The Night of the Big Blackmail - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Before and after the first freeze frame, West's hair is combed from the right side to left. During the next scene when West's hat comes off during the fight, his hair is combed from the left side. In the next scene in the boxcar, his hair is back to being combed from the right. In the last scene of this episode when West is in the boxcar, he has a completely different hair cut. It is much shorter than in the previous scene, very flat looking, and is parted on the left. This last shot makes Mr. West appear to have a receding hairline.


The Night of the Juggernaut - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: In the last scene right before West walks into the boxcar, the front of the train shows the number 16, and the square area around the front light is grey with swirl designs above and below the light. At the end of this scene, the last shot is of the front of the train, and it is showing the number 8 with the square area around the front light is red.

The Night of the Gruesome Games - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: Midway in this episode, West is fighting two men in a bedroom. One of them is pushed into the green chest of drawers and breaks it. It is obviously a prop, because the front is a flat piece of painted wood to look like drawers; there are no drawers when this piece falls apart.


The Night of the Kraken - S4-E6

Factual error: West and Artie are trying to move a cabinet from the wall. A closeup shot shows West's left hand entering from the right side of the shot to press a button that allows a secret panel to open. Unless West twisted his left hand 180°, then him pressing the button as shown is not possible.


The Night of the Fugitives - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: West uses a chandelier to knock down a thug wearing a brown vest against the opposite wall in the Saloon. When West gets up, the thug is now lying next to West and wears a green vest rather than brown, and is also closer to the Saloon's bar.
