According to the writer, it's intentionally ambiguous. You get to decide. "We declared a lot of things explicitly about what happens to all the characters," Mike Schur tells me. "And I wanted there to be one point of real ambiguity. I declared it in the writers' room as the 'David Chase end of The Sopranos moment.' Lower stakes probably, but I ...

This answer will contain many spoilers if you haven't seen the entire show. First you must understand who/what the smoke monster is. from Lostpedia: The Man in Black was a centuries-old inhabitant of the Island. He was once a normal man with dark hair and steely eyes, but an encounter with the Heart of the Island, brought on by his brother Jacob, ...

Out of Universe: In an interview with MoviePilot, Jurassic World director and writer Colin Trevorrow stated that the goal was to build a new film franchise, rather than merely being a sequel of the old film trilogy. "[There never was plans to bring back any of the original trio]. I never saw a draft in which they were included, and I think I looked at ...

Short answer: Yes, he does have Asperger's. Long answer: Asperger's Syndrome is diagnosed based on externally-observable criteria, both because a specific physiological cause has not been discovered (if it at exists at all), and because it is a part of the spectrum of autistic disorder, so whether you have nothing, Asperger's, high-performing autism etc. ...

Malcolm is called Sir by multiple people through out the series, including Zoe and Kaylee and even Rayne (sarcasticly). He's also called Sarge, Sergeant, Cap and Captain. All titles of authority, both earned and given. As you mentioned, this is more of a TV thing than real life. In real life, the don't call me Sir thing varies by person, and situation. ...

Sheldon has gone to the Hospital multiple times, before and after "The Engagement Reaction". He doesn't like doing it, but he's normally guilt-tripped into it, as part of social convention. Even in "The Engagement Reaction": Penny: Okay, you know what? You are unbelievable. You buy all these superhero T-shirts, but when it’s time for you to step up and ...

Very early in the process, several of the actors had been, at various points, asked to reprise roles. Obviously, by the time the final draft had been accepted, Sir Richard Attenborough had passed away and he wasn't an option. Also, by that time, the story had changed and was scripted to take place 22 years after the original trilogy. A fairly detailed ...

Why is Tommen not involved in the trial? As Tywin tells Tommen shortly after he becomes king: "Wisdom is what makes a good king. But what is wisdom? How do you know which choice is wise and which isn't? A wise king knows what he knows and what he doesn't. You're young. A wise young king listens to his counselors and heeds their advice until he comes of ...

First, from a story telling point of view, if he did, he could never be beat. Same reason he doesn't just run in at supersonic and knock everyone unconscious every episode. Otherwise, the show and the comics are both fairly consistent in that a Speedster, someone connected to the Speed-Force, behaves differently in motion then at rest. They have to actively ...

Its referencing Marilyn Monroe quotes from the 1950's, around the same time the show is set: More overtly erotic than Dorothy, and way cannier, Lorelei doesn’t give anything away. She’s learned the hard way — being seduced and abandoned by a man back in Arkansas — that sex is a commodity: she’s got it, and men should pay for it, preferably in carats. As ...

I don't believe it is ever explicitly said in the film, but it is supposed to be 20. This is what is stated in the play (see here for a link to a "snippet" from the play). A lot of the confusion/controversy in the film comes from the "chicken" scene, where she mentions she is 12. This has been discussed by several people involved in the film, including ...

In addition to sanpaco's answer the reason why The Man in Black can go to the Hydra Island is because that island is essentially part of The Island as both islands are moving together through space and time. This means that he in fact never leaved The Island when going to Hydra and didn't break the rule.

I think you missed the key dialogue in the previous episode. When Maze threw the knife at Lucifer and he caught it, he say something like: Demon knives forged in Hell don't count, we all know these draw blood. In other words, those knives would have hurt Lucifer, if they have hit him. Maze just assumed Lucifer would catch them, because she'd been ...

You really can't compare Vito and Michael's tenures. First of all, Vito's rise to power was pretty quick; he took out one guy who apparently had no connections or backup. Michael, on the other hand, grew up in a time of family power, each of which had plenty of "foot soldiers" who could enforce a family's will. In Michael's time, Vito would have been ...

I asked my good friend Patricia Beauchamp (the film's co-Screenwriter) what her original intention was for Miranda. Q. Probably a daft question, but is Miranda a germ-phobe or just OCD? Patricia Beauchamp: We conceived her as controlling & very particular more than OCD or germaphobic. That being said, several of the film's actors, in ...

In the tub scene, when Tom wants to get in Dickie almost throws up in his mouth and sternly says no. Only after recognizing that Dickie wasn't down for the get down does Tom then say "I didn't mean with you in it." Dickie then relaxes and gets out, however he swats his towel at Tom as a way to break the tension I think by letting Tom know everything was ...

Sheldon nine seasons in is a very different character in some ways from the person he was in season 1. Season 1 Sheldon would never consider having sex with a person simply because of the unpredictability and lack of control of the fluid exchange. But in the nine years since he's adapted many of his behaviours. Its' entirely possible that his hospital hissy ...

The US Military, specifically the US Air National Guard, made/commissioned the prototype flight suits, the EXO-7 Falcon, that Sam used in Afghanistan. The last one, presumably Sam's since Riley's was destroyed when he died, is the one he asks Capt and Nat to steal in "Winter Soldier". It was taken back when Sam was discharged from the service. That suit ...

According to this "Script to Screen" Q&A Session with the film's writer; Carl Gottlieb Robert Shaw brought the idea that the Quint character he was playing should be eating something, jaws mimicking the shark itself and they gave him saltine crackers to champ on. So there you go, straight from the horse's shark's mouth

Whatever Gilligan says, I think the character is meant to elicit some sympathetic or empathic reactions from the audience. We wouldn't be interested in him if the character wasn't designed that way. Early on we have a great deal of sympathy as he is an ill, underpaid teacher facing a bleak future and we don't know how he will provide for his family. We ...

Force abilities and sensitivities are not, Skywalker family aside, inherited. You don't have to have force-capable parents or grandparents or ancestors to be able to use the force. As the Prequel Trilogy shows, force abilities are just a subset of having a high count of midichlorians. Jedi's normally went around, looking for kids that have this tendency, to ...

If Sheldon Cooper was tested as a child, he probably was not tested for Asperger's. http://psychcentral.com/lib/history-of-aspergers-disorder/ It wasn't until 1994 Asperger's was made "official". Before that time, it was probably not so common to test for it. If a patent had a high IQ, Autism would often be ruled out, even though Asperger's is ...

MTV was able to ask Bale about that process of his bat-voice while he is out doing press for his new movie Out of the Furnace. "I got there. They put me in Val Kilmer's suit. It didn't even fit properly, and I stood in it and I went 'I feel like an idiot.' What kind of guy walks around, dressed like a bat? And is then going to go 'Hello, how are ...

In-universe, Jack is depicted as a perpetual teen with the official iPhone App pegging his age at 17 (for the last 300 years). Over time, he's clearly changed his look to emulate the young people he sees around him, including picking out age-appropriate clothes. I don't think we need to read any more into the actual hoodie itself other than that he probably ...

It's not a "condition" at all, but just an overactive imagination coupled with a penchant for daydreaming. The movie was based on a short story by James Thurber. In the story, Mitty accompanies his wife on a mundane shopping trip. To pass the time, Mitty has a succession of 5 "heroic daydreams", each of which parallel a situation he is in on his trip. ...
