Question: Libria does have technology and computer abilities. This is evident with the screens showing Father, the vehicles, and the TV station in a later scene. But when Preston was asking about the book that he thought Partridge had archived, the man behind the desk has a gigantic book to have to flip through to find it. If they do have and use technology, why would they use a book for archiving items like that when a computer would make it SO much easier?

Chosen answer: Because the information is very important to them, they could have decided against having it all on a computer system which could theoretically break down in the event of a power cut/surge or hacker sabotage, while a book cannot lose information unless physically destroyed.

Hush - S4-E10

Question: Why did the gentlemen need to collect six hearts?

Chosen answer: The hearts are required in order to keep the Gentlemen alive. Precisely how, whether they eat them, or they're used in some sort of ritual, is unspecified.

Question: Given that the Kryptonian ship was 20,000 years old, how did it have a suit ready made for Clark? Especially given it's not in standard Kryptonian/House of El colors.

Teru_Kage

Chosen answer: Considering the ship was still working, with active security, and was key to Zod's plan, we can safely assume that the suit was created under the instruction of Jor-El, who was placed in the system by Clark.

MasterOfAll

Question: At about 37:14 in the movie, while Shrek and Fiona are running through the castle, there appears to be a giant book in the background that seems very out of place. Can anyone explain what it is doing there? I don't have high enough resolution to read any of the text.

Chosen answer: It's a cookbook - the book is open to a chapter reading "Knightly Treats" and has a list of ingredients (for the nearby stew pot) and cooking instructions underneath that. The other page shows a drawing of a knight and where to cut him up, with the phrase at the bottom reading "Choice Cuts".

Question: Was the neck snapping scene an homage to the comics? In order to save Superman from mind control, Wonder Woman killed a villain by snapping his neck, much to the anguish of Superman. Did the writers of MOS create this similar situation to parallel that comic book scene?

Teru_Kage

Chosen answer: Nothing, as of yet, has come from the writers acknowledging the similarity. Coincidence at best.

MasterOfAll

Answer: Superman snapped Zod's neck and killed him along with the other 2 kryptonian villains way back in Superman vol.2 # 22 October 1988.

Question: This question is a plot hole question pertaining mostly to the films and slightly to the books, and wondering whether or not what I think is a plot hole really is. At the end of this film Bella tells Jacob that she loves him. In the book this didn't happen. Then in Eclipse (both the film and book) Jacob spends the whole time trying to convince Bella that she loves him. In this film Bella also tells Jacob that although she loves him, she will still choose Edward over him, and in Eclipse (the film) she basically repeats that statement by saying that her feelings for Jacob don't change, that she loves Edward more and will marry him. I am aware there two different directors for New Moon and Eclipse so could that be the reason for my confusion?

Chosen answer: The change in directors makes no difference as the plot is based off the book. Bella loves Jacob but she feels that she cannot survive without Edward, and therefore loves him more.

Question: I have this on DVD, but I'm sure a scene was cut out, on the video was there a scene where Archie was standing there naked and the family walk in, and Wanda comes down, kisses him, and leaves?

Chosen answer: Haven't ever seen a deleted scene of this. It's more likely that Wanda slipped out an upstairs door or window.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: How come Kim didn't own up about the burglary? if she really cared for him she would have told them the truth.

Chosen answer: Probably because she was afraid of getting herself and all her friends in trouble with her. Her boyfriend is unpredictable and violent, she could easily be afraid of him.

Question: Is it me, or is Carrie's mother smiling when she gets stabbed multiple times by Carrie?

Chosen answer: My feeling is that being so fundamentally religious that she was almost orgasmic to finally die, and meet God as she believed.

Question: Jonathan Kent dies of a heart attack. So why does he look at his arm in shock before he collapses? What does that tell him?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Massive heart attacks are often preceded by pain in the left arm before it is felt elsewhere. The aorta, the main artery leading away from the heart runs down the left arm. There can also be pain in the right arm, but the left one is more common.

Show generally

Question: Do the actors perform their own stunts on this show? If not, they did a great job of casting look-alikes.

Chosen answer: It depends. If you watch the action scenes in slow motion, you can often tell if it's the actor or a stunt double. Leo Howard seems to do a lot of his own fight scenes and acrobatics while many of the fights and flips by other characters are done by doubles; although occasionally Olivia Holt will perform a simple flip or fight.

Question: What does "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" mean?

ostov2

Chosen answer: This is a very old expression meaning that if someone, anyone, does nothing but work all the time and never takes time for recreation or relaxation, they will become a dull, uninspired person. Jack, the main character, is twisting the expression in a malevolent way as his mind and body are being taken over by evil ghosts. It's origin was from typing classes, used as a sample phrase for children to articulate movement across the keyboard.

Question: While talking to Xavier, Viktor and his girl reference a movie that they hold the box of. You never see what it is or hear them say it. She says 'I never understood why he let the King live in the end.' What movie are they talking about?

Quantom X

Question: When Alex walks by the guys, Mace yells out 'Porn horn!' Is there any significance to him saying that in regards to the case or anything? Or is it just dementia babble?

Question: When Hydell takes Hock's gun and the shooting starts, what causes the explosion?

xx:xx:xx

Quantom X

Chosen answer: They are in a space station prison. Most likely the bullet from the gun hit an oxygen tank or line and caused a spark. Pure oxygen is highly explosive.

Quantom X

Question: After Talia orders Foley and the other cops to be gunned down, Foley's body is shown and he doesn't appear to have any bullet holes in him. Even with his black uniform you can see that his clothes don't have tears. Although it's possible that he was shot in the back, wouldn't the type of guns that are on the Tumblers be powerful enough to cause exit wounds?

Serious B

Chosen answer: Almost certainly, yes, in fact, if the weapons demonstrated by the original Tumbler give any guide, his body would likely be severely damaged if not torn apart completely. However, as we don't actually see the precise circumstances of his shooting, we can't say that he was hit by one of the Tumbler's guns; given the intact state of his body, it seems far more likely that he was gunned down using a smaller weapon carried by one of Talia's remaining henchmen.

Tailkinker

Question: Was the child with the sack over his head, who attacked the mother and locked her in the bathroom, Simon or one of the children (ghosts)?

Chosen answer: It was Simon. He had found the mask in Thomas' little house and attacked her while wearing it because he was angry she had fought with him. We know it is him as the boy in the mask is wearing Simon's shoes, and later on when Simon is found he is wearing the mask.

Question: When the sharp shooter said to Ramirez, "That's my boy", was that meant to imply that Ramirez is actually his son?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: No, this is explained when O'Mara recruits Kennard. Kennard says that nobody would work with Ramirez because of his Latino heritage, so Kennard took him under his wing. And while he did that, he also taught Ramirez to shoot just as good he can, because before that, Ramirez was a lousy shot.

Question: When Ezekial attacked the Howard rocket and he beat Iron Man down, why didn't he just kiill Iron Man then? Besides obviously that ending the movie right there.
