The Host - S2-E2

Plot hole: Surprisingly, it takes the well-educated Scully quite a long time to realize that the tattoo on the victim's forearm is in Cyrillic lettering. (00:24:00)

Suggested correction: Cyrillic bears similarities to Greek, Slavic, Russian, and some Middle-Eastern lettering. Considering the tattoo was on the decomposing skin of a body that had been submerged in water, it's reasonable to assume it would be difficult for anyone to recognise. Also, nothing is ever mentioned about Scully's education to suggest she should have any particular knowledge about multi-cultural writing styles, the most we know is that she had a decent grasp of German.


Ascension (2) - S2-E6

Plot hole: How was Duane able to hit Scully through the window and blinds if she was standing some distance from the window? (00:01:25)

Little Green Men - S2-E1

Plot hole: At his arrival at the Arecibo observatory, Mulder crushes the padlock on the door leading to the control building, and then he finds the native man, Jorge, in the toilet, who hid himself in the building. There's no way Jorge could enter the building and also lock himself in there with the padlock. (00:17:45)
