Na Triobloidi - S2-E13

Question: One thing I haven't ever been able to figure out is this: how does SAMCRO know exactly where Cameron is headed after he kidnapped Abel? They had no direct clues, and even after watching the series a second time, it still doesn't quite make sense to me.


Chosen answer: They knew he owned the boat at the docks as that was how he brought the guns into the country. They assumed he would head there when he was needing to flee with Abel.


Answer: They didn't know he was headed to Belfast until Maureen Ashby calls Gemma and tells her that Abel is in Belfast. Cameron is her cousin and he even brings Abel to her apartment.


Question: When everyone exited the tour cars, they went downhill to see the Triceratops, but how could they get inside the paddock? Is there no fence surrounding the animals? And is the Trike we see the only Trike in JP? My main question is: Why is the Trike free to roam everywhere it wants, I mean they didn't have to get through a fence to get there because we see the tour cars behind them, and they are not behind a fence.

Chosen answer: A Triceratops is a herbivore. Therefor, it doesn't have the same fences as the T-Rex has and is probably separated by a moat or gap. The largest part of the park is probably like this and access for personnel to the herbivores is probably easy, it's with the carnivores they took extra measures. There are probably other triceratops but this one was sick and was probably separated from the group in case it is contagious.


Question: Why did the young Michael withdraw just before meeting Hanna in the prison? Was it because it was too painful for him to meet his love face-to-face when she was in such a pathetic situation? OR, was it because he didn't want to let her know that he could discover her secret (as his original intention to meet was to seek her permission to expose it in court), which could break her much more than the trial, as that's what she has been hiding for many many years?

Question: When Adam first steps out of the house and ends up on Saturn, he's only there for a few seconds in real time, but Barbara tells him he was gone for two hours. Yet towards the end of the movie when Beetlejuice banishes Barbara to Saturn, she's there for a considerably longer time (at least long enough to wrangle a sandworm and co-opt it) but ends up only being gone for a few minutes and manages to return to the house in time to stop Beetlejuice from marrying. Why is this? Since she was on Saturn longer than Adam's first time there, shouldn't she have been gone for longer than two Earth hours?

Serious B

Chosen answer: Time flows differently on Saturn and in the afterlife than it does in the house. Not faster or slower, just differently. Ten minutes on Saturn could be hours, or months, or just seconds in the house. There is no connection or relationship between the passage of time in one place and the passage of time in another.


Question: How did the FBI find the note Jordan gave Donnie when he was wearing a wire?


Chosen answer: As seen from Donne's reaction when the FBI storm the building shortly after, It should be assumed that Donnie told the FBI himself, and kept the note as evidence. One of the reasons for this could be that Donnie must have felt betrayed or something similar.


Question: After Cady sends a candy cane note to herself, pretending that it came from Regina, Gretchen says that Regina does not even like Cady very much. So why is Regina still allowing Cady to associate with The Plastics? As the "queen bee", she could probably decide to ban Cady from the group.

Chosen answer: Regina enjoys manipulating people, and she views Cady as a relatively easy person to manipulate, finding her more useful/amusing to keep in their circle. It's a running theme of the film that the friendships between all of the Plastics is very tenuous, because of the catty, manipulative nature of the girls.


Question: What ever happened to the female villain in the end?

Chosen answer: We don't see what happens to Angel Dust after Colossus carries her (and Negasonic Teenage Warhead) away from the collapsing Helicarrier. Both women were unconscious and we can only assume that Colossus put Angel Dust down somewhere before returning to Deadpool for the end scenes. Her fate beyond that - perhaps escape, incarceration or even recruitment - is unknown.

Question: During the lightsaber duel on Mustafar, why does Anakin even bother to try to make the jump that he afterwards regretted? Couldn't he had just simply used the force to push the lava towards Obi-Wan, killing him, and then make the jump to safety?

Chosen answer: Maybe, but he is overconfident and impulsive. He has also let rage blind him. Anakin is probably the better fighter of the two, but Obi-Wan kept his cool and analyzed as he fought while Anakin fought angrily and ultimately foolishly which left an opening for Obi-Wan to maim him. It's said in almost every episode of Star Wars not to let fear and anger cloud your judgement. Here are the results.

Grumpy Scot

Question: When Mr. Matuschek is recovering in the hospital and explaining to Mr. Kralik why he suspected him of having an affair with his wife, he mentions having received an anonymous letter warning him of his wife's infidelity. But who sent the letter? To all appearances, the errand boy Pepi seems to know everything that is going on, or nearly so. He doesn't know the cad is Mr. Vadas, but he probably has a good idea about what is going on from Mrs. Matuschek's phone calls. Still, the author of the anonymous letter to Mr. Matuschek is never revealed. Or is he?


Question: How did Littlefoot, Ducky, Petire, and Spike get out of the tar?

Chosen answer: We are not shown how they got out of the tar.

Show generally

Question: I saw an episode on FOX the other night where Peter flew around the world delivering packages and getting smarter the more he travelled. When I pressed the (i) button on my TV remote for info on the episode it said it was from series 13, however I own series 13 on DVD and that episode is not on there. I had never seen the episode before. So my question is this: are the seasons labelled differently on TV as opposed to the DVDs or is it a difference in the way countries label seasons, as I live in the UK not the US?


Chosen answer: This is down to a difference between countries. I am also UK based and had this problem. What the UK considers a series of Family Guy is different to what the US considers. Another example is Series 6 in the UK features an episode called Saving Private Bryan. However, under the US listings (on IMDB) it comes up as series 5.

A Demon

Question: How does the movie actually end? Do Dolly and Horace go into the Church to get married?

Luka Keats

Chosen answer: Yes.

Question: Behind the desk of Teasle is a distinguished service cross, a silver star and a purple heart. So he is himself a very brave fighter. Why would such a "war hero" be so mad about another war hero, a recipient of the medal of honor, delivered only by the President of the United States? Jealousy? Rage about the death of his friend?

Chosen answer: At the start of the film when Rambo is causing all these problems, the Sheriff has no idea who John Rambo is (Vietnam War hero), so he thinks Rambo is just another America-disrespecting drifter (the American flag on Rambo's jacket). Also, Teasle is a law and order guy who does not want his town disturbed by outsiders. After the fireworks and Teasle finds out who Rambo is and also meets Colonel Troutman, Teasle's mission becomes personal: rage at the death of his best friend, humiliation in front of his deputies, the incompetence of the state National Guard to subdue Rambo, and also a generational factor: Teasle probably served in Korea or WW2, when America was top dog in the world, so he will not allow some hippie ex-soldier from a "lost" war best him.


Day 5: 6:00 AM - 7:00 AM - S5-E24

Question: How did Jack get kidnapped by the Chinese, beaten to a pulp and end up on a ship in the middle of the ocean in about 10 minutes?

Peter Kneil

Question: At the Masquerade Ball, why is Raoul wearing the same jacket twice, with one arm out?

Chosen answer: Consider that the event is a masquerade ball, where everyone's attire is meant to be intricate to the point of being "overdesigned." Look carefully. In Raoul's case, he is wearing a dark navy blue, uniform style form-fitting jacket with horizontal gold braiding flanked by gold buttons, shoulder epaulets and a standing collar. What you see draping his left side is a matching short jacket over the shoulder, which is emblematic of a classic hero in art and literature. The short jacket is sewn on as a design element, of course - not just draped there, as it would fall. So one arm isn't exactly "out." You see the sleeve and the braiding of the short draped jacket dangling behind him when he and Christine are dancing. There is also a shirt underneath it all with more of the same gold braiding design.

Question: When Nick first appears on the screen, he walks in front of a big truck driven by a ram. Is the ram driving the truck Doug (Bellwether's sniper who composes the serum)? Also, when Judy and Nick confront Bellwether at the museum, is Doug the ram who blocks the doorway (dressed as a cop) Judy and Nick try to escape through or a different ram?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: It is possible as this ram does sound very similar to Doug, but there are also many similar character models in the film that look the same but have very minor visual differences, the only true way to know would be if one of the creators reveled the identity of the ram.


The Good-Bye Room - S4-E16

Question: Who sings the song "You Are My Sunshine" at the end of this episode?

Melanie Elsworthy

Chosen answer: According to, it is Carly Simon.

Question: Why does Barnabas refuse to take Angelique's heart when she offers it?

Chosen answer: Quite simply, it's because Barnabas hates Angelique and has hated her for about 200 years. Back in the 1700s, the witch Angelique and Barnabas had a brief romantic fling; as a result, Angelique fell madly in love with Barnabas. Unfortunately, Barnabas moved on and fell in love with another woman, Josette. In a fit of jealousy, Angelique framed Josette for witchcraft and caused Josette's death. Angelique then cursed Barnabas to become an immortal vampire, suffering the loss of Josette forever. So, Barnabas hates Angelique like poison and would never forgive her.

Question: When Elizabeth is interviewing Victoria for the governess job, Victoria says that men would "become unmanageable" if there was gender equality. What does she mean by this?

Chosen answer: Victoria means that women traditionally manipulate men quite easily by using sex and sexy appearances. If true "gender equality" existed, then men would see and respect women as more than mere sex objects, which would undermine women's control over men.

Question: I don't understand why Victoria calls herself "Josette" at the end of the movie. Is she really Josette in a reincarnated body? Or does she want to pretend to be Josette?

Chosen answer: In the original television series, Victoria actually was the pre-incarnation of Josette, inasmuch as Victoria traveled back in time and became Josette in the 1700s. Tim Burton's movie didn't pursue the time-travel part of the original storyline; so, in the movie, we're left with the "reincarnation" explanation. In both the series and the movie, the point is that Victoria and Josette are the same person. Although Barnabas didn't immediately recognize Victoria as Josette in the old TV series, he instantly recognized her as Josette in the new movie. Toward the end of the film, Victoria finally accepted that she was Josette and that Barnabas was her long-lost love.
