Seven Thirty-Seven - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: At the end of the episode when Tuco shows up at Walter's house in the backseat of Jesse's car, he tells Walter to get in. As they drive off, the shot pans out to show the street sign across from Walter's house. The sign says Piermont, which is the real name of the street. In the show, the Whites live on Negra Arroyo Lane. (00:48:00)

ABQ - S2-E13

Factual error: When the planes crash over Albuquerque, when the bear is falling towards Walt's house, there is a quick shot of Albuquerque suburbia and mountains. Two major streets are visible, the one on the right is Eubank Blvd and the one in the lower left is Wyoming Blvd, both which run north and south through the city. This means the shot is facing north. There are no mountains immediately north of Albuquerque as shown. The closest mountain range, the Sandia Mountains, are on the east side and wouldn't be in that shot. The closest mountain range in the north are the Jemez Mountains, which are 40 miles away. They would barely be visible in that shot (they would look like blue hills in the distance).

ABQ - S2-E13

Factual error: When the bear is falling through the sky after the plane crash, it is shown through its point of view. When it starts falling, a shot of northern Albuquerque is shown but when the bear turns over, suddenly it is facing the east. Eubank Blvd is a major north and south street, is seen in the shot of the north. In the latter shot, Candelaria Rd, which is a east and west street is visible. When the bear spun over, it should be showing Eubank Blvd going south.

Grilled - S2-E2

Factual error: Hydrofluoric acid is so dangerous that no high school chemistry lab in the US would have a thimble full of the stuff around, let alone gallons. While it's incredibly toxic it's also a very poor choice for getting rid of bodies, which Walt would know.

ABQ - S2-E13

Character mistake: Skyler places the baby's seat in the table, but forgets to buckle it up. It paces up the scene, but no mother in her right mind would forget this, plus the seat would fly away right after the engine starts.

Seven Thirty-Seven - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of season 1, we see the meth get weighed and Tuco tell No Doze to give Walter some more money. However in this episode the scene is different. We see Tuco give Walter the money which already includes the extra money. (00:02:15)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Walt and his wife are talking at the breakfast table the milk carton is facing a certain way. Five seconds later it has completely turned the other direction.

Walter White: I am not in danger, I am the danger.

Caballo sin Nombre - S3-E2

Trivia: There is a scene in this episode where Walter angrily tosses a box of pizza in the air in such a way that the pizza exits the box and lands on his roof. Before filming this scene, the crew had wondered how many takes would be required to achieve the desired result. Bryan Cranston nailed it on the first try.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Question: Why did Gus kill Victor?

The_Iceman

Chosen answer: There are several possibilities. Gus primarily does it to make an example out of Victor. Victor is one of Gus' most loyal henchman, and yet he had no problem killing him. Meaning it doesn't matter how loyal or valuable Walt is, he can still be killed and it won't bother Gus. However, Walt tells Jesse that perhaps Victor "flew too close to the sun." Meaning, Victor over stepped his bounds by learning how to cook meth. Gus didn't appreciate Victor's initiative and Gus only wants his employees to do the job they're given. Again, telling Walt and Jesse to do their job or else.

Bishop73

I think it was a combination of anger over Gayle's death and Victor being seen by witnesses makes Victor very vulnerable and therefore a dangerous liability to Fringe's empire.
