Suggested correction: It's not a dark jacket. It's still his shirt but since he's in the shadows, it just looks darker. You even see when the light swings you can catch a glimpse of the shirt.

Six Months Ago - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Charlie invites Hiro over to help celebrate her birthday, the invite is almost immediately after she says "hold that thought" and walks away from his booth.

Fallout - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: In previous episodes, when we see DL getting into the car as Nikki prepares to shoot him, he pauses for a second and looks around. In this episode, when we see the actual shooting, DL never looks around, he just opens the car door and prepares to get in, without pause.

Twotall

Distractions - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Peter and Claude are invisible and walking in New York, just after Claude has released his hold on the T-shirt rack, they bump into a man in a coat. Cut to a different angle, showing the two on camera, and the man in the coat is gone. Instead there are two girls and a man with glasses walking directly behind Peter and Claude, none of whom were there a split second ago. (00:02:05)

Twotall

Distractions - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sylar and Mrs. Bennet begin to talk, she becomes suspicious about his interest in Claire. When Mrs. Bennet picks up the phone to call her husband, Sylar visibly moves his finger to use his telekinetic power right before the angle changes. In the next shot, Sylar again does the same motion with his finger, but this time the phone is removed from Mrs. Bennet's hand.

Run! - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Meredith and Nathan are talking in her trailer, as he says, "I could have been a much better person back then", he has his sunglasses in his hand and places that hand on the table. Cut to a shot from behind him, and his hand is resting on the table with the sunglasses beside it, with no time to put them down and move his hand in between the shots. Also, when Meredith says, "You and me, we were never gonna work out", his hand goes from being on the table to his lap between shots, once again without having had the time to move it. (00:32:10)

Run! - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Matt Parkman gets thrown out of a window by Niki Sanders, he lands at least a few stories down and has a cut upon his head. The amount of blood on his head differs significantly from shot to shot.

Run! - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: At the end of ep. 1-14, "Distractions", Meredith calls Nathan to tell him about Claire. In that episode he is holding the phone to his ear, with nothing else in it. In the beginning of this episode, when the same conversation is shown, he is holding a pen in the same hand as the phone. Also, in ep. 14 Meredith said to him, "We haven't spoken in a long time, but... Our daughter just found me". In this episode, she says, "We haven't spoken in a long time, but I just had... Our daughter just found me".

Twotall

Run! - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In ep. 1-14 "Distractions", when Claire asks Meredith about her father, Meredith answers, "Well, that's complicated. Why don't you let me work on that for next time?" But when the same scene is shown in a flashback in this episode, Meredith says, "Well, that's complicated. He's kind of a big shot".

Company Man - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: When Claire gets killed she is wearing reddish brown boots, with her jeans tucked into them. She's still wearing them when her body is placed on the bed. A few moments later, running from the house with her mother, she's wearing sneakers.

Company Man - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: At the end of this episode, Noah is having a flashback. It shows Claire helping him pick out his new glasses. In this scene, Noah first tells Claire that she is adopted. However, in the episode "One Giant Leap", Claire tells Brody Mitchell that her parents told her that she was adopted when she was really little. In "Company Man" she is around 14 or 15 years of age in the flashback.

An Invisible Thread - S3-E25

Plot hole: If Noah could be brought back from the dead with Claire's blood why couldn't they bring back Nathan? Was turning Sylar into Nathan really the first thing they could think of?

More trivia for Heroes

Chosen answer: Because he's an idiot. From the story point of view, they needed the vault to actually be physically open so that the release of the virus would be a credible threat. Unfortunately, this required that Peter conveniently forget that he could simply walk through The Wall and use his telekinesis to tear the door open instead. Peter's increasingly large arsenal of abilities, where he ended up having pretty much any ability required for any situation, led to a situation where it became necessary to either have Peter apparently forget that he had a given power, as with the vault door scene, or become naively trusting, as with his refusal to scan Adam's mind to confirm his good intent. This problem, which simply made Peter look increasingly dumb as the show progressed, may well have been a key factor in the decision to severely reduce his ability during season three.
