The Jinn Who Clears The Way - S5-E5

Factual error: Danno, who's been a cop long enough to know better, reports to McGarrett that the lab has determined Wong's blood type to be AO. Blood is typed as A, B, AB or O. There is no type AO.

Here Today, Gone Tonight - S5-E17

Continuity mistake: Danno boards the helicopter without his briefcase, but arrives to conduct the interview carrying the case and tape recorder. He takes the copter back home again with nothing in hand, getting into his car empty handed as well. But he enters McGarrett's office carrying the briefcase again.

Death is a Company Policy - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: The Five-O computer here lists McGarrett's name as Steven J. McGarrett. But in "A Gun For McGarrett," his middle name is revealed to be Aloysius. Strange that the computer doesn't know the name of its own department's head.

Little Girl Blue - S5-E20

Revealing mistake: During the bunker siege, footage recycled from an earlier episode creates the sudden appearance of a white station wagon parked beside the police cruisers that isn't there in all the other shots.

The Clock Struck Twelve - S5-E12

Character mistake: After distracting the guards, Danno tosses a grappling hook onto a ledge and climbs the side of the building. He then goes about his business, carelessly leaving the hook and rope dangling from the ledge for all to see. For a seasoned 5-0 team member, that's pretty sloppy covert operations.

Little Girl Blue - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: After murdering the cop, Frank and Luther steal a rifle from the squad car, then close the door. No one goes near the car again, but a few minutes later, the door has re-opened itself.

'V' For Vashon: The Patriarch (3) - S5-E11

Character mistake: When Ben talks to the old guy about Spider Brown, Ben says, "Somebody that got rich the past week." The time between the shooting and trial was probably months, not just one week. Spider would have been flashing money right after the hit, and then disappeared.

'V' For Vashon: The Father (2) - S5-E10

Character mistake: Chin and McGarrett call the bomber Marcos, but his name on the social security card says Macros and Vashon calls him Macros.

The Clock Struck Twelve - S5-E12

Plot hole: As a security test, McGarrett secretly has several dummy bombs planted in the court building, then later shows the governor where they are. Each time he pulls one of the devices from its hiding place, citizens in the courthouse stroll casually by without so much as glancing at the loudly-ticking "bomb." No one knew about the test, so McGarrett's bombs should be attracting some attention, if not causing outright panic.

'V' For Vashon: The Father (2) - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: From his office on the second floor, McGarrett looks out at the office building across the plaza. But the POV shot that follows is taken from ground level.

'V' For Vashon: The Father (2) - S5-E10

Character mistake: Hayward tells Vashon that McGarrett's office is on the third floor of the Iolani Palace. Previous episodes have placed the office on the second floor, or have shown the palace to have only two floors.

Journey out of Limbo - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When the police cruiser with Danno aboard leaves HPD HQ, it's a 1967 Ford Galaxy 500 with wind wings. But in the next shot of it on the Honolulu streets, the car is a '71 or '72 model with no wind wings.

Fools Die Twice - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: A loud, fierce gun battle rages between dozens of 5-0 sharpshooters, Army MPs and the desperadoes inside the payroll office. Amidst all the high-powered rifle fire, a woman in a blue dress strolls casually by in the background, well within bullet range, and never even turns her head to see what all the ruckus is about. Gee, you'd think colossal shooting wars broke out on her block every day.

You Don't Have To Kill To Get Rich -- But It Helps. - S5-E3

Revealing mistake: We see the body of Karen Bell 30 fathoms underwater, with her feet tied to a concrete block. But just before the shot cuts, the "corpse" wiggles its toes.

Death Wish on Tantalus Mountain - S5-E2

Character mistake: McGarrett tells Pereno that the sabotaged race car went over a cliff. But the car crashed into a wall, with no cliff in sight. It's very unlike Hawaii's top cop to get the facts wrong - especially when he was an eye witness to the event.

Death Wish on Tantalus Mountain - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: On top of the mountain, miles from any artificial light source, several studio lights and reflector panels are visible in the side of McGarrett's shiny black Mercury.
