Anslo Garrick, Part 1 - S1-E9

Character mistake: As Reddington sets up the blood transfer between himself and Ressler he inserts the intravenous line in Ressler's arm first and then in his own arm. This way the remaining air inside the line gets into the recipient's body and could very well kill him. Judging the expert way he handles the set up he should know to first insert the IV in his own arm, let the line fill with blood and then insert the IV in Ressler's arm.

Suggested correction: That amount of air would probably not cause any problem. It actually takes quite a lot of air to cause any issue.

Mr. Gregory Devry (No. 95) - S3-E11

Other mistake: After arresting the Reddington impostor, Ressler states that while hunting Red they had only one photo with a "passing resemblance to the man we've been working with." In S1E1 you can however see a high quality picture of Red on the front desk screen while he is arrested. (00:32:25)

Suggested correction: The photo that's seen on the front desk screen is the same photo on Reddington's wanted poster, which has been seen a number of times in the show. That is the 1 photo the FBI have that has a "passing resemblance" to Reddington today, which is what Ressler is referring to.

The Stewmaker - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When the Stewmaker parks his car in the woods and takes Lizzie out of the trunk, a camera crew is reflected in the car's front bumper.

Suggested correction: I checked and there is no camera crew visible at all.

Anslo Garrick, Part 1 - S1-E9

Other mistake: Elizabeth picks up a stuffed bunny which supposedly was from her childhood. The bunny has burns on it after being in a fire.You can see 2 plastic tag fasteners attached to the bunny, which wouldn't have survived the fire.

Suggested correction: Later we see in the flashback that Liz was holding the bunny. It only got singed as she was escaping. It wasn't "in" the fire.

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.
