Factual error: The townspeople contracted Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) from the bodies they consumed and it showed up in the brain tissue within a matter of weeks. However, this extremely rare disease takes several years to even be detectable. (00:18:55)
Continuity mistake: General Callahan, who is referred to as General Callahan throughout the episode by Mulder, gets called "Lieutenant" Callahan in the last scenes in the steam-room, while lying on the floor.
Revealing mistake: While Mulder, Scully, and the groundskeeper are walking through Folkstone Municipal Cemetery, there is a partially hidden but still conspicuous sign that reads "Vancouver Cemetery." (00:18:45)
Continuity mistake: When Mulder and Scully first see the artifact rubbing in Skinner's office, the rubbing is quite faint and lightly done. A couple of times during the episode, the rubbing becomes darker and heavier drawn.
Continuity mistake: When Scully arrives to investigate the kid who was crushed by the bleachers the time stamp says 5:10AM. It seems strange that the investigation would start the next morning, unless the high school holds basketball practice at 3:00 in the morning. (00:16:35)
Factual error: Mulder calls the dust in Maleeni's van "lycopodium powder" that the Los Angeles Police Department used to collect fingerprints, but the real LAPD uses latent print powder not lycopodium. (00:06:35)
Continuity mistake: When the psychic collapses, sun is streaming through the window, indicating early afternoon. When we see the ambulance driving away a few scenes later, it's dark outside. It's highly unlikely it took a medic team several hours to get there and stabilise her.
Continuity mistake: In the pre-credits sequence when the gunman is shot by the police officer, he initially clutches a wound on his right side. When he is shown lying down, the bullet wound is higher up and on his left side.
