Continuity mistake: There appears to be a very obvious splice edit in this episode.

Adam Driver/Chris Stapleton - S41-E10

Continuity mistake: Star Wars Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base: After Tim says to the camera that "Dude, Matt straight up sucks!", it cuts to Tim and Zack sitting at a table against the wall where there was a Kylo Ren poster previously in the episode. The poster is now gone and there is blue substance splattered on the wall. This is the result of a scene that was deleted where Kylo got angry at the poster and ripped it off, throwing a drink at the wall. (00:00:50 - 00:03:55)
