Ashes to Ashes - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Rube's talking to the graffiti artist, he's painting what looks like a blue cat. We cut away, hear a brief paint spray, then cut back. There's now far more painted than that spray could have achieved, and what was there already has changed as well.

The Shallow End - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Daisy takes Stan to church, she takes a seat in the fourth row and sets her purse down. After the window breaks, she runs outside, leaving her purse in the pew. When she returns to find Stan gone, the purse is in the fifth row.

Forget Me Not - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When George writes Nina's name on the sticky note she holds it up and we see the writing is small but then we see a close up and the writing it bigger and the handwriting is a little different.


Ashes to Ashes - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Daisy is in the diner with the other reapers talking about her acting job, the fruit in her hand changes from a red grape or cherry to a green grape.

Hurry - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: In the airport, when Mrs. Thibideaux (Roxy's reap) sees the cluttered luggage holding up her suitcase, she climbs over the first few bags and tosses the others down. Before she even started climbing, the conveyer belt was stopped which meant the luggage that she climbed over (including what looked like a bag with skis) would still be in the way. Yet when she falls, it's a clean slide down to break her neck.

The Shallow End - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode George is wearing a sweater that is stained with large blood splatter. During the actual reap she is splattered with blood but the pattern is very different, both in quantity of blood and the splatter locations on her sweater.

The Ledger - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Rube is going to give his keys to George, Daisy has a cup in her right hand, at her lips, and is looking at George. Next frame, opposite angle, she has the cup in her left hand, at chest level, and is looking at Rube. (00:14:20)

Death Defying - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Mason takes the notebook from Roxy, the camera is off the corner of the table showing all four seated at the booth. Roxy reaches across the table with one hand and for her gun with the other and starts to explain she will shoot Mason. The camera moves for a close up on Roxy and her hands are now in front of her, folded on the table.


Death Defying - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: In the bar, just after Ray lost a pool game to Mason, they are watching a boxing match on TV. Ray begins to rack the balls and pulls out 4-5 balls and places them in the rack. The camera switches back and forth, Ray again pulls 4-5 balls out and racks them, but the original ones are gone. The camera switches back and forth again and when Ray is done racking the balls, the balls are in a different order than he placed. He is watching Mason, not looking where he places the balls. Watch the 2 and 11 balls.


Pilot (2 hours) - S1-E1

Plot hole: People who do not have their souls retrieved, before they are killed, will suffer the effects of the death on their soul, eg. the autopsied man has scars and cuts on his soul. So how come the woman who was crushed by a piano (whose soul was only ever retrieved afterwards) is unharmed in soul form?
