Visible crew/equipment: In the 1795 flashback, as Barnabas confronts Angelique beside his coffin, a crew member in a short-sleeved blue shirt is sitting to the right, and can be seen hastily getting up and moving out of the shot.

Show generally

Audio problem: 1897: Quentin challenges Barnabas by pulling a decorative sword from a wall display and pointing it at his throat. Unfortunately, the display wasn't all that well attached to the set wall. Though the camera pans away, you can hear a loud clunk as the piece falls, followed by the loud crash of shattering glass as it strikes and breaks a table lamp. You can also see the actors struggling very hard to keep straight faces as they continue with their lines.
