Question: When Hermione says "you go I'll stay" why was she looking sad?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: She wasn't sad. They'd all just been through a rather harrowing and scary experience inside the Shrieking Shack, and she has been emotionally affected by it all. She's also worried about Ron, whose leg was injured.

Question: Why did Hermione keep telling Harry to go when they were out of the shrieking shack? And where did they want him to go?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Hermione was telling Harry to go over to Sirius, who had gone a little further ahead. Harry was torn between tending to Ron, who'd injured his leg, and wanting to talk to Sirius. Hermione thought it more important for Harry and Sirius to talk while she stayed with Ron. Harry had only found out moments before that Sirius was not responsible for murdering his parents, and he had much to discuss with his godfather.

Question: Instead of trying to murder them, why didn't the Lizzies simply contact the Riffs and tell them they had 3 of the warriors and to come get them? They had plenty of time.

Gavin Jackson

Answer: The Riffs had put out a hit on the Warriors via the radio DJ, meaning that it didn't matter if the Warriors were taken alive or not; the Lizzies probably figured it would be easier simply to kill the Warriors and collect the reward.

The One Where Eddie Moves In - S2-E17

Question: What is the song and/or episode of "Baywatch" playing when Joey and Chandler share their famous moment over the phone in this episode?

Answer: Eric Carmen - All by Myself.

Question: At the climax of the movie when Malcolm talks to his wife while she was sleeping, a ring from her has fallen down to the floor, what does it mean? Is his wife married to another man?

Answer: It's his own wedding ring. He recognizes it and sees she is still wearing hers and he isn't wearing his own, so at that point he realises he is dead.

lionhead

Answer: The ring was Malcolm's - she kept it after he died. When it falls Malcolm realises that he hasn't been wearing it even though he sees it on his hand.

Question: Was there ever a real Heather Jasper Howe?

Austin Pearce

Answer: Yes! There was a real Heather Jasper Howe! Like the fake Heather Jasper Howe's True Identity is Jonathan Jacobo! He was arrested with Ned.

Answer: Yes.

Question: Had John Doe not been killed by Mills, what charges would he be facing exactly?

EK8829

Answer: At the very least, six counts of first degree/premeditated murder (the five sin victims, plus Tracy); six counts of assault and battery; three counts of home invasion; and two counts of kidnapping (Gluttony and Sloth). His lawyer says that he planned to plead insanity, but this could not realistically have been defended, at the very least because (as Somerset points out) his threat to do so would be admissible evidence.

Doomworld - S2-E16

Question: When Mayor Damien Darhk puts up the mask in his collections, who do the other masks individually belong to? I recognize Flash and maybe Diggle and Green Arrow.

Bishop73

Answer: Black Canary, Spartan, Wild Dog, and Ragman.

Question: Why doesn't the teacher at Jake's school punish the bully for teasing Jake?

Answer: All the bully really did was take the book out of Jake's hand and Jake violently assaulted him in retaliation. Jake's action was much worse. Also, we are never actually shown what punishment the bully received, he very well could have been punished in some way that was never mentioned.

Question: I've only seen a few episodes so some info would be helpful. After running very fast and for a long period of time, why does the Flash suddenly become very weak?

Answer: The Flash burns energy the same way a normal human does, just at an extremely high tolerance. His metabolism is incredibly high and he must constantly eat to maintain his energy levels. If he runs at high speed for a long period of time he will burn his stored energy and become very weak.

Question: How come Charles called Logan a disappointment?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Even with Charles' help, Logan was never able to completely put his violent past behind him and integrate into society at large. Xavier always taught his students to view mutant powers as a gift. Logan always viewed his powers as a curse.

Question: How did getting shot knock Jason unconscious? Second, how did getting shot cause him to lose his memory?

Answer: Any significant shock could cause a person to lose consciousness. The amnesia was probably a combination of the shock of being shot, half-drowning, and the fact that Conklin had the Treadstone agents "wound so tight, one of them was bound to snap."

Question: Rogue asked if Logan promised to take care of her if she came back to the institute, so why was she still on the train since he said he promised?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: The train had just started moving, so perhaps they just decided to wait for the first scheduled stop to get off.

Question: Joy doesn't let Sadness use the console, so why doesn't she mind when Fear, Anger, or Disgust do the same?

Answer: Joy is very controlling of everyone when it comes to using the console. We only see Fear, Anger, and Disgust use it briefly, even when Joy is gone.

Question: What kind of chocolate was it that Hogarth poured on Mansley's ice cream?

Answer: It was a laxative to make him go to the bathroom.

Question: In the Neski file sale at the beginning there is a seller and a CIA buyer that Kiril kills. How did the seller get the files? And also Landy mentions that 2 of her agents were killed in the sale, but I thought only one was a CIA agent and the other the seller?

Answer: Landy says she lost "two people" in Berlin. She is referring to the seller as one of them (as a potentially valuable asset), in addition to the CIA officer. It's not specified how the seller obtained the files, although Landy refers to him as "a thief, a mole."

Question: Why does Bourne check into the hotel and leave his passport when that would only attract the police, and all he wanted to do was check out room 645?

Answer: Bourne was a bit disoriented and distracted from the flashbacks, so he may not have been thinking as as usual. When he entered the lobby, the clerk immediately asked if he needed help, so he probably figured checking in was the least suspicious way to get to the room. He also didn't pick up any recognition or suspicion from the staff, as the police notice didn't arrive until after he had gone upstairs.

Question: How did Trigger accidentally fire his crossbow simply by patting it?

Answer: It's called a hair trigger, when a weapon of any kind can go off with the wrong kind of knock, very sensitive to touch.

Answer: There are two possibilities. Roman crossbows from medieval times, used throughout Europe, used a rolling nut trigger system. This is different than a modern day crossbow with a pistol trigger. The trigger, which looks like a lever, sits in a notch on the nut. Through use, this notch could have been worn down so that the crossbow misfired when he hit it on the side; because the nut was allowed to spin, releasing the bowstring. The other possibility is when he hits the side of the crossbow, it almost looks like the trigger hits his belly, and since there's no trigger guard, it fires.

Question: In the Rogue Cut, how come Rogue wakes up after Bobby touches her, as he doesn't have healing powers?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: He wasn't healing her, his was letting her soak up his life force, as she was obviously drained of being in status. She was getting a jump start.
