Question: Why did Harry and Hermione fear the werewolf if they knew that Hermione would save them?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: They didn't know. Hermione's call distracted the werewolf when they first saw him, true enough, but that was before they had time jumped, so the Harry and Hermione that were scared of the werewolf were unaware that their future selves were around to save them.

Question: While Dutch was crawling up onto the mud, and then up into that brush pile, it looked as if he was missing the huge knife that had been on his left thigh, yet later he was using the knife. Did I just miss it?

The Fisher King: Part 1 - S1-E22

Question: How did the "Fisher King" know Elle was going to be home? Hotchner sent her home and she was home a very short time before he appeared and shot her.

swamphawk

Chosen answer: After framing her for the killing at the hotel her and Morgan were staying in he must have known that she would not rest until the quest was over because it was a personal insult to her. He could have known her attitude while studying her as he did the rest of the team. His studies would also show him that Aaron would send her home to rest because he needed her mind fresh. He puts what he knows of the two team mates from studying them and comes to the assumption she was going to be sent home to rest.

Question: When Fred and George were in possession of the Marauders Map, before giving it to Harry, how come they never wondered why Ron was always hanging around with a person called Peter Pettigrew? He shows up on the Map even whilst disguised as Scabbers, as we know from when Harry spots him.

JBrock

Chosen answer: Fred and George used the map to aid them in their mischievous activities at Hogwarts, and probably had little interest in what their little brother was doing or who he might be with at any given time.

Question: WWhen the boggart changes into something in the classroom scene, can everybody see it then? Are all people seeing the same, or do they see the object that frightens them the most?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: The all see it the same; it turns into the thing that most frightens whoever has the boggart's attention at the time.

Phixius

Question: At the end where Caroline makes a circle around herself that she can't leave, how come at the ending she just nicely steps over the circle without trouble?

sunfox35

Chosen answer: It's because, at that point, she is Mama Cecile in Caroline's body. Had it still been Caroline, she wouldn't have been able to step over the line. Or, so the spell says.

Question: Why do Rose, Cal, and Ruth seem to get special treatment concerning being able to interact with Ismay and Andrews by dining with them and getting a special tour of the ship. Even though Ismay was really treated like a passenger, he obviously had an important role as being the one who came up with the idea for Titanic and Andrews, of course, took part in building the ship. The trio have a brief interaction with Captain Smith as well.

Chosen answer: In the movie it is mentioned that the ship was built using Hockley steel. Cal's father was a steel tycoon, therefore got special privileges as in a way his family helped build the ship.

Question: At the end when Dobby is stabbed, Harry says he wants Hermione to get something from her bag and she doesn't do anything. Why would she not get anything from her bag. It's unlikely she wouldn't have her bag since she had it at the beginning of Part 2?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: Because she knows that she hasn't got anything in there that'll do any good. Harry's clutching at straws, begging her to pull out something that'll fix Dobby and save his life. She hasn't got anything that'll work, so she doesn't do it.

Question: At the very end where Lou is visited by the cops and Joyce, couldn't one of them smell the gasoline everywhere? Lou drenched the entire house before they arrived.

Question: In the wedding scene, why is Carolina wearing two different types of shoes? One is white the other is badge and strapped another way.

sunfox35

Chosen answer: The wedding takes place almost immediately after they escaped from General Marquez. She did not grab a matching pair.

MasterOfAll

Question: When Barbossa was explaining to Jack how the Pearl was taken and not lost. What does Barbossa mean when he says the sea beneath the Pearl began to roil?

Lueroi

Chosen answer: The sea got very choppy and wavy directly beneath the Black Pearl.

Phixius

Question: If Albert Wesker is the leader of Umbrella, why he cant stop Jill Valentine from coming after Alice?

sunfox35

Chosen answer: It's stated in the film that Wesker had departed Umbrella and that the red queen has control now.

Anastasios Anastasatos

Question: Does the majority of this movie takes place in 2012, meaning that Mavis was born in 1894?

Chosen answer: Yes.

Question: If the children's souls were transferred into the servants and saw they were about to be hanged, why didn't one of them simply say something 'ike "Mom, Dad its me. Please don't do this!"

sunfox35

Chosen answer: They most assuredly did, but the adults were in a drunken frenzy were not inclined to take the time to listen to the unbelievable tale these two objects of extreme racism were trying to tell.

Phixius

Question: What exactly was happening when Harry casted red sparks with his wand in the maze? All things just seemed to get more aggressive. Did Dumbledore say to Harry that he can use red sparks if he want to give up?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: In the book, the finalists were told to shoot off sparks out of their wands if they got lost or got into trouble in the maze - sort of a distress flare. As to why things get nasty at that moment, most likely it's because Mad Eye has rigged the maze to make sure that Harry wins and touches the cup first, which wouldn't happen if Harry had to give up.

roboc

Answer: Harry was not giving up. Harry saw that Fleur needed help, and cast red sparks to bring attention to her.

Question: Does the villa of Tony Stark actually exist?

Chosen answer: No, it's digitally added to a rocky outcrop just outside Malibu in California.
