A Thing About Machines - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When the car is approaching the pool to push the man into the water, the tires tracks are visible in the grass, showing that the car had already made that trip. Either tracks from an earlier take, or the scene was filmed and then played in reverse, to be safe for the actor.
