator going savage).

Question: I have two questions about Duke Weaselton. 1) Is he the same weasel who was a childhood friend of Gideon Gray's? 2) Despite Judy capturing him early on, how did he get out of prison? If he was released from prison then why?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: 1. No, it's not, that is Travis. The weasel who was a childhood friend of Gideon has brown fur, but when officer Hopps chases the Duke, the Duke's fur colour is brownish orange. 2. The Duke has gone through the period of his prison time, so he did get out - maybe the Zootopia laws are different than ours.

Question: I have two questions in reference to Flynn and Gothel. 1) When Flynn is arrested, he believes Rapunzel has been abducted by the Stabbington Brothers. Later, while he is being taken to the gallows, Flynn sees the Stabbington Brothers in their cell and questions them on how they knew Rapunzel's hair is magic. One of them responds, "It wasn't us. It was the old lady," referring to Gothel. Seeing how he rides Maximus to the tower where Gothel hides Rapunzel after escaping, how did Flynn figure Rapunzel would be there without getting no information to confirm? 2) When Gothel stabs Flynn, why does she tell Rapunzel she's to blame for Flynn's impending death?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: 1) Flynn knows the tower is where Rapunzel and her "mother" live, going back there is the only logical place to search for Rapunzel. 2) She meant it was her fault for leaving the tower and dragging Flynn into the situation, which led him to his fate.

Question: Why did Pain and Panic run and leave baby Hercules on the ground when they hear Alceme and Amphitrion instead of grabbing the baby and running?

Chosen answer: When the couple turns the corner, startling Pain and Panic, they proceed to...well...panic. Pain and Panic didn't want to be found out. And while carrying a baby, they couldn't hide as quickly or as nimbly. It was an impulsive act which they might not have committed if they had time to think it out rationally. Besides, had they not panicked and run, baby Hercules would have ended up in the hands of Hades and the movie would have been over before it began.

Michael Albert

Question: At the end of the movie Amelia and Larry are saying their goodbyes - Larry tries to bring up what will happen to Amelia at sunrise, and Amelia says that she knows what will become of her. Is it implied that Amelia will not make it back to the Smithsonian before sunrise and turn to dust, or is it implied that she will make it back, but will not be able to come to life at night due to not having the tablet near her?

Jaredsmith09

Chosen answer: Amelia has no idea about the turning to dust at sunset consequence, but what she does know is she will disappear and not be found, as what happened to the real Amelia Earhart.
