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?

Plot hole: As of December, 2003, there seems to be no reason for Fox to not tell Whitney how he feels about her. Chad is out of the picture, and Whitney is enjoying her time with Fox. At the very least, he could ask her out on a date; all indications are that she'd certainly say yes. Instead, for no apparent reason, they're dragging out the storyline where Whitney thinks Fox is in love with Theresa and he won't tell her that he's really in love with her.

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.

Plot hole: On 1/3/06, after a downdraft drove smoke into the living room, Julian successfully used the control panel to unseal the room. The only door that was actually shown to have opened was an opening onto an outside patio. Since the room was full of smoke, the outside exit would have been by far the most attractive option. Yet, for some reason, everyone scattered in different directions, mostly further into the house.

Continuity mistake: On 1/29/04, Whitney tells Julian that she has been suspicious of him and Eve for weeks. But she only became suspicious after she saw them kissing, earlier that same day. Even though weeks had passed for the viewers, it was the same day for everyone in Harmony.

Plot hole: During the summer of 2004, a single day in the lives of the characters lasted more than six weeks for the viewers. During the night of this day, far more happened than could ever really happen in one night. In the middle of that night, after Theresa's ordeal on the cliff (which started at night and must have taken several hours by itself), Luis and Sheridan flew to Mexico and had plenty of time to explore Puerto Arena and fight with Paloma. Just the flight to Mexico should have taken most of the night in the first place.

Plot hole: On 1/14/05, the prison guard announced that he was taking his ten minute break, and then he simply left Gwen (the prisoner) alone with Sheridan (her visitor). There's no way that a prison guard would be taking his break without being relieved by another guard.

Other mistake: On 12/25/03, everybody is making a big deal about how Sheridan is breastfeeding Martin, and how this will save the baby's life because he's finally feeding. But the baby's problem was never that it was refusing to eat, but rather that it could not absorb nutrition. The baby was previously fed a nutrient solution with all the same nutrients found in breast milk, and he consumed it, but didn't absorb the nutrients. Eve doesn't have any medical equipment with her at the church, so even if the baby really is absorbing the nutrition, she would have no way to determine that right there while it's happening.

Revealing mistake: On 10/27/03, Tabitha was visited by the ghost of Timmy. When he approached little Endora, it was apparent from the back of his head that it wasn't Josh Ryan Evans. This was obvious even without the knowledge that the young actor died more than a year earlier.

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. However, flashbacks years later showed that Martin left Harmony with Katherine in the evening, after the Founder's Day dance that he attended with Pilar.

Plot hole: Sam seems inordinately amazed when Ivy gets out of her wheelchair on 12/24/03. A full year prior to that, she got out of the chair and danced with Sam at their son's wedding. Although that was detrimental to her recovery at the time, it seems that the incident was immediately forgotten, rather than everybody expecting her to be able to walk again soon.

Continuity mistake: On 3/16/06, Whitney leaves the convent in the night to take a walk, and ends up at Chad's recording studio. But when Whitney first went to the convent, it was far enough away from Harmony that Theresa had to drive her there.

Continuity mistake: On 1/14/04, Sam tells TC that if someone had told him the previous month that Grace would be with David now, he wouldn't have believed it. But Grace chose David on 11/14/03, so it would already have been a fact during the entirety of the month in question.

Continuity mistake: Season 1, Episode 3, 7/7/99. When Ethan leaves the tent covered in paint, he heads for his car. When he gets there, the spilled paint is completely different from what it was before.

Plot hole: During the 10/11/04 and 10/12/04 episodes, Whitney steals an experimental drug in order to drug Fox, heads to the Crane pool to find him and enters the pool area carrying two drinks. Fox has his back to her and is working out with a punching bag. Whitney then stands behind him, puts the drug in the drink and mixes it up. Wouldn't it have made more sense for Whitney to do that before she entered the Crane pool area? In addition, she has a conversation with herself out loud as she prepares the drinks. She then goes and changes to a swim suit, carries the drinks to the pool, and is getting into the water before Fox ever realizes she is there.

Plot hole: On 5/17/04, Paloma arrived home with her friends, and they were all dressed in school uniforms, talking in Spanish about the homework they need to do for the next day. But it was long past midnight in Harmony; Kay's dress disintegrated at midnight, and it was only after that that Pilar collapsed and Julian was shot, and both had been treated at the hospital by the time Paloma was introduced in Mexico. Even if she was in far western Mexico (Puerto Arena is fictitious, so there's no way to know.), it must have been at least 10pm, or maybe even past midnight. So why was Paloma just getting home from school?

Other mistake: On 9/13/05, Theresa tried to reach into the furnace to retrieve the disks that Gwen destroyed. With one hand in the fire, she used her other hand to brace herself against the furnace door while Pilar tried to pull her away. After Pilar succeeded, Theresa's arm that had been in the furnace was badly burned. However, the hand that had been gripping the door of the furnace, which should also have been infernally hot, was unharmed.

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.

Plot hole: On 5/16/05, Ethan tells the judge that Gwen "has never shown any indication of a violent nature whatsoever." However, in October of 2000, Gwen locked Pilar in a closet and chased after Theresa with a baseball bat, and then attempted to viciously strangle Theresa. Ethan witnessed part of this attack. Even if he was willing to go into the courtroom and lie about that, why wouldn't Theresa expose the fact that he was lying?
