Other mistake: When Rebecca is telling Dorn about Etienne's death, she explains that his room was right above the garage and after the explosion she "tried to go in, but the room was gone." Yet at the end of the episode when Louis goes into Etienne's room, it is fully intact, including pictures taped to the wall.
Other mistake: An important key to the first season's plot is the "dancing men" code on the postcard. We see the postcard several times leading up to Ep 1:13. It shows 3 lines of code containing 4, 4, then 3 characters. In this episode, however, Steve brings out his workings on a yellow legal pad to show the others. There are more characters on his pad than are on the postcard, and some of the characters (for example those with both arms on one side of their bodies) do not even appear in his workings. He claims to have used frequency analysis to work out the code. If one uses frequency analysis on the actual code we see on the postcard, the result can never be Hiro Noshimuri. (00:23:35)Stripey
Other mistake: Regarding the suicide of Karen Anderson, her boyfriend explains that Karen hadn't been studying with him because she wanted to be in the sun all day, but all the footage of the bridge she jumped from shows it to have been a mostly overcast, gray day. The first shot of the bridge is at the very beginning of the episode and is repeated several times throughout.
Other mistake: End of episode 6 it's nighttime in LA, they also show Bridget in a church in NY, where Terry is in confession. Beginning of episode 7 it's still nighttime in LA, when Terry walks out of confession it's daytime in New York. It does not make sense for Terry to go to confession mid episode 6 (during daytime in LA).
