Question: When Logan returns to the mansion, how come Rogue got so excited? she couldn't have known it was him, and also, did she not think that it might upset Bobby that she was really excited to see another man?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She has a bit of a crush on Logan, and when she heard the motorcycle (which Logan had "borrowed") she assumed it was him. She's a teenager, so she probably wasn't thinking about Bobby's feelings.

Question: How could Amanda have gone to school or even left her house? She was supposed to be dead.

MikeH

Answer: A real life problem with abducted children, especially those abducted at such a young age, is that after a short period of time they begin to grow and look drastically different than when they were abducted. Amanda could have been home schooled for some time and passed off as the adopted child of her abductors to the general public after a relatively short amount of time. Unfortunately, the average person would likely not even recognize Amanda if they saw her out in public.

Question: Why wasn't Patrick arrested for killing the child molester?

MikeH

Chosen answer: Even though he executes an unarmed man, it is doubtful given the circumstances that he would be investigated with much fervor for his actions. One police officer has just been shot and killed so Patrick's actions could easily be described as self-defense in the eyes of an investigator. Anyone making a claim to the contrary would risk having to stand up for a child murdering cop killer.

George Joins the Neighborhood Wha-tcha and Raises the Vigil-ante - S6-E9

Question: When George wants to talk to Max alone, Angie says "The last time you tried to talk to our son, he went all Chippendales across the street." What did she mean by this?

Chosen answer: Early in the episode George advised Max to be aggressive when making the first move on a girl. When he goes to the Mary Kay Latourneau type woman across the street. He takes his shirt off, like a Chippendales male stripper.

Question: Got a few questions. First Question. When the emperor is killed in ROTJ, doesn't that mark the end of the Galactic Empire? If so, wouldn't the establishment of the New Republic mean that The First Order is at this point just an extremist group trying to throw a coup? Second Question: Whether or not the first question is a yes or a no, wouldn't the New Republic have knowledge of Starkiller Base being constructed? Third Question: Is there any influence as to why Kylo Ren basically gets temper tantrums? An example being when Rey escaped or when he found out the droid escaped Jakku Last Question: Kylo Ren stopped a strong laser bolt and has to ability to freeze people. How was he so easily beaten by Rey with no jedi training?

Chosen answer: Yes to the first. Not necessarily to the second, as they undoubtedly worked very hard to keep it secret. For the third question, the dark side of the force feeds on and enhances anger, rage, hatred. Ren is full of these emotions. As for the last question, remember that Ren took a shot to the guts from Chewbacca's bowcaster, a weapon that blows everyone it hits back several meters, killing them instantly. Ren took a knee for a moment then got right back up. He is using the bulk of his concentration on using his Force powers to survive and heal that wound and manage the pain. That's why he keeps beating his abdomen with his fist during his fight with Rey. Rey is also abnormally strong with the Force. These two factors combined to make their first fight evenly matched.

Question: Hypothetically speaking, if Amidala did sign the treaty, how would that affect later events eventually leading up to the establishment of the Galactic Empire?

Chosen answer: In the long run, nothing would have changed. A war would still break out between the Republic and CIS, leading to Palpatine gaining power and subsequently becoming Emperor. The specifics may change, but the long-term outcome would not. It would, however, cause Amidala to not meet Anakin, and subsequently he would not become Darth Vader in an attempt to save her.

Question: Coruscant is basically destroyed in Star Wars: The Clone Wars cartoon show. Why didn't they show the destruction from the droid invasion after crashing Grievous' Invisible Hand into the planet?

Chosen answer: The Clone Wars show aired 3 years after the film came out. They had not planned on there having been a droid invasion.

Question: Near the ending, when Stacker removes his helmet to speak to Mako, he leaves Chuck solo. Why is the neural link or drift thing not harming Chuck since he's briefly solo?

Roman Curiel

Chosen answer: The Jaeger isn't doing anything strenuous at this time, it's just standing still.

Question: #1 Wouldn't the space suits used on Mars have a heating device built into them, being it's so cold on Mars? Why did he have to rely on the RTG for heat in the rover? #2 Just before lifting off from Mars we see Watney cutting his hair and beard. He appears to be in another Hab, but when he's approaching the MAV in the rover, there's no Hab in site.

Chosen answer: 1) The suits are heated, however this uses power (something he is rationing) and requires him to wear the suit at all times. He often removes it whilst in the rover. This is elaborated upon in the book. 2) He is shaving in the base of the MAV, in the area containing the ascent spacesuit.

Big Scare in the Big Easy - S1-E4

Question: When the gunk gets on Daphne's shoe, why was she so upset? Why not just clean the gunk off? Or get one of the other shoes out of her backpack (which she had with her)?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: Henry gets shot and when he time travels, he dies in Clare's arms. Years later, Henry appears to both Clare and Alba. So is he still time traveling or is he really dead?

Chosen answer: He's really dead. But while he was alive, he time-traveled far into the future and saw Clare and Alba. His "individual timeline" is scattered, out of chronological order, all over the "real timeline, " so he can appear in the "future" as a younger (or, in this case, living) person.

Question: Why did Werner wait for 35 years to tell Julius that he had a twin brother?

Chosen answer: Vincent was a point of shame and regret. Nobody involved wanted Julius to know Vincent even existed.

Jason Hoffman

Question: How could Mary-Ann not know she was giving birth to Vincent shortly after Julius was born? Wouldn't she have felt another intense pain to indicate she was going into labor a second time? Plus, how would they be able to keep the birth of Vincent a secret from her in the first place?

Chosen answer: She could have been unconscious by that point.

Untethered - S7-E9

Question: When Goren infiltrates the prison, he says that his name is William Brady. He is then given a truth serum and under its effects, he admits his real name and that he's a cop. Given this information, why would he still be kept a prisoner instead of somebody calling the precinct he works at and inform Captain Ross?

Persona - S10-E8

Question: While gathering evidence against Brent, it's discovered that Linnie was really Caroline Cresswell and that she killed her first husband in self-defense. Since she started using an alias after she escaped, would her marriage to her second husband Jonah be legal?

Chosen answer: The marriage would be deemed fraudulent, since she did not use her real name.

Question: Shouldn't Bruce be as insane as Falcone? Unless the dosages delivered to Batman and Falcone, respectively, were different. Also, why didn't Rachel yell and scream and go crazy like Falcone did when he was hit?

Chosen answer: Bruce is just as infected as Falcone, however he is rescued by Alfred shortly after he is poisoned and given an antidote by Lucius shortly after that. He is then bedridden for many hours. If he had not been saved as quickly as he was, he no doubt would have been a blubbering mass just like Falcone. The reason Rachel and even Bruce don't react the same as Falcone the moment they are poisoned comes down to how each individual person reacts to fear: Bruce tries to fight, Rachel faints, Falcone screams in horror.

Question: Why did Bruce fire Mr. Earl? It's not like he did anything bad such as affiliating with the mob or Ra's Al Ghul.

Chosen answer: He believes (rightly) that Earle is not interested in the good of the company as much as his own profits. He also knows Fox will do a better job and be more inline with what he's planning (becoming Batman).

Jason Hoffman

Question: When Bob is looking at a video, he stops at a figure of a woman. He then uses a switch and watches as the woman in the video turns into another woman. Why does he keep going back and forth between the two women?

Chosen answer: It's only one woman in reality. He had sex with a woman named Connie, but woke up next to her later and thought it was his friend Donna. The video showing it as two women is Bob losing his grip on reality due to his addiction to Substance D.

Question: When Shang mourns for his father's death, Mulan approaches to him and says "I'm sorry" in her normal voice. How come Shang didn't tell she was female because of her voice?

Roman Curiel

Chosen answer: He just isn't paying that much attention to her voice at that moment. Think about it like this: If you had just lost your father to war, are distraught that you never got to say goodbye, and a male friend you had been training with for some time spoke two words to you in support and they sounded somewhat feminine, would you automatically assume they were actually a woman disguised as a man?
