6 mistakes in season 12

(15 votes)

On the Arm - S12-E11

Character mistake: Lt. Gormley mentions a Captain (Captain Terrell) taking items On the Arm that is a 33-year veteran. Captain Terrell tells the PC that when she was 12 her brother was wounded in Iraq. If she has 33 years on The Job, there's no way she could have been 12 during the war in Iraq. The Vietnam War would have been more appropriate for the age and background of Captain Terrell. (00:00:21 - 00:14:33)


Silver Linings - S12-E20

Character mistake: After the explosion, Danny calls for a medic. At the hospital Baez ask Danny if the reason he called for a medic instead of a bus was it because it reminded you of something that happened. Danny was a Marine, so if he was having a flashback he would have called for a corpsman instead of a medic. Medics are in the Army, not the Marine Corps. (00:06:50 - 00:54:22)


Hate is Hate - S12-E1

Continuity mistake: Jenko and Witten confront a guy creating a commotion in a market. The felon runs past them out to the sidewalk where, somehow, the two cops are waiting and grab him.


Hate is Hate - S12-E1

Character mistake: Officer Rachel Witten tells Eddie the gun she has belonged to her dad when he was on The Job. In episode 15 of season 8 Gormley tells Frank that Witten's dad was a FDNY Battalion Chief and her uncles were police officers. In episode 12 of season 9 Officer Witten's dad Sgt. Scott Witten speaks to Frank about being on The Job. It's unlikely and not normal for someone to become a firefighter after being a police officer or vice versa or do both jobs.


Frank Reagan: I'm the PC. I know everything.

Show generally

Question: Why why does Danny always yell, "hey!" When he's is a half a block from the perpetrators which gives the perpetrators 1/2 block head start running from Danny. Why doesn't he wait until he's close to him and he wouldn't have to chase him so far?

Answer: It's a common cop show plot device. If the police on the show always acted in the most logical way (i.e. not alerting a suspect to their presence) the show wouldn't have the opportunity for an exciting foot chase.
