Virtue of the Vicious - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: The first time we see the raid on the senator's room, 2 security guards are shot in the head. The blood spray from the second one emerges a fraction of a second before the gun fires. The second time the raid is played out, everything happens exactly the same way, but this time the spray matches the gunshot.

Imposters - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: Towards the end, when Luca and Deacon are bringing the criminal they caught to one of the cars, he has his hands tied up over the hands themselves and not at the wrists, making that kind of restraint completely ineffective.
