Visible crew/equipment: As the people of Troy are about to be attacked by the warriors in the horse, the camera pans up to the side of the wall where Deiphobus is talking with another soldier. You can see a crew member crouching down behind them wearing a white and grey shirt. (00:30:35)
Revealing mistake: When Gabrielle is hitting her staff against the tree and screaming, if you look carefully for the last hit, the staff is bent. Most of their props were rubber with a metal rod inside them. The actress bent the metal rod because she was hitting so hard.
Factual error: The error begins in this episode and continues in Season 1 Episode 12: "Beware Greeks Bearing Gifts." Near the end of The Reckoning, Xena and Ares are talking about making Xena "the architect of a new world". Xena says that she'll need an army. Ares tells her she can have anyone she wants. She mentions Achilles and Agamemnon in her list of warriors and then follows up by saying "they're long gone." In "Beware Greeks Bearing Gifts," the Trojan War is going on. This is historically inaccurate as Achilles was killed in the Trojan War and Agamemnon was the leader of the Greek forces in the Trojan War and wasn't killed until after it was over. (00:36:25 - 00:37:00)
Continuity mistake: When Callisto and Xena first battle on horseback, Xena knocks Callisto's sword to the ground and Callisto escapes. When Callisto is training with Theodorus and the army at their hideout, her sword has reappeared, although she didn't pick it back up at the village.
Continuity mistake: When Xena starts chasing down Callisto after the attempt on the Oracle's life she has her sword in the sheath on her back, as can be plainly seen when she jumps on Argo. A couple of seconds later, there are a few shots of her charging after Callisto without her sword, which comes back in the sheath once the chase gets in open field. (00:23:00)
Revealing mistake: When Xena is fighting Celano, right after he grabs his knife to try and kill her, the shot changes to Xena, who after dropping back to the ground is supposed to be unsheathing her sword, but actually has it out already and just pretends to. (00:39:00)
