2 plot holes in The Phoenix Saga (2): The Dark Shroud

(2 votes)

The Phoenix Saga (2): The Dark Shroud - S3-E4

Plot hole: After Professor X crashes his mini-jet onto the hospital roof and loses consciousness, he isn't discovered until Jean mentally locates him. An aircraft crashing on the roof would cause enough noise to immediately alert staff and anyone else in the hospital of his predicament. (00:09:15 - 00:15:45)

The Phoenix Saga (2): The Dark Shroud - S3-E4

Plot hole: Wolverine's enhanced sense of smell should have alerted him to Erik the Red's spy on the roof. Failing that, the video feed Erik the Red is receiving from the spy shows Wolverine, Beast and Professor X looking right in the spy's direction, so they would have seen him. (00:15:55)

Slave Island - S1-E7

Plot hole: After Storm's attempt to escape the Genoshan prison is thwarted, she ends up in the ocean right at the shoreline of the beach, where she is captured by a Sentinel. Aside from the fact that it makes no sense for a Sentinel to be hiding in the ocean in the event that a mutant tries to escape the prison, there is absolutely no way that a two-story tall robot could hide in the ocean right by the beach, as the water would be way too shallow. You can even see that the water level only goes up to the Sentinel's ankle area when it is standing upright in the ocean. (00:03:15)

Red Dawn - S2-E4

Question: Does anyone know what the Russian writing says on the wall behind Omega Red when he is standing at the podium and talking about the return of the Soviet Union? (00:15:08)

Chosen answer: It says MPO "First Exemplary Printing House" which is a real printing company in Russia founded by Ivan Dmitrievich Sytin in 1889. There seems to be something about "named after..." as well.
