Game of Thrones

The Gift - S5-E7

Deliberate mistake: After Ramsey shows Sansa her flayed northern friend, when it cuts to Davos riding the horse through the encampment one of the shots is flipped. Note his sword and his cloak's crossed straps have switched to opposite sides.

Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When the Sand Snakes attempt to kidnap Myrcella, as Nymeria Sand runs up to Myrcella to seize her, she is holding her large whip in her right hand. However, in the very next shot, the whip has disappeared, and Nymeria is now holding a dagger in her hand instead.

The Sons of the Harpy - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When the Faith Militant descend on Ser Loras Tyrell's training session there is a shot after the Militants have come down the stair of Loras fighting from behind a man's shoulder, in this shot you can see they are fighting on grass surrounded by walls with sheer drops with no entry point other than the stairs the militants walk down. In the next shot you can see the 9 militants that have come down the stairs approach Loras from one side, but suddenly 6 militants join him from the opposite side, where they definitely were not before. In the zoomed out shot you can see there is nowhere for these men to have come from. (00:11:15 - 00:11:50)

The Dance of Dragons - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the amphitheatre, while seated in the royal box, Daenerys is wearing a full length white gown with flat pumps and an ornate silver necklace with a large dragon motif on the left side. During the revolt when she is seen running across the fighting pit the dress is shorter and she seems to be wearing some sort of leggings underneath it. Daenerys escapes on the back of her dragon and when we next see her in episode 10 she is wearing a completely different knee length pale blue gown. The necklace also seems different with her hair spread out on her left shoulder to disguise the lack of the dragon motif. She is also wearing grey boots with a fairly high heel. Obviously dragons come with a secret baggage compartment.

The Sons of the Harpy - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: Towards the end there is a body of a dead Son of the Harpy lying between the fallen Unsullied and the side corridor visible in the wall, located very close to either. In the next show the body is gone. Also, as the camera angle changes, the blood stains on the walls look differently. (00:48:50)

Season 1 generally

Question: After watching the show and reading the first book, I can't figure out why people hate Jaime for killing King Aerys. Aerys is referred to as the "Mad King" and more than one person talks about his sick deeds. Even Ned doesn't seem to approve of Jaime's actions, yet Aerys killed his father and brother. Even if Jaime did have a duty to guard the king, didn't he actually do everyone a favor by killing Aerys?

Answer: Basically it's because he broke his vow. A member of the Kingsguard is sworn to protect the king at all costs. Jaime elaborates more on the deed to both Catelyn Stark and Brienne of Tarth, telling Catelyn that no matter what course of action he took, he would be breaking one vow or another (i.e. if he obeyed the king, he would conversely be disobeying his own father), and telling Brienne that the Mad King was planning on burning all of King's Landing, but he did not bother to tell Ned Stark that. Ned Stark felt that killing Aerys was dishonorable and excessive. Robert Baratheon still could have usurped the throne without Aerys being killed.
