11 mistakes in season 2

Fracture - S2-E1

Factual error: The briefer on the oil platform mission says the platform is 12 stories, and 80 million square feet. Doing the math, that makes it half a mile per side if completely square. It is nowhere near that size as shown. The largest oil rig in the world - Berkut in Russia's Far East - has a combined deck area of only 342,000 square feet. (00:13:35)


Things Not Seen - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Six people jump out of a C-17 and Blackburn and Mandy are aboard the aircraft. The next shot shows the SEAL team in the air with parachutes. Then the scene goes to an air base in Incirlik, Turkey. Blackburn and Mandy are there. How did that airplane get from 200 miles inside Syria to a Turkish airbase before the SEAL team even hit the ground? (00:17:00)


Time to Shine - S2-E13

Factual error: The heart cannot be restarted using a defibrillator, in fact, a defibrillator stops a fibrillating heart. The only way to restart it is chest compression.

Suggested correction: CPR cannot restart a heart. See below: "BE AWARE Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) will not restart a heart in sudden cardiac arrest. CPR is just a temporary measure used to continue a minimal supply of oxygen to the brain and other organs. When someone is in sudden cardiac arrest, defibrillation is the only way to re-establish a regular heartbeat." From

Just to be clear, "sudden cardiac arrest" occurs when the heart fibrillates, which is not the same as a stopped heart.


Suggested correction: "This procedure is called Defibrillation. Sometimes, if the heart is stopped completely, the heart will restart itself within a few seconds and return to a normal electrical pattern."

Did you even bother to read the article you posted? It says if the heart stops (cardiac arrest), the first thing to do is chest compressions. The heart is then monitored to determine what step to take next. The line you quoted is regarding stopping the heart deliberately with defibrillation in hopes it will restart properly. It's not saying that a heart that under went cardiac arrest will just start up on its own, which is what the mistake is pointing out. (Plus, medical personnel do chest compressions after defibrillation).


Never Out of the Fight - S2-E22

Character mistake: When Jason is having his toast in the bar, he begins listing up the amount of decorations there are in the room, starting with saying there are three Silver Star medals in the room. Bravo Team alone has eight Silver Star medals. The only operators from Bravo who do not have the Silver Star medal are Blackburn and Full Metal. Full Metal was a real SEAL before going into acting, and earned a Navy Cross that he also wears in the show on his dress uniform. (00:36:36 - 00:37:12)

Things Not Seen - S2-E12

Other mistake: Sonny discovers Lisa's training manual, and it says "Officer Candidates School." It should be "Officer Candidate School." It even says so on the seal right there on the same cover. (00:11:20)


Never Say Die - S2-E2

Factual error: Jason's wife Alana tells Jason she going to grab H.E.B.'s finest bottle of $12 red, a rotisserie chicken and beer. H.E.B is a Texas grocery store, and the show is set in Virginia Beach, VA, Virginia doesn't have H.E.B. Stores. (00:39:03)


Season 2 generally

Factual error: For some reason in the first several episodes of the second season, a burst of red mist is added whenever an enemy is shot by the SEALs. The human body does not produce a mist of blood when hit by a projectile.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: "If the object impacts liquid blood, the larger surface area will collect more blood, producing drops of varying sizes. Gunshot injuries -‐ mist-‐like spatter caused by bullets entering and exiting the body. When blood is impacted, droplets are dispersed through the air." From

Season 2 generally

Question: This season has added the odd effect of a large puff of red smoke/dust whenever someone is shot. It is unrealistic and distracting. Wondering if anyone knows the reason for this change.
