Deceptive Little Parasite - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Chloe and Mazikeen are at the private school checking out the other parents, Chloe is alternately holding Mazikeen's hand and not holding it between shots.

THGhost

Liar, Liar, Slutty Dress on Fire - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: When the cops find the body in the hotel room, the actor playing the body is visibly breathing when he's supposed to be dead.

What Would Lucifer Do? - S3-E4

Other mistake: When Lucifer grabs Amenidiel's phone and is supposedly typing on it, he's holding it upside down. (00:06:25)

The Would-Be Prince of Darkness - S1-E3

Plot hole: During the credits, Chloe said of the victim "coroner puts her time of death between 1 and 3am", and she does indeed ask Ty's obsessive fan / ex-gf where has she been during that timeframe. When she looks at the security tape, the timecode starts rolling at 22:18 and goes on "for 3 hours." That does not account for the time of the murder at all, she has no alibi for the second half of the suspected timeframe! Not to mention, she said she saw Ty kiss the victim. When could she possibly have seen that? It's unlikely that before 10pm Ty was already drunk and getting randy with the girl, with the house full of guests. (00:25:00)

Pilot - S1-E1

Other mistake: Throughout the episode, Lucifer's car has a California license plate - but that is, just one. He is missing the one in the front. In the following episode the car does have the regular 2 plates, and when he is pulled over at the beginning (and keeps being around cops all the time), nobody raises an eyebrow at the violation of the code.

High School Poppycock - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: Lucifer is going through the blue 'Class of 3001' book, then puts down the green 'Class of 3001' book without ever lifting it up. (00:11:50)

Stewardess Interruptus - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Chloe tells Lucifer that her main priority is the case and that nothing is going to happen between them, her hair on the right side of her face tucks itself behind her right ear between shots. It then falls down again, then tucks itself once more.

Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil. - S1-E2

Other mistake: We are shown several times the first person perspective of a paparazzi camera, with the HUD. From a diegetic point of view though, it is used in a way that lacks coherence. For instance, in the red carpet scene the photo count goes down by one every time the shutter clicks, while in the car scene it does not go down at all. And it really could not have been Josh's camera in the red carpet scene, because it photographed Chloe once he already escaped and from behind.

Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil. - S1-E2

Other mistake: The dynamic of the scene with the paparazzi outside the party is quite absurd: forgetting the fact that the paparazzo just happened to have amazing parking privileges (the only sedan in the street, allowed somehow right by the red carpet!) the timing is all wrong, as he "just" made his escape a minute later, witnessed by Chloe walking away just then from the paparazzi brawl. She had walked past their lot already over 30 seconds before, while Lucifer stayed behind forcing the comical confession out of 'Friar Tuck'. (00:26:00 - 00:26:35)

Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil. - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the interrogation room with Nick, more than once (for instance when Lucifer says at the beginning "I don't want to know about the case") when Jeremy Davies lifts his open hands and holds them up, they are held up at a different height between one shot and the reverse. (00:18:50)

Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil. - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Chloe is being debriefed by her ex about the crime scene. There's a close-up of the photographer who will be the key of the case, being physically pushed away by a policeman. The scene goes on with him in the background in many shots, all on his own, snapping away as if nothing happened. (00:08:55)

Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil. - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The fake preacher runs away leaving all the money behind: in the overhead shot Lucifer says "I'm here till, well, the end of times actually" turning around past a guy (big hair, big sideburns, black and blue shirt) that he already passed in the shot before as he thanked the crowd. (00:03:20)

Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil. - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, the preacher is walking around with the donation mug. The first kid to put a few bucks in does it across two shots and has a very notable yellow hand-held device when he puts the money in that was not there in the first shot. (00:02:00)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: During the scene in the school corridor with Lucifer sitting down and talking to Chloe's daughter, the same extras keep doing erratic back-and-forth for no reason (for instance the girl with a white jacket and pink shoulder bag) or just plain wrong (the kid with the horizontal striped maroon sweater who walks twice past Lucifer early in the convo). (00:24:50 - 00:25:50)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Lucifer walks down the stairs into 2 Vile's mansion; first person he comes across is carrying a glass, wearing a black T-shirt and grey undershirt sticking out. The guy is walking towards Lucifer as if he were going to use the stairs Lucifer is descending, but just vanishes in the following shot, only to reappear at the next cut, taking the stairs as it seemed bound to happen all along. (00:16:15)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lucifer talks to the killer in agony in the car wreck, blood streaks change on his face between shots (in particular, he has blood coming from the corner of his moith in the last shot, from the side, but he had none a moment before, in close-ups). (00:09:40)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, a cop pulls Lucifer over. The car stops with the front wheels on white road markings. When Lucifer is shown taking off again, the street is just not the same, there's no white horizontal lines, and a manhole appears under the car. (00:02:45)

The Would-Be Prince of Darkness - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Lucifer enters the conference room of the "rebranding" of Ty. You can see Ty turn around in his chair, but after the cut he is still leaning against the table, performing the turn again a second later. (00:35:30)

The Would-Be Prince of Darkness - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, the therapist in the first part of the conversation (before she gets her heels) holds her right hand on her bosom in the close-ups, while it is lowered in the wider angle. (00:40:10)

The Would-Be Prince of Darkness - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Joe rubs his protege Ty's shoulders saying "But we kept it out of the press." Ty has his hand raised, while in the shot before he had it on the desk. (00:35:15)

Dan: I don't know whether to laugh or to shoot you.
Lucifer: Surprise me.
