What nuance is given here that indicates the subjunctive must be used?

I guess the nuance is that there is an element of uncertainty. How might it be...I think we woukd say how come i'm not up to speed.

We usually use the subjunctive with expressions followed by "que": C'est important que, bien que, comment ça se fait que, etc.
