Fridge / Salt

Fridge Brilliance
  • In the beginning, Evelyn Salt is shown to be extremely worried about her husband's wellbeing. We later find out that she wasn't faking it. Because of him, she stopped her mission to kill the Russian Prime Minister, even though she knew that she wasn't supposed to marry someone unless it would achieve their goals. So when she found out that Orlov had her husband, she had to pretend to kill the Russian Prime Minister and succeed her mission so she could gain Orlov's trust and get her husband's location to rescue him, but things didn't go the way she planned...
Fridge Logic
  • At the start of the movie, Orlov manages to escape the CIA by killing two agents in the elevator with a knife concealed in his shoe. Wouldn't the CIA have checked for things like that when they brought an enemy spy in to be questioned?
