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

The Deadly Toys Affair - S2-E9

Plot hole: Solo hopes that Elfie can fly the helicopter they're about to escape in. Why? It's a standard-issue helicopter: nothing special. Did both he and Illya, who've flown many 'copters in previous episodes, suddenly forget how? (00:46:50)

The Alexander the Greater Affair (1) - S2-E1

Plot hole: Bad guys tie lousy knots. Solo's bonds at the end are so loose that he easily slips his feet free to stop the swinging blade. And the rope across his chest does nothing to pinion his elbows or lower arms. He could have reached up with his hands to catch the blade at any time. (00:44:30)

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? (00:07:25)

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. (00:25:55)
