Corrected entry: Shawn Brady enters the church in Gallway, Ireland where Colleen Brady (his sister) was a novice on the show on 7/18/07. After dipping his fingers in the holy water, he crosses himself like an Orthodox Christian, not a Catholic. Orthodox Christians cross themselves with the three fingers of their right hand together and after touching their head and chest they touch their right shoulder first and then their left. This is very odd, since Shawn would never do this as an Irish Catholic.
Corrected entry: In an epsiode at near the end of May '07, Phillip has Claire and Belle on a boat in the South Pacific, sailing away from Tinda Lau and towards Australia. While holding Claire on the deck of the boat, Phillip points out the constellation Casseopia to her. Casseopia is only visible in the northern hemisphere. They shouldn't be able to see it at all in the southern hemisphere.
Corrected entry: In recent episodes (late 2005), Marlena is having memory flashes of her alleged life of dating and getting married to Alex North, but the footage they're using for these flashes is actually 20-year-old footage of Marlena's life with Roman Brady. Wayne Northrop, who now plays Alex North, actually played Roman Brady from 1981-1984, then again from 1991-1994, while Josh Taylor, the current Roman Brady, played a character named Chris Kositchek back then, taking over the role of Roman Brady in 1997. Now, they're using this footage of Wayne Northrop playing Roman Brady, but claiming it's Alex North. even though Alex North never existed as a character in the show's history until recently.
Corrected entry: In September of 2003, everyone seems to immediately assume that Alice Horton is becoming senile when she says that she has been seeing the ghost of her dead husband Tom. The general consensus in Salem is that there's no such thing as ghosts. How can everybody be this incredulous, when they all know full well that Marlena was possessed by the Devil in 1995?
Corrected entry: At the very end of the 5/31/05 episode, Phillip and his army unit are fighting in Iraq, and he falls on his face in front of a hand-made sign that says "Danger: Mine Field." There are 2 major problems with that. 1, if they're in Iraq, why is that sign written in English handwriting? 2, the purpose of a mine field is to kill people by surprise. so why would there be a sign indicating the mines being there?
Corrected entry: While Shawn is in the war zone, talking to Belle on the phone, and Belle is telling Shawn how Phillip is honoring his vows to defend his country and she should be honoring the vows she made to him, she reaches for a shelf and touches a wedding picture of herself and Phillip. It isn't possible for there to be a wedding picture, considering Shawn drove a motorcycle through the church's window at the very end of the ceremony, and Belle was taken to the hospital, after which she went home and Phillip went to war. There was never a time after the wedding that pictures in their wedding clothes were ever taken.
Corrected entry: In February, 2004, Victor was electrocuted in the tub. The lights in the Kiriakis mansion flickered, and Nicole mentioned to Brady that "It's an old house." But the house isn't old at all. It was rebuilt from the ground up in 2001 after Kate burned down the old house.
Corrected entry: When Abe Carver was shot on the day of his son's Christening, as he lay in the hospital bed, he had a flashback of talking to his attacker in a friendly manner, suggesting he knew who it was. He told the killer he had his bullet-proof vest on, and was then shot in the neck at close range. However, when Marlena was revealed to be the Serial killer a few months later, the flashbacks shown were of Marlena lurking in the bushes outside of the Carver house, shooting Abe from a distance. But how could that be if they were having a friendly chat? She'd have no time to run to the bushes to kill him.
Corrected entry: Marlena murdered Doug in the graveyard in March, 2004, after luring him there by claiming there was a pay phone nearby. But Doug is a lifelong Salem resident, and should have known damn well that there was no pay phone in the area. It was ridiculous that he would follow her, especially given that he knew she was the serial killer.
Corrected entry: On 10/6/03, Kate asked Marlena not to reveal her secret past with Stefano. Kate says she doesn't want Roman to know that she was was once a "high priced call girl." The error here is that although Kate mentioned to Marlena that she did indeed have a past involvement with Stefano, she never said exactly what it was. So this would be the first time Marlena was hearing that Kate had ever been in that line of work, and surely she would have been shocked. Instead, the scene was written as though Marlena already knew about it.
Corrected entry: On the 1/15/03 show, Mimi was talking to her older brother on her cell phone, but there was never any mention of her having an older brother. When they were homeless a few years back, there was only Mimi and her little brother, Connor. And when Judi Evans Luciano came back as Bonnie, she said something about doing what's best for Mimi and Connor, indicating that she only has two children.
