Question: When Bond wakes up in the hospital after being tortured and his eyesight is blurry, who is standing above him?

Chosen answer: Vesper at first, and then Mathis (whom Bond believes to be a double agent) appears next to her.

Question: Beside Barnabas, does Angelique have other love interests throughout the two centuries?

Chosen answer: Most likely there were "love interests" she used to help build her fishing business over the years, but her deepest and truest love was for Barnabas - if she could not have him, then no one will, so she cursed him forever.

Question: What is the relationship like between Elizabeth and Angelique?

Chosen answer: Business adversaries on the surface, but a personal distaste for each other - Angelique does not like Elizabeth for still being in the fishing business, and for being a Collins. Elizabeth does not like Angelique because Angelique is trying to destroy the Collins' fishing business and run the Collins out of town.

Question: At the start Smalls said he was from another state and didn't have a single friend in a thousand miles. Did that mean he never had any friends even before he moved?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: The line implies that Smalls had friends but he lives nowhere near them anymore. If he never had any friends at all before he would have said so.

Question: Why didn't Benny laugh at Smalls at the start like the others right after Smalls said that his life was over? And why did Benny make Smalls come play with them after how he saw he wasn't good at it, even if he did make a whole team when they could get anyone else?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Benny is more empathetic towards Smalls than the others initially are since, as a game, baseball is meant to be more about having fun than winning or losing. Inviting Smalls to join their ragtag team, even with his poor performance, is Benny's attempt to build Smalls' self-esteem and confidence in himself.

Question: Why did Voldemort want the Defense Against the Dark Arts job in the first place? Was it to get the students to be his followers?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He would be able to more easily recruit new followers, but he would also have access to an immense amount of Dark magic information stored in the library. He also suspected that one or more of the Deathly Hallows was hidden at Hogwarts.

Question: Even though Pettigrew valued his own life over his friends, why not just lie and tell him they went to Ireland to keep them safe?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Wizards have access to veritaserum, the truth potion, and there are others who can use legilimacy to read minds. Any lies Pettigrew told would be exposed eventually.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.

David Cañedo Mesinas

Question: What were the last lines of the movie?

Chosen answer: Marshall's line was, "Why do you fight it so hard, Earl?" Earl Brook's was, "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time and enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardships as the pathway to peace. Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is and not as I would have it, trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will, that I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen."

Chosen answer: Yes, in real life he was a musician, songwriter and record producer. Tito Puente died in 2000.

Casual Person

Question: I have a question about the CIA mission. The team are breaking into CIA HQ to get the NOC list, because Luther can't hack into the computer the list is held on, so Ethan has to physically be in the same room as the computer to get it. But if Luther is able to hack into the CIA's own security system to set off a fake fire alert in one of the areas, then why can't he hack the NOC list computer? It can't be that much harder considering how skilled he is.

Chosen answer: It's not that it's difficult security, it's that there is no outside line connected to that computer. It's impossible to access from anywhere except that room because it's the only room that it has a connection to.

Greg Dwyer

Question: If Hoffman designed Riggs' test so that everyone else dies and he comes out as a hero, then doesn't that violate Jigsaw's rules?

Chosen answer: Throughout the entire series, Jigsaw and his followers violate their own rules frequently. It happens in every single film, including the original. They may be brilliant, but you also gotta remember... they're completely nuts.

Question: Where do we find that Dr Lawrence Gordon has been assisting Jigsaw?

Chosen answer: It is finally revealed in the end of Saw: The Final Chapter that Dr. Gordon had been assisting Jigsaw and had helped in traps that involved medical procedures such as the key in Michael's eye at the beginning of Saw II and the stitches on Art and Blank for the Mausoleum trap in Saw IV. Before this was revealed, there were several occurrences which made viewers believe he was alive, most notably the video of Dr. Gordon limping when putting the key in Michael's eye. Director Darren Lynn Bousman intended to keep viewers in the dark had he stayed on, and Director Kevin Greutert intended for him to be in Saw VI, but Cary Elwes allegedly wanted to star in the "final film".

Question: Whose voice was on all the tapes? Did Kramer record them before he died or did Hoffman change his voice while recording them?

Chosen answer: In Saw IV, before John tests Cecil, he is seen testing a device that deepens his voice, so yes it is quite possible that Amanda and Hoffman do the same.

Question: How do Danny and Cha Cha know each other? He acts different around her and when they first met she said 'Zucko, baby'?

mzlol738

Chosen answer: It is implied that Danny and Cha-Cha used to date, and that she still holds a torch for him. Danny tries to pass off their acquaintance by telling Sandy she's a "friend of the family."

Michael Albert

Answer: Danny and Cha Cha did date. While at the drive-in Sandy says "I still think you went together." To "go together" back then meant going steady, as in they were boyfriend and girlfriend. Danny is trying to pass it off as something less serious but he does admit "We didn't go together, we just went together."

HX-1 - S2-E8

Question: Hawk asks Mace where St. John is both before he gets knocked out and sent to the desert, and in the scene where Mace is demonstrating the helicopter they stole capabilities. But Mace won't tell him. Why not just capture Mace and water-board him to force him to tell him where St. John is? Or inject a truth serum into Mace?

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.
