Days of Our Lives

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Oct 2003 - When Belle and Shawn are looking through the photo album, there's a picture of Jen in a wedding dress, and Jack dressed as a fireman. Shawn mentions that was Jack and Jen's first wedding. WRONG. That is when Jack stopped Jen's wedding from Emilio. He faked a fire and kidnapped her. Jennifer and Jack got married at the 'Wild West' arena.

Jack's Revenge

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Shawn Douglas Brady was a ring-bearer, about 4 years old, at the wedding of John Black and Isabella Toscano in 1992. At the wedding, Isabella gave birth to their son Brady. All of the children on the show were recast in 1999 to be much older. Brady Black is now three years older than Shawn, instead of the other way around.

Continuity mistake: The character of Hope Williams Brady was born in real time on January 10, 1974. When the character was believed to be dead in 2000, her tombstone indicated that she had been born in 1963. This was done because the writers had aged the character by about ten years during her absence from the show around 1980.

Continuity mistake: On Christmas, Kate and Roman entered the Brady's celebration and announced that they would be getting married the next day. Sure enough, the next morning, it was to be their wedding day. But as midnight approached after the ceremony, it was New Year's Eve and everybody was getting ready to celebrate the new year, there at the wedding. But it was supposed to be December 26.

Continuity mistake: They never do explain why Kate is covered with blood when she comes screaming back into the wedding reception after Roman is killed. One might assume that it was Roman's blood, but if that's the case then why was Roman's body still underneath the table when the others found it? In that position, Kate couldn't have had nearly enough contact with his corpse to get that much blood on her.

Continuity mistake: Caroline Brady's first name had always been pronounced with a long "i" in the last syllable. This is confirmed by the flashback with Victor that was shown on 11/17/03. However, for the last few weeks, since the character returned to the forefront of the story, everybody has inexplicably pronounced the name with a short "i." This includes Victor in the 11/17/03 episode, immediately after the flashback.

Continuity mistake: On 2/24/04, Marlena struck repeatedly with her knife when she stabbed Jan, thinking it was Shawn. But when Jan reached Nicole on 2/26/04, she had only a single stab wound.

Continuity mistake: In December, when Kate and Roman's wedding started, Chloe's hair was crimped and hanging loose behind her head. By January, while the wedding was still going on, Chloe's hair was instead pulled up in a ponytail, and the hanging portion of her hair was straight.

Continuity mistake: When Shawn Douglas Brady was a small child around 1990, he was friends with Sami, Eric, Carrie, and Nikki Alamain, all of whom were about his age. Somewhere along the way, everyone was aged much more than he was, and now he's supposed to have grown up with Belle Black, who was actually born some six years after him. He's in his sophomore year of college, while his aforementioned, erstwhile friends are all in their late twenties.

Continuity mistake: At the very end of the 11/24/03 episode, Marlena remembered that she ate the vegetable dip right before she collapsed; it is poisoned. At that moment, Hope takes some dip on a carrot and walks past Bo as he confronts Rex. She moves the snack to her mouth and the shot freezes. At the beginning of the 11/25/03 episode, the scene is replayed. Marlena again remembers the dip connection and Hope again takes some dip on a carrot. But before she moves anywhere near Bo, Celeste takes her aside to warn her of impending danger.

Continuity mistake: On 1/20/04, John mentions to Brady that Tony framed him for murder years ago and sent him to death row. But that's not true at all. We now know that it was really Andre, Tony's identical cousin, who did that. John couldn't possibly have forgotten such a thing, because the man killed himself to accomplish the frame-up, and Tony isn't dead.

Continuity mistake: In the episode airing 10/31/05, Dr. North goes to Alice's bar to spy on John and Marlena. Just after he removes the hypnotizing charm from his pocket, Bonnie barrels by and slams into him. You can see the charm on the chain still in Dr. North's hand while he's telling Bonnie to watch it, then he walks away. Although Dr. North never dropped the charm, after he walks away, Bonnie spots the charm on the floor, picks it up, and places it on her chest.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: On 7/13/04, Jan Spears was at Belle's loft as an invited guest for the first time. She walked straight back from the front door to the opposite wall and opened the window there. Mimi, sitting in a window at Rex's loft, saw Jan and reacted with great alarm. But Rex's loft is directly across the hall from Belle's, so there is no way that any window in his loft would be within sight of Belle's back window.

Continuity mistake: On 2/28/06, Bo was speaking to a flight attendant when he turned to speak with Pete and Joe. This was immediately followed by a shot that panned from Pete's and Joe's backs (as well as Bo's, even though he had been facing the other two) across the waiting room. When the shot reached the gate at the far end, the flight attendant standing there was the same woman Bo had been talking to on the opposite side of the room.

Continuity mistake: When Roman is questioning Abe as to who shot him, Abe has a flashback of talking to the soon-to-be shooter and right before he gets shot, he says he's taken all the precautions and has his bullet proof vest on, yet when the paramedics ripped his shirt open to do CPR, there was no vest.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: On 3/11/04, Marlena mentioned that Shawn Douglas is twenty one years old. But that's not in keeping with either of his timelines. He was really born on April 6, 1987, so he should only be sixteen right now. But he was aged previously, and graduated from high school at age eighteen in 2002. Even so, he should still be only twenty at most right now, and more likely nineteen if he still has the same birthday.

Continuity mistake: When Nicolas Alamain returned a couple years ago, he attempted to have an affair with the much older Kate Roberts. The problem with this was that Nicolas was not much younger than his mother Carly, or his almost step father Bo Brady. He had been the same age as Shawn Douglas, but they aged him too far, and there was not enough difference between his and his parents' ages.

Jack's Revenge

Show generally

Continuity mistake: On 12/21/04, Bonnie drags out the story of Julie shoplifting when she was fifteen years old. Bonnie says that Julie stole a mink coat from Barton's department store, and Julie immediately corrects her that it was actually a mink stole. But she doesn't correct Bonnie that the store was Bartlett's, not Barton's. The shoplifting happened in Days of our Lives' very first episode on November 8, 1965.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the 10/16/03 episode, Brady and Philip began to fight in Salem Place. At the same time, Will left the apartment after hearing Sami and Lucas saying they wished he'd never been born, and Victor told Nicole they were going to leave the mansion and go for a walk at Salem Place. The scenes were replayed at the beginning of the 10/17/03 episode, as they usually are, but there was a big discrepancy in the timeframe. While Brady and Philip went through the exact same scene as they began their fight, Sami and Lucas had already spent some time looking for Will around town, and Nicole and Victor had made it down to Salem Place for their walk.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode on 11/15/05, Roman was at Marlena's penthouse. He told Alex to leave. Alex responded that he was just trying to help Marlena. Then Alex went to leave, but Marlena asked him to stay. At the start of the 11/16/05 episode, Roman called Kate from Chez Rouge and told her that a police emergency had called him away, and that he was now at the restaurant. Back at Marlena's penthouse, the conversation was continuing uninterrupted, with John asking Marlena why she wanted Alex to stay, and Alex's story then continuing from where it left off. But if enough time had passed for Roman to deal with a police emergency and then settle in for a leisurely evening, how could the conversation at the penthouse have been at a complete standstill? Since Roman had been in the penthouse with them, and then called Kate who was still in the penthouse, Roman is still tied to the timeline of their storyline thread. Only after the call would it be acceptable for the duration of his activities to not affect the penthouse scene.
