Deliberate mistake: As Ray drives the pickup truck, an oncoming vehicle beeps and the marshal heads behind Ray's pickup. In the shot through the cab's rear window facing the bed, as the marshal pulls behind, the bed's side wall interior is seen (note the metal loop tie down on top) and the entire tailgate is gone; yet the tailgate is intact later, when the pickup flips over. The tailgate was removed for the shot to allow visibility of the marshal's vehicle.

Continuity mistake: When the marshal and Ray drive their vehicles down the long road, the endless line of telephone poles are on their left as they drive, with barren land on their right. However, when they pass the third vehicle the poles are on their right and then repeatedly change sides in the following shots. (This has nothing to do with camera angles.)
Revealing mistake: With Marshal Mars in pursuit, as Ray drives his pickup, he holds the steering wheel with his left hand, and his stiff prosthetic right arm is down at his side. When Kate grabs for the steering wheel, in the side exterior shot the stunt driver is quite noticeable, as he grips and turns the steering wheel with his good right hand/arm.
Continuity mistake: When Jack removes the paper with Kate's mugshot from the marshal's jacket pocket, in the close-up of the paper there is no writing at the top center of the paper, only at the sides. However, in the previous shot the center writing is visible from behind, and is also perfectly seen when Hurley finds the paper.

Continuity mistake: When Kate leans over the unconscious marshal he wakes and chokes her, and when Jack subdues him the marshal's large head bandage falls off. When Jack squeezes water into the marshal's mouth, the bandages are wrapped perfectly round his head, yet when Kate stands up the bandages are off again.
Continuity mistake: When Kate pulls Ray from the burning pickup, in the first shot as she drags him across the grass his overall suspenders are not on - they are not clasped shut. However, as Kate drags him, a few shots later the suspenders are properly clasped on.
Revealing mistake: When Kate pulls Ray from the burning pickup, he has bloody bruises at the center and right side of his forehead. As she drags him across the grass, in the shot when she grunts, the bruises on his forehead are at the center and left side of his forehead. This shot is flipped.
Revealing mistake: When Kate is with Ray in his pickup, he wears his wedding band on his left hand, and his right arm is prosthetic. After the wreck, when Kate pulls him from the cab and onto the grass, he wears his ring on his right hand, the door and Kate's bracelet are also on the wrong side - obviously a flipped shot.
Continuity mistake: When Ray and Kate are in the pickup, in the shot facing the oncoming vehicle as it beeps, Ray is driving in his right lane. In the next shot, whilst the vehicle still beeps, as the marshal pulls behind Ray, the marshal and Ray are both driving in their left lane. However, in the next shot, facing the beeping vehicle, Ray is driving in his right lane and then starts to pull over to his left.
Continuity mistake: After Locke whispers to Michael, "I thought you should be the one to bring his dog back to him," when Locke points in the wide shot, Walt, who is sleeping on his stomach, has his head facing away from Michael. But when Michael says, "Hey thanks," Walt's head faces the opposite way towards Michael, and in the next shot he faces away again.
Continuity mistake: When Marshal Mars pulls behind Ray's pickup, as the third vehicle beeps, the camera pans to the back of the cab. The cab window, behind Kate and Ray, is slid open to allow a clear view of the marshal pulling behind. In previous and following shots, the windows behind them are closed.
Revealing mistake: When Kate is in Ray's pickup, as they drive down the road, she looks into her side view mirror twice, over a minute apart. Firstly, the road that passes in the view reflected in the mirror is perfectly identical in both instances that Kate looks at it, which is impossible - the same shot is used twice. Secondly, the road that passes Ray's truck is completely different to the road that passes in the view reflected in the side mirror, they are obviously edited together.
Revealing mistake: When Sayid, Kate, Sawyer and the others make camp for the night, on their way back from hearing the French woman's transmission, they sit around the fire talking. Sawyer has a cut over his right eye, but in every other close-up of Sawyer the cut is over his left eye. The shots are flipped.
Revealing mistake: After Kate rescues Ray, she pulls out his prosthetic right arm. In the following shots, his upper body is deliberately shown and there is a blatantly apparent outline and very long wide bulge of the actor's right arm, under his shirt and overalls.
