Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Her Negotiation - S14-E24

Plot hole: Although William Lewis burns his fingertips in an attempt to avoid identification, the Special Victims Unit could have identified him early on by examining the remaining unburned area of Lewis' hands, and in good police procedure still record the newly scarred fingerprints, as these new scars actually make his fingerprints more unique. His scarred fingerprints would still be at Alice's apartment crime scene, and during the trial at the end of the episode the prosecution would still have a strong argument for placing Lewis at Alice's apartment, even if the DNA evidence is thrown out because of alleged cross contamination.

Post-Mortem Blues - S15-E21

Plot hole: M.E. Warner explains of Lewis and Benson "both their fingerprints are on the gun." Lewis burned his off in a particularly gruesome scene a few episodes earlier. (It was at the beginning of his arc). Only Benson's should be on her gun.

Trivia

They decide to scare him and put him in a cupboard without any light. This is very similar to Doug Hutchinson's character in The Green Mile. The main characters decide to punish him and force him into a dark and small room.
