Solitary - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: After telling Danielle what is written on the back of Nadia's photo, Sayid steps closer to Danielle. When Sayid says, "The only way off this place..." in the shot facing him Danielle holds the gun up high and points it straight at Sayid's chest. Yet, in both the previous and following shots facing Danielle, the gun is pointing down towards Sayid's legs. She then lowers the gun and sits down.

Continuity mistake: When Sayid is pulled upside down in the trap, he swings toward the tree and is stabbed by the branch. It is an entirely different branch in each of the following shots: first - when he is stabbed, second - when it sticks out of his thigh, third - when he pulls it out. (00:03:20)

Solitary - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Sayid steps into the trap, in the close-up of his feet he removes his right foot, and the left remains on the ground, inside the closing rope. However, in the next shot as he's lifted in the air, it's his right leg that is caught up in the trap. (00:03:15)

Continuity mistake: In the first minute of the episode when Sayid finds the wire on the beach, his left pant leg is not torn. When he follows the wire into the jungle, just before he trips Danielle's trap, the left leg of his pants is already torn, in exactly the place where the branch will stab him. (00:02:50)

Deux Ex Machina - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Jack speaks to Michael and Jin, as they build the raft, and then when he walks up the beach and inquires about Sawyer's trouble with his head, the backpack that Jack carries on his back is nylon, black/green with white trim. Yet, when Sawyer asks, "Sensitivity to light, that bad?" the backpack is suddenly transformed into solid black leather, of an entirely different style. Then, in following shots it jumps back and forth. (00:16:40)
