Forward into the Past - S2-E4

Factual error: Nick tells fellow vampire Aristotle, "You still owe me for that time at the Battle of Hastings." Nick was brought across in 1228, or so the intro told us every week. The Battle of Hastings, as any British school kid knows, was fought in 1066, over 100 years before Nick's mortal birth.

Partners of the Month - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: While he's talking to Janette at the Raven, the level of fluid in Schanke's cocktail changes all by itself from several inches down to nearly full again, even though he's been sipping at it throughout their conversation.

00:34:55

Jean G

Crazy Love - S2-E26

Factual error: Dr. Shawna Welsh's medical degree, visible on the office wall behind her while she talks to Nick, misspells the name of Johns Hopkins Medical College as "John Hopkins."

00:08:35

Jean G

Killer Instinct - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: The re-use of a brief scene from the pilot episode, inserted during Nick and LaCroix's vampire battle in the warehouse, creates the unfortunate problem of Nick completely changing clothes in the middle of the fight.

00:37:35

Partners of the Month - S2-E18

Revealing mistake: When Schanke, in a huff, packs up his treasures and moves out of Nick's loft, he kicks the box of his belongings into the freight elevator, then gets in and closes the door. If you watch closely, you can see the cord of his duck lamp caught under the door, where it stays even after the elevator supposedly begins its descent.

Amateur Night - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: It's 9:10 a.m. outside the police precinct station, and after a 4-minute interview scene with no time lapses, it's 2:55 p.m. inside.

00:21:50 - 00:25:10

Jean G

A More Permanent Hell - S2-E20

Factual error: In the first scene, Dr. Dana says the asteroid heading for Earth is 5 miles wide, "larger than the one that caused the dinosaur extinction." The asteroid that did in the dinos is estimated by most scientists to have been 6-8 miles wide.

00:03:00

Jean G

Undue Process - S2-E8

Factual error: Nat's god-daughter Cynthia Luce is buried within a few days of her murder with an elaborate headstone already in place. (In reality, headstones take months to produce.) But the wrong name is carved on the stone. It reads "In memory of Cynthia Lambert."

00:43:30

Jean G

Hunted - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: It wasn't supposed to be in shot, but the camera accidentally caught the stuffed caterpillar toy perched on Nat's desk in the coroner's lab. It was there because nursing mom Catherine Disher had her new baby nearby on set. Fans wondered, though, why the single, childless Nat would keep baby toys in the morgue.

00:17:20

Beyond the Law - S2-E13

Plot hole: At the end, Nick and Schanke discuss the bruise Nick's blow supposedly left on Damir's jaw. But Nick didn't hit Damir. He grabbed and tossed him bodily into a trash heap in the alley - without ever once touching his jaw.

00:41:50

The Fix - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: Although they never reverse their direction, when Nick and Schanke are walking down the Toronto city street, they pass the same bright yellow discount store sign twice.

Be My Valentine - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: In the flashback to 1228, Nick's just-awakened sister Fleur has her hair down over her ears, and is wearing a white night dress that covers her to the neck. Cut to a close-up and her hair is pulled back to reveal pierced earrings (unlikely in 1228, and did she sleep with them on?), and she's suddenly in a bare-shouldered gown instead of her night dress.

00:08:35

Queen of Harps - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: Nick and Schanke are interrogating a murder suspect and disagreeing about whether or not she did the deed. They leave the interview room together, and Nick's hair completely changes styles as he walks out of the room. On the inside of the door, it's combed down over his forehead and rather "fluffy." The minute he exits on the other side of the door, it's brushed back and slicked down.

00:25:55

Jean G

A More Permanent Hell - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: Mt. Vesuvius is erupting and LaCroix's villa is collapsing around him. But while the ground "shakes," statuary falls over and the walls cave in, look closely at the fountain/pool in the center of the room. There's not a drop splashing out of it. In fact, the water's surface is smooth as glass.

Blood Money - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: When Sean sneaks back into the night club owner's office, we can see as he enters that there is no one in the left-hand side of the room. Yet, as Sean sits down at the desk, Walken somehow emerges from the left corner, which we have just seen was empty a moment before.

00:39:15

Jean G

Blood Money - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: When Nick and Schanke begin interrogating Sean, the tape recorder on the desk isn't running. It's going a few shots later, though, even though no one's touched it to turn it on.

00:30:30

Jean G

Father's Day - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: During his fight with Constantine's henchmen, the bullet holes in the back of Nick's vest disappear and reappear several times between shots.

00:23:30

Jean G

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

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

Near Death - S2-E23

Plot hole: Dr. Linsman puts a heart monitor on Nick for the experiment, but for some bizarre reason, never questions why her "patient" has a resting heart rate of only one beat every ten minutes.

Jean G

Close Call - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: Though the camera angle doesn't change, the brightly lit Chinese-character sign on the wall outside the window moves several feet to the right between takes.

00:09:10

Jean G

Crazy Love - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: The flashbacks here contradict series canon. Nick's victim, Amaya, is shown to have been bitten (by him) several times. In every other instance, unless he had multiple captive ladies to "sip" from, Nick's bite was fatal in one go. In fact, it was a major recurring plot point that Nick "couldn't stop."

Partners of the Month - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: Schanke's mother-in-law had previously been established as dead, yet Schanke's talking to her on the phone in this episode.

00:16:25

Jean G

Father's Day - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: The godfather's thugs storm Nick's loft and riddle him with bullets. We actually see the bullets coming out of his back, leaving holes in the back of the vest he wears. But when the "vamped out" Nick turns around to face the camera, there are no bullet holes in the front of his vest.
