New this month Question: What happened to Boromir's boat? Did it sail to the west?

DFirst1

New this month Answer: No, it simply washed out to sea. His brother, Faramir, found the broken Horn of Gondor and knew it was a sign of Boromir's death.

Show generally

New this month Question: Does anyone know why Zulu, who played Kono, left the show?

Cathyrid

New this month Answer: He was fired. He never really appreciated his character. He felt Kono was portrayed as a big dumb Hawaiian and that the stereotype was racist. He also felt underutilized. He was fired after a heated argument with the show's publicist regarding his character. It seems there's not much details given regarding the incident or the firing, so it's seems possible he upset the show's producers as well.

New this month Question: We are told that Dave Jones and his crew were ‘fishified' (by Calypso?) because they stopped ferrying souls, because Davy Jones was mad when his girlfriend, Calypso, didn't show up after he had been ferrying souls for ten years. So was Davy Jones just pirating after that and always trying to staff up the ship? Why would he need to recruit if they were undead? And what was happening to the souls, before Will became Captain of the Flying Dutchman and fulfilled the duties?

New this month Answer: The souls were just drifting around, not finding peace as we see when the black pearl sails away from Davey Jones locker. Davey Jones was just having fun killing shipwrecked people and recruiting anyone who feared death. The crews members don't stay on the ship indefinitely, some get off eventually and Davey needs to resupply the ranks.

New this month Question: There is a red flag behind Obadiah while he was "freezing" Reza, and the same flag appears in the video watched by Pepper on Tony's desktop. The same flag / logo was used by Mandarin in Iron Man 3. Was it the same "enemy platform", being manipulated by the bad guys?

New this month Answer: The flag has the symbol of "The Ten Rings" the terrorist group that captured Stark. Which is a real in universe terrorist group in the MCU. Aldrich Killian used the flag for his Mandarin videos to add some credibility to his scheme.

New this month Question: Some told me Stuck On You was based on a true story - is this true?

New this month Answer: No.

New this month Answer: It's a fictional film, but Dr. Ben Carson, the real-life neurosurgeon who is now a member of the Trump Administration, had a cameo role in the film which may have led some to believe that this was based on a true story.

New this month Question: After R2-D2 helps fix the escaping ship, Queen Amidala thanks the droid in front of Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan and her handmaidens, but Amidala's decoy refers to her handmaiden as Padme. Why doesn't she refer to her as Sabe? Doesn't everyone know that Queen Amidala's first name is Padme?

New this month Answer: Padme was impersonating a handmaid, using her real name. Sabe was playing her role of Queen Amidala. This was unknown to Qui-Gon.

raywest

But the point is that using the queen's real name seems like it's giving the game away a bit.

Queen Amidala supposedly has 2 handmaidens. Sabe and Padme. Nobody knows Padme is the real Queen's name, they just know her as Queen Amidala.

lionhead

Qui Gon and Obi Wan do not know Queen Amidala, having only recently met her, or that her real name is Padme.

New this month Question: If Venom knew everything Peter knew while he wore the black suit (symbiote), why didn't he try to recruit Harry (The New Goblin) into him and Sandman's alliance against Spider-Man? He obviously knew Harry did not like Peter based on their second fight which consisted of Peter wearing the black suit.

New this month Question: Mike and Sulley are able to activate the door when stuck at the kids camp by harnessing enough screams to activate it. If laughter is 10 times more powerful than screams, then why wouldn't child laughter (especially if there is a Birthday party, etc.) not activate doors from the "human world" allowing kids to go into the factory (monster world) all the time?

New this month Answer: Well a door first needs to be activated from the monster side. See the doors of the human world lack the receiver for the energy they need to open the doorway between worlds (the red light on top). That's why in the monster world they hook a door up to a machine to activate it allowing the passage between worlds before any scream or laugh is made. It costs power to activate a door to allow a monster in. Boo was able to activate doors because she was in the monster world and her screams and laughs triggered the devices on top of the doors, activating them automatically. This was the first time ever a human entered the monster world.

New this month Question: Mr. Vernon knew that Brian, John, Claire and Andrew had detention for what they did, so when Alison shows up as well, why did he let her have detention? Why didn't he tell her to go back home?

New this month Answer: It's pretty clear he doesn't much care to be there, and has little more than contempt for the students. Given that clerical errors are a daily part of life in most schools, he likely just assumed she was supposed to be there but the paperwork was wrong.

Jason Hoffman

New this month Question: When Marietta denied that there had been any other meetings, was that just to let her friends off? I don't see why she rats them out one minute and then tries to protect them the next.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: Because her memory was charmed by Kingsley Shacklebolt before she could.

Chapter One: MADMAX - S2-E1

New this month Question: Is Billy's car supposed to be the same car that Mel Gibson is driving in the Mad Max movies? It looks a lot like the same car. If so, was this done on purpose?

New this month Answer: They're both muscle cars, but that's about the extent of the similarities. But the 70's were filled with a lot of muscle cars, so some car models may look a bit like another's. Billy's car is a late 70's Chevy Camaro (probably a ‘79). Mad Max's car is a 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT. Incidentally, the Ford Falcon was produced by Ford Australia and wasn't an American car, or even sold in America (as in not sold at dealerships).

Bishop73

According to the experts its a Camaro '78 with added vented side fenders.

A Jolting Switcheroo! - S17-E16

New this month Question: Lyn mistakenly takes Bonnie's identical satchel containing Dedenne, but shouldn't Lyn's satchel be a different color so the mix-up doesn't happen?

New this month Answer: It just happened because the girls each had the same colored bag.

New this month Question: What do the T-Birds mean when they ask Rizzo "What are you doing out without a net/Annette?" Is it just another Annette Funicello reference? That always confused me.

New this month Answer: He's referring to a safety net that acrobats would use because she's climbing down the trellis and it's dangerous.

Greg Dwyer

New this month Question: Why is Amanda the only Jigsaw victim who never has to harm herself to win the game, but kill another, making her game easier to win than the others?

New this month Answer: She's technically not. A number of others have been put in traps/games where they don't necessarily have to meet physical harm throughout the series, including this film. Amanda's game is based more around emotional turmoil and a time-limit, which are tactics Jigsaw often uses either instead of or in conjunction with physical torment.

New this month Answer: She's actually not. Dr. Gordon could have won his game without mutilating himself by killing Adam. And as for why she doesn't have to harm herself, since she has a large device rigged around her head with the lock attached at the back, Jigsaw may have decided it would be more fair to her to not have to mutilate herself to get the key.
