New this week Stupidity: Jake uses several Loops and travels all over the world in order to get back on the boat at the end of the film. This was completely unnecessary as only the final Loop in 1942, which was available to him in 2016, was the one he needed to enter despite the fact that its nature should have prevented him from reaching 1943 anyway.
New this week Plot hole: At the end, Jake utilizes multiple Loops to reach September 4th, 1943, the date from which Miss Peregrine's children impossibly entered another Loop set in the winter at the beginning of 2016. The closest date prior to this was in 1942, from when Jake waits for September 4th 1943 to arrive. However, having entered a Loop in 1942, he would have been unable to reach 1943 because he'd be stuck living the same day in 1942 over and over.
New this week Plot hole: On a certain date in 2016, Jake enters Peregrine's Loop on September 3rd, 1943 where her children relive the same day over and over and all non-peculiars are completely unaware of the Loop. When the Loop closes and it becomes September 4th, 1943, the children, without re-entering 2016, travel by steamliner to London and enter a Loop set in a date six months prior to the date from which Jake entered Peregrine's 1943 Loop. The trouble is, this Loop did not exist in 1943, so it should have been inaccessible to the children.

Trivia: When the pterosaur flies into the restaurant, a man in a blue denim shirt wearing a safari-brim tan fedora and a red handkerchief tied around his neck can be seen jumping away from the creature. It is not Alan Grant, but this extra was dressed in the same outfit Dr. Grant wore in the original Jurassic Park.

Character mistake: Izzie tells the patient's mother if she doesn't want to be late for her 6:00pm job she needed to leave immediately as it is a 3 hour drive, when it is actually less than half that: 88 miles - 1 hour 20 minutes. There is only one route from Seattle to Chehalis, Interstate 5. The vast majority of the drive has speed limit of 65-70 MPH and at 3:00pm (or earlier) traffic will not be an issue.

Trivia: When the mayor is giving his presentation about the plans for new development, one of the men is fiddling with a tiny black model car. He causes it to pop a wheelie and cruise down the model street; just like the black Dodge Charger Vin Diesel popped a wheelie in during his climactic race with Paul Walker, who also stars in this movie, in The Fast and the Furious.

Trivia: The novel Casino Royale, the first James Bond novel, was originally published on April 13, 1953. Pierce Brosnan was born on May 16, 1953, making him one month and three days younger than Bond the character. This Bond film marks the first time the character had existed longer than the actor playing him.

Continuity mistake: At one point near the beginning of the infiltration of the helicarriers, Captain America's chinstrap has a twist from his right jaw down to where it covers his chin. This is visible in two shots. The next time his right side is shown afterward, the twist is gone. The chinstrap is too tight for it to have flipped on its own accidentally, and the pad which covers his chin is molded so it wouldn't have sat properly on his face even if it had somehow flipped around. There were undoubtedly several prop helmets made, and this one must have been put together incorrectly.

Character mistake: When everyone is preparing to go in to dinner, Robert is wearing an adjustable bow tie. It's bad enough he's wearing black tie to dinner when he has guests, as his mother points out, but Robert, the Earl of Grantham, absolutely would not be seen wearing an adjustable tie with a stand up shirt collar, even among only his immediate family.

Deliberate mistake: The "chest compressions" Diggle performs on Oliver at the beginning of this episode are laughable. He's barely applying any pressure at all, and his arms are almost straight out in front of him instead of straight down. I would have called this a character mistake since Diggle really ought to know better, but this is more of a safety issue than an oversight; real chest compressions tend to break ribs.

Factual error: Johnny shows Mavis the sunrise by keeping her back in the shadows. But if your whole body is in an object's shadow then you can't see the light source. The rising sun is reflected dead center in Mavis' eyes, which means the sunlight is touching her, which means she ought to be on fire.

Continuity mistake: After Oz and Theodora have climbed down from the small cave where they hid from their first encounter with a flying baboon and are having a brief conversation, the brim of Theodora's hat alternates from being held up on her right side in the shots from behind her, and being down as it normally is in the shots from in front of her. Presumably this was done to prevent the hat brim from obscuring Oz's face.

Question: Fischer has been trained to resist dream invasions, which means he is aware that this technology exists and has had experience using it. Why, then, when he wakes up on the plane, does he not remember everything as having actually happened for all intents and purposes in the same way the team does? Why does he simply look as though he's just woken up from a very strange dream when he really ought to know full well that it was not "just a dream"?
Answer: While Fischer is trained to deal with extractors, he is not an expert like Cobb. He has not been under the influence of the machine more then a few times, and he probably hasn't used one for some considerable time. Cobb even flat out says it: It takes years of practice.

Factual error: In the water tank sequence, Lamont takes a breath through one of the bullet holes. At more than five feet below the surface of water, the human diaphragm cannot push against the water pressure surrounding the chest, making it impossible to take a breath normally. Lamont should not have been able to draw breath at that depth.
