Continuity mistake: When Jeff and the dark-haired kid are talking in the car, the little disco ball hanging from the rear-view mirror varies between swinging very gently and swinging with large, rapid movements, without anyone touching it. This is especially noticeable in close-ups, when Jeff is shown, the ball is moving violently, when the camera is on his friend the ball is barely moving. (00:01:50)

Continuity mistake: After Montoya has hauled Wesley to the top of the cliff, he drops the rope on the ground, where it lands forming a couple of coils. You can see this as Wesley sits down and Montoya leans up against the wall. However, when they start their duel, the rope is hanging straight off the cliff, without any coils in it.

Other mistake: When the setup for the first match is announced, the Ram is said to fight Tommy Rotten "for the strap", which is pro wrestling slang for a belt, meaning it was a title match. But after the match, which he won legitimately, The Ram is not announced as a new champion, nor is he ever referred to as such, and no belt is given to him after the match.

Continuity mistake: Ses. 5, ep. 5, "This Place is Death". When Daniel is telling Charlotte that he has a plan, and explains, "When we were back at the hatch, I talked to Desmond", he places his left hand on top of his right, holding Charlotte's hand between them (seen at bottom of the screen). When the angle changes to a shot above his shoulder, his left hand is suddenly back under Charlotte's head, with no time to move between shots. (00:32:50)

Continuity mistake: When Jack is walking into the medicine cupboard, he has a few small sweat stains on the back of his shirt. The camera cuts to show him turning to a different shelf, and for a split second you can see that his shirt back is now covered in a huge stain, and with large sweat rings under his arms. After he has injected Sayid, his shirt is completely dry again. (00:33:20)

Revealing mistake: The zombies' uniforms are all worn, decayed and dirty from being 60 years old, and being underground for most of that time. But there are some notable exceptions. The winter camouflage gear worn by two of the zombies is completely undamaged and pristinely white, and looks brand-new. In addition, when Vegard is thrown out of the zombie cave, the zombie who climbs out after him is wearing shiny black boots, that does not bear the slightest sign of having ever been worn.

Continuity mistake: "Our Father". At the end of the previous episode, "The Eclipse, Part 2", Hiro brought Claire to the rooftop of the Deveaux building to witness Kaito handing over baby Claire to Noah Bennet. To illustrate his point, Hiro showed Claire the exact same thing happening in the "9th wonder" comic book he brought with him, and she can follow the Japanese dialogue from there. But when the exact same scene is shown at the beginning of this episode, Hiro does not show Claire the comic at all.

Continuity mistake: When Sinclair drives the Bentley through the closing vault doors, she barely makes it, with both sides of the car scraping against the doors (as we can both see and hear). But in the next shot of them driving away, the car does not have any marks from being scraped up. Side mirrors are still intact, and even the paint looks fine.

Continuity mistake: When Inara finds Mal unconscious in his quarters, his head is resting up against the wall. When the angle changes to show her running over to him, he has moved away from the wall and his head is on the floor. After she has called for help, his head is once again up against the wall. (00:31:00)

Continuity mistake: During the duel, after Atherton breaks Mal's sword, he puts the blade to Mal's chest with his arm straight and his wrist slightly bent. The angle changes, and Atherton is suddenly holding the sword with his elbow bent and a straight wrist, in a completely different manner. (00:37:30)
