* The flashback of Frank and Len as babies. If they weren't born as Siamese twins, then did someone stitch them together? That's more horrifying than anything explicitly said in the show.

* Why did they have Misery's family reunion be [[AllJustaDream all just a dream]], exactly? Was it just to make Misery a more dawww-filled character? And are those relatives of hers still even alive? The whole episode, while awesome, left on a strange and unsatisfactory note, for seemingly no reason at all.

** I think that's the same guy from Broken Records, episode twenty of the first season. No idea why he'd still be doing it though...

*** Weel, that's a NoTrueScotsman if I ever hear one, since the issue was "never show Ruby Gloom in the U.S.", not "never air it on generally-available U.S.-based stations". Plenty of "TV channels" these days are only available with a subscription and allow you to watch their shows any time you want, and there are some Canadian stations (not sure about Ruby Gloom's publisher) that can be viewed in the U.S. And Netflix ''is'' U.S.-based, I've seen plenty of people in Canada and South America[[hottip:*: I'm not lumping Central America in with South America, I just haven't seen complaints from there, oddly enough]] complaining that their version of Netflix doesn't have enough of the things the U.S. version has.

** The guillotine is... A guillotine! For decoration, I guess? The hammer might have been the same hammer that flung Ruby across the carnival, and Mr. Mumbles was... I don't know, testing to see if it was too strong? If anyone knows better, I'd appreciate some enlightenment.

** In an early episode (while teaching Scaredy Bat to fly), Iris told Frank and Len to move over about three feet and, based on how far they moved (and assuming [[TwoOfYourEarthMinutes they're human feet]]), the humanoid characters are about five to six feet tall, give or take a little less than half a foot (so, about the normal range for adult humans). I figure their group just includes [[RichIdiotWithNoDayJob one or more Rich Idiots With No Day Job]], and/or are trust fund kids.

I ascribe to the former theory, and while I don't believe the latter it seems kind of plausible.
