Season 2 generally

Revealing mistake: Throughout Series 2 Eve's reptilian hand is a glove made out of rubber and you can tell whenever she bends her wrist and the "skin" twists and wrinkles. An obvious example of this is in Episode 6 when she has finished going through "Accelerated Learning" and removes the listening device, bending her wrist and the glove in the process.
