Plot hole: After Noah stabs Lucius, Ivy is brought to see Noah who is locked up in the "quiet room". As they leave, the lock is being placed on the latch to lock Noah in, and soon after the door is rattling, presumably Noah in an attempt to open it. If you look closely, you can see that the rattling occurs because the door lock is locked and not because of the lock on the latch. Quite strange, as we clearly see the lock placed on the latch right after the door is closed. There could not possibly have been time for the door lock to be locked with a key.
Continuity mistake: When Ivy finds Lucius stabbed on the floor, she is wearing a clean white dress. The dress remains white even after she is rushed away by Mr. Walker. In the next scene, Ivy's dress is covered in blood near her waist, as if Lucius' blood got on her when she bent down to his aid.
Ivy Walker: Sometimes we don't do things we want to do so that others will not know we want to do them.
Trivia: When the floor is torn up and Noah has escaped, there are bird feathers everywhere. Next scene when Noah is in the hole and there are bird feathers everywhere as well. Toward the beginning of the movie when Ivy, Noah, and Lucius are at the resting rock, Noah pulls berries out of his pocket. Attached to the berries momentarily are feathers, they fall to the ground almost unnoticeable. I believe that possibly MNS wanted to give the hint that Noah already had access to the monster costume. It is also possible that Noah picked them up in the woods when he found the berries. I am leaning toward the first explanation.
Question: What is the significance of the dead 7-year old boy in the opening scene of the movie? Does it have anything to do with the 7-year old mentioned on Shyamalan's newspaper?
