Dirty Harry - S4-E5

Do You Take Dexter Morgan? - S3-E12

Other mistake: The marriage certificate for Rita's first marriage shows her date of birth as 04-19-1989 and Dexter states she married at 16. The marriage date is 08-16-1989, when she would have been 4 months old. She also would only be 17 at the start of the series (2006) if she was born in 1989. (00:13:45)

Let's Give the Boy a Hand - S1-E4

Factual error: When Dexter and Doakes are looking at the severed foot wearing a soccer cleat, Dexter states, "The foot was severed between the tarsus and the metatarsus." However, the foot was severed proximal to the tarsus, through the tibia and fibula. The cut was easily too high to be between the tarsus and metatarsus. (00:16:45)

Blinded By the Light - S4-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When they are at the crime scene, you can plainly see the camera and camera man reflected in Special Agent Lundy's sunglasses several times. When it is a close up shot, it is even more obvious.

Father Knows Best - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Dexter goes to the morgue to see the body of his father. When he first sees the body, he bends down, and the clock behind him reads 4:11. A moment later when he stands back up the clock is at 4:17. A couple of minutes later the clock is at 4:01.

Are You...? - S7-E1

Continuity mistake: When Dexter started removing the plastic off Travis' body, his small knife was stabbed into the chest, but during that, the sword was already stabbed into the chest, not the knife, and then again, he removed the knife from the body, and then stabbed him with the sword. (00:12:05)

That Night, A Forest Grew - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Deb meets Lila, Lila is at the fridge and puts her arm over her breast - she isn't wearing the 'engagement' ring. However when she returns to Dexter's room it's on her finger.

Teenage Wasteland - S5-E9

Factual error: When Dexter is punching Olivia's father in his left side, he says "That's your liver." Only the liver is on the right side. For a serial killer who routinely dismembers bodies, Dexter should know which side the liver is on. (00:42:50)

Shrink Wrap - S1-E8

Factual error: In the police report Dexter examines, Emmett Meridian's name is followed by PhD, and yet he is referred to as a psychiatrist and prescribes medication. A psychiatrist would have an MD after his name, and a psychologist (PhD) cannot legally prescribe meds.

Suggested correction: It is possible for someone to be both a medical practitioner and have a PhD.

Someone with both a Doctor of Medicine and a Doctor of Philosophy would have both MD and PhD after their name. Not having an MD after your name means you can't prescribe medicine.

Yes, but in that case, both MD and PhD are listed after their name. Why would the report eliminate the MD, which is the more prestigious of the two degrees and certainly would have been noted during the investigation?

Father Knows Best - S1-E9

Factual error: When Dexter is in the hospital as a child, the doctor says that Dexter has a very rare blood type, AB negative. Although it's very rare, the people with AB- can receive donor blood with A-, B-, AB- and 0-. AB- is a very good blood-type when you need to receive blood. While it is true that hospitals normally have to use AB- because of the complexity of other proteins (and to prevent adverse reactions), in case of an emergency, like Dexter's, and a shortage, a hospital will use a blood type close enough to not likely cause a reaction. In this situation, the hospital would give Dexter O-, B-, or A- instead as blood loss would normally kill a patient long before a suitable donor could be located, called in, admitted to the hospital, and have the transfusion set up. (00:31:00 - 00:32:00)

Visible crew/equipment: When the wife of one of the victims invites Angel in, the silhouette of a camera man is reflected in the door when she closes it.

Helter Skelter - S7-E9

Factual error: In The Beginning while Dexter is on his boat in Miami, you suddenly see mountains in the background, of which there are none in Miami. Also the palms are too high, indicating they are from California. And the worst setting mistake is the Florida tags in front of the cars. Only commercial vehicles have front tags.

Chemistry - S7-E7

Isaak Sirko: You didn't kill Victor out of vengeance. I have a feeling you're a different kind of animal. The question is...what kind are you, Dexter Morgan?
Dexter: The kind who hunted your friend down and strapped him to a board and put a plastic bag on his head and crushed his skull with a fire extinguisher. The kind who's gonna do the same thing to you, give or take the fire extinguisher.

About Last Night - S3-E9

Question: Dexter tests the blood on Miguel's shirt, to see if it's Freebo's. It looks like he's just using a DNA sequencer and the blood result comes back "bovine." Can a DNA sequencer differentiate which species the blood came from like that? Or perhaps he was using a different type of blood analysis machine? Is there an analysis machine that's capable of that? I thought the way to test if blood is human or not, "anti-human serum" is mixed with the blood to see if it will clot. So wouldn't the only way to tell it was bovine blood is to inject it with "anti-bovine serum"?

Bishop73

Answer: The short answer is yes, it could. but, it would have to be set up to analyze results to differentiate species. The sequencer will report the base pairs for any properly prepared sample, but interpreting the results is a software package. The software is available, but I would think it unlikely that an analysis package used in a forensics lab would have the capability to be so specific. More likely it would report "Non Human Sequences Found."
