Sex and the country - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When Carrie is startled by the squirrel and tosses the pie crust onto the counter, the camera cuts to her clasping her legs where she burnt them. In the next shot of the counter the pie crust has vanished; then in the next shot of it, the crust has returned. Also, the tray and tea towels change positions.

Plot hole: When Carrie is sitting on the kitchen table after Aiden ices her legs, they begin to kiss. As they lean back over the table; Carrie stretches her legs out and wraps them around Aiden, rubbing them against him several times. She has just been painfully burned on her legs, but suddenly has no problem rubbing the burned areas against his waist without any pain, problems or hesitation. She is acting as if she was never burned; but the skin would have still been tender, and it would have hurt to brush it against Aiden in that manner. (00:26:45)

Sex and the country - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When Carrie is holding the pie pan, she is startled by the squirrel on the window and drops the hot pan, burning her legs. She is facing forward directly towards the pie pan, and as it falls it could only have burned the front and possibly a little of the sides of her legs. But later when she is sitting on the kitchen table, Aiden takes some ice from the iced tea pitcher and puts it in both of his hands. He then asks her where she was burned, and proceeds to gently rub the ice on the back of both of her legs, not the front or sides where she was burned. He is only rubbing the back of her calves, below the knees. (00:25:00 - 00:25:45)
