The Good Shepherd

Plot hole: Near the film's end, when Edward Sr.'s son, Edward Jr., is about to be married, Edward Sr. approaches his son looking very grim. He is about to tell his son that his fiancee has died. At this key moment, Edward's wife exclaims to her husband, "What have you done?!" Logically, this does not make sense, since Edward's wife, Margaret, has no knowledge (as far as the audience knows) of the Bay of Pigs leak made by her son, nor of her son's fiancee's spy role in obtaining the information. Without knowing this information, Margaret would have no reason to suspect that her husband was involved in some bad incident involving her son's fiancee.
