River apparently picked up the memory from some of the Alliance chiefs who came to see her training and the memory was also triggered by the code advert.

its very confusing, on a confusion scale of 1-10, I will give this sentence to 10.

What is the meaning of this weird sentence?

  • At the top of the page it reads: "The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff." Simply, the synopsis is not well written. Just based off that sentence I also can't tell you concretely what the meaning is. – Leo Jun 28 '16 at 6:17
  • Seems like a comma is missing before "and": "The memory was also triggered by the code advert" is an independent clause". Also, not sure whether "who came to see her training" is essential not to be separated by commas. – Rompey Jun 28 '16 at 8:36
