Factual error: Joyce asks Will if he remembers when he was 8 and she bought him that giant box of crayons for his birthday - the 120 pack. Will is 13 in the show, so when he was 8, it was 1979. There were only 78 colors available in 1979 and the 120 crayons box was not available until 1998, almost 20 years later.
Other mistake: In the beginning when Kali and her gang are running from the police in Pittsburgh and she "collapses" the tunnel, her 008 tattoo is shown this way so we can read it as such, but it should in fact be read 800 to be the correct way. (00:03:15)Maren Kristine Ruen Nymoen
Continuity mistake: As Hopper and El sit down to breakfast after she has surprised him as a ghost, he tells her he will bring candy home etc. When the camera is on Hopper, El is leaning on the table, but when the camera is facing her, she is leaning back.
Continuity mistake: In episode 1, during Will's appointment discussing his episode, the doctor said "how did you feel, when you saw the storm?" Will then replies "Frozen." Doctor says "Heart racing?" Will: "Just frozen." Doctor: "Frozen? Cold frozen? Frozen to the touch?" In this episode When the doctor watches the tape of his conversation with Will from the previous episode the dialogue is different. On the tape, after Will says "frozen" the doctor then says "actually frozen cold?" Which he didn't say in the previous episode. And his actual lines from the first episode are missing.

Revealing mistake: When Bob and Joyce have lunch, Bob pops open a can of soda (which is period appropriate). The scene cuts to Joyce, then back to Bob. It is clear from how he is holding the can, and how he pretends to drink from it, that his newly opened soda is actually empty.
