The Conflict - S3-E1

Other mistake: While Martha Corinne is standing in front of the bathroom sink in the new house, we see her height compared to the mirrored medicine cabinet above the sink, and Martha Corinne is quite a bit shorter than the mirror's knob, even with her bonnet. When she reaches up to open the cabinet door, in the next closeup from behind her she is now taller than that knob. For this specific closeup the actress was presumably standing on a stool, in order to have the perfect shot of her turning her head, then being surprised by her own reflection in the mirror.

The Conflict - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Boone Walton's truck license plate number is T98254. When Blake and the U.S. Marshals drive up for the final standoff, Blake's truck license plate number is also T98254. When John-Boy runs up to Blake's truck to confront him, his front license plate number has changed again to T79825 (same as earlier, when Blake unloaded explosives), which is also the same plate number that was on another man's truck near the start of the episode. Finally, when the shooting starts and Blake's truck swerves to a stop, the back plate number is T37982. (01:27:55)

The Car - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When John-Boy finishes the roof repair he carries the ladder and places it beside the tree, then he notices the unlocked padlock on the garage door. In the closeup, the open lock is inserted through the latch facing the right, but in the wideshot the lock is inserted through the latch the opposite way. (00:25:25)

Continuity mistake: While Reverend Fordwick is speaking to the congregation at Sunday's service, in all three of Esther's closeups we see the girl who is wearing a blue dress and brown hat sitting behind Esther, but in other shots that girl is seated two rows in front of Esther and it's Jason and Ben who are seated behind their grandmother.
