Forever Knight

If Looks Could Kill - S1-E20

Plot hole: At the Precinct after the second spa incident, Captain Stonetree refers to "two unexplained reflex murders in one night." But the first victim survived the attack - so there was only one murder, not two. A little worse than a simple character mistake, since he's the police captain and knows the case. Schanke gets it right later, when he says, "One murder and one attempted murder." (00:14:20)

If Looks Could Kill - S1-E20

Plot hole: In the morgue, Nick tells Nat that vampires disappear when they die. Not so in this series. "Forever Knight's" vampires, defying old movie clich├ęs, remained stubbornly intact when staked, making Nick's statement here a glaring contradiction of canon. (00:16:05)

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)

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.

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.

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)

Fatal Mistake - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: The tow truck and the red van it's towing change positions at the alley's entrance between shots. (00:01:00 - 00:23:35)

If Looks Could Kill - S1-E20

Other mistake: Nick pronounces the plastic surgeon's name as "Yergen" in one scene and as "Jergen" in the next. At the end, she becomes Dr. "Yergen" again. (00:29:40 - 00:31:10)

If Looks Could Kill - S1-E20

Factual error: Nick's '62 Cadillac had an attached police radio, but never had a car phone, nor the giant external antenna attachment they required in the early 90s. Yet Schanke somehow makes a call from Nick's "car phone" in this episode.

Lucien LaCroix: You don't look well, Don Constantine. Time's a bitch, isn't it?

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.
