New this week Question: Ted's friend Dom knows a guy who can find Mary for him. Later on it's revealed that Dom is also Woogie, Mary's old boyfriend who got weird on her and is still obsessed with her. However, if Dom knew Healy could find Mary why didn't he use him himself to find Mary and stalk her again?

New this week Question: When Eddie goes to see Dan about the test results, Dan says that the symbiote is damaging Eddie's organs but Venom says it's part of the symbiosis. Was Venom really damaging Eddie's body? If not, what was he really doing?

New this week Answer: Venom was using Eddie, much like Riot, to invade Earth. Venom was damaging Eddie's body until he grew to like him, which is why he said he could fix it while Dan was telling Eddie all of this.

The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

New this week Question: In an episode not long before this, Monica said that she is 26 years old. At the concert, she meets a young man who she used to babysit, and he is now a lawyer. Is she old enough to have babysat someone who now has that career?

New this week Answer: It is never really made clear what the age difference was when she babysat for him. She mentions at one point that he was eight, but that is about it. It isn't stated how long he has been a lawyer, so perhaps he became a lawyer, and gotten a job at the firm he works for fairly recently.

New this week Question: Did any of the human characters in this movie appear in any episode of the Barney franchise before or after the film was released?

New this week Question: Is this movie based on the fairy tale "The Emperor's New Clothes" by Hans Christian Andersen? (02:17:20 - 04:00:45)

New this week Answer: No, not in the slightest. The names are similar, but it's an entirely new and different story.

New this month Question: Why was Sorrento's avatar's eyes glowing yellow when he first sees Irock then turn blue after he sighs? Was this a reference to Superman's heat vision? I don't get it. Does his Clark Kent looking avatar have those powers?

New this month Question: Why is Peter still bullied by people in school even though he is in college? I'm referring to the scene where people hit him with backpacks and call him names as well as the scene in "Spider-Man 3" where he is bullied in Dr. Connors' class.

New this month Question: Why would Flash Thompson of all people attend Harry's funeral? He bullied Peter and Harry in the first movie.

Cody Fairless-Lee

New this month Answer: It had been a few years since they were in high school. Perhaps Flash had matured since then and realised his behaviour towards them was wrong, so he came to pay his respects.

Casual Person

This is true to the comics. Eventually Flash matures and becomes close friends with both Peter and Harry.

New this month Question: How did Venom know about The Sandman trying to save his daughter?

Cody Fairless-Lee

New this month Answer: Sandman is a fugitive who is on the run. It is more than likely that his name has appeared in the news at some point. His daughter and her illness would likely have also been mentioned as well. Seeing as how Eddie worked at the Daily Bugle, it shouldn't have took long for him to put two and two together.

New this month Question: When exactly did the Phantom start teaching Christine?

New this week Answer: Christine was extremely close to her father, who spoke to her of an "Angel of Music" whom he would send from heaven after his death. Christine entered the Paris Conservatoire and trained for four years to become an opera singer to please her father. However, by the end of the four years, she had lost her passion for singing and the music. When Christine arrives at the Opéra Garnier, she was described as "sounding like a rusty hinge." That is when Erik, the Phantom of the Opera, began to speak to Christine during times that she went, alone, to the chapel in the Opera House. Erik began to tutor her, telling her that he is the "Angel of Music" of whom her father had spoken.

New this month Question: When Eddie is in his apartment trying to eat, Venom tells him not to answer the door. After that, there's a knock on the door. How was Venom able to tell that there was someone outside Eddie's apartment?

New this month Answer: The symbiote has heightened senses. It could hear someone approaching.

New this month Question: Why did Terry and Erin put the kids in one bedroom at first? They had another room anyway, as is revealed when they suddenly make the new bedroom for Ruby, before the social worker visits. And if they want the kids to trust them, it would make sense to give a teenage girl her own room.

New this month Question: If Parker was possessing Josh throughout the whole movie, why didn't he just kill Josh's family right off the bat instead of waiting until close towards the end of the movie?

Brandon York

New this month Question: Wouldn't the tidal wave Imhotep summons come towards the blimp from the front? Since O'Connell is behind him, following the clues left by his son. (01:18:05)

New this month Answer: Imhotep's spell causes the river to overflow and create a gigantic wave. The river is flowing in the direction the blimp is going, so the wave comes from behind the blimp.

New this month Question: How did Hagrid know where The Dursleys, and Harry Potter had moved?

New this month Answer: All underage wizards and witches have a Ministry "trace" on them until they are 17 years old that monitors their activities. Dumbledore would be able to use that to locate Harry and then send Hagrid there.

New this month Question: How did all the colonists get relocated to where the queen is? Do the aliens paralyze them when interacting with them? I can't imagine Hudson going there to be cocooned without struggling.

New this month Answer: In the original script, yes the aliens have a barb at the end of their tails which is used to sting their prey and paralyze them. This was deemed unnecessary, however and the idea was dropped. We are shown an alien grabbing Dietrich and carrying her away and they do indeed just seem to strong-arm their victims and carry them, kicking and screaming the whole way. Bear in mind that a xenomorph is considerably stronger than an average human. It doesn't appear to be any more difficult for them to carry an unwilling human than it would be for a parent carrying a toddler throwing a tantrum.

Could be even more than that, they could concuss their captives or release some sort of odour that causes sleepiness. Could be anything. The captives always wake up cocooned before being impregnated so they are anesthetized at some point. We know the facehuggers anesthetize their victims, so the fully grown xenomorphs must have still have the same chemical compound as well.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Question: Spoiler: It's revealed that the first smaller predator was coming to bring a weapon to the humans to fight back against the bigger Predators. If this was the case, then why was it killing people when it first crash landed? It came across a completely different situation going on with soldiers taking out other humans, and it starts killing them, giving Quinn a chance to fight back and steal it's stuff. But why was it killing people to start with if it was bringing us a weapon to help?

New this month Answer: The Predator had landed in the middle of a group of hostile Earth soldiers, who it judged would likely have just shot it immediately. It would have defended itself. And there's also the fact that it could just be for fun because, hey, old habits die hard.
