The Blacklist

Wujing - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: In the shot of the assassins fleeing the scene of the bullet-ridden Range Rover in Shanghai, China, people are casually crossing the busy street in front of and behind the car. Nobody is looking at what just happened. Computer generated graphics were used to place the car and assassins' motorcycles in the shot. (00:00:50)

The Decembrist (No. 12) - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: When turning the guy with C4 around his neck, the 4 person safe box window shakes briefly. If this was a bomb proof safe box, the glass would be at least 1.5"+ in thickness and would not shake simply from some walking. That box would be shrapnel to a C4 bomb inside. (00:26:30)

The Skinner (No. 45) - S9-E1

Revealing mistake: Aram "hacks" an employee database via a company website - the code that's briefly visible on screen (slo-mo helps but isn't required) is just standard HTML that lays out a web page, not server commands.

The Scimitar (No. 22) - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: In scene where Liz is telling captive ex-husband, Tom, that she will let him go after he helps her get Berlin, Tom gets up and you can see the chain on his leg is only held to the floor with a chain link that just screws closed.

The Scimitar (No. 22) - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: When Elizabeth Keen removes the tape from Amalia's mouth after rescuing her, she briefly reveals the sticky side of the tape to the audience, showing another large swatch of tape attached to what should be the sticky side. This was done to prevent the actor's skin and provide easier removal.

Pilot - S1-E1

Factual error: The bomb is supposed to go off at the "DC Zoo", but the scene takes place at the National Botanical Garden, on the complete opposite side of DC from where the Smithsonian National Zoo actually is.

Cape May - S3-E19

Question: At the beginning of the final segment, the American Flag is flying upside down outside the beach lodge. Since it is pretty clear that Red would not being trying to elicit support/backup for the deeds that he and his female accomplice were about to undertake, what is the significance of this widely accepted distress signal?
