Folks, let's talk about plot holes.

It's a cliche at this point to make fun of nerds and their (gasp) attention to detail, it's a simple fact that immersive fiction work best when the story makes sense inside its own established universe. By laying out clear rules and sticking to them, audiences can understand the stakes even when accounting for fantastical elements such as space travel, superpowers, and magic. So when even BELOVED series just decide to not give a damn about their OWN RULES, that's worth a callout. Over on the r/askreddit board people were compelled to share the contradictory moments that ruined stories that they otherwise enjoyed.
