Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: On their way back to the hatch with the dynamite, Kate, Jack and Hurley run from the "monster" but Locke runs toward it. When he lands on his back the shot cuts away to the "Lost" logo floating onscreen. When it cuts back to Locke, in this shot the bruise is over his right eye, instead of his left. The shot is flipped.

Continuity mistake: At the airport, when Hurley rushes to make his flight the sweat stain on his t-shirt changes drastically between shots, so by the time he boards the plane - it goes from drenched to much less wet.

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: After Sawyer ties the rope to the rudder, they pull him toward the raft. In the shot just before Michael says, "Come on, buddy," the sail is completely up, yet in the previous and following shots the sail is down. (00:35:30)

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: When Jack hangs onto Locke, after Kate throws the dynamite into the hole, in Locke's next close-up, the wound on his forehead (grazed from Shannon's bullet) is on his right, whereas it's normally on his left. The shot is flipped.

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: When Shannon carries and drags the luggage (some of Boone's) she breaks down and Sayid speaks to her. When he says, "It won't be too much if I carry it for you," he strokes her cheek with his left hand - note the watch. After he says, "I have a hike to lead," in the next wideshot he's still holding her face with his "left" hand. But, note the lack of watch, and her large suitcase is now backwards. They flipped the shot so his right hand would appear to be his left, to keep hand continuity, but it doesn't work. (00:17:10)

Revealing mistake: Locke is chased and grabbed by the "monster," and is subsequently pulled through the jungle on his stomach. Just after Jack jumps and grabs him, Terry O'Quinn's right pant leg comes up and his black shin pad is clearly visible, as he is being dragged.

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: After Sawyer jumps into the water to retrieve the rudder, Michael tosses him the rope then shouts, "Tie it around the rudder and we'll pull you in." Three shots later, in Sawyer's close-ups, mountains are visible at the right of the screen, whereas in the previous and following consecutive shots they are surrounded only by water at this point in time.

Continuity mistake: On the raft, when Michael walks over to Jin with the translation notebook, as Jin tinkers with the rudder, Jin's hand and handcuff change repeatedly in the following shots. (00:47:15)

Factual error: Hurley arrives at the departure gate and calls to the woman to wait and let him board. As he goes through the gate, a sign with the word 'authorized' is visible to the left. This scene supposedly takes place in an Australian airport, but this is the American spelling - in Australia, the word is spelled 'authorised'.

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: In the shot of Michael, just as the raft hits the log, the "ladder" and sail are directly behind him and Sawyer is gone, whereas in the previous and following shots Sawyer stands on the ladder, in that exact spot. (00:34:00)

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: When Sayid goes over to Shannon to help her with her luggage her trunk falls down open and some clothes fall out. Then Sayid picks up some shirts. But when it cuts to Shannon grabbing them from him he is holding fewer and different looking shirts than he picked up first. (00:16:15)

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Visible crew/equipment: As the "rescue" boat nears the raft with Jin, Sawyer, Michael and Walt, it has a spotlight shining on the four aboard the raft. That spotlight is the only light source in the area, yet the boat is bathed in bright light from behind, which also reflects in the boat's pole. (01:12:00)

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: In the first shot of Locke sitting in the wheelchair, in the airport lounge, he sits alone directly in front of the long rows of chairs. However, in the next overhead shot, the airline steward is at Locke's side as he sits near the large windows, nowhere near the chairs. (01:03:15)

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: In the Oceanic Int'l departure lounge, Locke sits in his wheelchair near the large window, with the doomed plane in the distance. The attendant's desk is on the left, but the black lounge chairs, which are normally situated toward the center of the lounge, are gone in this shot; the chairs at the end of each row should be visible at this angle. These chairs are also seen when Hurley crashes the scooter into them. (01:03:15)

Continuity mistake: At the airport, after Sun spills coffee on Jin, as he heads to the lavatory the large stain on his dress shirt is at the same height as the shirt pocket, yet, in the next shot the stain is much lower, below his stomach. (00:12:25)

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: When Michael sits with Walt at the airport, Michael says, "If you're worried about Vincent," and the newspaper in his hands is folded and held straight up with the blue Oceanic envelope. Yet, when he says, "Dogs fly in the luggage compartment all the time," the newspaper is sideways and there is no blue envelope. (00:30:55)

House of the Rising Sun - S1-E6

[While fleeing from an angry swarm, Kate takes her shirt off as insects are trapped in it. Charlie later finds her and hands her the shirt she dropped with a questioning look.]
Kate: It was full of bees.
Charlie: [Looking at her chest.] I'd say more like C's.

The End (2) - S6-E18

Question: I recently submitted a question about whether everyone died on the plane or on the island. The answer I got was unsatisfactory. The answer was they did not all die in the plane crash but on the island where the events in the show really did happen. If this is the case, everyone in purgatory at the end makes no sense. If they all died on the island, then where were other characters like Michael, Ecko, etc. Also how did Kate, Sawyer, Hurley, Ben, etc. end up dead and in purgatory at the end of the series? Last we saw them they were still alive on the island. Are we to assume that everyone died at the end of last season when the bomb went off? I need more info here.

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: None of the main characters died in the plane crash. Many died on the island after the crash (Jack, Charlie, Sun, Jin, Daniel, Juliet, others), some lived on the island for an apparently long time after the crash (Hurley, Ben, Bernard, Rose) but some lived lives off the island after the crash (Sawyer, Kate, Claire, Miles, Aplert, and Lapidus). Remember that Christian tells Jack that "time has no meaning here," (in Purgatory). When everyone meets at the church, they are at the end of their lives however long that may have been and will now "move on" together. They look like they did on the island because that is the way they best remember each other.

That has to be the clearest explanation of the ending I've ever read.
