The Blacklist

The Blacklist (2013)

4 factual errors in season 2

The Major (No. 75) - S2-E15

Factual error: Tom Keene watches an arms deal. The supposedly German plates of the BMW read "DD17-36F9." This, however, is not a possible combination in Germany, as there would not be numbers in the first half, nor a letter after a number in the second part. [exceptions from the first being the most important officials' cars like the federal president's, but even then the latter applies.]. Furthermore, no more than 4 numbers can be used, except for in police and military vehicles (which also never have a letter after a number, and start "Y" for military, or "DD-Q" for Dresden police). "DD-F1736" would have been a correct plate for the town of Dresden, for example.

Monarch Douglas Bank (No. 112) - S2-E2

Factual error: Near the start it says "Warsaw, Poland", but the city shown on the image is not Warsaw, it is Budapest, the capital of Hungary,.

T. Earl King VI (No. 94) - S2-E14

Factual error: The German passport has a photograph loosely attached, this is not the case on a real European passport. It also has the American date format, but with correct European date separators.

The Mombasa Cartel (No. 114) - S2-E6

Factual error: The episode starts with a scene of a household in Koidu, Sierra Leone where a family is killed and boy taken. Mombasa is an island town on the coast of Kenya, not Sierra Leone. Mombasa wouldn't have a village or poachers or wild animals because it is an urban area. And Red later on reveals that the boy who was taken after the family was killed was actually Dembe, whom he found tied up in a brothel in Nairobi, which would again place them in Kenya, not Sierra Leone. Dembe would be an appropriate name for a person from Sierra Leone, not Mombasa.

Mistakes

As Reddington sets up the blood transfer between himself and Ressler he inserts the intravenous line in Ressler's arm first and then in his own arm. This is a big NO NO! This way the remaining air inside the line gets into the recipient's body and could very well kill him. Judging the expert way he handles the set up he should know to first insert the IV in his own arm, let the line fill with blood and then insert the IV in Ressler's arm.
