Genres: Crime, Drama, Mystery, Thriller

The British Invasion - S2-E12

New this week Plot hole: If the police pulled Doakes' fingerprints from the gas after the explosion, wouldn't they have found Lila's too? Also, you never hear about Lila from the police again. Don't you think after Deb kicks her out of Miami and then finds out she burned the place down that they would have tried to find her? Especially if her prints were in the cabin.

Do You See What I See? - S7-E11

New this month Continuity mistake: Deb's daily drive is an E46 '03-'06 BMW 3 series. In this episode she is in a car accident and when Dexter shows up at the salvage yard to check the vehicle he is led to an E36 '95-'99 3 series.

Let's Give the Boy a Hand - S1-E4

Factual error: When Dexter and Doakes are looking at the severed foot wearing a soccer cleat, Dexter states, "The foot was severed between the tarsus and the metatarsus." However, the foot was severed proximal to the tarsus, through the tibia and fibula. The cut was easily too high to be between the tarsus and metatarsus.

Helter Skelter - S7-E9

Factual error: In the beginning while Dexter is on his boat in Miami, you suddenly see mountains in the background, of which there are none in Miami. Also the palms are too high, indicating they are from California. And the worst setting mistake is the Florida tags in front of the cars. Only commercial vehicles have front tags.

Dirty Harry - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Dexter listens to Officer Lundy's tape recording, we hear Lundy say that the Trinity killer's weight is 190 to 200 pounds. When we saw him recording that, he said 200 to 220 pounds.

Let's Give the Boy a Hand - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Doakes is about to be killed by Guerrero, the police save him by shooting Guerrero, giving him a bullet wound on his right shoulder. He is also cuffed on the ground to be arrested. However, when he is pulled up, Guerrero does not have a bullet wound anymore.

See-Through - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: As the camera pans to Dexter just before he jumps over the fence at the police station, the shadow of a boom mike is visible on the white wall.

See-Through - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When the wife of one of the victims invites Angel in, the silhouette of a camera man is reflected in the door when she closes it.

Blinded By the Light - S4-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When they are at the crime scene, you can plainly see the camera and camera man reflected in Special Agent Lundy's sunglasses several times. When it is a close up shot, it is even more obvious.

Easy as Pie - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When they are having dinner at the Mexican guy's house his wife drops a glass and you hear it shatter. She set 2 other glasses on the island in the kitchen. After a cut to another shot the 2 glasses are on the counter by the sink. She bends down and picks up the glass she dropped. It is no longer broken and sounds like plastic when she sets it on the counter.

Season 6 generally

Continuity mistake: In Season 6, Episode 10, Dexter and Harry are in the motel room where Travis was staying (timestamp 1). Dexter decides to post on Gellar's blog (impersonating Gellar), and the screen on the computer shows the post date as Sunday, November 24, preceded by a Sunday, November 20 post. Aren't Sundays supposed to be a week apart? Then in episode 12 (timestamp 2), Travis is in Dexter's apartment and sees the poster for the Noah's Ark school play. The date posted for the play is Saturday, October 8, ie. in the past compared to the earlier episode. Plus If November 24 were on a Sunday, then October 8 should have been on a Tuesday.

Dexter mistake picture

Hello, Dexter Morgan - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: When Dexter is killing Stan Beaudry, the drop of Beaudry's blood encompasses the width of the blood slide when the two pieces of the slide are pressed together, but then goes to being roughly half the size when the shot changes.

Make Your Own Kind of Music - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: Scene with Deb and Joey having lunch. Their water glasses switch between having ice and lemon wedges, to having no ice and a lemon slice floating at the top.

Shrink Wrap - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Doakes asks Deb "what took her so long" arriving at the first crime scene, Masuka is stood next to him. However, over the course of the conversation Masuka is seen in the background talking to another group inside the house, and in the next shot he is standing back next to Doakes. At the end of the conversation he walks over to the group inside the house.

Left Turn Ahead - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Doakes is carrying the packs of cocaine out of the cabin, the position of his arms and the cocaine varies wildly from shot to shot. Notable examples are that the cocaine goes from being arranged in neat, accurate stacks, to being haphazardly and irregularly stacked, and back to neat again. His grip on the cocaine also varies a lot; he starts out with straight arms, then suddenly has a 90-degree bend at the elbows, and back to straight again, all depending om camera angle. All of these changes happen too fast to have been natural, and Doakes is on camera the whole time.

Father Knows Best - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Dexter goes to the morgue to see the body of his father. When he first sees the body, he bends down, and the clock behind him reads 4:11. A moment later when he stands back up the clock is at 4:17. A couple of minutes later the clock is at 4:01.

The Big One - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When Dex gets the phone-call from the city archives he steals a red Pontiac Grand Am GT. When he crashes it at the camp it's a badly-painted orange Chevrolet.

Blinded By the Light - S4-E3

Revealing mistake: When Deb is texting "Looks like it" to Anton, the buttons she presses on the keypad do not correlate with the message itself and the phone doesn't show any auto-correct feature being utilized, indicating that the text message was added in post production.

Born Free - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Rudy's body is found by the police, you can see Rudy breathing and his pulse in his neck.

Crocodile - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dexter and his sister find the ice truck parked on the side of a busy road, you can see that the truck is a side loader, meaning it has doors on the sides. This is also the truck that Dexter saw in episode 1. This truck however turns into a back loader in the next shot when they enter the truck. They roll up the door and go in the back, even though the truck does not have a back door. Also about the truck, Dexter says that it is running to keep the back refrigerator cold, however this type of unit plugs in at night to cool it down and the metal plates inside keep it cold not the engine.

Isaak Sirko: You didn't kill Victor out of vengeance. I have a feeling you're a different kind of animal. The question is...what kind are you, Dexter Morgan?
Dexter: The kind who hunted your friend down and strapped him to a board and put a plastic bag on his head and crushed his skull with a fire extinguisher. The kind who's gonna do the same thing to you, give or take the fire extinguisher.
