Supernatural

Pilot - S1-E1

Audio problem: When Dean puts the cassette in the car stereo he reads 'Metallica' off it, yet AC/DC plays. [In the original version Metallica was played, but AC/DC was used in newer versions due to copyright issues.]

Dead In The Water - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When the Carlton son reaches in to pull the plug out of the sink you can see the plug chain on the cutting board to the left of the sink before he even reaches in, then he pulls it out and puts the plug chain on the board.

Dead In The Water - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When the girl is taking a bath, the water is so full that its almost overflowing. She gets into the tub and the water doesn't overflow. The faucet is still running and yet the water keeps changing from full to down below her shoulders.

Phantom Traveler - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the passengers board the plane at the beginning, the aircraft is a Boeing 737, noticeable by the crew jumpseats located by the entrance door. But the first scene you see where the aircraft is in flight, the aircraft changes to a Widebody Airbus, possibly an A310, noticeable by the different style of winglets that Airbus uses compared to that of Boeing. (00:02:15)

Bloody Mary - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Dean enter the Shoemaker home, a woman leaning against a wall holding a coffee cup starts to follow them down the hall. When the shot changes, the woman is back against the wall, talking to someone who wasn't there in the previous shot. (00:08:00)

Captain Defenestrator

Bloody Mary - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jill is looking at her 'Bloody Mary' reflection, the lines of blood coming from her eyes go down and straight over her mouth (because she hasn't smeared them like the real Jill has). But as she begins to talk, the lines switch from being over her mouth to off to either side of her mouth and back multiple times.

Skin - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Sam is tied up and eventually fights the fake-Dean in Becka's house, there is a shot that shows both his feet and hands tied. During the fight, both his hands and feet are shown free, but he only cut free his hands, and began fighting immediately after that. (00:25:20 - 00:25:55)

Skin - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Dean are tied up in the sewer, Dean gets out of the ropes holding him and the camera changes to Sam, but in the background you can see Dean with the ropes still around his arms & upper body.

Cybermoose

Hook Man - S1-E7

Plot hole: When Sam and Dean realise they need to destroy the hook to stop the Hook Man, they find out that it has been reforged into something else. They state it needs to be set on fire to stop him, but if it was melted down and reforged then it has already been set on fire and the Hook Man shouldn't be latched on to it in the first place.

Hook Man - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Dean break into Lori's dorm, Sam notices (and the camera pans towards) an open window. The camera then cuts to Dean. When the camera cuts back to Sam the window is closed. We watch Sam open the window and climb through it.

Hook Man - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: In the very first scene with Lori and Rich kissing in Rich's car, Lori's seatbelt is shown to be over her arm close to her shoulder. The camera cuts to Rich and back and the seatbelt is now behind her arm and lower without her having moved at all.

Bugs - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Sam gets the skeleton heads out of the back of the car, he brings the box in his arms long ways, but when the shot goes back to him it is turned the other way. (00:22:50)

Illyana Rose

Bugs - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Sam claims it is 12am and the the bug storm is on its way, but five minutes later the sun is shining. (00:37:00)

Home - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: The baby gets into the fridge, which then closes - we see a closeup shot of the babyproofing clip shutting itself. Then when the mother sees the spilled milk and realises what's happened, there are a few shots of the fridge - in shots from the front the clip's open, and in shots from the side it's closed. When she goes to open the fridge it's open again - she even fiddles with it to give the appearance of undoing it before opening the fridge door.

Home - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Sam tells the little girl to take her brother outside. The little girl runs out with her brother and Dean asks the little girl where Sam is, Dean runs to the Impala and grabs a shotgun. When Dean is running to the house, he runs on the lawn and you can see the shadow of the camera man running with Dean at the bottom of the screen.

Asylum - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Dean reads about the Roosevelt Asylum in his dad's journal, there is a picture of a Wendigo on the opposite page of the newspaper clipping but in a different scene, Dean checks the article again for information on the South Wing in the Asylum but this time on the opposite page of the newspaper clipping, there is no picture.

Scarecrow - S1-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When Dean thanks the professor before leaving the room, you can see the second camera pan down on the left side of the screen before it cuts to that camera's view. (00:28:40)

Dean Winchester: Come on man. I know Sam, ok? Better than anyone. He's got more of a conscience than I do. I mean the guy feels guilty searching the internet for porn.

Question: Not long after first meeting angels, it is established that they do not have genitals, or "junk" as Dean puts it. But in S06E10 Castiel gets an erection while watching porn and in S08E22, Castiel is required to kill a nephilim, the offspring of an angel and a human. If angels do not have genitals how are these two things possible?

Answer: Angels themselves may not have genitalia, but their vessels do. Nephilim occur when an angel in a vessel reproduces.
