Question: Why would Kyle assume that her daughter was hidden inside the casket? Only she knew the code.

Answer: Because after searching the entire plane for her daughter without finding her, it was the last place left she hadn't looked in. It was a desperate, last-ditch attempt to try anything to find her. By now, Kyle may have been suspecting that her daughter's disappearance was something more than a missing child on a plane.

Hell Week - S3-E9

Question: How did Geoffrey cheat in the barricade contest?

Answer: Late one night, Geoffrey used a covert listening device to overhear David explaining his barricade device to Janet which is how he figured it out.

How do we know Geoffrey really did use a covert listening device? They didn't mention him using one.

Question: Did Katniss mean to kill Coin or was it just an accident?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Katniss killed Coin on purpose. Katniss realised that not only was Coin responsible for the Capitol bombing and Prim's death, but that nothing was going to change with Coin in charge. Coin would use all the same power and tactics that Snow used to stay in power. Plus Coin proposed a "final" Hunger Games with the Capitol's children, even after saying there would be no more Hunger Games. Katniss knew (or at least assumed) that Coin would continue using the Hunger Games to maintain her order, which is what had been happening for the last 75 years.

Question: I don't get why Peeta joined Katniss and the others when they were shooting the propo before Boggs died. Or how he was able to convince the doctors in the hospital to let him go. Can someone please explain that?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: President Coin ordered Peeta to join Katniss' team with the hopes that he would succeed in killing Katniss. Coin felt Katniss was a threat.

Question: Was it really Coin who killed Prim or was Snow lying?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Coin was ultimately responsible. Coin sent Prim to the Capitol and then had the Capitol bombed. The rebels, led by Coin, used hovercrafts with the Capitol insignia on it to drop the bombs so that the public thought it was the Capitol bombing their children. Coin wanted Katniss to blame Snow for Prim's death to get her full support.

New Ground - S3-E19

Question: Why does the guy who was interrogating SG 1 think they know how the dead man they found was killed? Why does he think they're lying? Why doesn't SG 1 tell their interrogator that they weren't there when the man was killed?

Question: When Harry and Lupin are talking about Harry's boggart that turned into a dementor, Lupin says that he thought the boggart was going to transform into Voldemort. If that had been so, would Harry have had a clear image of what Voldemort may have looked like? He probably wouldn't have imagined Voldemort as Tom Riddle from the diary in CoS because Voldemort's more human form isn't fearful and even in The Philosopher's Stone Voldemort's face isn't fully formed as it eventually is in GoF.

Answer: There is no way of knowing how Harry would have imagined how Voldemort looked. However, since Voldemort was an infamous figure, Harry could have, at some point, seen photos or portraits of him in books, old news articles, or other sources.

Question: How is it that they have to be at the mailbox to receive their letters, but that one night she writes to him to call her right then and there as if they are reading each other's minds as they write on paper?

Question: When the ark is about to be opened by Belloq and the Nazis, Belloq is wearing possibly a priest style outfit and has a gold staff. Does it explain where he got that from? Was it while digging up the city? Personal collection?

Answer: It was never explained where Belloq acquired the outfit, but as he knew the history of the arc and he was actively searching for it to use its power, he must have intended for some time to wear that clothing for the ritual. Whether or not he knew it was needed or his wearing it was just for egotistical theatrics is a matter of speculation.

raywest

Answer: Belloq was working closely with the Nazis who were, of course, already persecuting Jews and confiscating Jewish property on a grand scale back in Germany. As chief archaeologist of the Nazi antiquities acquisition project, Belloq could make any request for necessary equipment (or attire), and the Third Reich would quickly supply it. Belloq anticipated that the ceremonial Jewish high priest costume would be necessary for handling the Ark, and he requested a replica costume in advance. As it happened, merely looking like a Jewish high priest wasn't enough to protect him (or anyone else).

Question: How does the story start?

Question: Why would Tony be supportive of the SRA? In the first movie he revealed himself as Iron Man. In turn, he was attacked at the speedway by Vanko and almost got Happy and Pepper killed in the second movie. In the third movie, Happy is in a coma in the hospital, his Malibu home was leveled and Pepper was captured and injected with Extremis. Shouldn't this have opened Tony's eyes that by exposing his identity to the public, that he's now put himself and his friends in danger 24/7?

Answer: In the film, what is being proposed is the "Sokovia Accords", which would regulate the Avengers, but wasn't a registration act. Tony supports this because he feels responsible for creating Ultron and does think he (and the others) need to be regulated. In the comics, Tony supports the Superhuman Registration Act (SRA) because he foresees the possibility that an unregistered superhuman will cause so much destruction that the government will come down even harder on all superhumans, such as imprisonment or execution, rather than simply registering them. Tony is hoping that by showing support of the SRA, they can work with the government to moderate the act so that the community isn't harmed by it and that it will have a minimal negative effect, and to make sure everyone's secret identities are not revealed to the public.

Question: What is the name of the actor and character of the agent that Hobbs is talking to during the soccer game? Is he the actor that plays the head peacekeeper in Catching Fire?

Answer: The character is listed in the credits as "DS Allan." He is played by Patrick St. Espirit who also played Commander Thread in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Question: Is it true Jimmy Harrell was taking a shower as the disaster began?

Question: During the heist at the post office, Baby shakes his head at a woman who in turn grabs a cop. When the lady was walking up, she smiled and waved like she knew him. However at the end during her testimony, it seems like she didn't know him after all. If that's the case, why did she smile and wave at him? Did I miss something?

lartaker1975

Answer: The woman works at the Post Office and was the one who served Baby and Sam the day before. He's shaking his head at her because he doesn't want her to go in the building and get hurt/ killed in the heist that's happening at that time. She doesn't know him in a personal way like Joseph or Debora.

Question: How come Hermione and Harry are confused when Dumbledore lies about not knowing they were rescuing Sirius? Hermione at least should know.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: I don't recall either Harry or Hermione acting confused and Dumbledore never lied to them about knowing they rescued Sirius. He would never directly acknowledge it to them, however, because he could more truthfully tell investigators that he knew nothing about Sirius' escape. It's called "plausible deniability." The less detail he knows about how they accomplished their goal, the less he can be questioned about it.

Question: In a video on youtube called the Hunger Games deleted scenes never before seen part 2, Katniss mentions Prim to Rue and then Rue asks "is she the one who..." but can someone tell me what she was saying before Katniss interrupts her? Also why does Katniss interrupt her so rudely? Finally Katniss mentions something that her and Prim used to do together but what did she say?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Rue is asking if Prim is the sister that Katniss volunteered to be a tribute for. Katniss interrupts her because she's rather emotional about having had to risk her life to save her sister. Katniss tells Rue that she and Prim would sing a song together, the one that Katniss later sings over Rue's body.

Question: When Merlin stepped on the land mine, why didn't he just wait there until Eggsy and Harry completed the mission? Surely he could have just stood there, then later on they could have called in bomb experts or use Statesman resources to get him off that thing? Eggsy and Harry could have easily taken out those 5 guards.

Answer: At the time, these people only had a really short time to save the world. Merlin thought that, with the landmine, he could sacrifice himself along with many guards to save the world.

Question: Why do authorities think Vidrine was not the true villain on deep water horizon? He is the one who brushed off safety concerns, and ordered a second negative pressure test. And according to the investigators, an employee who perished in the disaster was responsible for the bladder effect hypothesis not Vidrine. Even if it was true, how would it make him the villain? They are treating who the true villain was like it has to do with who was responsible for the bladder effect hypothesis, and not for brushing off safety concerns, and ordering the second pressure test. Plus it could still have been Vidrine's fault, given that also say the cause of the explosion was years of small mistakes, those mistakes could have been Vidrine's mistakes along with his decision to order a second pressure test instead asking the employees what they wanted to do, Especially since they knew the rig, and he didn't.

Answer: Films often take some artistic licensing in portraying the characters and they may have been some misunderstanding in whom the film was trying to say was at fault. In real life, Transocean and BP were charged with multiple counts of manslaughter and other crimes. In agreeing to plead guilty, Transocean Deepwater admitted members of its crew on board Deepwater Horizon, acting at the direction of BP's well-site leaders, were negligent in failing to fully investigate that the Macondo well was secure and that oil and gas were not flowing into the well. BP admitted the two highest ranked well-site leaders were negligent. Those two well-site leaders were Robert Kaluza (portrayed in the film by Brad Leland) and Donald Vidrine. Kaluza and Vidrine observed clear indication that the well was not secure and oil and gas were flowing into the well and did not take the obvious and appropriate steps to prevent the blowout. Both Kaluza and Vidrine were charged with 11 counts of manslaughter and prosecutors said they botched the pressure test that would have warned the crews to stop. When Vidrine agreed to plead guilty to pollution charges and testify against Kaluza, prosecutors dropped his manslaughter charges. Kaluza went to jury trial (although was found not guilty.) It seems likely too many factors played a role in leading up to the blowout that was a result of BP trying to save money and time over safety concerns and more than 2 supervisors were ultimately responsible.
