The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: Mr. Braine screams as his steam-powered chair crashes into the bandstand. If you look closely at the next shot, just before the explosion, you can see that the dummy now in the chair is already missing its head.

The Night of the Man-Eating House - S2-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When the old man gets up from his chair and moves toward the door, the camera shadow is moving on the wall behind him.

The Night of the Returning Dead - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: In the barn, when Artemus jokes about "smoked ham," he and West are standing within inches of each other. Then the shot cuts to a wider angle, at which point they're several feet apart.

The Night of the Eccentrics - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: Behind West, when he's suspended over the electrical field, you can see the shadow of the boom mike and rigging pole moving on the wall.

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: West and Gordon are ordered to sit on the floor to talk to the diminutive Dr. Loveless at eye level. In all the two-shots, their shoulders are touching. In all the wider angles, they're sitting a foot apart.

The Night of the Returning Dead - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: It's just past nightfall when the townspeople enter the courthouse. They aren't there more than half an hour, yet it's daylight when they emerge. Then a shot from inside shows that it's night again.

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.

The Night of the Man-Eating House - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: West tosses a small grenade at the French doors. We see it hit and explode without breaking a single pane or crosspiece. It just makes smoke and blackens the surface. After a shot of West and Gordon, we cut back to the door and it's now a broken ruin with no glass and the wood framing destroyed. Delayed action bomb?

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: Dr. Loveless' henchmen remove Artemus' leg chain. But a few scenes later, he's shown asleep in a chair, and the chain is back around his ankle.

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When the marshal opens the train's rear door and comes in to arrest Lana, you can see wrinkles in the "sky" outside. It's really a painted cloth backdrop.

The Night of the Vicious Valentine - S2-E20

Factual error: Artemus opens a cabinet to reveal a map of the United States where he and West are keeping track of the alphabetical murders. The map is far out of date for the Grant administration, with what became the state of West Virginia during the Civil War still part of Virginia, and missing entirely the states of Nevada, Oregon, Kansas, Nebraska, and Minnesota-all of which were part of the union before President Grant took office.

The Night of the Wolf - S2-E27

Factual error: Several airplane contrails are visible in the sky as West gallops his horse to Stefan's coronation.
