Fans of NBC’s thriller The Blacklist spotted a glaring factual mistake from season two, which involved Tom Keen (played Ryan Eggold) long before his heartbreaking death. In the episode which dropped one of the biggest revelations on the season, viewers were instead distracted by the plot hole.

One fan took to and exposed the glaring blunder from the episode titled ‘The Major.’

In the episode where Tom Keen was in Germany watching an arms deal, the fan spotted the mistake and wrote: “The supposedly German plates of the BMW read ‘DD17-36F9.’

“This, however, is not a possible combination in Germany, as there would not be numbers in the first half, nor a letter after a number in the second part.

“Exceptions from the first being the most important officials’ cars like the federal president’s, but even then the latter applies.

“Furthermore, no more than 4 numbers can be used, except for in police and military vehicles (which also never have a letter after a number, and start ‘Y’ for military, or ‘DD-Q’ for Dresden police).

The viewer added: “‘DD-F1736’ would have been a correct plate for the town of Dresden, for example.”

This was a big enough error to distract the viewer, however only fans who were knowledgeable on international registration plates would notice the mistake.

During the episode, fans were treated to one of the biggest revelations of season two, which gave viewers a more in-depth insight into Tom.

The episode opened with a flashback scene, which showed a young boy being chased through the streets with a handbag in hand.

He then jumped into a vehicle where a man was waiting for him, who then proceeded to offer the boy a job.

When the boy who doubted his abilities, questioned the opportunity the mysterious man responded: “Your delinquent inclinations are exactly what makes you valuable.”

Tom then appeared in the next scene which made viewers realise he was the young boy who took the opportunity and went from a delinquent orphan to the master of manipulation.

Red was well aware of Tom’s abilities which is why he was responsible for initially hiring Tom to spy on Liz Keen (Megan Boone) way before he turned on Red after Berlin offered a higher price.

This revelation was unveiled during a conversation with the Major, which later sparked a discussion with Dembe Zuma (Hisham Tawfiq).

Dembe encouraged Red to confess everything to Liz, however, he chose not to and claimed he didn’t think he could, which Dembe highlighted was his problem – he shouldn’t think, he should just do it.

While this is a major plot hole truthfully it joins the list of a number of blunders viewers have spotted throughout the series.

Another error fans exposed happened in season one when Liz suffered injuries during an enemy pursuit in the episode titled ‘Ivan’.

She was chasing a cyber-terrorist when she leapt through a train, which resulted in dreadful injuries, however, eagle-eyed fans noticed the injuries disappeared as the episode continued.

As the series is nine seasons in, it’s evident viewers are able to put aside the frequent blunder and remain hooked by the thrilling storylines.

The Blacklist season nine continues Thursdays on NBC.
