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.

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.

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.

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.

In Which We Meet Mr. Jones - S1-E7

Deliberate mistake: Dunham comments that she works for Homeland Security. While the FBI is under the jurisdiction of the Justice Department, she works as part of a special Homeland Security task force; so saying she works for DHS is an accurate statement.

Factual error: When Walter removes the glass disk from Bowman's hand, he asks for a forcep, but is given a hemostat, which he uses to pull out the disk. My mother is a doctor, and when she saw this scene, she burst out laughing.

Inner Child - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Olivia calls Broyles to ask him to move the child, the shot of Broyles answering the phone is a recycled shot from the episode "Safe". In addition, the shot is flipped, as can be seen by the fact that Broyles' watch is on his right wrist rather than his left.

Pilot - S1-E1

Factual error: When the 747-aircraft of the fake German airline is being shown, you can see the German flag on the plane. But you also see an "N-xxxxx" registration which stands for USA. If it were a real German plane, it would have a "D-xxxx" registration.

The No-Brainer - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode, when Brian Dempsey is threatening to kill himself, the gun he is pointing at Olivia switches hands. He is holding the revolver under his chin with his right hand in closeups, but in shots of Olivia, he is pointing her gun at her with his left hand.

The Cure - S1-E6

Plot hole: When Charlie looks up the file on David Esterbrook, he says that the file shows that Esterbrook is directly responsible for INtREPUS' "controversial" R&D, including pre-natal gene therapy, human/animal hybridization, and viral warfare. Yet later, Olivia says she can find no dirt on Esterbrook who is, in her words, "cleaner than snow". If INtREPUS kept records of their illegal endeavours, then how come Olivia can't find them when the time calls for it?

The Cure - S1-E6

Other mistake: In this episode, we discover that Olivia shot her stepfather when she was nine years old. So how could she have possibly become an FBI agent after an incident like this?
