*** Not to mention that Tina at that moment realized that Jacob was the one who had the suitcase. Meaning that instead of reporting that a No-Maj was going around New York and unknowingly carrying a case full of magical creatures, ''she chose to stay quiet and not do anything about it until the very last minute''.

[[folder: Mary Lou taking in Credence]]
* The Second Salemers believe that witches exist and live among Muggles. I assume from Mary Lou's comments about Credence's mother being "a wicked, unnatural woman" that Mary Lou knows she was a witch and that Credence is a wizard. So does she taken in Credence and other children to abuse them in the hope of getting rid of their magic, like Uncle Vernon wanted to do? What's her motivation?

* Why does MACUSA use a phoenix to decorate their official seal, instead of an animal that's native to the Americas? In-universe, phoenixes hail from places like Egypt and India...Even if you ignore its importance within the film, why not use something like a Thunderbird instead?

Those seem to be native to the deserts of Arizona, are important creatures in many Native American legends, and are related to phoenixes, anyhow.

** Anyone who's been in New York in the summer knows how humid the air itself becomes. In a strong thunderstorm like they showed, where steady rain persists for hours, the water would be evaporating and permeating the very air they were all breathing. Presumably only no-maj were affected, or else the Obliviators making repairs would have forgotten what they were doing, so Jacob was the only main character doomed to lose his memories, and since he was still right there with the others, in the middle of a conversation, ''and'' he really didn't want to forget, it took a more direct dose for him to forget completely.

** [[spoiler]] Adding to my original comment about Grindelwald not thinking that he was defeated, many have commented that Grindelwald used wandless magic for the most part because of the likely chance that Graves's wand did not switch his allegience to him. Tina confiscated Graves's wand from Grindelwald. Do we know the rules of what happens when a witch or wizard is disarmed when not using their personal wands? Would the Elder Wand consider that as a defeat? Probably not. It's also very likely that Grindelwald has the Elder Wand hidden somewhere on his person, so he's not truly disarmed/defeated and likely used it to break out of prison/custody. Even if he didn't have the Elder Wand in person, there's still a chance that he kept his old wand and likewise used that to escape.

*** Nevermind, according to various sources, Chastity didn't survive the events of the film. She was killed by Credence's Obscurus at the same time Mary Lou was.

** Consider how Harry was still considered a half-blood even though both his parents were magic, presumably because his mother was a Muggle-born. There are undoubtedly still magical children born to No-Majs in America, so their offspring would be considered half-bloods in much the same way.
