Unrequited - S4-E16

Revealing mistake: The handle and latch next to the supposedly working intercom on the chain-link security gate entrance to the "White Hand" facility is obviously non-functioning - when the gate is opened it can be seen there are no functional operating parts.

xx:xx:xx

Leonard Betts - S4-E12

Factual error: When Scully is performing the autopsy on Leonard Betts' severed head, she states "As remains are incomplete, all observations refer to a decapitated head." This phrasing is redundant. The proper terminology would be "disembodied head." As a medical doctor, Scully should know this.
