Errors and ExplanationsEdit

Internet Movie DatabaseEdit

Character errorEdit

  1. Nadia says she does not consider herself Russian, but Estonian. However, her character has an ethnic Russian name and speaks Russian without an Estonian accent. (The actress Nadia Gray was herself Romanian.) Nadia could be pretending, in order to lull Number 6 into a false sense of security.
