Plot hole: Scully's statement that she was 23 when she wrote her senior thesis in college throws off her timeline of college, med school, residency, FBI Academy, Quantico teaching assignment for two years, and X-Files assignment at 28. Her undergraduate degree in Physics should have been completed when she was 20 or 21 to allow at least 4 or 5 years for her medical training.
Deliberate mistake: When the unconscious, naked Asian doctor is removed from the warming tub, his hands are clasped over his crotch to protect his modesty, despite the fact that he shouldn't be able to do that, since he isn't conscious and his previously frozen limbs are now pliable and relaxed due to the heat.
Deliberate mistake: When Mulder is about to go into the metal detector he puts his gun on the counter. He goes through the metal detector on his cell phone but his keys set it off, when he steps through again it doesn't go off. No cell phones can go through metal detectors without setting it off.
Continuity mistake: While Mulder's waiting for Langly and Frohike to unlock the exit door, Gray-Haired Man keeps shooting at the glass door, and the increasing bullet damage on the glass doesn't stay consistent as more damage occurs, and changes between the closeups and wideshots.

Factual error: In the background the full moon is visible and it's early morning (approx. 6:00 AM). However, at the start of the episode we see the full moon at night (approx. 19:50). Due to the fact that these are consecutive days, this situation is impossible from an astronomic point of view.
Factual error: The last number on the truck's license plate is "77." On Russian plates the last two/three digits stand for a registration place. "77" is a number for Moscow, but the Gulag is located in Krasnoyarsk region, so the number should be different. Besides, the format of the plate (LDDDDL|DD) is incorrect - the correct one is LDDDLL|DD (L - letter, D - digit).
Revealing mistake: The handle and latch next to the supposedly working intercom on the chain-link security gate entrance to the "White Hand" facility is obviously non-functioning - when the gate is opened it can be seen there are no functional operating parts.

Factual error: The first time we see Ed's tattoo, it is supposed to have been freshly done and he even removes the new bandage. However, there is no blood or excess ink on his arm, no redness around the lines, no swelling at all; no way at all that it could be a fresh tattoo.
Continuity mistake: When Scully is searching through the pictures to find Sarah Kavanaugh and Sullivan Biddle, she turns the photographs over and they have a label on them to say who they are. Yet when the shot changes angle to show the photos from the back, the labels have disappeared.
Factual error: When Scully is performing the autopsy on Leonard Betts' severed head, she states "As remains are incomplete, all observations refer to a decapitated head." This phrasing is redundant. The proper terminology would be "disembodied head." As a medical doctor, Scully should know this.
