The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: West's sword fight ends when his opponent falls through a window after dropping his weapon. In the next shot, the dropped blade has moved several feet to the center of the floor, and West's sword has vanished altogether. (00:30:00)

The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Factual error: The bizarre centerpiece on the murderers' banquet table has colored electric light bulbs showing in the skulls' eye sockets. (00:26:50)

The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Factual error: This episode suggests that the presidential order of succession is Vice-President, Secretary of State, then President Pro-Tem of the Senate. It's actually the Vice-President, then Speaker of the House, then President Pro-Tem of the Senate.

The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Character mistake: There are seven mourners dressed in black surrounding Gordon's casket - three on each side and one by the funeral officiator (who is the disguised Gordon). Later in the scene when West is talking to the disguised Gordon, Gordon says, "How do you like that - six mourners..." (00:05:20 - 00:07:10)

The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Factual error: Fenlow begins shouting about "one nation, under God, indivisible." This series is set in the 1870s. The Pledge of Allegiance, from which these lines are taken, wasn't written until 1892. And the words "under God" weren't added until 1954. (00:46:55)

Continuity mistake: West crashes through the French doors, breaking out the center section and leaving a partial framework on either side. In the next several shots, the center support and one broken frame reappear and disappear repeatedly. (00:02:30)
