The Thing You Love Most - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Emma is reading the Storybrooke Daily Mirror in Granny's Diner, the article on the front page is just the same block of text repeated three times. (00:12:10)

Ariel - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: After Ariel stabs the Evil Queen in the neck with a fork, Ariel and Snow White jump into the ocean to swim away. In the underwater shot, you can see that the ones swimming through the water are not Ginnifer Goodwin and JoAnna Garcia Swisher, but their stunt doubles. (00:29:20)

Desperate Souls - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: After the scene with Emma and Henry at the playground, there is a wide shot of Storybrooke Main Street. As the camera pans down, in the upper right hand corner, you can see the clock tower, but without the top two stories (the top two layers of the clock tower, including the clock, are CGI). (00:06:15)

The Jolly Roger - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: When David is letting Henry drive his truck, there is a close-up of Henry, followed by a wide-shot of the car where the tires are screeching, and you can see that the one who is actually driving is Jared Gilmore's stunt double. (00:30:15)

The New Neverland - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: As Pan (in Henry's body) is first looking through Henry's storybook, after he turns the page, the left page is just text. Cuts to a different angle, and the same page has a big picture on it. (00:13:10)

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: As Emma exits the crypt, in the wide shot, Regina's left hand, holding the flowers for her father's grave, is at her waist. In the next shot, her hand is down by her side, before she brings it up to show the flowers. (00:33:35)

True North - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: As Emma returns to the apartment, Mary Margaret is folding clothes on her bed. As she sees Emma, she's holding out her arms, but in the next shot, her arms are down by her side. (00:37:05)

Snow Drifts - S3-E21

Revealing mistake: When future Hook is trying to stay hidden while Emma is making out with past Hook, there is a wide shot where future Hook sneaks past a corner, and you can see the face of Colin O'Donoghue's body double. (00:33:20)

A Tale of Two Sisters - S4-E1

Deliberate mistake: Elsa's dress in Season Four is different from the dress she was wearing in the Season Three finale. The new dress is a different shade of blue, and has a completely different design, even though the present day events of Season Four take place mere moments after the end of Season Three.

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When Emma and Graham are chasing after the wolf into the graveyard, there is a shot where the wolf turns its head toward them, closes its mouth and perks up its ears, while growling. The wolf howls, before turning its head toward them again, and you can see that it is exactly the same shot that was used earlier, only this time, the wolf can be heard whimpering. (00:28:40)

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When Hook and Emma are climbing up the beanstalk, as Hook remarks, "First beanstalk?", you can see that Colin O'Donoghue is actually gripping the vine with his left hand, which is covered up by his sleeve; the hand that was cut off. (00:08:50)

Kylantha

The Crocodile - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Rumplestiltskin rips out Milah's heart, Killian catches her as she falls down. In the first shot, the back of her head is resting on his shoulder. In the next shot, her position has changed, and her head is resting on his arm. (00:28:10)

Kylantha

The Crocodile - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Before the duel, as Rumplestiltskin says, "Sorry, but killing a man with his own sword was just too delicious to pass up", Killian's right arm is bent. In the next shot, his arm is down by his side. (00:17:25)

Kylantha

The Crocodile - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: As Killian Jones and Rumplestiltskin duel, there is an overhead shot of them fighting, and in the next shot, you can see that Robert Carlyle and Colin O'Donoghue have been replaced by their stunt doubles. (00:17:35)

The Thing You Love Most - S1-E2

Factual error: This episode takes place the day after Emma decides to stay in Storybrooke and time started moving. According to "The Stranger" and "Selfless, Brave and True", August woke up in pain in Phuket on October 24, 2011 at 8:15am, the exact minute that Emma decided to stay in Storybrooke at 8:15pm. Since Thailand is 12 hours ahead of Maine's timezone, this means that time started moving in Storybrooke on October 23, and that this episode takes place on October 24. During Regina's conversation with Emma in her office, she says, "Did I know that my son comes to my office every Thursday at precisely 5pm so I can take him for dinner before his therapy session? Of course I did." However, October 24, 2011 was a Monday. (00:30:05)

Dreamy - S1-E14

Factual error: In "What Happened to Frederick", Kathryn learns about David's affair and confronts Mary Margaret at school (after taking her anger out on Regina), where students and teachers are milling about. Later, she apologizes to Regina for "what happened yesterday", whereas Emma, earlier that day, seeks out Henry at school. Kathryn leaves Storybrooke the same day, and mysteriously disappears. According to Kathryn's phone records in this episode, she disappeared on a Sunday. However, the day she left, and the day before, was a school day. In the U.S., school classes are not in session during weekends. (00:38:25)

Snow Drifts - S3-E21

Audio problem: As past Hook carries Emma aboard his ship, he drunkenly and loudly declares, "Behold! The Rolly Joger." Although they are several meters away from the camera, you can see that his lips are barely moving. (00:32:15)

Kylantha

Dreamy - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Mary Margaret and Emma are walking down the street, as Mary Margaret says, "This is the best I can do", she begins to walk past the corner of a building. In the next shot, they begin to walk past it again. (00:05:15)
