Magnum Opus - S8-E13

New this month Character mistake: At the end the murderer says Van Gogh only sold two paintings before he died. Van Gogh only had one of his paintings sell before he died.

A Real Rain - S1-E17

Character mistake: In the initial meeting at FBI headquarters, the agents mention the Zodiac killer. Gideon says about him "Yeah, and he killed for 30 years without being caught." In actuality, the Zodiac's known victims were killed between 1966 and 1970. In letters to the public, Zodiac claimed responsibility for several other murders (most of which were solved without being attributed to Zodiac), but no later than 1974. Gideon's statement was off by at least 22 years.

Derailed - S1-E9

Factual error: The train car in which Elle and the other passengers are held hostage is supposed to be an Amtrak type long distance railroad car traveling from El Paso to Dallas, yet on the inside of the car we can see a large poster showing the Washington, DC Metro system map.

Machismo - S1-E19

Factual error: In this episode Gideon mentions Andrei Chikatilo, and says that he lived in Ukraine (and that this is why he remained uncaught for so long). While Chikatilo was born in Ukraine, he lived in Russia for most of his life, and all of his murders happened here. An expert like Gideon should not make this kind of mistake.

The Angel Maker - S4-E2

Other mistake: At the start, it's nighttime when the unsub hides in the house of the soon-to-be victim who goes to sleep when her alarm clock reads 'Tue 11:06', and then we see the time morph to 'Tue 1:13' when the victim is sound asleep, before the unsub comes out of the closet to kill her. However, the time on the clock should actually read 'Wed 1:13.'.

Damaged - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: At the start of this episode Rossi tells Garcia about the case he's obsessed with, "It's the 20th anniversary of this crime. Twenty years tomorrow, three children woke up and found their parents murdered." However, during S3xE11 "Birthright," while working on their current Wilkinson case, Rossi shows Caulfield (the sheriff of the original Wilkinson case from 1980) the victim's charm bracelet he carries, then tells him about the Indianapolis case he's never forgotten, and how every year since then he's called the victims' children. And later, after Caulfield tells Rossi it's been 27 years since his own unsolved case, he asks Rossi how long it's been for him and Rossi says, "21," then Caulfield cautions, "Don't let it get to 22."

Birthright - S3-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When Prentiss, Morgan, Rossi, and Caulfield go see Mary Wilkinson, in the wide shot just as Caulfield says, "Hello, Mary," the second camera filming from another angle is visible at the right side of the screen. Additionally, later when Chrissy confronts Charlie she's wearing one earring in her right ear, but after she shoots him that one earring is in her left ear.

The Tribe - S1-E16

Proof - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When Cy sneaks into the house with the key under the mat, in the bedroom he picks up the triple gold frame with two photos of Matt with Lyla and one photo of young Lyla in the blue dress in the center frame, then he holds it to his face and places it back on the right side of the dresser. However, after Cy hears Lyla coming into the house, when she sees the underwear on the bedroom floor the frame on the right side of the dresser is now a double wood frame with only one of the same photos seen earlier.

All That Remains - S8-E14

Revealing mistake: When Agent Hotchner receives a text from JJ while interviewing the suspect, it is actually a screenshot. You can see Camera Roll in the upper left hand corner, "2 of 2" where JJ's name should be, and the Share/Play/Delete banner at the bottom. It is covered by Agent Hotchner quickly tapping on the screen to clear the banners.

A Thousand Suns - S10-E3

Continuity mistake: The original plane is a 747, (four engines on the wings, two aisles). The plane that Reid gets the plans for is a 727 tri-jet (three engines on the tail and one aisle, not wide body). The plane in the walk through by Reid is a wide body of some sort, but not a 747 (two aisles with three seats in the middle).

The Caller - S9-E10

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, a St Louis couple has reported their son missing. At the FBI briefing, the agents are told that the boy's mother tucked him in at 10:00pm. A few minutes later, we hear the radio call over footage of police at the home, and the dispatcher says "Last seen at 2100." That's 9:00pm, not 10:00pm.

Nightguy

No Way Out - S2-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When George is talking about the school bus, you can see the shadow from a microphone in the bottom left hand corner.

Profiler, Profiled - S2-E12

Character mistake: Derek Morgan says that he discovered the body of a dead boy in 1991 when he was 15 years old. Later on, you see Garcia searching the computer for personal info on Derek Morgan. According to the computer; Derek Morgan was born in 1973 which would make him 18 years old in 1991, not 15.

The Popular Kids - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Gideon talks to Cherish's mother we see him start to walk toward the rest of the team. In the wide shot we see Reid standing with his hands in his pockets and jacket open, we then see him close his jacket and cross his arms as Gideon gets closer, but in the very next shot (the close up on Reid) we see his jacket open and his arms at his side once more.

Blood Hungry - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gideon realizes the unsub is a cannibal, Garcia enters the office behind him and shuts the door. In the next shot, the door is wide open.

About Face - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Senior SSA David Rossi is clean-shaven in the beginning and middle of the episode. Toward the end of the episode, which takes place over mere days, he has magically grown a full mustache and beard which disappears and reappears in the last scenes.
