Continuity mistake: In flashback, we see the one-armed man kill Helen Kimble by striking her with a heavy lamp. All through the earlier seasons, though, we were repeatedly told that Helen had been strangled.

The Judgment (2) - S4-E29

Continuity mistake: Throughout the show's early episodes, Helen Kimble's dress on the night she was murdered was described as blue or blue-gray. Here, in the flashback to the murder, she's wearing an evening gown that isn't blue or gray, but pink.

The Last Oasis - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: During the race through the desert in Annie's Jeep, the rear-screen projection couldn't be more obvious. In the supposedly speeding vehicle, Annie's hair is blowing slightly, but Kimble's never moves at all.

The Breaking of the Habit - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Kimble was gimpy early in the episode, because he had been shot in the leg. During the episode he refuses any treatment. But near the end of the episode he is seen walking without a limp and in perfect health.

Dossier on a Diplomat - S4-E25

Continuity mistake: Kimble tells Hobart there's no new evidence that could get him another trial. But maybe Dr. Kimble is suffering from amnesia. In the past 3 1/2 seasons, he's uncovered no fewer than four potential witnesses who could provide new evidence in a second trial.

The Last Oasis - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: Within hours of being shot in the leg and having the bullet dug out without anesthetic (unless a slug of whiskey counts), Kimble is not even limping.

The Breaking of the Habit - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Kimble enters Sister Veronica's room, closes the door and walks toward her. Then the shot cuts to a closer angle, and he's closing the door over again.

Passage to Helena - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: Rafe and Kimble escape handcuffed together. They break the linking chain with a rock: each then wears a single bracelet. But when he kneels to examine the dead deputy, Kimble is wearing a cuff with an intact chain and an empty bracelet hanging from it.

A Clean and Quiet Town - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: The rear tires on Kimble's car get stuck in the sand and spin when he's trying to U-turn and avoid the roadblock. After the police order him to drive back to town with them, however, the car wheels somehow unstick themselves, and Kimble has no trouble at all driving out of the sand pit.

The Other Side of the Coin - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: When Sheriff Corby arrests Kimble outside the boarding house, the front door is open and the porch light is on. In the next shot, as they get in the car and drive away, the house door has closed itself and the porch light is off.

Second Sight - S4-E7

Plot hole: Kimble enters the bar in the midst of a fight between photographer Howie and a man he tried to blackmail. Kimble comes in too late to hear what the scuffle is about, yet after breaking it up, he somehow knows all about the incriminating photo that sparked it.

A Clean and Quiet Town - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: The one-armed man, whose name was earlier established to be Fred Johnson, is for some reason re-named Cramer in this episode's credits.

The Judgment (2) - S4-E29

Continuity mistake: The one-armed man orders Chandler to get up off the ground. In close-up, we see him sit up. But in the very next shot, he's flat on his back and sits up again.

The Judgment (2) - S4-E29

Revealing mistake: The last scenes of the grand finale/climax occur in an abandoned amusement park that's supposed to be in inland Indiana. But several shots with the Pacific Ocean "lurking" in the background (despite the cameraman's best efforts to hide or avoid it), as well as palm trees, and ocean sounds intruding on the soundtrack, reveal that the actual shooting location was in Southern California.

The Judgment (1) - S4-E28

Visible crew/equipment: When Kimble gets into the cab, the vehicle's shiny yellow side captures a reflection of the entire camera crew.
