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.

Human for a Day - S1-E7

Character mistake: When Kara breaks her arm, she says that she doesn't need to go to a hospital because the bone will heal when her powers return. She would still need a splint or a cast to ensure that the bone sets in place properly; leaving it untreated runs the risk of a physical deformity or other unforeseen complications down the road.

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)
