When Grace contacts Luke and then logs off, her logout message only says BLACKWIDOW, not BLACKWIDOW-4-U, even though her text message said "BLACKWIDOW-4-U Says".
There are several medical errors with the description of Olive's "middle cerebral stroke." A stroke that caused weakness in the right arm would affect speech as well, since such a stroke occurs in the left side of the brain, causing asphasia. But Olive's speech is unaffected. Middle cerebral strokes also don't paralyze the lower half of the body - they affect either the right side or the left side. A middle cerebral stroke wouldn't cause a collapse and unconsciousness. The type of stroke necessary to induce lower-body paralysis would render someone unconscious, but it would be for hours if not days.
