Answer: Logan and Jean have a history- Logan specifically loves Jean and expressed his affections towards her in the past, and Jean feels some love towards him but can't act on it because of her relationship with Scott. As Rogue and Logan are also very close, it seems to be subtly implied that she might be a hint jealous of Logan's affections to Jean. Also, Rogue might feel a tab-bit awkward by their conversation given the circumstances.

Answer: Jean and Logan's romantic affection for one another is a poorly kept secret between the two and is awkward to witness for their friends.

It Takes a Village - S7-E1

Question: I'm a bit confused by the end to the whole 'Ian Doyle saga'. Namely I'm confused by Chloe Donaghy's motives. I get that she wanted to sell Declan to an enemy of Doyle for money and flee the country, but why did she stay with Lachlan McDermott? Why did they get on the plane together instead of going there separate ways? Did she want to see Doyle suffer at the hands of McDermott? And why did McDermott want to flee the country if he wanted to hurt Doyle? Did he not know Doyle was in federal custody?

Lauren - S6-E18

Question: Why did Prentiss sleep with Doyle? Was it for the profile? Because Morgan didn't seem convinced that it would've been much help for the profile.

Answer: She tried to role play as Lauren when she was very uncomfortable with it.

Chosen answer: Harry wasn't annoyed because Marv stole from Santa Claus, he was annoyed that Marv was thinking "small", stealing coins that would help them live day-to-day while Harry wanted to plan really big heists that would set them for life.

Chosen answer: She could have been looking at Remus and Pettigrew, who exited from the tunnel behind her, Ron, Harry, and Sirius. She probably also heard Snape making his way through the tunnel shortly after that. He was the last to exit from the Shrieking Shack after being knocked out by Harry's spell.

Question: Why does Joy want Riley to be happy so much, rather than angry or sad when she has to be? Riley can't be happy all the time.

Answer: All of the emotions want to be in control. Joy will always fight for Riley to experience joy.

Chosen answer: Dubbed.

Chosen answer: It's not mentioned exactly, but it's implied to do with his weight and drinking.

Greg Dwyer

Chosen answer: It's probably nothing personal, but with the combination of his IQ and his superiority complex, along with the fact that they study in the same field, Sheldon just feels that Kripke is beneath him as a scientist.

Chosen answer: He is a Sith master, just as powerful as a Jedi, he concealed himself. By controlling his emotions and suppressing them, until he achieved his goal of ultimate power.

Chosen answer: He needed Anakin totally on his side before ordering the assassination of the Jedi order. If Anakin wasn't fully committed he might refuse to join him after executing order 66.

Question: Did Darth Tyranus know that Sidious was going to betray him?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: Nope, you can see the surprise on his face when Palpatine orders Anakin to kill him. He then realises Anakin is Sidious' new apprentice. He fully expected to defeat Anakin.

I read that Palpatine/Sidious had given Dooku/Tyrannus a fake plan: Tyrannus thought they would kill Obi-wan, then convince Anakin to join the two of them.

I think that is partially right. Though I would sooner think the plan was to incapacitate Obi-Wan, which Dooku did and then focus on Anakin to get him to the dark side. Dooku had a chance to kill Obi-Wan but didn't. Besides, if Dooku did kill Obi-Wan it is almost sure Anakin will kill Dooku for it.

Question: What is the whole conversation in the first French class between Chris' friend, the teacher and Sarah?

Answer: Translation on the board: "if you would have done your homework, you would understand" Teacher: "I hope you had a good weekend" " (Calls to the students name) Your weekend went good?" Student: "Very good" Teacher: "What did you do during the weekend? Did you go to the beach, or did you find a elegant woman?" "Search for a woman?" Student: "oh did you mean did I get laid" (now you see why he says that) Teacher: "In french, in french! (says students name) " Student: "a lot of... a lot of lay" Girl (sorry I forgot her name): "What a idiot, moron" Teacher: "Well, our new student m'am your french is very good!" (Conversation goes on in English) Teacher: (says what the board says) "if you would have done your homework, you would understand" By the way what they're learning in this French class is L'imparfait tense.

Question: The scene where Angier and Cutter capture Fallon is the one scene in the movie I still don't understand. Why does Borden decide to walk after the show, why does Fallon follow Angier, and how did Angier know that Fallon was going to follow him in the back alley so that they could trap him?

Answer: Borden decided to walk simply because he felt like it; Fallon noticed Angier start to follow him (Borden), and was worried he might do something (remember, earlier Angier shot Borden's fingers off), and so tailed him; Angier knew that Fallon and Borden were inseparable, and that Fallon would follow him, and so broke off from Borden and trusted that Fallon's curiosity would lead him to fall into the trap.

Question: Near the end of Die Hard, who is the terrorist carrying the bonds that Bruce knocks out? What happens to him? He obviously isn't dead from a punch. Just is out cold and on the floor as Bruce shoots Hans and the other terrorist.

Answer: There were a few terrorist survivors. Kristof the guy carrying the bonds, and also Theo, who Argyle knocked out, would be arrested and eventually sentenced to prison.

Question: What do you reckon Rose would have done had the Titanic not sunk? Since they wouldn't have had to go back to her stateroom due to the seriousness of the collision, Jack may not have been arrested, so do you reckon Cal would make sure she was in sight of him, Lovejoy or Ruth at all times and then force her into the arranged marriage or do you think she would've found a way to be with Jack?

Answer: 1. The fact that Jack and Rose appear together as a couple to inform her mother and Cal about the impending danger of the shipwreck, shows that they were ready to disclose their relationship to the world, without worrying about others. 2. ‚ÄéRose tells Jack that she will stay with him in New York when the ship docks. So if they made it all the way to New York, there are possibilities that the two lovers outwit Cal and his prying men, and could've eloped and got married. Note: Cal couldn't have sued Jack of kidnapping Rose, because she would testify against Cal and Jack would be proved innocent:-).

Answer: There is no reasonable way that Rose and Jack could have remained together if they'd all made it to New York safely. Rose had too many eyes on her, and her marriage to Cal had already been arranged, so she could not have gotten out of it. It would have been a fairly easy matter for Cal to keep Rose under essentially house arrest until they were wed.

Chosen answer: Yes, the Sith Rule of Two requires that the master kill the apprentice and claim a new one, or the apprentice kill the master and become master himself.

Then why didn't Vader do anything about it?

DFirst1

He quite famously threw the Emperor down a shaft. :-) Presumably he was still benefiting from the relationship. The Emperor knows how it goes too - they would have stayed in partnership until the deciding moment came, both thinking they'd be the one to triumph, but ultimately one of them would be wrong.

I mean prior when Palpatine is torturing Luke.

DFirst1

While Anakin without the suit could have been more powerful than the Emperor, as Darth Vader, he is definitely not more powerful and would easily be defeated if he attempted anything. The Emperor's force lightning would damage his suit easily.

Do you mean during the timeline in the Original trilogy that Darth Vader knows that his master is going to replace him? Just like what happened to Dooku, whom Anakin killed in front of Sidious.

DFirst1

The rule of two is a Sith philosophy, so yes he knew. According to the rule the master will always be seeking a stronger apprentice, while the apprentice will seek to become the master.

Answer: The reason why Vader didn't do anything is a character decision. Likely Palpatine being a master of manipulation beat into Vader's head that Vader need him in order to function as a leader.
