New this month 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.
New this month 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.
New this month 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dexter is playing a video game on Miguel's office computer, Miguel is shown to close the game down. But in the next shot the game is visible on the screen before disappearing again in the shot afterwards. Additionally, the video game shown is Halo 3, which is only available on Xbox 360. When Miguel 'closes' the game, he is actually alt-tabbing from a "TWVidpla" window to "Plaindesktop.bmp," and a laptop battery indicator is visible.
