Show generally

New this week Question: Why is Ursula in this show portrayed differently to how Phoebe's twin is on Friends? They're meant to be the same character.

Dan23

New this week Answer: The writers have the freedom develop the character to suit the different shows' plots. They wanted to create a certain dynamic between Phoebe and Ursula that was rather contentious and strained because it made for more tension and conflict and showcased the differences that kept the estranged.

New this month Question: If the elders could heal, why didn't they ever come and heal the witches or Leo (and Paige) when they were shot by dark lighters?

New this week Answer: The elders had limited powers. The first time a dark-lighters shown in season one "Love Hurts." It's says that the arrows are tipped with poison meant to kill white-lighters. If the elders could just heal the white-lighters there would be no real point to the dark-lighters.

But when Leo was an elder he healed everyone and white lighters could heal other white lights who were shot by dark lighters. In season 4 Paige healed Leo (with his help). In season 5 Leo healed Sam and then Sam healed Paige and Leo. In season 6 Gideon (who was an elder) healed Leo.

New this month Question: Whose picture did Dodge salute in his cabin when he said "live to fight another day"?

New this month Question: Why was Magic School never brought up before season 6? Did the writers just not come up with the idea until then? The amount of times they used it for refuge you'd think Leo would have mentioned it earlier.

New this month Question: It has already been proven that if you put your finger in a shotgun barrel you will lose your hand. Would you also lose your hand if you put your finger on the barrel of a pistol?

New this month Answer: The barrel can get hot if it is fired quickly. Revolvers allow hot gasses to escape from the front of the cylinder so you should keep your hand way from the gap. But if the barrel is not too hot and you keep your hand away from anything it should not be near, just touching the barrel will not hurt your hand.

New this month Question: Rey is owned by Unkar Plutt before she leaves Jakku with Finn. Does she not have a slave transmitter?

New this month Answer: Nothing in the film indicates she's a slave so much as she's just been left with and works under him. She's more an unwilling laborer than an overt "slave" (so perhaps something like an indentured servant), since it seems she's under the impression she'll be free to leave when her family comes back.

New today Answer: Rey is not a slave. She lives on her own and is able to use weaponry and vehicles. We see that she scavenges parts from the Star Destroyer to sell to Unkarr Plutt for food. She depends on him for food and some measure of security, but doesn't belong to him.

New this month Question: What is in the bottle that Roxie pays for while she's in jail before she does her hair?

New this month Answer: Given that in the next scene, Roxie presents herself with a newly dyed platinum blonde hairstyle, it's a safe bet that the bottle was hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide was the most commonly used hair bleaching agent during the 1920's, when the story of Chicago takes place.

Michael Albert

New this month Question: In Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, George Kennedy isn't listed with the other main characters. Was that by choice?

New this month Answer: He is given what it known as "last billing" (which you see as "and George Kennedy). Nowadays it can also be referred to as "special billing." This is typically done for more famous actors who are playing a smaller role, or in this case a non-titular character. It was done on purpose and most likely as part of his agent's negotiation with the film studio.
