Question: If Quinn and Robin had no idea what island they crash landed on AND the plane's navigation system and radio had been knocked out by the lightning, how were they able to navigate straight back to Makatea once they retrofitted the plane and eluded the pirates?

Chosen answer: Once they were in the air, Quinn would be able to navigate by sight. He was an experienced pilot and and was familiar with the territory and the different islands' configurations. He would also be looking for ship traffic, and he had a general idea which of several islands they were on. Once in the air, he would easily know which direction he was heading based on the position of the sun.

Question: What happened to Satine after she passed away? Did they bury her somewhere near the Moulin Rouge or leave her abandoned there?

Chosen answer: That answer is simply not revealed in the film. I doubt her body would have been left abandoned. Once can presume that, according to the traditions of the time and location, she would have been buried. But where she was buried and by whom is simply not known.

Question: Why did Remus agree to make Harry his son's godfather? Teddy would nowhere near be safe as long as Voldemort is hunting Harry.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Remus knew that if he and Tonks were killed, Harry, as godfather, was someone who understood what it was like to have grown up as an orphan. Assuming Harry lived, he was the best person to mentor young Teddy. Teddy was raised by Tonk's mother, Andromeda, but, as godfather, Harry played a significant role in Teddy's life.

The Queen's Justice - S7-E3

Question: Why were the captured and imprisoned Ellaria and Tyene Sand both with their shirts opened and their midriffs exposed?

Chosen answer: As mother and daughter are being paraded through the streets, they are wearing their usual Dornish clothing. Dorn, located in the south, has a hot, tropical climate. Dorn residents generally wear lesser and lighter-weight outfits year-round. This is what they were wearing when Euron Greyjoy captured them.

Question: Did Snape know that Draco and Harry were the masters of the Elder Wand?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: No, Snape never knew this. Draco had briefly become the Elder Wand's master when he disarmed Dumbledore on the Astronomy Tower and prior to Harry disarming Draco at Malfoy Manor. Draco never knew that he commanded the Elder Wand and never physically possessed it. Harry figured out later how the wand's allegiance had changed, making him its master.

Question: At some time in the film Philip shouts at Blackbeard and tells him that the mermaid has a name, "Syrena." How does he know her name?

Chosen answer: Because Philip is the one who named her Syrena. She did not have a name, at least not a conventional human one, prior to that.

The One With Phoebe's Uterus - S4-E11

Question: When Phoebe is sitting on the couch with her mother, having just received the puppy, towards the end you can see a strange thing sitting on the couch behind/next to her. I can only view it on a small screen, but it looks like a phallic shape. It would make sense, considering that her mother makes erotic pottery, but is that what it is?

Chosen answer: It is one of Phoebe's mother's sculptures. Whether or not this particular piece is erotic is debatable, but it can be defined as "non-objective" abstract art, meaning there's no recognizable shape or subject to it.

Question: Why did Voldemort want the Defense Against the Dark Arts job in the first place? Was it to get the students to be his followers?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He would be able to more easily recruit new followers, but he would also have access to an immense amount of Dark magic information stored in the library. He also suspected that one or more of the Deathly Hallows was hidden at Hogwarts.

Question: When Hermione says "if we succeed more than one innocent life could be spared" why was she saying it in such a surprised tone?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Because it was at that moment she understood what Dumbledore had meant when he said earlier that more than one life could be spared - meaning that both Buckbeak and Sirius Black could be saved.

Question: When it's the first Quidditch practice session and Ron and Hermione come onto the pitch why didn't Wood get rid of them? It seems out of character for Wood to let people who aren't on the teams from any houses anywhere near the pitch.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He knows they are Harry's friends and they are Gryffindors.

Greg Dwyer

Question: Why didn't Benny laugh at Smalls at the start like the others right after Smalls said that his life was over? And why did Benny make Smalls come play with them after how he saw he wasn't good at it, even if he did make a whole team when they could get anyone else?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Benny is more empathetic towards Smalls than the others initially are since, as a game, baseball is meant to be more about having fun than winning or losing. Inviting Smalls to join their ragtag team, even with his poor performance, is Benny's attempt to build Smalls' self-esteem and confidence in himself.

The Engagement Reaction - S4-E23

Question: When they're at the hospital Howard never said that he told his mother that he was engaged, so how would Bernadette know he said that?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She figured it out from what he did say. Since their engagement is a relatively recent development, it's an easy deduction that the shock of such a huge step in their relationship is what knocked his mother for a loop.

Question: Even though Pettigrew valued his own life over his friends, why not just lie and tell him they went to Ireland to keep them safe?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Wizards have access to veritaserum, the truth potion, and there are others who can use legilimacy to read minds. Any lies Pettigrew told would be exposed eventually.

Question: Just before Harry casts expelliarmus on Snape, why did Ron grab Hermione's sleeve?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He was just pulling her out of the way to what he thought was a safer spot and out of the line of fire from Snape's wand.

Question: Were there ever plans for a sequel, if so why was it never made?

Darth Crucible

Chosen answer: A sequel was not only planned, but money was spent developing sets and costumes. However, Dolph Lundgren did not want to reprise the role, so Laird Hamilton was picked to play He-Man with Albert Pyu set to direct. Canon Films, who produced the first movie, was also planning on producing a Spider-Man movie. However, Canon Films still owed money to Mattel and Marvel for the character rights that they couldn't feasibly pay, so both projects had to be scrapped. Incidentally, not wanting to let money go to waste on sets and costumes, they had Pyu come up with a movie to utilize them, which resulted in Cyborg starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Question: When Bond gets trapped underwater, could it be possible for him to survive using the air in the tyres?

Darth Crucible

Chosen answer: The Mythbusters tested that very thing on their show. The result was that it was impossible to breathe in air from a leaking tire while underwater.

Question: In this movie, it is said that the well was apparently only partially closed. Why didn't Samara's parents close it all the way? Couldn't she have escaped? Also if the well really was closed, then why was the cover to the well on the tape and the cover to the movie itself show the well being fully closed?

Chosen answer: The lid being partially open is a reference to the first movie whenever Rachel and Noah removed the lid after they discovered the well. When Rachel visits Evelyn in the mental hospital, she ominously tells Rachel that she "let the dead get in". Rachel was the first person to discover what happened to Samara and thought she was helping her spirit, but unknowingly was giving Samara more power to escape and possess someone, such as Aidan. Whenever Samara exits the TV and kills someone, that is just part of the curse. The lid being partially open pertains only to Rachel's actions in the first movie, therefore Rachel must be the one to close it.
