Revealing mistake: When Octavia storms into the lab where the Mountain Men have been holding the Ark's people, she has her sword in her right hand. As soon as Kane speaks she makes to sheath it, and we hear the sound we're used to expect to accompany that motion, but you can see she's just holding the unsheathed sword behind her. Then she proceeds to drop it, hiding part of the action from the camera with her body, and although you don't see her catch it again that is made evident from the way she eases the sword on the floor beside her right foot a moment later. Furthermore, in the next shot her sword is not in its sheath.
Plot hole: The grounder's leader Anya states that the missiles (flares) burned a village to the ground. If this were true, the flares couldn't have flown very far, otherwise that village would have been too far away for the grounders to know about. In a previous episode, when you saw the flares from space, it was obvious the flares traveled hundreds if not thousands of miles away.
Continuity mistake: During the funeral on the oil rig, right after Octavia collapses under the effect of the drug, Clarke has a sturdy, simple metal cup in her hand, but in the following shot we see her dropping a completely different, clay-like and more elaborate cup that shatters when it hits the floor.
Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the duel scene you can see Roan extract his mother's sword from the sheath a guard is holding for him, then turn around and step towards the center of the arena. Several seconds later, in the shot of Lexa right after Clarke's arrival, you can see him in the background unsheathing the sword once again.
Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the duel scene, Roan starts running towards Lexa holding his sword in his left hand. In the following shot he can be seen running with the sword in his right hand, while when they finally collide he's back to holding it with his left.
Continuity mistake: In the scene when Octavia and Maya enter the mess hall while trying to escape the guards chasing them, you can see Maya is walking in front of Octavia. In the shot immediately after, though, Octavia is the one in front and she is being stopped by a guard pointing a gun at her. In the following shot we are back to Maya walking in front still trying to cross the hall, just as she sees guards appear from around the corner; that is the point when the two turn around, and we are once again presented with the same shot of the guard intercepting Octavia, only from a different angle.
Continuity mistake: When Clarke extracts the knife from Finn's chest, suddenly they all get thrown to the ground. Once she stands up again, in the first shot she's holding the knife with the blade pointing behind her, as it was when she extracted it, but in the following shot the blade is pointing forward instead.
Factual error: When Octavia goes to challenge Raphael and instead kills him, she does so using a very long skewer she grabs from the table. If she had actually put that through his head, it would've either stuck out from the other side or not gone in completely.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the duel scene, when Roan and Lexa lock swords, they do so with each sword pointing to their holders' right. During the shot of Lexa being forced to her knees while Roan tells her to get down, though, both swords are pointing to their holders' left, and Roan can be seen holding his with his right hand instead of his left like he does in the rest of the scene.
Continuity mistake: In the very first scene when we enter Clarke's room from outside the window, you can see bars/old window frames in it. In the next shot, from inside the room, you can plainly see that it looks like an open balcony without any of the previous structures.
Continuity mistake: When Clarke gives Lexa Anya's braid, we see Lexa accepting it with her left hand and then holding it with both. The next time she's on screen, though, you can see her holding it in one hand, still withdrawing from Clarke. In the following shot, she has the braid in both hands once again.
Continuity mistake: During the fight between Anya and Clarke in front of the drop ship they are both covered in grime, and after Anya hits Clarke with the log Clarke's face becomes increasingly smeared with blood. Throughout the scene, you can see Clarke's face switch between grimy and bloodied at least a couple times, most noticeably in the shot just after Anya tackles her into the ground and the following one.
Continuity mistake: When Lexa enters the throne room for the meeting with the ambassadors from the 12 clans, after she reaches her throne she stands in front of it, holding her hands behind her back. In the following shots, her hands keep switching from behind her to in front of her, to at her sides.
