The Thing You Love Most - S1-E2

New this week Factual error: This episode takes place the day after Emma decides to stay in Storybrooke and time started moving. According to "The Stranger" and "Selfless, Brave and True", August woke up in pain in Phuket on October 24, 2011 at 8:15am, the exact minute that Emma decided to stay in Storybrooke at 8:15pm. Since Thailand is 12 hours ahead of Maine's timezone, this means that time started moving in Storybrooke on October 23, and that this episode takes place on October 24. During Regina's conversation with Emma in her office, she says, "Did I know that my son comes to my office every Thursday at precisely 5pm so I can take him for dinner before his therapy session? Of course I did." However, October 24, 2011 was a Monday.

The Crocodile - S2-E4

New this week Continuity mistake: Before the duel, as Rumplestiltskin says, "Sorry, but killing a man with his own sword was just too delicious to pass up", Killian's right arm is bent. In the next shot, his arm is down by his side.

Dreamy - S1-E14

New this month Factual error: In "What Happened to Frederick", Kathryn learns about David's affair and confronts Mary Margaret at school (after taking her anger out on Regina), where students and teachers are milling about. Later, she apologizes to Regina for "what happened yesterday", whereas Emma, earlier that day, seeks out Henry at school. Kathryn leaves Storybrooke the same day, and mysteriously disappears. According to Kathryn's phone records in this episode, she disappeared on a Sunday. However, the day she left, and the day before, was a school day. In the U.S., school classes are not in session during weekends.

Snow Drifts - S3-E21

New this month Audio problem: As past Hook carries Emma aboard his ship, he drunkenly and loudly declares, "Behold! The Rolly Joger." Although they are several meters away from the camera, you can see that his lips are barely moving.

Dreamy - S1-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: When Mary Margaret and Emma are walking down the street, as Mary Margaret says, "This is the best I can do", she begins to walk past the corner of a building. In the next shot, they begin to walk past it again.

Snow Falls - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the horse carriage is ambushed, just as Princess Abigail can be heard screaming "Please, help me", the camera pans downward and a horse wrangler wearing a blue baseball cap can be seen in the lower left hand corner, hiding behind one of the horses.

Dreamy - S1-E14

Character mistake: In the evening, Emma states that Kathryn Nolan has been missing for 24 hours, meaning that this episode takes place the day after Kathryn disappeared. When Emma investigates Kathryn's car, David tells Emma that he last spoke to Kathryn "yesterday afternoon" (and stresses that he is telling the truth), and that he hasn't spoken to her since he ended their relationship. However, "What Happened to Frederick" establishes that David broke up with Kathryn the day before she tried to leave town and disappeared, because when Kathryn apologized to Regina, Regina referred to the events surrounding the break-up as "what happened yesterday." Emma checks Kathryn's phone records and finds out that Kathryn talked to David on the phone the day she disappeared, but David could not have referred to that conversation, since "Red-Handed" and "Heart of Darkness" both establish that he doesn't remember the phone call because of a memory blackout. While it is possible that David could have been referring to a second, off-screen, break-up conversation with Kathryn the day she disappeared, when Sidney shows up with the phone records, Emma specifically says to him that David told her that he DIDN'T speak to Kathryn that day, which, in fact, he said he did.

The Price of Gold - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: When Sheriff Graham pulls in front of Emma in a police car, the big sign on the storefront behind Emma says "Storybrooke Coffee Co." However, as Graham gets out of the car, you can see a circular sign on the side of the building, which says "Steveston Coffee Co"; Steveston is the Canadian town where Once Upon a Time is filmed.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Emma has a flower tattoo on her left wrist. Throughout the series, there are subtle changes in its design, and its position on her arm. For example, when Emma is sitting at the table with Mary Margaret in "The Thing You Love Most", the tattoo has six petals, and is located about an inch below her hand. When she's on the phone with Ruby in "Red-Handed", the tattoo is much bigger, and the petals are arranged differently; it has also moved further up her arm, and is almost touching her hand. When she's arrested in "Tallahassee", there are five petals instead of six, the petals have a rounder shape (in "Red-Handed", they were rather pointy), and the tip of one of the petals is touching her hand. When she pulls her hair behind her ears at the tavern in "Snow Drifts", said petal is thinner, and is no longer touching her hand.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The blade on the Dark One's Dagger has one side with the name of the Dark One inscribed, while the other side is decorated with a pattern. The name keeps switching from one side of the blade to the other, throughout the series. In some scenes, the writing is right side up when the dagger is held in the left hand and facing the wielder: This happens, for example, when Rumplestiltskin finds the dagger in "Desperate Souls", when Mr. Gold gives the knife to August in "The Return", when Gold summons the wraith in "Broken", when Cora has the dagger in "The Miller's Daughter", when Zelena controls Mr. Gold in "The Tower", and when Gold triumphantly shows the dagger to Zelena in "Kansas." In other scenes, the characters are right side up when the dagger is facing the wielder and held in the right hand: For example, when Rumplestiltskin summons Zoso in "Desperate Souls", when Cora steals the knife in "The Queen Is Dead", when Gold uses the dagger in "Going Home", when Regina picks it up in "Kansas", and when Gold hides the dagger in "Snow Drifts."

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Sidney's newspaper article in 1-8 "Desperate Souls" stated that Emma was arrested in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1996. However, this is directly contradicted in this episode, which shows that Emma was actually arrested in Portland, eleven years before the frame story, meaning that the arrest took place in 2001 (since "Selfless, Brave and True" establishes that Emma arrived in Storybrooke in October 2011, and the frame story of "Tallahassee" takes place a few months later, in 2012; the year 2001 is confirmed in 3-22 "There's No Place Like Home").

Dreamy - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Bossy is cutting Dreamy's beard, Dreamy asks "Who was the woman I saw?" and Bossy stops cutting, but a couple of shots later, Dreamy's beard is suddenly much shorter.

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When Neal is being chased by August, he runs on top of a car before attempting to jump the fence. Just before he jumps on top of the car, you can see that the one who actually performs this action is Michael Raymond James' stunt double.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Emma Swan has a flower tattoo on her left wrist. It can be glimpsed during her date with Ryan, and is visible when she's sitting at the table with Mary Margaret in "The Thing You Love Most", and when she's on the phone with Ruby in "Red-Handed." However, when she opens the door for Henry in "Pilot", the tattoo is gone. The same thing happens when she's pressing a pack of ice against her wound in "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter."

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: In the giant's treasure room, there are many giant gold coins near the skeleton of Jack the Giant Killer. The amount and position of the coins repeatedly changes. For example, when they find the skeleton, there are several coins on the edge of a small dais, but when Emma saves Hook from the trip wire, they are missing.

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Emma is arrested, she has a flower tattoo on her left wrist. When she's climbing the beanstalk with Hook, in a few shots, her wrist is bare, and you can see that the tattoo is missing; this happens, for example, when she remarks, "You should be used to people not trusting you."

Kylantha

The Outsider - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Gold and Belle are walking to the pawnshop together, their position in relation to the storefronts they walk past keeps changing. Most notably, they walk past a couple of wheelbarrows three times in consecutive shots.
