Continuity mistake: The timeline in the episode is inconsistent. Right after the first courtroom scene, we see the three sisters at home, and Phoebe says that "Cole was an angel in that courtroom yesterday." Later, Cole says that he regrets the criminal being let go, "today." But they are talking about the same events.
Continuity mistake: When Prue talks to Piper after stopping her phone conversation, she tells her that "the Sin Balls work a lot faster than [they] thought. Once infected, the victim only has a few hours before it drives them to total self-destruction." However, this is almost verbatim what was written in the Book of Shadows. It could be easily read by the viewing audience when the book entry was shown. So all three sisters should already know this.
Continuity mistake: When the girls are saying goodbye to their father, Phoebe hugs him around the neck, then lowers her arms while they talk. When her father says "About anything," her left arm jumps back up to being around his neck, and in the next shot, it's down at the side again.
Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Prue look in the Book of Shadows for the spell to summon Belthazor, it is written with the same artistic calligraphy as the rest of the Book. But this spell was written by the sisters themselves in episode 3-8: "Sleuthing With The Enemy." As a result, it should have a handwritten appearance similar to the pages Phoebe was working on at the beginning of this episode.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cole has caught Phoebe's karate kick at school, Phoebe's hands are both clutching her school books. In the following shot, her left arm is in a completely different position, and there's no reason for her to have moved it.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Eva is teaching the sisters about ways to draw power on All Hallows Eve, she cuts an apple in half and puts a leaf over the seeds in the center. The leaf goes from small and only covering the center to bigger and covering more of the apple.
Continuity mistake: The only way any of the charmed ones can see the fairies is with the fairy dust, but in several other later seasons and episodes when the charmed ones need the magical community's help they can see the fairies without any help from fairy dust or a spell.
Continuity mistake: Kit the cat shows up in Something Wicca this Way Comes (Episode 1,1), as the girls' familiar once they have received their powers. It is obvious that the cat just showed up by comments made by the girls, along the lines of "where did this cat come from" (not literally). However, in Pre-Witched (Episode 3,17), they make the same kinds of comments about Kit just showing up in this episode, which is suppose to have happened 6 months before Episode 1,1.
Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is looking in the Book of Shadows for information about Eames, she comes across the Belthazor page, and lays the page down flat. In the following shots, the page moves to her hand, then lying down flat, then to her hand again.
