Eulogy - S1-E7

Other mistake: While working in the basement, the young Hugh Crain gets his right hand sliced badly by a fan. When the story next jumps forward to the present time, the first thing we see is Hugh grabbing a handful of dirt with the same hand and there is barely a scar on it.

Trivia: In the original novel, the characters Eleanor, Theo and Luke were not siblings. In addition, the characters Steven and Shirley didn't exist in the original novel. This series - a re-imagining of the novel - made the main characters into siblings and added Steven and Shirley to broaden the cast a bit. Shirley is named after Shirley Jackson, who wrote the novel.
