Supergirl

Alex - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: Rick Malverne has handcuffs on when J'onn goes in as his dad. When he figures out it was J'onn, he tells them they have "23 hours and 14 minutes," looks at his watch and the cuffs are gone. (00:21:30 - 00:25:00)

Supergirl Lives - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: As they are fleeing the alien base, Supergirl and the others run towards the portal, Winn activates it and jumps through. In a following shot (after a 'friendly' alien helps them), he is standing behind Supergirl again. (00:32:00 - 00:32:35)

Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part One - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: Oliver still has a quiver full of arrows when he's making his stand at the end. A shadow demon knocks him down and all of the arrows disappear instantly. They've not been knocked out of the quiver onto the ground, they've disappeared entirely.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? - S4-E15

Character mistake: During the opening scene, while Lex is talking to Lena he says he was quoting Epicurus from 230 years prior. Epicurus died in 270BC, making that quote around 2300 years old.

American Alien - S4-E1

Character mistake: President Marsdin says that Camp David was named by President Eisenhower in honor of his son and grandson. It was actually named for his father and his grandson; his sons were named John and Doud.

Alex - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: Right after Alex is freed from the water tank, in the shots of Maggie holding her, Alex's clothes are bone dry.

THGhost

Manhunter - S1-E17

Factual error: The Marine Colonel in Supergirl played by Eddie McClintock spends all of his time wearing Marine Officer's Dress Blue Bravos. Marine Dress Blues are ceremonial uniforms. On rare occasions, the Charlies or Deltas (no coat) may be worn as a work uniforms (the primary exception to this rareness being recruiters). The full uniform is certainly not worn for day to day work in the field.

Prince Ly Squisher

Childish Things - S1-E10

Factual error: After his father escapes from prison, Winn is interviewed by the FBI. Escaped fugitives fall under the jurisdiction of the Marshals' Service.

Cubs Fan

Red Dawn - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: During the fight between Supergirl and her clone, the clone blasts Supergirl with her purple lightning power, which causes a small explosion and also somehow turns the sky from bright dusk to nighttime.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? - S4-E15

Factual error: While the location of National City is never revealed, it is generally accepted that it is located in the US. But all the helicopters used to fly Lex around are Canadian.

toroscan

Suspicious Minds - S4-E10

Other mistake: J'onn J'onzz starts a private Investigation company. He is shown looking at the new PI license he just placed on the wall. But the certificate says it is a renewal. (00:05:30)

In Search of Lost Time - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: During the mental block Alex stops the fight between Winn and the Asian guard then she hits him twice. The punch to his face misses by inches but he falls anyway.

Battles Lost and Won - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: The sketch that Brainy shows to Winn is meant to be his original sketch that he drew in the previous episode, hence why Winn is so shocked he's somehow got it. But it's slightly different from what we actually saw him draw at the time.

Make It Reign - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: The shield design that Winn sketches on the paper changes between him starting to draw, and him showing it to his friend a second later.

Not Kansas - S3-E21

Revealing mistake: As the guy fires the machine gun at Guardian, there's a closeup of bullet casings falling to the ground, but they're not just empty casings, they're fired blank rounds.

Shelter from the Storm - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Winn and Brainy hug, Winn starts the hug with one arm high and one lower, towards Brainy's waist. The shot cuts and both his arms are up and in the centre of his body.

In Search of Lost Time - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Samantha sees the surveillance video of her transformation into Reign, which was triggered by Lena provoking her, their dialogue is slightly, but very distinctly, different than it was a few minutes earlier. (00:20:15 - 00:25:25)

For the Girl Who Has Everything - S1-E13

Other mistake: In Kara's hallucinations of Krypton, the planet is shown with a yellow sun. Rao, the supergiant around which Krypton orbited, was red.

Cubs Fan

Midvale - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: As Kenny is about to sit down opposite to Kara, the juice on his tray is lying down on it. Next shot it is standing up.

Worlds Finest - S1-E18

Cat Grant: All four of you standing there doing nothing, you look like the attractive yet non-threatening, racially diverse cast of a CW show.
