Obviously we're as obsessed as it gets with Netflix's latest Harlan Coben series Stay Close. The thriller had us all completely hooked, and then totally thrown by *that* final twist, so it makes sense that fans are starting to go over all the series' tiny details to see just how we missed it. One thing that fans have spotted in all their sleuthing is a major Stay Close plot hole, and it's pretty hilarious.

The hit series follows three people living separate lives somehow linked by past crimes and sinister drama. Megan (Cush Jumbo), Ray (Richard Armitage) and Detective Broome (James Nesbitt) find their way back into each other's stories after a man named Carlton Flynn goes missing, and the trio are forced to take drastic action as the past comes back to haunt them.

While people were pretty instantly obsessed with the show's many twists and turns, given some time to reflect on it all some fans spotted a pretty major plot hole concerning main character Megan (previously known as Cassie).

As we know Megan once worked as a dancer at Vipers and at the time was called Cassie. After some *drama* she leaves her old world and begins a new suburban life as Megan. However, as some fans pointed out, it's kind of unsurprising that her old life catches up with her, since she doesn't seem to have left it that far behind...

Okay, all fair and constructive criticism, and a good learning curve for Megan's next disappearing act. But, our main focus right now is whether or not we'll get another Harlan Coben adaption anytime soon? Stay Close is Coben's latest Netflix adaptation, as part of his five-year deal with the streamer which has previously included The Stranger, Safe, and The Woods. Fingers crossed.
