Within (1) - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: When Scully points out the location of the last time they saw Gibson Praise, she points to the (real) Palo Verde Nuclear Plant, which is west of Phoenix. In 'The Beginning' the plant shown was the (fictional) Rolling Hills Nuclear Plant, 60 miles east of Phoenix.

Redrum - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When Martin takes out the nanny-cam from the bear, the lens-protection is on so the camera could not have recorded anything.

Invocation - S8-E5

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.

Via Negativa - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: When Doggett leaves his office, he reaches for his coat, grabs it and starts to put it on. In the next shot, when Langly, Frohike, and Byers look in Doggett's direction, we again see that he takes the coat off from the chair.

Existence (2) - S8-E21

Continuity mistake: When Knowle Rohrer is talking with Agent Doggett face to face in a separate room about the super-soldier project, he is wearing a red FBI badge, but in the previous scene when he came to visit Doggett, he was wearing a regular FBI badge.

Existence (2) - S8-E21

Continuity mistake: When Agent Reyes is aiming at the oncoming car of a ranger, in the front shot the windscreen of the car is completely covered with dirt and fully opaque, while filmed from the ranger's side the windscreen seems to be transparent and relatively clean.

Per Manum - S8-E13

Continuity mistake: When Scully enters her apartment, the blinds are up and there is quite a lot of light in the room. However, when the flashback with Mulder ends, during which Scully was supposedly standing still, the shades are rolled down and there is much less light in the room.

Medusa - S8-E12

Revealing mistake: The establishing shot of Boston General Hospital at the end of the episode shows the same building that was used for the BYU Medical Center in Provo, Utah eight episodes earlier in "Roadrunners" (note the vegetation under the part of the building that extends over the curb and the lettering on the building that says "Entry A"). The actual building is presumably in Kansas since the Kansas state flag was visible outside the building in the aforementioned episode.

Serious B

Invocation - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: In this episode the character of Billy Underwood was played by twin brothers Kyle and Ryan Pepi. If you pay attention you can tell when one twin was being used instead of the other as one of them has two freckles on his neck and another two by his right eye whereas the other does not.

Roadrunners - S8-E4

Factual error: The end of the episode shows Scully recuperating at the BYU Medical Center in Provo, Utah. However, on the flagpole outside of the center you can see the Kansas state flag.

Existence (2) - S8-E21

Continuity mistake: Just before Skinner shoots Alex Krycek in the head, Alex is lying weakly on the ground, having already been shot twice. However, as Skinner makes the kill shot, Alex is suddenly standing and falls to the ground upon impact of the bullet, with no time (or strength) for him to have risen. Also, the last shot of the dead Alex shows his face and his nostrils flare from breathing.

Three Words - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: When Mulder sits at the computer terminal in the census records room, we see two empty boxes on the screen, one for an ID and one for a password. The shot cuts to Mulder, then back to the screen and shows him typing the password, while the ID has already been typed in; it is very long and there wasn't time in between shots or nearly enough clicks of keys for Mulder to have entered that ID.
