The Flash

Attack on Central City - S3-E14

Factual error: Wells states that there are "precisely 90,000" possible 5-digit combinations for the keypad (to abort the nuclear code). However, there are actually 100,000 possible combinations (10^5).

Flash vs. Arrow - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: As the detectives are talking to their captain about the bank robbery, in a shot from behind the captain he takes his hands off his food and clasps them in front of him. The shot cuts to his front as he starts talking, and he moves his hands and clasps them again.

City of Heroes - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In episode 2.09 of related show "Arrow," during the day the particle accelerator is activated, Barry spends his time with Oliver, Felicity, and Diggle in Starling City. He arrives back in Central City just in time to see the particle accelerator activated, and he is in his lab because he was too late and missed the line at S.T.A.R. Labs. In episode 101 of "The Flash," Barry was never in Starling City during the day the particle accelerator was activated, and he and Iris actually attended the event.

Infantino Street - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: When Iris is sitting in bed recording the message for Barry, she is holding her iPhone so that the start button is on the left side, but the "video record" button appears on the right. Additionally, her right hand covers the speaker area of the phone fully, including the front facing camera. It is impossible for Iris to be recording the video live and reveals that the video footage was recorded ahead of time. The illusion that the video is being recorded by Iris live is further ruined by the fact that the room lighting is turned off in the scene, but the recording is well lit.

Things You Can't Outrun - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: As Barry is going up the stairs in the police station and says he doesn't want a museum dedicated to him, a man and a woman are walking down the stairs. However, a second later, the shot has changed and the man is now a different person and the woman has gone completely.

Revenge of the Rogues - S1-E10

Plot hole: During the fight at sundown, Cold gets a hit on Flash and he goes down. Eddie takes a shield and goes to help. But Flash was in the middle of the street with no obstacles around, and it's implausible that Eddie could have gotten to him without Cold or Heat seeing him.

Things You Can't Outrun - S1-E3

Other mistake: When Cisco and Cailtin call Barry to tell him about the man with the gun, Cailtin says he has a gun. Cut to the cops pursuing him, the perp shoots at the cops, and one of them seems surprised that he has a gun. There's no way Caitlin could have known about the gun without the cop knowing (which would presumably have been relayed over police communications).

Luck Be a Lady - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Iris covers herself with the blanket, the blanket is off her left shoulder, and you see her dress strap. Later the blanket is fully covering her shoulder. The blanket changes a few more times in later shots.

Cause and Effect - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: The explanation that Cisco draws about the endless cycle changes in between shots, not counting the added words "past", present", and "future" (which he could have written when off camera, not that it would make sense to do so since he already explained what was past, present, and future). Where the loop crosses itself is higher up as well as the "FF + TR" being different.

Abra Kadabra - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Iris and Joe are talking, Iris sits with her elbow on the couch and her head against her hand. In the next shot, her forearm is resting on the couch, and her hand is hanging down, away from her head.

The Present - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When The Flash reveals to Julian that he's Barry, he pulls back his cowl, leaving it around his neck. But in shots of Barry's back after Julian says his sister died, the cowl is gone. The cowl is around his neck in all the other shots.

Duet - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Barry and Kara get shot outside the bar, at first the spot of blood on Barry's shirt is bigger than when Iris and Mon-El later get to the scene.

Legends of Today - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: After Barry draws Vandal Savage to show the team what he looks like, he tucks the pencil being his ear. Several shots later the pencil disappears.

Trajectory - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning when Cisco throws a rock to the river beside Barry, the sun changes between shots.

Back to Normal - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: The sequence at the start showing a "normal" day shows a coffee shop with the Flash supposedly running out with two coffee cups.When we see his day now without super speed, the shot of the coffee shop is just a continuation of the previous one, with the same guy walking through the door. In fact if you go back and look closely at the first shot, you can just see the edge of Barry, hidden behind another customer.

Continuity mistake: Every time Barry is wearing the Flash suit the mask fits perfectly, but when he takes it off the size increases noticeably.
