Continuity mistake: Before the Roadhouse fire, Ash and Dean are talking on the phone. Ash looks at his watch, on his left hand, it says 8:10, and has a black dial/face. As Dean and Bobby go through the rubble, Dean identifies Ash by his watch. Still on his left hand, it is now upside down, evident by the crown of the watch (used to move the hands of the watch) which previously facing his hand, is now facing his elbow. Also, the dial/face of the watch is now silver instead of black. This is a different watch, and was inadvertently put on the burnt arm upside down.
Continuity mistake: When Dean reads about the Roosevelt Asylum in his dad's journal, there is a picture of a Wendigo on the opposite page of the newspaper clipping but in a different scene, Dean checks the article again for information on the South Wing in the Asylum but this time on the opposite page of the newspaper clipping, there is no picture.
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode when Dean is being chased by the possessed truck, Sam tells him to take a left. After he's made the left, Sam tells him to go exactly 7/10ths of a mile and stop. Dean looks at his gage and it reads 70098.3. Dean looks up, then back at it: it changes to 70098.5, but the next time he looks down it says 70100.6 and when he stops it says 70101.0, meaning he's gone 2 miles too far. (Probably meaning it took two shots to get the scene right but they messed up on the gage.)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dean is with Bobby at the burned down Roadhouse and Dean gets Andy's vision about where Sam is, the first time Dean scrunches his face in pain he puts his left hand to his head. The shot changes to a back view and you can tell his left hand is still at his head. But when the shot switches again Dean is bringing his right hand down from his head.
Continuity mistake: When Sam and Dean enter the Shoemaker home, a woman leaning against a wall holding a coffee cup starts to follow them down the hall. When the shot changes, the woman is back against the wall, talking to someone who wasn't there in the previous shot.
Plot hole: When Sam and Dean realise they need to destroy the hook to stop the hook man, they find out that it has been reforged into something else. They state it needs to be set on fire to stop him, but if it was melted down and reforged then it has already been set on fire and the hook man shouldn't be latched on to it in the first place.
Continuity mistake: The baby gets into the fridge, which then closes - we see a closeup shot of the babyproofing clip shutting itself. Then when the mother sees the spilled milk and realises what's happened, there are a few shots of the fridge - in shots from the front the clip's open, and in shots from the side it's closed. When she goes to open the fridge it's open again - she even fiddles with it to give the appearance of undoing it before opening the fridge door.

Revealing mistake: Sam takes the SIM card out of his phone so it can't be tracked, but when he takes the back off his phone, there's no battery, and the SIM card is just lying in the back not attached to anything! Same for Dean's - he takes the back off and the card just falls right out, not secured in any way as it would be in a real phone.

Visible crew/equipment: When Sam tells the little girl to take her brother outside. The little girl runs out with her brother and Dean asks the little girl where Sam is, Dean runs to the Impala and grabs a shotgun. When Dean is running to the house, he runs on the lawn and you can see the shadow of the camera man running with Dean at the bottom of the screen.
Continuity mistake: Gary (disguised as Sam) sits at the bar and orders a banana daiquiri. The woman next to him tries to engage him in a conversation as he sips his drink, and each time the camera switches between him and the woman, the level of his drink changes noticeably up and down.
Continuity mistake: When Dean kisses the Crossroads Demon, his head is tilted left, but when it cuts to the next shot his head is tilted to the right. It switches back and forth in the next two shots too quickly for Dean or the demon to move their heads.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Sam is tied up and eventually fights the fake-Dean in Becka's house, there is a shot that shows both his feet and hands tied. During the fight, both his hands and feet are shown free, but he only cut free his hands, and began fighting immediately after that.

Factual error: At the beginning of the episode it is stated that we are in the month of April - yet in the orchard there are ladders, fallen apples and baskets filled with fresh fruit everywhere, as if it were harvest time. The god is declared to grant fertility and not climate change, so the harvest decoration seems definitely out of season.
Factual error: When Sam and Dean show up at the crime scene to investigate, they are stopped by a woman wearing digital Army ACU's. She introduces herself as Sergeant Miranda Bates, even though she has rank insignia on her cover and her chest that identifies her as a PFC (private first class).
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the passengers board the plane at the beginning, the aircraft is a Boeing 737, noticeable by the crew jumpseats located by the entrance door. But the first scene you see where the aircraft is in flight, the aircraft changes to a Widebody Airbus, possibly an A310, noticeable by the different style of winglets that Airbus uses compared to that of Boeing.
Continuity mistake: When the Deputy handcuffs Dean to the car door handle, he uses a small radio/cell antenna from the car to pick his handcuff lock (attached to his wrist), just as the bad guys walk toward the car. When the bad guys get to the car Dean is gone and so are the handcuffs (including the cuff that was attached to the door handle). Dean did not have time to pick both handcuff locks.

Continuity mistake: Season 6 Episode 15 'The French Mistake': When Sam and Dean are first talking to Misha, the collar of his shirt is tucked into his jacket, as normal. However it suddenly is sticking out over the top of his coat, then changes to being tucked in again, with no time for him to have changed it himself.
Plot hole: In episodes where Sam and Dean are required to perform spells/rituals at certain times, the issue not quite seen is that not all clocks are exactly in sync with each other, meaning that the clock they are using could be off by a few minutes especially if dealing with different time zones or time periods. (S07E12, Time After Time).
Factual error: When the doctor says that the dead man has a high lymphocyte percentage indicating a viral infection after she looks down the microscope: 1) What they show in the microscope looks nothing like what is actually visible down a light microscope (especially the supposed lymphocytes) and 2) Even if she could see what they showed, it wouldn't actually indicate that the infection was viral.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jill is looking at her 'Bloody Mary' reflection, the lines of blood coming from her eyes go down and straight over her mouth (because she hasn't smeared them like the real Jill has). But as she begins to talk, the lines switch from being over her mouth to off to either side of her mouth and back multiple times.
Other mistake: In the scene where Sam, Dean and Sarah go to compare the painting to the earlier photo of it, Dean, noticing the changed position of the razor, says, "Jared, check it out." He is speaking to the character Sam. The actor's name is Jared. [Confirmed in cast interviews].
Continuity mistake: When the girl is taking a bath, the water is so full that its almost overflowing. She gets into the tub and the water doesn't overflow. The faucet is still running and yet the water keeps changing from full to down below her shoulders.
Audio problem: In 6.14 "Mannequins 3: The Reckoning", when Dean goes up to talk to Ben, Ben is playing a video game. Dean says something along the lines of "There's no way plants could kill zombies", therefore pointing out that Ben is playing Plants vs. Zombies, but the sounds coming from Ben's gaming system are not from Plants vs. Zombies.
Other mistake: Dean is tied to a chair when Sam rescues him. His hands are tied to the arms of the chair with rope. Sam comes over and just casually loosens the rope and it comes right off, then Dean just simply flings the rope off the other hand like they weren't even tied up, Yet before Sam got there, Dean was struggling to get loose.
Continuity mistake: Elliot Ness and Dean are in his car waiting for the god of time. Elliot takes out his flask, takes a drink, offers some to Dean. Dean declines and Elliot puts the flask back in his pocket. The next shot Elliot is taking a drink again without pulling it back out of his pocket.
Audio problem: Dean is in the cemetery talking to his father's grave, trying to figure out what's happening to him. In a continuous shot, right after Dean says "like it doesn't want me to be happy", you hear him say, "of course I know what you'd say" but his mouth doesn't move at all.
Factual error: The man gets hit hard enough by the bus to knock his shoe clear off, yet when we see his body about to be covered up, there's only a small amount of blood on his mouth. If you get hit by a bus hard enough to make your shoe fly off, then there should have been more damage.
