Season 7 generally

Question: I don't understand why Leviathans feed on humans. They were created before humans existed and were locked away before humans existed. Why do they feed on humans?

Chosen answer: God created the Leviathans. These beasts were among God's earliest creations, predating angels and humans. Whereas Death "personally found them entertaining", God worried the beasts would, as Death said, "Chomp the entire petri dish" as they proved to be too strong, too hungry, and too destructive. Sometime after he bound the Darkness, God locked away the Leviathans in Purgatory - which Death reveals as being specifically created to contain Leviathans. In addition, after locking the Leviathans up, God devised a means of killing the Leviathans should they ever escape Purgatory. When He had the Word of God tablets created, God made one for the Leviathans in case they ever escaped, putting instructions for the weapon on the tablet as well as a warning about them. In other words, they feed on humans to make them stronger.

Question: At the very end, how did the predators not know that their wounded rescuee had an alien inside of him? After all, he was able to see one inside Miller before he was shot by Alexa.

Chosen answer: They simply didn't scan their fallen comrade for a xenomorph. Mostly because he was wearing his mask and they didn't know he had taken it off and been incubated.

Question: If Susie's body had been in a bag in the safe, how did people who went into his house (Lindsey when she broke into his house through the basement window) not smell her dead body?

Chosen answer: The only person who went into the basement while the safe was there was Lindsey. The safe was airtight, so the odor at that point would have been contained inside it.

Question: The final episode of the third series sees a discussion between Ben and Jake with regards to the news on the telly. After Ben comes out with "That can't be the Pope, because the Pope wears barbed wire pants and kills anybody who knows that Jesus had children", Jake says that this is from a film. Does anybody know what film this is from please?

Neil Jones

Chosen answer: Angels and Demons.

Question: When Jim tells Kim to ask Edward to help them break into his house, Kim says asking him wasn't fair. What did she mean?

JohnShel91

Chosen answer: Kim knows that Edward loves her and will do anything that she asks of him. She is hesitant to ask him to commit a crime. Edward will know that the robbery is a bad idea, but will go through with it anyway, if it will make Kim happy. She knows this and does not want to take advantage of him.

Question: Why did the people want to kill the governor in the first place?

Chosen answer: Her husband wanted her dead so that he could further his own political aims and step in as her replacement.

Question: I know that this is a cartoon, but could Hank and Peggy really produce a blonde son, with both them having brown hair?

Chosen answer: Parents, even if they each have brown hair and brown eyes, can produce a blonde, blue-eyed child if they both carry the recessive genes for those traits.

Question: When being questioned by police at the beginning, Tony says he did time for 'buying dollars'. Does this mean he traded for US dollars, and if he did, what did he hand over in exchange?

Chosen answer: It meant that he was buying US dollars from tourists or businesspeople and selling them to refugees who are willing to pay far above the normal exchange rate to have American money for when they attempt to flee Cuba to America. It's a "safe crime" to tell them he was in prison for, rather than being a killer.

Question: What is the song at the end of the film when they revealing how they stole the egg on the train? It was an homage to in-a-gadda-da-vida (the keyboard/bass solo bits). It is not the song on the soundtrack called "the real story" nor any other song on it. Thanks.

Kenneth Brown Premium member

Chosen answer: "Rito a Los Angeles" by Giuseppe de Luca.

Question: With all of the technology in the "Star Wars" universe, could Padme and Anakin really not know that she was pregnant with twins? Even our real-life technology usually makes women aware of this before the pregnancy is half over.

Chosen answer: The level of technology within the Star Wars franchise is never fully explained within the films; also, most of the technology depicted deals with non-medical applications. Padme was also trying to keep her pregnancy secret since Jedi were not allowed to marry or become parents at the time this film is set within the Star Wars canon, so it's likely she rarely, if ever, saw the SW equivalent of a doctor during her pregnancy.

Show generally

Question: I watch reruns all the time but I always miss what happened with Booth's girlfriend. What happened to her?

Chosen answer: Booth proposes to her and she tells him that she is not the marrying kind. She moves out of the apartment and they break up.

Question: Why didn't Rocky have a speaking part in the movie?

Answer: There are a number of possibilities: perhaps the studio did it to cut down on cost, as speaking parts require higher pay. Or perhaps they simply had nothing funny for the character to say. Or it could be intentional that they chose to have him remain mute.

Jason Hoffman

Question: Please correct me if I am mistaken, but in the lyrics that the frog choir is singing in the first scene in the great, one of the lines is "Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble." This is a direct reference to the witches spell in Shakespeare's Macbeth, is it not?

Shane Carlson

Chosen answer: That is correct.

Question: The lightsaber Anakin wields in this film is described as being his first lightsaber, so why does he say "Not again!" when it's destroyed in the Geonosis factory?

JohnShel91

Chosen answer: Because he dropped it earlier while chasing Zam Wesell on Coruscant. Obi-Wan caught it that time and scolded him for losing it.

Question: This is a two part question. 1) If Snape wants Harry to have the sword of Gryffindor, why would he place it at the bottom of a frozen pond instead of placing it somewhere more accessible? 2) Does the locket try to choke Harry because it senses the threat posed by the presence of the sword?

Shane Carlson

Chosen answer: 1) Snape's motive for hiding the sword in the pond is never explained "in the movie." As for the book, it explicitly states that Dumbledore instructed Snape to give the sword to Harry when possible, but make so it takes bravery and courage to acquire, like a true Gryffindor. Snape then found they were in the Forest of Dean, and he himself placed the sword there. 2) The Locket was partially sentient and could sense that the sword was a danger to it.

Question: How did Han Solo and Chewbacca meet?

Tjwsdad2000

Chosen answer: In the Star Wars Expanded Universe, Han was an Imperial pilot several years before the events of "A New Hope". Han refused a direct order to execute a group of Wookiees which included Chewbacca; Han was subsequently dismissed by the Empire. Chewbacca, however, was bound by a Wookiee tradition that dictates that they become the lifelong protector of anyone who saves their lives; thus, he quickly became Han's companion as well as his bodyguard and copilot when Han began his new career as a smuggler. That said, the Expanded Universe isn't canon, so we may get an "official" story in the Han Solo prequel film that's in production.

zendaddy621

Answer: While Han was in the Imperial academy, he was thrown into a pit to be killed and eaten by Chewbacca; however, the two of them ended up working together to escape.

Question: The creature comes to the village and Ivy waits for Lucius to grab her hand. But Noah was in the house under the house floor with Ivy's family. So who was dressed as the creature?

Chosen answer: It was one of the male village elders who was disguised as the creature. The elders had perpetuated the hoax that strange, dangerous beasts lived in the woods and would attack the village if anyone strayed beyond its borders. It was all part of the ruse to frighten and restrain the younger villagers when they became too curious and adventurous and tried to cross the perimeter. The elders wanted to prevent the youth from learning about the modern world outside. Noah later found his father's costume under the floorboards and secretly began pretending to be one of the creatures.

Question: When the HAB blows and he loses his crop of potatoes, how do the other potatoes already harvested survive? They are just sitting in trays in the HAB and surely should have been destroyed by the vacuum.

Chosen answer: Given the thin atmosphere and cold, the potatoes would have been nearly instantly frozen and partially dehydrated. They would still be edible and nutritious.
