Beauty & the Beast

An Impossible Silence - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Catherine enters the precinct station, the desk sergeant places a small white file box on the counter. There's nothing else sitting next to this, but when the shot reverses, a tall black police radio with an antenna sticking up has appeared there. (00:16:10)

To Reign in Hell - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: The gold coin Vincent finds on Catherine's balcony changes from one scene to the next. When he picks it up, there's a very small section of it missing on one edge. When he shows it to Father in the following scene, nearly a third of it is cut away. (00:06:05)

Beast Within - S1-E6

Plot hole: The mob hitmen are about to enter the Sweeny family's house to kill them when the police van arrives to move them to a witness protection safe house. In the next scene, the bad guys abduct Catherine and try to force her to reveal where the Sweenies have been taken. Why? They could very easily have waited and simply followed the van. (00:36:30)

Beast Within - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Frank takes Catherine into the break room to meet his crew, two styrofoam coffee cups on the table keep moving closer together, then farther apart and back again throughout the scene. (00:11:10)

Continuity mistake: 3-10 "Invictus": Diana crawls several hundred feet through a corroded, rusty pipe and comes out in Gabriel's basement without a smudge on her anywhere. (00:41:30)

Continuity mistake: 3-10 "Invictus": Diana crawls through the pipe, which we were told at the outset is the only underground passage and is barely large enough for her to fit through. Yet after saving Vincent, she sends him back by the same route. He's twice her size and he's carrying the rescued baby, but somehow he manages to fit through. (00:39:00 - 00:41:50)

Siege - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Catherine enters the DA's office and passes his dart board. The six red and green darts lodged in the board rearrange themselves between takes. The colors are in a mixed pattern when she enters. One shot later, all the red darts are above all the green ones. When she pulls them free, they've returned to their original pattern. (00:36:00)

Beast Within - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: During the scene in the old man's apartment, a broken lamp can be seen already on the floor in the background - before the fight begins and before one of the thugs is shown throwing it there. (00:15:00)

Jean G

Terrible Savior - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Vincent sits on the precipice over the underground cavern and talks to Father, his face is in shadow. When the camera angle changes, his face is suddenly illuminated with yellow light. (00:22:00)

Nor Iron Bars a Cage - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: At the end, Hughes is stabbed and falls against the basement wall, touching it. When Catherine kneels down beside him a moment later, he's lying several feet away from the wall. (00:45:30)

Show generally

Plot hole: 3-11 "The Reckoning": Vincent reveals the underground kingdom to Diana for what is meant to be the first time. But she was already there twice in the previous episode, which was definitely not shown out of chronological order. She was taken below by the helpers to meet with Father, and was there again at the end when Vincent christened his son "Jacob." (00:08:10)

Jean G

Beast Within - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Frank and Catherine drive up to the loading dock and park in front of a bright orange 18-wheeler that's being unloaded in the background. When they get out of the car in the next shot, the orange truck has instantly jumped to a spot much farther down the dock, at least 50 feet away. (00:10:00)

Jean G

Song of Orpheus - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Catherine first approaches, Father is sitting on the cot leaning against the bars at the very front of the cell. In the next shot, as she walks past him, he is abruptly sitting on the other end of the bed, several feet away. (00:31:00)

Jean G

Dark Spirit - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: At the end, Catherine is face down on the floor as the voodoo cultist ties her hands behind her back. When the shot cuts, she's abruptly turned face up. (00:45:30)

Jean G

Masques - S1-E5

Other mistake: When Vincent is talking to Father about going to the masquerade party, you can see that both of his hands have fur and claws, but when he puts his hand on Father's shoulder and says "Don't worry", his hand is normal.

Vincent: Can I lead you through the dark?
Catherine Chandler: There is no darkness, Vincent, when you're with me.

Trivia: Linda Hamilton was pregnant during production and wanted to be written out of the show so her character Catherine was killed off at the end of Season 2. This caused ratings to drop and the show was cancelled halfway into Season 3.

Question: Kind of a long question but please bear with me. In one episode, Catherine and Vince have to rescue a boy who was being chased by a man who murdered his father. The boy claims to have a letter from his father detailing a crime that occurred and how he was killed for betraying the man. The end of the episode has the boy reading the letter out loud in court. The judge asks to see it and after a quick look over, he gives it to the man who was after the boy. When the man looks at it, there's nothing on the paper but squiggly lines. The judge then has the man arrested for murder. Why would the judge do this? There were no witnesses. All they had was the word of a boy and a piece of paper with nothing but wavy lines on it. No real evidence was presented to the judge at all.

Answer: (Episode 1x19 "Everything is Everything") It's not a regular court or judge, it's a Gypsy "kris" (court) to determine a new judgement for the boy, Tony, and it's headed by Milo, who is the Gypsy King. Milo had two sons, elder Eric (Tony's dead father) and Vick (Tony's uncle), who framed Eric for theft from the family business, and it was Milo (he didn't know the truth) who held the earlier "kris" which declared Eric, his wife and son, Tony, to be "marime" as if they're all dead and had them banished from the community. Then Tony's parents were in a fatal car accident in Chicago, and before Eric died he told Tony the truth about how and why Vick framed him. Now at the new "kris" Tony has the chance to speak to prove his father's innocence, and tells everyone that Vick lied and stole the money, then framed his father because Eric had been next in line to be the Gypsy King. Milo tells Tony that his word isn't enough for a verdict and he must show proof. Tony tells his grandfather that Eric gave him a letter, while on his deathbed, in order to clear his name and punish the guilty. When Tony pretends to read the letter (remember, we learned Tony can't read), he starts out as if the letter was written to his father, Eric, and cleverly pretends that it was written by Vick's accomplice from the theft (Vick's friend sitting behind him, who also works at the body shop), admitting to the frame-up. As Tony keeps "reading" we see Vick turn around to his accomplice and say, "You fool!" for the letter's admission of guilt, and then the accomplice replies loudly, "I didn't write no letter... You said nobody could prove nothin'!" for everyone to hear. So after the truth has come out, Milo shows Vick the letter which only has squiggly lines on it, just so Vick understands that even though the letter wasn't real, he and his accomplice still admitted their guilt for the theft, and now they will be "marime" as if they're dead and banished from the community. Vick did not murder Tony's father, and he's not arrested.
