I was told by some readers that they do not understand the character behavior in this section of my story, and think it's a plot hole. Basically what happens is, is that a cop is assigned to survey a woman's house, because they believe that she is likely the target of a serial killer type character, who is after her. This is plot hole #1 as I was told that they would assign two cops, but for the story I want, I think one works better, and you read why in a bit. The police cannot get her protection away at a safe house or anything just yet, so the cops are assigned to watch her house, one officer per shift. So the cop is watching the house at night, and he notices that all the power to the house goes off at the same time. He goes to have a closer look and notices that someone with a flashlight is looking throughout the house for her. He knows she is home cause he saw her go in earlier in the story. He calls for back up and then goes to the door. Seeing that the figure with the flashlight may be advancing his way looking for in the window, he kicks in the door, and looks around to save her. Or if kicking in the door is bad, he can try to get in another way? He announces that he is the police and comes in. This is plot hole #2 I was told, as no cop would attempt to save someone this way, without waiting for back up to arrive I was told. It's just too dangerous. But I thought he would be compelled to try to save her cause the danger may be immediate? Then when he looks around the house with his own flashlight, the woman then knocks him out with something, and takes his gun. He says he is a cop. The woman said she heard him announce before but thought it was the killer who broke in, since the power was cut and the door broken into after. She didn't know he was a cop, and thought that him announcing it, could be a lie that the killer was saying. It was actually her who had the flashlight while looking around, since her power was cut, but he thought it may have been the killer perhaps. Once another cop arrives to explain things, the two cops decide not to arrest her for hitting the officer. They figure it was a misunderstanding and she thought the cop very well could have been the killer breaking in, so what's the point of arresting her, when it will just come out as a misunderstanding anyway. This is plot hole #3 I was told as no cop would NOT arrest someone for hitting them in the head, even if in a situation where the cop was simply mistaken for an intruder. The second cop who also responds as back up, is off duty at the time, and he only answers because he was nearby in the area. I wanted him to be off duty for the plot to go in directions later that requires him to be, but I was told that this is plot hole #4 and he would leave it someone else. What do you think? Do you these count as plot holes, like the readers interpret them as and do I need to rewrite a lot of the story? Thanks for your input. I really appreciate it.
