Question: In an interview sometime after the release of Goblet of Fire but before Order of the Phoenix, J.K. Rowling mentioned Mr. Weasley's flying car as one of several familiar "characters" from Books 1-4 who were slated to make a reappearance in Books 5-7 (along with Lupin, Dobby, Aragog, Crookshanks, and others, I believe). Obviously, that did not come to pass, but does anyone know if she's ever clarified which scene in which book the car was originally intended to appear in? I've always assumed that it would have been used to fly to the Ministry in OotP in place of the Thestrals (since it was right there in the Forest after all), but it's also possible it was originally meant to play some role in the Seven Potters chase/battle in DH. Has anyone heard anything about this?
Question: Why would Catherine take the blame for the lab explosion? If anyone was to blame it was Hodges. Since he accidentally turned on the hot plate and even admits that sometimes it gets switched on by others accidentally, if he had bothered to make sure he didn't switch it on before leaving the room, the explosion never would have happened.
Question: When Marty suggests (in 1985A) that they go back to 2015 to stop Old Biff from taking the almanac in the first place, Doc says no because it'll be 2015A instead. When Old Biff went from 2015 to 1955 to give himself the almanac, when he came back to 2015 again, it was still the same one he left because Marty and Doc are just getting Jennifer out of the new McFly house when he returns. So what's the difference? If Biff can go from 1955 to 2015, without it becoming 2015A, then why can't Marty and Doc do it from 1985A?
Question: During the opening dialogue, it is explained that Carnaby's plane was brought down after a raid on Nuremberg. Later in the same scene, it is explained that he was on his way to Egypt when his plane was shot down. Which one was it?
Question: When Ant-Man is traveling through the pipes, he reaches an intersection where ants hang down for him to grab and go up. How did those ants get ahead of him, and why didn't he just do what they did to get to that point?
