Redux - S4-E7

Factual error: The Pakistan Air Force officer in the airport is listed in the credits as 'PAF Lieutenant' and is wearing the two pips of an army lieutenant. In fact, the PAF still uses RAF-style ranks, so he should be a Flying Officer, and the PAF also uses distinctive eight-pointed stars instead of pips.

Achilles Heel - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Sgt Brody first returns to the US, he's seen in uniform wearing a sergeant's three chevrons with one hash mark, indicating at least 4 years of service. Later, he's a Gunnery Sergeant, with two rockers below the chevrons, plus two additional hash marks to reflect the eight years he was a POW. In the episode "Achilles Heel," Brody and his wife attend a swank Capitol Hill party, but his dress blues have only the three stripes and single hash mark. Throughout the series, everyone addresses Brody as "Sergeant" and never as "Gunny," which is the traditional reference for a Gunnery Sergeant.

Shalwar Kameez - S4-E3

Character mistake: Carrie tells Aayan that she can arrange for him to study at the Royal College of Physicians. The college isn't a medical school; it's a professional body.

Redux - S4-E7

Other mistake: When Carrie leaves through the tunnel to the street, when she comes out of the store there's a shot of 2 people kinda looking at her. That shot was horizontally flipped - look at the sign on the door.

Shalwar Kameez - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Quinn is clean shaven when sitting by the pool with his girlfriend. The action shifts to Carrie in Pakistan and then back to DC where Dar confronts Quinn in the motel. Quinn now has a mustache and a bit of goatee, which he has for the balance of the episode. While the precise timeline is unclear, everything is fast paced and it seems that virtually no time has elapsed, certainly not enough time for Quinn to have grown a mustache.

The Good Soldier - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Saul is at the terrorists' house talking to a neighbour, his arms are either falling down straight or bent, depending on if it is a front or a back shot.

Casus Belli - S6-E5

Plot hole: Later in the evening, after NYPD takes Quinn into custody, Carrie finds his cell phone, with pictures showing their home had been spied upon from across the street, as well as other evidence of a conspiracy. He had tried to hand her the phone right after the police broke in, but it was knocked from his hand and she discovered it under the smashed door. In the real world, Carrie's home would have been considered a crime scene and the police would have searched it thoroughly, top to bottom, undoubtedly finding the phone themselves, but are shown driving away after the confrontation.

The Good Soldier - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: SPOILER - When Brody and Carrie are in the car having sex with her laying down, the shots behind her head show a big amount of space in-between her head and the door, yet the front shots show it squashed against the door.

Beirut Is Back - S2-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Carrie is brought back home, watch the lower part of the SUV and you can see the crew members walking. In the opposite angle, there's (obviously) no one there.

The Drone Queen - S4-E1

Factual error: The man who approaches Carrie in the bar identifies himself as a 'lieutenant JG', and the pilot who bombed the wedding party in the farmhouse. However, it was F-15s that dropped the bombs on the farmhouse, making them US Air Force aircraft. The USAF rank structure doesn't include the 'JG' rank- that's a US Navy rank.

Season 5 generally

Factual error: Throughout the season, it is the BND who run security investigations within Germany. The BND is the German external intelligence service. The internal security service, who would actually be running these investigations, is the BfV. Neither service has a power of arrest, which BND agents exercise on at least two occasions during the season. If they need to arrest somebody then they must call in the Bundespolizei (as they do correctly at other times).

Factual error: When the possibility of Numan being sent back to Turkey arises, Carrie says "They will execute him..." The death penalty does not exist in Turkey.

Why Is This Night Different? - S5-E4

Factual error: The cars on the airstrip have Swiss plates starting with RF. No canton uses these letters, nor the shield depicted on the plates.
