Forever Knight

The Code - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: In the flashback, the level of whiskey in the bottle changes from 1/3 empty to nearly full and back again as the shots alternate. (00:16:25)

Jean G

Curiouser & Curiouser - S2-E22

Revealing mistake: After Nick demands to be told what's going on, LaCroix leaves - but his reflection remains in the mirror for a few seconds after we hear the sound effect of his flying away. (00:28:45)

Jean G

Francesca - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: While the doctor is playing the tape for Reese, Nick and Tracy, the Toronto Leafs hockey team coffee cup on Reese's desk is sitting with the leaf logo turned away from the camera and the hockey player art showing. A few shots later, though Reese isn't drinking any coffee and hasn't touched it, the cup turns itself so the leaf logo is now visible. A little later, it's turned back again. (00:22:30)

Only the Lonely - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: Nick gets a phone call telling him another murder victim has been found and that she's been dead for at least a week. In the very next scene, Schanke says that the victim "disappeared after a date last night." (00:27:00)

Jean G

I Will Repay - S1-E10

Character mistake: Nick asks Janette if she's ever turned anyone else into a vampire - an odd question, considering the fact that he already knows she has. He was there when she brought the baroness across in the 18th Century flashback sequence for "If Looks Could Kill." It's even odder that Janette tells him she's never done it, since she knows that Nick knows she has. Apparently, the only one not in the know here was the scriptwriter.

Jean G

Cherry Blossoms - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Nick breaks into the old Chinese herbalist's warehouse, he twists and breaks a doorknob lock. But when he walks through to the inside, there's a latch-and-bar array instead of a knob. It's a completely different door.

Jean G

Dead of Night - S3-E14

Factual error: In the flashback to Nick's wedding night, his medieval tunic/shirt has 20th Century white plastic 4-hole buttons sewn to the cuffs. (00:29:25)

Jean G

Night in Question - S3-E10

Visible crew/equipment: While Natalie is stocking Nick's kitchen with groceries, a shiny pot on the shelf over the stove captures a reflection of several crew members standing on the other side of the set. (00:24:55)

Jean G

Ashes to Ashes - S3-E21

Revealing mistake: When LaCroix opens the box containing Divia's little "surprise," the severed head's eyes move slightly as the covering tissue paper is removed. (00:07:20)

Jean G

The Games Vampires Play - S3-E15

Factual error: At the end, Nick recites the "you have the right to remain silent" spiel to Rita as he arrests her. Suspects in Canada, where this show is set, are not "read their rights." That's a U.S. law (the Miranda Act) and it isn't observed north of the border. (00:41:45)

Jean G

The Human Factor - S3-E16

Revealing mistake: When Robert is shot, the car blowing up in the alley is sort of half an explosion, abruptly curtailed. Severely cold weather during shooting literally froze the cameras and left only a few seconds of usable footage. That snippet is repeated for effect, but the explosion still looks "cut off" because it is. (00:32:00)

Jean G

Close Call - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: In the establishing shot of the epilogue, it's 9:10 on the clock outside the station. But in the very next shot, it's 7:10 on the clock inside. (00:42:20)

Jean G

Baby Baby - S2-E24

Revealing mistake: At the episode's end, the sharp, moving background of nighttime Toronto from the top of the CN Tower suddenly shifts to a still, blurry (and glaringly obvious) matte image. The scene was partly shot atop the actual tower, but because high winds and sway made the location too dangerous, it was abandoned, and the bulk of the scene had to be shot in studio and processed. (00:37:15)

Jean G

Near Death - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: The flashbacks here recount Nick's "bringing across." But for the second time in the series, the recap of this event contradicts the original pilot film version in that the characters have all changed costumes. (00:25:10)

Jean G

Near Death - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: While Nick is interviewing Dr. Linsman, the position of his hands shifts (from lying flat on the desk to held up near his face) every time the camera angle changes. (00:08:15)

Jean G

Can't Run, Can't Hide - S2-E10

Plot hole: In the underground bunker, Nick demands to know why the vampires in Vietnam are feeding on the children "when there are so many dead up there". Yet later in this same episode (as well as at other times in the series), it's stated that "Forever Knight's" vampires can't drink from the dead. (00:20:35 - 00:27:40)

Jean G

Bad Blood - S2-E9

Factual error: At the very end, Bridget Hellman is buried with a fully-engraved headstone in one just one day's time (which happens only in tv & movies: the process takes months in real life... er, death). She also spontaneously returns as a vampire without being "brought across," a violation of series canon, and she comes back mysteriously sporting 3 times more hair than she had as a mortal. (00:43:10)

Jean G

Killer Instinct - S2-E1

Factual error: The cop who arrests Nick reads him his Miranda rights ("You have the right to remain silent," etc.) But "Forever Knight" is set in Toronto. At last report, Toronto rather resolutely insists upon remaining in the sovereign nation of Canada, where the Miranda Act, a U.S. Federal law, is not observed. (00:14:40)

Jean G

Love You to Death - S1-E23

Factual error: The supposed ballerina in this episode's flashback to 19th century France is not employing any real ballet steps or arm movements. All she's doing on stage is standing still and waving her arms in the air, performing something that looks rather more like semaphore than ballet. (00:10:10)

Jean G

Fatal Mistake - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: The wooden plank with which Alexandra impales Nick completely changes angles (from flat side tilted left to flat side tilted right) between the time it strikes him and the time he pulls it out. It also appears to "grow" an inch or so wider than it was before. (00:39:00 - 00:40:25)

Jean G

Janette: Poor Nicholas... tortured by a soul he hasn't got.

Curiouser & Curiouser - S2-E22

Trivia: All the sets in the dream sequence, particularly Nick's loft, are filled with props referencing Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland books. They include white rabbits, flamingos, walruses, a squeaky-toy caterpillar - even a half-eaten piece of cake in Nick's fridge. The episode also has several background extras in Wonderland-style costumes, and numerous other references to the books, such as Nick literally falling through the looking glass at the end.
