Character mistake: When Hank is brought to the hospital with gunshot wounds, the ambulance and its two EMTs are met outside by two doctors. One doctor says "Let's get him two grams of oxygen. What's his hemoglobin?" This episode's technical adviser was perhaps away for this scene. How much exactly is two grams of oxygen? Orders for administering oxygen would be given in liters, such as two liters per minute (LPM). The line is presumably meant to be 'two liters of oxygen'.
Factual error: The final scene of the episode, the cousins are hiding with other migrants amid a farm truck's bales of straw. One of the migrants claims they are in Texas. However, the mountains in the distance are the Manzano Mountains which are just several miles southeast of Albuquerque, more than 200 miles away from the border with Texas and Mexico. The migrant claims he has gone through this route 3 times, so it is unlikely this would simply be a character mistake.
Continuity mistake: When Hank is standing between the ATM and the pumps at the gas station, the shadow cast by the roof over the pumps shifts between shots. The shot from away, taken next to the pole with the Indian logo was taken earlier in the day, casting a long shadow. The other shots have a higher sun which has moved by several hours.
Continuity mistake: Walt is driving down a deserted road singing "A Horse with No Name." You can see the roadway behind him through the hole in the headrest. At first, the road is empty. But then a white vehicle quickly approaches. The camera angle changes and there are no vehicles behind him, but a police car coming from the opposite direction passes and makes a u-turn. When the camera angle is back inside Walt's car, the white vehicle turns out to be the police car that just made a u-turn.
Continuity mistake: When Walt asks for the RV to be destroyed, there is tape over the bullet holes on both the inside and the outside of the door. However, when Hank is showing the bullet holes to the owner of the lot, he takes the tape off the outside and the light shines on Walt. No-one has touched the tape on the inside.

Factual error: As demonstrated in the earlier scene where Leonel shot the truck driver/arms dealer, bulletproof vests do not make the wearer immune to bullets. Bulletproof vests are only designed to stop penetrating injury- they do not counteract the high energy of an impacting round, which can easily break ribs and cause internal injury. When Hank empties Leonel's dropped gun into Marco, Marco is barely staggered despite the fact that he just took five rapidly fired bullets in quick succession to his upper chest. That many hits at such close range in such a small zone would have, at minimum, shattered several of Marco's ribs and potentially punctured one or both of his lungs - both critical and incapacitating injuries on their own. As a result, Marco should have been unable to lift his gun to shoot Hank twice in the chest, much less swing an axe. Additionally, at least one bullet appears to strike Marco's clavicle and upper shoulder- both areas that are not protected by the vest.

Continuity mistake: While Walt is out of his car and arguing with the police officer, there are other cars visible in the far distance behind him. The cars appear and disappear in between shots, there isn't time for them to pass and we don't hear them pass.
Continuity mistake: When Walt is talking about his operation, in the hospital Cafeteria after Hank is shot. He says the line "Lying there waiting for them to anesthetize you." From one angle, he is shown looking forward, while from the next angle, he is turned around facing Marie.
Visible crew/equipment: Skyler is making copies and the scene starts with a shot looking down into the copier (the green light). When the shot lightens a bit as the copier continues, you can see the camera lens. This makes sense because the camera is sitting directly on the copier looking down.
Continuity mistake: Just after Hank crushes Leonel's legs by backing into him, Marco starts shooting into Hank's Jeep. You can see Hank crawling into the rear seat to escape through the side door. But as soon as the camera angle changes to inside the Jeep, Hank is back in the driver's seat and crawls out again.
Other mistake: At the end, we see the gunfight between Tuco's cousins and Hank. Several shots are fired, cars smash into each other, a woman runs off screaming. So not a "quiet" attack. However, as the camera zooms out to show the carnage, 2 people who are not involved in the attack, are just stood talking in the car park. A bit odd since there has been a very clear shoot out.
