Continuity mistake: While the mother is driving her children to school in a minivan, both the driver's seat and the front passenger seat change from having the headrest/whiplash protector being attached to the seats (non-removable), to having the adjustable kind that have been removed.
Continuity mistake: When Charlie is in his office talking to Larry, while going over the potential killers and victims, he writes the word "Killers" on the board and circles it. Then, when Charlie notices that Larry has left and says "gone", the writing is different. The 'k' is wider, and most noticeably, the left side of the circle is gone, and the loop in his 's' disappears. Once Charlie goes back to working, the word changes back to how it was originally written. (00:38:20)
Visible crew/equipment: After Charlie tells Alan that he and Amita have a lot of work to do and that Alan's hovering over them, when Alan walks away from the table we can see the actor's tape marks on the floor where he had been standing, and also more blocking tape on the rug and kitchen floor.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Don's at the parking garage with Rachel Abbott's car he realises that the killer had been watching Karen Silber's house, and when they rush off to her house there are white security bars on the windows and front door in the long shot and also later in the news footage, but when they're at her house none of those bars exist and the shrubbery also differs.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Charlie Epps is writing a quadrillion on the whiteboard, the writing alternates between shots. Most noticably when he first writes it down, there is a significant downward tendency of the 000 groups. In the next shot, they are pretty much horizontal. Also the shapes of the commas alter.Ronnie Bischof
Dr. Larry Fleinhardt: You know that it's considered unsolvable?
Charlie Eppes: Well, certainly people who have failed to solve it might think that.
Trivia: Season 4 - Episode 4 "Thirteen"; The episode revolves around a man killing people with the same first names as the thirteen apostles (Mary Magdalene being the 13th), and killing them in a similar fashion in which the apostles died. At one point, Colby and David find a box with a mannequin's head in it. This is a reference to the film Se7en, in which seven people are killed for committing one of the seven deadly sins. The film ends with the main characters finding an actual head in a box.
