Why? Didn't he want to stay hidden?

Question: About the world health organization in Cardiff, what does Gerry want? Why does he think this will work? What does he want to do with it? How does he test his theory? This part of the movie was a little bit confusing to me.

Answer: Gerry gets an idea on the plane: he has noticed the zombies ignore some people, and realises this could be because they somehow sense those people have a life-threatening disease or infection and thus are not ideal carriers of the zombie plague. So, maybe such diseases can be used as camouflage (as long as they're treatable): if you infect someone and then give them the cure, they will live but will still have the disease in their blood, meaning (hopefully) that the zombies won't attack them. This doesn't cure or kill the zombies, but it will "hide" people from them if it works, keeping people safe and giving them time to deal with the zombies some other way. He realises he needs to find a place where deadly diseases are studied (and therefore where there will be live samples of the diseases), so he calls Thierry and has him find the closest such place that the plane can get to. This is the WHO lab in Cardiff. As he explains to the scientists there, he wants to get some of their deadliest disease samples from the vault, infect someone with one of them, and then expose them to a zombie to see if the "camouflage" works. He gets trapped in the vault, though (by the zombie who will kill him as soon as he opens the door), so he has no choice but to infect himself and hope his idea works. He injects himself with some disease (we don't know which), waits a while for it to spread throughout his bloodstream, and then exits the vault. And it works: all the zombies ignore him because they can now sense he has a deadly disease and is no longer a good host for spreading the zombie plague. When he gets back to the others they inject him with the cure...but the disease is still in his bloodstream so he will remain "invisible" to the zombies.

Question: What is Dr. Andrew Fassbach's theory about zombies and mother nature?

Question: Why did Thomas go with Gerry's family? Why didn't he stay with his own family?

Answer: They were attacked and bitten. You can see his father on the roof top when they escape in the helicopter as one of the zombies.

Question: What does Gerry find in Korea, and how do they get back to the plane to go to Jerusalem?

Question: What is Jurgen Warmbrunn's theory about zombies?

Question: Who can actually enter the wall in Jerusalem? Is it all the civilians or not?

Question: What is the police's recommendation to the civilians and what is Gerry's?

Question: Why aren't there any other patients/staff?

Answer: One could argue that Haddonfield is a small town, and perhaps there just aren't that many doctors, nor that many patients in the hospital at any given time. It really just depends. Also, I've had to go to the ER a number of times in my life. Most of the time, it's busy, but there has been a few times where it has been pretty much completely dead and empty, not too dissimilar from what you see in this movie. So it could possibly just be a slow night.

Question: Why did Hampton's family go home really early, after riding the monorail when they just got there and didn't even go on any rides?

Answer: They were saving the other rides for their next trip.

Question: Is this a prequel? The end confused me. How can part 5 characters be on flight 180 from part 1?

amycamille1975

Answer: Yes, it is a prequel to the original film.

Question: It's supposed to be Devil's Night, so why are there child trick or treaters running around in costumes when Eric is wandering around outside?

Answer: Given that there is going to be likely dozens of buildings burned down by the next day, kids probably want to get their trick or treating done a day early.

Season 5 generally

Question: In season 2 T-Bag says to Suzy, when he kidnaps her and the kids and takes them to his childhood home, that he cannot procreate and that he is the last in the line of Bagwells. How then does he have a son in season 5? Have I missed something?

Answer: Giving an in-universe answer; T-Bag didn't know he had a son at the time he was speaking to Susan. It's unlikely he got a fertility test done and may just be assuming, however, if he got a fertility test done after 1991, it could come back that he's impotent. But as far as he knows, he's the last Bagwell of his family. Then in season 5 he finds out David is his son. It's not unheard of for women to not let the fathers know about their children (or that they're even pregnant) or not give their child the father's last name. Giving an out-of-universe answer; writers simply retconned his past to allow him to have a child, forgot what they had written, or just hoped no-one would notice.

Question: When there's a fight with the German dancers Clark dances with and the Griswolds run away and drive away as fast as they can, why do those German dancers chase after them with ropes? What were they going to do to them?

Answer: They're a lynch mob. Remember what Rusty's date said: Girl: They haven't rang those bells in years! Rusty: What do they mean? Girl: They're going to hang someone! (pause) Rusty: Dad.

Brian Katcher

Question: In the final scenes where the five sheriffs are hunting Clint, one of the sheriffs passes by a barn and in the peak of the roof, what I believe are floodlights. Am I wrong?

Question: Did C-3PO and R2-D2 appear in this film?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: I was wondering about this, too. C-3PO did not appear in Solo, and I cannot find any Internet reference pertaining to R2-D2 being in it. Curiously, Anthony Daniels, the actor who has played C-3PO in all the other Star Wars movies, makes a cameo appearance in Solo as another character (Chewbacca's friend).

Question: What was that scream at the end? Was that Kate's scream? If so, why did she scream? What happened to her at the end?

Answer: The killer is Adam who was previously Jason. He has had plastic surgery. Dorothy was framed by him.

Answer: Unless he does kill her because his bleeding nose onto her would make her aware of his true Identity and he would kill her to conceal it.

Joey221995

Answer: It wasn't a scream at the end, it was the music. I think Adam only killed the three girls, and Dorothy killed the rest.

Answer: At the end, Kate thinks the mystery of the masked killer has been solved - "Adam" has framed Dorothy. But, of course, the viewers know that the killer is actually Jeremy, who suffers from nosebleeds in times of distress. As Adam's nose starts to bleed (onto Kate's cheek) at the end, it is revealed that he is in fact Jeremy after all. The scream is most likely just added for dramatic effect and not actually Kate since, while we know she's in danger, she remains blissfully unaware.

Question: At the end of the movie, it shows Benny managing to steal home, being called safe, the catcher arguing that Benny was out and the umpire saying Benny was safe. In slow motion, it shows the catcher catching the ball and tagging Benny as he slides into home so why wasn't Benny called out?

Answer: The umpire got the call wrong in that case. It happens all the time in real life. It wasn't allowed back then, but now Major League Baseball and other sports leagues will use instant replay to make sure they get close calls right.

Answer: The catcher tags Benny on the chest after he touches home plate with his left hand. Safe.

LorgSkyegon

Answer: The film shows Benny beating the tag. Although the ball gets there before Benny, the catcher tags Benny a split second after his hand touches home plate.

BaconIsMyBFF

Question: Why do Jasper and Horace not appear in this film? Are they still in prison or did Cruella just lose faith in them?

Answer: Most likely both.

Question: How was Annette able to get Sebastian's car after he died? Kathryn probably wouldn't give it to her.

Answer: Sebastian could have had a will and left it to her. Plus she was likely either in jail or rehab after being caught with cocaine, leaving her with little power to do anything about it.
