Pattie Sue Edwards (No. 68) - S5-E15

Character mistake: When Aram wears the CDC hazmat suit, the CDC personnel advises Aram that he has 20 minutes of air to keep him alive, making the mission time critical. What she says additionally is that "oxygen levels plummet and carbon monoxide (CO) levels rise" CO is not a byproduct of human respiration - carbon dioxide is.

Ilyas Surkov (No. 54) - S5-E5

Factual error: Norfolk Naval Base is located on completely flat terrain and the areas around the base is devoid of trees in all directions for miles. The scene shows the ship with a tree-filled hillside across the water. Obviously the scene was not shot in Norfolk, VA. (00:32:08)

Abraham Stern (No. 100) - S5-E11

Character mistake: Reddington says that the 1943 pennies he is hunting are special because they were made of bronze when all other pennies were made of copper. The 1943 pennies were actually the steel pennies from WWII as to save copper for the war efforts, there were some copper errors that year, but the majority were zinc and not copper.

The Corsican (No. 20) - S6-E2

Question: When Ressler is trying to find the elusive Constantine, why don't they radio descriptions such as (grey hair, sunglasses, blue blazer)? As he tends to the victim shot at UN, why does he not simultaneously radio for perimeter search with description? In same episode, Keen states how much "good" Red does as if defending him to her "sister" yet she then says she is the one who turned him in? Not logical. And besides, was it ever proven that the sister is in fact Liz's sister via DNA etc.? Not very good FBI work.
