the confusing plot hole in venom
There were plenty of logically baffling moments in Venom — the unexpected dip in the lobster tank; the post-credits scene; the “turd in the wind” line. But one significant plot hole stood out: the elderly Malaysian woman hosting the Riot symbiote.
As many fans pointed out, there’s a six-month time jump after the spaceship crashes. But despite symbiotes needing new hosts, the woman was still symbiote-laden, patiently waiting at the airport, six months on.
When confronted with the plot hole, director Ruben Fleischer could only concede the point. “Yeah, that’s a good question,” he told Gamespot. “That’s one of our few — hopefully few — logic bumps.” Back in the lobster tank with you!
