When Sullivan comes home he has pastries. He is expecting the woman to be there like earlier in the film. She isn't there because the envelope contained a full account of the truth. It told her to find digby (Wahlberg) and explain to him the truth. He had know way to know that Sullivan was the rat since Sullivan blamed this on the other rat and recommended ...

From the wiki The alien also has electromagnetic powers which can cause guidance systems to break down and make missiles misfire. I believe that it was mentioned that the military weapons were misfiring. So the alien is indeed underground but is close enough to cause the military's weapons to malfunction.

To answer this properly would require using spoilers from the books. (I can update my answer with spoilers if need be, but I assumed since this is on the TV and movies se that you're looking for a show answer) . - Updated Avoiding that, it's reasonable to assume they would rally for the Targaryens. Dany's sister in law was Elia of Dorne (sister of Oberyn ...

Because after 2:02:00 @ Matrix Reloaded, Neo did not ever returned to the Real World, but instead went to a simulated replica of the real world. When Neo walked outside from the architect room, the architect had made the following changes[1] in "The Matrix" 1) While the architect was talking to Neo, he created a close replica of the "Real World"[2]. I ...

I agree with the others, that its about causing Angier pain because of the disgust he feels, but there is perhaps a deeper meaning that relates to the theme of the whole film. The story of a sailor drowning and feeling like he's going home is in a sense the idea that to die doing the thing you dedicate your life too wouldn't even hurt, it would feel like ...

At some point in time, the matrix figure out that people were escaping the matrix using the telephone lines. By learning this, the architect of the matrix moved the telephone trunk lines into another space, where the people would assume they were outside the matrix but it wasnt. Thats why the Oracle said that Neo was not the one. What Neo did when he ...

I think in the movie Jack dies and climbs to heaven but not necessarily dies from love. I think it was heartbreak from Miss Acacia rejecting him and finding out Madeline died, I know how it feels when a parent dies having lost my own mum, coupled with his clock simply winding down and him choosing not to let Acacia rewind it. Whether it was him deciding he ...

This is the conversation between Jack Sparrow and Bootstrap Bill when the latter came to deliver Davy Jones' message and the black spot: Jack: And to what do I owe the pleasure of your carbuncle? Bootstrap: He sent me. Davy Jones. Jack: So it's you, then. He shanghaied you into service, eh? Bootstrap: I chose it. I'm sorry for the part I played in ...

In the film Davy Jones is supposed to be ferrying souls lost at sea into the Locker so they can be at peace. However, the Davy Jones in the film is not doing his job properly, hence the weird/fish/ocean/coral like appearance of him and his crew. Instead, Davy Jones is attacking pirates and sailors and offering them a choice, to die or to serve on his ship. ...

It certainly wasn't initially a suicide mission. Several comments made by Capa and Corazon initiate that fact, but in addition, consider the conversation between Trey and Mace; Trey: "If you rotate that much, we're going to lose Comm towers 3 and 4." Mace: "Well, it's a good thing we don't need them." Trace: "We don't need them now; we're going to need ...

There is a common sailors' phrase: "Davy Jones' Locker" which means "the bottom of the ocean": Davy Jones' Locker, also Davy Jones's Locker, is an idiom for the bottom of the sea: the state of death among drowned sailors and shipwrecks. It is used as a euphemism for drowning or shipwrecks in which the sailor(s)'s and/or ship(s)'s remains are consigned to ...

I haven't actually seen this show yet. However, there is a method by which you mix alum and vinegar and use that as 'ink' to write on an egg. Once you've boiled and peeled the egg, the message appears on egg white. Supposedly this was developed during the Spanish Inquisition by Giambattista della Porta.

I think he had made up his mind when he spoke these words to Rick: What if my problem wasn't that I don't understand people but that I don't like them? What if I was the kind of person who was obliged to hurt you for this? I mean physically. I think you'd have to believe afterward, if you could, that agreeing to participate and then backing out at the ...

IMO, Lou seemed to flip when Rick asked for half the reward. Up until that point, Lou was making lots of money and enjoying having a partner with no scruples. What Rick basically did at that moment was held Lou's livelihood at ransom. Lou knew he needed a second cameraman for the job, but so did Rick. Rick knew that whatever he asked for, Lou would have ...

Given the kind of person that Lou's character was, he never gave a damn about his partner. Whether or not Rick had asked him for a raise, Lou would have sacrificed Rick anytime if a situation ever came up where Lou could benefit from his death. Such kind of person, was Lou. Secondly, what really infuriated Lou was not Rick asking for a raise or asking for a ...

She doesn't kill John because the contract was pulled, so she would break another rule and not even get payed for the kill. The movie is unclear what happens if someone breaks the "no killing in the hotel", it just states that there are "heavy punishments" on breaking it. In the movie everybody except Perkins obeys the rule and it is probably not very ...

As many people don't think, this could be a real black hole. The reason why cooper survived was because he was hit by the outflying singularity. Inside the event horizon, there are 2 singularities. The one that drags you in is basically the only one people know about, and is called the i falling singularity . The other is the outflying singularity. It forms ...

Cooper was 35 - 38 years old when he left and Murph was 10 years old when her father left. 2 years for Saturn 23 years (Miller's planet) 51 years (Slingshot around Gargantua) 124 years old when Copper is found near Saturn So I would agree to say he has to be between the ages of 35-38 years old. I really want to go with 38 years old as I think there was a ...

This is explained in the second film - Peter's father altered the Spider's DNA with his own, meaning only Peter could have gained the benefits from it. This was the ensurance that after Peter's father's death (which his father expected would happen) the power would stay safe and die with him. Here is the direct quote from the script: Richard Parker: It ...

Esterhase knew of Tinker Tailer because his source Merlin told him. Kara got the information from torturing Prideaux but he already knew because Prideaux told/warned Haydon who in turn warned Karla.

Could be because Mann had booby-trapped KIPP when he took its power cells for his cryo-sleep Or at the very least pushed it to self-destruct mode (as TARS joked it would do when Cooper increased its humour percentage).

WHY?!? Well, she had to make it convincing. She had to seem, to appear ESPECIALLY loyal. It's why she was not only so close to Jack and Tony; she went to bed with them. She was a right-hand lady, she had to be (The Least Likely Suspect). "I never would've guessed that... She seemed so..." But a lot of people did. Why? She was the MOST Likely Suspect ...

As explained in the following episode, Harrison Wells tells Barry that when you change details of the timeline, time has a way of correcting itself. Even though Barry desperately wanted things to act the same as they happened in timeline x, but because he locks up Mark Mardon before the conclusion of timeline x the timeline now corrects itself as this did ...

The ' symbol just after Theta-Sigma is the key to all the message. The Doctor knows he is being talked to directly. It is short for περισπωμένη.

Now first and foremost, the Tales of the Black Freighter were actually part of the comic source material. So including them in the movie adapation is a natural consequence for a movie production that strived to provide a very accurate reproduction of its source material (but ultimately had to cut such on first sight rather marginal things for a reasonable ...

Unlike the books, Ser Loras is not part of King Joffrey's Kingsguard, and this status has not changed with the advent of King Tommen. He was indeed part of King Renly's Kingsguard, but with Renly's death his vows were not renewed to Joffrey. This was a change in the story since in the TV universe he is the only Tyrell son, unlike the books where he was the ...

Zack Snyder (the film director) has stated that Batman v Superman would take inspiration from the Frank Miller comic, The Dark Knight Returns.1 The biggest deal was, Snyder brought out Man of Steel actor Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) to use his cool voice to read the following piece of dialogue: "I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years ...

Malvo first posed this riddle to Gus in episode 4, and later in that episode Molly gave Gus a clue ... she talked about how predators created a need in the prey to differentiate between shades of green so that the prey could protect themselves. So, when Gus hearkens back to this riddle in the finale, he's essentially telling Malvo he's figured out what sort ...

The machine didn't get it wrong. The POI was the judge. Reese does think it was wrong at first: Reese: Finch, what's the son's name again? Finch: Samuel Gates Junior. Why? Reese: I think we've been following the wrong Sam Gates. Reese says it because the son is then kidnapped. But the machine identified Sam the father because he's the victim of a ...

I can think of at least three reasons: Superior training and equipment of Stannis' army – We must remember that, despite the wildings' apparent ferocity, they are still just civilians with no formal military training, makeshift weapons, and no armor to speak of. Certainly they would have no experience repelling heavy cavalry assaults, and it's not ...

There are much more things to consider here apart from just head count. First of all, as you already identified, Stannis is an excellent general which might give him a little strategic advantage. While Mance Rayder might also not be that unexperienced, the wildling army always seemed to me to be more of a motley crew specialized in brute force, mere ...

Stannis' army was made up of professional soldiers (including mercenaries and knights), while the free folk are notorious for their disorganization. On top of that, Mance Rayders army was attacking a force of 700 or so men and was completely caught by surprise when Stannis and his army hit their flank.

I think plain and simple it's a "fourth-wall" thing. He was waiting for the dialogue card to roll in when the policeman started talking to him, as was the premise of the movie. When this didn't happen he was confused, it felt as if he was ostracised not only from the hollywoodland world, but from this same "The Artist" picture altogether. Thus he decided it ...

First thing, In Gotham, they have made characters different from the other incarnations. Most of the characters look like in a gray era, they didn't choose any side yet. Like Nygma, Cat etc. This Alfred also looks like in a grey era, he is a good guy with some darkness inside too, which might appear in future episodes. Alfred's nature towards Bruce has ...

I agree to Darrick's answer about the procedure. About the scene, I would add that it's a way to show the... depth of their physical contact. An emphasis that adds realism, consequence, and restores self-awareness.

This is one of the few movies that actually identifies a time travel reality. You cannot change events in your own timeline (baring parallel universes). One should look up the John Titor hoax for a good explanation of that type of time travel. Please stay with me on this, I'm veering from the movie so I can explain why I think Gilliam did what he did, then ...

Ok, since it seems no one else wants to touch this one, I'll take it. She is wiping up the semen. After sex, semen doesn't stay inside a woman very well. Especially when she's standing, as gravity pulls it down. To prevent semen from dribbling down her leg and staining her pants (or skirt; I don't remember), she wipes it up, much like she would wipe after ...

I had two thoughts about this. One being that Doug killed Rachel because when he was with her he felt that same obsession reignited. When she talked about wanting to move away and be invisible it was quite apparent that Doug would never be factored into that equation. If he couldn't have her he didn't want anyone else to. Secondly, when he was driving off it ...

Obviously, it's easier for the character (Jane) to overlook the scars (especially if John chose to hide them) than it is for the filmmakers. What's more difficult to explain is the fact that, when she became John, Jane presumably didn't notice she now looked like her lost lover. At first, I too thought it was intentionally ignored to keep the plot simple (I ...

I think that other commenters are correct in that killing Rachel would prove Doug's commitment to "doing whatever it takes" to please Frank, especially in light of the fact that he had talked to Heather Dunbar about Claire's journal, something that he could have been permanently ousted for. Doug is an extremely obsessive man: he is obsessive about working ...

Because his father taught him not to involve in any (true loving) relationship in their line of work. Nicky knew they both fell truly for each other, so he decide to leave her for the sake of both of them. At the end scene, his father can be seen saying these things, and because of that mistake (losing focus) he took all his earned/stolen money.

I don't think it is plothole. To open a Bank account you would need to provide certain details with which the identity of the person who is opening the account can be determined. Now imagine if you are a bad guy would you prefer to give out your account number to a government personal, with which you could be traced. You will also expose all the other ...

...one thing that everyone missed here is that Beth said that her door didn't lock properly.

Catherine was pinning everything on to Beth to gain revenge on her for what had happened in high school. She could have easily set up ...

Here's my theory: You're right about the conversation being normal up to that point. But also notice that Doctor Williams' conversation with his wife is normal until he mentions Belgium. His wife is perplexed by the concept of Belgium just like the governor is perplexed by the concept of releasing prisoners, which makes me think that Voorman did that too. ...

What I think he meant by that was, that because of the Arrow, Vertigo actually became more popular. By stopping it he just made it more exclusive. I remember the papers running about Arrow and Vertigo in the previous encounters. What it could also mean is that by creating an antidote, The Arrow actually forced the maker to increase its power, making it ...

Mix milk of poppy in their food and when they are asleep change the chains. Risky yes but might work. Milk of the poppy is a medical drink, used as both a painkiller and an anesthetic. Higher doses will induce unconsciousness, so patients can undergo surgery. Maesters make it from crushed poppy flowers and it has a white color, hence "milk of the poppy". ...
