Goofs

Ressler's face is scratched in the Molly House by one of the "ladies" on the left side of his face. When they are in front of the Swedish bakery, the scratches are on the right side of his face. At the docks, when Ressler is talking to Reid, the three scratches are back on the right side of his face. This was obviously done so they can be seen from the camera angle. See more »
