And Those We Left Behind - S4-E6

Plot hole: The very ending scene where Peter (in this version died in the ice as a boy so Walter's wife never met him) takes off some of the dust covers then picks up a toy airplane. The toy airplane he got as a child from ... Walter's wife when she was trying to placate him in an earlier episode for trying to run "home". This toy airplane wouldn't have been his as a child in this version of the universe.

Unearthed - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Charlie, Olivia's former partner and friend in the FBI shows up in this episode during the interview with Mrs. Rusk, but Charlie was killed off by one of the shapeshifters in a previous episode, and the shapeshifter that killed Charlie was himself killed off by Olivia, who in other episodes reflected back on killing him.

The Box - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Walter tells Peter that the Cocabeans he bought can't be eaten, he takes the roasting pan off the bunsen burner. In the next shot, the pan is still on the burner.

Inner Child - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: This is when Olivia goes to visit the boy at the hospital the second time. She and the guy from Department of Social Services go outside to talk. One of the shots is flipped. Note Olivia's notepad and the heart monitor by his bed.

The Road Not Taken - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: At the very end of the episode when Nina Sharp exits the elevator, she mostly steps out of the elevator completely before the masked men come and shoot her. However, when they review the security footage of the attack in the next episode, "There's More than One of Everything," you see that she barely takes a step before being shot.

In Which We Meet Mr. Jones - S1-E7

Visible crew/equipment: During the shot where Walter is talking about Jimmy Hoffa while installing a light bulb, you can see the set and crew reflected on the metal part, including the audio coordinator with a boom mike.

The Equation - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: The shots of Peter and Walter entering St. Claire's are recycled shots from the pilot. You can tell because their clothes change.

Brad

The Ghost Network - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: The bullet hole in Davidson's chest is not at all where he was shot.

Brad

Night of Desirable Objects - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: When the typewriter is being used at the end, the keys being pressed don't correspond to the words appearing on the paper. Obvious from the start - the first letter pressed is on the middle row of the keyboard, but the first word typed is "unacceptable".

Jon Sandys

The End of All Things - S4-E14

Character mistake: When David Robert Jones pulls the little box with the lights out, Olivia says that she knows what she has to do, that she "has to turn the lights on with her mind." She knows this because her memory of him returned, but she didn't have to turn the lights on. In the original episode she had to turn them off.

Dream Logic - S2-E5

Factual error: When discussing whether Dr. Nayak's server could have been hacked, Agent Broyles says there was "no sign of a DDoS attack." A DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack is not a means of hacking into a server to alter data - it refers to flooding a web site with so many connections, through automated means, that legitimate visitors can't connect to it. It's a mode of attack that has no relevance to the situation they were discussing.

What Lies Below - S2-E13

Character mistake: When Walter is saying his father was a scientific pioneer at the university of Berlin, Peter reacts by saying: "Yeah, I know. Who came here in 1933, which is long before the Nazi's ever took power." In fact it is EXACTLY when the Nazi's took power: 30 January 1933.

The Cure - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: This episode takes place over one day. It's Olivia's birthday at the start of the episode, and at night, she gets the card from her stepfather, implying that it's still the same day. Right before Broyles yells at Olivia in the Harvard halls, there is an establishing shot of Harvard where it is nighttime outside, but inside the building, there's sunlight coming through the windows.

And Those We Left Behind - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: While beginning to take the radiation readings of the Jeep during his time jumps, Peter has a wedding ring on his finger. After cutting away and back again, the wedding ring is no longer on his finger.

Kenneth Nelson

A New Day in the Old Town - S2-E1

Character mistake: Peter tells Olivia that the Greek phrase she said on waking up was "Na einai kalytero anthropo apo ton patera tou" and translates this as "Be a better man than your father." The Greek is grammatically incorrect (it should be "kalyteros anthropos...") and Peter's translation is wrong. The translation of Olivia's phrase is "May he be a better human being than his father." What Peter said is a translation of the Greek phrase "Na eisai kalyteros anthropos apo ton patera sou."

Brave New World: Part 2 - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: The left side of Peter's face is alternately bathed in sunlight or not throughout the scene when he and Walter talk in front of Olivia's hospital room.

Midnight - S1-E18

Plot hole: When interrogating Boone, Olivia shows him a photo of a body with the spine torn out in the woods. This body hasn't been found yet, as a later scene has Olivia and Peter go to the same location and find the body. You can tell it's the same body because the shirt is the same in both the picture and the crime scene.

Brad

Inner Child - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Olivia, Broyles, Peter and Walter are visiting the boy for the first time at the hospital. A small bit of Olivia's hair is in front of her left shoulder. Cut to the immediate next shot from the patient's room and all of her hair is behind of shoulder.

Brave New World: Part 1 - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: This is when Peter and Olivia are discussing different Boston's suburbs as their potential new home. The sun is on the right side of Olivia's face in one shot. In other shots, it isn't.

The Same Old Story - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: On the park bench, while talking to Peter, Olivia's hair moves back and forth over her right shoulder.
