The Flash

Mother - S7-E3

Stupidity: The team knows that Eva can snatch people through any reflective surface, and make a great show of killing the lights to prevent reflections...which are then replaced by emergency lighting, rendering the whole process pointless. They also drop shutters over the outside of the windows, leaving the reflective windows themselves unprotected inside the lab! And Barry promptly stares pensively into one at close range...and is of course snatched by Eva.

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

Stupidity: After the power cuts out, Thawne realises an obvious hiding spot and races to the secret room. He sees it's empty and just...stops looking? We literally just saw The Flash take a fraction of a second to scout out an entire enemy base we're told was 22km away! While he's dawdling in the secret room, Iris and Felicity get to Kara, knock out the guards, and get her down the corridor to the lift. He could have checked the entirety of Star Labs 10 times over in that time.

The Race of His Life - S2-E23

Stupidity: When Barry agrees to race Zoom, he says he'll do it but only if he brings Joe with him. He could have also asked to bring the man in the iron mask as well as he swore that he would free him.

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.

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.
