Leadside - S4-E23

Plot hole: Leadside brings the exact question up in this episode and it never gets answered: who's driving the van?

Shock It to Me - S4-E22

Plot hole: Zharko's process of using the dead bodies of agents and reviving them could only work if he had them at about at most a day after they were killed. Since his secret lab is on a deserted island in the middle of nowhere, they could not have got the bodies to him in time. The Chief also said that the bodies suffered severe damage, so their ability to move would be seriously hindered, but they work fine.

Closely Watched Planes - S4-E3

Factual error: If there really was a hatch leading into mid-air in the airplane bathroom, instead of being soundless like shown, it would be incredibly loud and Max would have noticed. Also, the sudden pressure change would have sucked him out no matter what he did to stop it.

Schwartz's Island - S4-E13

Revealing mistake: Siegfried uses the magnet to push the ship away from the island. However, you can see the scene is reversed; the steam from the ship is going back into the funnel.

Schwartz's Island - S4-E13

Revealing mistake: When Max accidentally shoots the life raft with the flare gun, he visibly doesn't make a hole in the raft. It's likely it's ink or ash or another black material to look like the raft had a hole burned through it.

School Days - S1-E3

Max: When the moon is full, the tide is high.
Old Lady: You must want the spy school, that's next door.
