*** After Goodkat shoots [[spoiler:Lindsey]], it seems like FridgeLogic that he doesn't bother to check whether his victim is truly dead. But here's where the FridgeBrilliance kicks in: most likely Goodkat '''does''' see that [[spoiler:Lindsey]] is still alive, but seeing this makes him realize that [[spoiler:Slevin had warned her about the hit. At that moment Goodkat knows that Slevin must really love Lindsey for him to disobey his mentor like this, and that's what makes him spare Lindsey: he can relate to Slevin's feelings for Lindsey, because similar empathy made him spare Slevin 20 years ago. So after processing all this in his head, Goodkat slips away from the morgue, letting Lindsey think she has fooled him.]] This also explains why, after [[spoiler:Slevin]] asks Goodkat how he found about [[spoiler:Slevin's plan to spare Lindsey]], Goodkat just says: "I'm a world class assassin". A world class assassin wouldn't just shoot someone once and leave, without checking out the victim really is dead.
* [[spoiler:Though it takes a second watching to pick up, there are 3 very subtle clues as to Slevin's identity; 1. Henry is seen playing with a ''baseball mitt'' and ''is promised a trip to a baseball game''; 2. A bookie is killed by ''a very fast, very well aimed baseball'', suggesting the killer ''is probably a big fan of the sport''; 3. When Slevin is told to ''play ball'', in a quick and literal-minded fashion, he quips ''"You think I'm tall enough?"'', suggesting ''he has a ball sport on his mind.'']]
** #1 and #2 combined there is enough to make it extremely obvious on their own to some.
