Plot hole: When the two henchmen who break into Nick's loft to kill Lisa are captured, the case is closed. But the two thugs were reporting back to a boss who wasn't caught, and who surely would have sent more hitmen after Lisa. So the case shouldn't have been closed.

Plot hole: Nat thinks Nick is becoming more human because he can see himself in the mirror, and he replies, "Only sometimes." This line contradicts series canon, as "Forever Knight" did not adhere to the vampires-don't-appear-in-mirrors cliché. Nick was seen to reflect very nicely, in fact, every time he passed a mirror, and not just "sometimes."

Plot hole: Near the end, a cop comes to tell Schanke that an explosion has been reported at Nick's place. But neither of the two intruders uses any explosives. One shoots his way in through a door and the other breaks in through a skylight. Neither makes enough noise for the disturbance to be called an explosion.
Plot hole: The insertion of a musical sequence used to fill extra time in this episode creates a plot problem. It's spliced in between Nick's urgent plea for Nat to stall the autopsy and his rescuing the bound and gagged Rebecca, and unfortunately makes it appear that in that interval, Nick simply went home, played music and sat in his loft window brooding, ignoring the case altogether.
Plot hole: Bullets, which have been passing harmlessly through Nick for two whole seasons, suddenly do him great injury here. And though he's taken to surgery, the bullet lodged in his head is never removed. It's still there on the latest x-ray when LaCroix arrives to "consult" with the doctor.
Plot hole: At the Precinct after the second spa incident, Captain Stonetree refers to "two unexplained reflex murders in one night." But the first victim survived the attack - so there was only one murder, not two. A little worse than a simple character mistake, since he's the police captain and knows the case. Schanke gets it right later, when he says, "One murder and one attempted murder."
Plot hole: In the morgue, Nick tells Nat that vampires disappear when they die. Not so in this series. "Forever Knight's" vampires, defying old movie clichés, remained stubbornly intact when staked, making Nick's statement here a glaring contradiction of canon.
Plot hole: In a major violation of series canon, this episode ends with the vampire doggie (a silly enough premise to begin with) bringing its owner across, a process previously established as complex enough to be far beyond even the smartest canine's capabilities.
Plot hole: In the underground bunker, Nick demands to know why the vampires in Vietnam are feeding on the children "when there are so many dead up there". Yet later in this same episode (as well as at other times in the series), it's stated that "Forever Knight's" vampires can't drink from the dead.

Plot hole: Because he has no discernible vital signs, the wounded Nick is declared dead in the hospital. When he revives, he's rushed into surgery, where he'd surely have been reattached to a monitor. Somehow, though, no one on the medical staff notices that their patient still has no normal pulse or heartbeat.
