The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Graham is arguing with Emma at the beginning of the episode, in the very first shot outside Granny's, they are approaching a shop called Worthington's Haberdashery. As the shot ends, they are still a few meters away from it, but in the next shot, they are already in front of it. (00:01:50)

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Sidney's newspaper article in 1-8 "Desperate Souls" stated that Emma was arrested in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1996. However, this is directly contradicted in this episode, which shows that Emma was actually arrested in Portland, eleven years before the frame story, meaning that the arrest took place in 2001 (since "Selfless, Brave and True" establishes that Emma arrived in Storybrooke in October 2011, and the frame story of "Tallahassee" takes place a few months later, in 2012; the year 2001 is confirmed in 3-22 "There's No Place Like Home"). (00:17:55)

Dreamy - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Bossy is cutting Dreamy's beard, Dreamy asks "Who was the woman I saw?" and Bossy stops cutting, but a couple of shots later, Dreamy's beard is suddenly much shorter. (00:10:00)

Going Home - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: In the convent, when the Shadow knocks Hook off his feet, sending him sprawling onto the ground, the one who actually falls down is Colin O'Donoghue's stunt double. (00:11:10)

The Price of Gold - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Graham offers Emma the job as a deputy sheriff, when he gives her his card, you can see two women a few meters behind Emma, walking on the pavement, toward the camera. In the next shot of Emma, only a few seconds later, the women are still walking in the same direction, but they are much further away from her than in the previous shot. (00:16:15)

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Emma jumps from the beanstalk and hits the ground, Mary Margaret turns her head to look at her. In the next shot, she turns her head again. (00:38:20)

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When Neal is being chased by August, he runs on top of a car before attempting to jump the fence. Just before he jumps on top of the car, you can see that the one who actually performs this action is Michael Raymond James' stunt double. (00:26:40)

Tiny - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: On the plane, Henry is eating baked goods from Cinnabon's. The size and position of the stains of frosting inside the box changes after he says "The only thing that could make this day any better, is more frosting." (00:40:25)

Tiny - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When Belle is watching TV at the Storybrooke hospital, her hair, hanging in front of her shoulders, changes position between the wide shots and the close-ups. (00:10:20)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Emma Swan has a flower tattoo on her left wrist. It can be glimpsed during her date with Ryan, and is visible when she's sitting at the table with Mary Margaret in "The Thing You Love Most", and when she's on the phone with Ruby in "Red-Handed." However, when she opens the door for Henry in "Pilot", the tattoo is gone. The same thing happens when she unlocks the door to her room at the inn in "The Thing You Love Most" (in the scene where she is evicted), and when she's pressing a pack of ice against her wound in "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter."

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: In the giant's treasure room, there are many giant gold coins near the skeleton of Jack the Giant Killer. The amount and position of the coins repeatedly changes. For example, when they find the skeleton, there are several coins on the edge of a small dais, but when Emma saves Hook from the trip wire, they are missing. (00:24:40)

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Emma is arrested, she has a flower tattoo on her left wrist. When she's climbing the beanstalk with Hook, in a few shots, her wrist is bare, and you can see that the tattoo is missing; this happens, for example, when she remarks, "You should be used to people not trusting you." (00:09:10 - 00:29:30)

The Crocodile - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Killian Jones is dueling Rumplestiltskin and is pushed into some barrels, you can see that the one who actually falls down is not Colin O'Donoghue, but his stunt double. (00:18:20)

The Crocodile - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Rumplestiltskin comes home and discovers that Milah is not there, the wool he's carrying keeps changing position in the basket. (00:02:10)

The Crocodile - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Aboard the Jolly Roger, Rumplestiltskin says "Do I forgive you? Can I move on?", while walking past Milah. In the first shot, he is right behind her, but in the following wide-shot, he has suddenly moved to a position several meters away from her. (00:26:40)

Kylantha

And Straight on Till Morning - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When Baelfire is getting ready to leave the Jolly Roger, his right hand, which is holding onto the sack he carries behind his back, keeps moving up/down between shots. (00:29:15)

Kylantha

And Straight on Till Morning - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When Baelfire attacks Hook, as Mr. Smee is heard saying "captain", Smee runs a few steps, before putting his hands on the railing. In the next shot, he comes running again, and once again puts his hands on the railing. (00:26:25)

Kylantha

And Straight on Till Morning - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr. Smee asks Hook why Baelfire is still aboard the Jolly Roger, when Hook says "Anyone who disobeys can walk the plank and pray the mermaids take pity on his soul", as he begins to walk down the steps, Smee is several meters away from that area, with his back turned (look behind the mast). In the next shot, he is much closer to the steps, and is facing the viewer. (00:26:20)

Kylantha

And Straight on Till Morning - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the scene where Baelfire confronts Hook about Milah, when Hook is talking to Smee, the hair on his forehead keeps changing between consecutive shots. (00:25:55)

Lacey - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Sheriff of Nottingham (his Storybrooke counterpart) tries to apologize to Mr. Gold, they're at the corner of the Rabbit Hole, and in some shots, the clock tower building is seen behind the Sheriff. In other shots, there's a completely different building behind him. In the same scene, Mr. Gold alternates between standing right by the corner, and standing a couple of meters away. (00:35:40)
