Family of Rogues - S2-E3

Corrected entry: Barry gets 4 cups of 'Flash'. They are with four people (Barry, Caitlin, Cisco and Iris) but look at the next shot; everyone's drinking except for Caitlin, but the fourth cup is still going up in shot, meaning a random extra person has appeared. (00:05:26)

Correction: It's true Caitlin is not drinking her cup but you see Cisco holding 2 cups of coffee.

Stephen Edmonds 1

Correction: He doesn't say "Harley", he says "Holly". It has nothing to do with his role as the Joker, but just changing the lyrics which normally go "Deck the halls with boughs of holly."

Crisis on Earth-X, Part 3 - S4-E8

Corrected entry: Turns out Oliver was handed an unloaded weapon by evil Quentin. But Oliver's handled enough weapons in his time to know that a gun with no bullets is noticeably lighter than one with, and would have realised the ruse immediately, certainly not then trying to threaten Quentin-X with it.

Jon Sandys Premium member

Correction: It was an unfamiliar weapon from another universe. He wouldn't know its mass.

Fast Enough - S1-E23

Corrected entry: At one point near the end of the episode, Professor Stein says to Barry, "That event has an energy level of at least 6.7 teraelectron volts. It cannot be stopped." One TeV is a measurement used in particle physics and is a very small amount of energy, approximately that of a very small flying insect. Hardly a proper measurement for a huge, catastrophic event.

Correction: Teraelectron volts measure particle energies, or their acceleration. The power comes from the amount of space the energy is squeezed into. The Large Hadron Collider accelerated protons to 1.18 teraelectron volts, so not much more than a mosquito, but a trillion times smaller than a mosquito, so quite powerful. The energy reading from Stein is over 5.6 times more than the world's most powerful superconducting proton synchrotron, and it's crammed into a very small space, making it nearly unstoppable.

Fast Enough - S1-E23

Corrected entry: Particle accelerators have to be a perfect vacuum in order to work properly, otherwise the particles inside would constantly collide with the air molecules. This means Barry couldn't possibly be running inside, because he doesn't have any breathing apparatus with him.

Friso94

Correction: As seen in many episodes, Barry's cells can rapidly reproduce new cells even with no oxygen (as seen in season 1 where the man could create a poisonous gas) and Barry survived. Therefore he would not have to have a breathing aid.

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. (00:02:10 - 00:11:30)

The Race of His Life - S2-E23

Harrison Wells: You know what? In battle, choose your weapon wisely. Some people choose a gun. I choose a Philips head screwdriver.
Cisco: Oh, oh. I'm sorry. You're so particular.
Harrison Wells: Ramone, could you just please? Have you ever worked with a tool before?
Cisco: I'm working with one now.

Paradox - S3-E2

Question: When Flash created an alternate timeline in the previous episode (S3-E1) he started to forget things. He once again created another alternate timeline in this episode (S3-E2), why doesn't he start to forget things again?

Answer: Barry didn't create another alternate timeline, he just restored his original one, however Jay intercepts him when he (Barry) tries to fix it again. He explains that no matter what he does, the timeline will not be exactly the same. Small "time fractures" will still remain. Barry will not forget because he is in his original timeline.
