Question: At the climax of the movie when Malcolm talks to his wife while she was sleeping, a ring from her has fallen down to the floor, what does it mean? Is his wife married to another man?

Answer: It's his own wedding ring. He recognizes it and sees she is still wearing hers and he isn't wearing his own, so at that point he realises he is dead.

Answer: The ring was Malcolm's - she kept it after he died. When it falls Malcolm realises that he hasn't been wearing it even though he sees it on his hand.

Question: Instead of trying to murder them, why didn't the Lizzies simply contact the Riffs and tell them they had 3 of the warriors and to come get them? They had plenty of time.

Gavin Jackson

Answer: The Riffs had put out a hit on the Warriors via the radio DJ, meaning that it didn't matter if the Warriors were taken alive or not; the Lizzies probably figured it would be easier simply to kill the Warriors and collect the reward.

Question: Had John Doe not been killed by Mills, what charges would he be facing exactly?

EK8829

Answer: At the very least, six counts of first degree/premeditated murder (the five sin victims, plus Tracy); six counts of assault and battery; three counts of home invasion; and two counts of kidnapping (Gluttony and Sloth). His lawyer says that he planned to plead insanity, but this could not realistically have been defended, at the very least because (as Somerset points out) his threat to do so would be admissible evidence.

Question: How did getting shot knock Jason unconscious? Second, how did getting shot cause him to lose his memory?

Answer: Any significant shock could cause a person to lose consciousness. The amnesia was probably a combination of the shock of being shot, half-drowning, and the fact that Conklin had the Treadstone agents "wound so tight, one of them was bound to snap."

Question: Rogue asked if Logan promised to take care of her if she came back to the institute, so why was she still on the train since he said he promised?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: The train had just started moving, so perhaps they just decided to wait for the first scheduled stop to get off.

Question: Why were they all staring at Phil because he asked the man to cuff Phil to him? Also why did Cylia and Cyril not seem so angry at Phil?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: Why does Phil so desperately want the farm?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: Why would Phil even gamble away the farm to Mrs Biggles in the first place? If he didn't neither him or Isabel and her kids would have gotten in that awful mess in the first place?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: What kind of chocolate was it that Hogarth poured on Mansley's ice cream?

Answer: It was a laxative to make him go to the bathroom.

Question: Joy doesn't let Sadness use the console, so why doesn't she mind when Fear, Anger, or Disgust do the same?

Answer: Joy is very controlling of everyone when it comes to using the console. We only see Fear, Anger, and Disgust use it briefly, even when Joy is gone.

Doomworld - S2-E16

Question: When Mayor Damien Darhk puts up the mask in his collections, who do the other masks individually belong to? I recognize Flash and maybe Diggle and Green Arrow.

Bishop73

Answer: Black Canary, Spartan, Wild Dog, and Ragman.

Fonzie's a Thespian - S7-E7

Question: How could the play "The Rainmaker" still be performed after Fonzie scared off the director?

Answer: If all the actors and hands know their roles well enough they could perform the play reasonably well even without a director.

Show Ghouls - S7-E15

Question: If they already vanquished Sargon in "Soul Survivor" and burned all the contracts, shouldn't the deal between him and Count Roget have been broken too?

Answer: Yes.

Question: What exactly was the enormous creature that came out of the ground and attacked Flash in the forest?

Question: How does Magneto know that Stryker was the one who gave Wolverine his adamantium?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: When Mystic broke into Stryker's offices, by changes into Lady Deathstryke, she got into his computer files. There were decades of top secret and covert op files. Besides, Magneto himself had decades to gather intelligence on any government officials, who were against mutants.

Question: How come Charles called Logan a disappointment?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Even with Charles' help, Logan was never able to completely put his violent past behind him and integrate into society at large. Xavier always taught his students to view mutant powers as a gift. Logan always viewed his powers as a curse.

Show generally

Question: I've only seen a few episodes so some info would be helpful. After running very fast and for a long period of time, why does the Flash suddenly become very weak?

Answer: The Flash burns energy the same way a normal human does, just at an extremely high tolerance. His metabolism is incredibly high and he must constantly eat to maintain his energy levels. If he runs at high speed for a long period of time he will burn his stored energy and become very weak.

Question: When Sadness creates her sad core memory of Riley, why does it roll its way to the core memory chamber instead of appear on the shelf?

Answer: Answered your own question: it is a core memory. Same reason the joint memory between Joy and Sadness at the end of the movie does the same.

Question: After the blonde lady jumps into the hole to escape the cube when it turns 6:06:59, this is where I start to get confused. Right after she jumps into the opening, the camera zooms out to show the whole maze itself, which was moving in a wave-like motion...why was it doing that? Was that how the cubes moved? All it showed was the whole maze moving, opening and closing on itself in a shape-shifting, wave-like motion. How did the rooms move like that? That seems a little impossible to construct. And plus the background was just black, like the maze was built in space or something. And lastly, how did she end up lying in water at the end?

New this month Answer: The place she is in is not our universe as we know it. As referenced in the movie, it may have been the 4th dimension, where everything exists at the same time. That wave-like movement of the maze might have been a representation of that. That's why when people opened the doors in the hypercube some things happened instantaneously. The hypercube didn't move, it was there already. Pretty difficult to explain without already being familiar with the concept of upper dimensions. That 'water' may have been the portal to that 4th dimension.

Question: Despite Dr. Mark Powell's certainty that "Prot" is a delusional man named Robert Porter who lost his mind and attempted suicide years earlier, no explanation is ever given for Prot's extraordinary resistance to powerful psychiatric drugs, his superhuman vision (into the Ultraviolet range), and his knowledge of deep-space astrophysics, which not only rivals but exceeds the knowledge of Earthly astrophysicists. Prot's enigmatic abilities are tested by experts, and the experts are left scratching their heads. The probability that Prot actually is an alien entity occupying a deeply-damaged and "discarded" human body seems confirmed on many levels, above and beyond the rantings of a mere mental patient. So, why does Dr. Powell consistently reject the hard evidence before his eyes?

Charles Austin Miller

Answer: He rejects it for two main reasons. First, each of the items you mention have possible, even if unlikely, explanations. Some people have strange or no reaction to certain drugs (for example I have almost no response to any painkillers). People who have had their corneas replaced with artificial lens can see near ultraviolet (though nowhere near 300-400 angstroms). The sheriff described Porter as being very bright, and he was in to astronomy, so while a great stretch, not impossible he somehow formulated the information he presented. The second reason, building upon these, is Occam's razor. As a person in the sciences, Dr. Powell is driven to believe things have a reasonable explanation, even if we don't currently know what it is, and thinking Prot is just a bright and unusual human is a more reasonable belief to him than believing Prot is an alien possessing a human's body.

jimba

Just remarking, there's no comparison of painkillers and psychiatric drugs. Thorazine and Haloperidol (Haldol) are both powerful anti-psychotic drugs with numerous side effects. Prot is immune to Thorazine and Haloperidol (as well as alcohol), which is more than extraordinary, it's otherworldly.
