Glass has a huge plot hole that threatens to undo everything the villain has worked so hard for during the trilogy.
WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, currently in theaters.
M. Night Shyamalan’s superhuman trilogy doesn’t focus so much on heroes, like the Avengers or the Justice League, but rather on vigilantes and villains who operate in the shadows. A glass crown what Unbreakable and To divide began by introducing a mental institution that tries to convince David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) that they are not superhuman.
Elijah, however, concocts a ploy to expose their existence to the world by pitting the Beast and David against each other. But in the end, they are killed by a squad led by Chief Psychiatrist Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson). As she tries to cover up the case A glass highlights a major and very silly plot hole that diminishes everything that came before it.
Ellie is part of the mysterious Clover organization (all members have a black clover tattoo on their body), whose role is to keep order in the world by ensuring that superhumans are nothing more than one myth. These watchdogs have been around for centuries, preventing these gods from roaming freely among men, either making them believe they are normal or killing them, which is the action ordered by Ellie in the finale of A glass.
However, after the superhumans died, Ellie simply asks the facility staff – dozens of employees, including guards who were beaten by the Beast – to simply shut up, and insisting that the climactic fight between David and the Beast was the result of drugs. . It’s a bit ridiculous, considering the two were taking massive hits, throwing police cars, throwing each other in the air, etc. It’s a battle of Supermen, only without theft. His organization has operated in the shadows for hundreds of years, leaving nothing to chance (which is why they to kill superhumans, if needed), so we have to wonder why Ellie would have bet everything Clover worked for on the hospital staff’s ability to keep a secret.

All it would take is leaked smartphone footage, or just one too many glass, for the superhumans to be exposed. Given the nature of Clover, it’s hard to see why witnesses aren’t drugged, killed, brainwashed, or even bribed. Ellie begging them to shut up is laughable. What is even more amazing is that she allows Elijah’s mother, David’s son Joseph, and Casey (the victim of the Beast of To divide) to break free, even though they saw what happened. Nothing prevents them from going to the authorities.
There’s a mind-boggling amount of points hanging around, especially when you add in the likely casualties the Beast left as he made his bloody way for Elijah’s escape. It is baffling that the meticulous psychiatrist simply asks the witnesses to remain a mom while she has a strobe light that could hypnotize Kevin and bring out different personalities, she studied David to find out his weakness, and she confined Elijah to prevent it. to play mind games with the Staff. Ellie doesn’t take any risks.

Sadly, his actions in the final act contradict what Clover stands for and explain why critics found it flawed. Ellie and Clover may have covered most of the bases, but their damage control needs a lot of work. For a film focused on secrecy, that’s high level amateurism.
In theaters now, director M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass stars James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb / The Beast, Bruce Willis as David Dunn, Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, Samuel L Jackson as Elijah Price / Mr. Glass and Sarah Paulson as Ellie Staple.
