Snow Falls - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the horse carriage is ambushed, just as Princess Abigail can be heard screaming "Please, help me", the camera pans downward and a horse wrangler wearing a blue baseball cap can be seen in the lower left hand corner, hiding behind one of the horses.

Desperate Souls - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: After the scene with Emma and Henry at the playground, there is a wide shot of Storybrooke Main Street. As the camera pans down, in the upper right hand corner, you can see the clock tower, but without the top two stories (the top two layers of the clock tower, including the clock, are CGI).

Dreamy - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Bossy is cutting Dreamy's beard, Dreamy asks "Who was the woman I saw?" and Bossy stops cutting, but a couple of shots later, Dreamy's beard is suddenly much shorter.

Mother - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: In the first shot of the scene where Emma and the others arrive in Storybrooke in their cars, on the left side of the screen, you can see a sign behind a branch. It says "Steveston Museum and Visitor Centre." Steveston is the name of Canadian town which doubles as the town of Storybrooke on Once Upon a Time.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Emma has a flower tattoo on her left wrist. Throughout the series, there are subtle changes in its design, and its position on her arm. For example, when Emma is sitting at the table with Mary Margaret in "The Thing You Love Most", the tattoo has six petals, and is located about an inch below her hand. When she's on the phone with Ruby in "Red-Handed", the tattoo is much bigger, and the petals are arranged differently; it has also moved further up her arm, and is almost touching her hand. When she's arrested in "Tallahassee", there are five petals instead of six, the petals have a rounder shape (in "Red-Handed", they were rather pointy), and the tip of one of the petals is touching her hand. When she pulls her hair behind her ears at the tavern in "Snow Drifts", said petal is thinner, and is no longer touching her hand. When she touches Hook's face in the diner in "Birth", the tattoo has moved about a centimeter down her wrist, and the petals have a brownish color, but in previous episodes, the petals have no color. When she touches Hook's face in the Middlemist Field in the next scene, the color is gone.

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Sidney's newspaper article in 1-8 "Desperate Souls" stated that Emma was arrested in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1996. However, this is directly contradicted in this episode, which shows that Emma was actually arrested in Portland, eleven years before the frame story, meaning that the arrest took place in 2001 (since "Selfless, Brave and True" establishes that Emma arrived in Storybrooke in October 2011, and the frame story of "Tallahassee" takes place a few months later, in 2012; the year 2001 is confirmed in 3-22 "There's No Place Like Home").

The Stranger - S1-E20

Revealing mistake: In the very first shot of Emma and August on the motorcycle, you can see the faces of Jennifer Morrison's and Eion Bailey's stunt doubles.

The Evil Queen - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: When Regina is standing in front of Rumpelstiltskin's mirror at the end of the episode, as he asks, "What are you gonna do now, then?", the cloth that was used to cover the mirror is lying on the floor. When he transforms her back to her normal form, it is gone.

Dreamy - S1-E14

Character mistake: In the evening, Emma states that Kathryn Nolan has been missing for 24 hours, meaning that this episode takes place the day after Kathryn disappeared. When Emma investigates Kathryn's car, David tells Emma that he last spoke to Kathryn "yesterday afternoon" (and stresses that he is telling the truth), and that he hasn't spoken to her since he ended their relationship. However, "What Happened to Frederick" establishes that David broke up with Kathryn the day before she tried to leave town and disappeared, because when Kathryn apologized to Regina, Regina referred to the events surrounding the break-up as "what happened yesterday." Emma checks Kathryn's phone records and finds out that Kathryn talked to David on the phone the day she disappeared, but David could not have referred to that conversation, since "Red-Handed" and "Heart of Darkness" both establish that he doesn't remember the phone call because of a memory blackout. Making matters even more complicated is that when Sidney shows up with the phone records, Emma specifically says to him that David told her that he DIDN'T speak to Kathryn that day, which, in fact, he said he did.

A Tale of Two Sisters - S4-E1

Deliberate mistake: Elsa's dress in Season Four is different from the dress she was wearing in the Season Three finale. The new dress is a different shade of blue, and has a completely different design, even though the present day events of Season Four take place mere moments after the end of Season Three.

The Stranger - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: There's a flashback to the life of young Pinocchio, played by brown-eyed Jakob Davies. But adult Pinocchio, Eion Bailey, has striking bright-blue eyes. It's possible that a blue-eyed child may grow up to have brown eyes, but the opposite does not happen.

The Thing You Love Most - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Emma is reading the Storybrooke Daily Mirror in Granny's Diner, the article on the front page is just the same block of text repeated three times.

Shattered Sight - S4-E10

Revealing mistake: When Emma opens the door of Any Given Sundae in the 2011 flashback, you can see the backdrop curtain used to insert the Storybrooke main street, thanks to its shadow in the middle of the road and a few folds reflecting the light.

Shattered Sight - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: The flashback scene where the Snow Queen takes Emma's video camera away from Kevin differs from what is seen on the video recording of that moment in "Breaking Glass" and "Family Business." For example, in the recording, Ingrid says, "We respect property in this house, Emma." In the actual scene, she says, "We respect property in this household, don't we, Kevin?"

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When Emma and Graham are chasing after the wolf into the graveyard, there is a shot where the wolf turns its head toward them, closes its mouth and perks up its ears, while growling. The wolf howls, before turning its head toward them again, and you can see that it is exactly the same shot that was used earlier, only this time, the wolf can be heard whimpering.

The Price of Gold - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: When Sheriff Graham pulls in front of Emma in a police car, the big sign on the storefront behind Emma says "Storybrooke Coffee Co." However, as Graham gets out of the car, you can see a circular sign on the side of the building, which says "Steveston Coffee Co"; Steveston is the Canadian town which doubles as the backdrop for the town of Storybrooke on Once Upon a Time.

The Thing You Love Most - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Emma walks Henry to school, as Emma says "Because I'm the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming?", a reflection of the clock tower building is visible in the window behind her, only there's no clock (the top two layers of the clock tower, including the clock, are visual effects).
