Continuity mistake: The morning after the tsunamis, Little Ethan was at Pilar's house. He came running out of his bedroom and accidentally saw Rachel's corpse. Later, Ethan Winthrop and Gwen came to the house, but left alone. Theresa later left the house, and then Alistair brought her into the Crane mansion with much fanfare. She entered alone, and then went up to see Jane, still alone. But when we next saw her, she was in Jane's bedroom with Little Ethan, even though Little Ethan never left Pilar's house.

Continuity mistake: On 1/23/05, Theresa told Ethan that Gwen had a CD proving that she had lied to him, but destroyed it before Theresa could use it against her. However, the proof that Gwen destroyed in Theresa's presence was not a CD, but rather a floppy disk.

Continuity mistake: On 6/24/04, Fox told Whitney that the kitchen at the Sea Cliff Inn had closed for the night. He managed to convince the cook to make a couple of hamburgers for him and Whitney. (This happened offscreen, but they talked about it before and after.) Later that same night, on 7/6/04, Fox and Whitney went with Theresa and Chad to have a full dinner at the hotel's restaurant, hours after the kitchen had supposedly closed for the night.

Continuity mistake: On 4/30/04, Even and Julian were talking in the park. Eve told Julian not to protect her by confessing falsely to raping her, in part because T.C. would kill him before he could even be put in prison for his other crimes. It was full daylight. The next time we saw them, Julian was making his immediate response to that statement, pointing out that T.C. wouldn't have a chance to get near him. But it was pitch black, even though only a few moments had passed.

Continuity mistake: On 7/4/05, Eve says to Julian, "Miles is your grandson, too, even if Chad doesn't know it." Julian is Chad's father, and Chad is the baby's biological father, but Whitney has told everybody that Fox is Miles' father; Eve and Julian know the truth. However, Julian is also Fox's father, so Chad does know that Julian is Miles' grandfather, even if it's for a different reason than he thinks.

Continuity mistake: Early in 2006, when she was planning to become a nun, Whitney whipped herself on the back to punish herself for her sins, injuring herself badly. In December of that year, she got married and wore a gown that revealed much of her back, but there were no scars at all.

Continuity mistake: In late February, Eve confronted Whitney about deliberately malnourishing herself and her baby. Whitney was many months pregnant, but had not gained any weight. The actress is very skinny, and was not wearing a pregnancy pad. Later, around the second week in March, Whitney suddenly had a round belly, since the actress was wearing a small pad. However, it was supposed to be later the same night for all the characters, so her body couldn't have changed like that.

Continuity mistake: On 11/25/03, Ethan says that Gwen confronted Theresa the day after she saw her and Ethan kissing on television. But Gwen actually confronted Theresa later the same night. In fact, it is still impossibly late that same night when Ethan makes this statement.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the 5/24/04 episode, Luis put Sheridan into the back seat of his car and drove off with her while she insisted that she didn't want to go. At the beginning of the 5/25/04 episode, Sheridan was sitting in the front, still insisting that Luis take her home. But how did she get into the front seat?

Continuity mistake: In every single scene that Theresa appeared in for an entire week in October, 2003, some member of the hospital staff was telling her to leave the premises immediately. She was told "for the last time" at least six times, and Dr. Taylor said twice that he was going to call security. Yet Theresa stayed at the hospital without anybody actually doing anything about it, and she managed to exacerbate Gwen's condition three separate times.

Continuity mistake: Several times during the tsunamis, in the week of 8/1/05, Sam Bennett's shirt would switch between being yellow to a light orange from shot to shot. The orange shirt was distinctly darker than the yellow one, even when both were soaking wet. Actor James Hyde was wearing the yellow shirt, but his stunt double had the orange one.

Continuity mistake: When the show started in July of 1999, Gwen Hotchkiss and Sheridan Crane barely knew each other. When Gwen and Ethan were on the beach in Harmony, Gwen asked Ethan many questions about Sheridan. Later, when Gwen and Sheridan met in Paris, Sheridan asked Gwen a lot about her relationship with Ethan. Both exchanges made it clear that Gwen and Sheridan were not well acquainted. However, years later, Gwen and Sheridan often spoke about having been lifelong friends, even though they had only known each other for a few years.

Continuity mistake: Throughout 2000-2001, the character of Ethan Crane was said to have three sisters who were all away at boarding school. By 2003, he instead had just two still-absent sisters, and a brother, Fox, who now appears on the show. (By siblings, I mean children who were raised as Julian and Ivy's.)

Continuity mistake: On 2/1/05, at the beginning of the episode, Gwen cornered Theresa and tried to stab her with scissors. Theresa was in her wheelchair, backed up against a wall, and Gwen was standing right over her. Gwen swung her arm, and a wet thud was heard. Then it went to the credits. When it came back, there was a medical supply cart between them, and Theresa was using it to fend Gwen off. But the cart hadn't been seen before, and would have needed to already be between Gwen and Theresa in the last wide shot in order for Theresa to use it like she did just a few seconds later.

Continuity mistake: On 6/24/05, Sam and Luis were trying to break through a wall in the Crane mansion. The sound of metal on metal is heard, and Pilar asks what has happened. Luis and Sam explain that they've just hit a metal barrier that they think must conceal the room they're looking for. But several square feet of metal are already exposed. Why wasn't the metallic sound heard earlier, and why is everyone acting like they've only just discovered this second barrier?

Continuity mistake: On 10/19/04, Fox refers to Ethan as his "oldest half-brother," but in reality Chad is his oldest half-brother. Fox is specifically thinking about all the changes to his family, and everyone knows that Julian was with Eve before he married Ivy, so it's a no-brainer that Chad is older than Ethan.

Continuity mistake: Throughout December, 2004, Luis and Sheridan talked about how their wedding would be the day after Christmas. Then, during the several episodes that took place on Christmas Eve, there was a Christmas tree lighting and the characters went to midnight mass. After that, Luis and Sheirdan went to bed together on 12/27/04 and woke up together on 12/28/04, and it was their wedding day, when it should instead have been Christmas Day, the day before their wedding.

Continuity mistake: On 9/27/99, in LA, Henry gives Chad a newspaper that was left in his family's apartment when Chad was abandoned at age eight. It is a Harmony Herald. Then we see Theresa and Whitney walking in front of a Harmony Herald newspaper box in Harmony, and the paper is identical to the one that Chad's family left behind about a decade earlier.

Continuity mistake: On 7/19/05, Luis mentions his and Sheridan's past life in ancient Egypt. The viewers know about this past life, because Tabitha told Timmy about it. However, unlike their past lives on the Titanic and in 19th century America, which they experienced firsthand, Luis and Sheridan themselves never learned about their past life as Antony and Cleopatra.

Continuity mistake: The week of 12/8/03, Child Protective Services took Little Ethan from Theresa. As one would expect, she became hysterically upset. But after her son was gone, Theresa calmed down enough to call the police station and Luis' cell phone, all while speaking and acting completely rationally. When she realized that everybody was at Sarah's funeral with their cell phones off, she decided to go there. Inexplicably, by the time she got there, she was completely hysterical again.

Continuity mistake: On 10/6/03, Theresa called home to talk to her mother Pilar and her son Ethan. Ethan, born in the summer of 2002, had not been seen on the show for a little while, and was now much older than previously. He was about two or three years old.

Continuity mistake: On 7/12/04, Sheridan has a repressed memory of herself with bloody hands, holding a bloody letter opener. She tells Luis that, although she has had these nightmares before, this is the first time she saw the letter opener and realized that it was where the blood came from. But we saw Sheridan's nightmares many times between 1999 and 2001, and the letter opener had always been there.

Continuity mistake: On 5/17/04, when we saw Pilar's hospital room, the people there were different from the people shown there when we last saw the room on 5/14/04, even though the action was continuous. Kay, Charity, and Baby Maria were all in the room with the Lopez-Fitzgeralds when Father Lonigan announced that they were going to begin praying on 5/14. On 5/17, they began the prayer, but the two young women and the baby were gone, while Whitney and Chad had suddenly appeared in the room.

Continuity mistake: The show is woefully inconsistent in regards to when conversations can and cannot be overheard. Tabitha, Ivy, Kay, and Liz all routinely eavesdrop through closed plate-glass windows. On the other hand, Whitney could not hear Chad and LaToya speaking through an open doorway. Also, years ago, Ethan somehow couldn't hear Theresa talking to Pilar about her love for him even though he was standing on the landing directly above them. To contrast, Days Of Our Lives has managed to avoid such egregious discrepancies.

Continuity mistake: Theresa arrives in LA the same day as Ethan. That night he accidentally crawls into bed with her. The next day they all wake up and discover Ethan in bed with Theresa. At one point (in the same episode) characters refer to what happened between Ethan and Theresa and state that it happened the night before. At another point characters refer to what happened and state that it happened a few days ago.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the 9/10/03 episode, the song "Number 1 Crush" is about halfway through when Theresa removes Fox's shirt as they dance seductively. At the beginning of the 9/11/03 episode, the scene is replayed just as the song starts, but Fox is already shirtless.

Continuity mistake: On March 10 and 11, 2004, a group of characters sings an original song, "Shugga Shugga Shugga," on the stage of the Blue Note. The song plays as background through numerous scenes, and lasts for more than twenty minutes. But the same two or three verses were simply played over and over again. In fact, the song is available on the show's website, and is not even five minutes long.

Continuity mistake: On 7/4/05, it was late at night and Alistair had just kissed Theresa. Pilar was warning her to stay away from him. Theresa was wearing a black, sleeveless dress, and Pilar was wearing a blue blouse and a matching light jacket. On 7/5/05, it was morning, which made sense because the characters had been saying through the past several episodes that it was almost morning. Theresa and Pilar were in the middle of the same conversation, unmoved from their previous location in front of the Crane mansion, but Theresa was wearing a white blouse with a floral print and Pilar's outfit was black.

Continuity mistake: During January 2005, Sheridan gets attached to a stuffed bear that her mother gave her as a child. At one point, Sheridan is sleeping and has the bear with her in bed. She then proceeds to start sleepwalking and leaves the bear in her bed and then leaves her house. Later that evening, her mother enters the bedroom looking for Sheridan and the stuffed bear has somehow managed to move to a chair across the room.

Continuity mistake: On 9/22/03, when Nicole first appeared, there was a close-up of her while she was talking to Fox, and she stepped down into the swimming pool (We heard the splashes and she moved downwards.). In the wide shot that immediately followed, Nicole was back on the concrete at the edge of the pool, and she again stepped down onto the first step in the water.

Continuity mistake: Early in the life of the show, around late 1999, Tabitha said that Charity would gain her full powers if she lost her virginity, and that those powers would be a thousand times stronger if she lost it to Miguel. Now, on 1/22/04, Tabitha says that Charity will only become a threat if she makes love to Miguel, and not if she has sex with someone else. Evidently, she won't come into her powers at all unless she loses her virginity to Miguel specifically.

Continuity mistake: On 11/7/03, Antonio finally realizes that Luis and Sheridan are in love and he has a series of rapid flashbacks of compromising situations in which he has caught them. One of those scenes is when Antonio almost saw Luis and Sheridan cuddling post-coitally in Sheridan's bedroom, but "luckily" went temporarily blind an instant before he looked in the window. So why could he see them together in his flashback?

Continuity mistake: In July of 1999, Luis tried to convince Pilar to divorce Martin or have him declared dead, so that she could remove his name from the deed on their house in order to refinance. However, later flashbacks showed that the Lopez-Fitzgerald family lived in a cottage on the Crane grounds at the time of Martin's disappearance, which means that Martin's name wouldn't be on the deed of the house the family later moved into.

Continuity mistake: On 8/18/05, Noah protests Sam's offer to set up the garage apartment for him. He says that he'll just use his old room. But Noah wouldn't have an "old room" in this house, as the house he grew up in was sucked through a portal into Hell while he was away at college.

Continuity mistake: On 5/31/05, Martin refers to having been with Katherine for "more than twenty years." But he's only been with Katherine since they left Harmony together, which happened after the birth of Martin's youngest daughter Paloma. And Paloma graduated from high school about a year earlier, so she's not quite twenty herself, meaning Martin and Katherine have been together for at most nineteen years.

Continuity mistake: When Eve arrived home from LA on 11/28/03, she had changed her clothes since the last time she'd been seen. But Eve and TC weren't shown with luggage at any point in time; they went to LA on the spur of the moment to help Whitney. And even if she did have other clothes with her, there was never a chance for to change into them, since they went from the hospital straight to the airport.

Continuity mistake: On 3/17/06, Sam and Ivy had a conversation about Kay that was largely at odds with previous events and information from the show. In particular, they talk about how Kay pursued Miguel from a very early age. However, when the show began in 1999, Kay and Simone were in high school and their dialogue established in the very first episode that Kay had only very recently developed a romantic interest in Miguel. Furthermore, most of Harmony, including Sam and Miguel himself, didn't learn of Kay's interest until several years after that.

Continuity mistake: When Sheridan faked her own death in 2001 to escape from the drug cartel, she was buried alive. Timmy and Tabitha dug up the grave, and it was deep enough for Tabitha to stand in, upright, without her head reaching above the surface; it appeared to be the standard six feet deep. Then Julian had the grave filled in with cement after a token amount of dirt was shoveled in. But when the men broke apart the cement with their shovels, it was only about six inches thick. And when they finally dug through the cement and dirt, the coffin was also much closer to the surface than it had been before.

Continuity mistake: On 7/28/05 and 7/29/05, a few episodes after Harmony, which is in Maine, was hit by an earthquake, the two men at the Tsunami Warning Center say that a tsunami is heading directly towards Harmony. It had previously been said that the earthquake's epicenter had been just offshore of Harmony, so the statement makes sense. However, they then looked at a computer graphic that showed the tsunami originating from far out in the Atlantic and heading westwards towards the entire eastern seaboard, as if the quake had occurred in the central or eastern Atlantic instead of near New England.

Continuity mistake: On 7/6/05, Ivy mentions to Katherine that Rachel, Katherine's sister, had died before she, Ivy, married Julian. But since Ivy believes Alistair's story about Rachel dying in a boating accident, she should believe that Rachel died before Alistair married Katherine. And since Ivy is slightly younger than Julian, that means she thinks Rachel died before she was even born. Consequently, why would she cite Rachel's death in relation to an event in her life, rather than in terms of predating it altogether?

Continuity mistake: On 8/1/05, when the lamppost fell on T.C., you could see in the side view that T.C. was entirely in front of the lamppost from that perspective, so that they fell side by side, and T.C. landed perpendicular to the pole. Then, in the overhead shot immediately thereafter, T.C. was instead pinned by the street lamp, and it was lying mostly lengthwise across him.

Continuity mistake: In July of 1999, in talking about Martin's disappearance, Pilar said that he left for work one morning, but never showed up there or at home ever again.

Continuity mistake: On 6/23/05, Noah and Fancy kissed towards the end of the episode. Then they squabbled over who had followed whom to Harmony, both insisted that they were lifelong Harmony residents, and both accusatory asked each other, "Who are you?" before the police officer came up behind them and said, "That's what I'd like to know." Then, on 6/24/05, at the beginning of the episode, Noah and Fancy shared the same kiss, but then Fancy immediately and dreamily asked, "Who are you?" Then the police officer came up and delivered the same line as before.

Continuity mistake: On 10/13/03, Gwen's memories come rushing back, of how Theresa contributed to her losing her baby. One of the memories is of seeing Ethan and Theresa making out on televesion. But she remembers it completely differently from how it really happened. When she was upset at what she saw on television while the doctors were there, what she was seeing was Julian and Rebecca denouncing Theresa's charitable contributions. When she saw the kiss, she was alone in her hospital room. In the flashback, the two scenes are merged.

Continuity mistake: On 3/4/05, Kay thinks about how Tabitha told her that "all Bennett women have powers." But it's not the Bennett women who have powers, but rather the Standish women. Kay happens to be both, because her father is Sam Bennett and her mother is Grace Bennett (nee Standish), but it's Grace's family that holds the powers, not Sam's. That's why Charity Standish and Grace's sister Faith had powers, as does Grace herself.
