Welcome to Santa Rosa County - S6-E10

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny begin their ascent, the injured rock climbers are shown in a closeup, which then zooms out so we can see the entire area to the left, and the only rope up there is the boys' red rope. When Johnny reaches the boys, he's pulling himself up with the help of a blue rope, which has already been anchored in place near the injured boys. So who put it up there and anchored it? Not the injured boys. Not Johnny. Not Roy, who is still down below.

Gossip - S4-E3

Factual error: Roy uses the defibrillator paddles on the electrocuted man twice, then after each defib Roy lifts the paddles off the patient's chest and they look at the EKG monitor, which shows flatlining the first time and a heartbeat the second time. Problem is, it's impossible for the EKG monitor to show anything at all. Either the defib paddles must be in contact with patient's body for the “quick-look” to determine the rhythm, which they were not, or the ECG electrode discs must be on his chest connecting him to the EKG monitor, and they were not.
