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 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)

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 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.

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.

Mhysa - S3-E10

Joffrey: I am the king! I will punish you.
Tywin: Any man who must say "I am the king" is no true king.

Kissed by Fire - S3-E5

Question: Although Tywin is Cersei's father, she is Queen Regent. Isn't she still in a higher place of power than him, and able to refuse to marry Loras?

Answer: As Hand of the King, Tywin is the second most authoritative person in Westeros behind only the king. The Hand's duties include sitting on The Iron Throne and dispensing order, justice and judgment, similar to what Ned Stark did in the Season 1 episode "A Golden Crown" while then-king Robert Baratheon was out hunting. It's also worth pointing out that Tywin's enormous wealth makes him the de facto most powerful person in Westeros, which he demonstrates in the Season 3 episode "Mhysa" when he sends King Joffrey to bed without his supper and remarks to Tyrion "You're a fool if you believe he's the most powerful man in Westeros. Do you really think the crown gives you power?"

Answer: The position of Queen Regent is largely a cipher as the Hand of the King is the actual regent for the king, handling day to day affairs and heading the small council. Tywin is still the leader of House Lannister and commands the army. Cersei's power derives from him, mostly. This is why she cannot truly counter Tyrion when he is acting Hand of the King or Master of Coin, both given by their father. She only starts acting like a queen when Tywin is dead.
