Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Season 1, episode 1 (Pilot): While Gaby and Carlos are arguing in their house, we can see a sofa and some other items in a semi-circular alcove with five tall windows on the far wall of the front room, and a painting near the stairs. A minute later, Carlos leaves and Gaby is alone with John, and the room has changed drastically. The alcove is now a flat wall with two windows and a fireplace. The sofa and some other things are missing and the painting moved to above the fireplace. This inconsistency exists because after the pilot was filmed, the set was redesigned and the part of John Rowland was recast. The scenes with John were reshot after the redesign took place, but the majority of this episode, including the first half of this scene (the argument), used the original footage.

Who's that Woman? - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: At one point in episode 1.2 ("Ah, But Underneath"), Susan looks at the note used to blackmail Mary Alice and we can see that it has been folded twice and become somewhat crumpled. Two episodes later in "Who's That Woman?" (1.4) when the girls show the note to Paul, it is almost perfectly smooth with a single horizontal crease.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: On the note Mary Alice receives that leads to her suicide, the position of the three sentences changes throughout the series. In episode 1.1 (Pilot), all three lines are written on the top half of the note (above the crease), but in later episodes the first two lines are on the top and the third is on the lower half. The left margin also gets smaller, and the handwriting varies slightly.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Gaby and John are in her bedroom talking, she takes a drag from her cigarette while John asks why she isn't happy, but never exhales the smoke from that drag. 23 seconds pass from that drag to the next one and she's in frame the entire time (it cuts between shots of the two of them together and Gaby's close-ups, but doesn't cut away from her). It's also worth noting that Gaby is never seen smoking again at any other point in the series and no explanation is given as to why.
