Escape Clause - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Walter crumples the prescription slip and tosses it onto the bed - but in the next shot, it has disappeared. (00:05:15)

Escape Clause - S1-E6

Plot hole: If Walter was indeed immortal from his deal with the devil then there was no reason for him to use the escape clause when he was sent to jail. Since he can't be killed by any means and nobody can harm him there would have been nothing to stop him from escaping the prison the moment his cell was opened.

Escape Clause - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Cadwallader puts a seal on the Escape Clause paper, he presses so hard that he manages to lift the whole document with seal. You can see that there is absolutely nothing except for a seal mark on the paper, yet when he drops the paper to the floor some typed text appears on it. Also in the same scene, the seal pattern is square in the first shot, but when the paper drops to the floor the seal mark is round.

Escape Clause - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When the main character proclaims, ".the new Walter Bedeker!" you can see the frames are running back and forth. You can tell by looking at the window curtains behind him.
