Continuity mistake: During the scene when Booth and Bones are driving to tell Angela that her boyfriend is dead, the scenery behind Booth jumps suddenly mid shot. Initially the scene is of a wide plain, then suddenly a mountain range appears. This scene was obviously shot on a sound stage, with the scenic background being projected onto screens around the vehicle, an old trick in movie making. It seems that somebody mistimed the loop of the tape they were using.
Continuity mistake: When Bones goes to open the vent on the wall in the mortuary while standing on the coffin, the shot from inside the grate shows her taking a step up and being exactly at head height for it. Only problem is that in the shot previous to this she was significantly short of the grate, and there was nothing on the coffin lid for her to step up onto.

Continuity mistake: When Angela asks to see the girl's drawing, in the shot from the girl's perspective as she hands the pad over, the painting's quite small in the centre of the page. When it then cuts to Angela's point of view it takes up nearly the whole page.

Continuity mistake: At 20:13 into the episode, a bunch of victims are shown on the computer screen. If you read their info, several are from Arlington, Virginia. Booth has been trying to find victims from out of state, but says nothing when these come up on the screen. Shortly after this is shown, Hodgins tells him about a victim in Lynchberg, Virginia. He then takes action as the victim is from out of state. He should've noticed the others.
Continuity mistake: When Booth and Brennan are speaking with the widow explaining that her husband was murdered. Brennan has her arms folded across her chest, when the shot changes and you see her in the mirror her arms are hanging down at her sides, then when it changes back her arms are folded again.
Continuity mistake: The lawyer gives Booth the file on Howard Epps and he opens it with a picture on the left hand (screen right) side. Camera shows the file open and that photo is now on the right under a bulldog clip there fore making it impossible the photo fell and swapped sides when opened. The picture also rotates.
Continuity mistake: At the end after shooting Farheed, we see Booth with both hands on the railing. Camera shows a secret service operative opening the camera bag containing the bomb then cuts back to Booth who suddenly has his gun back in his hands and raised as if he had just fired.
Continuity mistake: When the director is looking at the 2 photos Booth hands him, there is a shot of the two photos one on top of the other neatly. Camera changes and they are no longer neatly on top of each other. The bottom one is sticking out and should have been visible in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: The assistant transplant coordinator tells Bones that another woman, Kelly DeMarco, had the same bone graft donor as Amy's. In the scene where they are analyzing the bone from Ms. DeMarco, Zach says she 'died of lung cancer 2 months ago.' Less than 10 seconds later, Booth says that she 'never smoked a cigarette in her whole life, only to die of lung cancer 8 months ago.'
Continuity mistake: Booth and Brennan arrive at the crime scene in the beginning of the show. After she has confirmed that the bones in the trunk belonged to a woman, a black car drives by and shots are fired. At first, the trunk of the car is less than halfway opened. Cut to the next shot and the trunk is fully opened.
