Season 4 generally

Continuity mistake: Series 4 Episode 50 "The Bomb Shelter" When Nate picks up Maya to comfort her after he argued with Barb, he drops the cloth diaper bag, never picking it up again. But when he walks into the house, it's over his shoulder again.

Someone Else's Eyes - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Nate drives his motorcycle out to the cliff overlooking the beach, we see him get off his bike wearing his helmet and glasses. He strides along and then before stopping takes off his helmet and not his glasses. In the very next shot he is squatting down and his glasses are gone, but he made no attempt to take them off and there wasn't enough time in between shots to do so.

Driving Mr. Mossback - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Keith picks up his sleeping niece, the shot from behind him shows her hand on his shoulder, near the side of his neck. When the shot changes to face him, Taylor's arm is wrapped behind his neck, her hand out of view.

In Place of Anger - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: After dinner when Ruth and Nikoli are in the kitchen, Nikoli is drinking vodka; the bottle is on the table next to him. In one shot he is holding his glass and the view suddenly cuts to Ruth but we can still see the table and the bottle; his glass is now next to the bottle. There was no time for him to put it there in between the shots.

An Open Book - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Claire is lying on her bed studying, in the long shot we see an open ring binder and open book on the bed in front of her a few inches apart. The shot cuts to a close up and the book is now on top of the binder.

Crossroads - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: During the hiking trip when Parker is about to lead the group, Claire's water-bottle disappears then reappears from her hand as she's adjusting her backpack.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Right at the end when Nate is looking at people passing by on the street, his facial hair is thicker in some shots than in others. This is because they had some reshoots, as explained by Alan Ball in the commentary.

An Open Book - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the four women are eating KFC, Hannah has her hands by her mouth and is not holding any food. The shot cuts, and her hands are suddenly much lower, and she has a piece of chicken in each hand.

An Open Book - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Nate and Brenda are arguing, just after Brenda sits in the chair, we see from behind that her left hand which is holding a cigarette is held up by her face. The shot cuts to a view from in front and her hand is instantly in her lap.

Question: Is there a website which explains how some of the main character's die at the end of the show? I know how Keith, David and Federico die, but what about Ruth, Brenda and Claire?
