Revealing mistake: When Leland Palmer is locked in the cell he starts screaming and runs headlong into one wall, then the other. The first wall wobbles noticeably on impact, indicating it is being shot on a set.


Episode Sixteen - S2-E9

Plot hole: In the bait and switch section, why does anyone involved agree to Leland being Ben's attorney when both victims are relatives of Leland? Neither Ben nor any of the police are in on Cooper's plan, and it seems implausible at best that they would agree to this.


Episode Sixteen - S2-E9

Character mistake: At the Roadhouse Cooper states that the second victim (Maddy) was found dead two days ago. It has been less than 24 hours since the body was found: he likely means she was murdered two days ago.


Episode Eight (2) - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: At One Eyed Jack's, when Agent Cooper and Jacques are sitting and talking there are 2 glasses of beer on the table. In one shot Jacques finishes a glass. When he gets up, both glasses are full. (00:10:20 - 00:11:40)

Episode Sixteen - S2-E9

Plot hole: Harry states that Ben was not arrested until after midnight. However in episode 2.7, the arrest takes place earlier in the evening, shown in establishing shots and the other events which occur afterwards.


Episode Eighteen - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Nadine decides to lift leg weights beside Mike. She sets it to 600 pounds. However, whenever it changes view to her lifting from the angle of Mike, whenever the coach asks her to join the team, you can see that Nadine is not lifting any weights. (00:19:45)

Episode Fifteen - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: After Leland is pulled over by the police, he goes to open the boot of his car, and he is wearing dark gloves. When he rummages in his golf bag containing the body for a golf club, he is wearing no gloves. Then he holds the club in the air to show Cooper and the gloves are back again.

Episode Twenty-Six - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Donna confronts her mother about Ben Horne, she is asked to pass the peas. Her mother fills her plate with peas.

Episode Twenty - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When James and the blond women decide to have a cup of Champagne together, James put the bottle down on the seat and while they're discussing the bottle vanishes. (00:33:30 - 00:34:15)

Episode Eight (2) - S2-E1

Other mistake: When Cooper is on the floor after being shot, as he's signing the check, he is doing so with the pen closed, and proceeds to click it open as he hands it back to the room service.

Episode Fourteen - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Ben Horne's glasses are knocked off during his arrest at the Great Northern. No one picks them up, but when he is brought around the corner of his desk, he's wearing them again. (00:28:50 - 00:30:30)
