Plot hole: On 12/21/04, Paloma was selected to light the Christmas tree, and Sam told her that the town's longstanding tradition was for the chosen individual to invite her mother to light the tree with her. But Charity was selected for this honor in 1999, and she invited her boyfriend Miguel to light the tree with her, rather than her Aunt Grace, who was her guardian. Nobody even suggested that she choose a mother figure to stand with her.

Factual error: On 5/18/06, it was simultaneously breakfast time in Rome, Italy, and in Harmony, Maine. But since Rome time is six hours later than Harmony time, this is impossible. Breakfast time in Harmony is lunch time in Rome, and breakfast time in Rome is the middle of the night in Harmony.

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.

Plot hole: In October, 2003, when Sheridan nearly drowned after being dumped off the boat, she found herself in a heavenly setting where her dead mother Katherine guided her "into the light." The next week, Death came and removed her spirit from her hospitalized body while she struggled against it. But wasn't she already dead?.

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.

Plot hole: In April of 2006, Whitney disappeared from the convent very late at night. Later that same night, it was discovered that she was in Rome. But we never saw her get on a plane - only walking through catacombs with the monk the whole time - and even if she did get on a plane, there hadn't been nearly enough time for her to get to Rome.

Revealing mistake: On 10/13/03, Ivy and David are discussing their plans in normal speaking voices while the unsuspecting Grace and John stand within arm's reach. They are well within earshot, yet the audience is expected to believe that Grace and John can't hear them.

Revealing mistake: On 3/3/04, Rebecca had a flier for the benefit concert at the Blue Note. Above a picture of Whitney, it boldly advertises a "Benifit." Notice the misspelling.

Plot hole: When J.T. Cornell's dead body fell out of the wedding cake on 12/28/06, Rebecca fell all over him, lamenting loudly to everyone about how much she loved him, how much he meant to her, and how amazing the sex was. (She was really just looking for his flash drive.) However, Rebecca and Gwen had spent the entire fall trying to prevent Ethan from catching Rebecca and J.T. together, because Ethan was convinced that if Rebecca and J.T. knew each other, then it would mean Rebecca and Gwen were lying about the tabloid, which they were. So Rebecca's behavior should have been a huge tipoff to Ethan, but instead he had no reaction at all to this.

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.

Factual error: Clarice's actions are not in keeping with America's actual child welfare system. Clarice came to Theresa's house to remove Little Ethan on 12/09/03, which in the show was the day after Rebecca claimed Theresa was neglecting the child. There was no investigation of any kind. In a real case of possible child neglect, the home is visited and the family situation is thoroughly investigated before any action is taken.

Plot hole: Sheridan's and Paloma's respective ages do not make sense with respect to the Martin/Katherine storyline. In Martin and Katherine's flashbacks, we saw that Sheridan was a little girl, no older than eight, when they left, while Paloma was a newborn. So Sheridan is about eight years older than Paloma. But when Paloma appeared in Mexico, in May of 2004, she was still a high school student. At the oldest, then, she might be eighteen. Sheridan is about two years older than Ethan, and Ethan has been a practicing lawyer since the show started in July of 1999. So Sheridan must be at least thirty, making her more than twelve years older than Paloma.

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.

Plot hole: There is no doubt that Luis must be the father of Sheridan's baby. Sheridan and Antonio did not make love at any point after July, 2002. When she regained her memory and remembered her love for Luis, she successfully held off Antonio until their wedding in December. Meanwhile, she did make love to Luis several times that summer and fall. Antonio never had a chance to even try to make love to Sheridan after the wedding, because he fell into a coma. He regained consciousness in March, 2003 at the same time that Sheridan learned she was pregnant. Why does she and everyone else act as if the baby could be either Antonio's or Luis's?

Factual error: In the spring of 2006, Whitney traveled from Harmony to Rome, and we are left to assume that she flew. After Whitney had arrived in Rome, Chad and Simone found out and went to Rome to find her. Paloma and Jessica accompanied Simone. After Paloma arrived in Rome and got into some trouble, Theresa and Ethan found out about it and went to Rome as well. So there were three consecutive trips from Harmony to Rome, and they all happened during the same night; Whitney left after dark, and Theresa and Ethan arrived in Rome the following morning. But each flight to Rome should take six hours, and there is a six hour time difference, which adds up to a full twenty-four hours. So nobody who left Harmony at night could have arrived in Rome before morning. And Theresa and Ethan should have arrived in Rome after dark on the second day, not first thing in the morning.

Plot hole: When the doctor told Theresa that she was carrying twins, he told her that each baby had its own amniotic sac and that therefore they were fraternal. This was stated over and over again in the next few episodes. However, identical twins can also have separate amniotic sacs, as long as the egg divides early enough in the pregnancy. It is not uncommon.

Character mistake: At the end of April and the beginning of May in 2004, Luis was decoding the CDs with the Crane secrets on them. For an extended period of time, Luis left the CDs completely unattended at Hank's house. Luis told several different people that the computer was decoding the CDs and didn't need anybody there to do it. Given that Alistair is virtually omniscient in Harmony, it's ridiculous that he didn't break into Hank's apartment and take the CDs.

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?

Show generally

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.

Jessica Bennett: You can't give up on Charity, Miguel. Would Leonardo give up on Kate? Would Ross give up on Rachel? Would Bo give up on Hope?
