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.
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.
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).
Continuity mistake: When Emma is arrested, she has a flower tattoo on her left wrist. When she's climbing the beanstalk with Hook, in a few shots, her wrist is bare, and you can see that the tattoo is missing; this happens, for example, when she remarks, "You should be used to people not trusting you."

Continuity mistake: In the giant's treasure room, there are many giant gold coins near the skeleton of Jack the Giant Killer. The amount and position of the coins repeatedly changes. For example, when they find the skeleton, there are several coins on the edge of a small dais, but when Emma saves Hook from the trip wire, they are missing.
Continuity mistake: The dove that Mary Margaret finds in the woods has white feathers with a reddish plume around its neck. When she releases the bird after the storm has passed, it is not the same dove. The dove that she releases is completely powder white, with a different colored beak.

Continuity mistake: When Red meets Quinn, the way her hood is draped over his arm changes throughout the scene. The same thing happens when Red is holding it afterward. After Quinn drops the hood, the way the garment is crumpled up on the ground changes between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Hook and Emma find the skeleton of Jack the Giant Killer, in the close-up shot, Jack's sword is in the skeleton's hand. When Emma remarks, "With that toothpick?", the sword is lying beside the hand. When Emma grabs the sword while being chased by the giant, the sword is back in Jack's hand. In addition, the skeleton's arm alternates between being bent and sticking straight out between shots.
Continuity mistake: After Henry runs up the stairs, he puts his backpack on the bed, with the backside facing upwards. When he takes off his shoe and throws it on the floor, the top of the backpack is facing upwards. When Regina enters his bedroom, the backside is facing up again.
Continuity mistake: The way the baby blanket is wrapped around the infant Emma repeatedly changes between shots. For example, as Charming approaches the magical wardrobe, the blanket has just a tiny opening over the baby's face, and the embroidery with Emma's name on it is showing; in the next shot, the opening is much bigger, and the embroidery can no longer be seen.
