Crocodile - S1-E2

Other mistake: When Dexter is running Matt Chambers' fingerprint though his computer, he brings up four newspaper articles where the names Matt Brewster and Matt Rasmussen are used. In the final article, the headline reads "Matt Rasmussen of South Boston arrested", but the body of the article uses the name Matt Brewster exclusively. Other than the first few words, the text of the final article is identical to that of the previous one. (00:33:50)

Dexter - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Dexter and the Lieutenant are talking after finding the head, she says "So Dexter, tell me. How'd you get so smart?" When she does, a lock of hair keeps appearing and disappearing from by her eye. (00:44:30)

Dexter - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Dexter is driving Joe to the graves at the start, just as they turn to the graves a crew light is reflected in the black paintwork of the car. There are no lights in the background for it to be anything else. (00:02:50)

Dexter - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: Sgt. Batista shows Dexter a dismembered leg with the hip bone protruding. The hip bone looks ridiculously fake, with plastic seams and the pin used to attach it to anatomy models visible. (00:26:05)

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)

Return to Sender - S1-E6

Trivia: (POSSIBLE SPOILER) When Masuka brings up the list of doctors authorized to get the M99, Dexter removes his alias note that Dexter's fake alias (used to get the M99 tranquilizer) is Dr. Patrick Bateman. Patrick Bateman is the lead character of "American Psycho". This was most likely an intentional "easter egg" of sorts within the show.

Father Knows Best - S1-E9

Question: The DNA test is a match, but later in the 2-3rd season we discover that Harry (foster father) had an affair with the real mother. Is Harry the real father and takes him but not his brother in because of that or not?

Answer: No, Harry is not the real father. While he did have an affair with Dexter's biological mother (Laura Moser), this was when she was his C.I. Dexter was already born at that point.
