Dr. Linus - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: Season 6, episode 7 "Dr. Linus": When Ben writes 'ELBA' on the blackboard, he underlines it with a curved line, but as he walks to the back of the classroom in the next shot, you can see over his shoulder that the line is now straight. The handwriting of the letters has also changed noticeably.

Continuity mistake: 6-01-02 - LAX: Before Hurley grabs a gun, while Sayid is lying down, his head position keeps swapping from straight in the close-ups to tilted to the right in the wide angle.

The End (2) - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: As Locke stabs Jack's neck in their final battle, the wound is visible, above the neck line of his shirt. Once the rain stops and Jack speaks of his plan and kisses Kate, the wound is missing for the entire scene. The wound reappears on his neck during Jack's scene with Hurley and Ben at the cave opening. During the final sequence as Jack lies down and closes his eyes, the wound is visible in most shots, but in the final two wide shots, the dry blood make-up appears to be coming off and once again there is no neck wound.

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Claire open the music box, from the back angles their heads are almost touching each other, but from the front angles it's noticeable that both guys are sitting wider apart.

Recon - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: Season 6, episode 8 "The Package": When Charles Widmore hands Jin the camera and tells him to turn it on, the lens is already out, therefore the camera is already on. When the shot cuts away you can hear him turning the camera on and the motor extending the lens.

Boobra

Ab Aeterno - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: Season 6, episode 9 "Ab Aeterno": When Jacob pulls Richard upright after dunking him, his hair flies back over his head, leaving his face fully visible. The shot changes to a front view and Richard's hair is now covering most of his face.

The Glass Ballerina - S3-E2

Benjamin Linus: Your flight crashed on September 22,2004. Today is November 29th. That means you've been on this island for sixty-nine days. And yes, we do have contact with the outside world, Jack. That's how we know that during those sixty-nine days, your fellow Americans re-elected George W. Bush, Christopher Reeve has passed away, Boston Red Sox won the World Series.
[Jack begins to laugh.]
Benjamin Linus: What?
Jack Shepard: [Still laughing.] If you wanted me to believe that, you probably should have picked somebody else besides the Red Sox.
Bejmain Linus: No, they were down 3-0 against the Yankees in the Championship Series and then won eight straight.
Jack Shepard: [Skeptically.] Sure, sure. Of course they did.
[Ben turns on a VCR.]
Joe Buck: Back to Foulke... Red Sox fans have longed to hear it! The Boston Red Sox are world champions! A clean sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Red Sox celebrate in the middle of the diamond here at Busch Stadium.

Trivia: The character Sun was created specifically for Yoon-jin Kim, after she auditioned for the role of Kate but the writers felt she was not right for the role.

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.
