Paradox - S3-E2

Question: When Flash created an alternate timeline in the previous episode (S3-E1) he started to forget things. He once again created another alternate timeline in this episode (S3-E2), why doesn't he start to forget things again?

Chosen answer: Barry didn't create another alternate timeline, he just restored his original one, however Jay intercepts him when he (Barry) tries to fix it again. He explains that no matter what he does, the timeline will not be exactly the same. Small "time fractures" will still remain. Barry will not forget because he is in his original timeline.

Question: We never see Scott finding out the fact that Logan used his car, stuck his adamantium claws in the steering wheel, and left it at Bobby Drake's house in Boston. How did this likely play out?

Chosen answer: Considering the circumstances Scott would most certainly overlook the loss of his car. The love of his life has just been killed. Even if he didn't overlook it, Logan only took the car because of an emergency. Nothing that happens to the car is remotely Logan's fault.

Question: Just before Harry casts expelliarmus on Snape, why did Ron grab Hermione's sleeve?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He was just pulling her out of the way to what he thought was a safer spot and out of the line of fire from Snape's wand.

The Table Polarization - S7-E16

Question: What is the joke about when they make fun of the way Raj says mustache?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Given Raj's accent, he pronounces the word moustache differently from how the others would. They simply find his pronunciation of the word moustache amusing.

Question: How did they attack in the morning and fight a 2 hour battle and dig in for the night?

Brian McKa

Question: Why did Kyle Pratt kill Carson, instead of sparing his life, running to either the cargo door or passenger door, showing the people her daughter, telling them he was the hijacker? He appears to have injured his leg after he fell down in the restroom, He was further away from both of the doors than Kyle, And she probably would gotten to one of them before him, because he wouldn't have been able to move fast enough to get to either of the doors before her. And then he would have gotten arrested, because then the people would have realised that he had deceived them. And his charismatic and manipulative skills would no longer have helped him.

New this month Answer: Because even if she had managed to convince people he was the hijacker, and get him arrested, there would have been risks that he would escape from jail, and try to get revenge on her for ruining his plan.

Question: How did Exley know about Leow and Reynolds when speaking to Leow?

Chosen answer: Vincennes, most likely. The condition under which Jack gives his help to Exley in solving the Nite Owl case is Exley's help in solving Reynolds' murder, so Jack must have filled him in on the case details.

Question: At the end Dumbledore says that Harry's power of love allowed him to escape from Voldemort 4 times but is it not 5 times? when he was a baby, in book 1, book 2, book 4 and this book.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: In book 2 it wasn't love that allowed him to escape.

Question: Why did Remus agree to make Harry his son's godfather? Teddy would nowhere near be safe as long as Voldemort is hunting Harry.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Remus knew that if he and Tonks were killed, Harry, as godfather, was someone who understood what it was like to have grown up as an orphan. Assuming Harry lived, he was the best person to mentor young Teddy. Teddy was raised by Tonk's mother, Andromeda, but, as godfather, Harry played a significant role in Teddy's life.

Question: Exactly what made Remus go back to Tonks?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She knew he loved her, but he felt he was too old for her. She convinced him that the age difference didn't matter to her. She loved him as well.

Question: Doc gets Marty back home. Then seconds later Marty appears again. He shows Doc the letter he wrote. So Marty goes back to 1885 to save him. They make a big deal of having to repair the DeLorean that was buried in the cave. But why can't they use the DeLorean that Marty just used to get back to 1955?

Chosen answer: Because Marty didn't "just" arrive, he was already there, having come back from the alternate 1985 with Doc in the previous film. The DeLorean they used to get to 1955 is the one that is struck by lightning while Marty's on the ground, and sent Doc to 1885. He cannot repair it with the resources available in 1885, so he hides it in the cave with instructions that his 1955 self will use to fix it.

Question: Even though Anna lost her memories of Elsa's ice making powers, how did she remember Olaf after she meets him?

Chosen answer: She remembers that her and Elsa built a snowman as children and named him Olaf. She doesn't remember that Elsa used magic to make the snow. In her mind it was just a memory of two sisters building an ordinary snowman and pretending he was alive.

Question: When Bond gets trapped underwater, could it be possible for him to survive using the air in the tyres?

Darth Crucible

Question: How did Manny know the humans would go to glacier pass?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Because they have a settlement on the other side.

Greg Dwyer

Question: Did Manny think if they cleaned the baby's diaper he would stop crying? What difference would that make?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Manny is a Mammoth, he doesn't know how to take care of a human baby. He assumed (correctly) that if there is poop in the baby's diaper, the baby would be uncomfortable and cry. Like babies do in real life.

Question: When Hermione says "if we succeed more than one innocent life could be spared" why was she saying it in such a surprised tone?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Because it was at that moment she understood what Dumbledore had meant when he said earlier that more than one life could be spared - meaning that both Buckbeak and Sirius Black could be saved.

Question: In Buck's first theory scene, when Sid attacks Mummy dinosaur with the broccoli, what is all that green stuff that takes over the picture? Has the dinosaur turned into the broccoli? If so, why did Manny say " where's the dinosaur" if the dinosaur became the broccoli?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: When Rachael leaves and Deckard is looking at the photograph and flips it over, there's writing on the back. What was written and what does it mean? And was this something Rachael wrote on the back before leaving? Looking online I could only find people guessing what was written or what it meant. So is there a correct answer that I missed or is it just an ambiguous clue?

Bishop73

Chosen answer: Keep in mind, Deckard already determined that Rachel was a replicant. Her memories were implants, and her family photos were fake. So, the text on the back of the photo was probably meaningless, placed there just to lend another level of authenticity to Rachel's false memories. The text appears to be a phone number at the top (CAS 4217) followed by an address (68 W. Thika Blvd, South Wenton, Waytton). The word or name "Waytton" has a line drawn through it, apparently striking it out. This was possibly Rachel's childhood home phone number and address (completely fake, of course), which had sentimental value for Rachel but was useless information for Deckard's assignment.

Question: Why weren't Thor and Hulk in Civil War? If they would've been in the movie, whose side would they join and why?

Chosen answer: Most likely due to the events of Thor: Ragnarok. At the end of Age of Ultron Hulk/Banner disappears because he doesn't want to be involved in the fight anymore. Thor was in London with Jane but we don't know what he was up to. If they were to choose sides they both probably would have been on Cap's side. Banner doesn't want to be used as a weapon and Thor wants to protect Earth without being told what to do.
