Let It Bleed - S6-E21

Factual error: In the opening, H.P. Lovecraft is calming his nerves with alcohol. In real life, Lovecraft was a complete teetotaler, who even wrote stories about the evils of liquor.

Brian Katcher

No Exit - S2-E6

Factual error: When Sam and Dean are showing Jo pictures of H. H. Holmes' victims, the last picture was a victim that was not his. The final black and white is Jack the Ripper's third victim, Elisabeth "Long Liz" Stride.

Devil May Care - S9-E2

Factual error: When Sam and Dean show up at the crime scene to investigate, they are stopped by a woman wearing digital Army ACU's. She introduces herself as Sergeant Miranda Bates, even though she has rank insignia on her cover and her chest that identifies her as a PFC (private first class). (00:14:05)

The Benders - S1-E15

Factual error: Officer Kathleen looks for Sam's data in her database. The record ID is DF-23094. She then follows the link to Dean's record. Its record ID is also DF-23094. A database cannot have two records with the same ID.

Scarecrow - S1-E11

Factual error: At the beginning of the episode it is stated that we are in the month of April - yet in the orchard there are ladders, fallen apples and baskets filled with fresh fruit everywhere, as if it were harvest time. The god is declared to grant fertility and not climate change, so the harvest decoration seems definitely out of season.

Croatoan - S2-E9

Factual error: When the doctor says that the dead man has a high lymphocyte percentage indicating a viral infection after she looks down the microscope: 1) What they show in the microscope looks nothing like what is actually visible down a light microscope (especially the supposed lymphocytes) and 2) Even if she could see what they showed, it wouldn't actually indicate that the infection was viral.

Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox - S12-E6

Factual error: At the beginning of the episode it shows it taking place at Emerson Manitoba in 1980. After Mary saves the boy, Asa Fox, she drives him home. Sitting in the driveway is a Maroon GMC Sonoma circa 1994 - 2004. (00:01:45 - 00:02:30)

Shadow - S1-E16

Factual error: At the beginning of this episode, it says "one week later", then it shows Dean and Sam go to the victim's apartment. The blood is still bright red. After a week it would be darker.

Simon Said - S2-E5

Factual error: The man gets hit hard enough by the bus to knock his shoe clear off, yet when we see his body about to be covered up, there's only a small amount of blood on his mouth. If you get hit by a bus hard enough to make your shoe fly off, then there should have been more damage.

All Hell Breaks Loose (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: Before the Roadhouse fire, Ash and Dean are talking on the phone. Ash looks at his watch, on his left hand, it says 8:10, and has a black dial/face. As Dean and Bobby go through the rubble, Dean identifies Ash by his watch. Still on his left hand, it is now upside down, evident by the crown of the watch (used to move the hands of the watch) which previously facing his hand, is now facing his elbow. Also, the dial/face of the watch is now silver instead of black. This is a different watch, and was inadvertently put on the burnt arm upside down.

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.
