Otis - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: At the end, Michael wraps a white handkerchief around Lincoln's wound. In the penultimate shot of the episode we get a closeup of the wound and the handkerchief is no longer around it. (00:40:10)

Ogygia - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: On the tombstone in the previous episode, Michael's date of death is 11.4.2005. But in this episode, when Linc goes to the graveyard to visit Michael's grave, his date of death is 11.4.2010. It is also a different grave from the original, as the original was in South America beside the beach, and here we are led to believe it is in New York. (00:50:50)

And Then There Were 7 - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Quinn falls in the well, he falls through and subsequently destroys the well cover. At the end of the episode when the Secret Service boys show up, an undamaged cover is lying next to the well, which Kellerman uses to cover it up. (00:29:30 - 00:38:30)

Killing Your Number - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: Sucre and C-Note came to Michael's help with dealing with the general. Sucre has noticeably longer hair than normal. In the next clip his hair is gone. (00:20:00 - 00:21:00)

Season 1 generally

Factual error: When Michael fills the tank with water (below the stock room), he then strips his clothes off, and slides down a pipe and into the water at the bottom of the tank. Since the water level was way above him, the pipe he slid down and the access to get there would have been flooded also. There was no water in the pipe he slid down, so for that area to be dry, it would have to be above the water line.

Going Under - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: Michael is discussing a bargain with Sara but when he first draws it out it's in squares, then when the clipboard is lying flat on his stomach the letters are circled.

End of the Tunnel - S1-E13

Other mistake: When Michael climbs up the rope to get to the room below the infirmary, the rope is hanging from the manhole cover, but he still manages to lift the cover whilst hanging from it. In the next shot where he looks down the manhole, its clear that there is nothing other than the rope he could have held on to while lifting the cover. An impressive accomplishment, defying the laws of gravity. (00:38:00)

Suggested correction: I disagree, in the earlier episode where Michael actually climbs out of the water and attaches the rope, when climbing up through the manhole cover he uses a lip to support himself first.

Yes but the point of the mistake is that Michael is solely hanging from a rope that is attached to the man hole cover. While his weight is on the rope, he managed to lift the manhole cover. The lip mentioned is created when the cover is lifted.

The water at the correct level helps him to swim up and push the metal attached to the rope.

Under & Out - S3-E11

Plot hole: Gretchen, Lincoln, and Sophia were able to visit Scofield and Whistler in Sona without Gretchen being recognized. She was taken in for questioning in episode 9, but she managed to escape and kill General Zavala and one other guard. The other guards knew that she was the one who killed Zavala but she was still able to sign in for visitation.

Fire/Water - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Scofield has water poured in to his glass the water level isn't even a quarter full, however, when it cuts back the glass is half full. (00:02:00)

Mortug

Disconnect - S2-E12

Plot hole: The Kansas police arrest Bellick for, and he is subsequently convicted of, Geary's murder based in part on a threatening voice mail he left on Geary's phone. But The Message's time and date would match the records of Bellick's admittance into the hospital, thus proving him innocent of the crime.

Suggested correction: Not necessarily, The Kansas police would have to do an autopsy to determine cause of death and time of death. T-bag had killed Geary long before Bellick left the voice mail as shortly after, Roy's body arrives at the hospital. So the prosecutor could easily say the voicemail was left after Roy died to try and cover his (Bellick's) tracks.

No the paramedics said he died on the ride over.

Bang and Burn - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the shot where Scofield and Whistler are clinging to the wire from the helicopter, one of the bad guys gets shot and falls out of the helicopter. He falls past the wire, but they're not hanging off it. (00:38:35)

Greatness Achieved - S4-E9

Question: How does Don Self know that Miriam should work at Gate when nobody knew about the location of Scylla? Or Whistler wanting to work there?

Answer: Don Self actually worked with Whistler before he died. And Whistler with the bird book actually knew where Scylla was.

Answer: Because Miriam was an agent.

But that still doesn't make sense because nobody knew where Scylla was.
