And Then There Were 7 - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Quinn falls in the well, he falls through and subsequently destroys the well cover. At the end of the episode when the Secret Service boys show up, an undamaged cover is lying next to the well, which Kellerman uses to cover it up. (00:29:30 - 00:38:30)

Ogygia - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: On the tombstone in the previous episode, Michael's date of death is 11.4.2005. But in this episode, when Linc goes to the graveyard to visit Michael's grave, his date of death is 11.4.2010. It is also a different grave from the original, as the original was in South America beside the beach, and here we are led to believe it is in New York. (00:50:50)

Killing Your Number - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: Sucre and C-Note came to Michael's help with dealing with the general. Sucre has noticeably longer hair than normal. In the next clip his hair is gone. (00:20:00 - 00:21:00)

John Doe - S2-E14

Plot hole: In this episode, Kellerman insists that there is no way of identifying Stedman. The brothers ask about DNA, dental records, etc. Kellerman states that they were erased. However, Stedman's DNA can always be tested and compared to that of the president. DNA will show that they are siblings. There is no "erasing" that.

New this week Suggested correction: In order to do this though they would need the presidents DNA. She knows the truth so would deny a sample voluntarily. So the police would have to get a warrant for the DNA sample. No judge would ever sign that warrant as it could be considered career suicide.

End of the Tunnel - S1-E13

Other mistake: When Michael climbs up the rope to get to the room below the infirmary, the rope is hanging from the manhole cover, but he still manages to lift the cover whilst hanging from it. In the next shot where he looks down the manhole, its clear that there is nothing other than the rope he could have held on to while lifting the cover. An impressive accomplishment, defying the laws of gravity. (00:38:00)

Fire/Water - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Scofield has water poured in to his glass the water level isn't even a quarter full, however, when it cuts back the glass is half full. (00:02:00)

Season 1 generally

Factual error: When Michael fills the tank with water (below the stock room), he then strips his clothes off, and slides down a pipe and into the water at the bottom of the tank. Since the water level was way above him, the pipe he slid down and the access to get there would have been flooded also. There was no water in the pipe he slid down, so for that area to be dry, it would have to be above the water line.

Going Under - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: Michael is discussing a bargain with Sara but when he first draws it out it's in squares, then when the clipboard is lying flat on his stomach the letters are circled.

Unearthed - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: After Lincoln and LJ have been recognized by the waitress, they speed off down a road. During their conversation in the car, whenever we see LJ from (his) right side, his hair is blowing in a strong draft, and is blown away from the temple. In all other shots, his hair is completely calm, and is hanging down and forward, covering his right temple completely. (00:13:50)

The Sunshine State - S4-E16

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Sarah crashes into the agent's buggy, you see they have been replaced with dummies. When the car first hits, you see one of the dummies fall out, but they are both seated in the next shot. Also you see that it is not Sarah driving but a man. (00:36:50)

Melissa Jane Swift

Disconnect - S2-E12

Plot hole: The Kansas police arrest Bellick for, and he is subsequently convicted of, Geary's murder based in part on a threatening voice mail he left on Geary's phone. But the message's time and date would match the records of Bellick's admittance into the hospital, thus proving him innocent of the crime.

Suggested correction: Not necessarily, The Kansas police would have to do an autopsy to determine cause of death and time of death. T-bag had killed Geary long before Bellick left the voice mail as shortly after, Roy's body arrives at the hospital. So the prosecutor could easily say the voicemail was left after Roy died to try and cover his (Bellick's) tracks.

Michael Scofield: This is going wrong in every possible way.
