Character mistake: After Patton's ex-wife pushes him off the balcony and he lands on the researcher with the gun and the rest of the team come in, someone asks him if he is OK. He says that he is fine, nothing is broken. Other than his arms, ribs or neck how is he going to know that? He is already paralyzed. He can't feel anything.William Lindsey
Factual error: Almost all the people being shown skydiving have no experience doing it, but the instructor allows them to jump out of the plane unassisted after only giving a theoretic introduction into the subject. First time skydivers are always assisted in some fashion, usually through a tandem-jump or a parachute opened by a line attached to the plane.Tanngrisnir
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).
Factual error: About 45 minutes into the episode, the girls' car stalls because the alternator's wire has been removed to cause this. For a car to stall like this, the battery has to be heavily drained which it would wind up being. When the killer comes up to the car, he tells her to try and start the car. She does and it turns over but doesn't start. The battery would never have enough amperage to turn over the car if it didn't have enough to keep the motor running.terry s
Continuity mistake: When the bomb under the bus is being defused, it's counting down and beeping once every second. We see the timer at 0:45, then cut to the face of the woman defusing it - counting the beeps when we cut back it should be on 0:45, but it's jumped up to 1:06. Camera pans down to her face, then back to the bomb, and it's now on 0:43, but going by the beeps it should be on 0:36. We cut away again for 5 more beeps, cut back and the bomb's only just ticking onto 0:41.
