Question: At the end of the movie it shows what happens to everyone. It shows Mary and William Stafford walking in the meadow and 3 children. There's a boy, presumably the boy Mary had with Henry and Anne's daughter Elizabeth. Does anybody know who the other girl is? She looks older than Elizabeth so I assume she's not Mary and Stafford's daughter.

Nikki Yates

Chosen answer: It is unknown who the older girl is, but probably the child of a close relative. In the movie (which significantly differs from the novel and from history), Mary is shown to only have given birth to one child (King Henry's son) before her marriage to William Stafford. Therefore, the girl could not be Mary's child by her first marriage.

Question: What could possibly have made Teasle think that it was Rambo who killed Gault? Teasle was fully aware that Rambo was injured and unarmed and that Gault was in a helicopter trying desperately to shoot him (against orders). So how the hell did he come to that conclusion?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Rambo essentially admitted responsibility, when he tried to make peace with the officers as he stood near the body. As well, we can assume the chopper pilot reported the incident - while he may not have seen Rambo, rocks don't throw themselves at helicopters.

Cutting It Close - S2-E1

Question: Did Jesse know they were going to cut his hair? Did he ask them to make an episode about him getting a haircut?

Chosen answer: No.

Question: Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the credits show that Panchito Gomez played young Abraham. I've seen Panchito Gomez in 80's movies such as Tuff Turf and he doesn't resemble at all the actor playing young Abraham. However, he DOES resemble the gentleman in the cowboy hat who stiffs Abraham money for Selena's performance and says "She's just a woman." I always wondered if the credits made a mistake. Anyone know?

Chosen answer: Looking at the credits on IMDB it does show that Panchito Gomez played young Abraham in Selena as well as the role in Tuff Turf. Given that 12 years had passed between the two movies, it's possible that Panchito had gotten older and didn't look like he was when he was 22 compared to mid 30s.

Question: What is the thing in the background at 00:31:23? It looks like a tentacle or worm but I really don't know. I've scoured the internet looking for information but I can't find anything relating to the subject. It seems this hasn't been brought up anywhere. I'd greatly appreciate an answer. Thanks in advance.

Eric Lambert

Chosen answer: It's a Leviathan, the same kind of "flying worm" seen later in the final battle.

Question: What happened to Hermione's cat Crookshanks? He's not seen at all at the start of this movie. I can't remember if it's mentioned in the books what happened to him; the movie doesn't seem to mention it either.

Heather Benton

Chosen answer: The last time we see Crookshanks is at the Weasley house. They likely left him there.

Attack of Big MACC - S3-E12

Question: Is Mac inspired or copied from Johnny 5 from Short Circuit?

Quantom X

Question: How exactly did David hack into WOPR?

Chosen answer: While wardialing every number in Sunnyvale, California to find the game company's number, he found a number that led to a back door into the WOPR.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: I don't understand what the device was that Cage and Rita had to steal. How exactly does it find where the Omega's real location is?

alamchop

Chosen answer: Basically, it reverses the psychic connection from the omega seeing all the alphas, to an alpha seeing the omega.

MasterOfAll

Question: In the book, Snape and Lupin look at the Marauder's Map to see that Ron, Peter, Hermione, Harry and Sirius are all in the Shrieking Shack. How come Snape and Lupin didn't notice the second/future Harry and Hermione when they were near the whomping willow on the map?

Chosen answer: They didn't notice the second ones because they weren't close enough to the tree when they were focused on that part of the map. There are hundreds of dots moving around the castle and it is possible they were just missed.

kristenlouise3

Question: The lone woman on the bridge. What was she saying?

Chosen answer: She was listing some of the things that naturally kill people in the world, such as diseases and natural disasters, and said that this was her time to kill people, because the Founding Fathers gave her the right to Purge.

Show generally

Question: I've been re-watching this show, and have noticed this in nearly every episode. In scenes inside GD, there's always one person, a background extra, who seems to have clear plastic wrap over their clothes. Do you know what that is all about?

Holly Halfman

Chosen answer: It's basically just a type of suit that's made for whatever special project they're working on. No different than a lab coat, hazmat suit, fire coat, etc.

Question: When Glenn Close (Bennett) tears up the signed papers at the end, I wondered is she legally allowed to do that?

Beau Peterson

Chosen answer: The paper required her signature as Vice President to make it legally binding, she refused to sign it earlier in the movie so it wouldn't have been a legal document at the point she tore it up - so theoretically yes, she would have been able to.

Question: What was that thing with the big eye Rango and his posse were walking by?

Answer: TV Tropes mentions that the big eye might be an enormous alligator, because alligators are known to live in sewers.

Question: Why didn't Roadkill the armadillo die by getting run over, and how did he put himself back together?

Question: How did Megumi die? Did the 2 coworkers kill her or did she kill herself because of what they did to her?

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: She killed herself with potassium cyanide after what Adam and Bruno did to her.

Sierra1

Question: When the couple go to the guy to help get rid of the ghost, he touches the picture and sees images. He then tosses the picture at them while yelling in Japanese and causing the couple to flee. What is the translation of what he was saying? Joshua Jackson tells his wife what the guy "said" but to me it looked like he was lying.

lartaker1975

Question: Why would the loco derail if the siding switch was set to the siding where the freight train went?

Chosen answer: It wouldn't derail, it would break the bolt on points - the part of switch that moves, causing the points.

Question: Baron Wolfgang von Strucker stated in the after credits scene, "Sooner or later, they will meet the twins." Who exactly is "they"?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: By "they" he means "Captain America and his colorful friends", in other words the Avengers.

Sierra1

The One With Joey's New Girlfriend - S4-E5

Question: Does anyone know what the song is at the end of the episode The One With Joey's New Girlfriend? It plays for about five seconds when Chandler asks if he can sleep on Monica's couch.

eagle203

Chosen answer: It isn't a song in its own right. It's incidental music. It sounds like a variation in the style of "I'll Be There For You."
