Question: According to the credits, the smallest of the three Satan Knights that come over to get JJ is nicknamed "Sweet Pea." However this name is never mentioned by anyone in this episode. The other two are mentioned (Mad Dog and Neck Bone). Why would the credits use a name not used?
Question: I realised a couple problems with Carson's plan. I understand that he murdered her husband by pushing him off the roof so he could hide the explosives in the casket, and that once Kyle and Julia boarded the plane and fell asleep, he could kidnap Julia, and Kyle would have a reason to open the casket. The first thing I don't understand is how did he get Kyle's husband to come onto the roof? What if a different person came onto the roof instead? Or what if multiple people came onto the roof? The second thing I don't understand is how did he know Kyle would decide to leave Germany and bury her husband's body in New York? What if she decided to store her husband's body somewhere and deal with it later? Or what if she decided to bury it in Germany instead?
Question: Could someone please explain to me what I consider two of the biggest plot holes in this film. Firstly, how was Snake going to get his glider back in the air? If it had jets or thrusters on it, that would make sense, but when it first took off, it was being towed by a plane which means it is just a standard glider (Plissken does admit to Hauk that it will be an issue, but that explains little). Also given that it is a one-seat glider, how was he going to bring back the president on it? In fact, how were Brain, Maggie and the President (in their attempted double-cross) all going to squeeze onboard?Gavin Jackson
Question: In the bridge attack scene, a missile hits a vehicle, and throws it a several yards. Look at how close Ethan is to the blast. Shouldn't a blast that powerful have seriously injured, if not killed him?
Question: This has bothered me since the first time I saw Love Never Dies. The dates for Christine's death don't line up, so I'm hoping for some insight as to why. On Christine's grave stone in Phantom, the dates 1854-1917 are given. Making her about 63 when she dies. However, if it's 1880 at the time she sings "think of me" that makes her 16... and then in Love Never Dies, her and Eric are saying how it's been "10 long years." Making her 26. But then she's shot and presumably dies, in 1890 rather than 27 years later in 1917. Even if there's a couple years in between the ending of this movie and the point that Christine last sees the phantom, that is a lot of time to fill up! So... am I missing something? Or is this a big plot hole?
Question: In the scene with the hot air balloons and Barney and the gang are trying to catch the egg, what's making the buzzing noise?
Question: Are the hot air balloons that the gang fly through on an airplane part of the Apple Day Festival?
Question: General Veers was a badass and did not screw up at all on the assault on Hoth. Why promote Piett to Admiral and not Veers?
Question: There seems to be an error. When Alvez and J.J. call Reid about Billy's grandma's house, he says Garcia told them after the grandmother died the city said the house wasn't up to code and they don't think anyone is living there. However, the electricity is on in the house. Would the city allow a house not up to code to keep the electricity on? Plus, since Billy doesn't live there and the only resident died, wouldn't the power be shut off anyways, meaning Billy would have to get the power back on in his name (or at least someone living's name)? But if the power is on, why wouldn't Garcia be able to know this and confirm it's likely someone is living there from the power usage? Also, do cities do anything about houses not up to code to prevent people from living or squatting there?Bishop73
