Question: At the end of the episode, where Melinda helps that lady (who meets the guy who got her dead fiance's heart), what was the man at the end of the episode (who was laughing and seemed to be a spirit) supposed to be about?

Answer: This "spirit" appears in several episodes throughout the rest of the season including the season finale. He's a "bad spirit" that is intent on keeping souls trapped on Earth. With the death of Andrea (her business partner) he wanted to make a deal with Melinda, to give him HER soul to release everyone else including Andrea to cross over.

Question: The 2 Lincolns are fighting in the car while trying to outrun the copter. 6 Echo keeps biting Lincoln, and at one point Lincoln says "What's with all the biting?" But that line in not on the DVD. Anyone know why? That was one of my favorite lines in the movie, and it's not on the DVD, I was disappointed.

Disney-Freak

Question: Has New Zealand ever taken advantage (by way of tourism) of the huge success of these films? I mean slogans like "Come to Middle Earth, come to New Zealand" just keep clicking into my mind.

Answer: They did indeed, even going so far as to unofficially appoint a minister, dubbed, inevitably, the Minister for Middle-Earth, to keep tabs on the effects on the economy caused by the increase in business and tourism.

Question: In which season and episode is Gallifrey destroyed, or is it just a shocking new plot development for the new series?

Answer: It was never destroyed on-screen; it was intact at the end of the TV movie, and destroyed by the start of the 2005 series. It was destroyed in the novel "The Ancestor Cell," but in a completely different manner to what happened in the series.

Question: When we find out about Locke's past, is Locke angry because his Dad just left him or what? I didn't really understand why he was so upset.

Answer: Locke's father him came to him under the guise of wanting to reconnect as father and son, but in actuality was only using Locke to get one of his kidneys for donation. Once he got that he brutally rejected Locke, admitting the con outright and flat out admitting there was no room for Locke in his life nor any desire to make room. He told Locke he never wanted to see him again and when Locke pursued a relationship his father continued to reject Locke outright and finally went as far as to move in the middle of the night.

Question: I know I have seen an episode where Ross is in his apartment (the ugly naked guy's one), and he is doing different stuff through the window for the girls to see (shark attack etc.), when Monica and Rachel use cutout boards of some Baywatch girls. Could someone please tell me which episode this is? Thank you.

Question: What's the deal with Darryl Van Horne; was he a warlock, the Devil himself, or something else?

Question: When the Hindenburg III docks with the Empire State Building, the newspaper shows early October 1939. Is there any clue as to what went differently in history concerning WWII?

Question: During the first task with the dragons, there is a shot of Hagrid in the stands. It seems very deliberate that there is only one other person sharing the shot, although slightly in the background. It really looks like the author, J.K. Rowling did a cameo in this shot. From her statement several years ago I realize she would be reluctant to do a cameo, but is there some more up-to-date information?

Answer: I'm not an expert, and I haven't seen any information about her changing her mind about doing a cameo. But I watched that scene very carefully and it does not look like J.K. to me.

Question: If Orbison did not want Joe to be messed up for the shoot the next day, then why did he abduct Lisa? By doing that, he is going to mess Joe up.

Answer: He means physically messed up. Emotional scars won't show up on camera, but a broken nose or a black eye would.

Question: Why did Paul drain his pool, dig up the box, and dump it in the river? It would have made more sense to not touch it, as it was the finding of the box by a fisherman that really made Mike zero in on him. I still can't figure out why.

Answer: Paul was planning to sell the house after Mary Alice commited suicide. Being that the next tenants might redo the property, if the pool was ripped up then they would find the body. Paul owned the property, knew the victim, and constructed the pool while they were living there so it would likely be enough evidence to convict him. However dumping the toy box in the lake meant that there wasn't any link/evidence to Paul or Mary Alice had anything to do with it other than owning a toy box.

Question: Where did the pig's head, that Amanda wears when she stabs Eric, come from? Does it have any significance that I just missed, or is it just another freaky aspect of their twisted game?

Answer: Jigsaw owns the pig's head. He used it in the first film to capture Dr. Gordon and Adam.

Answer: When John captured his very first subject, Cecil, it was in broad daylight during a Year of the Pig Festival. Therefore he used a cheap-looking pig mask to blend into the crowd while he kidnapped Cecil. John then decided (for whatever reason) to continue using a pig mask for his future kidnappings, but used a much higher quality mask.
