Show generally

Continuity mistake: Most of Season 1 takes place in January of 2006, while Season 2 takes place in March of 1979. Molly mentions near the beginning of Season 1 that she's 31, and her father confirms this in episode 10 by mentioning that she was 4 years old during the events of the Sioux Falls massacre (season 2). In season 2, Molly's mother mentioned in episodes 1 and 4 that she's 6. It's also revealed in a flashback scene in episode 10 that she graduated high school in 1991 (most people are 17 or 18 when graduating high school). If you do the math, you'll see that there's an inconsistency in her age between Seasons 1 and 2. Apparently, 2 years were added to her age in Season 2.

The Disappeared - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Eph and Nora become passionate while they are at Eph's former home, Eph is wearing a thick, outdoorsy-type jacket. Eph picks Nora up off the bed and carries her over to the bedroom wall, still wearing the jacket. The shot changes angle, and even though he never sets her down and she is tightly clinging to him with her arms and legs wrapped around his body, he instantaneously no longer has the jacket on and is wearing a sweater. He never had time to take the coat off and never set Nora down.
