The Blacklist

Wujing - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: In the shot of the assassins fleeing the scene of the bullet-ridden Range Rover in Shanghai, China, people are casually crossing the busy street in front of and behind the car. Nobody is looking at what just happened. Computer generated graphics were used to place the car and assassins' motorcycles in the shot. (00:00:50)

The Lindquist Concern - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: When Elise calls Navabi's phone, the phone is not in call mode.

THGhost

General Ludd - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: After Reddington kills Elizabeth's father and kisses him goodbye the "corpse" takes a deep breath.

Lenore Scott

The Decembrist (No. 12) - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: When turning the guy with C4 around his neck, the 4 person safe box window shakes briefly. If this was a bomb proof safe box, the glass would be at least 1.5"+ in thickness and would not shake simply from some walking. That box would be shrapnel to a C4 bomb inside. (00:26:30)

Arioch Cain (No. 50) - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: When Tom Keen is on the phone at the end of the episode, he is holding the phone backwards with the screen away from his ear. (00:41:20)

The Architect (No. 107) - S4-E14

Berlin: Conclusion - S1-E22

Plot hole: At the end of this episode Red takes off his shirt revealing his burned back, which leaves us to think that he might be Elizabeth's dad. However, this particular mark should have been noticed and written down in Red's prisoner file when he was taken into custody the first time (Episode 1). In that case Elizabeth would already know that Red is burned and could have asked some questions about it.
