  • The shoe scene. It is frequently referenced up to now that her feet are an odd shape. But c'mon, how was it that a woman trained in a shoe department would not immediately look at the shape of her feet, and rather than recommending her to Amishtown, immediately suggest open toed sandals? These are technically shoes but don't hurt the webs.
    • Because her feet would stick out of the sandals, unless they were custom made, and quite a few sandals are designed to grip with the toes, which is impossible for Selkie.
  • Why would grown adults some of whom who are medically trained, and experienced with hunting sea life for food, not know the difference between an octopus and fish? They're pretty much totally different.
    • Because, for Selkie's people, the word "Fish" translates to "Delicious Food thing".
