And Those We Left Behind - S4-E6

Plot hole: The very ending scene where Peter (in this version died in the ice as a boy so Walter's wife never met him) takes off some of the dust covers then picks up a toy airplane. The toy airplane he got as a child from ... Walter's wife when she was trying to placate him in an earlier episode for trying to run "home". This toy airplane wouldn't have been his as a child in this version of the universe.

The Box - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Walter tells Peter that the Cocabeans he bought can't be eaten, he takes the roasting pan off the bunsen burner. In the next shot, the pan is still on the burner.

Dream Logic - S2-E5

Factual error: When discussing whether Dr. Nayak's server could have been hacked, Agent Broyles says there was "no sign of a DDoS attack." A DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack is not a means of hacking into a server to alter data - it refers to flooding a web site with so many connections, through automated means, that legitimate visitors can't connect to it. It's a mode of attack that has no relevance to the situation they were discussing.

The Equation - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: The shots of Peter and Walter entering St. Claire's are recycled shots from the pilot. You can tell because their clothes change.

Night of Desirable Objects - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: When the typewriter is being used at the end, the keys being pressed don't correspond to the words appearing on the paper. Obvious from the start - the first letter pressed is on the middle row of the keyboard, but the first word typed is "unacceptable".

Inner Child - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: This is when Olivia goes to visit the boy at the hospital the second time. She and the guy from Department of Social Services go outside to talk. One of the shots is flipped. Note Olivia's notepad and the heart monitor by his bed.

The Road Not Taken - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: At the very end of the episode when Nina Sharp exits the elevator, she mostly steps out of the elevator completely before the masked men come and shoot her. However, when they review the security footage of the attack in the next episode, "There's More than One of Everything," you see that she barely takes a step before being shot.

Unearthed - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Charlie, Olivia's former partner and friend in the FBI shows up in this episode during the interview with Mrs. Rusk, but Charlie was killed off by one of the shapeshifters in a previous episode, and the shapeshifter that killed Charlie was himself killed off by Olivia, who in other episodes reflected back on killing him.

And Those We Left Behind - S4-E6

Factual error: In the final scene with Peter and Olivia in Walter's campus housing, Peter uncovers items that should have been in the house for years and they are dusty. The last thing he uncovers is a brand new flat screen HDTV with stickers on it, which would not have existed 17 years prior to then, when he was committed to St Clarie's Institution.

Midnight - S1-E18

Plot hole: When interrogating Boone, Olivia shows him a photo of a body with the spine torn out in the woods. This body hasn't been found yet, as a later scene has Olivia and Peter go to the same location and find the body. You can tell it's the same body because the shirt is the same in both the picture and the crime scene.

In Which We Meet Mr. Jones - S1-E7

Visible crew/equipment: During the shot where Walter is talking about Jimmy Hoffa while installing a light bulb, you can see the set and crew reflected on the metal part, including the audio coordinator with a boom mike.

The Cure - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: This episode takes place over one day. It's Olivia's birthday at the start of the episode, and at night, she gets the card from her stepfather, implying that it's still the same day. Right before Broyles yells at Olivia in the Harvard halls, there is an establishing shot of Harvard where it is nighttime outside, but inside the building, there's sunlight coming through the windows.

The Same Old Story - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: On the park bench, while talking to Peter, Olivia's hair moves back and forth over her right shoulder.

The Box - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: After Fauxlivia shoots Joe and is dragging him to the bathroom to dispose of the body, she hears a knock on the door. During this shot, she is dragging him with his jacket over his head, which she is gripping. However in the immediate next shot, she is still dragging him by his jacket, only the jacket is much lower.

Pilot - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Peter is watching Richard Steig in the interrogation room and gets up to go in there himself, he tells Walter to stay there. On the live video screens behind him, you can see Peter enter the room before he actually does.

A New Day in the Old Town - S2-E1

Other mistake: Just after Olivia wakes up in hospital, she's trying to explain what happened, and we hear a heart monitor getting faster and faster - the doctor looks concerned and says they need to get her pulse down. But when we cut to the monitor itself it shows her heart rate as 72 - a perfectly normal value.
