Day 4: 11:00 P.M.-12:00 A.M. - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: When Jason and his wife are trying to escape from Marwan, they run through a corridor filled with water puddles. A few seconds later, one of Marwan's men goes through the same corridor to follow them, but none of the puddles had any ripples, which they should have considering the amount of water and time elapsed.

Factual error: In the opening scene of the episode, Marwan gives a cohort Lat/Long coordinates for a nuclear missile. The computer shows these coordinates as being in the Midwest, they are actually in Nevada. (37 14' N 115 21' W).

Continuity mistake: Day Four: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM. When Tariq and Behrooz are shown in split-screen digging Debbie's grave right after the commercial break (12:54:10 by the show's clock), Tariq's white t-shirt is covered in dirt. When the shot goes back to them a minute or so later, Tariq's t-shirt is much cleaner.

Factual error: The bad guy uses the thumb to access the Air Force base at the end of the episode. Thumb scanners are activated by the pulse and wouldn't work otherwise.

Day 4: 6:00 A.M.-7:00 A.M. - S4-E24

Plot hole: Jack and Tony are supposed to be in the CTU locker room. So why does the room have glass walls? No point in having a locker room to change in if everyone can see you anyway.

Day 4: 10:00 P.M.-11:00 P.M. - S4-E16

Character mistake: 23rd minute. Jack meets the female assassin in Anderson's apartment. She demands that he show his credentials. Jack says he's with CTU on a provisional basis and therefore he has no badge. The agent that came with Jack confirms that. Yet, in the 13th episode (minute 14) when he enters the sports shop with Audrey's husband, he shows his CTU badge to the owners in order to prove that he in fact is a federal agent.

Day 4: 1:00 A.M.-2:00 A.M. - S4-E19

Plot hole: At 01:50 am, Chloe is told to go to Sabir's house. She arrives there approximately 5 minutes later, at 01:55:45. At 01:58, Jack is told that the closest tactical team is 15 minutes away from Sabir's residence. A few moments later, Jack mentions that the tactical team is 10 minutes apart from Chloe, meaning they bothered to send the team over there even though any officer currently at CTU HQ, including Jack, could get over there a lot sooner.

Continuity mistake: To get crucial information from Prado, Jack offers his resignation to Buchanan, and takes Prado on as a private citizen. But Jack doesn't work for CTU; he works for DOD, and is at CTU on a provisional basis.

Day 4: 2:00 P.M.-3:00 P.M. - S4-E8

Factual error: When Edgar proves that Mary-Ann Taylor framed Sarah to be the rat in CTU, he claims that she remotely took control of her computer by sending the signal over "a plain old AC power line." This is not possible, unless the computers were equipped with special hardware to separate the AC from the signal. If they were, this traffic would have been observed by James Heller's assistant.

Day 4: 1:00 P.M.-2:00 P.M. - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When we first see the map of the powerplants that are successfully shut down (green) all the plants in Minnesota are green. Towards the end, however, one of them is shown flashing red, meaning it has not been shut down.

Day 4: 9:00 P.M.-10:00 P.M. - S4-E15

Plot hole: Dina Araz was executed at 8:57pmin the previous episode. At 9:01pm during this episode, the terrorists have already placed her body in the van, driven off with it, and abandoned it. Then someone had found the body, reported it in, and the information gotten to CTU. All in the course of four minutes. That is impossible, no matter how fast the terrorists were.

Day 4: 5:00 A.M.-6:00 A.M. - S4-E23

Continuity mistake: In the first scene where we see Tony as a hostage, Mandy comes over to him and he has a white gag in his mouth, which is taut. Mandy says, "Is she gonna do the same for you?" and the camera cuts back to Tony, whose gag is now limp on both sides.

Plot hole: When Conlon searches for Paul in the dark he holds his gun and the flashlight in his crossed hands. You can see how the light of the flashlight brightens the side of the gun. But the cone of light on the wall is a full round circle.

Day 4: 11:00 A.M.-12:00 P.M. - S4-E5

Plot hole: Jack's CTU-car arrives only 1 min 20 seconds later after he has asked for it. Remember the time he needed from the store to the roadblock in the previous episode.The CTU-car has to be K.I.T.T. with a enormous turbo boost.

Day 4: 2:00 P.M.-3:00 P.M. - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When James phones Jack, who is at Tony's house with Audrey, Jack says they are at "21408, Kipling, North Hollywood". Later, when Secret Service arrives to pick up Audrey, Jack walks outside the house, where we see the house number is actually 21048. The same can be seen earlier when Tony, Audrey and Jack first arrive at the house, but not as close-up.

Day 4: 9:00 P.M.-10:00 P.M. - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: Chloe tells Michelle that she's confirmed Marwan's identity using voice tags from McLennan Forrester, but all of the computer records at MF were wiped out a few episodes earlier by the EMP, according to both the MF employees and CTU. The fact that they didn't get any information from the company except for the printouts Jack and Paul extracted was a major plot point a few hours ago, so even if a real EMP wouldn't do this, the fact that it's stated repeatedly in the show means it should hold true within the series; Chloe suddenly having information from them an hour or so later is discontinuous, and thus a mistake.

Continuity mistake: When Agent Lobell tries to stop a car from leaving the train station, the terrorist in the car shoots at him through a window, shattering it. When the camera cuts to a shot of Lobell falling to the ground, the window in the car is gone, but no fragments of it are on the car or the ground under it.

Day 4: 3:00 P.M.-4:00 P.M. - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, when Jack and Tony try to stop the helicopter, they drive off the road and hit the front bumper and lose their front license plate. This is also visible in this episode as Jack and Tony wait for backup and when they drive off there is still no license plate, but about 8 minutes later, when they arrive, the license plate is back on. Since the show is in real time and they arrived in the exact time they said they would, they couldn't have stopped to get it fixed or anything.

Day 4: 7:00 P.M.-8:00 P.M. - S4-E13

Character mistake: Near the start of the episode, Curtis asks how many square miles are affected by the blackout, and is told "approximately 8." A few minutes later, Sarah states that the blackout area is "everything within an 8 mile radius." These are vastly different amounts. An 8 mile radius would cover approximately 201 square miles.

Continuity mistake: When Curtis Manning is chasing Mary-Ann Taylor out of CTU, you see Mary-Ann exiting through a solid grey door marked by an EXIT sign in a wall which looks like concrete. As she passes through the door, you can see sunlight on her from almost directly above. In the next shot Mary-Ann is seen exiting through a glass door in a wall of glass panels. Unless there is a section of CTU's roof missing, the room she exits from in the second shot is not the room she exits to a few seconds earlier in the first shot.

Day 4: 8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. - S4-E14

Character mistake: In the scene where Chloe uses traffic video to get the license plate number off the van that takes Jack and Dina Araz to Habib Marwan, Tony is seen calling the field teams with the plate number, saying that it's "Charlie-Victor Alpha-Three-Two-Two." But the plate reads "6CVA322" so he should've said, "Six-Charlie-Victor-Alpha-Three-Two-Two."
