The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (1964)

2 plot holes in The Waverly Ring Affair

The Waverly Ring Affair - S2-E19

Plot hole: Waverly installs the explosive ring on Solo's finger and arms it, then says, "No one is to know you've been issued a priority ring." Odd command. It's a huge and conspicuous gold and red ring that he can't take off, and everyone at U.N.C.L.E. knows what it is. So how can Solo possibly keep it a secret?

The Waverly Ring Affair - S2-E19

Plot hole: U.N.C.L.E.'s yellow badges were worn only inside HQ, and were supposed to set off alarms if you didn't wear one, or if they were taken from the building. But here, Solo passes through security and walks out with his badge still on, and the alarms don't sound.

Mistakes

Solo blows open the ceiling vent of Illya and Marion's cell, and she stands on Illya's shoulders until Solo can reach her and pull her out. This leaves Illya with nothing/no one to stand on, no way to reach the vent and no apparent way out of the cell. But he's out just the same in the next scene, with no explanation as to how.

Trivia

"The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'s" original working title was "Solo," and its lead character was named for a spy with a minor role in one of Ian Fleming's early Bond novels. U.N.C.L.E. producer Norman Felton had a handshake agreement with Fleming to use the name and to develop "Solo" as a TV spy series. But the Bond film franchise had other ideas, reneged on the agreement on Fleming's behalf, and sued, forcing the title change. Felton prevailed only in retaining the character's name: Napoleon Solo.
